An Open Day is not like a 'Wedding Fair' with lots of stall-holders. At an Open Day, the Venue is on display. We have only two or three key suppliers - Table Decor, DJ and maybe the Photographer.
Our upcoming Open Day Dates are listed here.

See the Conservatory Wedding Banqueting room and the venue itself all set up as if for a wedding. See the Tables and Chairs arranged with latest table centrepiece ideas and fashions in chair-covers. Pick from various designs and colours for your wedding. Our preferred Supplier is Centre of Attention in Brecon.
Open Days are for Couples who have not yet settled on a wedding venue & for booked weddings. Come to more than one Open Day to keep up withlatest trends in wedding decor. You'll always see NEW Table Decor ideas at every Open Day, so no one Open Day is ever the same. See previous Open Day Images below.
If you have booked your wedding with us, you'll also be able to meet with our main Wedding Photographer and our preferred DJ - 'Pure Weddings DJ'.
You can combine a visit on an Open Day with an 'Event Finalise' meeting with your Wedding Planner, or schedule a follow-up meeting with your planner to discuss your wedding and any questions you have.

Book an Appointment with our Planner at an Open Day
To book a scheduled one hour meeting with a wedding planner, book here.
Before booking a time with the planners, check Wedding Planner Available Times. Because Open Days are scheduled quite far ahead, the appointment times for the Open Days won't all be on the times calendar, meaning you can book any time.
Book a Wedding Banquet Taster Meal at an Open Day
On Open Days we have Taster Meals for anyone wanting to sample the wedding menu.
On Sunday Open Days, we offer a Food Taster mostly on the Standard Wedding Breakfast Menu. Enjoy a selection of starters, mains, and puddings, each course comprising a comprehensive selection of the different dishes served on a large platter. Select and taste virtually every course on the wedding menu. For Open Days not on other days, your Wedding Taster meal is served at evening dinner times.
For your Standard Wedding Breakfast taster @ £25/ head, please book your table here.
Should I go to an Open Day or a Wedding Fair?
To meet the rest of our Suppliers come to our next Wedding Fair, with 20 - 25 Wedding Suppliers or more.
Wedding Fairs are best attended by Couples who have already booked their wedding venue - either with us or elsewhere - who are looking for extra services for their Wedding Day. If you have not yet booked, you can also attend the wedding fairs, though you won't be able to 'view the venue' as it will be crowded with stall holders.
To 'view the venue' you should come to one of our Monthly Open Days (no appointment needed unless you are having a meeting or a taster meal).
Or for a different viewing date, please book a separate viewing appointment time here.

We will have the Conservatory and Function room set up as if for a wedding so you'll be able to see the castle as it might look on your wedding day.
An Open Day gives you the chance to View the Castle. It is for Brides seriously considering the Castle for their wedding and wanting to see how it might look on their wedding day and also for existing booked Brides looking for room decor and layout ideas.
On an Open Day we set up the Conservatory Day Room with tables laid for a wedding, showing different themes and decorative styles and different chair cover/ sash options.
At an Open Day we are showcasing the venue rather than having all our rooms full of wedding suppliers. You will see the Ceremony Room and Function Room set up as if for a wedding.
A table Decorations Supplier and a couple of other suppliers specific to venue decor, such as the DJ for the function room disco set-up, will decorate the venue.
