Wedding Balloons

Balloons to add a real party atmosphere. You might use these in the wedding reception room or only use them in your evening disco room for your evening party.

  Beauticians and make-up for weddingsBeauticians / Make-up

Bridalwear and formal hire
 Bridalwear and formal hire

Floral wedding cake  Wedding Cake - see a wide variety of choices and cake ideas on the various wedding suppliers' websites.

Wedding car  Carriages and Cars

Wedding chair coversChair covers - while we have Cheltenham Gilt Chairs that will come out fine in photographs, you will get a much better effect on the day, if you have chair covers. Makes your wedding a really smart affair.

Chocolate Fountains for weddingChocolate Fountains - probably more useful if you are not having a third course for your wedding breakfast.

wedding dove releaseDove Release - I really like this idea and they make a wonderful wedding photo opportunity as you come out of the theatre through the glass doors into the courtyard. Probably not so good in winter, but ideal for sunny summer photos. Have a look at this page to see some lovely photos of dove release at the castle.

Wedding Live Entertainment and BandsEntertainment - Bands; you can have a band as well as a DJ (as the band won't play all the time you may need both). You may even use the band during the day, outside, if it is a nice summers day. This would work during the wedding photographs section of the day, after the wedding ceremony.

Large Bouncy Castle for weddingsEntertainment - Bouncy Castles. Suitable if you have a lot of children, though the adults will always join in as well! Small weddings can place the bouncy castle indoors, though ideally a bouncy castle should go outside on the theatre lawn.

Casino for hire for wedding

Entertainment - Casino for hire. Another idea I like. The tables are generally set up in the Nicolini reception lounge and they are incredibly popular with wedding guests. If you think of it, aside from chatting to each other and eating and dancing in the disco, what is there for guests to do? Whenever we have a wedding that hires a casino, there is a real buzz as the guests, drinks in hand, gather around the tables to place their bets.

Wedding Evening Disco and PartyEntertainment - DJ

Harpist and Harp for wedding hireEntertainment - Harpist. Position your harpist in the ceremony room, so your guests see the harp on the stage as they walk in. A sophisticated alternative to simply playing music on a DVD player. Later the harpist can move outside, in summer, or to the lounge in the winter. She'll play for an hour or two, as long as you want. Adds a centrepiece to your wedding.

Table Magician to entertain guests at weddingsEntertainment - Magician. Table Magicians at weddings are popular, either at the end of the wedding breakfast, or in the evening before the disco gets underway.

Pianist for weddings

Entertainment - Pianist. These days you do not have to hire in a huge grand piano or a regular piano; an electronic keyboard on a stand is all that's needed. The piano can be used instead of a harpist, in the same way - either as background music during the wedding breakfast, or in the ceremony, or during wedding photographs.

Singer for wedding parties
Entertainment - Singer. The singer will normally double up as a DJ - at least the one on our site does, so you have a combination of singer and DJ.

Wedding favours and Table Decorations

Wedding Flowers
Florist. A regular florist at Craig y Nos is Rhian Francis, who is based just down the road from the castle. This makes it easy for her to come up to meetings at the castle, should you wish to discuss flower arrangements on site, while you are visiting Craig y Nos Castle to discuss any other wedding arrangements with the venue.

In 2018 we came to an exclusive arrangement with Brecon Table Decor Company Centre of Attention, whom we now recommend for all your Conservatory decor; they supply wedding reception chaircovers, floral arrangements and table centrepieces.

Hairdresser for weddings

Hog Roast. The castle can supply hog roasts (without the visible pig being roasted) or you can hire in a firm who will roast the hog on a spit and carve the meat off in front of your guests. This will provide a good wedding buffet but you will need around 120 evening guests minimum to justify the substantial cost of using a whole pig. Also be sure to have an early wedding breakfast so guests have a chance to build up an appetite for the pig - you don't want any wastage when going to the expense of a full hog roast.

Jewelers for weddings

Photo Booth Hire for weddings
Photo Booth Hire - A few years ago this was a 'separate hire' and you will find specialist photo booth hire companies on this page. The booths look interesting and novel and there are some striking photo booth designs you can hire. Once a novelty, a few years back, photo booths are now increasingly offered by DJ's as an add-on to a DJ Package, along with large LOVE letters, under-lit dance floors, etc.

Wedding Photographers
Photographers - A good choice here, with many photographers who are regulars at the castle and so are familiar with the best shots and all the photo opportunities we have both inside the castle function rooms and outside in the grounds.

Nick Cleave Wedding Photography
Wedding Stationery - An essential requirement for your wedding invitations, thank you cards, and other stationery.
