Swancar Farm Country House

It’s always my joy and pleasure to travel round the country to document fabulous weddings. Deborah and David had booked Swancar Farm Country House near Nottingham in order to have a lovely spring wedding in a secluded and open setting but guess what? When their day came around in late March there was heavy snow and gale force winds, forcing a few minor changes.

One of the things I find through experience is that the more pragmatic the bride and groom are to things they can’t control, such as the weather; the more they enjoy the day. If your enjoyment of your wedding hinges on every detail, especially the weather, being absolutely perfect, something may go awry. My advice is always to at least think about, if not plan a contingency, some aspect of the weather turning out to be any less than perfect. I always plan for alternative locations for photography and I’ve known some brides make fun features out of white umbrellas or even white wellington boots. At least if it’s given some consideration, it’s won’t be a surprise on the day, and hopefully it just becomes a feature, rather than a problem. Worry and the things you can control, not the things you can’t.

I’d planned for the worst and travelled in good time and Swancar is such a well prepared venue with totally unflappable staff, that the snow and high winds just became a talking point and it didn’t phase Deborah or David one bit.

So this spring wedding became a beautiful winter wedding and here is a small collection of images from the day.

Deborah was kind enough to write a short testimonial on my Facebook page which can be seen here
