Weddings and Civil Partnership Ceremonies

Caerphilly Castle

Caerphilly Castle

Four Cadw properties are licensed for civil ceremonies conducted by a local authority registrar. These are

  • Caerphilly Castle (the Great Hall);
  • Castell Coch (the Drawing Room)
  • Plas Mawr Elizabethan Townhouse (the Great Chamber)
  • Tretower Court and Castle (the Great Hall, Upper Hall and the Apartments)

These are the only locations where a civil wedding or civil partnership ceremony can take place.

A ceremony and a reception can be held at Caerphilly Castle.

Religious wedding ceremonies cannot be held at any Cadw properties because they are scheduled ancient monuments which cannot be consecrated. However, a site may be hired for a wedding blessing or for photographs.

The construction and use of a marquee cannot be allowed at any site, except in exceptional circumstances. For more information and terms and conditions, please contact the Visitor and Business Services team on 01443 336106.
