The Vale Resort unveils a fairytale wedding venue
A historic castle in south Wales is reopening as a wedding venue for the 2014 season, following the first phase of a multi-million pound refurbishment to restore it to its former glory
Hensol Castle has been closed to the public for almost a decade and only used as a stage set for the television series Doctor Who, Sherlock and Torchwood. However, thanks to the investment, it will be open as a wedding venue from April 2014 catering for wedding parties of up to 180 guests, who can hire it exclusively. 
The revamped venue, which will hold a wedding licence, consists of four ceremony and reception rooms, together with a marquee in the central courtyard.
Located in Hensol Park, next door to the Vale Resort, the 400-year old castle has original architecture, turrets, gothic towers and feature staircases. The castles restoration is in keeping with its 17th century heritage in gothic style, and all of the conference suites are named after previous famous owners of the castle.
The former stately home, situated six miles outside of Cardiff city centre and three minutes off junction 34 of the M4, is set within landscaped gardens and has a 15-acre lake and serpentine pond.
Paul Beddoe, sales and marketing director of the Vale Resort, said: “Hensol Castle really is a unique place and a must-see for any bride and groom. Not only will they have an idyllic setting to create their picture-perfect day, but they will also be looked after by a team of experts who are experienced in delivering the highest standards of wedding service.
“The real selling point for Hensol Castle is that it can be hired exclusively, which makes it highly attractive for brides and grooms who like to have an intimate celebration just for them and their guests.

“All clients will get the red carpet treatment from start to finish, and as a thank you for choosing Hensol Castle we have included a number of extras to all wedding packages”.
