Top 5 Wedding venues in Wales for wedding videography
Having temporarily sated our appetite for some of the most unique and unusual wedding venues that the Cotswolds’, the South West Coast and the Home Counties have to offer, we’ve turned our attention to a real jewel in the crown of the British Isles and narrowed down a collection of wonderful Welsh wedding venues that truly celebrate a rustic charm.
As you eagerly read on you could be forgiven for thinking that these almost magical wedding venues to video, which reside in Mid-Wales, South Wales and the borders of the Brecon Beacons and the county of Hereford, sound as if they could have been lifted straight from the pages of a Harry Potter novel; the Institute of Art and Ideas houses the Globe at Hay-on-Wye in Newport, Hereford, Caerphilly Castle in Caerphilly, South Wales, Tallylyn Railway weaving through Tywyn in Gwynedd, the Pistyll Rhaedr Waterfall in… wait for it… Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant, Powys and last but not least Llanerch Vineyard, Hensol situated in the Vale of Glamorgan.
The Globe at Hay-on-Wye (Institute of Art and Ideas), in Newport, Hereford is a wedding venue after our own hearts; they say it best themselves when describing their wedding venue as the perfect location for a truly unique celebration and wedding video. Nestled in the romantic setting of the hillsides of Radnorshire, we love their non-package, completely bespoke approach to planning your special day - and much like the wedding videography team at Jumping Spider Films - their wedding planning professionals work with you to create something truly personal, genuinely creative and completely memorable. With the Hay Registry Office just 100m away, these side-by-side locations are perfect for blessings, weddings and civil ceremonies and any type of wedding reception that might follow, be it a vintage style garden party, a sit-down meal for 85 guests or (our favourite phrase of the day) a ‘monster ceilidh shindig’!
We didn’t have to think too ‘Caerphilly’ (Ouch! HQ will kill me for that one!) when it came to including the stunning Caerphilly Castle on our wedding videography wish list! Surrounded by its own magnificent moat, this medieval masterpiece stands proudly in Caerphilly, South Wales. With all the old-world charm you’d expect from a fourteenth century great hall, paired seamlessly with modern catering facilities and impressive state-of-the-art equipment, it’s no surprise that this wedding venue takes wedding bookings up to thirteen months in advance. Again, akin to Jumping Spider Films, here a mix of the traditional and contemporary combine to offer you and your wedding party a truly unique experience and a unique wedding video to boot.
Possibly the sweetest, most charming wedding venue Jumping Spider Films’ have come across is the Talyllyn Railway in Tywyn, Gwynedd; a historic narrow-gauge steam railway, set in the beautiful Mid-Wales countryside, this is more of a wonderful wedding experience than simply a traditional wedding venue! Your wedding party boards these beautiful carriages at Tywyn Wharf and journeys to Abergynolwyn where your wedding ceremony takes place before bringing you home as man and wife! A completely unique way for rail and nostalgia enthusiasts alike to say their, ‘I dos’ and something we’d love to get the Jumping Spider Films’ cameras in front of to shoot your wedding video!
Pistyll Rhaedr Waterfall
And from the charmingly twee to the truly enchanting, the Pistyll Rhaedr Waterfall in the Berwyn Mountains, just inside of Wales, west of Oswestry and Shrewsbury, is top of the wedding venue charts when it comes to breath-taking. This is a wedding venue where we would love to get Jumping Spider Films’ sister company, Flying Spider Films, involved and urge you to consider a little aerial action with our wedding videography packages that include drone captured wedding footage. The wedding planning team at this wedding venue really embraces the bride, the groom and their guests as they seek to share a real back to nature experience with you all, from blessings in the prayer lodge to decorating with flowers and planting a tree, all in front of the most beautiful backdrop you could ask for.
Finally the Llanerch Vineyard, in Hensol, the Vale of Glamorgan is something we think is really special; a stunning, contemporary wedding venue that offers exquisitely chic ceremonies by day and promises a warm and romantic ambience by night. A glimpse of their website tells you all you need to know about their sky-high standards when it comes to food and drink and the on-site accommodation is simply yet superbly furnished. It’s definitely a wedding venue for those that demand the very best and with the lush green space and rolling mountain scenery, it’s location is simply perfect for our wedding videography team to capture those perfect wedding memories in a cool and creative wedding video as unique as the setting itself.
As wedding videography professionals, we’ve been doing this a while now and in contrast to just how easy it was to say, ‘Yes!’ to that all important question, it can be that difficult to narrow down the perfect wedding venue. Once location is locked down, it’s often full speed ahead with the wedding dress, the flowers, the wedding cake and the photographer but do not forget your wedding videography! After all the hours spent precisely planning your big day, the best and most memorable way to capture it all, is in a beatifully edited HD video and for that, the easiest choice you’ll have to make is to choose Jumping Spider Films.
