Wonderful Garden Venue
Elegant and Enchanting
The Inn offers a Spanish garden, where the wedding vows were exchanged. It is a beautiful timepiece surrounded by well manicured flower beds, highlighted with arrangements of seasonal flowers.
The reception was held under a large tent on the sprawling estate, near the Spanish garden, overlooking a large pond with the Inn in the background. The grounds are absolutely breathtaking!
We rented all of the lovely decoratived Inn rooms for the bride and groom, wedding party and immediate family members. Each room is lavishly decorated. The Innkeeper's attention to detail is impeccable, all the way down to ironed bed linens.
The entire experience from start to finish was wonderful. The owners and staff were professional, accommodating, incredibly friendly, and truly a pleasure to work with. Every aspect of the day went as planned; a true testament to their hard work.
We highly recommend the Gwyn Careg Inn for a wedding venue!
