Fonmon – Your own Castle for the Day.

The Perfect Setting

Arrivals - Vale Photography 6

 

First impressions are all important. From the moment your family and friends first turn into the grounds of Fonmon Castle, they will realize that they have arrived somewhere very special.

The approach along the tree lined drive passes under ancient oaks and tall pines, glimpsing the emerald lawns and Castle beyond, then you pass the wishing well and though the white gates where 800 years of history awaits you

Whilst still within an easy, thirty minute reach from Cardiff and the M4, Fonmon Castle proudly retains its country connections with the Vale of Glamorgan and  an air of unique history and romance.

 

Exclusive Hire

Library - vintage china

Firstly – we believe that each event we host is unique and special, so the Castle is only ever hired on an exclusive basis, something many other venues cannot offer

With stunning Rococo plasterwork and gilded mirrors, the Library is a delicate and light filled room, perfect for both marriage ceremonies and receptions.

The dramatic Hall & elegant Drawing Room make a great place for photographs, drinks and dancing.

Finally, we created the Bride’s Room to provide a quiet place for you to retreat for a moment of calm.

You can base your wedding inside the castle exclusively or, if you need to accommodate more guests, we have marquee solutions leading directly from the Castle.

The Castle Gardens

At Fonmon we are quietly rather proud of our garden and grounds and you and your guests will be able to share in their beauty.

The wonderfully well kept lawns in front of the castle provide large spaces for outdoor drinks receptions and that all important group photograph.

Outdoor seating and parasols are provided so you can take advantage of fine weather and both lawns have direct access to both the house and / or marquee. Quieter corners of the gardens such as the Folly, Scented Garden and Summerhouse give photographers beautiful backdrops for couples.

The gardens are always available when the Castle is hired for a wedding and guests are free to roam around and fully enjoy the green spaces and beautiful planting developed by generations of the Boothby family.
