oh, hi there!

so nice to meet'ya!


I’m Babs

Babs Boardwell North Wales Wedding Photographer with 2 of her Border ColliesI’m a North Wales Wedding & Elopement Photographer and offer adventurous wedding, elopement & couple photography in North Wales and across the whole of the UK.

I’m OBSESSED with finding the most spectacular backdrops for your beautiful wedding photographs! Of course – I happily work with anyone but I work REALLY well with adventure-loving couples anywhere in England, Scotland & Wales.

My style of wedding photography is massively inspired by raw emotions, spontaneous adventures & just being in total awe of our gorgeous landscapes. Being outdoors in all kinds of weather. Road trips around the UK in our camper! Finding  perfect spots for watching the sunset over the sea in Anglesey!

We always make time for a freezing van life adventure and have woken up to frost on the windows in France, Snowdonia, The Lake District, Scotland and Cornwall. We found some breathtakingly beautiful wild spots along the way!

You could say I’m a bit of a free spirit. A lover of all things simple. I dig amazing vistas, a couple crazy in love & totally believe in soulmates & love at first sight. Glitz & glamour and anything fake and staged is definitely not my bag.

You hardly ever find me with at least one dog around me, often checking out new epic & scenic locations to take my couples to and chatting about the forecast and what’s for dinner that night.

LOVE a good cooking sess! My current food crush is everything Rebel Recipes (I’m only a part-time vegan though because….well, I guess I like things balanced).

My husband Rich is a member of our local Mountain Rescue Team and he’s also ex-military which is why it’s pretty important to me to run a discount scheme for all our superhero emergency services & military boys & girls. I guess I’m just trying to be a nice person giving back because giving back is definitely good for the soul. And soul is what it’s all about, right!?

Dog people – we’re gonna get on!

My wedding photography style is quite romantic and a tad arty. I use a lot of natural light – it’s the best light you can get! I’m inspired by nature and dramatic landscapes and go above & beyond for my couples to find them the most spectacular backdrops for their bespoke wedding & elopement photography in North Wales.

Are you super laid-back and pretty outdoorsy, don’t sweat the small stuff, and definitely want a wedding day to remember?

Well what can I say about Babs, I got in touch with Babs, back in the summer 2020 regarding a surprise proposal for my now fiancé and I. Babs scouted the perfect location in the middle of a Global Pandemic. The effort and professionalism shown was incredible and in December I had the best day of my life. She captured the moment so perfectly and we have the best pictures for life. Would highly recommend to anyone not just in Wales but the U.K. Looking forward to catching up at the wedding hopefully 😄

I am so glad that i chose Babs to photograph our elopement. I didn't know the area, or even where to start with registry offices etc. She gave me loads of advice and recommendations, and made all the planning a lot more stress free, she was flexible when we had to change dates and even got some photos back to us the same day (they were incredible). The actual photographing was not awkward, or weird, it felt so natural and Babs made us both feel so relaxed. She was so lovely, funny and i will definitely be booking her again in the future, even if it means travelling 3 hours! I would 10000% recommend her, i now have amazing photos to cherish for forever.

We can't recommend Babs highly enough. She was absolutely wonderful at photographing our wedding last month. She was great to communicate with and put everyone at ease immediately. No awkward posing! We had great fun and each smile was genuine. She was flexible and accommodating of our ever-changing wedding plans. We love every image and she even managed to make the compulsory face masks look stylish! Thank you so much.

Babs did a wonderful family photoshoot and made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. We absolutely love our pictures - they are so natural and really capture the day well. We brought along our dog too, who liked the attention from Babs! I would definitely recommend and look forward to a future session.

Booked Babs for our first shoot as a couple, and initial worries were how we would pose, and how comfortable we would feel. As soon as we got there our worries went out the window! Babs guided us through the whole process and made us feel at ease. All we had to do was be ourselves and she did the rest.
