We would like to thank Holly, Abbie, Steve, Luke and the team at Matara for making our wedding dreams come true this winter. We were informed beforehand that they would be a member down due to isolation requirements, however we really didn’t notice any difference on the day so appreciate that the team were working extra hard for us. Everything from the venue, decor, food, service and entertainment was perfect. Dedicating our tree was such a special moment for us and we are so excited to visit again to see the team and watch our tree grow. After cancellations and much uncertainty trying to plan our wedding during the pandemic, the team really pulled through for us and we are eternally grateful for the fantastic memories that we have made at Matara
Planning a wedding during a pandemic is anything but simple, yet the wonderful team at Matara have been there to help us every step of the way. From accommodating a takeaway food tasting to last minute changes to our guest list. We are so excited for our wedding and are grateful for all the support.
What can we say...right from our first visit to the big day, we couldn't have asked for more. We had to postpone the wedding more than once due to covid but the whole team was incredibly helpful and kept us updated throughout. On the day, all of our guests commented on this beautiful venue and the delicious food. Thank you to everyone at Matara for making our day the best it could possibly be!
All the staff at the matara centre have been absolutely wonderful in helping us plan our wedding. We had to postpone once due to covid-19 and again due to illness and both times they have been incredibly helpful and communicative. The venue and grounds are beautiful and well looked after and its the perfect place to get married. Looking forward to finally having our wedding in 2022.
The food was outstanding and on the day everything ran seamlessly. We went for the Venu because it was so beautiful and had such a relaxed vibe. Luke (the Chef) and Holly (our wedding planner) went above and beyond to ensure I felt comfortable on the wedding day, as I have a pretty serious gluten allergy - they ensured the bar was completely clear of beer and other glutenous products, fully cleaned down the kitchen and spent the time to take me through the ingredients in everything on our menu so I didn't have to worry about a thing on the day! We went for their kiss me quick package, which massively reduced the stress as so much was sorted out by the Matara centre. We had the best day, thank you so much to all the staff who were involved in our wedding
What made the Matara Centre stand out for us from other venues was it’s authenticity. Some wedding venues we visited felt slightly like factories - a very fixed way of doing things, set times to be in and out so the next wedding could start etc. From the outset the team at Matara emphasised that our wedding could be completely unique - that they would be flexible to accommodate our wishes and that every wedding mattered to them. That extended to their approach when we had to postpone our wedding from October 2020 to June 2022 - they honoured the original deal despite a switch to a summer wedding and have been nothing but supportive. Plus the venue itself it’s stunning - it’s evident that love has been poured into every inch of the house, centre and grounds. We can’t wait to get married there.
Fell in love with this amazing venue. So much thought and imagination has been put into making this place incredibly special. The owner is a lovley man, and the staff are all warm and helpful. Cant wait to get married here next year.
We loved every second of our time at Matara in May 2021. We booked our tiny wedding of 16 people entirely in lockdown without seeing the venue, the team were incredibly helpful and friendly from our first interaction over email through to the event itself. Stepping into the venue it exceeded our expectations and at no time did we feel rushed. We can't wait to go back and visit each year!
The venue is beautiful and the staff are amazing! They have followed everything we wanted right until the very last details. Everyone is friendly and helpful on the day, and it made our day so perfect!
The wedding coordinators are wonderful too as they have ensure everything is down to how we wanted our day to be, even with our constant emails.
I cannot recommend Matara to everyone else more and if you do choose the place, you will not regret it.
