Favourite North Wales Wedding Venues
Being a wedding photographer in North Wales is awesome; we’re properly spoilt for choice when it comes to beauty spots and North Wales is fast becoming a well-known hotspot for thrill-seekers (Zip World, anyone?). It really comes as no surprise at all that North Wales has some of the most beautiful wedding venues featuring some of the most spectacular views! It was pretty difficult to narrow this list down but here we go – feast your eyes on some of my favourite wedding venues in North Wales.
Make no mistake – these barns lie in the most beautiful valley in Wales!!! Fine, Grade 2 listed stone buildings, surrounded by private fields with spectacular views across the lake and the icing on the cake: the big barn is licensed for weddings! You can bring your entire wedding squad to camp out in tents or vans in the private fields for an absolutely unforgettable adventure wedding. I know I would! For more pictures of this dreamy venue head over to my Llyn Gwynant Weddings page or feast your eyes on Max & Sam’s Anglo-American Llyn Gwynant Wedding or Steve & Claire’s beautiful Llyn Gwynant wedding day to see the grounds in all their glory.
Set in 100 acres of magical woodlands, Talhenbont Hall is a destination wedding venue close to the beaches and mountains of Snowdonia. Perfect for dreamy outdoor ceremonies and with endless wedding photography opportunities, this exclusive North Wales Wedding venue is luxurious and breathtakingly beautiful.
Just the most beautiful historic ceremony venue set in stunning scenery! This former church holds civil ceremonies and is also dog-friendly – happy days! Now owned by an artist who truly appreciates its outstanding beauty, Alison also owns a super romantic cottage which made is one of 10 perfect honeymoon love shacks in North Wales you’ll never want to leave! To see Geraint & Becci’s beautiful wedding day in full, head on over to A beautiful wedding at The Gwenfrewi Project.
Tucked away in the stunning Welsh countryside you’ll find the stunning Tyn Dwr Hall. It’s near to the historic town of Llangollen. And only 20 minutes from Wrexham and 45 minutes from Chester. It’s also just a 10-minute drive from my house! I always love photographing weddings here; the hall was sympathetically restored by its current owners and offers plenty of spots for gorgeous wedding portraits, both inside and out. If you want to combine rustic country charm with elegance and an air of grandeur this is the place for you.
Nestled in 9 acres of landscaped gardens and set in an elevated spot overlooking the hills of Flintshire.
Plas Hafod Country House is a lovely romantic venue with tons of gorgeous natural light streaming through the bedrooms and the ceremony room.
To see more from this gorgeous venue, head on over to this lovely spring wedding.
The Vale Country Club is definitely one of my favourite wedding venues in North Wales! It’s a beautiful little venue situated in a very picturesque spot right in the heart of the Vale of Clwyd, overlooking an area of outstanding natural beauty. It’s a very friendly and family run business with endless photo opportunities. Rustic exposed oak beams, a large inglenook, and traditional slate flooring give this stunner of a venue its character and charm. If outstanding views and friendly service are on top of your must-have list – this is the venue for you!
An ancient Welsh house situated in the foothills of beautiful Snowdonia. It is probably one of the finest Tudor houses in Wales and was formerly the ancestral home of the powerful Wynn family. By 1994, the house and garden had fallen into dereliction. Its restoration has taken over twenty years to complete and is still very much a work-in-progress by its current owners. Deeply evocative and atmospheric, the castle is an approved premise for Civil Marriages. The early Tudor ground-floor hall is available for a ceremony and champagne reception.
It’s absolutely stunning with open log fires and candles which make it very romantic and atmospheric. There are also beautiful pheasants roaming around in ten acres of breathtakingly stunning gardens – perfect for those all-important photo opportunities.
This is a ceremony venue only and so you would need to choose another venue to head to after your ceremony but with views like these and such a romantic feel to it, it’s definitely worth doing! The Quay Hotel is not far (neither is Caernarfon Castle if you fancied a super romantic picture stop off) and is another stunning wedding venue in North Wales.
The stunning Pentre Mawr Country House in the Clwydian range in Denbigh sits in over 200 acres of parkland, woods, and meadows. There’s certainly something very special about this magical place and I’m not just talking about those African safari lodges with private hot tub! The little cottage leading into the secret garden is perfect for bridal prep while your guests mingle by the main house. The walled garden is beautiful and absolutely perfect for post-ceremony drinks in the glorious North Wales sunshine. And if it’s wet – there’s a marquee at the back of the house. Turn celebrations into a wonderful weekend full of fun with your besties! Unfortunately, children under the age of 12 are not allowed. But dogs are and the grounds are just absolutely perfect for all those cute wedding dogs.
A truly romantic venue! This family-run wedding venue is basically a converted 250-year-old cattle barn. It has a stunning oak framed dining hall. And comes complete with a magnificent sandstone Railway Bridge! Their highly experienced and professional team is always on hand to offer a warm and friendly welcome. And their attention to detail is second to none! The venue was fully renovated in 2015 and has been designed from the outset specifically to host weddings & events.
This really helps to create an easy, stress-free atmosphere for your celebrations. The Old Barn is now fully refurbished and really creates the most wonderfully cosy and romantic atmosphere. Built around the late 1700s its original use was to store cattle. The main entertaining areas are situated close to each other. That really adds to the occasion and helps to create that all-important party vibe! They have a passionate and highly experienced in-house catering team on hand to help create the perfect wedding food. And they also have 2 in-house, fully qualified mixologists who are happy to create your own personalised cocktail menu for the day!
With unrivalled views across the lush Welsh countryside, this cosy pub offers the perfect setting for small and intimate weddings. Grab a drink with your nearest & dearest and chill out in the beautiful pub garden or enjoy a roaring fire inside. The Mulberry Inn is only a 5 mile, scenic drive from the A483 in Llangollen and easily one of the most scenic, relaxed and dog-friendly wedding venues in North Wales.
