The Ashes is a new venue for us to visit being around an hour away in deepest darkest Staffordshire.
We were there for the fabulously lighthearted wedding of Jade and Stuart. Try as I did throughout the day to get some sensible, official type photographs, they all mysteriously turned out a bit more, well, like this :)
While I left the ladies to get ready, I got a nice shot of Stuart posing (only because I surprised him I think) in his full tartan.
The he had to finish his umbrella swordfight with his brother. This was going to be a lively afternoon!
Over in the apartment in the grounds, the bridal party were ready to make their way over for the ceremony, so we all had to be sensible for a bit.
This is one of my favourite shots as it really shows off the style of the venue, a pair of old converted barns seemingly in the middle of nowhere.
There seems to be quite a look of relief here now that the ceremony is finished.
Congratulations to Stuart & Jade!
