Full Description
If you would like a truly magical time in beautiful surroundings, then Rhosygilwen is the place for you! Neuadd y Dderwen (The Oak Hall) provides a perfect setting for your wedding. Set within 22 acres of superb gardens, between Neuadd y Dderwen and the Orangery we provide a totally self-contained facility where we can cater for 150 guests seated in the Hall, or for up to 220 at your evening party utilising the Orangery, too. You are now able to hire Rhosygilwen as a venue only (for 3 days, which also includes the cost of the accommodation) and have your own caterers, florists, entertainment etc for your celebrations. You will have exclusive use of the venue on the day of your Wedding! Whether your dream wedding is grand and sumptuous, intimate and relaxed, Rhosygilwen will provide a stunning backdrop and memories to treasure! Rhosygilwen is an approved venue for civil ceremonies in Pembrokeshire. Rhosygilwen is very much into sustainability. We have our own Solar Park which provides most of the electricity for both the Hall and the Mansion; the hall is heated by means of a ground source heat pump with underfloor heating and the accommodation is heated by means of a biomass boiler using as much wood from the Estate as we can.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

There is no best - they are just different! From a wedding with just the couple and their 2 children, who had 2 members of staff for their witnesses, to the formal wedding for 150 - and anything else in between!

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

Keep it simple - and remember - it's your day - so have what you want - not what you think everyone else would like you to have!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

The bridal couple liked cocktails - and every table was named after a different cocktail - and the toast was a tray of cocktails of that name for each guest on the table

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Welcoming, beautiful, spacious, stunning, rural!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

There are so many - it's just personal choice!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We regularly have top musicians and singers - we also have many concerts here as well as Weddings and Conferences - and often have celebrities attending Functions and Weddings

What’s your favourite canapé?

Either of these 2: Cardigan Bay Crab Spring Roll, Tamarind Ketchup Treacle Smoked Duck Fritter, Cherry Mustard

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Bacon Baps with thick back bacon from the local butcher! Delicious!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The beautiful grounds!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We have a small team and they love doing Weddings! We also only carry out 15-20 weddings a year (our choice!) so you will never feel that you are part of a production line!
