The Hand at Llanarmon is the perfect venue for ceremonies including:

Celebrant Weddings

Also an excellent venue for a funeral wake

The Hand at Llanarmon is an ancient hostelry with all the attributes you’d expect – bags of character, a cosy, relaxing ambience and a warm welcome from your hosts, Jonathan and Jackie Greatorex. As soon as you arrive you feel the weight of the world dissolving as the surroundings work their magic. All the classic ingredients are here – old beams, roaring fireplaces, a casual mix-and-match of pine and oak furniture, real ale and good food. The latter is seriously good. Thanks to the talents of Head Chef Grant Mulholland and his team, The Hand is renowned for award-winning food; an inventive marriage of country fare and sophisticated metropolitan cuisine.

The bedrooms, in a variety of sizes, have all been decorated to a high standard and boast sparkling modern bathrooms, satellite TV and all the amenities that you would expect from a country house hotel.

Country lovers just love the location. You can walk in the Berwyns for hours with only the sheep for company and the ever-helpful Hand can arrange many country pursuits, including horse riding, fishing and shooting. You may be away from it all, but you’ll also be in the swing of things; this gem of a country inn is so much a part of village life that locals and visitors mix in unaffected harmony.

Funeral Photography - 'A funeral is not a day if a lifetime....it is a lifetime in a day"


Although funerals and celebration of life services unquestionably carry a weight of sadness, they can also be emotional rewarding and uplifting with many heart-warming moments. A specialist funeral photographer will capture these moments, discreetly and from a distance, ensuring the genuine emotions of the day remain unbroken. The photographs will show the love, shared memories and compassion of the mourners present who have assembled to bid a fond and heartfelt farewell to a family member, friend or colleague.

Should you have photographs taken at funerals and celebration of life services?

Many families and friends question the use of photographs & videos at funerals. While most of us are familiar with having a photographer at special events such as wedding, not everyone is comfortable with the idea of having a photographer to capture the capture the many emotions and moments throughout the funeral. However, capturing special moments at a funeral is acceptable and it can be beneficial to family members, friends and colleagues.

Is it OK to photograph a funeral or celebration of life?

The shortest answer is yes. Of course, before going ahead and hiring a photographer, it is best to consult with close family members to make sure everyone agrees with it. It is not unusual to have a family member that might feel uncomfortable with photographing such an intimate occasion. 

Reasons to photograph a funeral or celebration of life service.

Photography can have more benefits than most people think. And in the end, it captures a significant moment in your family’s life, not to mention it serves as a way to remember your deceased loved one and capture many emotions and moments on the day. 

Share the special moments with Family and Friends

In today’s modern world, not everyone lives close to their home town. That means we all have family members and friends scattered all over the world. A hardback memory photobook is a way to save the moment for those who couldn’t attend due to travel constraints, illness, or any other obstacle in their way.

Preserve the memories

Of course, you want to preserve the happy memories you have of your loved ones. But, during a funeral or celebration of life service, it is very likely friends, and family will share beautiful and personal moments together. A beautiful ‘funeral photobook’ can help you preserve those special and intimate memories. 

To help ease the grieving process

At first, it may be impossible for you to look at photographs of your loved one’s celebration of life or funeral. But, when the time is right, you can turn to the funeral photobook to remember how much your loved one was appreciated. Revisiting these beautiful memories can help you embrace your loss and help with the grieving process.

If you would like to discuss the option to have a photographer at the service of your loved one, please contact me, and I will put you in touch with Steve at Forever Images because I know he will do fabulous job for you.
