Venue stress - Recommendations please...
We're having some real difficulty trying to find a venue in South Wales - Mid Glamorgan/RCT/Vale/Cardiff area that suits our needs.
We don't have traditional views and so want to have ceremony and reception at one venue if possible. There's quite a divide between families so we want to avoid the typical 3 course wedding breakfast. Unfortunately, most venues we've look at don't tend to offer an alternative to the wedding breakfast (i.e. we like the idea of afternoon tea). As a result we've started looking for somewhere that will allow us to have our own caterers but in a venue that isn't going to cost an arm and a leg to hire for the ceremony and reception.
We currently have appointments to view Duffryn Springs and Cottrell Park (these are the types of venue that we'd like) but if anyone can offer up other suggestions we'd really appreciate it.
