The Weekday Wedding Package includes:

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

  • Plus exclusive use the castle's ground floor day function rooms, being the conservatory for your wedding breakfast and the opera house for your wedding ceremony

  • The Evening Party Room is added free for your evening entertainment, when you have 75 guests to your evening buffet

  • For smaller weddings, you have both your wedding banquet and your evening party in the Conservatory.

The Midweek Wedding Package (MWP) is the same as the Special Wedding Package (SWP) above, for fewer guests.
Mid-week 2 night B&B breaks offer: Guests staying at the Castle on the night of your wedding have the option to stay the night before your wedding at 50% off normal mid-week B&B tariff (£35 B&B PPPN based on two sharing an en-suite).


Our Weekday Wedding Package saves you £2,087.50 over regular 'weekday' tariff. If you have less than the minimum numbers, you can make up any shortfall as a top-up and still make a great saving over the regular tariff on this Package.

With your guests staying overnight, your wedding last longer. No one has to worry about drink-drive and getting home. 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!

Welcome Drinks
Table Wine &
Toasting Champagne
Drinks Package

Welcome Drinks are served in the Nicolini Lounge here.

Canapes are an additional option if you are having a late wedding banquet.  

For 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 £18.40/ bottle. A table of ten would 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 number 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 Wedding Packages we offer a discounted Wine and Toasting Drinks Package @ £17.00/Guest.

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.
