We won! Matfen Hall crowned Best Stately Home Wedding Venue at the UK Wedding Awards 2020
Corks are popping here at Matfen Hall after we were named the UK’s favourite stately home wedding venue.
The UK Wedding Awards, which took place at The Biltmore Mayfair on Thursday, February 13th, annually reward the best of the best when it comes to the people and places who make those all-important big days extra special.
And the public vote gave an unequivocal ‘We do’ to Matfen Hall when it came to choosing the stately home wedding venue which goes over and above for our couples and their guests.
After celebrating 20 years of wonderful weddings last year, we were thrilled to beat off competition from Blenheim Palace, Hampton Court House, Brymptom House, Charlton Hall, Wrest Park, Thornton Manor Estate, St Giles House and Stoke Park to come out on top in our category.
Victoria Patton, our Sales and Revenue Manager, travelled to London with colleagues Laura McGonnell, Wedding Coordinator and Rachel Prince, Events Assistant Apprentice and was delighted to collect the Award on behalf of the Hotel.
She said: “It was a real honour to be selected as a finalist and we are beyond thrilled to have been named as the UK’s Best Stately Home Wedding Venue.
“Matfen Hall’s unique setting is a home for unforgettable weddings. Not just another stately home, our venue offers a modern take on a traditional classic.
“Our team are dedicated to and passionate about the role in a couple’s special day,” continued Victoria, who got married to her now husband Callum at Matfen Hall at the end of last year.
“We take pride in arranging and helping them create a wedding day which is perfect for them and their guests.”
The ancestral home of Sir Hugh and Lady Blackett, Matfen Hall has become one of the North East’s leading wedding venues, with more than 2,000 couples having chosen to get married in our stunning Great Hall.
Victoria said: “We know from talking to our couples that Matfen Hall offers something special on the most special of days, and we’re absolutely delighted this has been recognised on the national stage.”
Managing director Bernard Bloodworth added: “We couldn’t be happier to have been named as the UK’s Best Stately Home Wedding Venue and it’s testament to everyone at the Hotel who plays a part in making every Matfen wedding a wonderful one.
“It’s a continued source of great pride that so many couples choose Matfen Hall as the place to enjoy such a special occasion and it’s a real honour to know that people will have memories of Matfen Hall which will last a lifetime.”
