Craig y Nos Castle Wales Wedding Venue - Competitor Price Comparisons

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. Use this page to check you are not being overcharged.

On around 70 guests, many venues will charge £2,000 to £4,000 more for a summer 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 on this page. Some needs updating still. Please read this page carefully to understand how we have worked out 'cost per head' etc.

  • The key take-away is how the 'total cost per head' is affected by 'venue hire'. If venue hire is relatively high, say £2,000 to £4,000, this will increase 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. And on some venues you will even find cost per head at £200 - £250 plus. By contrast there are some venues that do not charge any venue hire (as far as we could find) and this reduces the cost per head more in line with Craig y Nos Castle.

Our Pricing Policy.

1. We aim to keep costs for our wedding couples lower than many competitors by keeping what we charge for the wedding breakfast, drinks package and buffet fair, and by reducing venue hire on our wedding packages. We structure our offers so we make more of our income from Guests' B&B and your guests' drinks over the bar.

2. We achieve this on most of our wedding packages by encouraging B&B use by your wedding guests. Your guests fill bedrooms, so we reduce venue hire. Guests staying overnight party longer, drink more. This means the bar does well, and your wedding party lasts late into the night. Everyone is happy.
3. Once you book your wedding, you lock in the tariff you signed up on, irrespective of which year you marry in. Most venues have different tariffs for each year (and we too are concerned about inflation). Different rates for different years make understanding costs difficult. So to keep it simple, we have ONE tariff for ALL years.

When we increase rates, all existing signed up weddings remain on their original tariff for wedding breakfast, drinks package and evening buffet. All 'new' wedding bookings go on to the new rates from the date the rates change.

4. Post COVID, we expect inflation. Wages & costs of supplies will go up. Government money printing and the way the economy is being 'boosted' means there will be inflation. So our policy of charging current year tariffs on weddings 1 - 3 years ahead, is advantageous for you. However your wedding guest B&B rates, bar prices, and evening meals (if dining night before) will go up with inflation. This won't affect what you as a Wedding Couple pay for your wedding meal, drinks package and buffet, as you remain locked in on your original tariff.

Cost Comparator
- get your own spreadsheet below

Research by Bridebook shows couples now have budgeting at the forefront of their minds as costs drive decision making and stress. Venue seekers are getting engaged faster, want simpler details, and fewer guests. Couples spent 52% more on their weddings in 2021 and nearly twice as much on their venues. So to help you with cost comparisons we have created a simple excel spreadsheet - the 'Cost Comparator' - into which you can load any wedding venues tariff either from the data on this page or directly from the information you gather. The yellow cells are formulas (which you can over-write with data if you need to), and the green cells are where you put the known data (if known).

An example for a Saturday in Summer 2023 is shown below. As rates vary according to day of week, calendar year and season, you will need to decide which day and season and year you want, then enter the figures for each venue for the same date period, to get the comparison to work. E.g. decide if it is a Saturday, Friday or Midweek wedding then enter in the Saturday or Friday or midweek tariffs for each venue, for same year and season, so you get a consistent comparison.

See 2022 Competitor Rates Chart. We are only now updating everyone's 2022 rates as the the majority of staff everywhere were furloughed during COVID, then it got busy with weddings. We have some quieter months now to catch up with this. And we are sure seeing some massive increases by venues, with a lot more now charging venue hire, often at quite high levels.

Not all competitors are 'equivalent' venues. As a large venue we do require minimum numbers. Most venues have minimum numbers (not always shown in charts below).

Venue hire can substantially increase the cost per head. For 60 guests venue hire of £2500 to £3500 adds £41.66 to £58.33 per head in venue hire. On low guest numbers, a high venue hire can become almost as much as the main banqueting meal itself. One venue even charges a 'marquee facility fee' (presumably to hire out their lawn and supply electrics) of £13,900, and that's before you hire the actual marquee!  

Some people think it is expensive to get married at Craig y Nos Castle. Especially those who come to us for a viewing before seeing other venues. They're then surprised how affordable we are compared to other venues they see. Others who only view 3 or so venues may never even come to Craig y Nos, and so be unaware of the huge difference in charges.

We regularly check our rates against competitors. Whilst it is not our intention to be the cheapest, our rates are generally lower than our equivalent competitors and certainly lower than other castles. Rates have shot up in the two years since we last updated this page.

You'll find many Victorian mansions and some 'castles' like ours. Then there are really grand old castles dating back pre Civil War - genuine Castles rather than Victorian copies - whose rates are higher!

You can get an immediate quote for your wedding at Craig y Nos Castle starting here.

Our objective is to offer Brides 'Best Value'. Our Last Minute Wedding Package rates should be unbeatable. Some venues charge £4,000 or even £6,000 more! Many venues do not publish rates on line so you have to do a bit of searching.


Some competitors may have 'deals' we have not found, or introduce deals after this comparison was done. Some may have extras within their packages we have not spotted.

All Venues now seem to require you to have a 3 course wedding breakfast, welcome and wedding drinks package, and evening buffet. In the chart below we have shown a comparison based on the full package for all venues.

We will not have included any 'last minute deals' introduced later in the year. To verify savings, check if the other venue is offering any 'deals' in the same time frame as our own 'Deals' such as our Last Minute Weddings.

Anyone who finds any inaccuracy in the below, please email martin.gover@craigynoscastle.com with the corrections and I will add updates to this page.

Exceptions:

1. BRIDAL SUITE: Many venues include a free night in the Bridal Suite. We do not unless > 60 guests are staying overnight, though we do on our Last Minute Wedding Package and some of our all-inclusive packages.

2. EXCLUSIVE USE & MINIMUM NUMBERS: We offer exclusive use but not all venues will offer exclusive use or be able to. Any venue offering exclusive use will have minimum number requirements. For Couples looking for lower numbers, we show each venue's minimum numbers. We had a minimum of 50 for all weddings but have raised this to 70 on Saturdays / premium dates, and to 60 on Fridays.

3. SOLE OR SHARED USE: Some venues may have more than one wedding on the same day, or other guests on their premises. Venues with more than one wedding on the same day and more rooms may allow smaller weddings for their second wedding.

4. NO VENUE HIRE? We offer discounted exclusive use under our Packages. Weddings secured on current rates are locked in on those rates. Bookings made now on current tariffs will not pay any subsequently higher tariff for their wedding. When you book you lock in the tariff applicable to your wedding date as it is showing now, as far ahead as 2024.

5. MENUS: Due to different packages and differing numbers it is not possible to compare like for like. Not least, every venue is 'individual' anyway, as are the menus. Venues have different prices for different menu options and you cannot really compare like for like on menus. Some allow 2 or 3 choices of menu or buffet, some only 1 choice. Where there are 2 or 3 wedding menu or buffet options, we have taken the nearest equivalent menu or buffet option to our own.


6. PACKAGE MEANS YOU TAKE ALL THREE ELEMENTS: Most venues offer a 3-course Wedding Breakfast, some offer more courses, and the Wedding Buffet & Drinks Package are both 'required'. A 'Package' will 'require' you to take the three key elements - (i) 3 course Wedding Breakfast, (ii) Drinks Package and (iii) Evening Buffet. This is perfectly reasonable and something MOST venues will require, together with minimum numbers for 'day' and 'evening'. We do find most Couples will want the Drinks Package and the Evening Buffet.

7. EXTRAS THROWN IN: Some venues include extras such as the Bridal Suite, an anniversary stay, and some will add in the Chaircovers, Flowers, a resident Toastmaster or resident DJ. In our case our Wedding Planner functions as a Toastmaster, co-ordinating everything on the day, and helping direct guests. Other venues' added extras will add to their cost per guest rate, making a like for like comparison impossible. The notes section beside each venue below explains where any extras are included in the per head rate.

8. ACCOMMODATION COST: Some include full (required) accommodation use and include the cost of this within their overall venue hire fee. In such cases it is not clear what the venue hire element is without the accommodation part, though it is possible to make a rough guess at 'x' amount per bedroom based on their B&B tariff. Where function room venue hire and B&B costs are merged into one overall venue fee, a comparison like this involves some guesswork to arrive at a total cost per guest including function room hire only, stripping out the B&B costs.

8. WEEKEND AND MIDWEEK RATES & SEASONAL RATES DIFFER: There are differences between midweek and weekend weddings, high and low season, and last minute or winter weddings. We've put more than one line per venue for 'midweek', 'Friday' and 'Saturday' weddings and different Wedding Packages and any offers etc. Not all special offers are included as some are not known about at time the venue's site is checked.

9. COSTS INCREASE: Hotel & Wedding Venue running costs have increased. The increase year on year in some cases is high.  Increases in the National Living Wage and Business Rates are substantial, and COVID loans now need repaying!  So rates are increasing quite fast with some venues.

10. RATES NOT PUBLISHED: Not all venues publish their rates unless you make a specific enquiry, which we do for all venues with no rates on line.


11. HOW WE CALCULATED COST PER HEAD: There are two columns for cost per guest.

The first, headed "Initial/Guest" is simply the sum of the three columns before it - being the Wedding Breakfast, Evening Buffet and Drinks Package. This is the actual cost per day guest (including the day guests' evening buffet) and should be accurate. However this column can only be accurate where the venue has disclosed the costs for each element - e.g. where the costs for the Wedding Breakfast, Drinks Package and Evening Buffet are all individually itemised within the venue's literature. In a few cases, and in many 'wedding packages', these costs are not shown individually but hidden within a package total, so some assumptions may then have to be made.

The second, headed "total per guest", is the 'package total' divided by the 'minimum number of day guests' which means extras such as venue hire, extras for evening buffet, extras such as free bridal suite in a package, all get lumped into an overall wedding package total cost, divided by the minimum number of day guests for the respective package. This figure is a representation of what you will pay per head, based on having exactly the minimum number of guests required under that package.

The more guests you have, the more any fixed cost elements such as venue hire, free bridal suite and any other extras get divided by a higher number of guests, bringing the cost per head cost down.

So the 'total per guest rate' is only a representation based on the minimum number. You can recalculate the rate per head based on your own numbers simply by dividing your quoted 'Full Package Total' cost by the number of day guests you plan to have at your wedding.

To summarise: many venues include extras. These all add to their wedding package cost. Our "total per guest", is consequently not an actual cost per guest but the cost of the package as a whole divided by the minimum number of day guests required under the package. It includes all the venue's additional elements such as venue hire, if charged by the venue, the DJ, if thrown in, the Bridal Suite, if thrown in, plus any extra evening guests where the minimum required for the evening is above the day guests minimum (the package may have extra added to allow for more evening buffets where the minimum evening number is higher than the minimum day number).

This is why every venue's 'wedding package total' is higher than the number of day guests times the three elements of wedding breakfast, Drinks Package, and Evening Buffet. There are various extras (specified in the notes) uniquely added by each venue to each package. A like-for-like comparison is difficult. Menus, drinks packages, and food quality will be different and each venue is different in what it offers.

The additional elements, typically the Bridal Suite, sometimes a DJ, maybe the floral decorations, or more, are specified in the NOTES section. As you have to pay the 'Full Package Total', we've divided this total you pay for the package by the minimum number of day guests required, to arrive at a "Total per guest" figure.

In a few cases you are required to book additional guest accommodation over and above the 'free' bridal suite within the wedding package and this extra B&B cost is included within the package total. Where we know you must use extra rooms within a package's cost, the B&B element for these extra rooms has been removed from the "Total per guest" figure. In some cases the extra B&B element cost has been guess-timated (where it is an unknowable amount buried within the package total). Where it is a knowable amount based on published B&B rates, the B&B cost for extra rooms above the Bridal Suite has been removed from the wedding package total cost, before dividing the wedding package cost by the number of guests minimum. This give us a "Total per guest" figure without the cost of the B&B rooms. The 'Notes' will show how this has been calculated, if and where this has been done.
For comparison purpose, focus on the shaded column 'Total per Guest'/ cost per head. 'Total per Guest' is based on the minimum numbers for each package and is representative only. For an accurate comparison, you can use the data in this chart to work out the cost per guest based on your own actual guest numbers. Cost per Guest will decrease the more guests you have, as fixed costs such as venue hire and extras such as Bridal or DJ get divided among more guests.

* £30.00 for Drinks Package is guessed as there isn't one (wine is sold by the bottle).

Buffet oprices range from £27 through £36.50 to £52.00 but we have taken their 'finger buffet' at £27 as standard buffet price, as in all venues we compare prices based on cheaper buffet option.

Cost per head in this example based both on the 30 minimum but also on 50 as you would probably go to 50 given hire costs, as otherwise rate per head at 30 guests would be too high.

Venue Hire fee for cost per head calculation reduced by 31 rooms by £150 inc VAT - guesstimated B&B rate per room - (£4,650) so we reduce 24 hire fee to extrapolate venue hire (without bedrooms) as follows: (VAT rates vary in 2022; assume 20% for this exercise):

e.g.
10200 + VAT = 12240 less rooms element guessed at 4650 as above = 7590 presumed venue hire without bedrooms

9200 + VAT 20% = 11040 less 4650 = 6390 presumed venue hire element without the bedrooms

Brochure shows venue hire only, for low season (first row), mid season (2nd row) and high seaon (3rd row). Top figure in each row includes all the accommodation, netting down to bold figure for (our estimate for) venue hire alone.

Prices not found for Drinks Package (which they can quote for) nor for catering. Catering is quoted as 'from £60' for a 3 course Wedding Breakfast provided by external caterers 'A-Zest'.

Venue Hire Includes, Ceremony hire, sound system, floral, linen tablecloths, pillar candles, Knot Barn for meal (capacity 180), B&B in Bridal, 15 further double bedrooms, 3 singles. Also has 2 cottages 'to be booked separately'. 'House accommodation' is included which is 18 rooms plus Bridal) so cottages not included.

Includes Breakfast next day ' for house residents'.

On basis your guests would pay for own rooms, deduct say 20 rooms X £150 for B&B, so give or take £3,000 comes off whole hire fee to get approx cost of Venue Hire alone shown in bold.

* We had to make an assumption on Drinks Package which we estimated at circa £20, and Eve Buffet estimated at circa £17, to then guesstimate some costs per head based on a typical wedding of 70 guests. Given the guesswork here, our cost per head analysis is 'approximate'.  Cost/guest will reduce the more guests you have the more the venue hire cost is split among more guests. On 70 we should be about right, and not more than £10 'out' either way.

Drinks Packages range from £22.50/ head to £32/head. We've
entered the cheapest Drinks Package option on this chart. Buffet
#price varies from £14.95 (bacon butties) - £18.95 per guest.
A mid-range price of £16.95 for the Manor Buffet is used on this chart.

* Meal & Drinks prices are all the same for each year but venue says
prices are 2021 rates so may go up for the Meals etc in 2022 and 2023.

Venue hire varies by season (as below and as in all the rows here).
Each row shows weekend rates top figure, weekday rates second
figure, for each season and year. Ceremony Hire is £500 extra so
this is added to the Venue Hire total.

So in first row (April, Oct & Dec 2022) Hire fee entered as follows:
Venue Hire Fri/Sat 3,250, Weekdays 3,000 PLUS ceremonies at
De Courceys Manor carry an additional service charge of £500.00,
so this is added to the Venue hire above, to get to £3,750 and £3,500
respectively,

2nd row, Jan-Mar & Nov 2022 Venue Hire column comprises V Hire
(Fri/Sat 2,750, Weekdays 2,500) + £500 ceremony charge, to get
£ 3,250 and £3,000 respectively. Etc.

and book all 23 bedrooms for both Fri & Sat at £5,000 per night (£10k). Max 64 to wedding. No drinks package - free flowing to your budget (guess £25). No buffet price quoted, guess £20. Only does a couple of full exclusive use weddings a year and says is 'not a wedding factory'! (ouch!)

Oddly the 2018 rate was much higher at £118.98/ guest.

For 2022 we were quoted lower figures than in 2018, Day and Night Abbey Suite, Bucks Fizz or Sparkling Wine on Arrival, 3 Course Wedding Breakfast, Linen, Chair Covers/ Bows, Cake Table/ Knife, Evening Buffet, Resident DJ with Sound System and Disco Lighting, Bridal Suite

(Package offers welcome drink only, not the full drinks package - so we
estimate around £15 to add 1/2 btle table wine / glass sparkling wine
per guest  for toasts).

186.5014,920.008022/10/18: *Exclusive use (12k summer weekends, £10k weekdays) includes 4 rooms B&B the night before the wedding and all 23 bedrooms on night of wedding & up to 50 breakfasts. I have presumed £5000 of this is B&B, leaving balance as venue hire to add to the total per guest rate

15/02/22: Exclusive hire has dropped since 2018 however it appears 2018 was for 'weekend', whereas now it is for one day. Exclusive hire inc 22 bedrooms quoted at £8,750.00 (may vary by season). Assuming B&B = £150/room x 22, so deduct £3,300 (Guests pay for own rooms) to net down venue hire to £5,450. Exclusive use is necessary as otherwise you have no evening event (restaurant in use in evenings otherwise). Dedicated events mgr from day of booking, Complimentary lunch tasting for two, All linen, napkins, crockery and glassware, Silver cake stand and knife, Table number stands, table menus, toastmaster. 3 course wedding breakfast, Evening Buffet 1. Drinks package, use of Orangery and Garden room (capacity 80 guests & 30 guests respectively, so 110 guests if combining two rooms). Original packages from 2018 not found on latest brochure.

23Lyde Court, Herefordshire Vintage Tea on Fri09/02/22--not inc------144.5710,120.0070
(Package A) Vintage Tea with Prosecco Toast with Bridal Suite. Wedding Packages at Lyde Court offer ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening entertainment in an awe-inspiring 17th Century stone barn. On-line quoter based on 70 guests as of 09/02/22 gave these figures. Appears to be no minimum but rate per head is higher on lower guest numbers; e.g. 20 guests Fri = £7,820 (£391/guest), 20 guests Sat = £8,820 (£441/guest), but 100 guests Fri = £11,500 (£115/guest), Sat = £12,500 (125/guest); so more guests lowers 'cost per head'.
Platters are served to table for guests to help themselves: Selection of Sandwiches, Homemade Quiche, Mini Sausage Rolls, Fruit & Plain Scones with Clotted Cream & Strawberry Preserve, Mini Decorated Cakes, Macaroons, Chocolate Tiffin, Meringue with Fresh Cream & Berries, Tea and Coffee served to the table (no evening buffet on this package)

Ceremony room hire options are: Minstrel Hall £780.00 (Capacity 100), Glyndwr Suite £795.00 (120), Garden Room £520.00 (40), Cedar Room £455.00 (Capacity 30).  Wedding Reception room options are: Glyndwr Suite £750.00, Cedar Room £530.00, Garden Room £530.00, Terrace Suite £895.00, Oak Room & Ante Room £530.00, Portraits Room £650.00, Alternative ACD (Pod) £300.00.  Exclusive hire of venue is £5,000. For our comparision we took Glyndwr suite for both Ceremony (£795.00) and Reception (£750) tho in practice you would use two separate rooms; this gives us a rough room hire rate of £1,545, though the cheapest option would be Cedar room at £455 + £530 = £985 (but capacity only 30). So we are showing the Glyndwr Suite option plus exclusive hire at £5,000. Wedding Breakfast Daffodil Menu £50.40, Hog Roast Buffet £27.30. No Drinks Package as you select from wine list; £30 is a good indicative price based on a conservative selection of wines (assuming 2 glasses/ guest), welcome drink & toasting options, tho you could spend more.

Note with exclusive use you also need to fill all 42 bedrooms (about 84 guests to stay overnight).

Peak period - minumum guests is 70. Bar closes 11.30 pm.

Evenings before Bank Holidays & bank holidays are charged at a Saturday rate.

Between 22nd December & 2nd January venue hire fee is charged as peak summer Saturday rates.

Venue Hire fees for 2023 are £200 higher than all the figures for 2022.

There is no 'minimum number' requirement here, so we have based the cost per head on 50 guests, meaning if more attend, the cost per head inclusive of venue hire goes lower as hire fee divided between more guests.

Includes Exclusive venue and grounds, large Marquee with panoramic view of Gower, Bar marquee, ceremony room, oak beams, fairy lights & candles for your ceremony, star-lit ceiling over dancefloor & bar area, easel & mirror table plan, Bridal suite for Couple & hamper breakfast, Chivari chairs, use of Ocean View decorations, Wooden easel, post box, wedding coordinators, PA system & microphone, Silk floral arrangement stands, cake stand, lace or hessian sashes, table linen, napkins & tablecloths.

Wedding Breakfast £57/ head if have 2 choices of each course, or £52/ head if only have one choice of each course offered to guests.

Buffet options vary, the buffet col contains the Finger Buffet price (£18) for comparison purposes but other optiions include: Chicken Skewers £14, Chip and dip bar £12, Hog roast buffet £19, Hog rolls £16, Cheese buffet £15, Charcutierie Buffet £19.50, Nachos Buffet £11.50, Boxed burger £14.00, Bacon Baguettes with fries £12, Curry Buffet £20 and finally, the Finger Buffet at £18.00 .

*Unusually there is no full drinks package as such. The packages for drinks contain welcome drinks and toasting Prosecco only, at various options priced between £13.00 - £21 but without the wine which is purchased by the bottle. Assuming wine is typically £20/ bottle, with 1/3 bottle / guest in a wine package, so taking a median £16 for the wineless drink pkge, add in wine £7 gives us a guesstimated average drinks package cost of £23/ head

9,975.oo + 95 x EB/DP 3,372.50 =
13,347.50
95You can choose Marquee or Hotel for reception, Prices here based on Marquee. Minimum numbers vary by season and day of week, High Season also includes most Bank Hol weekends. Includes Chestnut room for ceremony. Three Course Wedding Breakfast, Menu Tasting (for two), Master of Ceremonies, Cake Stand / Cake Knife, LED Mood Lighting, Table Linen incl Ivory & choice of napkin colour, Resident DJ, Bridal room.

Optional extras at an additional cost - drinks packages, evening food.

As their Package rate does not include Evening Buffet and Drinks Packages, which are priced separately, we have added these in to get the cost per guest and full package cost, which is calculated in each case on the 'minimum numbers' for each day and Season.  

We took the 'Traditional Elegance' Drinks Package @ 19.50 as representative - comprising Pimms & lemonade with strawberry, orange, mint & cucumber or bottle lager for welcome drinks. Two glasses of wine with meal, glass Prosecco for toasts. Drinks Packages range from £17.50 to £28.80.

For evening, Finger Buffet £16/ guest, or £20/ guest for Mexican or Indian Hot Buffet, or Hog Roast £22. We took the £16 Finger Buffet as representative, similar to buffet used in other comparisons.

The Mon-Weds allows lower minimum numbers but there is a supplement (in Marquee but not in hotel) of £1500 for 15 guests to below 30 guests and £750 for 30 guests.  This does increase costs per head to high levels so we imagine at low numbers you would use the hotel not the large marquee.

Choice of Three Canapes = £7.50/ guest,

"Our exclusive packages are based on 60 adult day guests* in the Old Hall and use of the fully licensed Woodland Bar and Link Marquee."

* Exclusive use of Pencoed House is subject to accommodation use.

Rate based on 60 adult day guests (minimum), 3 course Wedding Breakfast by Cresta Caterers, table linen, cake knife & stand, Arrival Bucks Fizz, 1 glass wine & toasts wine, Flower arrangement for each table, Link Marquee, House DJ to 7-11.30pm.

£345.00 + VAT (£414) = Ceremony Room Hire which we have added to the package price before dividing by min number of guests (60) for a cost per head rate.

Cost per head will of course drop the more guests you have above the minimum level.

But:
** There is no evening buffet within these packages.

All other venues are compared on the basis of a Buffet being included; this really adds another £20 or so to the cost per head (assuming a buffet is added).

We found multiple prices for the same package, with different names, for different date ranges, but could not see a peak summer dates package for Saturdays (so Summer Saturdays may be higher, or not offered?).

We presume weekend summer weddings are not really offetred (certainly they are not promoted), in favour of keeping weekends available for a more regular Dinner B&B trade.

Their 2022-4 rates are shown on this chart.

=9,194.30
85No Min guest numbers teas & coffees with evening reception; main cost is in the hire fee for three days and nights. Arrangement is that you hire the venue for a full wedding weekend including its 12 bedrooms sleeping up to 32 guests for 3 nights. Venue hire is £5,560 in 2020 and £6,950 in 2021. If we deduct 12 bedrooms at a guess of £150 each that takes £1800 off the total hire for venue plus bedrooms; that leaves £5,150 for venue hire alone. The meal, drinks and evening buffet cost is remarkably low at this venue, but the venue hire element knocks the per head rate up.

15/02/22: You hire the venue and use their approved External caterers (Cleverchefs) - extensive wedding menu choices; e.g. £50 for 4 Canapés + 3 Courses (from St Tewdrics Exclusive Menu). Lots of choice.  For *Buffet, prices range from £9.95 chip & dip bar, sausage rolls £12.95, Beef rolls £14.95, Hog Roast (min 80) £14.95, Burger Bar £19.95. We took £14.95 as representative for buffet. Costs are lowish, gives room for upgrading food choices.

Exclusive hire covers: St. Tewdrics House, Cariad Suite for couple, Chiavari chairs/ tables, linen, cake stand/ knife, use of bar, In addition 7 Bedrooms charged from £185/ room on top, must be used by guests. A lot of venue hire options shown as varies by day of week and season; also 17th–30th December is charged at £7,900. New Years Eve charged at £9,900. Venue hire obviously adds to cost per head.

There is an additional fee of £295 for ceremonies which we've added to the venue hire entries

* No Drinks Package as such; we created one off their drinks price list basing it on a selection of Prosecco & wine etc (much is sold 'at cost'; quite low prices for a Drinks Package).

** Total cost of food & beverages before venue hire is competitive, due to low prices of caterers. Upgrade options are available but would not add much more than £10/ head.

We could not find minimum numbers so have now taken it as 70 (it is probably lower as venue makes its money on venue hire regardless). In 2019 we saw min as 75 day and min 100 night.  20/04/19 we found: "Additional day guests at £75pp & eve guests £15pp. Lower numbers require a "special Quote". Exclusive use, bridal suite on night of wedding, welcome drinks, 3 course meal by caterer, 2 bottles of wine per table of ten, toast drinks, evening food for 100 guests, DJ, Pa systems, cake stand and cake knife. Venue hire seems high, varies according to season/ day of week. Has 8 en-suites sleeping 16." (Breakfast not inc - you order this from the external caterers).

Old comparison Data

Meanwhile our rates are the same for each year. This is unique to Craig y Nos Castle as most venues show higher rates for each year. We are decreasing the venue hire discount on some of our wedding packages annually, to keep up with inflation and rising costs, but prices for the wedding breakfast, wedding drinks packages and the evening buffets have remained the same since 2018 and are still at 2018 rates for each year going forward currently to 2025. Eventually there will be an increase in the cost of the meals and drinks, but you will of course lock-in the rate currently showing, when you book your wedding, however far forward your wedding date is.

For simplicity, we make it our policy to offer the same per head rate for the wedding breakfast and all extras, for all weddings, for all years. All bookings made now are 'locked in' on the rate shown. This means you pay the same rate for extra guests added later, even if rates are increased subsequently for later bookers.

This means you can book a 2022 - 2025 wedding at Craig y Nos Castle at current rates.
