The Deer Park is one of my most favourite local venues to photograph at. So I was delighted when this fabulous couple asked me to shoot their Deer Park wedding. The Deer Park is a stylish and relaxed country house with an impressive backdrop. Whether it’s the Italian garden, expansive lawn, cornfields or walled garden. The Deer Park has all the ingredients for a truly relaxed and beautiful wedding. And this one was no exception.
