Chateau Rhianfa, Anglesey in Wales

Fairy Tale Castle

The beautiful French inspired Chateau was built in 1849 by Sir John Hay Williams, as a gift of love for his wife, Lady Sarah. Today it is an historic boutique hotel with everything you could want for, and a choice of different wedding packages and seasonal offers throughout the year to make it more affordable than you might at first think.

    Such a gorgeous venue. My partner and I have been looking at castle weddings in the UK but I think we’re leaning more towards a country home venue instead.
