Here's a sample day-by-day account of a fforest Coast wedding.
With the final preparations for your wedding day completed, you are free to welcome your guests while you relax with a drink on the terrace. Catch up with old friends, watch the sun go down, enjoy the slow-cooked, simple, local, supper we have prepared for you before retiring to the firepit for more chatting and laughter.
After an early morning fforest breakfast, your guests wander down to the beach take a breath, have a dip, a cliff walk, or be first back for the the cedar barrel sauna, while you start preparing for the day ahead.
You all gather for your wedding celebration in the vintage marquee followed by champagne and canapes on the terrace.You have time for a quick dash to Penbryn beach for the perfect wedding day photo opportunity before rejoining your guests for a decadent tea party in the big Dutch barn rounded off with speeches and toasts. Out on the terrace, there’s more chatting and relaxing until the sun sets, the firebowls are lit and the fforest elves light up the barbecue to start preparing herby barbecue chicken ready for your supper. Then dancing shoes on for a ceilidh in the barn. As the young and old drift off, the last ones standing wander down to the firepit for a last reminisce before bed.
Early risers can have a fforest breakfast, but for the majority it will be a mid-morning reviving fforest barbecue brunch. (Bloody Mary anyone?) Time to relax before saying your goodbyes.

The bar is stocked at the cedar barn in the farmyard and the band are starting up, so everyone heads up for an evening of dancing and laughter.
Out on the terrace, firebowls and lanterns are lit creating a wonderful glow. The local butcher arrives with a freshly roasted hog, and supper is served with a selection of beautifully dressed salad leaves and edible flowers picked this morning from the fforest gardens.
While everyone is eating the DJ sets up, so it’s back into the cedar barn to carry on the dancing. When the partying is over, it’s a short stroll past the croglofts back to your dome where you fall into bed.
The tea is brewed and breakfast laid out for any early risers, but we expect to see you and the majority of your guests mid-morning for a slap up Welsh brunch barbecue breakfast before you say goodbye to your guests and head back home to married life!
