We have been really looking forward to a Buxted Park wedding, so were absolutely delighted when the lovely Richard and Katy contacted us about photographing their festive wedding on the 2nd January.
Built in 1722 by Sir Thomas Medley, Buxted Park’s history is as colourful as it is long. Over the years, this East Sussex hotel has played host to movers and shakers including William Wordsworth, Winston Churchill and Marlon Brando. You can see what attracted the great and the good as you explore this country retreat’s many rooms and why it still proves so popular today with fashionable couples planning the greatest day of their life. The photographic opportunities are plenty with gorgeous settings inside and out it really is a beautiful location .
Richard and Katy are a really laid back, fun couple and they were keen for their wedding to reflect this. They had organised and action packed day starting with the bride getting ready at The Chequers Inn which is a short journey from Buxted Park which Katy took in a Horse and carriage. Unfortunately the heavens decided to open thoughout the wedding day but this wasn’t going to deter us from documenting every precious moment.
Katy looked gorgeous and so happy as she walked down the aisle on the arm of her very proud Dad, towards a fairly emotional Richard. It was very apparent how perfect they are for each other as they laughed and giggled their way through the service and this set the mood for the rest of the day.
With a mariachi band serenading the guests before the reception and the brilliant ‘Singing Waiters’ of ‘Dramatic Events Ltd’ which were a surprise for the Groom during the meal, there was much laughter and frivolity.
Despite the weather we not only captured the events of the day but took some lovely romantic pictures of the couple out under the pillars, a fab shot in the corridor with candles and lighting and used the lovely staircase with a beautiful chandelier.
We finished capturing a sparkler shot at the front of the hotel, this was followed by a spectacular firework display in the hotel grounds.
