Rutland Water Golf course & Normanton Church Wedding photography – Camille & Adrian

Leave a Comment

Meeting Camille and Adrian at their engagement was a real pleasure, they were such a kind hearted and loving couple and they really took to the camera, making my life very easy with their natural approach.

I remember this wedding day with great fondness, from start to finish it was a real pleasure to be a part of. Families from two nations combining to create a beautiful atmosphere full of love, laughter and humility

I arrived at Rutland water golf course bright and early to find Camille with rollers in her hair, a cup of tea in her hand and a face beaming with excitement.

Whilst the girls were undergoing their morning prep I made sure I captured all the priceless details, I needed to do justice to the amount of thought and effort that had gone into her planning.

The morning was racing by so fast; as the saying goes, time flies when you’re having fun. The cottage on the grounds of Rutland golf course has some beautiful rooms for bridal prep, they have lovely décor and great window light, perfect for us photographers. I entered the room to find Camille glowing with excitement, she looked stunning in her wedding gown. Shortly after he grand reveal to the family, the emotions spilled over, I really enjoy seeing the parents’ reaction, so priceless.

Normanton Church beckoned. Adrian looked the part in his chequered navy suit and burgundy bow tie. I loved the look; it really fitted in with the setting of the Rutland shore.

As more often than not, the wind was whipping around the church creating some photo worthy expressions from guest and all. The time had come to walk down the aisle to come face to face with her husband. Normanton Church ceremonies are always heartfelt and sincere; the registrars do a remarkable job of adding a personal touch to each service.

With the formalities over, the bride and groom could let their hair down and enjoy their day. We spent some time around the grounds of Normanton Church to take advantage of the gorgeous scenery and blue skies before heading back to Rutland water golf course for the reception.

A large line of guest with handfuls of confetti greeted them as they made their way into the grounds. Welcome drinks and canapés fuelled the candid moments. A particular highlight for me was the English and French kids running around playing together carrying their own flags of nationality, proudly waving them around in the air.

Once the meal and speeches where over I took the opportunity to take them off to embrace the rolling Rutland landscape, it offers some breath-taking backdrops for beautiful photographs. We were blessed with great light and everything just came together for them both. It was a real treat being able to spend some quality time soaking up the scenery, some welcome time alone for them to reflect on a wonderful day.

The fun didn’t stop there, back to the dance floor for a heartfelt first dance and some awesome dance moves.

I couldn’t resist taking them out once more to capture the setting sun over the horizon, a perfect end to a perfect day.

Normanton Church wedding photography – Sacha & Mark

It was nice early start on a perfect summers morning. I’d been looking forward to photographing Sacha and Marks wedding at Normanton buy std antibiotics church for some time. They’re a lovely couple to work with as I found out from their engagement shoot earlier in the year.

Sacha had a house full over at her mums and there was a real air of excitement, everyone had a spring in their step.

All the final touches had been applied and Sacha looked stunning, her dress suited her perfectly. After a few photos in the garden it was time to make our way to Normanton Church. Although we had a slight problem, one of the wedding cars had broken down, so a quick fix was to squeeze 3 bridesmaids into my car amidst the car gear, it made for an amusing journey…..

Traditionally late, the bride arrived at a blustery but gorgeous Normanton church. With her veil swaying in the wind and a beaming smile on her face she made her way to the church entrance.

Once the all clear had been given the groom and guest could make their way from the car park to the church. Mark, in eager anticipation seemed slightly nervous, as expected, and once inside his facial expression emphasised just that. Sacha made her grand entrance; it was lovely to see such emotion between them as they exchanged vowels.

After the service the bridal party stayed back whilst the rest of the guest headed to the Haycock Hotel. We spent 20 minutes at Normanton church capturing some iconic photography in this perfect Rutland setting.

Back at the Haycock everyone enjoyed the beautifully kept gardens and a welcome drink or two, whilst the summer sun beamed down and some lovely music in the background played. I managed to capture all the family images required in good time so this meant the bride and groom had some quality time to themselves.

The wedding breakfast and speeches went down extremely well and it seemed everyone was enjoying the atmosphere. Just before the first dance we took a short drive to some newly harvest fields. The sun was low in the sky and the fields where a golden colour in the evening light, a perfectly romantic way to see the last moments of daylight in.

It was then back to the Haycock to spend the rest of the night dancing and socialising to the early hours.

Fantastic wedding day
