Amy & Rory | Barnsdale Hall Wedding

Amy & Rory
Barnsdale Hall | Oakham, Rutland

I’ve said it many times before, but we’re definitely spoilt for choice of venues in Rutland, you definitely can’t go too far wrong organising a Barnsdale Hall wedding – it really is a stunning venue, perfectly placed on the shore of Rutland Water. Plus, you can get married outside overlooking the reservoir.

First things first (my wife really hates when I say that), we need to talk about the room where Amy got ready. I say room, it’s a suite. I say suite, it’s more like an apartment. I say apartment, you get the idea… It’s amazing, not only because I could help myself to coffee, but the space, the light, the windows, the view. Brilliant.


As I said, you can have your ceremony outside, overlooking the water; I helped shoot a wedding in Montenegro a couple of weeks previous to this, which was breathtaking, but it honestly was so similar to this outside ceremony. Probably better here, mainly because it was a 15 minute drive home rather than around three weeks of travelling for Montenegro.



Rory had two best men, he had 147 groomsmen, so I guess it made sense to have a couple of best men… They both delivered really heartfelt speeches, which showed how well liked Rory is; definitely up there with the best best man speeches I’ve heard, well done guys.

We were also blessed with a glorious sunset, again, we were perfectly placed to make the most of it.




It was a really great day, two lovely people, surrounded by their closest friends and family celebrating with them; exactly as it should be!

If you’re planning a Barnsdale Hall wedding, (or any wedding) then get in touch, I’d love to hear your plans.
