The Vale of Glamorgan council has launched a new wedding website

An empty bridge It’s been a big year for weddings in the Vale of Glamorgan since the law changed in England and Wales to allow outdoor weddings and civil partnerships at licensed venues. A lot of work has gone into making the Vale of Glamorgan a top wedding destination, and due to the beauty of its natural environment, the area has a large number of venues for outdoor weddings and civil partnerships, including in Llantwit Major, Penarth, Barry, Cowbridge and Cosmeston.

There is a diverse selection of wedding venues available in the Vale, whether you want to get married in a Harry Potter-esque castle at Hensol or St Donat’s, an art gallery or theatre, or at Penarth Pavilion, there’s plenty to choose from.

The Council also announced in 2022 that weddings and civil partnership ceremonies would also be available at the beach huts at Barry Island.

A new weddings-focused website was also launched by the council, which allows you to view a list of featured venues, approved suppliers, pay for your registration online and features an online portal which allows you to register, personalise and preview the ceremony online by selecting and amending features such as vows and poems.
