It was great to do another Normanton Church Wedding, a stunning waterside venue on the edge of Rutland Water. Dan & Gemma’s wedding day was bright and breezy, with big blue skies reflected in the wide-reaching waters.


I started my photography coverage with the build up to the ceremony. Loved the view of Dan walking towards Normanton Church, alongside his father and best man.

The interior of the church is nice and light, with the windows facing out to the Resi. It was atmospheric touch, to have the candles around the sides of the superb interior.

With all guests inside, Gemma was driven by her father, right up to the side of the church. So just a few paces to the church door, pausing for some quick photos on the way. She looked v pretty with her band of flowers and full-length hair.

It was a lovely ceremony, with readings by Dan’s father and a family friend. With glorious sunshine, we did some couple shots outside the church and a big group photo.

Their reception was held at the nearby Normanton Park Hotel, just a few minutes’ walk away. Drinks and confetti outside, with time for some more shots of our lovely couple, before the meal.
Timing was perfect, so everyone was inside enjoying the food, speeches and celebrations, while some rain showers blew in outside.

It did clear away for some more photos and I did like the shot of them cuddling, with the dipping sunlight coming through the trees. The party continued with our couple cutting their Doctor Who cake and a slow first dance.

A lovely relaxed Normanton Church Wedding day and thanks guys for having me along !
