Full Description
Matfen Hall is an exclusive venue for the perfect day that both you and your guests will remember for years to come, as weddings are limited to one per day you have the full and undivided attention of the award winning Wedding Manager and first class Master of Ceremonies. Registered for civil marriages and vow renewals, our Great Hall is the ultimate setting for the most romantic and intimate part of your day, with seating for up to 120 guests. Step down the Magnificent Great Hall staircase before taking your vows in front of the large feature fireplace. Our private south facing Dutch Garden makes a beautiful area for a cocktail drinks reception, then venture off into the surrounding woodland and estate, on a more cosy day take your drinks reception in front of the roaring log burning fire in the Great Hall. The choice of stylish and striking rooms for the wedding breakfast makes us a truly special venue. Personally designed by our very own Lady Blackett, who has a flair for interiors, the rooms are breath-taking and totally unique. The terrace room offers fabulous interiors, country house chic and gorgeous historic features which create totally memorable backdrops for a dining experience with a difference. Your evening celebration takes you to the newly refurbished Vault Bar, historically the cellars of the original stately home. The new décor creates a stylish and unique space for you and your guests to dance the night away!

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Victoria
Congratulations on your engagement! I hope you are enjoying the initial stages of planning your wedding day. I do hope you found all of the information that you require on our Bridebook listing, however sometimes it is easier to chat face to face with one of our wedding team, so if you’re interested in holding your wedding at Matfen Hall we would love to see you! If you would like to organise an appointment to view the East Wing, please get in touch!
