Emma and Lee’s Cardiff Castle wedding part two

Did you see yesterday’s blog post? The first part of English Wedding’s little (virtual!) roadtrip to Wales for Emma and Lee’s Cardiff Castle wedding had a VW campervan, gorgeous fishtail wedding dress, ducklings and the most dramatic setting for the ceremony I’ve seen in ages.

Part two, of course… well in part two it gets better and better! I previewed one picture on the English Wedding facebook page earlier this month (sometimes I just can’t wait!), it’s so clever! Aga’s wedding photography is so exciting, and the interior of Cardiff Castle is incredible!

Claire: stop wittering. Everybody else: enjoy….

Then in the evening we had a Twmpath (Welsh ceilidh). Cardiff Catering provided a Welsh themed wedding breakfast – Starter – Welsh Rarebit, main- Honey Roast Lamb, Dessert – Weelshcake cheesecake”

      It’s incredible isn’t it Natalie! I remember going round as a tourist a couple of years ago and admiring the banqueting rooms… it didn’t cross my mind at the time you could have a wedding breakfast in there – they mentioned the royal family and VIPs would dine there from time to time and me and my group of paupers all went “oooooh”.

      So pleased to have such a fabulous wedding on my blog. Thanks for your comment! xx

      Brilliant isn’t it Jenny! I wonder… are there any venues around here that could compare, do you think? Maybe Chatsworth is our finest? I should be more of an expert… what’s your favourite? xx

    Such a gorgeous venue, definitely a wedding to remember. I particularly like the lampost shot, shows both the bride and the castle off beautifully!

      Thanks for your comment Charlotte – glad you like the blog post. More weddings on the way… in fact I think Salma’s sharing some more of hers tomorrow and she got married at Peckforton Castle – guaranteed more castley gorgeousness!
