M&S Wedding at Buxted Park Hotel, East Sussex

Due to privacy I have agreed to not name the couple of this wedding, and shall refer to them as M&S.

This was another new wedding venue for me, this time based in East Sussex, M&S held their wedding ceremony at 13th century St Thomas A’becket Framfield Church in Uckfield.

This was slightly further out from my normal haunts in Surrey, but it was a delightful embark into the beautiful East Sussex countryside, and the church lived up to the classic stereotypical old English village church.

The ceremony all went to plan smoothly and without a hitch, and with the weather in true top form it was a perfect setting for M&S.

After quickly grabbing a couple of portraits of the bride and groom utilising the church yard’s gate way, we then headed off to the amazing reception venue; Buxted Park Hotel.

Wow, what a venue!  I absolutely loved this venue, it had stunning and vast external grounds – which provided us with so many photographic opportunities.  We were truly spoiled for choice.

Whilst we captured quite a selection of portraits of the couple, there were still so many more that I could have gone on to photograph – but you have to draw the line somewhere; after all there is a balance to be made between capturing enough photos for your client and not keeping them away from their wedding party for too long!

All in all I think there was a fab selection throughout the day, and it was a thoroughly enjoyable, even though it was hard work in the hot sun – but we got some great images.
