Finch's Arms Wedding



Marie-Claire & Dave - 29th December 2009

St. Nicholas' Church, Stretton, Rutland
The Finch's Arms, Hambleton, Rutland


We love Navy weddings. This was our third of the year, and a referral from a wedding we'd shot in August, and just as we'd expected, Marie-Claire and Dave's wedding was a wonderful way to end a very busy year for us.

We travelled up to Rutland from Dorset very early through torrential rain and once we arrived at Stretton, the roads resembled a skating rink. The ushers did a great job of digging a path through the snow along the long lane to the church. Luckily no injuries were suffered.

In the church no-one was brave enough to remove their coats and we know long johns were worn by at least one member of the bridal party! We listened to a fantastic piano solo by Vicky, ably assisted by Matt(well someone's got to turn the pages).

After the very cold but atmospheric ceremony we headed off to the 17th century Finch's Arms on Rutland Water. We left after the first dance for a rather treacherous drive through snow back home to Dorset and a 5 week break before the season starts all over again.

"Thank you once again for your work at our wedding, you have definitely created some lasting memories of our special day and Marie-Claire has already started recommending you to people!"

"It appears there is no such thing as married bliss in the Navy and we will now be apart for over half of the year, with me still working in Rutland. However, having the gorgeous photos to look at online really helps bring a huge smile to my face when I'm missing him!"

"Many thanks for all your hard work, it has been lovely to go through the album design this morning, reliving the whole experience again! You captured it so perfectly!"
