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.
