Getting Married at Normanton Church, Rutland Water

Normanton Church, set on the south shore of Rutland Water is a unique setting, perfect for intimate civil ceremonies.

The church is blessed with stunning views giving endless opportunities for beautiful photographs. Steeped in history, it retains a timeless architectural elegance and is a perfect location for your special day at Rutland’s most iconic landmark. Normanton Church is a deconsecrated building which means that services are civil, not religious, so offers all of the charm of a church wedding but without many of the features typically found in a parish church.

Host your reception

There is also the option to position a marquee within the park to hold your wedding reception, with stunning views over Rutland Water. As the evening draws in Normanton Church can be illuminated for you to wow your guests as they dance into the night with you. 

We are able to offer a couple of sites for hire at Rutland Water for a Marquee reception. We have teamed up with two local companies:




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