The Walled Garden

Tangled vines and knotted roses spill over trellises. Delicate wildflowers drip with colors and scent. Inspired by the nostalgia of The Secret Garden and the beauty of Aberglasney, the garden has been lovingly restored to balance natural wildness and careful cultivation. Historic stone walls encircle the garden, providing a sense of seclusion and intimacy.

 

The Orangery

A space drenched in natural sunlight, the Orangery creates poetic drama with its glass roof and grape vines. Expansive windows frame picturesque views of the surrounding gardens. The interplay of light and shadow creates a serene but textured atmosphere. A space for wedding brunches and receptions, it seats 35 for dining and 45 for ceremonies. Entwining the indoors with the outdoors, it’s the perfect setting to create a meandering wedding aisle with rambling wild blooms.

The Summer House

Featuring open walls that invite the gentle breeze and warm sunlight to permeate, the Summer House creates an airy atmosphere. Inside, cozy seating arrangements and soft furnishings provide a comfortable respite, while outside, a sun-drenched terrace offers panoramic views of the rolling countryside. Whether used as a hideaway or a welcoming space for small gatherings, the Summer House evokes the essence of a European summer.

The Cellar Bar

The Cellar Bar exudes air infused with the rich aroma of aged oak and fine spirits. Exposed brick walls and low ceilings adorned with wrought iron fixtures create a cozy atmosphere. Illuminated by soft candlelight, the bar invites guests to enjoy a curated selection of wines, craft beers, and artisanal cocktails. Whether savoring a quiet moment alone or mingling with friends, the Cellar Bar can serve as an ideal setting with its rustic accents for a pre-event night.

The Wedding

The Pre-Wedding Dinner

Hold a pre-wedding dinner nestled beneath ancient trees, where a long, winding table weaves through a canopy that dances with dappled light and shadow. As dusk falls, fairy lights strewn across the ground contrast beautifully with the gnarled, twisted branches above. Etched with the stories of centuries, nature sets an ambiance of timeless strength and serene beauty.

The Ceremony

Garthmyl’s circular gardens are a property highlight, with wild blooms sprouting in circular formations. For the ceremony, dot the circular shapes with garden chairs and accentuate them with additional rambling blooms to create a wedding aisle. To tie the whole setting together, craft a sculptural wedding arch that appears naturally lifted from the ground, adorned with delicate flowers and wild grasses.

The Aperitivo Hour

Utilize the manor house’s red brick hues as a backdrop for a laid-back aperitivo hour. With its warm and inviting tones, it creates the perfect atmosphere for guests to unwind into the evening.

The Reception

Utilize Garthmyl’s custom marquee, adorned with wisps of luxurious drapery spilling from the ceilings, to create a dramatic tablescape with oversized tablecloths. Contrast the softness with rich textures and tones. Accentuate the scene with a cascading champagne tower to add opulence to the textured setting.
