Sweeping lawns and weeping willows, the gently flowing river and gliding swans, making your vows on our unique 19th Century river barge before enjoying your wedding breakfast in the Riverside Restaurant or Banqueting Rooms - no wonder so many prospective brides go weak at the knees when they visit The Swan at Streatley!
Ours is a truly delightful location on the banks of the River Thames in a picturesque Berkshire village that borders Oxfordshire, and is only 15 minutes from the M4 and Reading Town Centre.
Our other, not so secret, wedding weapons are our very own, fabulous Wedding Co-ordinator on-hand, at no extra charge, to provide advice and support and ensure the planning of your wedding is as enjoyable and smooth running as the day itself - and our brilliant team of staff just who can’t do enough for our guests. The praise and thanks they receive are numerous but here a few snippets:
"Our wedding at The Swan at Streatley was the best day of our lives! We booked our wedding eight months in advance and the planning stage was so enjoyable and exciting all thanks to the wonderful staff who met our every need. Jodie, the wedding co-ordinator, is calm and patient, creative and resourceful. Our ceremony was held in the beautiful barge which is moored on the Thames River, followed by reception drinks on the stunning lawns and wedding breakfast in the events suite. The location and setting is breathtaking and the food is fabulous." Mrs G August 2014
"We had our wedding ceremony on the Magdalen Barge, it was beautifully intimate and felt almost chapel-like without being at all religious. The food was excellent. One of the most fun aspects of the preparation was the menu tasting evening - and the service and quality of the food followed through to the actual wedding breakfast. We were hoping for a stress-free, fun and enjoyable wedding day, and the Swan made sure that we had exactly that!" Sue and Chris July 2014
"Every detail went smoothly the canapés were delicious and the staff attentive and efficient. Our after party for 170 guests the next day was also very well managed, food excellent and a blast. I must say it is a 5 star location by the Thames, we got married on the Magdalen College barge and it a very unique venue." Vanessa June 2014
