Wedding Photographer: The Ashes Barns Country House, Stoke-on-Trent: Ash & Beth

Amy was the wedding photographer at The Ashes Barns Country House, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire UK for Ash & Beth’s wedding.

Mid-August 2015 and I took a well-earned rest from the intense Italian heat and flew back to the UK with the family in tow. My trip covered 2 weddings, the first was the wedding of Ash & Beth at The Ashes near to Stoke-on-Trent; a beautiful venue that Olympian swimmer Rebecca Adlington had chosen just a few weeks before.

I’d met Beth before when she was a Bridesmaid at the wedding of Ric & Claire in Sorrento the previous year. I thought I’d travelled a long way for the wedding but Ash & Beth now live in Australia and had travelled home to get married with their gorgeous little boy who was the star of the show. Take a look:

I rarely publish ‘standard’ family group shots on here but, here’s a big one – just to prove that I can do them!
