    Fabulous wedding venue

    All the staff were excellent, especially John Furnham, who ran the day wonderfully.
    Allied to the Cardiff Catering we couldn't have had a better day.

    Outstanding venue and events team!

    John, Claire and the events team at Cardiff Castle did an absolutely stellar job coordinating our wedding last year! The Events Team at Cardiff Castle did an amazing job assisting us with the setup, catering and planning for our wedding with over 90 guests. The castle looked amazing and everyone was in awe of how smoothly everything went! They made it such a special day for us and our families, we could never do this team justice in words. They are amazing at what they do!! John made the entire experience completely stress free which for a bride and groom planning an overseas wedding – this is quite an achievement! Everyone at Cardiff Castle was super friendly with our families and made sure everyone had a wonderful time! Would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone planning a large event or a wedding!

    Your team made it so perfect

    Well what can I say........

    I don’t really know where to start except to say thank you both soooooo much and Wow!!!

    The Castle speaks for itself as it’s just all so beautiful but it’s you and your team that made it so perfect.

    You’ve both been so lovely to deal with and I always felt confident it would be a fantastic day.

    When I first arrived feeling a little nervous you were so calm and lovely and helped me feel relaxed for those first few moments. And were lovely with the 3 girls too who I think were equally apprehensive about walking in.

    You were such a big part of our day and we will never forget your part in it.

    It was a perfect day from start to finish and we wouldn’t change a single thing.

    Many many thanks again
