The Venue

An extraordinary venue. An extraordinary wedding.
Matfen Hall is a truly unique setting, and home to your unforgettable ceremony. We’re here to make sure your wedding is perfect, and that means personal service. Your wedding will be the only one taking place on your day, so you have the house at your service, all day long.

The Great Hall

Step in through the Lobby and across to the Great Hall, where a sweeping staircase will take you down to the large, warm hearth where you will exchange vows. Antique mirrors are fitted into the Hall’s grand arches, reflecting natural light from the centuries-old rose window. The Great Hall is the perfect setting for the most intimate part of your wedding day.

The Dutch Gardens

When the wedding ceremony is over, move on to Matfen’s private Dutch Garden for a convivial reception. Your guests will enjoy cocktails and drinks, with the option of venturing off into the surrounding woodland. On cosier days, head to the roaring log-burning fire in the Great Hall to enjoy mulled wine, cocktails, and warm drinks.

The Terrace Room

When the dinner bell rings, drift into the new Terrace Room, whose elegant neutral tones render it suitable for bespoke weddings of all styles. The relaxed, luxurious space comfortably seats up to 120 guests, showcasing views across Matfen’s gardens and golf course. Delight in wedding dishes of quality, taste, and exquisite presentation.

The Cocktail Bar

Done with dinner, but not quite ready for dancing? Brimming with character, Sir Edward’s Room is a decadent bar for celebrations, tucked out of the way to afford guests a break where they can indulge in fine wines and intimate conversations. This space has been finished with textured wall coverings in rich blues and greens, accented with artisan brass metalwork and Italian marble.

The Vault and Cloisters

The Vault Bar with adjoining access to the Cloister rooms continues your journey. Unique features contribute to a charming hub for dancing, buoyant celebrations, and merriness. The Cloister courtyard can be used throughout the day, and the festoon area is softly lit for magic and mystique, perfect for outdoor ceremonies, alfresco dining or your sparkler send-off when the clock strikes twelve.

Wedding Open Day

Our next open day will be held on Sunday 20th January between 11am & 2pm. This is an ideal opportunity to see the venue when it is beautifully dressed and meet a handful of our recommended suppliers.

Our wedding team will be on hand to discuss your day in more detail and answer any questions you may have! The event is free admission, no requirement to register – please just pop along for some prosecco & planning.
