North Wales Wedding & Elopement Photographer



authentic. romantic. adventurous.

Hey there! I’m Babs!

I’m a professional wedding & elopement photographer

Wales and beyond












I’m based near Llangollen, close to the Clwydian Range and would love to photograph your magical wedding day or adventurous elopement anywhere in the UK!

I’m a bit of a free spirit with a true passion for the great outdoors! You don’t often see me without a least one of our 4 dogs around and I’m forever scouting out new locations for EPIC backdrops in your wedding or elopement photography!

Are you currently planning an elopement or a wedding in a beautiful country house? You may be looking for a really relaxed North Wales Wedding Photographer to capture your super scenic wedding in an authentic and beautiful way. Maybe you’re tempted to have a relaxed countryside pub wedding in the Ceiriog Valley? Do you LOVE human connections, raw emotions, laughter & romance and are looking for a local photographer to document your beautiful day?

As an experienced wedding photographer in North Wales I don’t believe that one size fits all which is why I offer half and full day wedding photography packages, ceremony only, elopement photography, and I also have hourly rates. It’s my absolute passion to provide wedding photography that tells the whole story of your day so that you can remember & relive every single moment of your most memorable day through your photographs – FOREVER!

Some of the beautiful venues I’ve photographed are Talhenbont Hall on the Llyn Peninsular, Tyn Dwr Hall in Llangollen, The Quay Hotel in Conwy and Pentre Mawr Country House in Llayndyrnog as well as the stunning Gwydir Castle near Conwy.


Capturing love stories for romantics in a creative and emotive way is the best job in the world!

“We just received our wedding photographs back and are completely blown away!!!”

Wedding & Elopement Photography in North Wales & beyond

If you’re looking for natural and authentic images without any of the cheese and wedding photography that tells your very own unique story – you’re in good hands! I love surrounding myself and working with people in love to capture all those intimate, spontaneous, and perfect moments of your day. I have photographed weddings at most local venues such as Tower Hill Barns in Trevor, Llangollen, Denbigh, Anglesey, and beyond – anywhere in the UK really. Please take a look at my blog posts or follow my photography work on Instagram where I post pretty much daily. If you love what you see shoot me an email and let’s begin your adventure!
