Together at Matfen
Every wedding, like every couple, is fantastically unique, but, you may be wondering what kind of wedding is on offer here at Matfen. We can’t give a wedding the justice it deserves in words, but we’ve outlined a wedding day experience to help inspire you and your very own big day.
Matfen welcomes guests as the bride prepares for her entrance. Enjoying drinks in the lounge or out on the lawn, it’s a great place for everyone to mingle, chat, and share their favourite stories of the happy couple. Let your photographer wander the scene and capture the full beauty of your wedding day.
The ceremony begins in the heart of the east wing, an impeccable setting for the most romantic and intimate part of your wedding day. Sweep down the monumental oak staircase, all eyes affixed as natural light spills in from the original rose window above.
Walking the aisle to meet before the feature fireplace, ready to exchange vows under the dramatic vaulted ceiling, tinged with starlight against the original oak wood.
Leading out from the Great Hall, guests are be entertained in our moody, sumptuous cocktail lounge with crystal lights, enveloping wingback chairs and relaxing music. Sir Edward’s Bar provides a relaxing space, with textured wall finishes, in rich blues and greens accented with artisan brass metalwork on the bar counter. It’s the perfect setting for prim and preened guests dressed to the nines.
Leaving Sir Edward’s Bar, it’s on to the Terrace Room and time to share the first meal. The original windows frame the spectacular backdrop of Matfen Hall gardens and golf course, and the room welcomes you in with high ceilings, period decoration and original pieces, so if the best man speech falls a little flat, the setting will raise the occasion no end.
Our private south facing Dutch Garden makes for a beautiful cocktail drinks reception, then venture off into the surrounding woodland and estate grounds, enjoy some quiet time as a newly married couple, or capture on film the first moments of your married life together set in the idyllic Northumberland landscape.
Dance the night away, sing your heart out, and sip signature strawberry blonde mojitos deep in the cellars of the original stately home. It’s time to let your hair down, kick off the heels and just enjoy your wedding with your loved ones.
Celebrate with the setting sun and party under the stars in our very special outdoor space. The cloisters and courtyard create an air of elegance, extravagance and intimacy as guests mingle amongst the iconic architecture, surrounded by stone archways and a canopy of lights.
After the happiest day of your lives, retire to your luxurious Bridal Suite, with grand windows overlooking stunning views of the grounds and golf course, a sumptuous four poster bed and vintage furnishings, the perfect setting to begin a lifelong romance. Head down for breakfast, have a coffee on the terrace, or head to the Spa to relax, recover, and reflect on a glorious day.
