Getting married at Normanton Church

Normanton Church, set on the south shore of Rutland Water is a unique setting, perfect for intimate civil ceremonies.
Providing the entire wedding package, the church is surrounded by stunning views giving endless opportunities for beautiful photographs. 

Steeped in history, it retains a classic architectural elegance and, as one of Rutland's most iconic landmarks, it is the perfect venue for your special day. 

Normanton Church is a deconsecrated church which means that services are civil, not religious, so it offers all of the charm of a church wedding but without many of the features typically found in a parish church.

Hosting your reception

We understand how important your wedding day is, which is why we pull out all the stops to make it a memorable experience for all.

There is the option to position a marquee within the park to hold your wedding reception, which provides stunning views of Rutland Water. As the evening draws in, Normanton Church can be illuminated for you to truly impress your guests as they dance the night away alongside you. 

We have two approved event partners to deliver Wedding Receptions on site:

Rutland Marquees

Sami Tipi 

The companies above are our approved suppliers & have been authorised by us as they meet our health & safety requirements. As you might imagine, erecting a Marquee & delivering an event at Rutland Water requires good site knowledge & expertise so we are obliged to ensure that you & your guests are looked after in the best possible way. They both deliver a complete first class service & will be very happy to hear from you to discuss your ideas.
