Festival Wedding Weekend (Medium/Large)
“The Wedding Barn” FULL Venue (50-280 guests): 2 Day Booking inc. accommodation = from £5400
NB: Package cost depends on the size of wedding as follows: £5400 applies to weddings with 50 guests; then add £10 for each additional guest. i.e. 100 guests = £5,900; 120guests = £6,100 etc.
The majority of weddings hosted in this barn have been for approx 100-120 guests although up to 250 can be hosted when the ceremony area is part of the barn ‘Set Up’ (or 280 if the ceremony is held offsite/outdoors). For smaller weddings our B&B and Dutch barn venues can cater for events from 10 – 55 guests. This ‘Full Venue’ assisted DIY package is the most frequently chosen event spread over 2 days/nights – or add another night for £900. (Bank Holidays: at least 3 nights must be booked as a condition of hire; this allows a Sunday wedding option). There is an option to host a small legal ceremony in the Dutch Barn and then hold an outdoor ceremony with all of your guests (see: Mountain View or Woodland Glade). There’s a small added cost to set up a second ceremony area – using either the Dutch Barn or the outdoor ceremony options with straw bale seating etc as required.
For a full festival vibe, this “Assisted DIY” weekend package is ideal. You get exclusive use of all facilities in Gwaenynog – from Friday midday to Sunday midday with the flexibility to organise your own pre/post event BBQ and drinks (on Fri/Sun) if you wish; then on the wedding day also choose your own caterer and provide your own wine with the wedding breakfast meal. This price includes all 4 B&B Rooms and the campsite accommodation. Additional glamping accommodation is also available at extra cost. For larger weddings >200guests, the price doesn’t include additional toilets or the marquee annex. (for additional costs see: ‘Alternative Options’ Section below).
