“Dim ond siffrwd awel a thyner furmur nant” Iesu Yw, Gareth Owen
At the foothill of Snowdonia overlooking the tops of mount Snowdon, this was one enchanting outdoor wedding. The family house and gardens with it’s own stream running though it hosted the celebrations. An interesting new chapter for this North Wales wedding photographer.
Outdoor wedding with hale bales and a swing over a stream
I was super excited to be commissioned by my good friend Tony from Tony Fanning Photography to photograph this wedding. I’ve always admired North Wales landscapes. But the raw and magnificent beauty of Snowdonia really takes your breath away. We drove past Nant Gwrtheyrn and across the valley to Fay’s family home at the foothills of Snowdonia. I suppose if you live for 20 years in this setting – you can get used to it. However, my and Tony’s jaws dropped when we saw this place.
Overlooking the top of mount Snowdon, with a stream twinkling in sunlight, the stage was set with hale bales and a hand crafted wooden arch. I pick up on aromas and smells very easily and I loved the perfume of raw forest, freshly cut flowers and candles.

It turned that that the positive energy of nature and a loving calm of people who live there were wonderful. I suppose that’s one of the perks of being a North wales wedding photographer. Not only I work in a beautiful part of the world, but the people are super lovely too. To top it all off, they certainly know how to put up a wedding feast! The food was delicious and colourful, not just the greens!!
Do have a look at the lovely checkered jackets the groomsmen wore. They complimented the natural colours of the wedding setting beautifully. The lovely pale pinks and pale yellows in the bridal flowers reflected the colours of hale bales. In conclusion, it was the most harmonious wedding in all senses!
Thank you Tony, Faye and Jonathan for letting me be a small part of your wedding day!
