We include a list of what is not included in our Wedding Package here - just in case you forget something! All the independent wedding suppliers for our wedding venue in South Wales are listed on this website. Start with 'Balloons' and go alphabetically through the different categories of supplier.
This list may also give you some ideas for extras at your wedding reception that you had not considered.
Registrar - you will need to book the registrar. The telephone number for the registrar is
This number is available Monday - Thursday between 0915 and 1645 or until 1615 on Fridays.
- Wedding Ceremony Music in the theatre (we do have a Bose system you can borrow but check it can play whatever media you bring and our staff can play it for you as you enter the Theatre and walk down the aisle).
- Wedding flowers (a must)
- Wedding Reception Chair Covers. The castle provides red seated Cheltenham Gilt chairs in the Conservatory and blue seated Cheltenham Gilt chairs in the Function Room and Opera House. These are quite smart but some weddings do prefer to hire special chair covers for the wedding reception / Wedding Breakfast.
- Wedding Photographer (a must!)
- Wedding Toastmaster (a stylish extra, though may be too 'traditional' for some)
- Wedding Casino (always very popular)
- Cards, Wedding Stationery
- Wedding Favours Wedding Table decorations; we provide Napkins in cream or white only - the final touches are down to you. There are several designs of table setting within this site. Click here for a slide show of Wedding table centres.
- Musicians including Wedding Harpist, Wedding Pianist, Choirs etc (Harpist looks and sounds traditional in the castle setting)
- Ice Sculptures
- Wedding Cars, Horse & Carriages etc (not necessary if staying overnight and ceremony is in Opera House, but required if ceremony is elsewhere)
- Oversized Candelabra and / or Candles for tables (10 normal sized - reasonably large - silver candelabra are included within the Special Offer but you will still need to supply tall candles of your own choice of colour: please buy non-drip candles so as not to mark the candelabra).
