We hate Pop Up’s too, can you help us get rid of it!?
Our project is established but our site is new and although we have weddings specialists in over 60 countries it’s going to take time to get everyone on the ship. If you can’t find exactly what you want please get in touch and if you are an awesome wedding specialist or you know people you want to recommend let us know.
Known not only as the land of the mythical King Arthur, home to Camelot and more sheep than people, Wales has a plethora of notable accomplishments which make it stand out.
From the longest village name in Europe to the smallest house in Britain, to the oldest independent railway. The first ever suspension bridge, railway tunnel and steam locomotive, the largest single span glass-house, highest aqueduct and even the ONLY Bronze age copper mine open to the public IN THE WORLD!
I'm being a nerd I know but my point is to express that Wales is impressive, especially as it is tiny, at only around a fifth of the size of England, and 'I'm not going to lie to you', the Welsh have one of the most comical, yet adorable accents I have ever heard which puts their country up there as one of our favourite places to visit.
Weddings in Wales must be held in a church or a registered building and as one of Europe’s wettest countries, holding your wedding inside may be a blessing as the changeable maritime climate can throw even a last minute curve ball onto a perfect summery afternoon.
Of course, there is no shortage of beautiful places to hold your wedding indoors and they come in all shapes and sizes. From stunning manor houses, castles, stately homes, bars, pubs to purpose built or restored barns, most with beautiful decorative gardens just in case the sun does join you for your special day.
Wales has oodles of culture and tradition to explore, from Druid history to the Celtic Church to the modern day. All can be explored on your wedding day if you wish. The tying of the knot with colourful bands, an original Celtic tradition, was an important part of the ceremony we held in Wales, as was the Druid Magician who married us and the stunning, centuries old grounds in which we exchanged our vows.
Wales is a generally mountainous country with famous peeks, incredible national parks, countless areas listed for their astounding natural beauty and miles upon miles of coastline, it certainly fits the bill for beautiful destination weddings surrounded by nature and if you are willing to separate the legal aspect from the celebration side of things, all of Wales' beauty is at your fingertips.
It is easy to explore and the road system winds around the country like a gossamer maze, narrow lanes flanked by wild flowers, gnarly old trees, mountains or undulating farmland. You can easily get lost in its beauty and it is most likely you'll be stuck behind a tractor, so luckily you'll have plenty of time to enjoy it.
A Druid ceremony in Aberglasney Gardens, Carmarthenshire , Wales.
Alex wore a Welsh kilt and the Druid ceremony was truly magical, in more than one sense of the word. The gardens were stunning and the service beautiful, even the sun smiled on us. Every time I smell a freesia from now on I will be reminded of this day. Highlight – Mark’s magical ceremony and being allowed to walk through the ancient yew tunnel.
We would love to feature more weddings in Wales right here!
