    Dream venue and location

    My partner and I were looking for a venue that we could make our own (no packages, strict guidelines or standard decor) and came across Plas Dinam shortly after getting engaged. The house/venue is even more beautiful in person and I lost count of how many guests fell in love with the place, I can highly recommend it for a wedding or even just a group getaway. We also loved that the house had family history and was more relaxed than some other places we visited, which comes through when meeting Eldrydd and Tyson.

    Eldrydd and the team were accommodating and patient with us as we had to reschedule our wedding due to COVID, despite having a weekday wedding it was more than we could have ever imagined! All our vendors did the most amazing job and only enhanced the already beautiful space.

    I have to give a special shout out to Katie, our coordinator who went above and beyond the usual venue coordinator duties not only on the day but in the weeks and months leading up to it. She was a calm and organised voice on the day, helping make decisions I didn't have the headspace or time to think about.

    We spent three full days at Plas Dinam exploring the grounds and making use of the facilities - I highly recommend using the pizza oven, it was great fun for our us and our guests!

    Magical, Classical, Botanical. The dream wedding we never thought we'd have.

    An amazing venue with staff that easily matched.
    We planned our wedding from New Zealand for 09/21; however due to COVID things got delayed. Eldrydd kindly showed us round the venue via zoom and we were able to change our dates for the following year without any issue.
    The help from Lou leading up to the big day as well as on the day itself was more than we could have hoped for and allowed us to enjoy the day without having to worry about the details. She also helped us think and organize things we hadn’t originally thought of, the best wedding coordinator we could have asked for.
    In terms of the venue itself, there were so many options for the ceremony, and we originally planned to have our wedding on the picturesque back lawn however our plans were thwarted by the rain! Thankfully during the summertime, they have a large stretch tent permanently up, so we were able to have the outdoor wedding we always wanted and because of the amazing house, drinks and canapés were seamlessly moved inside by the staff then outside when the weather finally cleared up. The stables were in themselves spectacular but also very easy to decorate and put our own personal touches to make it match our wedding themes.

    Choosing to spend extra days in the house itself was the best decision we made, all the rooms were beautifully furnished and clean and even came with bathrobes! We only wish we would have been able to stay longer to fully enjoy it all. Accommodation for guests was also readily available via the glamping tents, we only wish ore had used them.

    Everyone who came to the wedding was amazed by the venue, it truly is a magical place and could not recommend Plas Dinam and the team more.

    The perfect wedding venue

    This really is the ideal wedding venue. We rented the whole house from Wednesday to Sunday, which was the perfect way to extend the celebrations. Our guests filled every bedroom and raved about their stay. Each room has its own look and feel, and the views of the grounds are breathtaking. We also rented out the lodge and glamping tents, which were amazing and meant that we could have lots of our family and friends on site with us, too. The entire team at Plas Dinam were incredibly helpful from start to finish and made the entire planning process stress-free. The house is filled with everything you could possibly need for your stay - including a pizza oven! The stables, where we had our reception, is a blank canvas, so you can be as creative with the space as you like, which we loved. The location is stunning, with beautiful walks nearby. We can't recommend it enough!

    Unique and beautiful venue

    Plas Dinam was the perfect wedding venue. We rented the whole house from Friday to Sunday and filled the bedrooms with guests which made for a great extended weekend of celebrations. Katie and Eldrydd really helped us make the place feel like our own and we felt so relaxed and comfortable whilst planning and during the weekend itself. They were also on hand and happy to help with anything we needed. When looking at other venues we found it was rare to truly have such a beautiful venue and then be able to build your own unique wedding day from scratch with as much or as little guidance as wanted or needed. Would highly recommend as a wedding venue.

    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!

    Beautiful Venue

    Plas Dinam was the perfect venue for our wedding. The location is beautiful and the stables allow you to be as creative as you want. Eldrydd, Tyson, Katie and the rest of the team were amazing at helping with everything from start to finish. The are supportive and always on hand if you have any questions. The weather didn’t look great in the morning and the Plas Dinam team were so accommodating In letting us have multiple options depending on what the weather did, eventually the sun came out at the perfect moment and we had our ceremony on the back lawn overlooking the beautiful views. Guests have not stopped telling us what a brilliant day they had. We stayed over the weekend which made the recovery slightly easier not having to rush off! The whole weekend was relaxed everything we were hoping for. Could not recommend Plas Dinam enough!

    Magical location for a memorable occasion

    We are so pleased we chose Plas Dinam as a venue for our wedding celebrations of Charlotte and Adam. Eldrydd, Tyson, Louise and their team could not have done more to make it such a memorable, special time for us. They provided great support in the planning of the wedding and were happy to share their knowledge and experience of how to make the optimum use of the amazing house and grounds for the whole wedding weekend. The house, bedrooms and main rooms are to a very high standard. All of the bedrooms are comfortable and well furnished. The stables providde a perfect space for the wedding celebration.
    We would highly recommend Plas Dinam for anyone looking for a wedding venue.

    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.
