Cardiff Castle

I have had the opportunity to photograph many company events, industry dinners and weddings at the wonderful Cardiff Castle.  The castle is steeped in history, with sections within the structure dating back over 2000 years.  The site was originally a Roman fort, which was then converted into a Norman castle, with the addition of a keep, after the Norman conquest.  However, the present magnificent building is the original vision of the 2nd Marquess of Bute.  However, the work to create the castle seen today started in 1866 when the 3rd Marquess enlisted the help of world-famous architect William Burgess.  The castle was transformed with incredibly decorative rooms and the addition of gothic towers.  Since the death of the 4th Marquess of Bute, Cardiff Castle has been under the care of the city of Cardiff.
