South Wales & Swansea Wedding Venue Open Day at Craig y Nos Castle


See Open Days listed here

No Appointment needed -
just turn up on the day!

Open 11.00-4pm


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 two or three key suppliers - Table Decor, DJ and the Photographer.

Starred dates in  calendar have NO suppliers but the Conservatory room is laid out as if for a wedding.

Craig y Nos Castle South Wales Wedding Conservatory
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 looking for ideas. Come to more than one Open Day to keep up with latest trends in wedding decor. You'll always see NEW Table Decor ideas at every Open Day, so no one Open Day is the same. See previous Open Day Images below.

Open Days have a select 2 or 3 suppliers - typically a Photographer, DJ and Decor Company. Starred days are just to showcase the venue with Conservatory set up as if for a wedding, with no suppliers present.

If you have booked your wedding with us, you'll also be able to meet with our main Wedding Photographer and our preferred 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.

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. We only hold one wedding fair a year.

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.

To meet with a Wedding Planner, please book a viewing appointment time here.

An Open Day gives you the chance to View the Castle.

Open Days are 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.
