Why do you want to capture your wedding on video?
Because we’ll only do it once! And it’s probably the only time in our lives we’ll have all of our friends and family together in one day! And the venue is beautiful.

Tell us about the proposal:
Niall proposed in our flat on the 4th December 2016. It was a sunny, cold day and we’d been in Edinburgh with friends for the weekend. We got up early for a Sunday and went for a walk through the Botanics, then we came back and Niall cooked brunch. He told me he had a surprise Xmas decoration for me (which I thought was a bit random!) so he went to get it from the bedroom and told me to close my eyes. He was faffing about for 5 minutes so I told him to hurry up! When I said I could open them he told me there was also a small gift that went with the decoration; he then got down on one knee and brought out the ring and told me to look behind me. He had set up a light box that read, Be my wife?? So I laughed, then cried and then said yes!

The venue(s), why this place above anywhere else?
The Byre at Inchyra was the the only place we wanted and the only place we looked at. We didn’t want a hotel or anything as grand as a castle. I wanted to get married in the countryside and we loved the relaxed, rustic vibe – it felt very ‘us’.

Why Do You Want to Capture Your Wedding on Video?:
So that we can look back and remember the day and see all the little parts we missed! See everyone having fun and get a different perspective on it.

How Did You Meet?:
We met at Newcastle uni through the ski and snowboard club. For the first year we were just friends then the next year Chris was President of the ski club and I (Hannah) was race captain – so we had to talk quite a bit and then it developed into something more!

Describe The Proposal?:
We were away skiing in Meribel with another couple. On the last day we went up to one of our favourite off-piste runs and the other couple left us (feigning migraines) and we ducked under the rope and started trekking along the ridge. After a while, Chris skied down to the top of the ridge where we would ski down from and then said he’d take a photo of me… then he clicked off his skis and I knew what was happening. I followed him down the mountain like a giddy child following a ski instructor and then we met our friends for lunch… next thing I know both of our families jumped out from behind a wall which was the next surprise! We had a boozy lunch followed by apres ski – it was amazing!

Why this place above anywhere else:
This is Chris’ parent’s place – they bought it 3 years ago and have been renovating it ever since. So it’s very special to us all and is unique – the previous owners were married here but no one else so far! It is a
stunning building with such beautiful grounds!
