North Wales Winter Pre-Wedding Photographer

North Wales Winter Pre-Wedding Photographer

Is there anything quite as exciting as being a North Wales winter pre-wedding photographer? Feast your eyes on this beautiful one! Max is originally from North Wales and Sam is from the US. At this moment in time, they are for sure the most exotic couple on my books! Not only do they live in Thailand (exotic score: pretty high!) but they also research venomous Cobras which is not only off the scale exotic but also pretty cool, right!? You can follow some of their snake rescues and research over on Max’s Facebook page.

Max & Sam’s pre-wedding mini adventure with their North Wales Wedding Photographer

For their pre-wedding mini-adventure, I schlepped them to some of my favourite spots right here in my own neighbourhood. I always enjoy being a North Wales Winter Pre-Wedding Photographer! And even though it was super windy & freezing cold on the day we met for their pre-wedding shoot, they were both super relaxed if not a tad cold and windblown at times. They are getting married at the stunning Llyn Gwynant campsite in Snowdonia this summer. Can’t wait to be their Snowdonia Wedding Photographer!

To say I’m excited about returning to one of my absolute favourite North Wales Wedding venues is definitely a bit of an understatement. Especially as I get to shoot there not once but twice this year. Happy days.

Some of Sam’s family will be travelling to North Wales from America. I’m not sure if they’ve ever been to North Wales before. Yet I really can’t think of a more breathtaking spot to watch Sam & Max get married and I’m super excited to meet them all! I’m pretty sure North Wales and its romantic wilderness, charming ruggedness, and dramatic and beautiful moodiness will not disappoint!

And hey guys – if any of Sam’s relatives are reading this right now – head on over to one of my previous blog posts in which I wrote about some Welsh Wedding Traditions which you may find interesting.

North Wales Wedding Photography

Back to Max & Sam. I love shooting engagement shoots in all seasons but a winter engagement shoot always brings out some extra moodiness. Respect for not only letting me put you in windy, freezing spots without whining once. But also for incorporating an impromptu outfit change involving taking most of your clothes off in the middle of freezing nowhere! And battling with a sub-standard cheap lighter in storm-like conditions to get those sparklers going. I can’t wait to see you again and share your wedding day with you!

Anyone else currently looking for heartfelt wedding photography and/or a North Wales Wedding Photographer – get in touch, would love to help! xoxo

Natural Wedding Photographer

I’m a Cheshire, North Wales, Anglesey, Snowdonia & Shropshire Wedding Photographer based near Llangollen in North Wales. My style is natural, relaxed and emotive. Most couples that book me are laid-back and want their wedding photographer to fit in with their exciting plans without being bossy. If you like my work and would like to discuss how I can help with your wedding photographer you can contact me here.

North Wales is a region within Wales in the UK and one of its most popular holiday destinations. From beautiful coastlines on Anglesey to the charming ruggedness of Snowdonia, North Wales has a lot to offer. And not just for camping enthusiasts either! One of its most beautiful little towns is Llangollen along the beautiful river Dee.

Llangollen has a variety of cafés, bars, hotels, restaurants, guest houses, B&Bs, cottages and campsites to suit every budget. Of course, I would say that as we live not far from it!

But don’t just take my word for it, come and check it out for yourself!

Getting married in North Wales

If you fancy getting married on a beach in North Wales you can! As long as it’s a licensed venue with a solid roof structure on the beach. North Wales is home to three of Wales’ five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty including the Lleyn Peninsula, the Clwydian Range and the Isle of Anglesey. And we all know how much I love Anglesey! It’s where we as a family have spent much time exploring the beautiful coastline in our camper.

Eloping in North Wales

If you’re looking for a super romantic wedding option then an elopement could be the one for you. Eloping is becoming increasingly popular and there are various options available. Head over to the pretty little town of Llandudno for a super simple but scenic option for just the two of you.

Take a little stroll to the beach for some beautiful portraits on the pier. Or take a trip to the Great Orme and chase those gorgeous views across the beautiful Snowdonia range. Llandudno also has the longest artificial ski slope in Britain which is almost 300m long.

If you prefer a real hidden gem then look no further than the gorgeous Chateau Rhianfa. It’s a fairytale-like castle that really enables you to get away from it all in the most romantic setting. And do get in touch if you’re looking for a natural and relaxed North Wales Wedding Photographer to capture it all!

Some trivia facts

You’ll find the smallest chapel in Britain in Rhos-on-Sea. St Trillo’s only has seating for six people. I’m not sure if you can still get married there but it sure would be super romantic!

The Swallow Falls at Betws-y-Coed is the most visited waterfall in the UK. Betws-y-Coed is a spectacularly beautiful tourist destination with secluded lakes, fast flowing rivers and beautiful mountains to explore. And did you know that Queen Elizabeth’s wedding ring is crafted from a nugget of pure Welsh gold from the Clogau St David’s gold mine near Dolgellau? Yep.

Dolgellau itself is also popular with tourists who enjoy a spot of hiking and climbing and often use it as a base for climbing Cadair Idris.

If aircraft take your fancy then how about a trip to Mach Loop? We once took a trip and waited for hours until we realised we’d picked the wrong date for a fly by. Whoops! And of course, let’s not forget that North Wales is famous for having the longest place name in Europe which is Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. Don’t worry. I couldn’t remember how to spell it either!

And last but not least. It probably doesn’t come as a massive shock that the sheep/human ratio in Wales is 3:1….

Llangollen Sunset Pre-Wedding Photographer  We've had so many unbelievably stunning sunsets this year? Made being a Llangollen Sunset Pre-Wedding Photographer an absolute pleasure! For this shoot, I took a very nervous looking Aaron & Alicia to one of my favourite dog walking spots.  We met at a pub and they followed me up the hill to my secret location. They didn't need to worry; we kicked off the shoot with some simple and relaxed walking in some gorgeous looking heather. We then took it up a notch and I took them to my favourite tree for some minor posing against the pretty red berries.  It really took no time at all for them both t ...
