Until this year I’ve unintentionally managed to swerve weddings at Buxted Park. This has always been down to my being booked elsewhere with other couples but this time around Rachael and Michael booked me early enough to secure my services at this stunning venue!
Their wedding was on Easter Sunday and it was a lovely sunny day without a cloud in the sky. Their wedding ceremony was held in the Orangery with the main dinner taking place in the Ballroom before being utilised later in the evening for the band and dancing.
Buxted Park – The Venue
Buxted Park is huge and for those taking the option of exclusive use will find this even more apparent. There are so many rooms, so many small areas to hide in that finding a moment of privacy is easy to do.
From a photography point of view the options are limitless. There is always going to be the obligatory shot with the pillars as they are dramatic and imposing so it’s a must have shot. Further from that though there is so much greenery and secluded locations to take advantage of I was spoilt for choice.
The (not so) hidden gem though is outside at the front of Buxted Park. There are winding roads and large trees nearby which can be taken advantage of (if time allows).
Everywhere is generally well lit. In particular, the Bridal suites, Ballroom and Orangery are well suited. My only caveat is that if you are considering having a band please ensure they bring some additional stage lighting to add some colour to the ballroom.
Buxted Park Weddings
A venue particularly suited to Weddings Buxted Park ticks all the boxes. It’s well run, the food is excellent and the staff are all great to have around. It’s easy to get lost in but that’s never usually a bad thing. I’m next there in April 2012 but maybe I’ll be there again sooner. I hope so.
