Debbie & Joe’s Normanton Church Wedding

Normanton Church Wedding Photographer

After what seemed like the longest winter ever, Spring 2015 got off to a wonderful start in April with Debbie and Joe’s wedding at Normanton Church and Barnsdale Hall in Rutland. Normanton Church is still my favourite venue for wedding ceremonies in Rutland and this year they’ve updated it with several new features including a cute little boat outside! Here are a few shots from their gorgeous wedding featuring the work of local suppliers including hair by Laura At Mojos Hair & Beauty, Anna at Moos Makeup, Country Kitchen Cakes and Helen Jane Floristry.

ABOUT NORMANTON CHURCH WEDDINGS

Normanton Church is definitely my favourite venue for wedding ceremonies in the Rutland area. It’s simply stunning and is one of the very few venues you can legally get married on water in the UK. It’s a little unusual when you enter as there isn’t a traditional aisle, depending on your seating plan. This means the bride can sometimes have the option to enter through the front door and walk the aisle towards the back, or to hide in the back of the church before the guests arrive to then use the traditional aisle at the front once they are seated. It sounds more confusing than it actually is but it’s worth bearing this is mind when you plan your ceremony. Normanton Church is every photographer’s dream in terms of location and lighting – lots of windows and bright decor offers up plenty of natural light during your ceremony. Afterwards you can get a really varied selection of photos just using the immediate areas around the church, or you can venture further afield if you’re up for it too! It’s also worth knowing that there’s nothing to worry about if the weather isn’t so wonderful outside too as you can always use the interior for some gorgeous group and couple photos if you want to. For such a small venue the options are remarkably endless.

It’s no secret that Normanton Church is one of my all-time favourite wedding venues. It truly is stunning and pretty unique as venues go in the UK, a de-consecrated church which seems to float majestically on Rutland Water. I was thrilled to go back there for Amy and Stewart’s wedding in May 2017 and it Read More
