Our venue allows you to organise a cost-effective event with the chance to have all your friends and family staying here in the B&B and Campsite or in nearby accommodation (on the night before, as well as on your wedding day) to create a truly great festival wedding. This also offers the chance to enjoy a relaxed ‘pre-event’ get together with your guests after they arrive on the night before your wedding day.
Most of our packages come with inclusive onsite B&B and Campsite accommodation, with other Glamping options also available at favourable rates. This works particularly well for our full venue weekend packages where weddings effectively take over the whole venue for 2 or 3 days, including the B&B and Campsite. You can then onward charge your guests for their onsite accommodation to reduce your own costs – if you choose. Wedding guests would normally need to book B&B/hotel accommodation anyway, and by using the camping option you/they are already saving on accommodation costs. You then get exclusive access to all our guest facilities which has worked extremely well for couples organising a ‘wedding festival’ weekend.
In addition, you’ll need to factor in the cost of the catering, DJ or band, plus possibly hiring in your preferred choice of tables and chairs (this is the part DIY aspect). As Gwaenynog provides the cash bar, we can discuss if you wanted to put money behind or have specific drinks available. We can also offer pre & post ceremony drinks and snacks on the lawn if required – that all goes with the planning discussion.
For our 2/3 night packages you may choose your own preferred catering suppliers, but we can also offer onsite catering options, and suggest local suppliers too. We’re very flexible – and that’s part of what makes Gwaenynog perfect for those who wish to design/DIY their own wedding. The other big advantage and potential cost saving with our venue is that you can bring your own drinks for a BBQ etc the day before your wedding. You can also supply your own wine & fizz for the Wedding Reception meal in the Wedding Barn – we don’t charge corkage for that. But we can also provide a quote for that and offer our cash bar on the Friday night too.
Hopefully we’ve covered most things you need to know on the various pages on this website – but just drop us an email and just ask if we haven’t covered something. We’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
