Located on the beautiful South Wales coastline, St Donat's Castle is the perfect venue for your special day and is just a 40 minute drive from central Cardiff. The castle stands a tale of history set amongst some of the most colourful gardens and sea views; a perfect wedding backdrop.
The castle, owned by UWC Atlantic College is available for weddings outside of the UWC College term usually from mid June to Mid August, and during the school term on selected Saturday and Sunday dates between mid August and the end of September.
We only take one wedding per day, with the romantic castle and gardens hired on a 12.30pm to midnight basis for you and your guests.
Hiring the castle for your special day includes use of the Bradenstoke Hall, Rose, Blue and Beast gardens, Top Lawn (with sea views), Inner Courtyard, Great Hall and a designated changing room on the day of the wedding. The Bradenstoke Hall can accommodate 160 guests for a wedding breakfast and 200 guests for an evening party.
If you wish to get married at St Donat’s Castle, several of its rooms and gardens are licensed for wedding ceremonies and civil partnerships including the Inner Courtyard which is a popular area for outdoor ceremonies and drink receptions.
On-site is also the charming St Donat’s Church which can accommodate a wedding ceremony for up to 110 guests.
