Top Wedding Tips

Be organised... Do your research, take notes and save everything from written quotes to contracts, fabric swatches and receipts for any deposits paid, all into one folder.

Do what you want to do... Plan the wedding you want, rather than what your parents or in-laws might be pushing you towards.

Book your venue first... don’t leave it too late as diaries get booked up fast. Source the venue and get your church or civil ceremony booked in – the rest of the wedding will build around this.

Normanton Park Hotel
A lovely venue in a stunning location. The package we have chosen is exclusively for 2023 for 50 guests with the option of adding extra guests at £85 for day and £12.95 for evening. The package includes an arrival drink, the wedding breakfast, a glass of house wine, plus glass of sparkling for the toast, and bacon rolls & potato wedges for the evening reception. Linen, cake stand, Master of Ceremonies, plus the bridal suite is also included in the package. The grounds overlook Rutland water and there is plenty of space to sit outside and socialise with everyone or simply take in the gorgeous view. The hotel is a short walk from Normanton Church which is a popular civil ceremony venue for a maximum of 100 guests and is located ‘on the water’. Perfect for Wedding photos and perfect for a smaller wedding.

Great location
We chose this location for our wedding reception as it’s a short walk from Normanton Church. The hotel being so close made for a really laidback feel as no one needed any transportation from the church to the hotel. The hotel provided lots of options of food and drink. We opted to have Pimms and beer for guests on arrival, half a bottle of wine per guest and brought our own prosecco for the toasts. We also opted for a BBQ as our ceremony was 4.30pm at the church and a three course meal would have taken up most of the evening. The hotel were happy to cater for both vegetarian and vegan guests. We paid for exclusive use of the hotel for the day of our wedding (Friday) but the hotel were great at letting us and a handful of vendors come in on Thursday to prepare the room which was a HUGE weight off our shoulders. Overall, we had a great day and the hotel were very accommodating and helpful. My only criticisms would be that the bridal suite could do with a bit of touching up/deep cleaning and that certain details were glossed over after the day was over (the hotel almost let us leave without half of our wedding cake, we had to chase for and go back to get 80 charger plates that had been paid for by us, the huge amount of fruit had all been taken off the wedding cake but never put out for guests and they denied having the fruit in the hotel when asked for it). However, the positives massively outweighed the negatives and I’m so happy we had our special day here.

Normanton park hotel
I visited my venue just once in my life, we wasn’t even looking to book, I had been engaged a year since my hubby to be popped the question in Portugal over the sunset, as soon as I visited this place for lunch, I was booking it on my way home and setting the date! We both fell in love it is so beautiful, our wedding co-ordinated Wayne has been brilliant, funny and quirky like us to which has helped it seem a little more stress free. I can not wait to marry the love of my life at our perfect venue after being proposed to at the perfect spot. Never thought this would ever happen for me, but here I am living it :) it’s the best feeling!

During covid of had felt very distant to be able to plan, however Wayne was very helpful for getting booked and also patient when awaiting dates from the church.
I also visited with my mum and even though they were closed mid week - (before the big lock down) staff happily showed us round and made sure we were okay. Can't wait for 2022 now
