We continually check our competitor's prices and their Wedding Packages so you don't have to

Our research on 2022/ 2023 rates is uncovering some big increases in venue hire. Check you are not being overcharged.

On around 70 guests, many venues will charge £2,000 to £4,000 more for a summer 2023 wedding than Craig y Nos Castle. This simple fact can get overlooked in all the complicated information on different packages and seasonal rates you will collect from various venues.

There is a lot of data on other venues' pricing here. Some needs updating still.

  • The key take-away is how the 'total cost per head' is affected by 'venue hire'. If venue hire is high, say £2,000 to £4,000, this increases your 'total cost per head'. On 70 guests, venue hire of 3,000 will cost you an extra £42.86/guest, on £4,000, an extra £57.14/guest. This is how you can get from around £95 to £100/ guest for the Wedding Breakfast, Drinks Package and Evening Buffet, to a 'total cost' of over £150 a head - a huge difference if you have 70 guests or more.

  • Having fewer guests will increase 'cost per head'. If you have only 50 guests, a £3k venue hire will cost you £60 per guest, a £4,000 venue hire £80 a guest, giving rise to total cost per head of £160 to £180. There are a handful of venues that do not charge venue hire (as far as we could find) which reduces costs more in line with Craig y Nos Castle.
