Bespoke Regular Tariff – tailor made weddings
________________________________________

It is generally better value for Brides to opt for a Weekend or Weekday Wedding Package. The Wedding Packages have a lower Wedding Meal and Buffet tariff, and qualify for reduced venue hire above certain numbers. Under the Bespoke Regular Tariff you do not have to meet the terms and conditions of the wedding packages, and you can choose to upgrade the buffet or wedding breakfast menu options or hire individual rooms etc.


__________


Benefits

__________


Superior a la carte three course wedding breakfast
Superior buffet options

Your choice of function rooms and ceremony room
More flexibility - paying venue hire removes overnight guest requirement under the Packages

You can have a buffet only wedding

Option of a 'Ceremony Only' Wedding at just £250




Given the savings on our wedding packages,

the Regular Tariff is only for weddings that do not qualify for any wedding package


NB: There is a 25% reduction Sunday to Thursday in venue hire rates other than for the Breakfast Room.

Church Weddings
_________________

If you are marrying in a church, consider our Regular Tariff as you would not require the Opera House - this ceremony room is included in our Wedding Packages.

Or consider an evening only reception. Remember that most churches tend to be further away from the Castle so you may require an 'evening only' / buffet only wedding reception to allow time for guests to get from the Church to the Castle. See our Special Wedding Evening Entertainment Package for an Evening Wedding Party option.

We do tend to find most Brides considering a church wedding end up being obliged to select a wedding venue closer to the church. This is because you cannot really 'pick your own church', local to the castle. Generally you will only be permitted to marry in your local church, where you worship regularly. We tell you this so you do not waste your time visiting us if we are too far away from your local church.

Before considering a wedding reception at the castle in combination with a church wedding, try out RAC route finder for distances / travel times from your church to the Castle (our post code is SA9 1GL).

NB: Churches are becoming more flexible, so you may find you can get married in a church closer to the castle after all, as opposed to being required to select one near to where you live. This is uncommon, though.

So ask yourself, will a church wedding work - distance wise - with your wedding reception being held at Craig y Nos Castle?

Table Wine & Toasting Champagne Drinks Package
_____________________________________________


We recommend 20 bottles for 50 guests or if more guests, we allow 1 bottle of table wine per 2.5 guests. Table Wine is currently £18.40/ bottle. A table of ten would therefore need 4 bottles of house wine, typically two of red and two of white. This means Table Wine works out at £7.36 a guest.

We also recommend 2-3 bottles Sparkling Wine, Prosecco or Veuve, per table for toasts, depending on the numbers of guests at each table. Sparkling Wine is £21.75/ bottle.  There are 6 glasses per bottle and you need up to two glasses per guest for the toasts, which makes two bottles per table of 6-7 or 3 bottles per table of 9-10. Sparking Wine therefore works out at £7.25 a guest.

On the Bespoke Regular Tariff we will offer you a Wine and Toasting Drinks Package at the above combined cost per guest of: £14.61

Note if you have less than ten guests on some tables, the distribution of house wine would be altered from 4 per table to, say, 3 per table, to provide no more than 20 bottles of table wine for 50 guests, or no more than one bottle per 2.5 guests.  This ratio applies to the Wine and Toasting Drinks Package, however if you wish to supply additional bottles of wine, these can be offered in addition, at the applicable cost for each extra bottle supplied.

For a 'Ceremony Only' Wedding with just a few family present, you may choose to hire just the Breakfast Room, only, for your Wedding Ceremony. This means you can get married at the Castle for just £250!  

Or you may choose to hire the Summer House and Lower Gardens for a Ceremony Only Wedding for £300.

Welcome Drinks can be added to the above for just £5.00 / guest.

Small Bookings and 'Ceremony only' weddings in the Breakfast Room may only be held mid-week so as not to clash with our Exclusive Use weekend weddings.

Summer House Ceremony Only Weddings may be held at weekends but you are restricted to the Lower Gardens and Summer House area with its Marquee.

For midweek Ceremony only Weddings you can benefit from all the Photo Opportunities the castle provides, inside and outside, enjoy the grounds, and the Country Park. You can even stay the night before your wedding or on the day of your wedding, or stay two nights and enjoy great mid-week B&B discounts, subject to B&B availability. Mid-week you can enjoy a leisurely evening meal with close friends and family selecting from the regular bar menu, and turn your wedding into a very informal, cosy, mini-mid-week break / honeymoon combined!

For Weekend Ceremony Only Weddings in the Summer House, you are only able to use the Lower Gardens and the Country Park, and of course our Summer House, for wedding photographs, as the castle hosts an exclusive use wedding on most weekends.

This is a really great idea for small weddings who really want to have a Ceremony only, with the minimum of fuss, and to make it a nice family break for themselves and their closest relatives without the full costs and all the organisation required in a big wedding. It's the Brecon Beacons equivalent of Gretna Green!  Quick, inexpensive, simple and easy.

We have a very special deal for married couples wishing to celebrate their wedding Anniversary. So if you are already married (maybe you are looking at this site as a relative / parent of someone who is considering getting married), why not have a peek at our Wedding Anniversary Package!  Surprise your partner by arranging an impromptu anniversary party without them even knowing!


When to opt for the Regular Tariff

1. Hire one function room instead of whole venue, for a smaller wedding
2. Hire no function rooms at all – just a table - for an intimate wedding of 10 to 15 people (mid-week Sun-Thurs only)
3. Church weddings where Ceremony room at castle not required - so you need only hire one room
4. Evening only receptions - choose a Buffet only option ( without a formal wedding breakfast).
5. See also the Evening Entertainment Package for Evening Wedding Receptions.

5. 'Ceremony Only' Weddings - from as low as £250 if you hire the Breakfast Room for your Ceremony - mid-week only

In most cases our wedding packages offer best value


If you have 50 wedding guests at your Wedding Breakfast, of whom 25 can stay overnight, choose the Midweek Wedding Package. You only need 25 overnight (guests pay for their own accommodation of course) compared to 50 B&B guests under the Special Wedding Package.  


Or consider the Last Minute Wedding Package which requires fewer overnight, for weddings before the date specified for the Package.


There is a 25% reduction Sunday to Thursday in venue hire rates other than for the Breakfast Room.
