Zoe & Chris’s wedding at Normanton Church & The Finch’s Arms in Rutland

I was so pleased when Zoe and Chris booked me for their Rutland wedding adventure. Their love for the great outdoors and regular cycling trips around Rutland water made Normanton Church the perfect wedding venue.

The couple live in Nottingham, Chris is a product specialist in broadcasting and Zoe is the director of a film company called Zeddy Productions.

The Splendour of Normanton Church

Normanton Church is perched on the very edge of Rutland Water which provides a gorgeous scenic backdrop for the ceremony. Zoe arrived a little late in her dad’s bright red camper van which was in contrast to the brilliant blue sky with rolling white clouds and from then on the ceromony went without a glitch as you will see in the photos.

After the ceremony Chris and Zoe treated their guests to a short ferry ride around the water on the Rutland Belle, where they had champagne and horderves.

The Finch’s Arms Wedding Reception

The Finch’s Arms in Hambleton, Rutland was where they celebrated the rest of their Rutland summer wedding with a delicious wedding breakfast, hilarious speeches and a live band for their first dance.

Zoe’s  most memorable moment of the day “Making eye contact with Chris for the first time in the church and pulling a big shocked, “We’re doing it!” face at him! (captured brilliantly by Geoff!) My Mum’s reading and poem, my two best guy mates doing their reading, the boat trip with everyone, doing our first dance to Everywhere by Fleetwood Mac, which means a lot!”

This wedding has also been featured in Rutland Pride Magazine as a featured wedding, Scroll along to page 122 to see the artical and read more about the couple.

If you have booked Normanton Church as your wedding venue and you havn’t yet booked a wedding photographer then get in touch, I’d love to chat about your day over a drink and share more of my Rutland and other weddings with you.
