After the festive events are over, January is the month to kick off the planning of your dream wedding - we look forward to meeting some new faces at our Hotel and Marquee viewing evening on Saturday 10th January 2015, to offer those helpful hints and tips (see November's entry below)

We'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

November 2014:

We are now pleased to announce that the confirmed date for our annual Hotel and Marquee viewing evening will be on SATURDAY 10th JANUARY 2015, between 4.00 - 8.00 pm.

Please join us and a selection of our trusted suppliers, who will include: County Marquee, Love Lily, Platinum Sounds, Cambria String Quartet, White Crafts, Tiers and Tiaras and more.

October 2014:

We are blessed with acres of land, perfectly manicured lawns and our traditional lawn games are hugely popular – if you’d like to borrow our giant jenga or croquet set, just let us know.  If you have children (or adults!) attending who will need entertaining during the day then bouncy castles, bungee runs, bucking broncos and carousels are all great fun, or how about an NNEB qualified nanny to babysit or qualified children’s entertainers?

To complete your celebration we can book a wide variety of evening entertainment, from our resident DJ to a live band, magicians to fun casinos, we can ensure your evening reception provides a memorable time for young and old.  To make your evening go off with a real bang, our secluded setting allows us to arrange a spectacular finale to the party - a surprise, professionally controlled firework display set off over the lake, high into the sky, will ensure that your big day is one that nobody will ever forget!

If outdoor pursuits or activities are more your thing, then let us organise a morning of them to keep you and your guests entertained – either before the wedding, or for the morning after.  Archery, clay pigeon shooting, horse riding, golf and fishing are all either available within the hotel grounds, or very nearby.

For those wishing to guard against the infamous Welsh weather, a beautiful, romantically lit lean-to marquee which covers the full length of our south facing terrace can be provided, ensuring you and your guests have the opportunity to enjoy the spectacular scenery even if the weather is inclement.

 

 

September 2014:

Weddings are often a lot about the food and drink consumed on the day. Here at Llansantffraed Court we try to offer a wide selection of food and drink, to suit all needs and requirements.

A little something upon your guest's arrival or after the ceremony can go down well - a glass of bubbles and a selection of canapes? We offer a selection of 6 or 8 canapes, which vary from hot and cold and include vegetarian, meat and fish options.

For the wedding breakfast we do everything from a traditional 4 course sit down wedding breakfast to an informal hog roast where guests can help themselves to the offerings. As well as this there is also the option for a tasting menu for more intimate weddings - where you could have up to a staggering 9 courses with matched wines!

If you have more guests arriving in the evening, during the evening reception we have various options; from a selection of meats and cheese to a 14 item finger buffet. If going with the meat and cheeses a glass of port often goes down well!

If you have any questions or queries about any of the above please contact jemma@llch.co.uk
