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.

Absolutely fabulous venue for a wedding festival
I can’t describe our wedding as just a wedding day but more of a festival, the venue is hired for 3 days, 2 just for guests the third for the bride and groom alone to begin married life. The safari huts with private hot tubs are a special treat for guests and the house rooms have spa baths (utter bliss) anything goes at this venue as long as it’s legal. I can’t express enough praise for Graham, Bri and the team, nothing is too much trouble and we had the most amazing wedding to ever be had throughout all of time.
