Wedding celebrations!
We got married here a couple of weeks ago! After a year of planning (26/10/2019) We had a few hiccups in the beginning but they were dealt with immediately! 😊 Such a beautiful venue, we couldn't of wished for a more perfect day! The staff were so welcoming and catered to our every need! We can't thank them enough. We would really like to say a big thank you to Molly for all that she done for us! From the endless phone calls, emails, me breaking down into tears and never once did she moan! Nothing was ever to much for her! We went through a hard time and we would always have a phone call checking in on us to make sure we were okay! From sorting our accommodation to literally helping with every little thing! Our day went perfectly and it's all down to her! If she noticed a problem it was dealt with before I even knew about it! The flowers and bracelet we got her just don't seem enough to show her our thanks! She literally felt like apart of our family! I hope she gets the recognition that she deserves! We love you Molly 💛 We would definitely recommend Craig Y Nos & look forward to coming down over the Christmas period 🎄❤️

Our Wedding
We got married here on September 14th. Nicola was absolutely amazing from the moment e have the first meeting with her. There was countless emails and phone calls exchanged between her and my father in law ( our unofficial wedding planner) which she was happy to answer any questions we had. We had some many requests that were not quite ordinary but non of them were a trouble. There were minor things that went wrong during the day but we was completely unaware of these as Nicola had sorted them so quickly and professionally. The day would not have gone the way it did without her. The castle was absolutely stunning! The weather was lovely so we was able to go down to the grounds as well. The waiting staff were amazing and friendly and were so accommodating when I asked questions or had requests. We can not thank Craig y nos enough for making our day perfect. I’ve been waiting to have our wedding photos before leaving a review, so we could show off how amazing it all looks

Family and friends said it was one of the best weddings they had ever been too. Brilliant location for scenery and photogtaphs. Had an incredible day.

Travel Notes

From the North Take the M5 motorway South to the M50. Follow the M50 to the end, near Ross on Wye, where it becomes the A40. Continue ahead, and after passing Monmouth go another six miles and then take the first junction after the service station, signed A40 Abergavenny. Follow the A40 until after a long straight section you approach a large roundabout near Abergavenny where you leave the A40 and continue straight ahead. This road is the A465, signed to Merthyr Tydfil. Stay on the A465 for around 26 miles, passing the junction to Merthyr Tydfil, and continuing to the A4109 junction at Glyn Neath. Follow the A4109 through the traffic lights in GlynNeath and over the hill towards Abercrave. This becomes the A4221, but continues straight ahead until it drops down to the A4067 road. At the junction with the A4067 turn right and follow the road for four miles to Craig-y-Nos Castle, which is on the right. From the South and the M4 Motorway Follow the A470 Northwards from junction No32 of the M4 motorway to the A 465 just beyond Merthyr Tydfil. Head West on the A465 continuing to the A4109 junction at Glyn Neath. Follow the A4109 through the traffic lights in GlynNeath and over the hill towards Abercrave. This becomes the A4221, but continues straight ahead until it drops down to the A4067 road. At the junction with the A4067 turn right and follow the road for four miles to Craig-y-Nos Castle, which is on the right.

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

It was a Halloween themed wedding, they decorated our castle with all Halloween themed decorations throughout and then decorated the tables for the wedding breakfast with such classy but dramatic flair. They were such an amazing couple who also had there fur baby aka Dog as very much part of their day. Then in the evening they hired Zombie actors to come out and scare their guests its was amazing and so original

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

Find out what decorations your venue can provide you on your wedding day, for example things from cake stands, easels, tea light holders etc. this will save you perhaps buying items that you do not need to buy and the venue can provide.

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

So I have 2 – one being it was a travel themed wedding and they named their wedding breakfast tables after places they had visited together and each table had a photo of them at that country/place they had been. Then the second is some beautiful memorial tables for lost loved ones.
