Cardiff Castle is one of the most sought after wedding locations in Wales, it offers wedding clients a huge variety of function rooms for hire and from a photography perspective has plenty of stunning backdrops to utilise on your special day.
The ceremony can be held in the 15th century undercroft or the guest tower (which can only hold a small number of guests (30 in total I believe) The evening reception can be held in a number of locations; the beautiful Banqueting Hall for a wedding breakfast, the Undercroft or the new Interpretation Centre and its roof top terrace and panoramic views across the city.
Photography opportunities are plentiful. The spiral staircase which adjoins the library and banqueting hall stands out for me, but there are many other rooms and vistas for the bride and groom poses.
The Norman keep, banqueting hall, library and a host of alternative locations in and around the large grounds of the castle ensure it is a popular choice for weddings large and small.
The city centre location offers great access to local hotels and B&B’s for overnight stays. Cardiff Castle is very well managed, each wedding I have photographed has always been given the personal level of attention it deserves making this a must consider venue if the very reasonable rates are within your individual budget.
