Hotel wedding venues in South Wales
The Angel Hotel - Shades of Autumn from £160
To the west of the Bristol Channel, South Wales is home to the capital city of Cardiff and is famed for icons such as Cardiff Castle, the Wales Millennium Centre arts complex in Cardiff Bay’s waterfront development and the natural beauty of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
In this historic part of the world however, there is an abundance of things to do and see on holiday, and it also makes an idyllic setting in which to get married. The Vale of Glamorgan, the South Wales Valleys, the Wye valley and the Vale of Usk are all ripe for walking cycling and exploring this scenic location, while hotels showcase a rich culture of food and drink from cider and Welsh beer to thrifty favourites designed for the hearty appetites of those working the land and upon whom the nation was built. Meanwhile, Welsh lamb, Caerphilly cheese, and of course the symbolic leek are all put to superb use in fine dining as well.
Hospitality is something that the Welsh excel in – all warm welcomes and professionalism with just the right amount of familiarity such as that at The Grove at Narbeth. From The Angel Hotel in Abergavenny in a stylishly renovated 19th-century coaching inn to the ultra modern Penally Abbey, there’s a breadth of possibilities and opportunities when it comes to style and location for weddings in Wales in rural settings, while Cathedral 73 is the perfect example of a chic, unstuffy city setting in the centre of Cardiff.
