Swancar Farm

Thank you for visiting my website. This page is dedicated to one of the best known wedding venues in Nottinghamshire and my goal is to tell you a little bit about this place as well as show you some of my favourite Swancar Farm wedding photographs.

About Swancar Farm

Swancar Farm is one of Nottingham's most popular and prestigious wedding venues. If you have been a wedding photographer in Nottingham for any length of time then chances are you will have been a Swancar Farm wedding photographer too! The classy modern look will impress your family and friends, as well as provide the perfect backdrop for your dream day. No wonder why each year, hundreds of couples tie the knot at this luxurious barn venue.

If you are thinking about having your wedding filmed too then you can watch one of our cinematic wedding videos below too! We are one of the few companies in Nottinghamshire who can provide a husband and wife team who can deliver natural looking wedding photographs and videos that will leave you speechless.

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.

Swancar Farm Accommodation

There are 11 double bedrooms available in the main house for your guests to stay after a hard night of partying. You also have the opportunity to spend the night before your wedding in their self catering cottage. A very popular option for the bride and her entourage.

It means you can wake up and lose no time travelling. Spend more time with your friends, family and the all important getting ready!

Swancar Farm is also conveniently situated to several local hotels. The Nottingham Belfry is less than three miles away. The Doubletree Hilton is just under five miles away and less than a 10 minute drive.

Getting Married at Swancar Farm

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 floor of the barn has always been the go to place for wedding ceremonies at Swancar.  Licensed to hold up to 100 people. Imagine walking down the gorgeous aisle to your waiting groom surrounded by your closest family and friends! As you can see from the above photo, it is such a romantic place to get married.

The Glass Barn

New for 2020, the latest addition to Swancar is absolutely stunning. The glass barn is modern, light and airy. Every detail has been thought of. It is my new favourite room. I love the way it has transformed the downstairs bar area.  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.

Of course, the impressive Oak room is perfect for both your wedding breakfast and the partying later in the day! Just look at the magnificant backdrop for your speeches!

Here is a wedding photograph from Leanne & Rachel's wedding. Father of bride nervously giving his speech whilst mum is in the background wiping away a tear. (He probably didn't read my tips on how to give a wedding speech) lol

Later in the evening, the team at Swancar transform the Oak room into a stunning room for your evening reception.  Imagine you and your friends all partying here. After your first dance song of course!

And what about a dance with the father of the bride? One day I hope I will be able to do this with my own daughter. Hopefully at a venue as gorgeous as Swancar Farm too. I would cherish such a photo forever.
