Exclusive Use, all function rooms - Upgrade Offer - LMWP 80

Upgrade to Full Exclusive Use (free of any venue hire under this package) of all ground floor function rooms at any time by increasing to 80 guests at your wedding breakfast plus 80 guests having the evening buffet, with 40 of your guests staying overnight @ £75/guest B&B (guests pay for their own accommodation).

Last Minute Wedding Package 80 (LMWP 80) offers EXCLUSIVE USE of the ground floor function rooms (using the Conservatory for your Day room and the Function room for your Evening Room).

Exclusive use does not include all the accommodation which we may book to non-wedding guests once you have reserved/booked your contractual minimum. Therefore, if you wish to book in excess of the minimum number of rooms you need to either have those guests call to book or give our Reception their details - see 'accommodation reserving' below - so we can reserve accommodation above the minimum requirement.


Accommodation Reserving

NB: We only 'block out' 10 or 20 bedrooms (up to either 20 or 40 guests) under the Last Minute Wedding Package. The castle's bedrooms are not exclusive to you - only the function rooms specific to the Package you are on. We may have other 'B&B only' guests staying, including guests of a wedding the day after yours. If you need more rooms than the minimum, please 'reserve' additional rooms for named guests, then have them confirm their booking with us direct.


How to Book a Last Minute Wedding Package

Arrange a viewing ASAP. Once your Wedding Contract is signed and the £2250 Last Minute Wedding Deposit is paid, together with a monthly payment authority for the balance of your Last Minute Wedding Package, your date is booked.

  • Important Note: For short notice bookings check the availability of the Registrar on 01597 827468 - this number is available Monday - Thursday between 0915 and 1645 or until 1615 on Fridays. For any short notice wedding, check the earliest date you can legally get married. Also check the times they can marry you as they'll have other venues to attend on the same day, affecting your ceremony time.

Check OUR availability here - see 2018, or 2019 - before calling the registrar. Book your viewing by completing the viewing form or by phoning 01639 731167 between 09.00-20.30 hrs. Nearer the date, we finalise your numbers and you make a top-up payment for any extra guests added, and book the balance of any guest rooms (see 'terms' above) not yet booked direct by your guests.

'Best Value' Guarantee - Terms

1. If you find any competitor wedding venues on our competitor comparison page are offering an equivalent package for the Wedding Breakfast and Welcome Drinks at less than the Craig y Nos Last Minute Wedding Package, and you can show us a link to their on line offer/or provide a quote by email or in writing where they are charging less than us, for a wedding within the same time period, we will match their best rate.

2. The competitor must be listed on the competitor comparison page above and must be a proper recognised 'wedding venue' - not a pub! (If you find a competitor venue we have not included on our comparison page, because we have not completed the list yet, we will probably add them).

3. The competitor venue must be at a lower rate per head than us, including their venue hire fees, for the equivalent package, and we will then match their rate.

4. You must also meet the terms of the Last Minute Wedding Package (Relevant minimum number of guests at your wedding breakfast with min. 20 staying overnight).

5. Our best value guarantee extends to any offers under a competitor's standard to the public rate but does not include any “Discounted Deal Sites or Voucher Codes or sales by 3rd Party Merchants".

Post 01/08/2018 Changes
Last Minute Wedding Package

On 01/08/2018, our Last Minute Wedding Package changed. Bookings before 01/08/2018 remain on original terms.  The post 01/08/2018 Last Minute Wedding Package changes are:

(1) Higher numbers are required as day guests, 80 on Saturdays, 60 on Fridays, 50 on Weekdays - instead of the old 40 minimum. We are a large venue offering exclusive use but are seeing a trend to smaller weddings, especially on Last Minute Weddings. We could switch to two smaller weddings a day but we know Wedding Couples prefer sole use. Larger venues have higher minimum numbers to ensure economies of scale and to properly fill the space. For us to offer exclusive use at low rates per head, your guest numbers need to be sufficient to properly fill a large castle wedding venue.

(2)  Welcome Drinks move to a new Wedding Drinks Package and are no longer included in the Day Guest tariff.

(3) Exclusive use including function room and main bar is conditional on having an evening buffet for a minimum of 80 evening guests and a minimum of 80 guests at the wedding breakfast.
