Here at Pentre Mawr, we do things a little differently. We charge one fee and give you total freedom. So you can bring your own caterer and your own wine with no corkage. We sit in 6 acres of gardens, our stable yard has a fire pit for the evenings and our Secret Walled Garden is ideal for your wedding ceremony. We have two marquees and two super barns to make sure that you have cover on the occasional days it rains in Wales! This year we’ve just build a beautiful white pagoda on the HaHa for totally out door weddings subject to the weather. So you can bring your own caterer and your own wine with no corkage. We’ve got a fantastic Pinterest room with loads of lovely goodies you can use to decorate your marquee. From buntings to bird cages, candelabras to huge martini glasses, lanterns and anything else you can imagine. We also provide a photo wall, so there’s no need to book a photo booth, and we have a fantastic candy cart that you can fill with your favourite sweeties. And the most daft thing of all... a doughnut wall! Our latest purchases are huge LOVE letters and a 5 foot heart so there’s no need to order any of the extras as these are all here for you to use. You two will have a room of your choice for two nights with breakfast. Where possible, we will be happy to offer you a complimentary stay the night after your wedding. (Very occasionally this may not be possible). Many venues close the main house on the wedding day, but we’re always open and it’s your country house for the weekend. As I already said our wedding store is full of all the lovey things you might like to decorate your wedding. In the dance barn the PA system and disco lighting are available to you. So you can choose a DJ, band, or your own playlist if that’s what you’d prefer. We’ll provide buckets of advice and help and most of all mini crises management to whatever level required on the day.

Full Description
It is becoming harder to find a wedding venue that is truly unique – but not impossible. In beautiful North Wales, nestling in the foothills of the Clwydian range, an area of outstanding natural beauty, stands 5 Star Pentre Mawr Country House Just an hour from the metropolises of Manchester and Liverpool and only four hours from the capital. It’s an unlikely place for the most unusual wedding venue – an 18th-century Manor House where you can marry in an authentic African Safari Lodge and then sleep under canvas on your wedding night. Britain’s first country house offering guests the choice of conventional hotel accommodation or spacious lodges that are the last word in comfort. There really is no limit to the kind of wedding day you can create for yourself – and it all begins with your choice of venue. Whatever you choose will no doubt be a reflection of the kind of couple you are – at Pentre Mawr, there is no limitation to your imagination. Here, we’re breaking all the rules! So, it’s your dream to get married in a beautiful walled garden, you can. If a rustic barn is your thing, no problem. Go completely bonkers, how about a genuine African Safari Lodge? If vintage is more you, the elegant manor house provides the perfect setting for an intimate wedding. I know what I’d want if I were you…all of the above but most of all control. So often when you go to wedding venues you get a list of don’ts. That’s the one thing we’re trying to avoid here. Everyone asks us about our bronze, silver and gold packages. We only have one, it’s the perfect package and you choose it.

Myself and husband got married here 16.07.22 and we couldn't recommend it enough!!! Bre and Graham are such wedding people and it makes such a difference to the planning of wedding and the day. Abbie and nina are just perfect un every way from planning to the day after the wedding. Honestly even to the finest of details.. perfect. Every member of staff we meet while there were so polite and kind. Each person took the time to talk to u and ask us how we were and how it went on with the day. To put it simply... don't bother looking any where else for you wedding. Just book here! The grounds are to die for, every where you look there is an amazing view, we had so many comments on the amazing views and amazing venue. The accommodation for our family and friends was brilliant, it was great to have the closest friends and family in one place. We all loved where we stayed. And I particularly loved the bridal walled garden the morning on the wedding. Watching people going taking there seats from thw bathroom window without being seen was fantastic!! Bre and Graham thank you so much for having us ❤️ and sorting out the line up! You guys make this venue so very special and we will certainly be staying again in the future. Nina thank you foe putting up with the text and questions constantly. Abbie... just thank you!!!! You calmness on the day of the wedding was catching!! So organised, kind, and helpful. I can't put into words how amazing you all are. We wish we could relive every moment again

One of my Favourite Wedding Locations
I am a Wedding Photographer and have built an incredible rapport with the owners and staff at Pentre Mawr Country House. Aside from the fact that they are so nice and accommodating to me..... I'm blown away as to how professional and accommodating the staff are with each of their couples and the many guests. Nothing is a chore. The venue itself is so well maintained and a dream for we photographers as it offers such a vast range of locations for photographs. I can't wait to return and be a part of many more weddings in the future.

From start to finish they have been exceptional.
We have just come back after celebrating our long awaited wedding. We booked Pentre Mawr last minute having had two cancellations this last year. We are so glad we decided to book our special day/weekend at Pentre Mawr! From start to finish they have been exceptional. Communication was good in the lead up to the wedding and all questions were answered promptly! We arrived for our wedding weekend on a rainy Friday to set up. Following a busy day, we were then able to relax with a pre- wedding meal with our wedding party, we were well and truly looked after by Abbie and the team. After a restful night in the Bridal cottage we woke up to glorious sunshine for our wedding day! The wedding party were treated to a full breakfast in the Hayloft dining room and the Bridal party were served in the Bridal cottage in between getting ready. We decided to have our closest friend do the ceremony for us, having done the "legal" bit a few weeks earlier in Liverpool. I would highly recommend any couple to do this, our ceremony was absolutely perfect and personal to us. We managed to have a beautiful ceremony outside overlooking the Welsh countryside, we were unbelievably lucky with the weather! We then partied the day and night away before ending up in a heap in our safari lodge. We were then treated to an additional night which was really nice to unwind after the day and open cards/presents. The whole day was perfect from start to finish and we cant thank the whole team at Pentre Mawr enough for making our day so special. They really make an effort with the small touches to the day and there were a few surprises along the way! Thank you!!

The best day of ever!
Pentre Mawr were incredible during every step of our wedding planning process and on the day itself. No request was too much and they went above and beyond throught the day, with a few extra special touches along the way. Graham, Bre, Nina, Abbie and the whole team were great and we had the most perfect day ever, despite getting married during Covid. Can't recommend Pentre Mawr enough if you're looking for a wedding venue that you can make your own.

Wedding weekend WOW WOW WOW !!!
We have just celebrated our daughter’s wedding at Pentre Mawr. Words can’t really express how brilliant it was from start to finish ,it was the most amazing experience. First Bre, Graham, Nina and Abby make you feel so at home and are always on hand to help and support. They are total professionals but so friendly and welcoming and they just work so hard to ensure everyone has the best time ever. The house is stunning, the safari lodges are great fun, the barn and wedding marquees perfect. I could go on about Pentre Mawr all day but if you want the best wedding ever go and see it for yourself, there is no doubt you will book it there and then! I can’t recommend it enough.

Incredible venue!
We had an absolutely brilliant wedding weekend and couldn’t have been happier with it being at Pentre Mawr! Everything was fabulous, even the weather! And Bre, Graham and the team were so helpful all weekend, helping make it the perfect wedding for us. Spreading the celebrations over the whole weekend was exactly what we were after and made it so memorable. Wish we could just do it all over again! Sarah & Neil Henshall

Fantastic!!!.
