Laura & Dan

Hensol Castle Wedding

First of all Laura and Dan started their Hensol Castle Wedding day at St Catherine s Church. St Catherine s Church is situated on Kings Road in the trendy Pontcanna district of Cardiff. In 2015 Pontcanna was listed as one of the most fashionable places to live in the UK therefore providing a stunning start to the day.

We made our way to Hensol Castle after the ceremony for the photographs and the wedding reception. Hensol Castle is a relatively new addition to the list of amazing wedding venues available to couples in South Wales. The Castle was recently updated to accomodate weddings. The Castle has since become one of the most sought after South Wales Wedding Venues. It is always a great experience to be the photographer at a Hensol Castle Wedding. Accommodation is available at the nearby Vale Resort Hotel which is less than a couple of minutes drive from the castle. 

Hensol Castle

The Castle seems like something you would see in a Disney movie. A grade 1 listed building it is 400 years old. There are many striking features including turrets and Gothic towers. Inside, the Castle boasts sweeping staircases and plenty of original architecture. The Castle is set within an enchanting estate which includes 650 acres of beautiful Welsh countryside. At the rear of the Castle sits the Serpentine lake. There is a wooden jetty at the side of the lake offering a great location for some romantic bride and groom photographs.

I had spent some time with Laura and Dan at Hensol Castle earlier in the year for their pre wedding photographs. While we were there we were able to test out locations and options for their wedding day photos. Their wedding day late in October meant it was dark quite early and as a result we were able to take some amazing night time photographs with the castle floodlit behind.

In conclusion it was an amazing day with excellent weather. Here is a small selection of photographs from their wedding. I hope you like them. I would love to chat with you about your wedding photography with no obligation. To see if your date is still available please Get In Touch
