Bassmead Manor Barns | Wedding Photography


There are many wedding venues that I enjoy shooting at. However its the element of surprise which always excites me when I’m about to photograph wedding at Bassmead Manor Barns. Couples just seem to embrace the place as their own for the time they are there, whats more they are encouraged to do so.  Underneath it all though this place just has the recipe right, fabulous ceremony barn – tick, private bridal suite – tick, on-site accommodation, views, great food….  well you get the gist. The list goes on but whats it actually like to get married at Bassmead, well I can’t talk first direct experience but I can come close. Relaxed, organised and fun. 3 words that encapsulate every wedding I have photographed here.

Greetham Valley Wedding Photography


Greetham valley golf club weddings – A great wedding photography venue in Rutland situated close to Rutland Water itself. The hotel and golf complex provides a fantastic setting with lovely views over the undulating golf course. Friendly staff ensure that the wedding day and reception run smoothly, and are on hand to drive the bride and groom out on to the golf course for photographs in one of their golf buggies. Outside the hotel has modern raised veranda straight off the large and well lit wedding reception room. The lawn area and golf tee areas provide further  outdoor space for wedding guests to gather and wander.

Rutland water weddings at Normanton church are great accompaniment. Greetham Valley Hotel is only 15-20 minutes away from the waters edge wedding venue and provides the perfect opportunity to hire in an alternative travel such as a vintage routemaster bus to ferry wedding party and guests between to and from the wedding reception venue.

Normanton Church Rutland Water wedding photography


Normanton Church stands on a peninsula found on the southern shore on Rutland Water. Peter Redhead wedding photography works throughout Rutland. Over recent years I’ve been fortunate to have photographed a number of weddings at Normanton Church and have also used this iconic landmark as the location for bride and groom photo sessions.

One more surprise in store

Besides standing out into the water the Church itself has one more surprise in store, due to its construction there is one entrance and the to hold the wedding ceremony at either the North or South facing ends. Whilst there is no right or wrong way, many brides prefer to be married at the domed Southern end of the church. In turn this has serious implications to the planning, preparation on wedding day and arrival; as the bride must wait out of sight inside Normanton Churches hidden room. Groom and wedding guests must then arrive afterwards and be seated before the bride can then make her way down the aisle.

Normanton Church is a perfect wedding ceremony venue in Rutland because of its close proximity to some of Rutland’s premier wedding venues such as Normaton Park Hotel, Barnsdale Hall Hotel, Greetham Valley and Barnsdale Lodge.

The church was re-sited when the village of Normanton was flooded to make way what is now Rutland Water. As far as civil ceremony wedding venues go this has to be one of the more aesthetically pleasing, no matter what time of year the reservoir and surrounding Rutland landscape ensure a wonderful backdrop and setting are always on hand to accompany the wedding day.

The Haycock Hotel Wansford


The Haycock Hotel Wansford: I’ve known the Haycock Hotel for many years and have photographed a number of weddings there. Situated near to Peterborough and Oundle it is a popular choice for wedding couples from the Peterborough and surrounding area. The Haycock hotel is a fantastic 16th century venue on the banks of the river nene which was once served as a coach house. The Hotel has the flexibility to cater for many different wedding styles and sizes. On warmer days the gardens of the Haycock are a great place for wedding guests to wander and chat outside during the drinks reception. The Haycock’s courtyard, formal herb gardens and bridge over the river nene all serve as a wonderful back drop to wedding day photographs and are the perfect place for any bride and groom to escape their wedding party for a short while.

If you are considering getting married at the Haycock Hotel Wansford, and would like  an informal documentary wedding photographer, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Branston Hall Hotel Wedding Photographer


I have been commissioned by a number clients as their wedding photographer at Branston Hall over the past couple of years. My documentary approach to photography is usually the key reason behind their decision to commission me as their wedding photographer. Branston Hall Hotel is ideally suited to my reportage photography style and because of its fantastic large rooms and sprawling outdoor space means there is never a shortage of opportunities for storytelling photographs.

Branston Hall Hotel is a first rate wedding venue in Lincolnshire. The hall which dates from the late 19th century has many rooms licensed for civil wedding ceremonies, in addition it is one the few hotels in Lincolnshire where an outdoor wedding ceremony can be held. See an example from 2012 here.

Inside; the hotel has retained much of its original character with oak panelling, leather chairs  and  large staircase. Outside; the expansive grass area extends down into the meadow area surrounding the lake. The terrace area provides the perfect place for guests and family to mingle and chat over a canapés and champagne reception.

If you would like a professional informal documentary style wedding photographer, or are considering getting married at the Branston Hall Hotel Lincoln please don’t hesitate to contact me.
