All our family and friends were so impressed and we had a wonderful day. Even the people we had booked for photographs, video, cars etc., all had such good things to say about the Glen-Yr-Afon.  We cannot thank you enough for your excellent wedding planning and support and the staff at the Glen-Yr-Afon for making such an important day in our lives, so special.  We would not hesitate to recommend the Glen-Yr-Afon. You very much deserve winning such a presigious award.  Kind regards, Joanna Richards'
