Your Wedding Reception in a Castle - it's all yours for the Day

"We only allow one wedding a day in the castle, so
our Castle is yours for your wedding day"

This sets our castle apart from wedding venues in South Wales who have more than one wedding on the same day.
South Wales Weddings Ceremonies
If you’re looking for wedding venues in South Wales that will do justice to your big day, look no further!  

You'll be married in our Grade One Listed historic opera house, a grand wedding ceremony room seating up to 150 guests, followed by welcome drinks for all your guests served in the Nicolini Lounge or in the Gardens.

Allow up to two hours for your wedding photographs in the Courtyard, Castle Gardens and Country Park, followed by a leisurely wedding banquet served in our stunning Conservatory - your  wedding reception 'day' room.

For your evening wedding party you can use either the Conservatory or a separate evening function room.

Our experienced wedding team will always be promptly on hand via email and our chat service throughout the months leading up to your wedding day. You will benefit from the Castle's full Wedding Venue Planning service and we'll be quick to answer any questions you may have. We'll ensure everything at our Castle is properly planned in line with your wishes, so your wedding day runs perfectly, just as you dreamed.

Your DJ can set up in our large function room while you dine in the Conservatory. There's no waiting around while our separate function room is 'made ready' for the evening.

You can either have your evening party in the Conservatory or in the larger Function Room.

Larger weddings will tend to use the main function room as there is more space and the main bar is next to the function room. Midweek, Last Minute and smaller weddings mainly use the Conservatory for Day and Evening.
