A same-sex wedding in one of the UK’s last remaining true wildernesses – what could be more romantic than a dreamy lesbian elopement wedding in Snowdonia, right!?
Faced with having to change their original wedding plans due to Covid, Carly & Paige decided they definitely wanted to do things their way. After booking a last-minute weekend getaway, we talked about their options for the nearest Registry Office in Wales and the couple put dreamy elopement photographs right on top of their wedding wish list. The brides are really creative so sourced most of their wedding items such as Paige’s dress and bouquet from Etsy. And only invited their closest family members to watch them exchange their very personal wedding vows in Gwynedd.
Same-sex elopement in Wales
Here’s what the couple had to say after their romantic lesbian elopement wedding in Snowdonia:
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 100000% recommend her, I now have amazing photos to cherish forever!
