The Ashes Wedding Venue Photos in Staffordshire
The Ashes Wedding Venue
Tony and Michelle’s wedding was at the beautiful The Ashes Barns Country House in Endon, Staffordshire. We love it there. Two beautifully converted stone barns, a country house and beautiful views over a lake and the surrounding countryside – What more could you want for a wedding day? Oh yeah, lots of fun and awesome people!!
I joined Michelle in the old dairy for her bridal preparations with her sister, her mum and Tony’s daughter. The sun was shining (just about!) and everything was set to be an amazing day. Tony arrived with his boys bright and early, looking relaxed, despite a small stressful printer malfunction back at home. As guests arrived the atmosphere started to build and the stage was set for Shell’s entrance for their wedding.
The Wedding Ceremony
After the lovely ceremony and we all hung out in the sunshine for drinks, canapés and some photos in the courtyard before it was time to head inside for dinner and speeches.
We always like to take the opportunity to do some photos after dinner when the sunshine has dropped a little bit and everything is more relaxed. Usually helped by a few drinks over dinner. Tony, however, wasn’t so relaxed. Unbeknown to me, he wasn’t a massive fan of poo (well who is, I guess!!!), and I managed to take them both for a wander down to the lake which seemed to be the local toilet for every goose and duck in the area!!! Still, the photos down there looked beautiful and Tony just about held it together before making a quick retreat to the clean paths 🙂
The Evening Reception
The evening was made even better by the arrival of Mansfield Avenue – An awesome wedding band and without a doubt our favourite magician Tom Wright AKA Tommy Magic. If you think that wedding magicians can be a bit cheesy, then you’ve never seen Tom – he’s friggin’ awesome!!!
Such a great day and everyone had an amazing time – we loved hanging out with you guys!
