Wedding Testimonials

Words from a selection of our newlyweds and their closest friends over 2018:

“Over the August bank holiday, Chris and Nicky hosted our wedding which was a pretty full on affair, given our quite outlandish requests. They couldn’t have been more accommodating. Ably helped by their superb staff, and event planner Carys, they catered for our every whim and made our guests feel as if it was a home from home. We had a fantastic weekend and this beautiful and versatile house makes the perfect getaway for a private and exclusive party. I would highly recommend this place and encourage you to talk to their team about what you’d like to do. They didn’t say No to any of our requests, however large or small. The food was also superb, thanks to their amazing chef Cornel. Thanks guys, we will be back!” – Emma

“Fabulous house, beautiful location & amazing hosts. My best friend got married there at the weekend, and it was spot on from start to finish. The owners are fascinating & delightful, the staff great at their jobs and I left feeling much more relaxed and happy then when I arrived. Always the acid test for any experience. The icing on the cake was Chris’s back story & exquisite life-time collection of art, that anyone can enjoy for free and includes an eccentric explanation by the curator himself – Chris. Try it, if you enjoy it as much as we did then it’s a no-brainer! xx” – Dan

“Dear Carys and the Castell Malgwyn crew, We’ve just touched down after an amazing honeymoon and wanted to say thank you so much for making our big day, on September 1st, so wonderful! All staff, but especially Carys, were fab and made everyone feel so welcome as well as ensuring the day ran as smoothly as possible. We had some lovely comments on the food, wine and how pretty the place is! It can’t be easy working with anxious brides but Carys was so competent and reassuring from start to finish. We really felt like she understood what we were looking for and was genuinely enthusiastic when we discussed ideas. Carys – you’re awesome, thanks for putting up with me! 😉 Finally, thank you to Chris and Nicky who were also so kind and understanding. We can’t wait to use our free stay on our first anniversary! Such a lovely, generous offer. One of our guests also bought us a voucher to use there so you can expect us for dinner sometime soon! We’ll be sure to send photos as soon as we have them. Congrats on being FABULOUS!” – El

“What an amazing find Hammet@Castell Malgwyn was for our December 2018 wedding; a real gem in West Wales!  We were planning to get married in either London or Surrey simply because we weren’t sure we wouldn’t find a venue in rural West Wales that could deliver the level of catering and accommodation that we so wanted, plus the atmosphere and interior style – how wrong we were. Hammet@Castell Malgwyn is a truly unique venue, outstanding service, incredibly stylish interiors and superb food.   We also enjoyed the added bonus of having the venue entirely to ourselves, which made the occasion all the more special as it felt as though we were at home. Working in corporate hospitality myself, I knew that I probably wouldn’t be the easiest of clients but Carys was a pleasure to work with and totally understood what I was wanting to achieve.  I felt confident leaving everything to her and wasn’t disappointed.  Our wedding was totally bespoke yet affordable, which is a rare occurrence when as soon as you mention the ‘W’ word to venues, dressmakers or caterers there seems to be several 0’s added to the invoice. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Carys and the venue for a much deserved award!” – Rachel

“[Carys] and the rest of the staff […] were brilliant at helping us organise the wedding! Nothing was too much trouble and the day went superbly! We are even coming back for our wedding anniversary next week! It is such a beautiful venue with a very helpful and dedicated team” – Nicole
