Hannah + Ollie

As we only have a very limited guest list due to restricted numbers, we want to give our guests a very personal and intimate experience.

Why do you want to capture your wedding at The Barn at Brynich on film?

We have had to cut our guest list by over half, we have had to call most of our family and all our friends and explain to them that due to the current circumstances they are no longer invited to our wedding. None of these have been easy calls to make and we feel very guilty for going ahead with the wedding and uninviting so many people, but ultimately it’s our day and we will go ahead and become husband and wife as long as it possible and allowed under the restrictions, we have been engaged for 2 years and are ready to be married. I want it all captured on video so that our friends and family who were unable to come can still feel like they were part of our special day.I also want it as a memory to watch and relive time and time again, I want to hear the music and feel how I felt on that day whenever I watch it. Before the restriction on guest numbers was in place we did not have the budget for it although I wanted to, so with the extra money I thought I would be able to finally get a Videographer, the more I thought about it, the more I worried I would regret not having one!

Is there a favourite film of yours on our web site? We’d really love to know which one and why?

I can’t remember the name of the couple but there is a video where the highlights have music over them but also snippets from the Speeches. I love that style and thought it was really well done.

You guys?… What do you do ?.. How do you spendyour days?.. What’s important in life?

I’m a PE teacher at a primary school and also a personal trainer. I love motivating people to reach their goals and inspiring children to enjoy sport and fitness that will last a lifetime.

Ollie is a carpenter, locksmith and all round tradesman, he is such a hard worker and a perfectionist in anything he does!

At home we have a 3yr old mini schnauzer called Shelby, we love taking her out to New places and having long walks, unfortunately she won’t be able to join us for our wedding.

Was there a proposal? Tell us everything?

In July 2018, Ollie proposed to me at the top of Mount Snowdon. Nick and Karen, Ollie’s stepdad and his partner, came with us and we hiked for 4 hours up to the top, completely unaware that most of that time I was carrying the ring! Nick captured the moment in pictures and suddenly the 4 hour trek back down the mountain didn’t seem so daunting. From that moment I knew I wanted to get married in Wales.

The Barn at Brynich … Why this wedding venue above anywhere else?

The Barn at Brynich is a lovely, rustic, romantic place in Brecon, mid Wales. It was the first venue we looked at but we didn’t want to rush into anything, many discussions later and we realised it was the only place that made sense to us. Considering the situation lately I’m so glad we chose this venue as the staff have been amazing and kept in touch with us through every change of guidelines…which there have been many!

The grounds are beautiful and the views spectacular, especially during October with the full autumn colours showing in the trees and surrounding mountains.

What’s in store for your guests when they arrive at The Barn at Brynich?

As we only have a very limited guest list due to restricted numbers, we want to give our guests a very personal and intimate experience. I want them to be able to hear every word of our vows and know that they are very privileged to be part of our day.
