Wonderful wedding venue

This is a lovely building with a long history. The grounds and gardens are also well worth seeing. It was a great venue for a wedding.

We pre-booked a buffet lunch and tour of the castle, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. But not worth £6 as we only saw five rooms including the entrance hall. The lunch can only be described as dire. A vegetable lasagne made with inch thick slices of courgettes and olives with a sauce that was split and looked... More

Recently attending my nieces wedding at this venue. It was just perfect. The setting is absolutely beautiful and it helped that the sun shone for us all day. The service was excellent and the wedding meal was totally delicious.

We were married at Fonmon Castle in Easter 2015. Throughout the planning we were looked after with timely correspondence, reassurance when needed and nothing was ever too much trouble for the friendly and efficient planning team. On the day, everything ran smoothly. The castle was beautiful, the gardens were stunning and small touches had been added like a St George's... More

My parents had their wedding here and it was honestly the ideal dream vision for a wedding. The sunny weather may have helped but the castle itself is stunning. There was an old dog who likes to roam around the lobby which we found to be a sweet touch. There is a large spacious room where the guests were able... More

We attended a Wedding Fayre at Fonmon Castle, near Barry this money and it was a very pretty place to be. All the staff and exhibitors were lovely and made you feel very welcome. We haven't chosen a venue yet, but this one was definitely lovely. Thank you
