From the happy couple...

"We always wanted a small intimate wedding and also wanted a beautiful location. We also had to find somewhere that wasn't too far for our families to travel to but just far enough for us to feel like we'd got away from where we live. It didn't take us very long to find Lake Vyrnwy as soon as we seen the pictures of the hotel and beautiful scenery on the internet we knew this was definitely the place, we fell completely in love with it and we hadn't even been to visit the place then!!!! When I contacted the hotel to make arrangements the staff were only to happy to help. Once we'd decided on the date we wanted be married the staff arranged a date for us to go and visit the hotel and go through all our arrangements......the day came for us to visit and WOW the place was even more beautiful it was just breath taking and we knew then we had made the right choice. Going through all the arrangements with the wedding coordinator was just so easy and made us feel so relaxed about it all (as it can be a stressful time!!!) 

When the time arrived for our wedding we decided to stay over 3 days which was a great decision as we arrived on the Monday and the wedding coordinator met us and went through the plans for our wedding the next day and we didn't really have to do anything apart from turn up!!  They did everything. On the Monday evening had a gorgeous 3 course meal at the tower restaurant and our daughter thoroughly enjoyed the food too but not only that it made us feel so relaxed and prepared us for our special day the next day. The day of our wedding finally arrived we had a lovely full Welsh breakfast in our suite which was delicious, and our wedding coordinator kept in contact with us making sure we had everything we needed and letting us know when our guests had arrived.

The big moment:- As we had a small intimate wedding we got married in the Drawing Room which was a lovely size room for our wedding which when looking out of the window we seen the beautiful lake as we said our vows what a magical moment!!!! After the ceremony we had our photos taken and a lovely glass of bubbly. We decided to have our wedding meal in the Tavern so that our guests could have a choice what they would like to eat rather than a set wedding breakfast and a formal sit down meal, it was just so relaxed and care free and just what we wanted, the food from The Tavern was outstanding and our guests were really pleased with the quality of food....they all wanted more!!!!

We had the most amazing day and we couldn't of asked for more, the staff, hotel, food, scenery were just so fantastic and the staff were so friendly and would always be there to help you. We just want to thank all at Lake Vrynwy Hotel for all that they did for us to make our stay and wedding a very relaxed and memorable one and something that will stay with us forever and to be treasured. This is definitely a perfect wedding venue whether you want a small or big wedding."
