Questions about holding your wedding at the Glen-Yr-Afon House Hotel

These are some of the frequently asked questions. Please contact our Wedding Coordinator for a personal response to any questions you have. We are here to help....

Can we provisionally hold a date for our wedding?    
We would be delighted to hold a date provisionally for you for 14 days.

What deposit is payable when we are ready to confirm?  
To process your booking we require a £500.00 non refundable deposit.  You will be required to sign our terms and conditions prior to final confirmation of your booking being sent.

How far in advance can we book? 
We take booking up to three years in advance so enquire early particularly if you are interested in summer weekend dates.

Can we bring my own wines and champagnes?  
Yes - corkage is payable at the rates detailed in our Wedding Brochure.  Please also refer to our Terms and Conditions. 

Can we have fireworks at our wedding?     
Yes you can but, for health and safety reasons, this has to be arranged through the Hotel with our approved supplier.  Regrettably we cannot allow you to arrange / bring your own.

Can we hold bedrooms for our guests?    
Yes.  At the time your booking is confirmed, we are happy to hold bedrooms in the Hotel for your guests until six weeks prior to your wedding. 

Can we have Chinese Lanterns ?         
Sorry Chinese Lanterns are not permitted within the Hotel grounds.

Can we have confetti at our wedding
Yes of course.  Confetti is permitted in the Hotel grounds.

Can we choose our menu?
Yes.  You choose any three starters, a main course (and a vegetarian option), and two desserts from any of the choices listed in our Wedding Brochure.  Your guests then get to choose from these on the day (no pre-order required!

Are fresh flowers included in the wedding package?
Yes. All flowers offered for any of our wedding packages are fresh and ordered to match your colour theme.  See our page on Wedding Flowers for the options available.        

Is your venue licensed to carry out civil wedding ceremonies?
Yes, we have two rooms licensed for marriage ceremonies.  The library is licensed for up to 30 guests (including Bride and Groom) and the Ballroom is licensed for up to 150 guests.

Will ours be the only wedding at your venue on our wedding day?
We host only one wedding celebration per day so you can be assured that you are the only bride and groom here on your special day! Whilst we only have one wedding celebration here on any particular day, the Restaurant and Library areas may be used for private dinner parties unless you request Exclusive Use (supplement will be charged).
