Ever since we stayed at Pentre Mawr in 2009, Amy (the Wife) had wanted to get married there, and on the weekend of 27/12/13, we had the honour of being Bre & Graham’s first wedding at Pentre Mawr.
Now for the review:
"From the first contact with Bre in June 2013, nothing was too much trouble, and within two weeks the Wedding was booked for December that year! After numerous phonecalls, emails, and a couple of visits, Bre and Graham made everything so easy and would help in any way possible, from ideas for the ceremony room, to recommending fantastic local wedding suppliers. The help Amy received from Bre was fantastic, as she has many years experience and fantastic insight!
We arrived for the weekend of the Wedding on Friday 27th December 2013. We had 30 guests, who all arrived with different and/or difficult needs – everything was catered for, starting with a golf buggy ride on arrival to the house for the old, infirm (or just plain lazy!) All guests were welcomed with tea, coffee, bucks fizz and home-made cake and scones and plenty of friendly banter, which started off the weekend perfectly and made everyone feel at home. Guests were then driven by golf buggy to their room to get ready for dinner – which in itself was a masterclass in organisation and service, everyone raved about this fantastically presented and fabulous tasting meal, and left the table fit to burst. We retired, thoroughly contented, to our rooms to enjoy the luxury facilities on offer, including the hot tubs (in December!). This is where Bride and Groom parted ways, and I enjoyed an impromptu Stag Night (oooops!!)
On the day of the wedding (sorry Brides, this is from the Groom’s perspective, as this is the part where you will do absolutely nothing, and have Bre and the gang spoil you rotten – Breakfast and Fizz in bed with Mum and Bridesmaids)!
After a fantastic breakfast, the guests were left to their own devices to again enjoy the facilities on offer – football with the Dog’s, a stroll to enjoy the local views, a soothing soak in the hot tub, and spending an hour or so with Storm and Frank, who brought along falconer Richard (this experience was booked with Richard in advance, in order to break up the day for our guests, and to keep them out of our hair! Well worth every penny, as it added to the memories for our guests to take away from our Big Day). I had decided to decorate the table’s and marquee myself, and this is where the wonderful Lisa kept me calm for a few hours before the wedding, while she was setting up the tables for the wedding breakfast (thank you Lisa!).
We had the ceremony in the Blue Room in the house which had been beautifully arranged by the Pentre Mawr gang. The Flowers for Bride, bridesmaids and buttonholes were created by Haf, and were stunning

The guests were escorted to the gallery while Steve (our photographer – www.mikeandstevemainstone.com ) did a fantastic job with the minimum of fuss. On our way to the gallery, we were met by a couple of gatecrashers – Storm and Richard – what a wonderful surprise for the new wife, who had missed them earlier in the day.
We then went to the Gallery to be greeted by our guests, enjoying more fizz and delicious canapés served by the lovely Beth and Connor (thank you to the wonderful Beth for letting me and the Best Man hide in the corner un-interrupted to eat most of them)! We then sat down to enjoy more fantastically prepared food, during which we were entertained by the amazing Taylormade www.taylormadeacoustic.com) who played an acoustic set during the meal. They then played two sets of more up-beat music to keep the guests dancing the night away.
The following morning, everyone enjoyed a late breakfast/brunch, served buffet style, whilst re-living some of the wonderful moments from the day before.
All in all, we had the most amazing Wedding Weekend, we could not have hoped for anything better. If you want a fantastic wedding without stress, worry or hassle, to feel as comfortable as being in your own home and to be treated like part of the family, and to have a few days that you and all of your guests will remember forever, Pentre Mawr Country House is the place to choose.
Thank you to Bre, Graham, Connor, Beth, Lisa and the Gang at Pentre Mawr for a lifetime of happy memories."
