What could be more romantic than a *Just Us* lesbian wedding ceremony or a meaningful same-sex elopement in a breathtakingly beautiful spot? Thinking of extending your same-sex wedding day into a full-on fun weekend in Wales? Simply kick off your LGBTQ+ wedding with a romantic picnic on a beach or hike up a Snowdonia mountain on a Friday afternoon, then spend the rest of the weekend making memories. Book one of these 10 perfect love shacks in North Wales you’ll never want to leave and kick off your unforgettably romantic wedding getaway with a couple of glasses of champagne in the outdoor hot tub on arrival. Simply pack a blanket and bring a few nibbles or sandwiches if you fancy a casual picnic on your lesbian elopement wedding day in Wales. Or (safely!) cook a meal on a gas stove if you’re feeling a little more adventurous. Champagne optional!

Location is key! For epic backdrops in your same-sex wedding or elopement photography let me help you find beautifully secluded spots in Snowdonia with breathtaking views. As much as Snowdon was the perfect choice for Lou & Anna’s surprise proposal – things can get rather crowded on Britain’s busiest mountain on a sunny summer’s day. And there are so many other remote locations on offer! If a secluded little glacier lake takes your fancy – I’m happy to guide you to some with relatively easy access that haven’t been discovered by the masses yet. It’s definitely worth doing some research if you want to plan a super romantic same-sex wedding or elopement in Wales that’s totally you!

LGBT friendly wedding venues uk

Maybe you already have a gay or lesbian-friendly wedding venue in mind? If you fancy getting married in Wales – on the outskirts of a super charming little Welsh town you’ll find Tower Hill Barns, one of the Top 10 Barn Wedding Venues in the UK and set in the most charming surroundings not far from Llangollen.

It’s one of my favourite wedding venues in North Wales and is licensed for same-sex marriages, civil partnership ceremonies, and celebrant led or humanist ceremonies.

Their super romantic indoor ceremony room is atmospheric and perfect for a lesbian wedding in Wales. If you have your heart set on an outdoor same-sex wedding ceremony – an oak-framed gazebo underneath a historic Railway Bridge awaits!

Same-sex wedding planning

Are you in the midst of same-sex wedding planning? You may be wondering which (if any!) traditional elements to keep for your perfect LGBT wedding and how to make your same-sex wedding in the UK oh so you.

Don’t feel you must have a conventional best man/maid of honour/walking down the aisle set-up if you don’t want to! Refer to yourself as Broom or Gride if you’re not keen on the more traditional terms ;)  Your friends and family love you and would not want you to do things just because deep down you feel you have to. So do you! 

what to wear to your queer wedding

Anything goes! Two suits. Sparkly Dinner Jackets. Two white wedding dresses. Bespoke tuxedos for lesbians. Or a groom in a kilt. Some like to dress up, some don’t. If you’re planning on going to a super scenic location after your same-sex wedding ceremony for once-in-a-lifetime photographs you might want to opt for a dramatic big wedding dress. Or go on a bit of hike in something a little more practical which will look equally stunning!
