for those who seek a beautiful wedding or elopement adventure in Snowdonia
It’s a beautiful and tranquil destination with dramatic yet peaceful Welsh mountain views. You will find the Llyn Gwynant campsite below Snowdon in this spectacular valley. It’s a nature lover’s paradise in the very heart of Snowdonia with the lake having formed by glacial action. The campsite sits on 124 acres of lush vegetation making it the absolutely perfect spot for breathtaking weddings in Llyn Gwynant! The view towards Llyn Gwynant and Moel Hebog is one of the most photographed in Snowdonia and offers a natural North Wales Wedding & Elopement Photographer like myself endless opportunities for taking couples on a mini wedding adventure!
We regularly visit the campsite in our camper and I have been lucky enough to capture several beautiful Llyn Gwynant Weddings. With Snowdon only a mere 3 km to the northwest, you can actually walk up to it directly from the campsite – something I’m yet to convince a couple to do!
The campsite is a popular place for canoeing and kayaking with easy access from the A498 and only a short drive from Beddgelert, a lovely village in Snowdonia. Its claim to fame is that it was used as a filming location for the Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life‘ in 2003.
If you’re planning on turning your wedding into a bit of a weekend adventure for all of your friends & family to fully enjoy, you can! The campsite is an ideal base for walking, swimming and other adventure activities, and during summer kayaks, canoes and stand up paddle boards (SUPs) can be hired from the site. Always fun to photograph brides in kayaks when shooting Llyn Gwynant weddings!
There are a number of stunning Air BnB’s and country houses in the area if camping doesn’t flick your switch. But if you do decide to have your wedding at this stunning Welsh Wedding Venue – I promise it’ll be nothing short of romantic, unforgettable & breathtakingly beautiful!
Here are some of my favourite images from the Llyn Gwynant Weddings I have photographed. Get in touch if you’d like me to document your relaxed & beautiful day there, I absolutely adore this perfect Welsh spot!
