Wedding party at Pistyll Rhaeadr

Our intention is to help you create a meaningful and memorable day at Pistyll Rhaeadr. We invite you to come and visit us to discuss your ceremony plans.

The waterfall, with a 240ft drop, is the highest in Wales, surrounded by breathtaking scenery with sheer cliffs and woods to either side.

At the foot of the waterfall is Tan y Pistyll, meaning 'little house under the waterfall', which now houses a café and B&B/self-contained apartment. We have a licence to enable civil weddings and partnerships to be conducted at Pistyll Rhaeadr.

The ceremony usually takes place at the Prayer Lodge set in the lower garden, overlooking the river with the magnificent waterfall in the background. Your guests gather in the Prayer Lodge garden around you, to form an intimate setting for your wedding ceremony. As a ceremony location it is truly a unique and special place, allowing and supporting a deep connection between you as you exchange vows.

It is also possible to arrange a Celtic Blessing or Hand-fasting ceremony. This place has been used by many in the past as a place to come for a blessing after a civil ceremony. The hand-fasting would be held in the privacy of the Prayer Lodge and its garden. It can also include following the old custom of planting a tree in remembrance and as a gift to this place. The hand-fasting and/or tree planting can be added to a civil ceremony or held on its own.

It is a gift to have your ceremony here, for your love for each other to be witnessed and blessed by the Spirit of Nature - the Waterfall's presence. There is an opportunity for you and your guests to embrace this throughout the celebration, to be touched by the presence of the waterfall.

After the ceremony we can arrange a buffet reception in the lower garden marquee. We can cater for up to 60 guests with a choice of menus. During winter months the tearoom can be reserved for your reception. For an evening reception/function we can recommend local hotels.

Within the Prayer Lodge, we can offer simple accommodation for you following your ceremony.

You can decorate the Prayer Lodge beforehand with flowers. Ceremonies can be held here between 11am and 3pm. The Prayer Lodge area and garden, if having a reception, are for your sole use on the day of your ceremony until 5pm. During holiday periods (Easter, May Bank Holiday week and school summer holidays) we are able to have ceremonies from Mondays to Fridays. At other times we have ceremonies from Mondays through to Saturdays.
