Welsh Mountain Elopement Review:
Where do we even start?! If you are considering an adventure elopement, please do not look any further – BABS IS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER!
Despite previous plans for a large wedding, we decided to elope and it was certainly the best decision we have ever made! Forget the stress and worry of planning YOUR big day to accommodate and entertain guests at your expense – elope instead, you will not regret it!!!
We found Babs after researching elopement photographers in the UK and instantly I had to shoot her a message after checking out her website and Instagram. Within days, we had booked our elopement! After seeing pictures of Americans eloping to the mountains, we knew we wanted to do the same. We shared our ideas with Babs and she made our dream wedding come true!
We planned a break away to North Wales and on the 3rd day we got married in Snowdonia; Babs was one of our witnesses. After the registry office we followed Babs to a scenic location, with mountains surrounding us, a beautiful lake and the estuary in the far distance.
Despite the weather initially, we had a picnic as planned (thanks to Babs for bringing her gear!!), before venturing up the mountain. By this time, the weather passed revealing the most EPIC views. It was so much fun climbing a mountain in our wedding attire and the pictures are out of this world!!!
Our wedding day was full of love, smiles and laughter (the way it should be!) and Babs captured it perfectly. And so many friends and family have said that our photos are the best wedding photos that they have ever seen.
Babs , we can’t express in words how extremely happy and grateful we are for your capturing and making our wedding day so unforgettable!! The whole experience was euphoric!
