Congratulations to Roz and Dan who were married yesterday at Normanton Church followed by a reception at Halstead House in Tilton.


The sun shone down and just for once there was no wind blowing across the water!


A beautiful bride


Photographed in an elegant style that looks misleadingly simple to create



December 27th saw a wedding at Oakham Castle followed by Normanton Park Hotel on the shores of Rutland Water.

Gemma and Richard were blessed with both fine weather and also snow left on the ground from a few days earlier.

As we set off for the photoshoot some visitors passed by complete with sledge – and we all thought the same thing!  The shot below has been accepted by a publication and we hope to see it in print soon headed “get me to the church on time”
Thank goodness for all those years spent working for newspapers armed with one camera, one lens and one flashgun expected to get great results regardless of the weather or the lighting.  Now that’s experience and knowledge you can’t just buy. 

Torrential rain didn’t dampen the spirits at yesterday’s wedding at Stamford and Normanton Park Hotel on the south shore of Rutland Water.
I was delighted to photograph the wedding of Nichola and David who braved the elements to walk down to the church at Normanton and were rewarded with a break in the clouds and a great sunset.
My best wishes to the guest who was interested in taking up wedding photography professionally – this one showed how important it is to be totally confident regardless of whatever is thrown at you on the day!

We couldn’t all walk down in the rain so we used the setting inside the Hall as well
A practice walk while we got up the courage to go right to the church!
well worth the walk – well done David and Nichola
