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.

Covid Wedding
We originally planned a wedding with 80 day guests and 130 night time guests for May 2020. This was cancelled due to Covid, myself and my now husband had no idea what to do. We were desperate to tie the knot, we had already waited 12months for our big day. We then found Pentre Mawr, and it was honestly the most amazing venue I’d ever seen! We went to view it, Bre and Graham showed us around and they were so understanding, down to earth, and determined to give us the big day we desperately wanted. We booked our new date for October 2020, things were still uncertain due to Covid but Bre and Graham somehow managed to take all the stress away, they couldn’t have been more helpful and reassuring in the lead up to the big day. We even went for a summer holiday in the lead up to the wedding, which was amazing! The big day arrived and we had around 15/20 guests, which is a huge drop from our original numbers. However, despite this, the day felt so busy and magical. It was perfect! From getting ready, the venue itself, the food, the amazing help from all the staff, the lodge we stayed in, and the fact we could have our little fur baby there! I would recommend this venue to anybody, I can’t even put in to words how magical it is and how amazing the people are! We will definitely be going back every year!

Amazing wedding venue and fabulous hosts
My husband, myself and all the family had an amazing weekend at Pentre Mawr, We cannot praise Bre and the team highly enough for all their work both on the weekend and the very challenging weeks and months in the lead up to the date, they were always quick to look for solutions to the ever changing rules and restriction's. Bre even quietly saved the day on the morning of the wedding fixing a major issue which occurred with my veil! Due to government restrictions we had to reduce our numbers to 30, which at first was a massive disappointment, however after having such a wonderful day we would not change it, we were actually able to fully enjoy the day and share it all with everyone there. The smaller wedding did turn out to be a blessing, it was relaxing and enjoyable as we were able to spend time with everyone, including us actually being able to spend time with each other rather then running around all day trying to ensure we saw everyone. The layout in Pentre Mawr is so versatile that although it can accommodate a much larger function, it also happily lent itself to our smaller wedding, at no point did we feel that any of the areas were empty or looked out of place

Couldn't ask for a better venue.
We had visited Pentre Mawwr before getting engaged and lived it then so knew we had to go and look when we started to plan. The venue is stunning and the owners and team cannot do enough to make you feel welcome. Covid restrictions have meant we are yet to have our big day, we have had to make a lot of changes but Pwntre Mqwr have been so supportive every step of the way. Truly can't say enough how amazing they have been and can't wait to finally have our big day at Pentre Mawr 💞

Best Wedding Ever
Ok....so I am a little biased as it was our wedding but we can honestly say that if you want to have a wedding the way you want it then this is the venue to pick, there were no set rules or packages to choose from it was as you wanted as long as it was doable! Having got engaged, I didn’t know where to start when it came to looking for a venue, but I did know I wanted some quality time with friends and family and an informal event to celebrate our big day, we wanted friends to stay and to celebrate the night before and when we happened to stumble across Pentre Mawr, it was like suddenly everything clicked into place! The informal relaxed DIY venue, without the full DIY, the marquees are set up, there’s a room full of great ideas to decorate the place with and there is a team of staff to dream of and owners that literally can not do enough for you....they don’t interrupt or inflict ideas on you but are ALWAYS there to help and sort things for you. Graham and Bre really do make you feel part of their family from the moment you step in to view the place, putting no pressure on you actually choosing their venue....to leaving as a married couple and in our case hopefully for a good few years to come! I can’t put into words the amazing hospitality throughout all our visits and wedding weekend, and having been to many weddings could not be happier with our choice of venue!! It really was the best wedding ever!!! Don’t hesitate in booking with the pentre team! We hope to come and stay again Bre and Graham....thanks again for absolutely everything!!

Wedding of The Year
Undoubtedly a beautiful location and venue but this place is made far more special by its owners..Bre and Graham.🤗 What a wonderful family...they could not be more accommodating... You just know they care! I can't speak higher of this place. I was a bridesmaid but I also had the privilege of helping setting up for the big day and of course I was there on the pre wedding meal night.😋 Amazing time from start to finish. I also learnt they are a camping (glamping safari lodges!!) etc location....I will 100% be visiting again! Wonderful!

Perfect Wedding
My wife and I got married here 2 weeks ago. When selecting the venue we had quite a wide scope looking on the Wirral, Cheshire, and North Wales. Im so glad we viewed here even though we didn't quite know what to expect from the website. Within an hour of turning up we knew where we were going to book. There was no pressure (quite the opposite) from Bre and Graham and we were given loads of time to look for ourselves ad then go through any question with them over a coffee. Throughout the planning process they were on hand to help and chase anything that we needed and gave us updates on new additions etc to the venue. There are countless reasons that this venue rose above the others that become more than apparent when you book a viewing but one huge reason was that you get to make a full weekend of the wedding. Being able to decorate on Thursday, arrive and have meal and a night on Friday to the very unrushed relaxed breakfast on the day after the wedding. Bre couldnt have been more helpful during the wedding running everything like clockwork allowing us to fully enjoy every part of the day with no worry, something which is far from a given when organising a wedding. The day went with literally no problems what so ever and there was a plan B for everything if it did. Price, quality, personalisation, management, personality are all so much beyond everything else we viewed (and we viewed a lot) to the point I couldn't encourage someone enough to view and book with Pentre Mawr. Thank you so much to everyone involved with making our day something we will truly cherish forever
