    Perfect Spring Wedding at Matfen Hall

    We were married at Matfen on 14th March 2020 and we couldn’t have picked a more perfect venue. It was the first venue we saw, and from the moment we stepped into the Great Hall we knew it was the one for us. It’s such a romantic setting and the new refurbishments only add to the wonderful charm of Matfen Hall. Laura, our wedding coordinator was so helpful and lovely throughout the whole planning process and she was always there to answer my millions of questions. The day before our wedding (the dreaded Friday 13th) we found out our honeymoon was cancelled (we were due to fly the day after our wedding), so there was a lot of running around trying to sort things out. When we finally arrived at Matfen - later than we had hoped - we were feeling stressed and a bit deflated, but Max (our brilliant Master of Ceremonies), told us they were giving us the bridal suite for an extra night – such a kind and thoughtful gesture which was greatly appreciated and shows just how much they care. The day itself was wonderful – everything went smoothly (massive thanks to Max for that) – the staff were brilliant and the food delicious. Max went above and beyond for us, even manning the photo booth later in the evening, she truly made it a completely stress free day! We can’t wait to visit Matfen Hall again and look forward to putting our lock on the bridge! Thanks again to all the staff for making our day so magical! Love Mr & Mrs Dixon

    Where do we even begin!

    Where do we even begin!

    We are just returning home after getting married at this stunning venue on Saturday! I can honestly say if you have gotten engaged and are looking for the perfect place, then look nowhere else than Matfen Hall. The first moment you walk in you are treated like family till the moment you leave!

    From start to finish our wedding planner Victoria has been a superstar and total made us feel at ease for the day. The day itself was just so perfect and Matfen Hall couldn’t do any more for us. It has etched a memory into our lives that we simply won’t forget!

    Personal thanks goes to Peter and Jackie for keeping us calm all day! A big thanks also goes to Des who nearly every member of our guests said he was a superstar.

    The prosecco record will take a while to beat I feel! Again look nowhere else, this place is da bomb!
