Facilities and Capacity
Matara is an open space for creativity, where you can feel free to make the venue your own, adorning its walls in your desired colour scheme and theme. The centre offers six licensed areas for civil ceremonies and partnerships—three indoors and three outside—affording you an unparalleled opportunity to make your day truly extraordinary. The Asian-inspired Cloistered Courtyard is perhaps the more popular choice with its vibrant foliage and koi-filled waters. Affixed with a glass dome at its centre, the alluring Hilarium is both a banquet and dance hall, complete with five anterooms and extensive gardens. In between toasts and milestones, you are free to explore the renowned grounds with ample backdrops to choose from for those wedding photos. From the Stableyard to the Rose Garden, there is much to see, with many scents to enthral and inspire. For weekend-long celebrations, the venue offers accommodation for up to 28 people within the Grade II-listed Kingscote Park House, the Honeymoon Lodge, and converted haylofts.
As part of your exclusive hire, Matara is pleased to provide access to their incredible in-house catering team. Led by a talented head chef, they delight in producing seasonal dishes that cater to the wildest of imaginations. From alfresco dining experiences to vegan feasts, all food is made local, fresh, and organic. To ensure the setting matches your bespoke menu, in-house wedding coordinators will be on hand to help you prepare and organise your day. This includes access to a wonderful selection of preferred vendors, covering beauty, entertainers, photographers, florists, and more. Full details are available now on the Matara website, including video walk-throughs and a tantalising gallery.
