Perfect Wedding
Venue Service

By Angharad Jones, on 06 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 28 Aug 2019

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
Venue Service

By Natalie O'Connor, on 27 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 17 Aug 2019

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!

Perfect venue, perfect wedding, perfect holiday!
Venue Service

By Belinda Carman, on 30 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Jun 2019

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. NB: This is a shortened review as I was only allowed 300 words!

Charm and character everywhere you look.
Venue Service

By Scott & Steve, on 21 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 25 May 2019

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).

The most incredible weekend wedding venue!
Venue Service

By Tesni Bonar, on 09 May 2020Date of Wedding - 04 May 2019

It’s hard to think where to start when reviewing plas Dinam as everything was so wildly beyond both our dreams, and more realistic expectations! From first contact with Eldrydd and our viewing with Julie in May 2018 their service was characterised by friendliness and genuine warmth. Without exception every single person said they felt honoured to have been invited to stay in this incredible house and as though they had been transported to a different world as it really is almost cinematic. Each room is a delight and we featured as many as possible in our wedding photos, with the chaps getting ready in the billiard room and museum and Our ceremony being held in the great hall with its dramatic orange walls and stunning mouldings. The children in the family loved the comfy play rooms and the great variety of toys and we all appreciated the well appointed kitchens and two dishwashers! it’s amazing how comfortable this grand, opulent house feels when you’re there! The 360 views of welsh hills from the immaculate gardens take your breath away and provided the ideal backdrop for pictures. Moving on to the stables with its dreamlike glass roof, industrial light fixtures and vintage tiled walls was the perfect choice for our geek meets rock n roll reception. We can’t thank them enough for their support throughout the planning and exceptional co-ordination services on the day. They make it easy for you to do as much or as little as you want to yourself and provide excellent contacts for all the other suppliers needed. We finished off the weekend with s’mores around the campfire tucked away on a bank in the gardens at the front, just with our closest friends and family, exactly as we had dreamed when we initially got engaged!

Perfect setting for a unique wedding weekend
Venue Service

By Donna Kelly, on 17 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 18 Aug 2018

Plas Dinam is a hidden gem in mid wales, and it really does not disappoint! If you‘re keen on a wedding / event that doesn’t feel cliche, or similar to other weddings you may have been to, then I urge you to check out Plas Dinam. From the minute we landed and had our first visit with Jane we knew we had found the right place to get married - no sales pitch, just a friendly chat and the grand tour of the house: what I can only describe as utterly mind blowing! Once you’re past the beauty of the inside, then you need to take a breath before you see the grounds outside - views for days! The hosts are wonderful - so helpful, but really leave you up to your own devices (unless you need them for anything). Their attitude as hosts is ideal, very relaxed but with incredible attention to detail, and you’ll notice this in every corner of the house and grounds. From the welcome gift when we arrived, the beautiful flowers in the garden, the amazing lighting in the stables, to the thoughtful products placed in the rooms. I still can’t decide what I loved the most - the rooms, the grounds or the amazing stables! Our friends and family are still talking about what a fantastic and original venue it is a month later - there‘s so much room for creating a wedding or event that is truly unique. The atmosphere in the stables is electric, and it really isn’t like other venues we‘d seen. It was so special but we couldn’t have done it without Eldrydd and Tyson’s insight around suppliers, timings and other logistics and their friendliness to all out of our guests.

Perfect Wedding Weekend Venue
Venue Service

By Ffion Davies, on 26 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2018

I was lucky enough to grow up in the beautiful village of Llandinam. I'd been following Plas Dinam on social media for a few years and had already been eyeing it up as a potential wedding venue. Pretty much as soon as we got we got engaged we booked a appointment to view the house and stables and instantly fell in love with it. The main house is amazing, its still got so much of the original charm and character while still being modern. We loved the rustic-ness of the stables and it was the perfect venue for our wedding reception. It was just the perfect venue for the perfect weekend.

The most magical place...EVER
Venue Service

By Stuart and Kate Richards, on 16 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Jun 2018

We were lucky enough to find Plas Dinam on a search for possible wedding venues last year and we are so pleased that we found it. We booked the house for the whole weekend and filled all of the rooms with our closet friends and family for the most magical wedding ever! The old stables, which we decorated for our wedding reception were beautiful, the grounds and gardens were superbly kept and hosts were fantastic in the run up and during the weekend! We could not recommend a better place to get married or spend a long weekend with friends and family!

By Jenny and Guy, on 02 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 26 May 2018

We had our wedding here May bank holiday weekend and (Although I may be slightly biased) it was the most perfect setting. Eldrydd, Tyson and Julie are the dream team and I cannot thank them enough. From the laid back but ‘on it’ demeanour of Eldrydd leading up to the day, to Tyson’s unflappable help getting everything ready - which included moving 100 chairs from the driveway to dining room when the heavens decided to open 15 minutes before our ceremony, to Julie who greeted us with open arms and managed to keep everything running like clockwork on the day, cracking the whip but having our guests in stitches with her amazing ability to tread the line between fun and ‘this really needs to happen now, and you’re helping me!’ It’s DYI in its most complete form, and if you want that, then you cant really find it much better. No corkage, no suppliers you HAVE to use (Although their list of recommendations are great), and room for your 35 closest family and friends to stay for the whole weekend.

Absolutely Amazing!
Venue Service

By Emma and Jack, on 09 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 19 May 2018

Plas Dinam enabled us to stay alongside our family and friends for 4 nights, it was totally brilliant to be able to have our most important guests stay with us for a long weekend. The house itself is beautiful, every space is just so well put together. It had everything we needed and everybody was able to do their own thing but come together for group activities. The bedrooms were amazing and nobody had to feel like they were getting stuck with a second rate room! And the beds were fantastically comfy! We also had lots of compliments on the amazing bathrooms. The grounds and gardens were fabulous, and it definitely helped that we had four days of perfect sunny weather. Everybody particularly enjoyed being able to make delicious pizzas in the authentic pizza oven, and we rounded the weekend off with a campfire! It was also a bonus to be able to walk to a fabulous pub for a big group dinner. The setting for a wedding was perfect, with plenty of different spaces for the different parts of the day. Games and drinks on the lawns was super fun, and the stables were beautiful and rustic and we had the best time dancing until late. One of the reasons we picked Plas Dinam was because we would have the ability to DIY many elements of the day. Having the venue for 48 hours before the wedding enabled us to set things up exactly how we wanted things. Eldyrdd, Tyson and Julie were all totally amazing and we couldn't have pulled it off without them. They were present and available at all times without being overbearing or intrusive. Overall we are so glad we selected Plas Dinam for one of the best weekends of our lives!

Incredible wedding at Plas Dinam
Venue Service

By Gaby Sarll, on 03 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Jul 2017

Plas Dinam was the perfect setting for our wedding day. The house, with its 15 gorgeous bedrooms, huge kitchen, majestic dining room, games rooms (and more) easily accommodated us, our close family, and bridesmaids and ushers for the weekend. The house is so big it is easy (and fun) to get lost and we never felt on top of each other. The gardens and grounds, looking over the breath-taking Welsh mountains are simply stunning, especially the wild flowers on the front lawns in July. The barn, where we held our reception dinner comfortably sat our 115 guests, and we all stayed there well into the night to party. Making the decision to stay at Plas Dinam for three nights was definitely the right one. Having our loved ones with us for the extended period of time meant the wedding felt longer and we enjoyed getting the house and grounds ready together on the Friday, and all went on a long walk on Sunday before enjoying a sing-a-long around the piano! Eldrydd and Tyson were very helpful throughout the wedding planning process, giving us advice on local accommodation, taxis, caterers and more, and helping us set up the barn and coming to our aid with some umbrellas when we had a (short, sharp!) shower ahead of the ceremony. We have said we would like to return and celebrate our 10 year anniversary at Plas Dinam, it truly was a magical place to spend the weekend. We’d advise anyone reading this to give Plas Dinam serious consideration for any party/wedding you may be organising, it won't let you down! Thanks.

By Mark and India, on 13 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 17 Jun 2017

Whilst we have no particular family/ancestral ties to Wales (we're from London), we chose Plas Dinam as our wedding venue because it seemed to offer everything we wanted from our day. It completely exceeded our expectations. With rooms that could sleep up to 32 people all classily dressed, our guests loved staying there - the kitchens are well equipped, there's a tennis court and snooker table, and lovely reception rooms - you get exclusive use of the space, so it's not run like a hotel. What appealed to us about Plas Dinam was the DIY nature of it - this is not a venue who pump out wedding after wedding every weekend of the year and tell you what to do, so there's lots of room for you to stamp your own mark on it. Pick your own wines, don't pay corkage, find your own caterers (though their recommendations are worth listening to), end the night at the time you want, stock the bar yourself, make it cash or not, do it up, don't do it up, set up a fire pit for stragglers to have whisky round at the end of the night, bring 400 sausages for a bbq the next morning. It'll feel like your own day. We were blessed with the weather, but we also picked Plas Dinam because it's somewhere that would not be affected by a wet day - whilst the wildflower meadow of June is a huge plus, and the landscape it stunning, it's the indoor areas that make it. Nothing but happy memories from a unique venue that stands out from the crowd.
