5 reasons why Cefn Tilla Court is the perfect wedding venue
There are a number of things you need to consider when choosing a venue for your wedding, including location, budget and capacity. Nestled in the Usk Valley countryside is a unique wedding venue called Cefn Tilla Court. I came across this fairly new wedding venue earlier this year and I have listed my 5 reasons below why you should consider Cefn Tilla as your wedding venue.
When I first visited Cefn Tilla Court, I met owner Robert Evans who showed my around this beautiful and unique venue and spoke to me about why their venue is different to others. The obvious USP is their flexibility. Unlike many venues, Cefn Tilla Court doesn’t have any in-house caterers which allows couples to bring in whichever caterers they choose. This gives you complete freedom and the ability to impress your guests, choose your favourite food and really make your wedding day reflect you as a couple. Cefn Tilla Court also gives you the option to have the venue for the whole weekend and not just the day of the wedding.
Cefn Tilla Court dates back to the 17th Century and was once home of Lord Raglan. The Great Hall is situated at the front of the house and boosts beautiful wood panelling and a carved historic family crest, this room licensed to perform wedding ceremonies for up to 90 people, making it an intimate and unique venue of choice, perfect for those who want to add some historic charm to their wedding day.
3. Marquee Setting
Cefn Tilla Court offers couples the best of both worlds, with a beautiful historic building for the ceremony and a marquee set in the stunning grounds for the wedding breakfast. I’ll be writing a whole other blog post on marquee weddings soon (keep your eyes peeled) but some of the benefits of a marquee wedding include accommodating a larger number of guests, Cefn Tilla can accommodate up to 200 people; you can create a unique wedding that completely reflects you and your partner from the flooring, chairs, table decor, you have a complete blank canvas to work with.
4. Beautiful Grounds
Cefn Tilla Courts is situation within 120 acres of countryside. The landscaped gardens, ornamental lily pond and front lawns provide the perfect setting for guests to enjoy a drinks reception, as well as providing lots of photo opportunities for capturing your special day.
With plenty of luxury accommodation options available, there is plenty of room for family and friends to stay on the night before and/or the night of the wedding. The ‘Boudoir’ is one of the highlights which is their signature, luxury suite. It’s the perfect setting for the bride and her bridal team to get ready on the morning of the big day and with it’s roll top bath and queen size bed gives couples a little bit of luxury on their first night as husband and wife!
