Matfen Hall is an historic, traditional venue that brims with luxury and style. Built in 1832, the Hall boasts many original features and offers all couples exclusivity of the entire East Wing on their wedding day, so they receive the undivided attention from the dedicated team.

Now even more breath-taking, the entire ground floor of Matfen’s East Wing has been refurbished, including The Great Hall and entrance area, The Terrace Room and Sir Edward’s Bar. The stunning rooms now offer beautifully modern spaces for wedding celebrations, though retain their original features and historic charm.

Discuss all things weddings with the dedicated Matfen Hall wedding planners and, even if you’ve already got your venue sorted, try, taste, test and talk to our handpicked on-site luxury suppliers.

There’ll be almost 40 talented wedding creatives in attendance, with every single detail covered – from bridal fashion, to live music and love lights, via cakes, floral displays, photo booths and much, much more!

Yes, you did read that right – it’s completely FREE for you and your whole bridal party to attend – we’d suggest bringing a bridesmaid or two to help with that goody bag!
