A Wedding at Ashes Barns | Chloe & Damien
Last year Chloe and Damien got in touch to see if I was available for their wedding at The Ashes Country House Barn, Endon, Stoke-on-Trent. Luckily for me I was. Myself and Damien once frequented the same Product Design class whilst at Sixth Form so the whole day was a nostalgia trip for me to be honest. Even though we had a small shared path it wasn’t Damien who contacted me. Chloe made contact through a recommendation of a previous friend from primary school. I do love the way different people dip in and out of your life in this way. I often spend time thinking about the vast number of people I have come to know over my many years walking this beautiful planet.
Chloe and Damien were happy to book without a first meeting so I didn’t actually meet Chloe and reconnect with Damien until our last meeting before the big day. There was no fear to be had though, Chloe was lovely and right down my street with the excitement behind her big day. It just left the rest of the guests to convince I was actually an all right guy.
Chloe and Damien’s day at the The Ashes Barns was a lovely late afternoon affair with loads of time outside in the breezy sunshine to be had. The Ashes Barns has a brilliant No Corkage Drinks policy, I don’t understand it fully but basically from what I understand you can supply your own alcohol right up until the bar opens later on. This was a fantastic feature as everyone could remain part of the day rather than queue at the bar. Also it does help add an extra bit of slippery-ness to those late night dance moves.
The Ashes Barns is nestled in a 50 acre estate which we got to roam to find some amazing photograph opportunities. Chloe and Damien were my favourite kind of couple. They were keen to just let me be me. Capturing the day from my angle, leaving the professional to do his job. Have faith in your photographer like Chloe and Damien and he will produce a unique gallery for you.
