Nadean + Gavin | The Ashes, Endon
Nadean + Gavin chose The Ashes in Endon, nr Leek for their wedding venue – a stunning setting that I have had the pleasure of working at several times over the years. Set in it’s own countryside dwelling and abound with character, it really is the perfect wedding venue.
One of the most important elements of the wedding, was the coming together of the families, especially with Gavin’s three children being an integral part of the day. It was knowing this about their families that allowed me to observe and document their special parts of the day, from Gavin’s two daughters being beautiful bridesmaids, to his son being the proud ring bearer at the front of the ceremony, it made the wedding extra special to witness and capture. The whole feel of the day was very special and very emotional with a distinct emphasis on letting the whole day flow naturally and capture the story in a true documentary style – my truly perfect wedding.
It was a pleasure to be with Nadean + Gavin for their wedding, documenting their day from arrival at The Ashes through to their wedding reception in the barns. I hope you enjoy this little insight into their day.
