I love photographing weddings at Buxted Park, such an amazing venue and the best part is that you don’t need to worry about the weather! I arrived early to get a few shots of the magnificent building, before catching up with Sam for some getting ready shots downstairs. The ceremony was in the Orangery, and the main group was done straight afterwards, on the staircase of the orangery itself, there was no way we could have gone outside! We then headed to the Coat Of Arms Lounge for the drinks reception. We shot a few family groups undercover behind the pillars, before finishing off with the couple portraits. Luckily towards the end of the session the rain finally stopped and we had a chance to pop down to the pond for the classic Buxted Park wedding photo! It was then time for a just a few candids before the wedding breakfast and speeches. In the evening I took them outside for a couple of night shots before the first dance.
Built in 1722 by Sir Thomas Medley, Buxted Park’s history is as colourful as it is long. Over the years, the house has played host to society’s movers and shakers including William Wordsworth, Winston Churchill and Marlon Brando. Buxted Park is a very polular venue for weddings, and I regularly photograph weddings there each year.
