Located on the beautiful South Wales coastline, St Donat’s Castle stands a tale of history set amongst some of the most colourful gardens and sea views; a perfect wedding backdrop.

Just a 40 minute drive from central Cardiff, St Donat’s Castle is located in the rural Vale of Glamorgan and offers weddings outside of the college term throughout the Summer. Licensed for indoor and outdoor ceremonies, you can marry in the grand Bradenstoke Hall or outdoors in the Inner Courtyard with the medieval castle walls setting the surrounding. On-site is also the charming St Donat’s Church which can accommodate a wedding ceremony for up to 90 guests.

Whilst guests enjoy an outdoors drinks reception on the Top Lawn, stroll down to the sea front for some incredible photos with the waves hitting the coastal rocks. Leisurely make your way back to the castle through the original Tudor gardens, in bloom with roses and lavender.

We can host a wedding breakfast for up to 150 guests in the Bradenstoke Hall, a room boasting character of bath stone walls and a 40ft high ceiling with dark wooden beams.

Dance the night away, as the band take centre spot on the stage, entertaining your guests through to the end of the night.

    Just been here for a wedding and I can’t praise the place highly enough. If the buildings, rooms, stunning views and overall atmosphere aren’t enough the food was first class and the staff could not be better. We spent the whole day here and were treated like Kings and Queens, nothing was too much trouble and we will remember it fondly. (Trip Advisor)

    We had the most beautiful wedding at St Donats at the end of June and I cannot thank everyone involved enough. Somehow the sun also shone for us which made a stunning and magical venue even more impressive. Karen and Sabrina were amazing in organising everything for us and nothing was too much to ask. In the lead up to the wedding we must have emailed Sabrina a thousand times with questions and concerns and she was patient and understanding and resolved everything. As a nervous groom worried about making sure everything was okay on the day, Karen put me completely at ease and took everything out of my hands.

    I will rate townandcountry caterers elsewhere if I can but they were superb. We are so glad they have the contract now as they were perfect. Despite having 120 guests the food tasted as if we had ordered a la carte from a top restaurant. The lamb was tender and pink and the jus was superb. Stephen Banks was the most brilliant host even bringing us champagne on the beach during our photographs.

    Please do not hesitate in choosing this venue for your wedding. Every single one of our guests had a great day I have been told and we could not have asked for a more perfect occasion. I do not understand the poor reviews for the team at St Donats as they were impeccable for us. I would even thank the security who unfortunately had to stop the party at midnight. They were polite, considerate and couldn’t have been lovelier when helping our guests to the buses and us to our car. Perfect venue, perfect team, perfect wedding.
