    Wonderful wedding venue

    As soon as we saw Plas Dinam we knew this was where we wanted to get married in front of our family and friends. It is such a beautiful venue surrounded by the hills. Unfortunately due to COVID we have had to postpone our wedding twice but this period has been made so much easier with the team at Plas Dinam. They have been really accommodating to work with us to plan the wedding we want. They have such a personal touch which has made organising a wedding with the uncertainties of a pandemic a much smoother experience. They even sent us a care package with Welsh treats to celebrate our would be wedding day. It is those thoughtful gestures which really do make all the difference. We really cannot wait until we say I do here.

    Dream wedding venue!

    I don't even know where to start with this review, as I don't think I'll be able to put into words how amazing Plas Dinam and the team are.

    We knew this was the wedding venue for us as soon as we saw it - the beautiful scenery, gorgeous house, breathtaking stables and the incredible team at Plas Dinam.

    The venue truly is unique as you are able to hire it out exclusively for the entirety of your wedding. This is so special as it allows you to spend more than just one day with your guests. We had a pizza night on the Friday night before our wedding, which was so much fun! Tyson showed us how to use the oven and everyone enjoyed making their own pizza and socialising. We also hired out the lodge and the glamping tents as that enabled us to have a good number of our wedding party on site with us. It meant that everyone could explore the grounds and socialise before the wedding on the Saturday.

    The true beauty of Plas Dinam is that it is a blank canvas. Eldrydd and her family are keen for you to make the wedding your own, so you really do get to create your own vision in the stunning stables. They are so helpful with any questions that you have along the way as you're planning, they truly want your wedding to be everything you have imaged. Our wedding day went so smoothly due to all of Louise's help. We didn't have to worry about anything - it was perfect!

    All of our friends and family commented on how beautiful the location was and also just how nice it was to be able to spend quality time together in such a gorgeous building.

    It was our dream wedding venue and it honestly surpassed every expectation that we had. It truly was the best weekend ever and we can't thank Eldyrdd, Tyson, and team enough!

    A Dream Venue

    We got married here just over a month ago and could not be happier we chose Plas Dinam! It is so relaxed, you really can make your wedding exactly whatever you want it to be!

    Our ceremony was in the drawing room looking out onto the welsh countryside, it fit our 80 guests perfectly with the sun shining through the windows and our friend playing the grand piano in the room.

    The house is huge, by the time we left we were still getting lost! Every room is beautiful!

    The glass roofed stables for the reception is such a different but perfect space. Other than our wedding day we were unlucky with the weather, but the indoor spaces meant that we still had a brilliant time for the four days we were there.

    One of the things that really makes Plas Dinam stand out is the people, we had some bad luck with other venues, but from the second we spoke to Eldrydd and Louise we knew they would look after us, and they certainly did. I can’t tell you how important this was.

    I have added a few pictures, but once you see this place you won’t look any where else!

    We can't wait!

    We are so pleased that we chose to get married at Plas Dinam. Eldrydd and the PD family have been fantastic, especially throughout the pandemic, keeping us informed and managing our postponements with ease. They even sent us a little gift to mark our original wedding date! Not once have we felt under pressure or concerned, which has been very appreciated during these challenging times.

    As soon as we visited Plas Dinam we knew it was the only place we wanted to get married, it is the most beautiful house and setting. Our wedding will now be later this year and we can’t wait!! I know that it is going to be the best few days with all of our family and friends!

    Stunning, flexible and not a 'wedding factory' in site!

    It was so important to us to have a venue where we could make our own stamp on the day, where we didn't have to conform to a certain programme, and for us Plas seems to tick all of those boxes! Due to Covid-19 we've had to move our celebrations twice now, but we're hoping for 3rd time lucky this September! Throughout everything, Eldrydd and her team at Plas have been so flexible and accommodating, and we can't wait to eventually tie the knot in the stunning grounds later in the year.

    The perfect wedding weekend!

    Plas Dinam Country House soon became our favourite place. From the moment we drove up the the winding path to the house, we knew it was the place for us. Not only could we enjoy the beautiful surroundings that Plas Dinam sits in, but we got to extend our wedding to enjoy a whole weekend at the house for our wedding. We arrived on Thursday to crisp sheets, enjoyed pizza facilitated by Tyson on Friday, our wedding on Saturday in the Stables and a BBQ on Sunday. We feel absolutely blessed!

    Eldrydd allowed us to make the house our home for the weekend and no request was too big or none negotiable. They were kind throughout and determined to make sure that, despite to pandemic, we were to have the wedding we had planned at Plas Dinam.

    On the day Louise was never far to check how things were going and to organise the various suppliers who were a part of our day. Everything was so smooth and we trusted that Louise was in control.

    We will forever be grateful for their kindness, support and consideration throughout! Thank you!

    Could there be anywhere more perfect to get married!? We doubt it!

    We just wanted to message to say thank you so much for the most wonderful weekend!

    Lou, (wedding coordinator) was amazing! She thought of solutions to problems before we even realised there was a problem. She were organised, reassuring and just a lovely person to spend time with! Thank you so much for making our wedding go so perfectly.

    The bar staff were also fabulous! Nothing was too much trouble.

    After the postponement and all the zoom calls we are so pleased to have finally got the wedding of our dreams. You have all been wonderful right from day one. Could there be anywhere more perfect to get married!? We doubt it!

    With all our thanks and very best wishes.

    The most spectacular venue

    We chose Plas Dinam for our wedding not only for the gorgeous country house and stunning views but also for the opportunity to truly create an event that was our own. No other venue we viewed was able to give us this flexibility. Whilst it was the grounds of the venue that really sold us, we loved how the house itself manages to be both enormous and also very comfortable/homely. A great place to spend the weekend with our nearest and dearest.

    Our date rolled around and despite prior stress owing to uncertainty caused by the pandemic, our wedding on the Saturday was utterly perfect. We had a beautiful humanist ceremony and a relaxed drinks reception out on the lawns overlooking the mountains. It was the most spectacular setting we could have asked for. The stables for dinner and our evening reception were equally wonderful and made for a great change of scenery for our guests. We kept our decor simple, making the most of our gorgeous florals and some lovely table runners - everything looked spectacular.

    It wouldn't be fair to write a review without referencing the wonderful team at Plas Dinam. Throughout all the uncertainty of the pandemic, Eldrydd reached out and ensured we stayed informed as government guidelines evolved. In the final few months of planning, and over the weekend itself, we had the absolute pleasure of working with Lou who did a wonderful job of coordinating our big day. She was calm, composed and it felt as though she was really invested in our event.

    We truly had the wedding of our dreams, which didn't always feel possible when planning amidst a global pandemic. Our guests repeatedly told us it was one of the best weddings they have attended and now we have so many gorgeous memories to look back on for years to come. For a stunning 'build-your-own' wedding in the heart of the glorious Welsh countryside, look no further!

    A perfect wedding weekend at this wonderful venue

    We feel very lucky to have found Plas Dinam as a venue for our wedding in July 2021. It was just perfect for us, such a special place and everything we had hoped for.
    Eldrydd and her team were fantastic. They were total professionals, whilst maintaining a lovely, relaxed atmosphere, which is just what we wanted. They helped us navigate the ever- changing Covid restrictions, keeping us fully informed at all times, and staying so positive and encouraging throughout.
    Wedding coordinator Lou was a complete star. She guided us through the complex web of wedding planning with consummate ease. On the wedding weekend itself she was there throughout for advice and support, making sure the day itself went without a glitch. The staff at Plas Dinam were so lovely and helpful too.
    The pre-wedding information was very useful and the trusted suppliers we utilised were great. These included Jane Shallow who was so friendly and very understanding of our wishes, producing such beautiful flowers for us. Emma and her lovely team at Paisley Flour provided delicious food with great service on the day, and the guests loved the quirky, fun props provided by Megan & Claude.
    Plas Dinam is a truly amazing house with gorgeous rooms throughout and we loved being able to share it with our family and friends for the weekend. The younger guests enjoyed the freedom of having their own space in the glamping area, and the lodge house provided a very comfortable and quiet place to stay for a few of our older guests. Additional guests had no problem finding accommodation close by for the weekend and taxi transport was easy on the day itself. The Stables had just the right relaxed an rustic vibe we wanted for the wedding breakfast and evening celebrations, with fire pit and such pretty lighting adding to the atmosphere.
    We loved every single minute of our Plas Dinam wedding and cannot recommend it highly enough.

    Dreamy + Wonderful

    We had a wedding party on the 1st july 2021 at Plas Dinam. It was incredible. After a number of rescheduled dates we finally had our day. I am originally from the area and new the beauty of mid wales. Plas Dinam is set within this incredible landscape and so we new straight away that it was the perfect setting for us. The team were very supportive throughout the pandemic and we are thankful for all their efforts.

    Perfect Wedding

    Plas Dinam is the perfect wedding venue if you are looking to have a wedding that is rustic, romantic and totally in your hands. We went to view the venue in June 2018 and Julie was kind enough to show us around the house and grounds. We knew then and there that this was the perfect venue as it was near enough to my family home and also had plenty of room for the groom's Irish family to stay in the house! We booked for a mid-week wedding and for 3 nights as this gave everyone plenty of time to recover before travelling back to Ireland. Eldrydd and Julie were excellent in the months leading up to the wedding, answering all my questions and providing all the information we required.

    We arrived at the venue the day before and started decorating. The house honestly requires little if no decoration as it is beautiful both inside and out so we set to work decorating the stables. The house was the perfect size that it fit all our Irish family and friends and yet you didn't feel cramped.

    On the day of the wedding we had originally hoped for an outdoor ceremony but the weather disagreed, so we opted for the beautiful Drawing Room. This is the perfect venue for a small, intimate ceremony, as ours was, and we were delighted with it! Julie was also wonderful as out wedding co-ordinator, making sure everyone was okay and everything was going to plan.

    The house and grounds provided the perfect venue for wedding photos and the stables are the most beautiful wedding reception venue you could imagine.

    Our wedding day was honestly the best day of our lives and we couldn't imagine a better place than Plas Dinam for our celebrations!

    Wedding Weekend

    We had our wedding on 17th August 2019 at Plas Dinam and it was just the best weekend. We hired the house out from Friday to Monday and it was so nice having the extra time with our guests, The Friday night we were able to set up the stables ready for our reception and then use the built in pizza oven which was a really fun way of catering for our guests. On the Saturday, wedding day itself, we got married under the front door arch which was so pretty and then held drinks and canapes on the back lawn followed by the reception in the stables. The space was so good for our guests and the open dancefloor, bar and tables were great for creating a party atmosphere. On the Sunday we made the most of the house and grounds which was the perfect space to relax. Would definitely recommend Plas Dinam to others who want a relaxed venue they can make their own. Everyone is still talking about how much of an amazing weekend it was!

    Dream Wedding Venue

    If you are looking for the most idyllic countryside setting for a DIY wedding, Plas Dinam is the perfect venue. We were excited from the pictures but fell in love with it as soon as we drove up the driveway.

    The beautiful main house is constantly being tweaked and updated so for an old house it feel remarkably fresh and pristine. The grounds and the stables are gorgeous and plenty of room for 130 guests.

    Utilize the heavenly Julie as much as you like (we fell in love with her as much as the venue!) but equally if you have your own ideas of what you want you have all the freedom to run with it. Tyson is also always on hand for any practical hands on help you may need.

    We visited so many places where they had a set schedule for the day, where you felt like just any other bride & groom that they needed you in and out in 24hrs. Plas Dinam allows you to create whatever you want for as long as you want. For example we stayed for 4 nights and created a ball pit photobooth in the stables!

    We can't wait to return for our 5th, 10th, 20th wedding anniversaries!

    Perfect venue, perfect wedding, perfect holiday!

    We can’t recommend Plas Dinam highly enough as THE venue for your wedding or holiday…we combined both and booked this mid-Wales gem for a week so that our family could stay on after our wedding and enjoy a holiday together. Plas Dinam manages to balance the grandeur of a country house hotel with a home-from-home feel so you can relax and be comfortable.

    We had our ceremony in the drawing room which is a lovely light room looking out over the beautiful countryside and perfect for an intimate wedding for up to about 60 guests. Eldrydd can provide waiting and bar staff and is very relaxed about whether you provide drinks or they do and there is no corkage fee. In the end we just chose wines from their list and were very happy with the quality and value for money.

    Eldrydd and Tyson are the prefect hosts – keeping in the background but being on hand if needed and we would certainly recommend hiring Julie to coordinate the actual day of the wedding so you can just enjoy the day, take it all in and know everything will run smoothly. The staff are friendly and helpful and can’t do enough for you to make your day special.

    Plas Dinam is a fascinating house with large ground floor rooms full of character, beautiful spacious bedrooms and plenty of well-fitted bathrooms to cater for all guests. The kitchen is extremely well-equipped with an abundance of quality crockery and cutlery and plenty of storage space as well as multiple fridges, cooking appliances and two dishwashers which were in constant use!

    We had a wonderful week, none of us wanted to leave.

    Charm and character everywhere you look.

    We were lucky enough to be hosted by Eldrydd, Tyson, Julie and the team for our wedding in Spring, and we are genuinely, incredibly overwhelmed with not just the venue, but the little helping hands here and there to really make an event come together.

    The house itself is bursting with character, plenty of space to socialise with your guests and plenty of nooks to disappear to if you don't. Each and every room is uniquely decorated but it doesn't dilute the lived in feeling, it's almost too easy to feel at home inside. Plas Dinam lends itself well to entertaining, the kitchen is clearly an epicentre where family and friends came for a tea or a chat, the lounges are popular for an aperitif and the pizza oven was put to use one evening (on a make-your-own basis), which turned out to be one of the best ice-breakers I could've hoped for. Part of the appeal for us was it's ability to accommodate large families and friends for the wedding, and I can't fault it.

    The house is complemented by the Stables which have a history of their own, and is where we held our reception. It's both a blank canvas and a ready-to-use space in it's own right, and it couldn't suit it's surroundings any better than it does now. All the convincing we needed was a little tour of the house and the stables - they're a perfect combination.

    But all of that aside, the best part of our weekend was interacting with Eldrydd, Tyson & Julie. I can't quite imagine how we could've executed a weekend like that without some pointers, tips and help from all of them. We'll definitely be back - we just need an excuse (that isn't another wedding).
