Wedding Packages – Summary
Gwaenynog is a rustic wedding venue unlike many places licensed for weddings – think straw bales and festival vibes, with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, with the space to bring all your friends and family – and to create a whole heap of great memories. We have several very different options for your wedding; all unique to this farm location with quirkiness inbuilt for you to adapt even further using your imagination. We’re very flexible and have loads of options to help make your day more personal. We’re licensed for just 12 events per year, so we’re exclusive, unique and special!! This is an Assisted DIY venue to offer cost savings (or ask us for ‘all inclusive’ options if preferred).
You are free to choose your own style of furniture if preferred, and for our 2 or 3 night packages in the Wedding Barn, you may also organise your own catering, and wine/fizz with your reception meal (all other drinks will be provided from our onsite bars on the Wedding day). For the ‘Single Day/Night’ weddings, and all of the smaller wedding packages (in the Dutch Barn / B&B), we would expect to provide ALL of the catering and drinks on the day, but we offer very competitive prices at very favourable discounted rates.
We offer different packages to suit any wedding size, and type of ceremony in whichever season you prefer. We can also tailor packages to suit yourself, but we’ve put together some guide prices for the standard packages if these would suit you best; whether it’s for just one day, or a whole weekend. Further details can be accessed from ‘links’ in each section, including the option to hold an outdoor ceremony with all of your guests (Mountain View or Woodland Glade). Additional glamping accommodation is also available for an extra cost.
“The Wedding Barn” Weddings: (50-280 guests OR max 400 incl Marquee Annex)
Festival Weekend Weddings (Medium/Large) £4600
This is the most popular package (2 days & nights): Max 250, or 280 guests if the ceremony is offsite. (We can extend capacity to 400 guests with a marquee annex). For a full festival vibe, this is the one for you. You get exclusive use of all facilities – from Friday midday to Sunday midday. This price includes all 4 B&B Rooms and the full campsite, with maximum flexibility to choose your own caterer and provide your own wine with the wedding breakfast meal.
Single Day/Evening Weddings (Medium/Large) £2400 – £3850
This is primarily geared to locals where many guests wouldn’t need on-site accommodation. The lower price (£2400) offers a Day/Eve event within “The Wedding Barn” only; with the option to book other facilities like the Farmhouse Garden for welcome drinks & photographs. It includes 1-night in the 4 B&B rooms but doesn’t include the Campsite, Dutch Barn or other facilities like the games field etc. Additional facilities & nights can be booked individually; including camping (campsite exclusivity £150-£400).
The higher price (£3850) offers a ‘Full Venue’ 1day/night option – for a one-day festival vibe, this package is ideal. You get exclusive use of all facilities (midday-midday). These one-day packages also allow Sunday ‘only’ weddings (10% discount), but we would expect to provide all the catering and drinks on the day – all offered at very favourable rates to provide you with a great value ‘single day’ package.
“Farmhouse” & “Dutch Barn” Weddings
Intimate/Small Weekend Weddings (<20 / 60 guests) £1100/£1600
We can also offer the “Farmhouse” or “The Dutch Barn” as an alternative for your ceremony & reception – up to either 20 or 60 guests respectively. This package includes accommodation in the 4 B&B rooms only. Camping can be booked on an individual basis as required.
Intimate/Small Single Day Event (<20 / 60 guests) £700/£1000
Same as above for locally based couples where on-site accommodation isn’t needed by the majority of guests.
Have a small legal ceremony offsite/indoors at Gwaenynog followed by an outdoor ceremony with all of your guests. These ceremonies can be combined with any of the packages above (A small added cost applies to set up the outdoor ceremony area including straw bale seating etc as required). We can then adapt these fabulous rustic settings to suit your needs. More information can be found on the Details of Facilities page.
