Absolutely stunning
Absolutely stunning!! We held our daughters wedding here 6th August, the venue, grounds and of course the hard working, discreet and professional staff turned our day into a truly amazing and memorable wedding celebration. The food was excellent and the rooms are beautiful should you wish to stay. Everyone was well looked after and I cannot thank the management and staff for all their help, they were supportive at the planning stage right through to the end of a magical wedding day.

Nothing was too much trouble
Laura and the wonderful team at Hensol were absolutely amazing throughout. Laura was fantastic helping us organise the day and was so accomodating with my countless emails. We had the most amazing day; from the night before at the Vale Resort, to getting ready at the Vale and finally arriving at Hensol. The day was seamless. We couldn’t have asked for a better venue. We would highly recommend Hensol as the perfect place for anyone to get married. Nothing was too much trouble for you guys. We are very grateful for everything you did. Thank you once again

"I have nothing but praise"
Myself and my husband got married in Hensol Castle in October 2019 and I have nothing but praise for the venue, from all the help and support our coordinator Laura provided us on the lead up to the big day. On the big day itself frankee and dewi were amazing in making sure everything ran smoothly, all the staff provided amazing service, the food was outstanding and the venue itself was the perfect venue for us. Inside and outside the castle are stunning especially for photos and if we could do the day all over again we would in Hensol Castle we honestly can’t recommend the venue enough they make your day truly special from start to finish and when we look back at our photos everything was beautiful! Thank you so much again to everyone Laurenne and Rhys x

Simply the best
We got hitched on 16th Feb 2019 We booked with Judy Rose in September 2017 and our journey started... Judy was so accommodating and dealt with our multiple changes of mind and split discussions effortlessly. She felt with multiple quick fire emails and responded to each and every query. In the weeks leading up to the wedding Judy met with us to lock everything in... this is where me met Dewi the Assistant Manager. What can I say about Dewi. He is an absolute credit to the team at the Vale and Hensol. He took the worry and stress from us to manage the big day. Dewi met with us the day before the wedding to dress the castle. Nothing was too much trouble and he rolled his sleeves up and got stuck in to ensure that everything was prepped for the big day. On the day itself, Dewi checked everything so we didn’t have to. He accommodated all of our requests and had everything running like clock work. He dealt with things before they became issues and ensured that our day was special. We have so much love for Dewi. He delivered and made it a day to remember. I have never met someone so hard working, dedicated or willing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Describe the best wedding that happened at Hensol Castle ?

We have enjoyed hosting each and every wedding at our castle. Each couple styles our venue completely differently so we particularly enjoy helping them decide on details of their special day and see photographs afterwards! At the moment we're really enjoying weddings which have the ceremony outside under our bandstand. Overlooking the lake, this area is beautiful for summer wedding ceremonies.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Decide on a budget in advance. To do this we advise couples decide on their 'non negotiables' which they absolutely need to have included in their wedding against things which are additional extra's if they can afford them closer to the wedding date.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

There are so many to choose from! Some that have stood out over the years are when children of the couple have made speeches, family dogs attending for photographs around the grounds and so many others! Recently one of couples had a private first look with one another before the ceremony and they also had their DJ play a song and counted from 1-50 with couples leaving the dancefloor for how many years they had been married, leaving the longest married couple on the dancefloor by the end of the song!
