As a Rutland wedding photographer I’m incredibly lucky to visit a place full of gorgeous little villages and rolling hills for my job. As I recently relocated to the area I thought I’d share some of my favourite Rutland weddings to celebrate the beauty of the UK’s smallest county. If you’re getting married in Oakham, Uppingham or Stamford and are looking for a Rutland Wedding Photographer please do get in touch to check availability, I’d love to hear about your plans.
Charli and Will’s Wedding in Barrowden
Charli and Will’s wedding took place in the village of Barrowden. The style of the day was themed around countryside pursuits with a particular focus on artisan food and drink. Check out their wedding in full here if you’d like to see more.
Kelly & Ferg’s Farm Festival Wedding
Kelly & Ferg’s wedding was utterly unique! With a full on funfair and special guest appearance from Kelly’s horse, this is one is a must see. Check out their photos here.
Normanton Church Weddings
One of my favourite Rutland wedding venues is Normanton Church. It is pretty much the most stunning setting for a wedding ceremony you can get, a de-consecrated church which appears to be floating on Rutland Water! Find out why I love weddings at Normanton Church Rutland here.
Kay and Gareth’s Uppingham Wedding
Kay and Gareth’s wedding was super vintage and incredibly stylish. They got married in the chapel at Uppingham School in April 2015. Uppingham is a really great spot for pre-wedding shoots and also boasts the Falcon Hotel, another super Rutland wedding venue. See more of Kay and Gareth’s day on the blog.
Laura and Mitch’s Normanton Church Wedding
Normanton Church looks heavenly at sunset, and at Laura and Mitch’s wedding in September 2015 I was able to capture this for the first time. These two got married in the church and held their reception at the neighbouring Normanton Park Hotel. This was my first time at the hotel and Laura and Mitch’s wedding really made it a visit to remember. See more of their photos here.
Jodie and Kieran’s Barnsdale Gardens Wedding
In June 2015 I photographed my first wedding at Barnsdale Gardens. This really is a very special venue, only holding a handful of weddings a year. Jodie and Kieran’s wedding was picture-perfect, we had glorious sunshine and flowers everywhere in full bloom. Have a browse through their photos on the blog.
Kelly and Chris’ Broccoli Bottom Wedding
Kelly and Chris’ wedding took place at Normanton Church and was followed by a summertime celebration at nearby Broccoli Bottom B&B in Manton. This was the first wedding held at Broccoli Bottom and was filled with lots of beautiful creative detail. See more of their images here.
Michelle and Ben’s Ladywood Estate Wedding
Michelle and Ben’s wedding took me to Normanton Church and Ladywood Estate for the first time in December 2013. I wasn’t sure how Normanton would look in the winter but we were blessed with warm sunshine. Check out some of their photos from these two lovely Rutland wedding venues here.

We spent about an hour chatting through wedding ideas in the garden, sunglasses on, drinking cups of tea in the sunshine. I remember thinking that we’d be very lucky to be spend this much time outside at the end of October, ...Read More
