A white summer wedding at Bodnant Welsh Food Centre
Updated: Jan 23, 2020
Angharad & Stephen's day at Bodnant Welsh Foods is one of the sweetest, emotional days, bursting with love that was so obvious, it didn't matter that I couldn't understand a word of what was being said for most of the day, as almost all of the civil ceremony and speeches were in Welsh!
It's the first time I've been down to Bodnant, and I was pleasantly surprised. Set in a stunning location, the Bodnant Welsh Food centre offers a different and intimate venue. Created from 18th Century farm buildings, surrounded by farmlands, and overlooking the picturesque Conwy valley, Bodnant provides the perfect setting for a wedding.
With grounds that make a beautiful setting for photography, and close access to Bodnant Gardens, Bodnant truly offers an essence of Welsh magic.
The Furnace Farmhouse next door is perfect for bridal prep - with Angharad and her bridesmaids making use of its bright airy rooms for their hair & makeup, while Stephen got ready with the boys over in nearby Betws y Coed.
The Pochin room was set up for the ceremony, another light and airy space with gorgeous views over the Conwy Estuary. After the ceremony we headed out Nextdoor to Bodnant Gardens, where Stephen had arranged access for us to photograph in the grounds. Its a beautiful setting and it was so lovely to walk through with everyone congratulating the newlyweds - though we'd managed to be there on one of the hottest days of the year, and it wasn't long before we needed to head back for water and shade! When we arrived back the guests were seated in the Hayloft restaurant for a meal made from fresh farm foods that are all produced on site. (I got a veggie wellington which was amazinggg!!) Followed by speeches, which, not speaking a word of Welsh I was only occasionally able to understand, but the laughter and tears were plenty <3
