Llanelly House Wedding Licence
Recognised as one of the most beautiful buildings in Wales, Plas Llanelly House, is now registered for Marriages and Civil Partnerships after being granted its first wedding licence from Carmarthenshire County Council.
Described as a Georgian “magical piece of history”, the Grade 1-listed £6 million BBC Restoration finalist, has been open to the public since undergoing its restoration in 2013; adapting parts of the House to provide a community heritage geneaology centre, highly acclaimed café and restaurant facilities, plus space for education and community groups.
Built in 1714 by Sir Thomas Stepney, Plas Llanelly House has significant national importance, reflecting the triumphs and tribulations of the Llanelli; embracing the industrial revolution and sparking prosperity in the area with the emergence of coal mining, pottery production and the manufacture of tinplate and steel.
The fine Georgian architecture of the House make it an ideal setting for private and corporate functions and events.
Speaking on the announcement, Claire Deacon, Chief Executive of the Cambrian Heritage Regeneration Trust, said: “Plas Llanelly House is a sympathetically-restored listed property, at the heart of the community, that offers couples of all ages their very own ‘piece of historical magic’ and a unique setting to celebrate their special day.
“The wedding planning team, together with our partners at the Carmarthenshire Registry Service, look forward to working with couples to ensure all individual requirements are accommodated, to suit all tastes and budgets, tailored to ensure each ceremony is very special.”
