Spring was finally here and the sun even made an appearance for Angela and Alan’s wedding day…Yay!
They had planned a fabulous day for their friends and family…. A boat cruise to Normanton Church for their ceremony, followed by drinks on The Rutland Belle, Afternoon Tea at The Harbour Restaurant on the shores of Rutland Water and a DJ to help dance the night away… Wow!
We arrived at Barnsdale Hall Hotel to find the bride having her hair and make-up sorted and she was very excited and nervous all at the same time! Photographs of the girls, dresses, shoes and details followed before we left them to it and found the groom and his family downstairs watching the snooker! Very chilled!
Alan and his sons looked FAB all suited and booted and after a few snaps we carried on with the next part of the day to capture the bride arriving at Normanton Church before whizzing (carefully) to Whitwell to catch the boat! Phew- we made it and found all the guests on board very excited for their short cruise!
Normanton Church is a beautiful setting for your wedding day, and today was no exception! By arriving by boat, it almost feels like you’re approaching a secret church on an isolated island- how romantic!
A beautiful bride walked down the beautiful aisle and wowed all of the guests before their wonderful ceremony which was led by the fantastic registrars.
Guest congratulated the happy couple with a bubble lined pathway which worked perfectly! We took some relaxed group photographs and made our way to The Rutland Belle for a cruise back to Whitwell.
This lovely couple had really added all of the personal touches to the Harbour Restaurant for their reception, with drapes, a hand-made photo booth, wooden signs and lots of games- it looked amazing! They sat down for afternoon tea and speeches whilst overlooking the most beautiful view of the water.
After some photographs in the sun, cricket and croquet it was time for the bride and groom to head onto the dancefloor and begin the evening fun with their first dance!
Congratulations guys and thanks for letting us be a part of your beautiful spring wedding day!
