“I’ve been surrounded by shooting for my entire lifetime” – Awel Hughes

I’ve been surrounded by shooting for my entire lifetime with pheasant shoots being held on our land in North Wales.

I’ve also been fortunate to find a husband with the same love for shooting and country sports as me and my family. Inevitably, our wedding in August had a strong shooting theme as our two Labrador gundogs assisted with Owain’s proposal!

We had bespoke stationery designed with our own ‘Mr and Mrs’ pheasants, feathers in the buttonholes and flowers and shotgun cartridges for the buttonholes and name cards. We are now looking forward to the season ahead as Owain shoots and Awel works the dogs.
