What time do celebrations need to end?
We ask that the music gets turned down to a reasonable level at 12.30 and those not staying at Plas Dinam leave- “carriages- 12.30am”. The bar will also close by 12.30.
What is the earliest time we arrive?
The official arrival time is 4.00pm. However, it is sometimes possible arrive earlier. We suggest you get in touch 2- 3 weeks before your booking for a more accurate time. The Stables will nearly always be available from 11.00am on the morning of your arrival day.
Can we have friends over the day after our wedding?
More often than not the answer is yes, although please talk us through your plans. If you are planning another event with more than the number of guests in the house there will be additional costs.
Who sets up the furniture and moves the chairs etc?
We do, so you don’t have to think about it.
We decided to have an intimate ceremony in the beautiful drawing room accompanied by music played on Plas dinams grand piano, followed by drinks on the lawn and dinner and evening reception in the stables. The stables are beautiful with quirky features and stylish WC's as well as a bar and dance floor all ideally located just down from the house.
Plas Dinam was the ideal setting for our intimate family-friendly wedding. As soon as we drove up the driveway, we knew THIS was the place – a beautiful house (which hasn’t lost the feeling of being a home), space for our guests to stay over, amazing views and a huge garden for our nieces and nephews to explore." "Welsh weather played ball and we enjoyed the perfect weekend, from our wedding ceremony in the Drawing Room, canapés and champagne on the lawn, wedding breakfast in the Great Hall through to a wonderfully lazy Sunday including a morning’s fishing and an afternoon’s cricket match. Memories we will cherish forever.
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.
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!
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).
