Why Pentre Mawr Country House will always be a pet-friendly wedding venue!

On your wedding day, you want to be surrounded by the people who mean the most to you. If you have a pet, it really is part of the family, and we know that one of the most important days of your life should include your four-legged best friends!

Pentre Mawr Country House has a longstanding family history of animal lovers. Horses, cats, dogs (and perhaps even a couple of deer!) have always been at the heart of this beautiful estate, and this has continued into its development into a wedding venue. From ring-bearers to best men, we have helped include countless pets into our couples’ weddings. And for couples who simply want to accommodate their guests’ animals while they dance the night away, all of our rooms are pet-friendly.  

“Will be your best friend for a few polos…”

It has been our pleasure to host some of the loveliest furry-friends at Pentre Mawr Country House. If you’re looking for a cuteness overload, look no further than these gorgeous pet pictures from past Pentre weddings. And if you’re looking for a pet-friendly wedding venue, please email us on info@pentremawrcountryhouse.co.uk.

Lots of dogs to accommodate at your wedding? How about a doggy-creche!

This blog post is made in loving memory of our old girl Millie who sadly left us in January this year at the age of 17. We miss you and your stubbornness lots. X

Open day – Sunday 7th April 12pm – 4pm

We’ve had a few changes here at Pentre Mawr Country House recently and we would love to show you what we’ve been up to.

With that in mind, we’ve decided to have an open day (not a Wedding Fair) on 7th of April 2019 from 12pm till 4pm so that you can have a look around. If you’re getting married with us or thinking of getting married with us, the team would love to meet and greet you on Sunday with a glass of bubbles!

As you may be aware, there has recently been a change in the law, and it will soon be possible to get married outside. With that in mind, we’re in the process of creating a beautiful area overlooking the Ha-ha (infinity lawn) for outdoor weddings. We will also be showcasing our bigger and better wedding marquee, rustic reception barns and magical walled garden.

Come and see what we have in store for your Wedding Day. We really look forward to seeing you on 7th of April!

The Night Before You Say ‘I do’…

The night before the wedding is an exciting time for any soon-to-be newlyweds. So why not make the celebrations last as long as possible and have a “party before the party”? A rehearsal (or family and friends) dinner is the perfect opportunity for the bride and groom’s nearest and dearest to break the ice before the hustle and bustle of the big day.  

Pentre Mawr couples always come back to us and comment on how happy they are that they had the opportunity to mingle as a combined family in a relaxed environment at their rehearsal dinner. Plus, it gives any out-of-town guests some time to settle in and appreciate our grounds which lie in an area of outstanding natural beauty. 

Let us take the worry out of your ‘night before’ plans with our beautiful dining rooms and candlelit tables curated by your expert hosts. Bre and Graham have decades of experience in hospitality, so you are most certainly in safe hands. Here at Pentre Mawr, all of our food is cooked to order and whenever possible is sourced locally and seasonally. We can cater for a variety of dietary requests including vegetarian and gluten free. 

Not yet convinced? Come and have a look at what Pentre Mawr Country House has to offer you for your rehearsal dinner, and your entire Wedding Celebration. We’d love to hear from you. Call us on 01824 790 732 or email us on info@pentremawrcountryhouse.co.uk

Time To Get Down on Bended Knee- Why You Shouldn’t Overlook A Winter Wedding

Pentre Mawr in the Snow

Here at Pentre Mawr we believe that Christmas truly is the most romantic time of year.  Twinkly lights, frosty mornings and roaring fires are the perfect backdrop for a Winter Wonderland. If  this festive season is the time that you and your significant other decide to tie the knot or a sparkling diamond was awaiting you by the tree on Christmas morning, then consider this time of year for your wedding day. 

The Pentre Mawr Wreath on our Front Door.

The Christmas period can be overlooked for weddings, but we cannot think of a more idyllic setting in which to say “I do”, other than underneath the mistletoe. It’s the season for family reunions and festive tipples, two key wedding ingredients. 

We love to deck the halls with boughs of holly here at Pentre Mawr, so you can expect wonderful wreaths with frosted tips, glowing trees and mulled wine aplenty! We offer a variety of reception rooms to suit your needs (and all weather conditions!).

Pentre Mawr Wedding Barn in all it’s Christmas finery!

So let us accommodate your Christmas wedding dreams. We’re ready to show you the perfect place to start your wedding planning.  Just give us a quick ring or drop us an email and we’ll put the kettle on!
