Vicky and Danny’s Wedding – Complete with The Rutland Belle

August 12, 2015 |


The sun was rising and we were off on our journey for Vicky and Danny’s wedding. We didn’t have to go far as they had chosen to get married in Normanton Church with a reception at Normanton Park Hotel.



We arrived bright and early to meet Vicky and her girls as they were pampered by the girls at Pure Beauty. Excitement, giggles, and Jaeger bombs is how the day started and from this moment on we KNEW it was going to be a day full of awesomeness!

After capturing some photographs in the bridal suite at Normanton Park, we moved onto the bar to meet Danny and his groomsmen. They were ordering their first drink (at 9.30 in the morning) along with each being given a hip flask full of whiskey! They all looked fab in their kilts and we captured some relaxed photographs as they began to take a short walk down to Normanton Church.

The weather was incredible and Vicky had decided to take the short walk with her bridesmaids from the hotel to Normanton Church, we met her half way and she was very excited! She looked stunning and couldn’t wait to get into the church!

After their beautiful ceremony, complete with 3 readings, it was time to head out into the glorious sunshine. Vicky and Danny had planned a real treat for all of their guests…a round trip on the Rutland Belle. A grand tour of Rutland Water along with drinks and nibbles in the beautiful sunshine- with this in  mind we had a few moments before  they all started to board the boat. We captured a large group photograph of all the guests along with a few wedding photographs at Normanton Church with the bride and groom.

The boat trip was fab and the bride and groom made it round to speak to all of their guests too.  The bride had planned a surprise for Danny… a Scottish Piper to bring them to shore and lead them back to Normanton Park Hotel.

They arrive back at Normanton Park and instantly greeted by a jar of Pimms! We had awesome fun doing the group photographs on their list, there was lots of cheering, jumping and flashing…. Yes, you heard us right!

Normanton Park welcomed them into their wedding breakfast room for speeches and their meal. Their wedding breakfast and speeches were introduced with Daniel opening a bottle of champagne with a sword- it was spectacular, such a treat!

We also had time to sneak out after their meal to take some photographs with just the two of them. We used the beautiful trees at Normanton Park along with the sun shimmering off the water to capture some wedding photographs at Normanton Park Hotel.

Danny finished with a little surprise for his new wife… He was singing a song with the band! Wow! He was awesome and such a lovely idea.

Congratulations guys- we had a gorgeous day with you all.

We would LOVE to hear more about your wedding day...
