about swancar farm

Set within 250 acres of land, Swancar Farm is an exclusive use venue that boasts stunning countryside views. It's so pretty here and as a result, there's no shortage of opportunities for stunning wedding photographs.

Located in Trowell, it is within easy reach from the centre of Nottingham and Derby and well served by local motorways.

The venue is licensed for wedding ceremonies of up to 100 seated guests in the upper barn or lower barn. The gorgeous brand new glass barn has a maximum capacity of 80 seated guests. The maximum capacity including evening guests is up to 300 people.

Whilst pets are not allowed inside the venue, it is possible to bring them along and take photos with them outside.

Walking around the grounds, you will soon see why Swancar Farm is such a popular venue. There are so many places to take photos.

If you are getting married at Swancar Farm then you are in for a treat! There are now two rooms which are licensed for civil ceremonies. A choice of two stunning rooms for you to exchange vows in.

the upper barn

The Upper Barn is a light and airy space with high ceilings, exposed beams and plenty of charm. It has been sympathetically converted from an old straw barn and can accommodate up to 100 seated guests.

Imagine walking down the gorgeous aisle to your waiting groom surrounded by your closest family and friends! how exciting would that be? As you can see from the above photo, it is such a romantic place to get married.

the glass barn

The glass barn is most often used during your drinks reception but is also licensed for civil ceremonies. With space for up to 80 seated guests, it's a great option if you are looking for something a little more intimate or if some of your guests have mobility issues. The glass barn has quickly become a firm favourite with couples getting married at Swancar Farm.

Not only does the glass barn look fantastic in photos, but it is also flooded with natural light making it the perfect place to exchange your vows.

After your ceremony, the staff can quickly turn this room into an extension of the bar so your guests can relax. It is also ideal for the photograph of everyone if the weather is not great outside. And the balcony from the upper barn affords some unique photo opportunities that I am looking forward to creating!

The space also makes for a great backdrop for a stunning portrait, no matter the weather. As you can see from this photograph taken at Nicola & Steve's wedding. Even when it is really sunny outside, this space is still simply epic!

my favourite places for swancar farm wedding photos

My favourite places to take portraits of the bride and groom are:

The path leading up to Swancar Farm is one of those must have photos. With sweeping views of the Nottinghamshire countryside it's easy to see why practically every Nottingham wedding photographer uses it as one of their first locations.

The next is the Pagoda. Especially in the evening where I can lower the ambient light and create beautiful photos with dramatic skies.

Lastly a hidden gem. If you walk a bit further up to the field, as the last few photos of the day, you can capture some absolutely exquisite sunset photographs.
