Hitchen’s Barn Wedding Photographer

Weddings at Hitchen’s Barn

I was recently asked to be a Hitchen’s Barn wedding photographer. Hitchen’s Barn is a restaurant in the heart of Oakham from the award winning team previously of the Berkeley Arms in Wymondham. Hitchen’s Barn serves Modern British & locally sourced food. They have been awarded a Bib Gourmand in the 2020 & 2021 edition of the Michelin guide – so you know the food is out of this world. That’s not it though, a combination of warm and friendly customer service, as well as a beautiful interior makes it a great choice for a small, intimate, wedding.

Normanton Church and The Rutland Belle

Normanton Church is a grade II listed building located on the shore of Rutland Water. Normanton used to be a village, and the church, built in the 14th century served as a parish church until the 1700s. It now serves as a beautiful wedding venue in the heart of Rutland. It’s iconic in the area and attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year.

The Rutland Belle is a family-run business that operates boat trips around the lake during daylight hours from April to October each year. Rutland Belle plies from Whitwell on the North Shore and calls in at Normanton on the South Shore. Visitors can enjoy the scenery from the water, amidst the sailors, anglers and waterbirds, whilst listening to commentary highlighting points of interest. On top of this, you can hire it for you and your wedding party to have a tour of the lake after your ceremony. It’s a really special way to spend an hour or so, having your drinks reception on top of a boat is just really cool!

Natural Wedding Photography

As you’ve seen from my website, I take a natural, relaxed approach to wedding photography. Because of this, you will end up with authentically real wedding images – which are a true representation of your day.

I like to think of myself as a guest, I will fit in to your day seamlessly – often using a wide angle lens and a shallow depth of field to tell a story in every frame. I will also eat canapes.

You will end up with 4-600 beautifully shot and edited images from your day, on a password protected gallery. To see more details about what I offer, take a look here at my (non) packages.

If you are looking for a Hitchen’s Barn wedding photographer, or indeed, a natural wedding photographer for any venue throughout the UK, get in touch with me today and we can discuss how I will fit in with your plans and create some beautiful memories for you.
