Coed Hills outdoor festival Wedding Venue near Cardiff

Welcome to Coed

Coed (pronounced Coyd) is a unique Wedding venue set in over 180 acres of unspoilt ancient Woodland, lakes and beautiful summer meadows with elevated views reaching as far as the Jurassic coastline of Wales, yet a stones throw from the Welsh Capital, Cardiff.


Coed has been the leading centre for low impact living in Wales since it was established in 1997. It has hosted many international events including Art show's and the UK Permaculture Convergence.  It has been internationally identified as a place for those who want to embrace an off grid way of living in harmony with nature in a sustainable environment or to explore and evolve their connection with themselves in tranquil and peaceful surroundings. 


With its relaxed and informal atmosphere, it is perfect for a weekend long celebration of love and unity with family and friends, providing a blank canvas to create your own self build outdoor, festival, bohemian or fairytale style Wedding.


Here at Coed we are embracing a different approach to the Wedding and Events industry by reducing our impact on the environment and aiming towards a zero waste event space meaning that everything can either be recycled or reused, reducing our landfill waste. We only use local suppliers wherever possible, supporting small businesses that are in line with our waste free ethos and are also passionate about our planet.


Coed has a licence to hold civil ceremonies in its large rustic barn or a smaller more intimate ceremony room. You could opt for a humanist ceremony which can be conducted anywhere on-site, perfect for those who dream of an outdoor Wedding.


If your guests wish to remain at the venue for the weekend, they can stay in one of the various cosy little homes dotted around the site or even set up their own camp in one of the camping fields. Allowing them to celebrate with the newly weds then wander the solar lite paths to bed for the night or bring a blanket and sit around the large communal fire pit and watch the shooting stars with friends and family, whilst listening to the music and celebrations continue until the early hours.


Coed has open spaces and rolling meadows in abundance. These are perfect for getting back to nature, kicking off your shoes and running barefoot through the morning dew or just to disappear with your new spouse to watch the magnificent sunsets over the Vale of Glamorgan countryside. It also boasts so many photo opportunities with its very own stone circle and an impressive labyrinth cut into the grass by international artist David Goff-Eveleigh. This venue is pretty diverse yet organic by nature and perfect for a relaxed, rustic, festival or bohemian style Wedding or union.


With its green methods of living and low impact ethos, Coed could also bring nature to your table with its freshly grown certified organic vegetables grown from our onsite gardens at Coed Organic. The organically grown produce could be used to serve a seasonal menu to your guests meaning you are really providing a wholesome experience with little impact to the environment.   


Why not gather with your Bridesmaids the day before the Wedding Ceremony and wander through the forest picking your own ivy to decorate your Ceremony room. This not only looks exceptionally pretty but also helps us to maintain a healthy woodland and can be put straight back into the compost systems at Coed.  We can also supply you with edible flowers from our gardens to decorate your wedding cake.


Weddings at Coed really do not need to cost the Earth
