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

The best weekend and better than how we imagined it to be! 9.7.22
I wanted to thank you all for all the hard work you put into everything. It has honestly been the best weekend and better than how we imagined it to be! The food made by both Bre and Graham absolutely delicious and thank you so much for welcoming us into your home. Nina thank you for answering my constant messages and calls, and calming my anxieties. Abbie has been fantastic this weekend, she has an art for knowing when she's needed and has a special way of keeping people calm. The guests have been messaging constantly telling me know amazing the venue has been and we've had such good weather to show it off! Everything has just been beautiful! Thank you!

The whole weekend was brilliant from start to finish! 25.6.22
Fantastic venue for a wedding! The whole weekend was brilliant from start to finish! We got married here at the end of June and so glad we picked this place. All the staff are very helpful running up to the day and extremely helpful on the day. The bonus Friday evening meal really makes the weekend special and also helped us relax before the big day (The food on the Friday was amazing too!) The team helped ensure everything ran smoothly on the day and we felt very looked after. We got so many positive compliments on our day for the the venue and staff. The set up of being able to choose your own vendors also massively helps you to create a unique day of your own. We'd recommend this place to anyone wanting to gey married!

I can't recommend Pentre Mawr enough! 7.5.22
I can't recommend Pentre Mawr enough! If you are looking for the perfect wedding venue then honestly look no further. There are multiple things that really appealed to us about the venue and I will try to explain these a little bit below: - Its absolutely beautiful! Set in the Welsh hills, its surrounded by stunning countryside and before the party starts all you can hear is birdsong. - We were given absolute freedom to make the day our own, and have anything that was important to us. For us, it was really important that our dogs could come with us for the weekend, and they were even able to come down the aisle (thank goodness they behaved!) We also had total freedom to choose any supplier we desired with no extra cost. This allows you to make sure everything is just how you want. - We booked our wedding in the height of covid but I have to say, we always felt extremely secure that the wonderful team of Bre and Graham would look after us and guide us through whatever the world chose to throw at us. - The full wedding weekend allows your nearest and dearest to come and settle in on the Friday night. This really means on the Saturday that you can relax and enjoy the day, safe in the knowledge everyone is rested from travelling and are ready for the fun to really start. Really and truly we had the best day of our lives and can't thank these amazing people enough for their part in it.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We have a saying here at Pentre, "If it's legal and we can physically do it, it answer is a resounding YES!!" We are want every bride to have whatever they want on their wedding day so when a bride said she wanted a fairground, we thought, why not. it was brilliant and we even got to go on the Ferris wheel just before they took it down. Fantastic!!!.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Use a budget planner and at each venue ask for a price per person inclusive of everything. There can be so many add ons, that why here at Pentre we charge one fee for our couples and they can use all the lovely things we have inner wedding store, like our candy cart, photo wall, doughnut wall, cupcake stand, Prosecco wall and so much more all included in the venue fee.
