Although it is a Church, it has been deconsecrated.  Which means it can no longer hold religious ceremonies.  This will rule out this wedding venue for some couples.  But if you’re planning a civil ceremony then this could be the perfect choice.

Wedding ceremonies can take place at either end of Normanton Church.  The far end is the most popular.  The church used to be a museum, and relics from this time can still be seen on the wall.  Although some couples find the thought of the tools in their wedding photos a bit odd.  Most do not see as it a problem and in keeping with this iconic church’s history.

As a local photographer in Oakham, I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph several weddings at Normanton Church.  The church never loses its charm and with the unpredictable English weather, no two weddings are the same.  From blue summer skies to golden autumn sunsets.  Learn more about my wedding photography and contact me if you’d like to arrange a chat about your wedding plans.
