Weddings at Florin

Aberaeron, Ceredigion, Wales, UK

Welsh tradition marries country manor house flamboyance here in Ceredigon at the fiercely romantic Florin. Take exclusive use of this stunning stately home and invite loved ones to join your unique wedding celebration on the west Wales coast. An extraordinary venue, Florin flaunts five acres of enchanting gardens along with wildly attractive country house interiors. Get lost in the romance and put on a party to remember. 



Set on the stunning West Wales Heritage Coast, just a short drive from the wonderful  Poppit Sands, Florin is a unique manor house exuding style, sophistication and singularity. Ideal for couples looking to tie the knot in exclusive private-home surroundings, it boasts bespoke service and plenty of inside and outside space to make all wedding day dreams come true. So, whether you decide on a traditional church wedding in one of the beautiful Welsh churches close by, or would like a private house affair, you can look forward to the finest of celebrations on your most special day.


This Victorian country manor house has been sensitively brought into the 21st century and has a style and class all of its own. Perfect for weddings, both intimate and all out celebrations can be catered for with style and class. To add a grandiose twist, the conservatory can be shared with the dining room to comfortably seat 50 for a sit-down meal in all seasons. Later on, when the hardiest of your party have eventually decided to retire, seven spacious bedrooms sleeping 14 of your nearest and dearest are spread over two floors, each boasting elegant interiors and views over the manicured gardens.


The tree-lined driveway on approach to this impressive property will wow your wedding guests and provide a dramatic entrance for the wedding cars. While its enviable location in Ceredigion will leave mouths agape, its secluded, romantic gardens with ornate fountains and secret pathways provide the idyllic backdrop for photographs you will cherish for a lifetime. To make sure all the important people in your life can be a part of your wedding, up to 150 guests can be accommodated in a marquee on the lawn where you can dance the night away with family and friends after the wedding breakfast.

From the owner

“The gardens are simply exquisite and almost have a romantic ´Alice in Wonderland´ feel to them; from the ornate fountains to the secret gardens and magical pathways entwined with roses, Florin is the perfect base for wedding celebrations in west Wales!”

From the owner

The house was built back in the 1890s by Lloyd Daniel Lewis the Bishop of Bangor; the curate of Dolgellau and headmaster of the grammar school. A pioneer, he managed schools in Bangor and Brecon and did much to raise the standard of work, raise the number of pupils and was instrumental in helping promising boys get on in life.

Daniel Lewis was known as the first Welsh-speaking Bishop in 200 years, and his own hymn book ‘Emyniadur yr Eglwys’ is still used to this day; we like to think that he wrote some of his beautiful hymns beneath Florin’s own roof! The house later passed hands, and was owned by William Lewis, a local solicitor who was related to the Liverpool based Lewis’s chain of department stores; the very chain that acquired Selfridges of Oxford Street in 1951.

Since 2012 the house has passed into its most recent set of loving hands: our family. When decorating Florin, we wanted to create a fun environment for adults, children and big kids alike. We fused the traditional features of this historical home with some modern and personal touches. It’s perfect for both quiet getaways and hosting big celebrations, and in recent years has made a stunning manor house wedding venue for some very special couples.

Guest Testimonials

We couldn´t have wished for a better venue for our wedding. We had the best day in the most beautiful venue, with the most perfect weather. Florin will now have a very special place in our hearts. Thank you all so much.

Florin was a very happy find for our special event and the owners help and support was tremendous and hugely appreciated. The facilities of the pool table, the hot tub and the garden room were fabulous. I already have a room earmarked for one at home when we finish our home renovations! We had one of our evening meals in the garden room and it felt just like a ski lodge. There are just so many areas that guests can use; for a small group there is always somewhere you can go if you want to have a quiet moment, a chat or a stroll. Equally, others can be having a more gregarious moment in the next room.

Thank you all so very much! Our wedding was perfect; everyone loved the house as much as we did. The catering was outstanding and the conservatory was the perfect setting. We had our evening reception in the cabin, celebrated with local beer, had the most fantastic wedding cake and the local Reverend was so helpful in organising our ceremony; he´s a real character! Everything here at Florin has been thought out so well, nothing was too much trouble. We are sad to be leaving and really hope to be back soon. Thank you for an amazing stay.
