Hey there, I’m Babs.

Outdoorsy North Wales Wedding Photographer with a passion for scenic weddings in our beautiful Welsh landscapes & I’m also a UK Elopement Photographer for couples who’d like some help planning a small and intentional wedding day here in Wales.

Wales Wedding & UK Elopement Photographer | Babs Boardwell Photography

Wife to an absolute gem of a Welsh man who shares my love for the great outdoors, we live a pretty slow and simple life near the Clwydian Range with our 3 free-spirited Welsh collies who are always up for exploring new locations with me.

I work really well with  super laid-back and outdoorsy couples who don’t sweat the small stuff and value a once-in-a-lifetime relaxed wedding experience.

“Babs has an amazing way of being both a wonderful person to have involved and share in such a special moment with, yet also making you feel like she’s not even there!”

My style of wedding and elopement photography is very relaxed with a natural-looking and earthy vibe.

Want a wedding photographer you can lean on to help you have a super relaxed and adventurous wedding or elopement day here in Wales that leaves you feeling wholesome and joyous, 100% non-awkward, not stressed and with those epic wedding day photographs up on the mountains, on a beach (or both)?

Here for you!

Which once-in-a-lifetime event would you like me to capture for you?

My wedding & elopement photography style is natural & moment-driven and going on a mini adventure on your wedding day for a once-in-a-lifetime experience should definitely excite you!

I fully embrace the awesome and often temperamental Welsh weather, observe & document how you interact together rather than pose anyone and primarily use a lot of natural light – it’s the best light you can get to tell your story naturally! I’m inspired by raw feelings, the deep & unique connection between two people about to get married, nature and dramatic landscapes – I always go above & beyond for my couples to find the most spectacular backdrops for their bespoke wedding & elopement photography in North Wales. We’ll get all the shots you need to tell your wedding or elopement day story in pictures, but we’ll definitely also walk/hike/drive the extra mile to get you those EPIC memories and landscape shots, no matter what the weather.

Where do we even start?! If you are considering an adventure elopement or an adventurous wedding day, please do not look any further – BABS IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER!

We found Babs after researching elopement photographers in the UK and instantly I had to shoot her a message after checking out her website and Instagram. Within days, we had booked our elopement! After seeing pictures of Americans eloping to the mountains, we knew we wanted to do the same. We shared our ideas with Babs and she made our dream wedding come true!

We planned a break away to North Wales and on the 3rd day we got married in Snowdonia; Babs was one of our witnesses. After the registry office we followed Babs to a scenic location, with mountains surrounding us, a beautiful lake and the estuary in the far distance.

Despite the weather initially, we had a picnic as planned (thanks to Babs for bringing her gear!!), before venturing up the mountain. By this time, the weather passed revealing the most EPIC views. It was so much fun climbing a mountain in our wedding attire and the pictures are out of this world!!!

Our wedding day was full of love, smiles and laughter (the way it should be!) and Babs captured it perfectly. And so many friends and family have said that our photos are the best wedding photos that they have ever seen.

Babs , we can’t express in words how extremely happy and grateful we are for your capturing and making our wedding day so unforgettable!! The whole experience was euphoric!

Eloping or getting married in Wales will be the best thing you’ll ever do.
