5 Unique Rustic Wedding Venues in Wales
  • With rolling countryside as far as the eye can see, historic barns, and picturesque landscapes, Wales is the ideal location for rustic wedding. Look for somewhere that is romantically secluded, but still convenient for guests to reach, or offers overnight accommodation so they don't need to navigate their way home in the dark.


    Here we take a look at some of the more unusual wedding venues the country has to offer.


    Camping At Manorafon

    Cold at night

    Manorafon is set in a wooded valley, just a short distance from Penbryn beach, but surrounded by trees to give it a secluded feel. For a truly rustic experience select the luxury camping option. Your wedding will be held in a converted Dutch barn, with a huge canvas marquee on the main lawn, which can take between 40-60 people. The wedding lasts all weekend as you have exclusive use of the venue for two days. A two-course meal is provided on the wedding day.



    The sister site, Fforest, is a 200 acre campsite with space for up to 150 guests. With a relaxed, informal vibe, the giant hat tipis are an unusual boho wedding reception venue. The wedding breakfast is made from local and home-grown ingredients.



    Rural Barn

    Glangrwyney Court

    The 18th century barn at Glangrwyney Court, Powys, is nestled in Crickhowell, between the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons. Warm, intimate and elegant, this makes a cosy wedding venue for the winter months. Crickhowell is a pretty and quaint little traditional Welsh town, which is my (Sian-Louise of Dust and Things) hometown!


    If you prefer a more traditional marriage ceremony, there are a number of village churches nearby, where you can exchange vows, (such as St Edmunds in Crickhowell or St Cadoc, Llangattock) before heading to Glangrwyney Court for the reception.


    A marquee in the gardens can accommodate up to 200 guests, making it the ideal place for a large outdoor party. You can even have a barbeque for your wedding breakfast and there are 33 acres of parkland to explore.



    All Aboard

    Patrick Stubbs 

    Set in the picturesque Mid-Wales countryside, the Talyllyn Railway runs from Tywyn to Abergynolwyn and Nant Gwernol. The tea room at Abergynolwyn Station is available for civil marriage ceremonies. You and your guests can arrive aboard the narrow-gauge steam train, and after the ceremony, the train will take you back to the station of your choosing. Dolgoch Falls Hotel is on the line and makes an ideal venue for your reception. 


    Artistic Venue

    Globe at Hay

    The Globe At Hay is a live arts venue within an 18th century Methodist chapel. The venue is available for weddings, and is the ideal place for a boho, art-inspired day. There are a choice of four designated areas: The Main Hall Upper Gallery, Lower Gallery and the Globe Field, enabling you to choose a space that best reflects your party size and vibe.


    Rustic Catering

    Sparkle and Sprint

    For a rustic wedding breakfast, take a look at The Sticky Pig - Hog Roast Company, providers of spit-roast pork. Their professional chefs will cater at your wedding, bringing their own homemade chutneys, sauces, and flavoured bread rolls. Their free range pork is basted with a secret cider recipe, then perfectly slow roasted. The company is based in Ceredigion and will travel up to 50 miles.

    Whichever venue you choose, give your rustic wedding the perfect finishing touches with our beautiful decorations and favours.
