It includes:

  • A two course wedding breakfast and all the trimmings such as table linen, napkins, candelabra, cake stand

Mid-week 2 night B&B breaks offer: Guests staying at the Castle on the regular wedding tariff on the night of your wedding have the option to stay the night before your wedding at 50% off the normal mid-week B&B tariff (only £35 B&B PPPN based on two sharing an en-suite).

Qualifying Criteria:

50 wedding guests to your wedding breakfast and

25 guests staying overnight at £75.00 B&B per guest (guests pay for their own B&B) on the wedding night.


Our Weekday Wedding Package saves you £2,975 over regular 'weekday' tariff.

So even if you have less than 25 guests willing to stay overnight, you can make up any shortfall as a top-up and still make a great saving over our regular tariff on this Package.

All our wedding packages encourage guests to stay overnight as it makes your wedding last longer, the bar does a roaring trade as no one has to worry about drink-drive and getting home, and you can all party long into the night - hence the castle's name - Craig y Nos - which literally means "Rock of the Night" in Welsh. You can rock the night away!

Add extra day guests above the first 50 for just £50 per guest for the 2 course wedding breakfast

Welcome Drinks,
Table Wine & Toasting Champagne Drinks Package

Welcome Drinks are served in the Nicolini Lounge here. There are many choices you can consider. Speak to your Wedding Planner about your choices for Welcome Drinks. Canapes are an additional option if you are having a late wedding banquet.  

For the Table Wine we recommend 20 bottles for 50 guests or if more guests, we allow 1 bottle of table wine per 2.5 guests. Table Wine is currently £18.40/ bottle. A table of ten would therefore need 4 bottles of house wine, typically two of red and two of white. This means Table Wine works out at £7.36 a guest.

For the Toasts we recommend 2-3 bottles Sparkling Wine, Prosecco or Veuve, per table, depending on the numbers of guests at each table. Sparkling Wine is £21.75/ bottle.  There are 6 glasses per bottle and you need up to two glasses per guest for the toasts, which makes two bottles per table of 6-7 or 3 bottles per table of 9-10. Sparking Wine therefore works out at £7.25 a guest.

On the Bespoke Regular Tariff we will offer you a Wine and Toasting Drinks Package at the above combined cost per guest of: £14.61

On the Wedding Packages we offer a discounted Wine and Toasting Drinks Package at a reduced cost per head of: £17.00

Note if you have less than ten guests on some tables, the distribution of house wine would be altered from 4 per table to, say, 3 per table, to provide no more than 20 bottles of table wine for 50 guests, or no more than one bottle per 2.5 guests.  This ratio applies to the Wine and Toasting Drinks Package, however if you wish to supply additional bottles of wine, these can be offered in addition, at the applicable cost for each extra bottle supplied.

Extra Services not listed on this page

If you require anything not listed on this page, an extra fee may be charged. For any service not included in our Wedding Package or mentioned on this Tariff Page, we may be able to provide the service required for a fee, but not for free. Everything Extra that involves additional time / work / staff hours above what is included in the packages, or additional special purchases, must be quoted for separately. In most cases these are obvious areas where you will be employing your own Wedding Suppliers to set things up. For an idea of the suppliers you will need, see what is not included here.

Anything extra required of Castle Staff to support your wedding that is discussed verbally, where we suggest we can be of assistance, is not confirmed or agreed contractually until it is priced up, and added to your wedding account.

See 'optional extras page here' for key information about some extras that are not included in the Wedding Packages and which will be charged for by separate arrangement, if required.

For example, you may require us to help you with your Table Decor and Favours on the morning of your wedding, as your table decor company may not be available at the required set-up time (or you may be organising your own table decor).

Or you may prefer different combinations of chairs and furniture in the function rooms, compared to what they have in them currently. Note that the moving of chairs out of their regular positions, any other moving of furniture from their regular positions in the Castles' rooms, will incur a separate charge as it is an extra service.

Similarly bringing in non-standard sized alcoholic beverages / bottles, typically as table favours, will incur a Corkage rate specific to the size of bottle and strength (alcohol by volume) of beverage.

Many extra services may be offered by negotiation for a fee, but they are not for free. Extra services are any services where extra staff time is required to be rota'd on specially to perform the required task.  We will advise you of our fee for any extras you require, in advance, depending on your specific requirement for additional support and assistance from the Castle Staff above and beyond what is included within your Wedding Package.
