I can not believe it has been almost a year since I photographed this gorgeous Rutland Water Wedding shoot at the Rutland Water golf course in Manton. At the time I had only lived in Rutland for 4 months and wanted to get to know the local are and its wedding community and what better a reason to meet them then setting up a styled wedding shoot.

Unless of course you have a cheeky little prep post like this one to help you along that is.

If you are anything like me when I was ‘ahem’ planning my wedding (In truth my husband planned it all but that is a different blog all together) you buy the wedding magazines religiously and then jump straight to the ‘real weddings section’.
Let me guess, you’re thinking: Why, would I spend valuable wedding budget on a Second photographer? Why does this photographer feel that she needs help or even a backup?!
