It’s such a pleasure to be a recommended Plas Dinam wedding photographer. I’m very grateful for the team at Plas Dinam for sharing my work and sending new couples my way. This gorgeous DIY wedding venue is simply on-point for modern weddings. This is thanks to its incredibly photogenic house, stables and surroundings. Plus top-notch hospitality from the team.
The great thing about Plas Dinam Country House is that you can stay all weekend. So by the time I arrive on a Saturday morning, the party is already in full swing. It’s no wonder Plas Dinam attracts super cool couples from all over the UK. Although this Welsh wedding venue is a little bit of a trek for me, it’s always well worth it!
Bethany and Sam certainly fall into the super cool couple category, having an outlook on wedding planning that’s after my own heart! Their wedding day was ALL about the joy and celebration. Together they created a welcoming, fun and informal atmosphere for their guests to kick back and enjoy the day. They made sure everyone got involved in their multi-cultural wedding. From Bethany’s bridesmaids in different colourful dresses to their excellent MC. And a full compliment of groomsmen by Sam’s side.
Colourful Wedding Photography
Colour was a key feature of Sam and Bethany’s wedding decor, which anyone who knows my wedding photography will know I’m into. I think having a colourful colour scheme adds so much joy to a wedding day and makes your wedding photographs really POP! Bethany carried a gorgeous rainbow wedding bouquet by Perfect Bouquet Full of Flowers and each of her bridesmaids wore a bold colour-block dress in magenta, yellow or cyan.
Bethany and Sam chose an outdoor ceremony underneath a colourful floral arch that really sang against the countryside landscape of Plas Dinam. It was the most perfect location to say I do and incredibly for April, it was really sunny and warm too! After the ceremony, the guests enjoyed the spring air in Plas Dinam’s gardens, before heading to the stables for the wedding breakfast.

The stables at Plas Dinam have a glass roof, making it feel like the outdoors inside. Bethany and Sam chose to have long wooden tables for easy mingling, which were decorated with colourful yet simple wild flowers. There were some fantastic little personal touches in their wedding decor ideas, such as displaying their parents singing the register photos. They also had temporary wedding tattoos for their guests to put on. Plus shots on arrival at the wedding breakfast. Now that’s a way to get your guests going!
In keeping with their informal theme, the couple chose Malaysian street food caterers 5 Foot Way for a delicious buffet wedding breakfast. I’m SO here for ditching traditional meat-and-two-veg dinners for something way more interesting. (This was one of my favourite wedding meals in 2022!) The meal was followed by some raucous speeches from the couple, Bethany’s dad and the best men. And the night of dancing was kicked off with a sparkler entrance and confetti canon for the first dance. Absolutely fantastic!
Sam & Bethany added a wedding highlights video to their Plas Dinam wedding photographer package. The highlights film was such fun to shoot and put together. I enjoyed watching this whole riot of colour again and again!
Congratulations to Bethany and Sam and thank you so much for having us along! Many thanks to Kirstie Garlick for second shooting this one so excellently whilst I was on video duty.
