Couple’s heartwarming wedding tale is subject of Channel 4 documentary
The documentary, called ‘The Wedding Day’, will air the day before Valentine’s Day
‘The Wedding Day’ documentary will be shown on Channel 4 on Monday, February 13, from 10-11pm.
The heartwarming story of a woman who took on a picturesque wedding venue her parents had run, and later married her husband there, will be the subject of a new television documentary.
Serena Jordan (previously Saunders) took over the Sheene Mill, a stunning 17th century mill in Melbourn, four years ago after her parents divorced in 2006 and the mill ended up in administration.
The 28-year-old, who said she was “pretty much raised waiting tables”, said the decision to take on the venue was easy as the building is close to her heart.
The tale of the venue take-over, and the wedding, will now be the subject of a Channel 4 documentary, called ‘The Wedding Day’, which will air the day before Valentine’s Day.
Serena told the News : “Being a building close to my heart, my partner Adam Jordan and I decided to take on the Sheene Mill ourselves.
“Four years later and it seems things are going from strength to strength once again. We also finally decided to get married in our own venue last August.
“We had a two week honeymoon in Singapore and the Maldives – paid for entirely from very generous wedding gifts.
“Channel 4 were extremely interested in the story and have consequently created a documentary, set at the Sheene Mill, focusing on the build up to and the day of our wedding.
Mrs Jordan said she was ‘over the moon’ when approached by Channel 4 about the documentary, and was really pleased with the overall result after being given a sneak preview showing of the programme.
She added: “It was pretty intense, the Renegade Productions filming team followed us for the best part of a year.
“The documentary ended up being really funny – it showed a bit about each of our families as well as the wedding itself and our decision to take the Sheene Mill on.
“I worked at the Sheene Mill from the age of 11; it has been the home to so many of my happy memories, from my childhood swims in the river, to the recent years.”
