Snowdonia Wedding Photographer

I’m based near Llangollen in North Wales – not far from the Cheshire border and close to Snowdonia – with a real passion for the great outdoors and a love for travelling in my camper. Sharing unique and magical moments with adventurous couples is close to my heart.

Natural wedding & elopement photography covering the whole of the UK.

No cheese allowed.

“From meeting Babs to our pre-wedding shoot right up until our wedding day she has been absolutely amazing! Her style of natural shots and her laid back approach is what attracted us to her in the first place. We didn’t want a Wedding Photographer who did cheesy shots and made us pose in awkward positions. Babs’ style of work was perfect for us both!”

North Wales Wedding Photographer

My style is natural, relaxed and emotive and I love capturing real emotions & moments. I’m a bit of a free spirit and love documenting deep connections and the bond between two lovers. My star sign is Pisces and so I’d say some of my key strengths are that I’m highly empathetic, intuitive, artistic and emotive.

Snowdonia Wedding Photographer for laid back couples

I’m based not far from Snowdonia in North Wales and totally love everything this charmingly rugged country has to offer. We try to get away as often as we can to explore the beautiful coastlines or scenic mountains Snowdonia and North Wales have to offer. There are so many stunningly beautiful wedding venues it is difficult to pick favourites! From gorgeous castles deeply steeped in history to glorious country houses on Anglesey, wild camping spots in Snowdonia, campsites, wedding venues by the sea and at the base of glorious mountains, we have it all!

Anglesey Wedding Photographer

Anglesey has got to be one of my favourite spots for an impromptu overnight stay in the camper. It’s only a 40-minute drive away from where we live but it always feels like going on a proper mini adventure. From admiring Caernarfon Castle at night to exploring the coastal path with our four furries all day long, I can’t think of many better ways to spend a couple of days with my family.

Love Cheshire!  

I’m based not far from the Cheshire border; the views from Beeston Castle are simply glorious! I love wedding venues that are rustic, unconventional, DIY, a little quirky and also super scenic and Cheshire pretty much has it all – beautiful marquee wedding venues, rustic barn venues and glorious farm wedding venues.

Natural. Emotive. Unposed.

That’s how my wedding photography rolls. I use a lot of natural light as it’s the best light you can get. I am inspired by what’s most commonly known as documentary or journalistic wedding photography but I do love to shoot some beautiful portraits, too. Most couples that love my style are super laid-back and don’t want to be bossed about on their wedding day. They don’t sweat the small stuff but want to remember their day as it unfolds rather than staging it.

Story Telling Wedding Photographer

There are many things I absolutely love about wedding photography, one of them is how a picture (or a series of them) can tell a story. A picture can convey emotion like words sometimes can’t. I don’t think I will ever tire of watching a couple in love exchanging their vows and what could be better than listening to them declaring their love for one another.
