Exclusive Wedding Venue

Exclusively yours, Swanbourne House provides a flexible setting to create the wedding you have always dreamed of. Welcome your guests with a glass of champagne in the Dining Room, or if the weather is fine, on the lawns overlooking the rolling hills of Buckinghamshire.
Couples looking for an intimate ceremony can say ‘I Do’ in the calming Common Room, with a capacity of 50 guests, this really is an intimate venue that leaves a big impression. For those with larger numbers, the lawns would be an ideal location for a marquee or Tipi for up to 350 guests. Take a look at our Tipi Packages for inspiration on outdoor events at Swanbourne. Please note we are still in the process of applying for a wedding licence, but expect this to be in place by 2025.
