Grace, the driving force behind all the beautiful lakeside weddings that take place in our grounds, said: “A wedding is one of the most significant moments of a couple’s relationship, and being able to take care of them and relieve any stress makes me feel incredibly happy.
“I also love hearing and seeing couples’ ideas and helping them to transform their vision into reality… this is where my main passion lies.”

An ideal, central location for those with guests travelling from all over, Rutland is a wonderful meeting point — bringing families together in a convenient, stunning place.
With water featuring in the backdrop, acres of unspoilt countryside for photos, and easy, accessible transport links, it really is the perfect place to say ‘I do’.
Grace said, “Rutland is a beautiful hidden gem, with rolling hills and pretty, honey-stoned villages. We’re incredibly lucky to sit on the shores of Rutland Water, and you really cannot beat the views!
“The fairy-tale garden pagoda has the most amazing backdrop for an outdoor ceremony with expansive views of Rutland Water. It’s just beautiful, and you really could be anywhere in the world!
