A wedding at The Ashes

Lauren & Paul made a great choicein having their wedding at The Ashes – it’s a beautiful wedding venue on the edge of the Staffordshire Moorlands not far from Leek. It’s made up of the West Barn for wedding ceremonies and the East Barn for the wedding breakfast and evening reception. There is the main house, a huge lake and even highland cattle in the fields! It’s a beautiful place for a wedding!!

Prep in the morning

Lauren, her bridesmaids and mum were all set up in The Old Dairy, having their and makeup done while Paul and his men were busy blowing up balloons and putting the final touches to the venue for the day ahead. Sarah, the event manager was fab – she even helped to sew Lauren into her dress – they are multi-talented these event managers!!

The wedding ceremony at The Ashes

The ceremony was held by Richard, one of the registrars and it was lovely – some great readings too and lovely tears!! Then out into the courtyard to enjoy the sunshine while we had it. After a big group photo of everyone and confetti time, we headed over to the gardens of the main hosue for a few family photos in the sunshine. Lauren & Paul then had some more time to mingle with their guests and then just before dinner we took what was going to be little walk down the driveway, but Lauren had other ideas and set off for the corn fields! Fair play – in those shoes it was very impressive!!

Then time for speeches and a tapas style dinner!!! We’ll be working on the Full Gallery over the next few weeks but in the meantime, here’s a little Sneak Peek to keep you all going!! Turn it up and enjoy!! 😀
