Matara has had the pleasure of hosting Asian, Jewish, Persian and Muslim weddings. We are a licensed venue who encourage all our couples to have their own ceremony before or after the civil ceremony.
Matara is a venue that hosts tailored wedding celebrations that reflect the personal meaning of union for the couple. Set in the Cotswolds, on 28 acres, the venue boasts an Asian inspired Cloistered Courtyard, a banquet and dance hall, with a glass dome at it’s centre, alongside 5 ante rooms, and extensive gardens. With 6 licensed ceremony areas, 3 outdoor locations and 3 indoors, couples are offered an unparalleled opportunity to make their day truly unique. A strict one wedding per day policy assures a feeling of exclusivity and gives everyone an opportunity to truly relax and enjoy the day. With on location accommodation available for up to 28 people, including the honeymoon lodge, the large Regency home, and converted haylofts, Matara welcomes the wedding party to stay a while and make a weekend or perhaps a week of the big day. Our menus are made up of seasonal dishes freshly prepared by our in-house Chef. He is also delighted to create a bespoke wedding breakfast, catering to the wildest of imaginations. Meanwhile our in-house wedding coordinators are on hand to help couples prepare and organize their day from the moment they book.

Press & Awards
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.
