Luxe caught up with Alyson Thompson, Head of Groups and Events, to find out why Matfen Hall is such a beautifully unique wedding venue to say I do…

Everything you need to know on what makes Matfen Hall the perfect venue for your big day…

What makes Matfen Hall unique as a wedding venue?

At Matfen Hall you get total privacy, exclusivity and 300 hundred acres to make your own. The ability to make your day whatever you dreamed of is a real draw – we won’t push you down a certain structure, but rather work with you to create your perfect day.

How do you like to work with couples to ensure they get their dream day?

We really take our time to listen to what they want before we start offering our suggestions. The first question is always: ‘how do you envisage your day?’. Once we’ve started to create a concept, we work methodically in the run up to the day, ensure there is a comprehensive itinerary and we’ve checked everything off the to-do list.

Your favourite features of a Matfen Hall wedding?

No day is the same. Our weddings are a complete blank canvas, which is amazing, so it’s really hard to pin down one thing. But if I had to pick, it would be walking down the Great Hall stairs for a ceremony or taking over the brand new Cloisters Bar for drinks and dancing into the night.

Special details you have seen at weddings?

Best when taken exclusively, we have seen bands/DJs on the Cloisters Bar mezzanine performing to the crowd below; stages set up in the Great Hall for bands; a whisky bar/lounge set up on the terrace on a summer evening; multi day weddings with different themes for each day. There have been so many out-of-this-world weddings, and we’re incredibly honoured and proud to be a part of them.
