Snowdonia (Eryri) Elopement Planning and PhotographyPlanning guides and free resources for your adventure wedding experience in glorious Wales
Considering a super relaxed and totally stress-free elopement in Wales?
Let’s plan you a beautiful & intentional wedding day here.
“Honestly couldn’t recommend this lovely woman more!”
“If you love the outdoors, want a truly special and tailored wedding day which doesn’t feel impacted or lead by staged photos then Babs is absolutely for you.”
As soon as I found Babs on instagram, I knew that she had to be a part of our day. The natural, candid, genuine moments she has captured throughout our day are memories I will cherish forever. The communication I had with Babs on the run up was excellent, she took exactly the vibe we wanted of a small wedding and then an adventure with our guests afterwards and helped us tailor our day to exactly that. Even with a last minute change the day before due to us slightly over estimating our adventure location, she was calm and collected and managed to bring this stress head back down to earth.
Her presence and personality on the day was perfect. She wasn’t pushy, she didn’t make everyone pose – everything was natural and candid, just as we wanted it to be.
She was friendly and chatty with my friends and family – they couldn’t speak more highly of her and she’s often an extremely positive talking point of the success of our day. It wouldn’t have been the same without Babs and the moments she’s captured will live on forever will us.
Thank you for being a part of our day and making it so special!

It’s really easy to see why Snowdonia is the perfect choice for an intimate and romantic elopement in the UK
An elopement is basically an intimate wedding celebration that focuses on the only thing that really matters – the two of you exchanging vows and making a commitment to one another. Elopements are perfect for couples wanting to cut out the stress factors normally associated with detailed wedding planning, such as who to invite and boring seating plans because let’s face it – there are way better things to do with your time! No longer just for runaways, these days elopements are typically associated with couples being outside in nature and going on a beautiful adventure together.
Couples who elope to Snowdonia usually put more emphasis on having an experience rather than material things which is why Wales is perfect for those wanting a mini adventure in an incredibly magical place! When you decide to elope, you no longer have to worry about traditions you might not agree with, instead, you can just concentrate on the things that bring you joy – such as looking at your beautiful elopement photographs whenever you want to!
