    Wedding of our dreams

    We got hitched on 16th Feb 2019. We booked with Judy Rose in September 2017 and our journey started...
    Judy was so accommodating and dealt with our multiple changes of mind and split discussions effortlessly. She felt with multiple quick fire emails and responded to each and every query. In the weeks leading up to the wedding Judy met with us to lock everything in... this is where me met Dewi the Assistant Manager. What can I say about Dewi. He is an absolute credit to the team at the Vale and Hensol. He took the worry and stress from us to manage the big day. Dewi met with us the day before the wedding to dress the castle. Nothing was too much trouble and he rolled his sleeves up and got stuck in to ensure that everything was prepped for the big day. On the day itself, Dewi checked everything so we didn’t have to. He accommodated all of our requests and had everything running like clock work. He dealt with things before they became issues and ensured that our day was special.
    We have so much love for Dewi. He delivered and made it a day to remember. I have never met someone so hard working, dedicated or willing.”

    The most perfect day

    I was lucky enough to get married here last Friday and I can’t recommend the venue highly enough. The place is beautiful but it’s the staff that make it. Laura Smith was our coordinator in the run up and nothing was too much trouble, communication was excellent. Georgia and Dewi were fab on the day, as was everyone else (security included). Thank you so much for giving us a perfect day

    Perfect Wedding Venue

    We got married on 22nd July and had the best day ever! The venue is out of this world and the weather was perfect! A huge thank you to Laura who made planning the wedding from abroad easy and stress free, and answered all queries promptly. All staff on the day were excellent! Special thanks to Dewi who made sure the day ran smoothly and nothing was too much to ask! Meg, who served the top table, was fantastic! And, as our centre pieces weren’t what we’d hoped for from the florist, Jodie spent hours rearranging and creating new centre pieces for us which were perfect! Food was excellent! All of our guests where blown away by the day and couldn’t fault any of it. A day we will cherish forever! Thank you! Mr and Mrs Pascoe
