Weddings > Our Tariffs

Bespoke Regular Tariff – tailor made weddings

The Regular Wedding Tariff has not been increased for many years. The rates have remained the same since 2014. Despite the Regular Tariff being held at 2014 rates, it is still generally much 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 free exclusive use or no venue hire above certain numbers. Under the Bespoke Tariff you can choose to upgrade the buffet or wedding breakfast menu options or hire individual rooms etc.




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 (£30/head)

Option of a 'Ceremony Only' Wedding at just £200

With the savings on our wedding packages, you might well ask, "who'd want to go on the Regular Tariff?"

Church Weddings

If you are marrying in a church, you could consider our Regular Tariff as you would not require the Opera House - this ceremony room is included in our Wedding Packages. Also you might find you only want an evening reception.

If you are considering a church wedding, remember that most churches tend to be further away from the Castle. This means 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.

However we find most Brides considering a church wedding will have to select a wedding venue closer to the church. The reason for this is that you cannot really 'pick your own church' - i.e. one local to the castle - to marry in. Generally you can only marry in your local church, one in which you worship regularly. It is only fair to tell you this so you do not waste your time visiting us if we are too far away from your local church.

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

The Function Rooms - it is optional as to which rooms you hire


Theatre Hire - hire this if you are marrying at the castle


Patti Bar, music room, billiard room - hire for evening only receptions


Nicolini room hire - Option to add in with function room or Conservatory


Breakfast room hire - Option to add in with Conservatory


Conservatory - used as the main daytime room and wedding banquet room

Small Intimate Weddings

For a small wedding you only need to hire the Conservatory for the day and evening. When hiring just ONE room, regular tariff may be best for you.

Ceremony Only Weddings

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 £200!  

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.

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 30/04/2018.

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

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 (£30/head if no wedding breakfast).
5. See also the Evening Entertainment Package for Evening Wedding Receptions.

5. 'Ceremony Only' Weddings - from as low as £200 if you hire the Breakfast Room for your Ceremony - mid-week only
