Wedding Venues in South Wales & Cardiff
Woohoo! You just got engaged! You’re probably starting to think about wedding venues but you must have lots of questions.
What are the best wedding venues in South Wales? Which are the top wedding venues in Cardiff?
Cardiff and South Wales as a whole have so many wonderful and unique wedding venues. There are venues to suit all wedding budgets and styles.
As a South Wales wedding photographer, I get to visit some incredible wedding venues in South Wales. I wanted to share my top 5 wedding venues in South Wales with you!
In no particular order:
I love Margam Orangery! The main reason is the stunning grounds that surround it. Being located within 850 acres of picturesque parkland, Margam Park, it’s surrounded by gorgeous gardens with so many places to shoot! There’s a kitchen garden, fountains, a little wooden bridge, beautiful stone walls, castle ruins, a greenhouse and so many beautiful trees that change with each season.
Yes, the grounds are beautiful but the Orangery is just as stunning. The big windows create the most beautiful light for your ceremony and your reception. They also provide an amazing backdrop for indoor photos if the weather isn’t playing ball too.

Hensol Castle is another beautiful wedding venue in South Wales. I’ve been fortunate enough to capture two beautiful weddings here already with lots more in the pipeline.
The castle itself is beautiful and the epitome of a Welsh Castle. The ample ground surrounding it are perfect for a stroll at sunset too. The huge lake and jetty make for the best photographs as the sun goes down behind it.

Pencoed House is a gorgeous rustic style wedding venue in South Wales. It’s one of the oldest buildings in Cardiff being from the 15th century! Built with gothic stone, it has fabulous archways and beautiful doors which make for fairytale-like wedding photographs.
Pencoed House set within stunning gardens with a stream running through, a stone bridge as well as a wooden bridge. There’s plenty of places to explore for your wedding photos!

Oldwalls is a fantastic venue set in the heart of the Gower. It’s a stones throw from some of the most beautiful beaches where you can sneak off for your wedding photos.
The venue itself has a wonderful lake, a bright ceremony room and a huge permanent marquee for your wedding breakfast. They’ve also recently created even more accommodation on-site with glamping pods now available too!

Court Colman is a beautiful manor house in South Wales. The manor is a gorgeous country house nestled at the bottom of the Garw Valley in South Wales.
The ceremony room is decorated beautifully for any wedding with huge windows lighting up the room from the front. The wedding breakfast room is just as bright and makes the perfect place for your speeches.
The ground at this lovely South Wales wedding venue are rolling hills of greenery with some hidden nooks such as stone steps and even a rustic tree swing!
