I’m really excited to finally get round to sharing this wedding with you! Old Swan & Minster Mill is a beautiful venue, one that I hadn’t previously shot a wedding at and I was blown away by its beautiful grounds. This venue was made for outdoor ceremonies so the fact we had the most glorious of Summer’s last year was a blessing.

I initially met Laura & Mark in Starbucks in Swindon where we discussed plans for their small family wedding over coffee and cake, although come to think of it, I may have been the only one eating the cake! Closer to the day we met up again at the venue to walk the grounds and look for perfect photo opportunities so we were prepared and knew what we were doing on the day.

Laura & Mark chose to get married outside at the Old Swan & Minster Mill in Witney, surrounded by only a small number of family members & close friends. The weather was absolutely perfect as they said their vows next to the river under a big willow tree.

This was a very small wedding in quite a big venue so there were plenty of photo opportunities for Laura and Mark to take advantage of. Because the wedding was so intimate, with very few guests, they didn’t have a big evening reception so they didn’t need full use of what this venue has to offer but it really was a very beautiful day and I’m so happy they chose me to capture it.

I had another chance to work alongside Katy Pheiffer who did an amazing job on Laura’s makeup and also I met Katie Jane Whitlock for the first time who did Laura’s hair. Two very talented ladies!
