Michelle and Tom’s Buxted Park Hotel Wedding

I’ve had a brilliant year this year, shot some lovely weddings in great locations. Maybe it’s just luck but all my brides and grooms have been wonderful, none more so Tom and Michelle whose wedding today at Buxton Park Hotel in Sussex was great fun to photograph. I’d not photographed at Buxton Park before and enjoyed it immensely as it was one of those wedding venues that has plenty of room inside and out for the wedding guests to mingle and enjoy the afternoon. The bridal suite where Michelle and her sister Nicola got ready was huge – with great big bathroom, ideal for shooting pictures.

The complete gallery goes up when Tom and Michelle get back from their 4 week honeymoon. If you would like an email when the gallery goes live please click here.

In the meantime here’s a few images that  I liked.

Gotta start with a photograph of the shoes –

Michelle get’s tiara’ed (I’ve invented a new verb).

Tom, pre-ceremony.

And on with the frock.

I like the depth in this shot.

There’s never a bridesmaid around when you need one!

One nice touch with the wedding was the petals scattered over the flagstones of the ceremony room. Of course someone decided tbey needed tidying up, And handing out to the guests :)

Small bridesmaids, waiting to be unleashed.

Tom catches sight of his beautiful bride.

This is a fine example of paparazzi pose nr. 17b.

The brand new Mr. and Mrs. released into the wild.

A couple of favourite bride and groom portraits.

The first dance, I love taking pictures of this part of the day.

Only married a couple of hours and already Tom’s been snapped up!

Thanks again Tom and Michelle, have a great time in Canada and Hawaii!
