The Ashes Wedding Photography Laura and Dean

Laura and Dean were married in August 2015, at The Ashes, Staffordshire . Voted Best Wedding Venue (National Winner ) 2014 and best Countryside Wedding Venue (West Midland) 2015 in the Wedding Industry Awards, I hope you enjoy this the Ashes Wedding Photography.

What's interesting about the lakeside venue is its multiple buildings, meaning bridal preparations could take place on the grounds - and all brides knows every minute counts! The ladies huddled away in The Old Dairy to enjoy a glass of fizz and get Laura aisle-ready. She slipped into a wonderful gown from the range Bride to Be, by Hannah Lois , whilst Caro Millington took care of hair and makeup. The look was finished off by flowers from The Topiary Tree Florist .

In the meantime a vintage double-decker bus escorted family and friends to the venue, a surreal sight in the foothills of the Peak District National Park and a favorite of my the Ashes wedding photography shots.

Guests gathered in the West Barn, the venue's oldest structure. Despite its Grade ll* listing, inside provided a cosy, rustic backdrop for the ceremony, which like all wedding ceremonies was touching and not without its tears.

Next it was over to the East Barn for a super hero themed wedding breakfast - check out the groomer's sock! Dean had not one but two best men, Thomas and Christopher, the speeches by whom were typically entertaining.

The new Mr and Mrs took a stroll thought the venue woodland, pausing for a moment of reflection at The Sweetheart's Bench beside the pond. Eager to take advantage of the location, they wandered across the Formal Lawn to enjoy breathtaking lakeside views of the Peak District.

Finally it was time for the first dance. Music was provided by Sound Solutions , whilst party games including a giant Jenga set awaited guests in the courtyard when they needed a breather. Children also enjoyed meeting animals from the adjoint fields.

Huge congratulations to the happy couple - I'm pleased Laura finally found her Superman....
