Helen and Dan’s super wedding celebration in Rutland

May 27, 2015 |


The start of a super day began at the bride’s parent’s house near Grantham. There were very excited voices and giggles for most of the morning whilst we photographed Helen’s dress and shoes along with photographs of them all being pampered! It was then time for us to head off and meet the boys!

Helen and Dan had chosen the later ceremony time of 4.30pm for their wedding at Normanton Church. The boys arrived in the smart grey suits and shades looking very cool and calm whilst a coach load of guests arrived shortly followed by the bride.

She looked AMAZING! Dan was not going to believe his luck when she walks down the aisle! Helen and Dan said their vows, led by the super team of Oakham Registrars and before we knew it they were husband and wife!

The sun was shining, although it was a little windy, the weather was perfect for some group photographs, along with bubbles, at Normanton Church. Guest’s made their way back on the coach whilst we stayed with Helen and Dan. Photographing weddings at Normanton Church is always a pleasure- with endless options; we could spend all day here! Helen and Dan looked gorgeous together as we captured some relaxed and natural photographs of them together at Normanton Church.

After a quick glass of bubbly (for them, not us!) it was off to Barnsdale Lodge we go for a super wedding reception!

Guests had gathered in the beautiful courtyard at Barnsdale Lodge and this made a perfect backdrop for us to capture those informal photographs of everyone enjoying themselves.

The BBQ was on and it was speech time! 4 very well-rehearsed and delivered speeches followed along with an entertaining slideshow from Helen’s dad, the Bafta award-winning editor! It was great and really made everyone giggle!

Helen and Dan lead the first of the dancing with ‘It must be Love’ by Madness (we LOVE that song!) and they had picked a special second song for Helen’s Parents who were celebrating their wedding anniversary- very cute!

Thanks for a super duper day guys and congratulations!
