Maria and Ashley’s wedding at Rutland Water was a joy to photograph. Maria and Ashley are far from conventional, and decided to just do things their way. They got married at Normanton Church, a stunning and curious landmark on the Rutland water, the history of which is fascinating. Built around 1250 AD and renovated several times over the years, part of the church is sunken into the ground and yet it still stands proudly on the edge of the reservoir. After the ceremony guests made their way via boat to Ernest point, where tipis awaited them for drinks reception overlooking the water. It was such a beautiful sunny day, and so much fun. Delicious catering was provided by Stones Events, really yummy! Maria and Ashley are a cool fun loving couple, and even up for getting in the water for some shots. They brought their own white wellies especially for some photos and I just loved getting in the water to photograph them! Thanks to Photography by Clare for second shooting.
