    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!

    A fantastic venue for a wonderful wedding.

    At Glyngynwydd, I went from a worried and stressed bride's mother to an ecstatic, proud and happy one. If you are reading this and considering booking a wedding there, consider and hesitate no more - go ahead and book Glyngynwydd for its rustic charm and make your day your very own. Many guests stayed on the site for the weekend, some in the cottages and a others in bell tents which were put up ready for them. I dreaded the chore of decorating the barns on Friday evening but it turned out to be a fun social event for friends and family to meet and get to know one another the night before the wedding, with everyone enjoying a barbecue around an open fire by the end. There was a relaxed atmosphere on Saturday morning as everyone geared up for the main event. My daughter's wedding was wonderful, enjoyed by one and all - young and old, able-bodied and disabled alike. It had a street food vibe with pizzas for early afternoon, fish & chips followed by dessert for the main reception and Venezuelan arepas for late-night revellers. Clearing up on Sunday morning wasn't a chore either because Carla, the owner, had found elves to do the hard work for us while we were all asleep. It was a wedding both memorable and magical which far exceeded all expectations. Words are not enough to describe the time we all had and the beautiful memories the bride and groom have of their special day. A visit to the site may give an insight but won't be a true reflection of the uniqueness and individuality of the venue which makes Glyngynwydd weddings so special. Can I really only award them 5 stars? They deserve five times five stars! Why was I such a worried and stressed bride's mother? I can't wait to re-live that wonderful day when we get the photos and I hope they show Glyngynwydd in all its glory. Thank you, Carla and family. for all you did in the run-up to the wedding, on the day and afterwards.

    Proud parent ❤️

    Our daughter Soph, married Lee in such a perfect location.
    Carla helped make the day super special with her calm & chilled out nature. Nothing was too much trouble.
    Staying on site meant we could meet & get to know the other guests, or simply have a quiet moment within the grounds.
    Cottages are well equipped & we even got to enjoy some fresh eggs laid by the chickens that morning 🐔
    The day went without a hitch & we ended it with a camp fire 🔥
    Thanks Carla for helping make our baby girls day so special ❤️

    Perfect day

    Carla the owner was simply amazing. She responded to us for every email and phonecall quickly. She let us visit as needed pre-wedding and on the day she has magic supplies to fix everything, loved her as much as the ethereal setting.

    Lidster Wedding

    My husband and I both wanted a country wedding surrounded by fields and peacefulness. The first place we viewed was Glyngynwydd cottages and that was the only place we viewed! We booked it the same day as we knew it was perfect! Not only could we celebrate the whole day there (as you can legally get married there) but also sleep there the night before and on the day of the wedding so no need to organise taxis and places for people to sleep as it sleeps 20 guests! (Plus the cottages were beautifully decorated and so clean!) It's got everything you need and more! Any issues or ideas we had were soon solved with a quick email and we were always pointed in the right direction. Everyone was so helpful even the family dog, Guinness, showed his face to make us all smile.
    It rained a little on the day but the scenery wasn't ruined at all! We were even provided blow heaters for a little extra warmth for those who needed them which worked brilliantly!
    The venue is so secluded away from any passing on lookers or traffic, which made our day extra special as children could run round without anyone needing to worry!
    We look forward to going back one day to stay in on of the cottages to celebrate our anniversary.

    Amazint

    My wedding was magical and memorable in every way.

    The setting could not of been any more beautiful. Carla the host was very flexible and allowed us to host our celebration how we wanted but was on hand to help with anything if needed. This meant we did not have to stick to a timetable apart from the actual ceremony, which made it very relaxing.

    We all stayed in the cottages, those were lovely with everything you needed in them and they were very clean.

    Cannot recommend this venue highly enough. We fell in love with it the minute we viewed it, would suggest a visit to see how stunning it is.

    Thanks Carla for making our special day so special

    Glyngynwydd Wedding Barn and Cottages's reply:

    Thank you both - it was a simply lovely day and we wish you every happiness in your future life together.

    A perfect setting

    As soon as we visited the venue in Mid Wales, we knew it was perfect for us. We wanted a rustic and vintage feel to our day and the barns were ideal for this. The cottages have everything you'd need and are very clean and comfortable. It was ideal for our families to all be together before and after the wedding, which made us all feel so relaxed.
    The owners Carla and Adam were so friendly and helpful and offered great advice throughout and we were encouraged to visit whenever we wanted to.
    We couldn't have chosen anywhere nicer to get married, thank you Carla and Adam.

    Everything we wished for!!

    We held our wedding party at Glyngynwydd last October, and I cannot recommend the venue/cottages enough!

    Officially we married on the sunny beach in Mauritius- but were after a personal, intimate, but yet relaxed venue for a large celebration on our return.
    I (the Bride) born in Wales: was after a rural, relaxed but close to home venue, but my husband born on the outskirts of London needed accommodation to house close family.
    Glyngynwydd was all we could have hoped for & more.. the beautiful Mid-Wales setting, with the added weekend accommodation for friends & family was perfect. (We always love to drag out a celebration!!)
    The beautiful quaint cottages, stunning rural setting & fabulous hosting made the setting for our PERFECT wedding celebration!

    The flexibility of the beautiful rustic barns gave us an amazing opportunity to create the absolutely beautiful setting for our (possibly quite individual) celebration!

    Our hosts Carla & Adam were fantastic- and gave us all the information needed to contact any local suppliers available for our needs,

    If you are after a personal, rustic, individual wedding celebration set in the most beautiful grounds... Glyngynwydd Wedding Cottages and Barn is the perfect place!

    Sending our thanks & gratitude to Carla & Adam again... :-) x
