Are there any local places you’d recommend I visit while I’m in town?

It is our wish that we could invite all of our friends and family to the reception but this just isn't possible.  So here are some great places to visit in Cardiff whilst you are here.  For example, Cardiff Castle is opposite the Church! For more ideas, click here.  

Can I bring a plus one?

We would love to accommodate a plus one for you but unfortunately this is not possible.  We have tried to make sure that you know at least one other person and all of our guests are wonderful, friendly people so you can be rest assured you will have company on the day.  

Can I bring my children?

No. A small number of children will be attending but they are close family members. It is our hope that everyone can let their hair down & relax!

Yes.  We want to cater for all.  Please make it very clear on your RSVP whether you have any allergies or dietary requirements.  The caterers are wonderful and will accommodate any specific dietary requirements.

What time will the food be served at Pencoed?

A three course wedding breakfast will be served at approximately 15:45, we therefore recommend eating a big breakfast!


An evening buffet will be served at around 20:30.    



Can I bring my own alcohol to the wedding reception?

 No.  Pencoed House Estate are pulling out all the stops to make the reception a memorable one for all of our guests.  The food will be excellent, the service top class and the atmosphere and entertainment will be wonderful.  In order to make this a pleasant experience for all they have a strict policy against guests bringing their own alcohol to the reception.  All of our guests are awesome so we are not worried about this at all but if anyone is caught with alcohol you will be asked to leave by Pencoed staff.  They do have their own bar though so you won't be thirsty!
