Magical weddings at Bryngarw House

If you are asking yourself why a magician would be writing a blog about a particular wedding venue, you may think that I have been paid or sponsored to do this. That is absolutely not the case!

I am writing this blog simply because I love performing at weddings in Bryngarw House and because I have seen first hand, the amazing all round service and attention to detail that the wonderful staff provide (which I will discuss further in this post). I have also included an exclusive offer, for happy couples getting married at Bryngarw in 2018/19.

A little bit of history

The beautiful Bryngarw House is situated within the 120 acre country park, situated on the west bank of the afon garw, at the mouth of the Garw Valley in Bridgend County Borough. The country park is very accessible; it is only a five minute drive from M4 junction 36.

Bryngarw House was built in the 15th century and was the property of a coal owning family and was bought in 1959 by the Ogwr & Garw district council who used it initially as accommodation for council employees.

For the next 30 or so years, Bridgend County Borough Council continued to develop the park. In 1993 European funding was received to transform Bryngarw House into a hotel with 19 bedrooms and, with the addition of the conservatory, a restaurant. It was granted a license to hold weddings and became a popular venue for conferences and seminars.

Bryngarw House offers a truly beautiful combination of a historical venue with real character, coupled with very modern aspects (such as the marquee) and interior design, which give the venue everything a happy couple could want when looking at potential wedding venues. Recent refurbishments have improved the venue even more and have taken it, I believe, to the next level.

As a professional magician in Cardiff, South Wales and the UK, I perform at upwards of thirty weddings per year at all different types of venues. I can honestly say that if I was getting married, Bryngarw House would genuinely be my first choice, (and no, they are not paying me to say this).

What's so great about Bryngarw?

The answer is simply 'lots'. For the purpose of this blog, I will differentiate between the general reasons why Bryngarw House is great and the reasons why it is a superb venue for a wedding magician to perform in.

In general.....

I can think of so many things, but here are my top five in no particular order

1. The venue is beautiful, has character but a very modern feel

2. The food looks and tastes amazing

3. It is very accessible - just five minute drive from the M4

4. I can not praise the staff enough! I have seen and experienced them 'go out of their way' to help and assist people, they are always friendly and nothing is to much trouble.
