Sugar Loaf Barn Wedding - Hannah & Gareth

Gorgeous September Wedding

A mixture of old and new greeted me with Hannah & Gareth’s wedding back in September. A beautiful new venue that I’d not had the pleasure of working at before, and having known Hannah’s family for a good many years there was the old, in some faces whom I hadn’t seen in a long time.

Sugar Loaf Barn, located up in the hills just outside of Abergavenny, was the venue for the day. A fully operational farm by winter, stunning wedding venue by summer. Marcus and the others really have a little gem here!

When you decide to get married at Sugar Loaf Barn you get to make use of the beautiful converted barn house for the weekend and this is where the bridal preparation took place. Queue a little madness, plenty of children and cousins running around and a rather nasty sickness bug that hit camp a few days before, which made for some ‘interesting’ and certainly unique moments during the day that I can say I haven’t seen at a wedding before!!

The ceremony took place in the main barn complete with a male voice choir and some stunning views out over the Welsh countryside, we really are so lucky to live where we do. It’s hard to believe that such a great space gets transformed from a fully operational farm shed to a wonderful wedding venue each spring when lambing has finished.

I’m really proud of the work I produced from Hannah & Gareth’s big day. The time I have alone with a couple for some more intimate photos can sometimes be limited, but Hannah & Gareth were more than happy to oblige and this part of their day I’m especially happy with.

When it comes to narrowing down photos to include on a blog post, I always find it a challenge but this one was particularly more so. Oh, and the photo of the young boy who looks like he’s ‘flipping the bird’ at me - purely coincidental (I think!).
