Portmeirion, Wales

As mentioned in my previous post I am adding Portmeirion to You + Me because we (my Husband & I) just love it and it is a beautiful venue.

Portmeirion is in Gwynedd, North Wales on the estuary of the River Dwyryd.  The village is supposed to be inspired by the Mediterranean.  Sir Bertram Clough Williams-Ellis, the designer, once said of the Italian village Portofino “How should I not have fallen for Portofino? Indeed its image remained with me as an almost perfect example of the man-made adornment and use of an exquisite site.”  For those of you who are *coughs* young enough to remember it was used as the set in the TV series The Prisoner.

It would make the most amazing backdrop for any wedding.  Portmeirion have put some some packages together to give you an idea of what the costs might be.  However there are various rooms available that can hold from 12 guests up to 100 for the ceremony.  You also have two room options for dining depending on your guest numbers.  Either way you’ll be in superb Art Deco surroundings.

In terms of where to stay you and your guests are spoilt for choice.  You can stay in the Hotel Portmeirion where you have your ceremony and reception, there are fifteen self catering cottages in Portmeirion or for a bit of Lord and Lady you can stay in Castell Deudraeth which is just a short five  minute walk away.
