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

Select a Wedding Package based on whether you have 25, 40, 50, 60, 70 or 100 or more Guests at your wedding - and whether you have your wedding on a weekday or a weekend.
Venue Hire is dependent on year and season and is shown at the top of the table where applicable, or included within the cost per head rates on some packages.
The Cost Per Head rows below are based on:
- the standard three course standard wedding breakfast,
- the standard Drinks Package, and
- the Evening Finger Buffet, plus
- any extras included in each wedding package.
The cost per head will alter as you add more guests and add extras such as the Evening Buffet and a Drinks Package.
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:
(i) A Wedding Breakfast
(ii) A Drinks Package and
(iii) An Evening Buffet.
The rates for each wedding package are shown in the tables below.
In some venues the rate per head inclusive of the three elements above plus venue hire can be high. Rates of £120-220 per guest and more, now apply at many venues. High 'per guest' costs may be 'lost' within an overall wedding package price, and may not be noticed by Wedding Couples.
So we analysed every wedding venue near us and created a competitor comparison page here! We feel hiding the 'per guest' costs is unhelpful; we prefer to make everything clear for our Couples, so everything is detailed for you on this page.
There is a LOT of information here - Sorry! With several choices of wedding package, you may initially have no idea which wedding package is right for you!
- Do you prefer midweek, or weekend?
- Which year?
- How many guests day and evening?
- Will your guests want to stay overnight?
- Are you looking for a small Intimate Wedding or a larger wedding?
- Are you after a wedding package that gives you the maximum possible savings, or are you looking for something comprehensive and all inclusive - 'everything included'?
DO not worry, when you first start looking at websites and packages, the range of options will be mightily confusing. Our Wedding Planners will ensure you get the best deal for your requirements.
For more information on choosing the right wedding package for you, visit Select your Wedding Package here.
Once you know which wedding package to choose, here at Craig y Nos Castle, you can get a quick quote for your own wedding right now, on this page - start here.
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?
Okay, why not have a look at the Wednesday Wedding Package. This is a Tea and Buffet offer, instead of the traditional wedding breakfast. You need 40 guests only, with 20 staying overnight.
Or have another look at our Last Minute Package. This requires only 50 guests to Wedding Breakfast and 20 guests overnight. Available on any date within next 6 months and first Quarter of next year.
Which Wedding Package suits you best?
(i) Weekend Wedding - Saturdays 70 guests at Wedding Breakfast, Fridays 60 guests at Wedding Breakfast, both with 50 guests overnight (guests pay for their own B&B)
(ii) Weekday Wedding - 50 guests at Wedding Breakfast, with 25 guests overnight (guests pay for their own B&B)
(iii) Last Minute Weddings - 50 guests at Wedding Breakfast, with 20 guests overnight (guests pay for their own B&B)
(iv) Ultimate Wedding Package with low overnight accommodation requirement. A fully comprehensive All-Inclusive Wedding Package aimed at large local weddings of 100 guests or more where most guests won't want to stay overnight. Requires a minimum of 100 guests to your wedding breakfast for free fully exclusive use of all ground floor function rooms.
(v) Weekend Exclusive Deal. V.I.P. All-inclusive 2 day Wedding Package. This is a full weekend all-inclusive Premium Wedding Package with full Exclusive use of the Castle for the whole weekend, with pretty much everything you’ll need in your chosen Wedding Venue, included.
If your wedding numbers or overnight guests numbers do not meet any of the criteria for the Wedding Packages selection above, we have a Bespoke Tariff here, with some further links to smaller wedding packages that may suit you.
Alternatively, for smaller weddings of 25-49 guests, without an accommodation requirement, see our Intimate Wedding Package here.
Or for Ceremony Only weddings, see our Ceremony Only Wedding Package here.
At Craig y Nos Castle you could opt just to have the Wedding Breakfast though in practice most Couples will have a Drinks Package and an Evening Buffet or, at the very least, a Cheeseboard Buffet.
Slightly higher minimum numbers are required on Saturday and Friday for our Wedding Package. Choose a midweek wedding for lower numbers.
