Laura & Tom

Wedding photographer Lincoln, grantham, sleaford, Lincolnshire, toft hotel wedding

Laura & Tom were married on 13th September 2015 at Normanton church on Rutland Water, the Reception was held at The Toft Country Hotel.  Both venues are great settings for a wedding and the couple picked the perfect day for their special occasion; warm, sunny with their wonderful family and friends to support them, we also had a flypast by the Vulcan Bomber!!

Normanton Church is quite a special place;  It is Rutland’s most famous landmark and was saved from flooding when Rutland Water was created in the 1970s. When Rutland Water was created there were plans to demolish the church but due to public outcry it remains today and now with the floor raised almost half way up the church, it is a fascinating building with a unique history.

The Toft Country Hotel is set in idilic grounds and is perfect for wedding receptions, the staff are very friendly and the food was great (the groom is the head chef!!)  Anyway, here are a few images from the day……………

We even had a flypast from the Vulcan Bomber, it happened so quick I really didn’t have time to compose the image, but it was a special moment…

And its off to the Reception at the Toft Country Hotel.  Unfortunately, confetti is not allowed at the Normanton Church, so we did the confetti run as Laura and Tom arrived at the Reception.
