Bride and Groom at Templewood House for a sunset wedding photo.

Cute moments, an incredible collection of fine wines and an overflowing of joy in every direction you looked is the way I would describe Kirby and Ash’s wedding at Templewood House. It was clear that a lot of effort went into putting this day together, and boy oh boy did it pay off. They were […]
