Venue Hire applies if SWEEP
taken as a stand-alone
unless 20 guests stay overnight on a B&B  basis

You pay the DJ direct for his services separately and additionally. DJ Rates may vary, but currently start from £600 (2022) plus £50 booking fee for the DJ's services described on this page. The below rates apply if you are not having a full wedding package and want an 'evening only' arrangement.

If taking a full wedding package the standard finger buffet is included; Hot Fork Buffet One or Two can be added at a discounted rate as shown on the Buffet page.

(A) Fridays & Saturdays: Evening Hot Fork Buffet Two £30.00 per head (min 100) with venue hire on main function room & Bar (£1,050) - capacity 150 - or no venue hire when you guarantee 20 guests or more to stay overnight at weekend B&B rates.

Guests will pay £150/night B&B for 2 in an en-suite, which drops to 50% of regular midweek B&B tariff (£70) for 2 on 2nd night if one of the two nights falls on a weekday (Sun to Thurs). NB: guests pay for their own accommodation.

(B) Sunday to Thursdays: Evening Hot Fork Buffet Two £30 per head (min 100) with venue hire on the main function room & Bar (£800) or no venue hire when you guarantee 20 guests or more to stay overnight at midweek B&B rates.

Guests mid-week will pay £150/night B&B for 2 in an en-suite, which drops to 50% of regular midweek tariff B&B (£70) for 2 on 2nd night provided both nights are on a weekday Sunday to Thursday. NB: guests pay for their own accommodation.

  • When taking SWEEP as a stand-alone Evening Only Reception, your booking is not 'Exclusive' as we may host another event in the Conservatory, plus there'll be other B&B guests using the lounges and Conservatory.

  • There's no venue hire if you guarantee 20 guests to stay overnight.

  • If fewer stay, then you simply make a top-up payment for the difference.

  • For free exclusive use of the function room and bar, it's worth subsidising your guests' B&B, to encourage more to stay - and party - for longer.

  • Venue hire at Regular tariff still applies to any extra rooms hired - however you shouldn't need extra rooms for an 'evening only' function.  

This is an evening only package; it does not include the ceremony, the wedding breakfast, the welcome drinks, or all the rooms, just the function room for an evening hot fork buffet. You can hire extra rooms such as the ceremony room if required, separately. You will also need to hire the DJ separately, as the price of £30 / head is just for the evening buffet.

Wedding insurance and Guest Protection

We would prefer if you had wedding insurance in place to protect yourself, in case of any claims arising from damage caused by your guests to our equipment through drunken behaviour. This insurance also protects you in case of unscrupulous suppliers cancelling on you or going out of business. Plus it covers you if you need to cancel for some unforeseen reason.

Dry Ice exclusions & Videography by DJ

Dry Ice: This is a combination of water vapour and carbon dioxide gas. It’s very safe as long as you don’t lie on the floor for the full duration without access to the air above, as it has very little oxygen. We have used it very safely since 2015. However the machine uses scalding hot water which is dangerous and the ice is so cold it will burn to the touch, so we ask that you or your guests and especially their children, stay away from the DJ setup area whilst it is in use. There will always be a member of staff there whilst in use to prevent access. The effect lasts around 3-5 minutes so enough for most first dance songs. The effect can be dissipated by children running through it or by fast dancing, especially with a big dress, as it acts as a fan, so please be aware of that.

Also venues with Air Condition can blow away the effect if it is directed at the dance floor.

We order the ice to arrive either on the day or the day before, from a company in England. As we cannot guarantee their delivery or their delivery company, we cannot compensate you if it doesn’t turn up if the dry ice is part of a free service. (We actually pay around £100 for the ice in some special packages for certain venues)


Booking and Paying for the DJ

(1) You will enter into a direct contract with your selected DJ, not the Castle, for the Evening Disco he provides.

(2) The fee for the DJ is paid directly by you to the DJ in two instalments.

(3) To book the DJ you will need to pay him a £200 deposit.

(4) The final balance is due to the DJ 30 days prior to your Wedding.

(5) You pay the Castle for the Buffet at the appropriate rate for the chosen Buffet.

(6) You need 100 guests for  a 'stand-alone' evening only castle buffet.

Photo and Video media (SWEEP Package Clients Only)

As part of the SWEEP Package service we are currently including £250 worth of free Videography sent via post on a 16gb usb stick with any other photos we may take on the night. Our video service includes:

Full video of the first dance – the first dance, with you dancing on clouds, looks absolutely superb on video

Video of the last dance

Selected videos of guest dances throughout the evening

Videography of the Evening Party and Disco is included as a free extra service, with SWEEP, however it is not contractually guaranteed that the video will come out as you might want, or indeed, at all. We have only had once incidence of an SD card failing, but this can happen. We would suggest hiring a professional to video your whole wedding.

Our complimentary videography service is offered on the understanding that:

(A) The service is not guaranteed.

(B) We offer no assurance as to quality, focus, or angle of photos, however we have successfully videoed hundreds of first dances!

(C) We do not edit or cut the resulting footage – we merely hand you the raw footage to do with as you please.

(D) While the copyright is ours, we hereby give you permission to use, copy, or share the videos, online and with friends etc – all that we ask is that you credit 'Pure Weddings DJs' with all our videos (and we would be very grateful for any links to the videos on our website (provide link to home page or video wall etc)

(E) In return for us offering this free service (worth at least £250, and giving you abiding memories of the evening party), you hereby grant us your permission to add (at our discretion) footage of the first dance on the video wall on our Facebook page and, on occasion, on the websites of Pure DJ and Craig y Nos Castle. Please let us know if this is a problem for you. See the video wall of past Wedding Couples' first dances here for an idea of how your First Dance might look.https://www.facebook.com/PureWeddingDJs/videos/1646729822078916/

If we use the video of your first dance or any guest dances, we will send you a link to the FIRST usage only, so you can inspect the footage and let us know if you disapprove. Notwithstanding para (E) above, should you disapprove for any reason we will remove the footage and not use it.

We do ask for the reasonable co-operation of any primary photographer you may employ. You may decide that you do not need a photographer in the evening, as we will provide a free video service. However as this service is not guaranteed, as above, so you may prefer to employ a primary photographer for the evening as well as the day. Should a primary photographer be employed, it would be helpful if we can work together to get the best shots for you.

Typically we for our part will not get in the way of a primary photographer. We will be standing in one corner of the room and shoot the video from this one corner, without moving around the room or making our presence felt. We ask that any photographer - or indeed any wedding supplier, caterer etc. - who will need to move around the room to get the best still-shots, stay as much as possible out of our videographer's sight-line. This is so we can obtain for you a clear image of your first Dance, as we do not offer an editing service to edit out obstructions later.

In the unlikely event that the Videography service we offer is not able to be offered, due to sickness or unavoidable absence of the videographer, no compensation shall be due to you from Pure Wedding DJs, as this is a free extra service provided as a complimentary gift to you for using our DJ service, and as it is being not charged for, it is non-contractual.

Wedding Venue South Wales Craig y Nos Castle Evening Disco
Wedding Venue South Wales Craig y Nos Castle Evening Disco
Breakfast Music and Microphones for speeches (If booked)

This consists of a one speaker sound system and DJ decks and wired shure microphone. I will play easy listening, folk, ambient, classical, soft rock, jazz, chill out, blues, etc, or anything you would like to add. I can also help with your grand entrance into the room with a special song, and announce it if the duty manager is unable to. We will need to finish this service at around 6.30pm to move the equipment for the evening disco if it’s in another room.

Additional Terms and Conditions

The agreement of the DJ to perform is subject to proven detention by road traffic accidents, riots, strikes, floods, snow, road closures, epidemics, acts of God, or any other legitimate conditions beyond their control. If such circumstances arise, all reasonable efforts will be made By Pure Wedding DJ's to find replacement entertainment at the agreed upon fees.

If you would like to have a later finish time, this must be agreed and paid for a week before the wedding, if we are free to do so. For all day weddings, this will not be possible, as we will have started at 9am in the morning. This is charged at £100 per hour.

It is understood that if this is a "Rain or Shine" event, Pure Wedding DJ's compensation is in no way affected by inclement weather. For outdoor performances, the purchaser shall provide overhead shelter for setup area. The DJ reserves the right, in good faith, to stop or cancel the performance should the weather pose a potential danger to him, the equipment, or audience. Every effort will be made to continue the performance. However, safety is paramount in all decisions. The DJ's compensation will not be affected by such cancellation.

In the event of circumstances deemed to present a threat or implied threat of injury or harm to Pure Wedding DJ's staff or any equipment in Pure Wedding DJ's possession, Pure Wedding DJ's reserves the right to cease the performance. If the Purchaser is able to resolve the threatening situation in a reasonable amount of time (maximum of 15 minutes) Pure Wedding DJ's may resume performance in accordance with the original terms of this agreement. In order to prevent equipment damage or liability arising from accidental injury to any individual attending this performance, Pure Wedding DJ's reserves the right to deny any guest access to the sound system, music recordings, or other equipment. If actual physical assault is committed against any staff member we will cease our performance.

The purchaser shall provide Pure Wedding DJ's with safe, flat, dry and appropriate working conditions. This includes a 12 ft wide x 7 ft deep area for setup, to fit a 6ft wide DJ Booth, speakers and lighting stands, which are 8ft high. Pure Wedding DJ's requires a minimum of two 240v electrical circuit outlets from a reliable power source within 20 feet (along the wall) of the set-up area. This circuit must be free of all other connected loads. Any delay in the performance or damage to the DJ's equipment due to improper power is the responsibility of the venue. Two circuits are preferred, where possible. The Purchaser shall provide crowd control if warranted.
We will need extra sockets if you require the dry ice service, or uplighting.

If you have hired a Marquee or Tipi, please ensure the electricity supply is adequate. (Usually a heavy duty generator will be required) Please speak to the hire company about this important matter, as using electric from a domestic house will not be sufficient if there are many services plugged into it.


A written event/music planner or music request list (word or text file) must be received from the Purchaser and forwarded to Pure Wedding DJ's at least one month prior to the date of the engagement for it to be included in Pure Wedding DJ's programming guidelines. Please keep it to a maximum of 30 songs. With or without the aid of an event/music planner or music request list, Pure Wedding DJ's shall attempt to play Purchaser's and Purchaser's guests music requests, but shall not be held responsible if certain selections are unavailable. Please make sure you state the correct artist’s name, song title and relevant remixes in the play list.

Please make us aware if certain songs or styles are forbidden, and if guests requests are allowed.

First Dance Dancing on Clouds at Wedding Venue South Wales Craig y Nos Castle
Pure Wedding DJ Booth - Wedding Venue South Wales Craig y Nos Castle

I would like to point out the best way to get the most from myself as a DJ, is to let me read the room, and play what the majority like. My main aim is to keep the majority dancing. So just giving me a list of genres, and a small list of must plays, this will hopefully ensure a great party. Please note, I try not to play cheesy overplayed songs, only if you are happy with them being played, and if other genres are not working. Some other tips for keeping the dance floor full are having the temperature as low as possible. So Air Con, Fans, or air circulation by having windows and doors open really helps in the summertime. Also cool clothes and soft footwear is a great help.

This agreement guarantees that Pure Wedding DJ's will be ready to perform at the start time of the engagement. No guarantee is made as to Pure Wedding DJ's time of arrival; however, Pure Wedding DJ's request’s that they be permitted at least 1 hour for the small package, and 2 hours for the larger packages, before the engagement and 1 hour after the engagement for load in, setup, takedown & load out. We do not stay on for free to make up for lost time if your day overruns.
