Cardiff Wedding

Cardiff is the capital city of Wales and also its largest city. It is in the county of Glamorgan, and originally made its living as a port city, with coal being its key cargo from the many coalmines of South Wales. Long before that it was a natural place to build defences, and Cardiff Castle remains an impressive reminder of the need to have high walls to keep out raiders, whether from England or the wilder parts of Wales. Nowadays the city has both industrial and business areas that provide well paid work for its population. The regeneration of the town and the docks also makes it a pleasant place to live (and get married).

Cardiff Castle - Venue - Cardiff
Approx crow-flies distance from selected city centre: 0 miles.

Difficult to beat this as an impressive venue - possibly Buckingham Palace or Versailles. They suggest a range of 30 up to 150 people, with a choice of menus to suit all tastes. The grounds are obviously very extensive so there is no limit to the imaginative photography possible. Definitely worth a visit to see the options available.
