I had a lovely trip into darkest Staffordshire to see Jenn & Rob get wed at The Ashes wedding venue near Leek a while back. The weather was not being kind. The drive there took me through puddles the size of small lakes, and I had to have Whitesnake turned up extra loud to hear it over the pounding rain.
Still, the forecast was promising, and on I went. Sure enough, pretty much just about the time Jenn was ready to emerge from preparations and walk across the courtyard to the wedding barn, the clouds lightened and miraculously started to disappear :)
Instructions for the day were for a mix of some official wedding type shots with lots of informal documentary style shots throughout the day too. My favourite!
I wanted to start things off with a few bridal prep shots as everybody was just over the courtyard in the lovely cottage style apartment.
Throughout the day we got together a lovely selection of shots. Yes, all of those colourful paper cranes were folded by hand, here are some of my fave shots!
