Nestled in the heart of East Sussex, Buxted Park Hotel is an emblem of grandeur and charm, an ideal backdrop for an intimate wedding ceremony. I had the delightful opportunity to capture a spectacular outdoor civil wedding on the grand lawns of this iconic venue. I’ve shot here a couple of times beforehand I love this wedding from almost ten years ago: RICHARD & DANIELLE’S BUXTED PARK WEDDING
From ethereal veil shots during the golden hour to joyous dance steps, this Buxted Park Hotel wedding was truly one for the books.
