Incredible experience, reliable team

We just hosted our wedding there over the May long weekend, and I really can't say enough great things about them. Our whole experience with them through this last year has been unparalleled and I've been part of several weddings at different venues these past years and Swaneset just really delivers everything you need.

We had the pleasure of working with Holly and Michelle was our point person for the day off. Really professional team and the staff hosting on the day of we're absolutely lovely as well.

The venue really speaks for itself but it is really important to note that they do spend quite a bit of time on the upkeep of the space. We held our ceremony on the grear lawn and the green was kept spectacularly. I also had so many guests that day and also the week following compliment on the quality of the food and abundance as well.

If you're thinking of Swaneset as your venue, don't hesitate! They really know how to bring it!

A Stunning Venue With The BEST Wedding Coordinator

We hosted our wedding and reception at Swaneset this past summer. As part of the package, you are provided a day of coordinator. We worked with Melissa who was absolutely fabulous. She listened to our ideas, provided vendor recommendations when asked, had several planning meetings with us, and was there to execute our vision just as we'd discussed. She handled all the day-of hiccups which really helped us out from a stress level. Holly was also awesome during the pre-sales process. Our guests (and we!) felt it was a fairytale venue. We hosted 200 guests, but the space holds up to 350. Would definitely recommend Swaneset!

A DREAM wedding

I got married here in august and it was such an amazing experience!! The venue is HUGE and very beautiful. The outside stairs and patio make it look like a castle. So many beautiful spots for photos here. Our event manager was Melissa and she was absolutely wonderful! She answered all my questions promptly leading up to the wedding and was extremely helpful all around. On the wedding day she was so great with the schedule and making sure everything was up to my standards! Couldn鈥檛 recommend this venue enough. Every guest was wowed. 10/10

Top notch 馃憣

Swaneset was the perfect venue for our fairy tale wedding come true! Our coordinator, Michelle, was very attentive and looked after all of our needs, making the planning process and the wedding day go smoothly and stress free. The food was incredible, we had multiple guests that are vegan and also gluten sensitive, there was a ton of options for them in the buffet menu we choose (refined rustic) we couldn't have been happier with the food!

I highly recommend Swaneset for your dream wedding!

Good food, big venue, great service

Great venue, very accommodating, food was great. The venue is very grand but will require a lot of decoration to bring the best out of the venue.

A dream come true

We would like to thank Danielle M and the staff at Swaneset for having our dream wedding day. My guests were so impressed by the staff and food that I am still getting compliments to this day. Danielle made everything so easy for us and we loved all her suggestions. She is very calm and collected which made our wedding day run so smoothly. I honestly can't thank her enough. She was instrumental in having our dream wedding day and she deserves all the stars in the world. The venue is beautiful and we are so happy that we picked this venue to get married. I would recommend it to anyone. You are amazing at what you do and we can't thank you enough.

Love Neelam and Mitchell

Beautiful Venue & Great Staff

Swaneset was our very first (and only) wedding venue we took a look at. We knew we had to book them right after as it was the perfect space for our wedding vision! We were first in contact with Holly R when we were inquiring about the venue and she was so helpful and responsive. A couple months before the wedding, we were introduced to Swaneset's venue and event coordinator/manager for our wedding which was Michelle V. We had a phone meeting and lots of email exchanges. We only met Michelle on our wedding day. She was professional and flexible to any changes we had last minute. She was also super responsive to any questions we had even up to the week of the wedding. The rest of the Swaneset staff were so kind and attentive to us and our guests. Our guests enjoyed the amazing food, drinks, and overall service of the Swaneset team. The venue is so beautiful and romantic. We are so happy we chose Swaneset!

Hi! My name is Danielle. I started with Swaneset at the beginning of 2016 as a Wedding and Events Coordinator. I studied Event Management and graduated with my Diploma in 2014. I have always had a passion for weddings and Swaneset is an outstanding place for me to put my skills to work. My detail oriented and calm personality is a great suit for the job. A month or so before your event we will get together to organize everything to create a perfect day.

Event Manager

Hello! My name is Michelle, I鈥檝e always had a passion for creating unique and beautiful experiences. This passion led me to graduating from BCIT in 2013 with an Associate Certificate in Marketing Management with a focus on Event Marketing and Event Planning. Implementing my education through four years of practical experience as an event bar manager and later a position as a special events assistant coordinator at a popular berry farm and estate winery. Armed with a competitive education, a wide variety of experiences, and a naturally detail-oriented mindset, I joined the event coordination team at Swan-E-Set Bay Resort and Country Club in January of 2018. As a professional wedding specialist, I believe the key to creating a one-of-a-kind lifetime event is through the support I give to clients from the beginning to the end of an event. Keeping in mind their vision of their special day, but providing them with the tools and inspiration to do so. From the initial meeting, menu planning, to the rehearsal and the day of your special occasion, I hope to create your dream come true.

For most of my adolescent life I trained as a competitive dancer, I now try to keep up some training when I鈥檓 not taking care of my two Cavalier King Charles dogs, Tennessee & Whiskey.
