This Is Us
Our Dream Of A Really Awesome Barn Wedding Venue in Wales!
We are Neil + Han - Team Giraffe! We are a husband and wife team living and hustling on our family farm in Mid Wales with our little ragbags, Idris + Eiry (actual legends), our dog Bowie, Cat Freddy, and a few hundred sheep - Baa. Farming, the outdoors, music/gigs, snuggling, beer and tacos float our boats! We have travelled the world together and are now nestled and settled on the farm, and there is nowhere we would rather be.
Neil is a trained Electrician and he decided to come back to farm his family farm in 2013 - he hasn’t looked back. Han is an award winning wedding photographer (sorry, she’s not included in your wedding package - but she has the most amazing recommendation list of togs). An electrician and a wedding photographer, turns out that this is the best combination there is to create a killer barn wedding venue, kid you not.
The shed that stood there before our build was called The Giraffe Shed, named by Neil’s Grandad Archie - we both felt the new shed had to have the same name. Neil, apart from having superhuman powers that no one quite understands, can build pretty much anything Han’s weird little brain thinks up and has the best problem solving techniques known to man.
Han has had the wedding venue dream for 5 years after visiting so many weird and wonderful venues as a photographer. She envisioned her dream of a stunning barn wedding venue (Wales just so happened to become the ideal place to set up!) and can’t believe it’s come true. The design of the shed was made through the eyes of a photographer, so bask in the incredible natural light that floods through the floor to ceiling glass wall, the huge epic reclaimed window wall, the pink wall, glowing neon lights, our candy stripe, and rustic burned black wall frontage.
Han will attend your day from the word go right through until the final drink is supped making sure everything is as awesome as it can be, and Neil will be on site throughout your wedding day being all superhuman and extra!
The Shed is part giant rustic barn with surrounding meadows to frolic; part industrial warehouse with concrete detailing; part your living room, with sofas and delicious dusky pink walls. It’s the perfect balance of being blank canvas enough that you can put your own stamp on it, and yet characterful enough to deserve the story of your big day. We can’t wait to help you make your dreams a reality!
