The Ashes Wedding Barns | Staffordshire

Personal blog alert!! Did I mention I'm getting married? Katie and I have started planning our own wedding day, and I'm going to share our experiences on my blog. So here goes!

Staffordshire has so many amazing wedding venues to offer so we are starting not far from where we live, at the beautiful Ashes wedding barn in Endon, Staffordshire... 

We arrived on a crisp but misty autumn morning. Driving down the long and windy driveway passing the lake we could barley see the barns through a blanket of fog. This only added to our excitement and made the place feel really magical... 
We were greeted by a lovely member of the Ashes team who showed us around the grand yet cosy venue. 

First stop the ceremony barn. As you walk in you notice beautiful windows flooding the rustic barn with natural light, perfect for a photographer! The high ceiling and exposed beams add to the character. I'd describe it as rustic yet modern, it feels like a barn but without the need for hay bales and cattle! 
If the weather is right you have the option to tie the knot outdoors at the coach house, surrounded by the gardens. I do like the idea of saying your vows under the sweeping stone arch while your guests look on from the lawn, however the British climate may not allow for this...
