Welcome to Stradey Castle, a uniquely beautiful and secluded Grade 2* heritage home situated on the Carmarthenshire coastline overlooking the sea to Gower. Our wedding reception venue is available for exclusive hire to engaged couples that are looking for a celebration which is unique and tailor-made for them. At present, we do not have a License for Wedding Ceremonies.
When you arrive at Stradey for your wedding reception you will have private use of the House's formal reception rooms as well as the terrace garden which surrounds it. There are unrivalled opportunities for wedding photographs at Stradey, in the woodland gardens and around the lake. The magnificent staircase within the great hall of the House offers a spectacular entrance for the newly-wed bride and groom and the setting is perfect for a champagne reception. After drinks and canapes you are invited to move into a marquee (or tipi) close by for the wedding breakfast. Our marquee site is designed to cater for structures measuring up to 30' X 80' in size and can seat up to 120 people. One of our recommended marquee/tipi suppliers will be able to help you choose a marquee design that is perfect for your needs.
We have selected a choice of 2 catering partners: Strawberry Shortcake Dining and Holdens Catering, who are both experts in 'high end' marquee catering. They will share with you their passion for high quality ingredients sourced from farms on the Stradey Estate and the surrounding area. They employ teams of highly professional waiting staff and their food and service is exemplary.
Couples that book at Stradey Castle will have the option to stay in our newly redecorated Blue Room. The immensely comfortable Tester bed dates from 1850, when the House was built. We have also recently refurbished the bathroom in the brial suite, complete with a cast iron roll top bath. We reccommend your guests stay with our accommodation partners at the 4 Star Stradey Park Hotel, or at a choice of other hotels all within a short distance. The railway station is under 2 miles away.
We believe that we have something very special here to share, and see ourselves as a 'quality' venue rather than one interested in 'quantity'. We will be available to assist with all the practicalities of the wedding in the 2/3 day lead in available to you beforehand (and afterwards) and - of course - on the day itself, leaving you to focus on one another and your guests.
