Wedding Ceremony Venue

LL53 7TT


Plas Glyn-y-Weddw is licensed for Civil Wedding Ceremonies.

In recent years it has become a very popular matrimonial venue due to its romantic setting. The gallery also has a full alcohol licence and quality caterers in situ. We can therefore offer a variety of Wedding packages, from ceremony only to ceremony and catering all-day bookings.

Please contact the gallery for further details. At Oriel Plas Glyn-y-Weddw, we can cater for your Wedding from ceremony to reception. What finer location in which to get married? On clear days the backdrop of Cardigan Bay and the mountains of Snowdonia are unrivalled for your special day's photographs. During the autumn months the woodland on the adjacent headland is ablaze with reds, golds and browns and the spring produces a fine display of daffodils. The grand staircase provides a dramatic backcloth for interior photographs as does the fireplace in the main hall, in which log fires burn on cooler days.

The Wedding Ceremony

The interior of the gallery with its Victorian Gothic architecture is the location for the wedding ceremony. Weddings take place in the main Gallery, which can accommodate up to 100 guests. The registrar who performs the wedding ceremony must be booked separately. Weddings are performed at Oriel Plas Glyn-y-Weddw during the hours as shown below and Saturday mornings if required.

The Wedding Reception

All catering for weddings is done by Caffi'r Oriel, who also manage the Gallery's tea room. The Gallery can accommodate up to 80 people for a sit down meal and 100 for a buffet. All catering costs are to be negotiated with the Gallery and prices vary according to requirements.

Evening Entertainment

Oriel Plas Glyn-y-Weddw frequently holds evening concerts with pianists and singers. Should you require us to source any entertainment we will do our utmost to help.


At the rear annexe of the gallery we have a self catering let that the Wales Tourist Board have graded 4 Star, that can sleep up to 12 people.
