Registered for civil marriages, we cater in a range of rooms from small intimate weddings up to 120 in the Terrace Room or Great Hall and up to 250 in a marquee.

Love and equality at Matfen hall; where all love is equal. 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 to capture on film the first moments of your married life together. 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 wedding venue. Personally designed by our very own Lady Blackett, who has a flair for interiors, the rooms are breath-taking and totally unique. Dining rooms to choose from include the very beautiful and intimate print room through to the elegant terrace room. All of the rooms offer 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 and enjoy sipping on our signature Strawberry Blonde Mojitos.
