Manor Parc Country Hotel Wedding Photography – A Venue in Thornhill, Cardiff
The Manor Parc Country Hotel and Restaurant is a family run hotel opened in 1984. With its roots in Victorian Wales, the hotel was built in 1850 as manor house for a family potato merchants from Cardiff. Today it presents as one of Cardiff’s top and well-loved hotel and restaurants, perfect to host small to medium-sized wedding day celebrations.
The Manor Parc is located at the foot of Caerphilly Mountain and just 5 miles (8.05 km) from the centre of Cardiff in the leafy suburb of Thornhill. Despite the proximity to Wales’s capital city, the hotel is still very much in the heart of the peaceful countryside. The location close to the city centre and it’s transport connections means it is an excellent choice for the wedding ceremony and reception. Alternatively it would be easy to have your marriage at one of Cardiff’s many wedding venues such as City Hall and then move on to the Manor Parc for your reception and evening celebrations. Either way, a professional and attentive staff team guarantees you a fantastic day.
Manor Parc Hotel Wedding Photography Venue
I have photographed at the Manor Parc just once for the reception of a wedding held at the nearby Castell Coch. I found the venue to be very friendly and accommodating and best of all, they work with the wedding photographer to ensure that the happy couple have a great photographic document of their special day.
The hotel is perfect for you and your guests to stay over to save the drive or taxi home. The venue generously offers all wedding guests 10% off their room bill.
If you are having your civil wedding ceremony at the Manor Parc Hotel, the Cardiff registrars are photography friendly and have no restrictions. They only respectfully ask that the register signing is not photographed. Instead, they set up a ‘dummy’ register for posed photographs afterwards.
The venue caters for gay/LGBT weddings as well as civil partnerships and non-religious civil wedding ceremonies.

Manor Parc Hotel Rooms
There are 3 gorgeous rooms to choose from for your Manor Parc Hotel wedding photography. Here is my highlights of what makes them special:
The Cedar Room:
Named after two cedar trees which this rooms overlooks, The Cedar Room is as light and bright as it is elegant. Decorated in white and pale grey, the room is perfect for your wedding photography. Comfortably seating 110 guests or 160 for a later buffet, this would make a fantastic venue for your wedding reception. During the summer, the room opens out onto a terrace facing beautiful landscaped gardens.
This exceptionally light and airy room is the considered the main restaurant room at Manor Parc. This is probably due to the large orange dome in the centre which lets in natural light during the day and the room is named after. Seating 80 for the wedding breakfast and catering for 110 for the evening buffet, the Orangerie isn’t quite as large as the Cedar Room. Usually open for fine dining and afternoon tea, the restaurant is available to book for wedding days and private functions.
The Oak Room:
With space for just 16 seated guests, the Oak Room is suitable for small wedding parties. However it is no less special the Manor Parc’s larger rooms. With oak panelling and a period fireplace, this room gives a sense of what it must have been like to dine at the venue at the time of its Victorian origins.
