Wedding FAQs

All Your Wedding Questions Answered: Navigating your big day at the Giltar Hotel, Tenby has never been easier. From ceremony specifics to dining options, find all the information you need to make your wedding day as smooth as possible.

Making your booking

Once you have chosen an available date for your wedding, we ask that you pay a £500 non-refundable deposit within 7 days to secure your date

We need to know the final numbers at least 3 weeks prior to the wedding day, after this your invoice for the full balance can be paid.  We also need to have your seating plans 3 weeks prior to prepare the seating plan (included in the price)

3 weeks before the wedding

Most couples opt for Fridays and Saturdays, however if you are considering a different day of the week, we can check availability for you.

Many couples are booking as far as 3 years in advance.  As soon as you’ve chosen your wedding day/month we would advise getting in touch to check availability to avoid disappointment

Having your cermony at the hotel

Yes. We are licensed to hold civil ceremonies in the upper and lower restaurant areas. The cost of room hire for a civil ceremony is included in all packages contained within the brochure.  This includes the setting up of the room (to include red carpet arrival, chairs and white chair covers).  You will be required to contact the Haverfordwest Registry Office (01437 775176) to confirm date and time availability for registrar.   If you do not live in Pembrokeshire, you will also be required to go to your local registry office in order to be interviewed there and information is then transferred to Haverfordwest. Find your nearest registry office here.  You will need to do this prior to booking the hotel.   Full details can be found on the Pembrokeshire County Council Website

Up to 120

It is the responsibility of the couple to book the registrar.  Visit the Pembrokeshire County Website for full details.

The earliest time is 12.30pm.

No alcoholic drinks may be brought into the hotel for consumption on the premises without prior agreement and consent. We reserve all right to charge corkage for all drinks brought onto the premises. We would prefer not to be asked for a corkage facility, but we do appreciate there may be a valid reason for this request. We would ask that you discuss this in advance and make your guests aware of the same conditions

No, we do not supply wedding cakes.  However, we do include a table for the cake and a knife to cut the cake.   We can recommend wedding cake suppliers if you wish.  We ask that the cake suppliers deliver the cake after 11am on the day once the room is set up and prior to the wedding breakfast to ensure it is ready in advance for when guests arrive.   Alternatively, it can be delivered the day before and it can be stored at the hotel.

Your Evening Function

You can opt to not have an evening buffet for guests, however we wouldn’t recommend this as most guests would expect some sort of food in the evening.  We can serve a buffet as late as 9.30pm and have a finger buffet and hot buffet option. Room hire charge of £500 would apply if not having a buffet.
