Temple Of Peace


Temple Of Peace



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. So when you book your wedding, engagement party, conference or...business meeting with us, your money is used to contribute to not just our magnificent building but also 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.

A Grade II listed secular building of magnificent historical gravitas that offers everybody the chance to have a memorable wedding in the heart of Cardiff.

This is Cardiff’s most unique wedding venue with a Marble Reception Hall to welcome your guests. You have the choice of our regal wood panelled Council Chamber and the magnificent Art Deco Marble Hall to hold your ceremony, reception or both.

The Council Chamber
Home to hundreds of Lord Davies' books from his personal collection, this is any book lover's dream venue. With a unique backdrop for your wedding, it's perfect for a cosy wedding service and reception with up to 60 of your guests.

The Marble Hall
With its impressive marble pillars, art deco lighting and 34 feet picture windows, the marble hall is the perfect venue to accommodate up to 180 guests for your wedding.


We work with Cardiff’s top traditional and ethnic caterers to supply fresh, locally sourced produce and delicious menus prepared seasonally to accommodate all tastes and budgets as well as staging/décor companies to offer a truly personalised touch.


You have exclusive use of the building for the day, options to extend the venue with marquees on the lawn and iconic Art Deco backdrop to your Wedding photos, the Temple of Peace is Cardiff’s newest ‘Must Have’ venue!
