Should you hold your wedding ceremony elsewhere, you are welcome to have your reception in the grounds and to stay in the accommodation on the Estate. We would be happy to talk further and help with arrangements.
The key things we were looking for when starting to plan the wedding were a beautiful setting, where we and our family could stay, and the freedom to arrange for ourselves the different elements (food, drinks, music etc) of what we hoped would be just a wonderful celebration with family and friends. Glanusk Estate provided us with exactly what we were looking for – it couldn’t have been more perfect!
With exceptional help from the Estate at every level it went extremely well and everyone was happy and delighted with our choice of venue.
It would be difficult to imagine more helpful hosts and staff. Thank you – we do appreciate it and look forward to seeing you again.
What a beautiful setting‚ what a beautiful service‚ what a wonderful wedding‚ how beautifully organised‚ we have never attended such a wonderful occasion‚ these are just some of the many positive comments received in the thank you letters‚ following the wedding of our daughter Claire to Ian at Glanusk Estate over the recent August Bank Holiday and it is not difficult to see why we got such rave reviews. The team at Glanusk made sure the whole weekend was a magical occasion. Of course, weddings are always memorable, but the seamless planning, a willingness to work in partnership and superb delivery made sure that Claire and Ian and all of our guests had something remarkable to look back on.
I know you are rightly proud of your superb home but you should also be extremely proud of the wonderfully high standards of hospitality you and “Team Glanusk” achieved
Thank you so much for making our wedding weekend so special. Glanusk Estate is absolutely stunning and we felt like royalty to be able to get married there. It has been absolutely perfect.
It has also been so great that the team at Glanusk have been so organised behind the scenes and yet so relaxed and flexible in allowing us to set up the wedding of our dreams. Thank you again!
I wanted to say a big thank you for all your help last weekend at Catrin and Ben’s wedding.
You were always on hand, on Thursday and Friday as well a on the wedding day itself – really you could not have been more helpful.
Bryn tells me you even kept an eye on Carwyn during the ceremony, when he rather conveniently went to sleep.
The breakfast was excellent and generous and you accommodated our long and drawn out arrival to eat it! You showed great manners and flexibility throughout.
So – many thanks indeed. We all thought it was a wonderful wedding, in a most beautiful setting, and altogether a great weekend.
