A winter wonderland wedding at Buxted Park, with Kerry Ann Duffy Photography

I can’t imagine how exciting it must feel for winter brides and grooms as the leaves start falling from the trees… the first frost instantly reminds me of snow and cosy nights in… and winter weddings. Today I wanted to share a really beautiful wedding from Buxted Park: Fiona and Mark styled a winter wonderland wedding at this gorgeous venue and I’m delighted to be able to share all of their fabulous images with you today.

Thanks to Kerry Ann Duffy for sharing the photographs of Mark and Fiona’s day with us on the English Wedding Blog. You can see more of Kerry’s photographs here – do have a look. (Fiona was so pleased with her photos she recommended Kerry to her sister and friends, who have booked her for their weddings!)
