Anwen Sault-Jones, Venue Hire Assistant comments:

“St Dwynwen’s Day traditionally celebrates the Welsh patron saint of lovers so what better time to visit St Fagans to discuss wedding requirements and visualise what your big day could look like here.  St Fagans is a wonderful wedding venue and caters for so many different tastes and styles so I hope as many couples as possible visit us on Sunday.  We hope to inspire lots of people and provide them with useful contacts and ideas while they plan their big day.”


St Fagans has become a popular wedding destination in recent years, due to its elegant formal gardens, historic buildings and outstanding catering.  Licensed for civil ceremonies and wedding receptions, the showcase offers a great opportunity to view the venue and see what’s available either for a future wedding or for a vintage hen party with a difference.  Castle gardens-mariafarrellyphotographyImage by: Maria Farrelly Photography
