Cardiff Castle Wedding Photography

Cardiff wedding photographer at Cardiff Castle

 

Cardiff wedding photography at Cardiff Castle, one of Wales most popular tourist attractions. The Romans had built a fort in Cardiff as early as AD 55, when the coast line was much further inland that it is today. The castle you see today has foundations from a 3rd century Roman fort, the motte and bailey was built in the 11th century by Norman invaders. The castle was occupied by several noble families until 1766. It was then passed through marriage to the Bute family. The 2nd Marquess of Bute turned Cardiff into the world’s leading coal exporting port. By 1860’s his son who had inherited his wealth was reported to be the richest man in the world. The renewed architect, William Burgess transformed the lodgings at the castle into the Victorian Gothic revival mansion you see today. Restorations of the Roman Wall  and original castle continued with the 4th Marquess of Bute, until his death in 1947, when his family decided to gift the castle and parkland to the city of Cardiff.
