We had the most amazing, magical day!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Kerr, on 01 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 18 Aug 2019

We had the most amazing, magical day. Everyone was blown away by the venue and the staff were outstanding....from start to finish we couldn't have asked for anything more. We will be forever grateful. Our guests said "the best food we've ever had" "the best wedding we've ever been to" so all that stress and crying was worth every tear because we would do it all over again in a heart beat!

It was just perfect!

Peter and Sophie were exemplary assisting us during our wedding day. Jackie who served us during the day and kept my husband right whilst setting up for the big day. Lisa and Rachel from events were so helpful and approachable on the lead up to the wedding. Tim who kept our guests dancing all night, whatever age. All the staff were outstanding but the above made a huge impact on what was an amazing day!

Helen & Robert's Magical Wedding at Matfen Hall Helen and Robert only went to one wedding fair and it was at Matfen Hall, and the stately home ended up being the venue of their dreams. The venue’s skillful mix of traditional sensibility and unique character stole the couple’s hearts, while the exemplary staff and service meant that Helen and Robert could enjoy their day without without worrying about any of the finer details.

What can we say, what a magical day Saturday was!
Venue Service

By Lucy and Steven Traill, on 19 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Dec 2018

What can we say- what a magical day Saturday was. We can't thank all of you enough or put into words how amazing you made the day for us and all of our guests. You Victoria have been fantastic and always spent the time replying to my many questions which I am so so grateful for as has Laura. Maxine on the day was fabulous and made the day run like clockwork. It was so great having her there to help the day run smoothly and my family also commented on how fantastic and approachable she was. Every member of staff was brilliant and so diligent. The food was incredible and a guest commented that you had mass produced library restaurant standard food ...something he didn't know if you would be able to do .... and you did incredibly. Many guests commented on the fabulous melt in the mouth beef! There was a lovely man called des maybe who looked after us all fantastically. There were also some lovely staff including him I think who brought us heaters during the wedding breakfast which was so kind. Tim was also amazing and many guests commented on this. Lucy was also incredible and I have thanked her personally. There was also a lovely lady on reception when I checked in who was so kind and helpful. The lovely waiting staff who brought us room service and delivered my flowers were so professional. Lastly the man who helped us organise and load up our car was great and so helpful. I hope I haven't forgotten anyone. The guests all commented on how amazing a venue Matfen was and we were so proud to have chosen it as our venue. We can't wait to return.... Lucy and Steven Traill x

I would not change one single thing about the day!
Venue Service

By Janis Davidson, on 08 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Nov 2018

At every opportunity I extol the virtues of every single person who kept me sane and allowed the couple to have such a magnificent, and personal, wedding. It is still the talk of our church. So much so, that I have become the wedding liaison link within our church for all the couples hoping to be married. I LOVE it and I get to re-live Alex and Paulo’s day over and over again with them. I was so fortunate to meet incredible and thoughtful people, who went the ‘extra mile’ for us. I will never forget the patience everyone showed our family. I can not put into words how appreciative I was of all the time taken with us (and I missed the contact with everyone when the wedding was over). Thank you again for making us all feel so special and for your amazing attention to detail. I wouldn’t change one single thing about the day. With love, Janis Davidson
