Swettenham Arms Wedding

I’m super duper excited to share Tom & Lizzie’s Swettenham Arms Wedding with you! Their spring Wedding was the perfect relaxed gathering of all their favourite people set in one of Congleton’s loveliest venues, The Swettenham Arms.

Lizzie & Tom got engaged at the top of ‘mini mountain’ Shutlingsloe whilst on a walk at Easter last year. Tom had secretly measured up and bought the ring beforehand which came as a complete surprise when he got down on one knee! She said yes, of course!

Lizzie opted for a super relaxed morning and did her own make up whilst we met Tom and the boys at the church ready for her arriving with mum and sister for their lovely church ceremony. Despite an anxiety inducing weather forecast all week, we managed to avoid the rain all day!

Lizzie wore a lovely white tulle wedding dress and Tom opted for a three piece Navy suit with a champagne tie. Groomsmen wore their own suits, which somehow just worked perfectly alongside Tom’s and added a splash of colour.

Swettenham Arms Wedding

The Swettenham Arms is a 16th Century Inn located in idyllic Congleton, Cheshire and boasts it’s own Lavender Field which is just stunning when it’s in bloom over the summer but also makes for a lovely backdrop for wedding photography all year round.

Lizzie & Tom had chosen just picked meadow flowers to fill the log centrepieces on each table, which looked beautiful for their Wedding Breakfast at the Swettenham Arms. They choose an animal theme inspired by one of their favourite holidays together on safari and even had an African themed wedding cake!

Guests arrived at the Swettenham Arm’s to be welcomed by reception drinks before heading into the function suite for the speeches and wedding breakfast. I had such a lovely day with Lizzie & Tom and their lovely families, here’s a few of my favourites along with their highlight slideshow.
