Venue History: The Glen-Yr-Afon House Hotel was 36 years old as a business in March 2010. Throughout the whole of this time it has been in the continuous ownership of Peter and Jan Clarke since itís purchase as a country house in 1973. The original house was built in 1868 for a Richard Satchell whose occupation on the conveyance is given as a draper. The grounds to the house included the field next door in which the hotel extension now lies (purchased back in 1991).

Wedding Trivia:
WHITE WEDDING DRESS AS TRADITION
The tradition for the bride to wear white began in the 16th century and is still commonly followed today. This is a symbol of the bride's purity and her worthiness of her groom. The tradition became solidified during the time of Queen Victoria who rebelled against the royal tradition for Royal brides to wear silver. Instead, the queen preferred the symbolism, which is expressed by wearing white. The brides of the time quickly emulated the queen, and the tradition has continued in full force to this day.
