Stephanie & Daniel’s The Ashes Wedding

The Ashes is one of my favourite Staffordshire venues, and I’ve been there so many times over the years. Stephanie and Daniel had booked me earlier in 2021 and I’d been looking forward to their day. 

I arrived at The Ashes a couple of hours before the ceremony time and captured some shots around the venue. Once Daniel I arrived I said hi and spent time filming him as he greeted their family and friends. It was a lovely warm autumn day so the guests were able to enjoy the outdoor space before making their way into the ceremony barn. 

The Ashes Wedding Ceremony

Daniel and the guests soon made their way into the ceremony barn ready for the big moment. I always like to see how excited and nervous grooms are at this point in the day, it’s so sweet. Stephanie had spent the morning getting ready in the bridal prep room, just next to the ceremony barn, so she was only a short walk away. She looked absolutely beautiful as she made her way down the driveway to the ceremony. Stephanie and Daniel put together a beautiful ceremony, and it was a joy to see them make. their vows to each other.

The Ashes Wedding Reception

After the ceremony Stephanie, Daniel and their guests made their way out of the ceremony barn into the sunshine, where they enjoyed refreshments. The couples chosen photographer was Deb Stott, Deb and I have worked together a couple of times over the years, and we always have such a lovely day together. It’s always nice to work with a familiar face! Deb organised everyone over to the lawn area for some portraits. It’s always so nice doing portraits outdoors when the weather is glorious. Nice and warm, no worrying about rain, no complaints here. The Ashes has some beautiful backdrops to work with, so it’s definitely a bonus if the weather is nice. 

After the family portraits we stole the couple off for some couples portraits. One of my favourite parts of the day. Once we were done it was time for the speeches and wedding breakfast. 

A delicious meal and wonderful speeches was followed by a lively evening party. It was a fantastic day, and a pleasure to be a part of. I wish Stephanie and Daniel the best for their future as Mr and Mrs.
