What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Remember this is your wedding! Our favourite weddings always include special personal touches that convey the couples story, hobbies or things they are known for - take inspiration from others (of course!) but use what is relevant to you two as that is what your guests will remember.
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
This is a hard one! There are so many gorgeous spots on our estate - we have a beautiful old bridge a short stroll on to the Golf Course, it perfectly aligns the building as the backdrop (& at the right time of day, a beautiful golden sunset), there is a little stream that flows underneath the bridge too.
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
That would be telling!
What is your venue's most unique feature?
Our Great Hall - there is nothing quite like it. The magnificent oak staircase, the open fire, antique mirrors and stunning rose window are a magical combination.
What part of your business are you most proud of?
Our staff - we have team members that have been here since we first opened! We are a big family and love that couples make Matfen their home from home for the day.
