It’s one you’ve dreamt of since childhood, now open your eyes and let’s make it real on your wedding day at Château Rhianfa.
A place where classic perfection meets fairytale dreams, open your eyes and find that it’s real at Château Rhianfa in Anglesey. We’ve taken our Welsh roots, our enchanting location and the magnificent architecture of our Grade ll-listed hotel and made the magic come alive. Are you ready? Watch – keep your eyes on our French-style Château as we turn that fantasy into reality on your dream wedding day.
The big day dawns
It's the day you've imagined all your life, so there's no time for getting cold feet the night before and by that we mean prior to tucking yourself into one of our exquisitely-designed, luxuriously comfy bedrooms. With 16 to choose from, each with its own unique character and charming personality, arrive a few days before with the wedding party in tow and immerse yourself in the tranquility of our surroundings as we help you prepare for the big day. Get even closer to our enchanting grounds and stay in one of our three enchanting self-catering cottages that look out over the Menai Strait, with a breathtaking backdrop of Snowdonia. This is a great location for the groom and his ushers the night before the big day; leave the bride and her family to live the fairytale dream in the Château, and take advantage of the calming ambience of these idyllic surroundings to write those last-minute vows (don't worry, we won't tell the bride).
Say 'I do'
Your dream wedding day dawns but before we begin, let's pick the perfect space to create the most magical ceremony possible - you are saying "I do" after all, it's one of the most important moments in your life - let's make it memorable. Dotted around the magnificent architecture of our enchanting French-style Château are a collection of beautifully-designed rooms that are both exquisite and intimate, or lavish and grand. Each with their own unique charm and alluring character with an exciting history that lies behind every nook and cranny (and the odd turret), choose a room that's as individual as you are. Opt for a big white fairytale wedding and host it in the grand splendour of The Banqueting Hall. Licensed for 80 guests this striking room opens up onto the terrace with views that will bring even more memories to your wedding album. For a more intimate affair, both The Drawing Room and The Music Room are stunning locations for up to 40 guests with a historic charm and alluring character that will enchant everyone around you. Both are located at the heart of the Château with stunning views of the Menai Strait and the peaks of Snowdonia - another one for the wedding album!
The Wedding Breakfast
Host a showstopper reception in a truly unique setting that can be completely exclusive to you - it's your wedding day, why share it with anyone else? We have an elegant choice of beautiful locations within the magnificent architecture of our Grade II-listed Château. Its French-style and Welsh roots, alongside views looking across the Menai Strait and the mountains of Snowdonia, provides an impressive backdrop for those all-important wedding shots. At Château Rhianfa, each of our three function rooms can create the perfect ambience to fit your individual requirements, turning the ceremony room into the perfect reception in just a wave of our wand. During the summer months, our elegant terrace offers uninterrupted views over the water and Snowdonia mountain range - a great spot for hosting a drinks reception. Celebrate in the classic elegance of The Drawing Room or the historic charm of The Music Room, or go all out in the grand splendour of The Banqueting Hall. Each one offers an awe-inspiring setting for a sumptuous Wedding Breakfast, served with your own personal stamp on it.
Simply tell us what you want and we will make it happen with one of Chef's tailor-made menus to match. He has a bit of magic of his own up his apron, using his innovative ideas to create a menu with passion and serve it with flair to deliver an indulging wedding feast to tantalise the tastebuds. Come and meet him, sample his food, talk local ingredients, discover a little more about our Welsh roots, even taste a few of them, and together create a menu that’s personal to you and tailored to your palate – after all, this is one day when it’s all about you, so let's make it!
