What sets your venue apart from others?
Originally built in the early 12th Century, Ewenny Priory was a Benedictine foundation connected to St. Peter's Abbey, Gloucester. After the dissolution of the monasteries in the 16th Century the Carne/Turbervill family have lived there ever since. The church has been described as "The best-preserved example of a Norman priory church in South Wales" and “The most complete and impressive Norman building in Glamorgan”.
Hiring the venue gives the wedding party exclusive access to the gardens and towers within the Norman fortifications and there are plenty of locations which make a great backdrop to photographs including the Historic Deer Park.
Ewenny Priory is a blank canvass onto which they can ‘paint’ your perfect wedding day.
