Lake District Weddings at the Swan Hotel

Your special day

Start your happily ever after 

Nothing brings a smile to our face like seeing a happy couple tie the knot. At the Swan Hotel, we’ve hosted weddings big and small, unique and traditional. We understand it’s not just about the flowers and first dance, but all the tiny details in between. We’ll have a hanky on hand for the inevitable happy tears, but everything else can be decided by you.  

The only things that come as standard when you get hitched at the Swan Hotel are beautiful spaces, stunning views and impeccable service.

If you’re looking for a wedding venue that’s truly special, the Swan is the perfect place for you. Nestled at the southern tip of Lake Windermere in the Lake District, the views are breathtakingly beautiful, and the hotel has a cosy but glamorous feel, well suited to a range of weddings styles from elegant to eclectic.

So, whether you’re planning a flowery, formal, fashionable or just plain fabulous celebration, we can accommodate you and your guests. But don’t take our word for it, book a viewing below!

Fabulous food...

For us, food is at the heart of every celebration with friends and family, but that doesn’t have to mean a traditional wedding breakfast. We cater for all tastes, kicking off with canapes, peaking with the main meal and finishing strong with evening buffets and munchies (vital fuel for dancing the night away).

We offer plenty of choice, whether you want a 3-course meal, a family-style feast or festival food stations to be grazed upon at your leisure. Late-night munchies can be handed round to your guests while they party or served buffet style.

...And fizz. Ooh, la la. 

If you and your guests are partial to a tipple or 2, our options for reception drinks is pretty extensive. Choose from champagne, prosecco, beer, cocktails, mulled wine or gin and tonics. We’ll also provide orange juice and water.

With the meal, pick your favourites from an equally impressive list of red, white and rose wine. Your guests will raise a glass of champagne during the toast and additional evening guests will also get a welcome drink.

Winter Weddings

The Lake District looks beautiful in all seasons but during the winter it can be a speculator wonderland for the perfect wedding. Think mulled wine, roaring fires and dramatic backdrops for those weddings snaps.

We have a discounted rate for winter weddings (November – March) with prices from £72 per wedding guest.
