Today we want to share with you two exceptional award-winning wedding venues in The Midlands. One offering rustic charm and the other country house grandeur – yet both are exquisite. The first being The Ashes Exclusive Country House Barn Wedding Venue Staffordshire; the second is Pendrell Hall Exclusive Country House Wedding Venue with accommodation Staffordshire.

So where do we begin gushing about these two extremely stunning wedding venues? If you are in search of a rustic ambience to your wedding day, The Ashes has been voted as one of the best wedding venues in the UK in the prestigious wedding industry awards for 3 years running. Set in 50 acres of rolling Staffordshire countryside, the wedding venue features outstanding backdrops for your wedding photographs including The Country House, The Lake, The Pond, The Formal Lawn, The Coach House, The Old Stone Bridge and of course the near-panoramic views across the Staffordshire Moorlands.

Back in August 2014 it was the wedding venue of choice for Harry Needs and his bride, Olympic Gold Medallist Rebecca Adlington, who exchanged their vows and celebrate their marriage at The Ashes.

Couples can enjoy an intimate wedding ceremony in the rustic setting of The West Barn, one of two Grade II* Listed wedding barns at The Ashes; licensed for weddings, this magnificent stone barn can seat up to 150 guests comfortably.

If you envisaged a country house wedding, then Pendrell Hall in the West Midlands is a romantic wedding reception setting. The wedding venue combines all the character and romance of Victorian England with gorgeous contemporary interiors to suit any wedding theme. The interior is so beautiful there is no need to go outside! From stain glass door to artistic wallpaper. Yet the wedding venue sits within six acres of idyllic gardens on the edge of Codsall Wood in Staffordshire, your wedding reception guests can enjoy a drink outside on a fine day, soaking in the ambience or perhaps enjoying a game of croquet on the lawn.
