Simply wow!

Glyngynwydd wedding barn is the place to go to make all your wedding dreams come true! Set against beautiful rolling hills, with woodland and even a little stream on site you have the most amazing backdrop for a wedding. Not only that but you are able to plan the weekend exactly how you want it from decorations, to games, to suppliers, to on site accommodation and beyond. We're not traditional in anyway so to have found a place where we could bring to life our colourful, chaotic, joyous wedding was magical and we are so grateful to Carla for letting us do what we wanted. You only have to look at the venue's instagram to see how versatile it can be and how every couple have gone with something different and unique to them. Carla is a wonderful host always responding quickly to any questions we had, allowing us to visit the venue multiple times to take measurements etc. and even being on hand on the day rounding up our guests to make their way to the ceremony. She's just a lovely human and has created the perfect setting for an unforgettable day.

More perfect than you could imagine!

WOW!!! We had multiple guests ask us 'why are you going all the way up there for a wedding?' .. the moment they walked in, they understood why.

From day one, Carla was fantastic. The most welcoming and warming host we could've wished for. She's build the venue into truly the most perfect location to celebrate your day.

Nothing was ever too much of an ask! And trust me.. I asked a LOT of questions, lol.

The venue has everything you could wish for, and with the most relaxed vibe, it was perfect for us. We fell in love with it as soon as we saw it, and never had any doubts about it. Our wedding was truly perfect.

The most picturesque venue around and I truly can't recommend it enough.

Thank you to Carla for making our day so perfect and being on hand to support from booking, right the way through to days after.

I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a venue with views of Welsh countryside, the flexibility to make it into whatever you could wish for and the sheer beauty. Xxx

Stunning location, stunning day

Carla and the team at Glyngynwydd were amazing. We felt so comfortable and welcomed and were able to have the day we have always dreamed of. The cottages on site meant we could spend the entire weekend with the people we care about the most and extend our celebrations further. Thank you so much for supplying the perfect location for our perfect day!

Incredible Venue

Glyngynwydd is an absolutely amazing wedding venue, and Carla is so helpful with everything! If you want a unique wedding venue which you can style exactly how you want, then Glyngynwydd is for you! It's country setting allows for some amazing photos. The cottages make getting ready in the morning stress-free as there is no need to travel to the venue! We couldn't have chosen a better venue to hold our wedding, thank you Carla!

The perfect venue

We fell in love with Glyngynwydd as a wedding venue the moment we set foot there to look at it and knew it was “the place” we wanted to get married! 2 years on it did not disappoint and was even better than we could have imagined! The ceremony area in the woods is absolutely beautiful, and so peaceful! We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect place to get married! The barns themselves are a beautiful rustic setting, and there are so many different areas for unique photos!
We also can’t thank Carla enough; having to postpone our wedding and then re-organise it during Covid-19 would have been a lot more stressful if she wasn’t there to help us - she was extremely accomodating, and excellent at helping us with all sorts of questions we had - she always left us feeling reassured at the end of a phone conversation! She was also amazing during the wedding, always on hand to help and ensure things run smoothly.
The cottages at the venue have everything you could need and want and make for a relaxing ‘getting ready’ time. We’re looking forward to going back to stay in the cottages again sometime!

Magical and breathtaking

Wow just wow. In 2021 we viewed the venue and immediately booked it for our June 2023 wedding. The planning stage, well this is where you can get a real feel for a supplier. Are they responsive? Are they helpful? Informative? Carla is that and more! Emails responded to promptly and we were grateful for the amount of times she let us revisit so we could look at lay out and plan our day. On the weekend of our wedding Carla was never far away, greeting people, answering questions, Helping with set up and there for anything we needed.
We had a bbq on the Friday, the wedding on the Saturday and breakfast on the Sunday, really made the most of the weekend. 6 weeks on and our guests are still commenting, “how did you find that place” “wow what a venue” “your wedding was the best we have ever been to” and our favourite comment from guests “we want to do it again” that’s usually what you hear from a bride and groom but we have guests saying that!

We married in the woods, sun shining through the trees, cotton pollen floating gently was absolutely stunning, One of my guests said it felt so beautiful that she felt she was in an actual fairytale setting. If you’re looking for a venue completely bespoke to you, with no hidden costs and a wedding you can plan to match exactly how you dream, this is the place for you. I’d relive our wedding weekend every weekend if I could. Carla, the venue, the beauty of it all, you won’t regret it.

Fantastic from start to finish

From the moment we finished viewing Glyngynwydd I think we knew it was where we wanted to get married. It was only the second venue we'd seen but we didn't feel the need to view anywhere else afterwards. Carla provided us with all the initial information we needed and throughout the whole process, from booking through to wedding day, she was unfailingly helpful and always quick with her responses.
I was going to describe Glyngynwydd as a blank canvas to build your wedding off, as it is largely a DIY venue in that you bring in your own suppliers (Carla has a list of suggestions if you're not sure where to start), but I feel that calling it blank would do it an injustice as it's probably better described as an incredibly beautiful backdrop that you can create your ideal day around.
For us, part of our ideal day meant having alpacas on site - an idea Carla supported with no hesitation.
We chose to have our ceremony in the woods, which is a beautiful space, but for rainy days, or those who prefer a more covered setting, there is the, equally lovely, open sided barn.
The fact that you have the venue from Friday afternoon to Sunday, meaning you don't need to rush to set up and tidy up on the Saturday, and that there is accommodation included on-site (as well as the option to pay for further accommodation in the form of pods and camping) is fab and very useful!
We truly couldn't have found somewhere better suited for our wedding and would strongly recommend visiting this wonderful venue for yourself.

Could not have asked for a better venue. The space is really well finished but perfect if you want to add your own touches. Lovely to have a space for the whole family to stay on site in the cottages too

Intimate and special

We used glyngynwydd wedding barn for our wedding and what a absolutely amazing place. Couldn’t have asked for more. The cottages are beautifully set up. Carla is absolutely amazing and supportive in every way. The indoor and outdoor ceremony set ups are beautifully presented and then you can add your personal touch. Has amazing knowledge and helped every step of the way. Would 100% recommend especially for that intimate touch

Special day made special

This venue just stood out as the one for us. The facilities, views and quirky characteristics all added to our special day. Our favourite feedback from guests was that it was different from other weddings they had been to and this is down to the venue.

Fantastic value for money, with flexibility to make the venue our own in terms of themes and decor.

Nothin was too much trouble for Carla who we found to be just as excited about the wedding as ourselves and always presented with a smile.

Wonderful Wedding Weekend

My partner and I had our civil partnership at Glyngynwydd in September 2022 - widely reviewed at the best wedding our guests had been to. Carla is amazing - so accommodating, helpful and calm. The venue is beautiful and versatile - we're not the most creative pair but we made it our own very easily. It was lovely having so many of the guests being able to stay on site, and it made the weekend even more special. Thank you Carla!

An absolutely wonderful weekend!

We arrived at Glyngynwydd on Thursday afternoon and left on Monday, staying in the cottages on site. The whole experience was amazing - excellent accommodation, wonderful setting, relaxed surroundings and luckily for us, perfect weather! Carla was the perfect host and was helpful throughout. I would definitely recommend it as a wedding venue - you can make the place your own and there’s lots of room for flexibility. Good accommodation nearby in LLanidloes too. Thank you for an unforgettable wedding weekend! The ducks and hens were a delight!!

What an amazing weekend

We booked Glyngynwydd for our wedding the same day we went to see it. As soon as we saw it we knew it was the one.
The whole venue is absolutely beautiful, in all weather! Having the freedom to really shape the whole place into exactly what we wanted for our wedding was amazing.
Nothing was too much trouble for Carla who helped us every step of the way in the lead up to the big day, and for the whole weekend! Every time we visited, Carla made us feel completely at ease - it was like going to visit a friend.
The lovely weather meant we could get married up in the woodlands which was truly spectacular! Our guests were blown away with how stunning the whole place was!
If you’re thinking about getting married here - do it! Thank you so much Carla for allowing us to take over for the weekend and helping us to make our wedding amazing.
