The whole day was magical.
The whole day was magical! Our wedding planner Rebecca was sensational. The venue, the food and the liasing made planning our wedding 3 times due to postponing as easy as possible!!!! Will recommend till I’m no longer here, will be back to visit and am thankful from the bottom of my heart to have found the Matara centre. I got shown the venue by a client who also got married there so it’s a double thumbs up for me 👍🏼👍🏼 You wouldn’t be disappointed and it really is a special place for a wedding! Thank you!

Its a secluded gem!
We found Matara 2 years prior to our September 2020 wedding and fell in love in an instant, it feel like you're in a different world being there. From day 1 the staff were always so helpful and friendly, and when it came to covid they kept us in the loop even before we had chance to question any changes- plus the options that came with covid were so varied it meant we would still get the day we wanted. We we're fortunate enough to get two days at matara in the end, our wedding day 2020 and reception and blessing 2021! Nothing was ever too much for them, the grounds are immaculate and the food is incredible, everyone is still talking about it to this day! It's a secluded gem that definitely should get more hype.

Matara consistently took our breathe away
Had our wedding in august having started planning over 2 years ago. Every time we visited, both formally and informally Matara consistently took our breath away, noticing something more beautiful each time we came. Without a doubt a gem of a venue with wonderful and attentive staff to match. Nothing was too much of hassle for anyone.

Two absolutely amazing days
We had the pleasure of getting married at Matara twice, once in the midst of the pandemic in 2020 and also in August this year. The staff couldn’t have been nicer and we had two absolutely amazing days! It’s a beautiful location with a fantastic house it comes thoroughly recommended!

A wonderful place of tranqulity
The Matara Centre is a wonderful place if tranquility and you can feel the weight lift off your shoulders from the minute you walk through the Tori arch. The team at Matara are amazing and so accommodating. They have been fantastic in assisting us in our wedding planning and are so prompt to reply to any queries. Staff and the venue are so child and family friendly which is important to us and reflected in our wedding - nothing is too much trouble. Looking forward to our menu tasting in a few weeks. Thank you to all

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

The best weddings are always the ones that are a true expression of the couple. We encourage our couples to decorate all the spaces at Matara to their own tastes and have left the main reception room simple enough to accommodate all decors.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Concentrate on what marriage means to you as a couple and allow your day to unfold around that.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We have seen some amazing wedding favours. One couple, who got married this year, trolled their favourite charity shops for books with specific meaning for each guest enabling them to personalise the favours and give over £1,000.00 to their charity of choice. Another couple made a huge batch of the bride's grandad's damson gin recipe and bottled it in single shot bottle for all the guests. Love those touches.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Asian inspired; Regency influenced; gorgeous grounds; friendly, accommodating staff.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Hmmmm. That is a really hard choice. The cloistered courtyard is a definite unique backdrop found nowhere else.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Yes, and that is all we are at liberty to divulge ;)

What’s your favourite canapé?

Our Curried Roasted Cauliflower Samosas with Mango Chutney or Sautéed Garlic & Thyme Fillet of Beef with Béarnaise Sauce are firm favourites!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

We have just installed our own wood fired pizza oven. Anything coming out of that is divine.

The Cloistered Coutryard

What part of your business are you most proud of?
