Jenkinsons at The Ashes

Jenkinsons Caterers are proud to be the exclusive caterers at The Ashes. We’ve enjoyed working with this amazing wedding venue since it opened in 2008 and it has been an honour to be a part of their incredible journey towards winning the Best Wedding Venues UK category in 2014.

The Wedding Industry Awards are incredibly important, as it is only the Brides and Grooms who got married at The Ashes in 2014 who can vote. Having won the regional title Best Wedding Venue West Midlands 2015, we wish The Ashes every success in the National Awards in January.
