The most spectacular wedding 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, and not your standard package deal. No other venue we viewed was able to offer 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 pandemic-induced uncertainty, 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 the decor simple, making the most of our gorgeous florals and some lovely table runners - everything looked fantastic. It wouldn’t be fair to write a review without taking a moment to thank the wonderful team at Plas Dinam. Throughout all of the uncertainty of the pandemic, Eldrydd worked hard to ensure 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. Both Eldrydd and Lou took on board the things that mattered to us for our wedding and worked hard to help make it happen which we are eternally grateful for. It was also a lovely touch to receive a card and gift from the PD team in amongst our cards and gifts from guests. 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!

Such a beautiful wedding venue
We have absolutely loved planning our wedding at Plas Dinam. We fell in love with the venue as soon as we saw it. What came after was the kindness and flexibility of Eldrydd and her team when working out 2 postponements due to the pandemic. It was really touching to know your venue wanted you to have the wedding you had hoped for just as much as you did. We have had such a wonderful experience and we cannot wait to say "I do" at this wonderful venue!

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, and 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!

The 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!

Perfect wedding venue, perfect wedding, perfect holiday…thank you!
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. It is set in beautiful grounds amongst stunning countryside and even the early June rain couldn’t dampen our day or the week that followed and the sun did appear just at the right moment for wedding photos outside and walking down to the Old Stables for the wedding breakfast. We had our ceremony in the drawing room which is a lovely light room looking out over the countryside and perfect for an intimate wedding for up to about 60 guests; it is set up with pretty chairs either side so the wedding party can walk down the aisle. We are locals so I was happy to find and organise our own wedding services, like hair, make-up, DJ etc but Eldrydd has a very helpful list of trusted suppliers if you need suggestions and we were really happy with our choice of Fingers & Forks from her list for all our food for the day. Eldrydd can provide waiting and bar staff and is very relaxed about whether you provide drinks or they do; there is no corkage fee which is good to know. In the end we just chose wines from their list and were very happy with the quality and value for money and it just meant one less thing for us to have to worry about leading up to the big day. 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; we even had some extra housekeeping mid-week, which Eldrydd was very happy to arrange, to make room for my daughter’s friends to visit for two nights to celebrate her 21st birthday. Plas Dinam is a fascinating house (do take a look in the museum and read about its history) with large ground floor rooms full of character, beautiful spacious bedrooms and plenty of well-fitted bathrooms to cater for all guests. The sheer number of rooms and layout means that it might take you a day or two to get your bearings! 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! If you’re thinking of making use of the pizza oven (thoroughly recommended) do take up Tyson’s offer of instruction to achieve pizzas that could have easily come out of a pizzeria from the back streets of Naples they were that good (dough from Andy’s Breads in Llanidloes). Although we didn’t get to do as many outdoor activities as we’d hoped due to the weather there is still plenty to occupy you inside with the children’s games rooms, table tennis and snooker rooms and we did manage to get in some tennis. We also managed to fit in a BBQ on the terrace on our last evening in between the showers. We had a wonderful week, none of us wanted to leave, and I would encourage anyone to do what we did, if you can, and book extra days after your wedding so that you can fully enjoy all that Plas Dinam has to offer.
