Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Be it the setting, atmosphere, food or service it goes without saying that all our weddings are without exception fabulous! If I was to pick an instance which demonstrates what we offer at Tre-Ysgawen I'd refer to the Daily Mirror and their praise of our "exquisite" food and "lavish" interior which fosters feelings of being "transported to an episode of Downton Abbey". Tre-Ysagwen offers a timeless period charm coupled with a high-quality delivery of product and services, it is these factors which contribute to making all our weddings the best of celebrations.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Without stating the obvious our #1 wedding planning tip would be to plan. Organisation and the consideration of every aspect of your wedding day is crucial to the enjoyment and satisfaction you personally gain from it. Have everything organised. Nerves aside having everything ready and in place will allow you to relax (as much as possible!) in the build-up to the big day.
Another little tip would be to think about cost, decorations can be re-used through-out the day (moved from the ceremony on to the wedding breakfast, from the wedding breakfast to the evening reception). Additionally professional looking table plans can be made at home (with a little practice).
