Intimate Wedding at the Old Swan & Minster Mill

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.21.1″ header_3_text_color=”#bfba97″ module_class=”drop-caps” z_index_tablet=”500″]

Sara and Jon were one of my couples from 2017, but I adored their intimate wedding at The Old Swan and Minster Mill so much I think it’s one that will always stay in the gallery. Sara and Jon’s guests were just 10 people and a dog!

I first met Sara back in 2014 when I was sub contracting as a bookkeeper. When she called me and asked if I would shoot her wedding of course I said ‘yes’!

Even though I had known Sara for a while, I still treated her as my client. We had the meetings before hand and the venue visit. Sara had said to me that she was worried that venue might not nice for photos, she hadn’t ever planned a wedding before and had no clue as to what to expect. As I drove into the little Oxford village of Minster Lovell, I felt a weird sense of calm and I was completely overwhelmed by how beautiful it was. It was like I had stepped into The Shire from Lord of The Rings.

 

A gorgeous venue in ‘The Shire’

 

The Old Swan and Minster Mill is set on the River Windrush just a stones throw away from the beautiful Blenheim Palace. I can honestly say it is one of the most stunning venues I have photographed. I quickly put Sara’s worries at ease, as we walked through the venue on the river banks I showed her all the gorgeous little places that we could go for photos. So many pretty little winding paths, sketched out by gravel and decorated with the victorian style lamp posts. As you go further down the river, a lovely private spot outside disused boat house. The rowing boat and it’s oars sat wearily on the side, this is where I got my award winning image of Sara and Jon sat on the edge of the pier.

On the morning of the wedding it was forecast to rain. Not just rain, but pour down. There were doubts as to whether the outdoor ceremony would be able to happen or not. But, luckily the sun shone all day for my gorgeous couple. They even managed to entertain the guests with a duck race down the river! Before the wedding breakfast, Sara and Jon gave me a good hour of their time for couples photos, and I am so glad they did. I had the most amazing time and I know they did too.

If you are looking for an intimate wedding venue I would highly recommend The Old Swan and Minster Mill.
