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....

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

Amazing, unforgettable and perfect
Venue Service

By Beth and Andrew Erskine, on 20 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 10 Nov 2018

I just wanted to send you an email to say thank you all so much for making our wedding day amazing, unforgettable and perfect. We knew our wedding day was going to be perfect, but it was beyond our expectations. Victoria you made our run-through meetings so comfortable; we felt like we were so well informed throughout the whole process. Lisa, thank you so much for calming me down whenever I was a bride-zilla! I am so grateful that you could talk to me on a professional but also an honest manner, you made us feel reassured that everything was going to be amazing. Jade was phenomenal. You kept us on track for the whole day and we knew we were in good hands. You made sure everything was perfect and I love that you put the fireplace on for the evening. Everyone commented how amazing you were and how smoothly the day ran all because of you. Brian was also amazing. I can't thank him enough for helping me look for my missing opal on my wedding night. The staff on the day were amazing. The reception staff, the bar staff, the catering staff and the DJ. Thank you to the chef who helped our cake maker fix the broken cake! Also the food on our wedding day was outstanding. I am always craving the cheese soufflé. Thank you to the evening DJ for having a great mix of evening songs. I was on the dance floor all night! I wish we could do it all over again. The venue is stunning, staff amazing and three months on it's all people can talk about. We are so thrilled we picked to have our wedding with yourselves and we will forever be grateful.

We could not ask for anything better!
Venue Service

By Catherine and Dean, on 08 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 27 Oct 2018

It was snowing when I got up on the Saturday morning, it was like a magic and we had the brightest sunshine in the afternoon, so we’ve taken lovely pictures. Thanks to all the team members for setting things up, serving the food and helping us collect all the gifts, especially to yourself, Victoria, Max and Des for the warmest help. We couldn’t ask for anything better than this Saturday and thanks to Matfen Hall for the amazing picture frame we were given.

It was exactly how we hoped it would be!
Venue Service

By Nicola and Mark Miller, on 08 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 04 Oct 2018

To Laura, A note to thank you and all the staff who worked at our wedding, especially Jade. We had a fantastic day, it was exactly how we had hoped it would be. It was relaxed and we didn't worry about a thing all day, thanks to the hard work of all the staff. Jade worked so hard with the setting up and all day was fantastic. The girls behind the bar were so polite and smiley, despite such a long day, it didn't go unnoticed! Everyone made it our best day ever - thank you!! Love Nicola & Mark Miller

More than we could have dreamed of!
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Endersby, on 13 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2018

Good morning Victoria. I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all the amazing staff for making our wedding truly magical, amazing and more than we could have dreamed of. I really can’t thank you all enough. Here’s one of my favourite pics from a sneak peak from our photographer which highlights one of my favourite rooms at Matfen and our first dance. We can’t wait to come back and place our lock on the bridge. Thank you again. Love, The Endersby’s

The most amazing day!
Venue Service

By Josh & Anthony ForsterTilmouth, on 28 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 23 Aug 2018

We could not promote Matfen Hall any more than we already have! The venue it’s self is the most amazing place. Being recently renovated I believe it has added a higher level of class to the venue also. As for the staff, they could not have been any more attentive and personal with us during our entire day!
