Rob and I met in 2006, the year I was due to start Uni and the year he was graduating and returning to Portsmouth. We instantly clicked.  Rob managed a whole two weeks at home before moving back to Cardiff and has never looked back since! Rob’s huge commitment was pivotal to us falling in love and it continued to flourish! We have had many amazing adventures and had been the best of friends for 8 years before Rob popped the question in Times Square, NYC, in June 2014. We finally tied the knot on June the 4th 2016 which has been our best adventure to date!


  1. Don’t be afraid to be ask and go for what you want. Oldwalls’ simple décor and flexibility means that anything goes (literally!). Our locally sourced florist Eve Weatherly liaised with Oldwalls and created stunning high-level displays which really made the rooms pop! Videographers are really great for capturing these details of your day and bringing memories alive.
  2. Make sure you visit Oldwalls’ fabulous wedding showcases to really get a good feel for how your day will be set up. Oh, and eat everything, seriously.
  3. Have FUN! The fantastic team at Oldwalls really do have everything covered! Enjoy every single part of the wedding planning journey – remember that this is the build up to the happiest day of your lives!


With my family from Cardiff and Rob’s family primarily from West Wales, we wanted a wedding venue that was nicely in the middle, with plenty of accommodation for guests. We attended an Oldwalls wedding showcase and our decision was made. We fell in love with the venue as soon as we walked into the stunning Oak Room and I instantly pictured myself walking down the aisle here. Oldwalls really captured the organic and ethereal feel we were looking for. The staff were second to none throughout the whole planning process, and the food was simply incredible!
