So you’ve got engaged; congratulations! Your thoughts are probably now turning to one of the hardest decisions you’ll need to make in the wedding planning process; which North Wales venue to choose.
Never fear, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite venues in the area:
Hafod Farm, between Llanwrst and Betws-y-Coed.
Best for: the rural loving couple.
Hafod Farm is so picturesque, it’s one of our favourite places to shoot weddings. The barn is licensed for marriages and holds up to 80 guests, and the reception is held in a marquee (holds up to 150) in their stunning grounds. The farmstead is in the base of the beautiful Conwy valley. So many opportunities for photographs.
Best for: the couple who want something a bit different.
A little piece of the Mediterranean on the Welsh coast, Choosing Portmeirion basically gives you a whole village at your disposal for the day. Choose to get married in one of their beautiful Victorian rooms, have your drinks reception in the stunning grounds and party away in your very own castle. The village is a crazy mix of Welsh countryside and Mediterranean design. It has to be seen to be believed.
Bryn Eisteddfod, Glan Conwy
Best for: the couple who want complete freedom.
A gorgeous country house with gardens with a view over the Conwy estuary, perfect for a marquee wedding. With huge grounds you have complete freedom to host the wedding that you want. A proper hidden gem. Bryn Eisteddfod is in Glan Conwy, just off the A55; perfect for your guests who are travelling into North Wales for your wedding. But above all else, the view of the Conwy Valley is just stunning.
Hendre Hall, Tal-y-Bont.
Best for: the couple who want to go rustic.
An artistic barn complex that looks unbelievable covered in fairy lights and bunting, this is a quirky venue that lends itself to some rather beautiful photos.
Tower Hill Barns, Wrexham.
Best for: the laid-back couple.
Recently renovated, Tower Hill barns gives a modern take on the barn wedding. Weather permitting, you can even get married outside, under an old railway bridge.
Llyn Gwynant Campsite, Snowdonia.
Best for: the festival-loving couple.
A barn in a setting that only Snowdonia can provide, get married in a traditional stone barn, party all night and get your guests to stay on site in glamping tents. Just like your own mini festival.
