Llyn Gwynant weddings

Snowdonia wedding adventures

for those who seek a beautiful wedding or elopement adventure in Snowdonia

Llyn Gwynant Barns is a beautiful and tranquil destination wedding location in Wales with awe-inspiring yet peaceful views across a dramatic mountain range. It’s the perfect location for relaxed couples hoping to find a wedding venue in Wales that combines rustic charm with plenty of scope for camping weddings.

Situated at the Llyn Gwynant campsite at the bottom of Snowdon in the spectacular Nant Gwynant Valley, this eco-friendly wedding venue in Wales is a nature lover’s paradise! Its proximity to Llyn Gwynant, a natural lake in the Snowdonia National Park in glorious North Wales, allows for dreamy wedding adventures and truly is the most perfect spot for epic wedding photography!

The campsite sits on 124 acres of lush vegetation making it the absolutely perfect spot for breathtaking weddings at Llyn Gwynant! The view towards Llyn Gwynant and Moel Hebog is one of the most photographed in Snowdonia and with a relaxed Wedding Photographer North Wales & UK Elopement Photographer by your side – the opportunities for beautiful wedding photography are endless!

As regular visitors to the campsite in our own camper, I count myself super lucky to have captured several beautiful Llyn Gwynant Weddings. And with Snowdon only a mere 3 km to the northwest, you can actually walk up to it directly from the campsite – perfect if you’re planning a surprise proposal on Snowdon! The campsite is low-key with flat grass pitches, allowing small campfires & is also dog friendly.
