Aug 2018: Guys I really don't know where to start....  First of all me and Luke would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you did for us yesterday. We are so overwhelmed by how how perfect you all made our special day. You made it run so smoothly and made it a day that we will cherish and never forget! The time and effort that you and the rest of the staff went through means so much to us, that I just don't know what to say to thank you enough. Literally every person who attended our wedding had so many compliments and you are both to thank for that. All of our guests had the best time at Craig y nos castle! We are so thankful to you all. Your time and effort is priceless and we are so grateful for everyone's help. We cannot recommend you enough! I have posted a review on your Facebook page and will continue to tell people, in however way that I can, how amazing your venue, your food and best of all, how brilliant the staff are. We truly had the best and most memorable day possible...and the majority of it is down to you. Thank you so much...best wishes Kim and Luke

Our Weekend Wedding Package offers best value up to around 100 guests.

Above 100 guests the Ultimate Wedding Package may be more flexible as there is no accommodation use required.

Your wedding planner will recommend the most suitable and best value wedding package for you based on your own requirements. There is an incentive for you to invite more guests for the whole day. Because of the distance to travel here for most guests, we advise all guests be invited for the whole day, rather than have a higher number of evening guests and a lower number of day guests.

If you have got this far, you will probably be a local wedding with reduced use of the Accommodation. If all your guests are reasonably local, you will have more day guests but few will want to stay overnight.

Would you have a minimum of 100 day guests, with up to 150 evening guests, for a large all-inclusive wedding maybe with fewer wanting to stay overnight?

Comparing Costs with other venues

When you look at the various Wedding Packages with any wedding venue, you have two ways of looking at the cost:

1, Total cost of the wedding package and

2, Cost per Guest - or 'cost per head'.

For comparison purposes, it is useful to look at the 'cost per head' based on your wedding guest numbers. Then, if you are looking at other venues, you can compare costs easily, by comparing the 'cost per head' at each venue - compare wedding venue costs here.

In some venues the rate per head inclusive of food & drinks plus venue hire can be high. Rates of £150-250 per guest and more, now apply at many venues. Yet these higher 'per guest' costs can be 'lost' within an overall wedding package price.

The differences in costs between venues may not even be noticed by Wedding Couples. This is because it is easy to lose sight of your 'per guest' costs within an overall package total. The total cost of a wedding package with a lot of guests can be a very large sum in the tens of thousands. Initially you may find you have higher guest numbers than you will be able to budget for, which makes for a large total cost. It is difficult to 'relate to' any very large figures.

So on our comparison charts we looked at the 'cost per guest' for each venue based on their minimum numbers for a package. This is much easier to understand, and is a good measure for comparing costs between packages and venues. We analysed every wedding venue near us based on 'cost per head' and created a competitor comparison chart here. There is a LOT of information here - Sorry for that!

"Amazing place - suspect it is even more spectacular in Summer than it is in Winter so an amazing base for walkers etc but a STUNNING location for weddings - the main rooms (theatre, restaurant and function room) are all perfect...... "   Read more

Under the bespoke 'regular tariff' you can opt to have the Wedding Breakfast only, and hire the Venue only. However most Couples choose one of our discounted Wedding Package with these three core services:


(ii) A Drinks Package and

(iii) An Evening Buffet.


The rates for each wedding package are shown in the tables above.



Slightly higher minimum numbers are required on Saturday and Friday for our Wedding Packages. Choose a midweek wedding for lower numbers.
