Weddings at Temple of Peace

An enchanting wedding venue in the heart of Cardiff

The Temple of Peace is different to most venues you can hire in Cardiff. We are not owned by a private business; we are managed by the charity the Welsh Centre for International Affairs. All proceeds contribute to the charity’s work in supporting international development, peace, human rights and global education. With your money you are directly helping us to create a fairer and more peaceful world.

Undeniably one of Wales’ most unique venues, it is a truly enchanting setting for your wedding. With a selection of different function suites, exclusive use, and a license to host your ceremony, our unique venue offers couples a once in a lifetime setting to celebrate one of the most important days of your lives. Floor to ceiling windows flood light into every exquisitely maintained room, so wherever you choose to host your day, it will be done against a truly beautiful backdrop.

The jewel of the Temple of Peace’s crown is the Marble Hall. With space for up to 160 guests and staggeringly high ceilings, this flexible space can host your entire day’s proceedings, through from ‘I do’ to the carriages arriving!
