Amazing!!
We booked Glyngynwydd for our wedding the same day we went to see it. As soon as we saw it we knew it was the one. The whole venue is absolutely beautiful, in all weather! Having the freedom to really shape the whole place into exactly what we wanted for our wedding was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for Carla who helped us every step of the way in the lead up to the big day, and for the whole weekend! Every time we visited, Carla made us feel completely at ease - it was like going to visit a friend. The lovely weather meant we could get married up in the woodlands which was truly spectacular! Our guests were blown away with how stunning the whole place was! If you’re thinking about getting married here - do it! Thank you so much Carla for allowing us to take over for the weekend and helping us to make our wedding amazing.

The Perfect Week
While many wedding venues claim to be unique, rustic and provide a blank canvas that makes 'every wedding different' - Glyngynwydd manages to exceed all 3 of the above. If you want to be creative, have a wedding that is personal to you and enjoy the venue for more than 24 hours; Glyngynwydd is your perfect place. It is hard to put into words just how special our wedding was at Glyngynwydd. In addition to the weekend itself, the build up was made stress free by Carla as she helped with any questions and concerns we had. Planning the wedding from abroad and having a build up that lasted much longer than expected was not an issue in the slightest with a host like Carla. She is calm, helpful and flexible - someone who we would now consider a friend. During the week of our wedding, we stayed at Glyngynwydd for 5 nights and it really felt like home. We enjoyed time bringing our vision to life, had a special evening with parents and then 3 full days with all our guests onsite. In addition to the wedding day itself, there were memories made waking up in the homely cottages, hiking up the many hills that surround Glyngynwydd, drinking coffee in the morning with the ducks and star gazing while toasting marshmallows on the fire. Carla helped us to create a full itinerary of activities that not only made use of Glyngynwydd's stunning setting, but also allowed us to spend as much time as possible with friends and family. The tepees, the pizza van, the karaoke, the football game, the breakfast in the meadows, the unreal caterers, the ceremony in the forest, the cottages, the barns, the arrival in the lower field and the goodbye breakfast on the Sunday - 5 days full of memories that we will never forget at a truly wonderful place. We can't wait to go back to Glyngynwydd again soon!

The most beautiful venue!
We can not recommend Glyngynwydd enough! We had our wedding day 2 weeks ago and it was everything we could have dreamed for and more. Carla is absolutely amazing and was there to answer any questions and lend a helping hand! We were lucky to be married in the woods, which is exactly what we had hoped for, the barn was perfect for our reception and we loved how we could put our own touch to everything, the grounds and views were spectacular and we could not have wished for a better venue! The cottages on site were perfect as it meant we were able to enjoy the whole weekend with our friends and family at the most beautiful venue!

A fantastic venue for a wonderful wedding
At Glyngynwydd, I went from a worried and stressed bride's mother to an ecstatic, proud and happy one. If you are reading this and considering booking a wedding there, consider and hesitate no more - go ahead and book Glyngynwydd for its rustic charm to make your day your very own. Many guests stayed on the site for the weekend, some in the cottages and others in bell tents which were put up ready for them. I dreaded the chore of decorating the barns on Friday evening but it turned out to be a fun social event, a chance for friends and family to meet up and get to know one another the night before the wedding. Everyone enjoyed a barbecue together around an open fire in the end. There was a relaxed atmosphere on Saturday morning also as everyone geared up for the main event. My daughter's wedding was wonderful, enjoyed by one and all - young and old, able-bodied and disabled alike. It had a street food vibe with pizzas for early afternoon, fish & chips followed by dessert for the main reception and Venezuelan arepas for late-night revellers. Clearing up on Sunday morning wasn't a chore either because Carla, the owner, had found elves to do the hard work for us while we were all asleep. It was a wedding both memorable and magical which far exceeded all expectations. Words are not enough to describe the great time we all had and the beautiful memories the bride and groom have of their special day. A visit to the site may give an insight but won't be a true reflection of the uniqueness and individuality of the venue which make Glyngynwydd weddings so remarkable. Can I really only award them 5 stars? They deserve five times five stars! Why was I such a worried and stressed bride's mother? Glyngynwydd is a stress buster – see and prove for yourselves! I can't wait to re-live that wonderful day when we get the photos and I hope they show Glyngynwydd in all its glory. Thank you, Carla and family - for all you did in the run-up to the wedding, on the day and afterwards.

Where to begin!
We booked this incredible venue about 4 years before the wedding, as soon as we saw it we knew it was the one! The location is incredible, the fact that there is onsite cottages too for family who have travelled to stay was a big plus for us, there are so many areas to get married at Glyngynwydd you aren’t restricted at all, from the barns to the lawn to the woods, it’s the perfect blank canvas. We also loved that there was no corkage fee so we could have fun serving alcohol in baths, wheelbarrows and of course the pallet bar! I cannot say enough about the venue or Carla the venue owner, she was there whenever I needed her, letting us pop in to measure up and answered any question I had over the lead up to the wedding. The day before she was on hand to move furniture and help out and on the morning of my wedding at 7am carla was outside with me moving hay bales into place and helping to calm my nerves! She helped with any problem on the day and honestly felt more like a friend, we will be forever grateful to this lovely lady!!! I truly can’t say enough about Glyngynwydd or Carla, it’s just a magical place! Our guests were blown away by the whole set up and how gorgeous everything was! Thankyou so much Carla for everything.

Proud parents ❤️
Our daughter Soph, married Lee in such a perfect location. Carla helped make the day super special with her calm & chilled out nature. Nothing was too much trouble. Staying on site meant we could meet & get to know the other guests, or simply have a quiet moment within the grounds. Cottages are well equipped & we even got to enjoy some fresh eggs laid by the chickens that morning 🐔 The day went without a hitch & we ended it with a camp fire 🔥 Thanks Carla for helping make our baby girls day so special ❤️

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

A wonderful couple came from Dubai! They all arrived Thursday, played competitive sports Friday with their guests that came from all around the world. On the wedding day they did an exercise bootcamp in the morning followed by breakfast in the wild flower meadow. Everyone then went to get dressed for their wedding at 2pm which was a spectacular affair. They all went for a hike on Sunday, guests checked out Monday and our lovely couple left Tuesday after a good nights sleep!!
