Ewenny Priory


Founded in 1141 as a Benedictine cell to the Abbey of Gloucester, Ewenny Priory has been described as “the most complete and impressive Norman building in Glamorgan”.

The Norman Church and surrounding fortifications date back to 1115 and its unique features include the monastic transept and presbytery (painted by JMW Turner in c 1797), the Columbarium (with accommodation for a thousand birds and perhaps the largest dovecot in Wales) and a magnificent view over a 60 acre Medieval Deer Park and surrounding woodland.

The grounds of the Priory provide unique, peaceful and magnificent surroundings for a marquee wedding celebration within the walls of a Norman castle. With plenty of room to handle up to 250+ guests and ample parking out of sight of the main venue, Ewenny Priory acts as a blank canvass onto which you can ‘paint’ your perfect wedding day.

Ewenny Priory does not provide a ‘revolving door’ service for weddings. You can treat the place as your own for the whole weekend and use the venue as you please.

You have exclusive access to the grounds of Ewenny Priory onto which you can configure what you need for a wonderful wedding celebration – Marquee/Tipi/Yurt, catering, music, fireworks and other entertainment – the possibilities are as great as your imagination!

  • Our festival-themed wedding was absolutely perfect thanks to this AMAZING setting (the sunshine definitely helped!). If you're looking to create your dream wedding from scratch then stop your search... Ewenny Priory is the best blank canvas you could ask for. All our guests were blown away by the beauty of the location and the relaxed attitude of the owner (Jeremy - who is a legend); we were able to bring in our own suppliers, decorate every corner of the grounds, take photos basically anywhere the photographer's heart desired. Could not recommend Ewenny more 😍😍😍 thank you so so much!!! (Facebook)
  • The priory is a true hidden gem, almost all of our guests are from the area and none of them knew of its beauty! We had the most incredible couple of days, including all of the build up to our wedding. The feedback we have received of the venue itself has been incredible! Jeremy is a pleasure to have dealt with in the process. It really is such a gorgeous venue to have any celebration in. It gave us the perfect day, and we can't thank you enough for allowing us to have our special day at the venue xxx. (Facebook)
