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. There is NO venue hire on this Last Minute Wedding Package.

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 most venues 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.

  • Remember the Last Minute Wedding package is £64/ guest on Option A with Welcome Drinks only, or £78.50 a head on Option B with the full Drinks Package, so around half the rate of many venues on our competitor comparison page.

We got married here on the 15th December and I couldn’t recommend this place enough . Fantastic food, venue, staff. Everybody was so helpful during the day and it all went so smoothly. Adrianne was amazing; she had everything down to a tea and couldn’t thank her enough for all the hard work she has put in 💓 My guests were so complimentary and some even said it was a magical wedding. So want to say a big Thankyou to everybody. Especially our photographer Andrew Jenkins and Pure DJ you were both amazing 😊  Highly recommend this place either for a stay or wedding.

Last Minute Weddings Venue South Wales Craig y Nos Castle dancing on clouds' bridal couple
Last Minute Weddings Reception Swansea Conservatory Terrace
Dec 2019: My (now) wife and I visited Craig Y Nos castle when we started looking at potential wedding venues back in June 2019. We met with Adrianne one of the castles wedding planners who left no doubt in our mind that our search was over after the first look at a venue. We booked on a last minute wedding package for December so my Christmas obsessed wife could have her christmasy wedding. This gave us just 6 months to plan everything! Adrianne (AKA: Sedge) was a god send. She is absolutely dedicated to her role and went out of her way to make our day incredible. She just seemed to be available at all hours of the day when my wife had a moment of panic that something needed changed or forgotten and would resolve any queries without hesitation. Adrianne is a leading example of the staff at Craig Y Nos who are all dedicated to help things run smoothly. The chef helped to get our Christmas dinner and Christmas pudding reception up and running with some beautifully cooked food and a home made Christmas pudding that was utterly incredible. The Staff at the castle made everyone feel welcome and rushed about tirelessly to ensure everyone had what they needed. Honestly, what a fantastic bunch of hard working and dedicated people. Over all, we had an amazing day. The views and the castle helped make our wedding a day to remember for all involved. We are in no doubt that we made the right decision. Thank you so much to everyone involved!

Vaccines and the Omicron variant have reduced COVID's severity and we all now hope things can get back to 'normal'.  We do suggest all those attending weddings should be double jabbed / boosted etc as available & have a negative COVID test before attending. Though this is not a legal requirement, guests may consider this a 'social responsibility'.
