These might include a tree dedication, wishing tree, a walk through the healing spiral, special readings, ice-breakers to engage your guests and music. Every memorable wedding has a theme. This could be inspired by a colour, an era, or even centred on Matara’s own style. You are totally free to create your own theme and we can help you make your ideas a reality.

Wedding planners Holly and Amanda are here to support you, to take away the pressure, ensuring everything goes smoothly and allowing you to have a relaxing, joyful day.

The Ceremony
We are licensed for civil marriages and commitment ceremonies. There is a choice of locations for your wedding ceremony: The cloistered courtyard with its ponds and pagoda or one of two inter-connected function rooms in the Matara Centre.

After the legal formalities are over, you are free to express yourselves with a ceremony of your own design. You can also choose to be married in a local church and hold your reception at Matara. We can also arrange for a Master of Ceremonies or Marriage Celebrant.

The Reception
Our glass-domed airy reception room seats up to 150 people. The room is 12m x 12m and its key features are the glass dome and the wall of sparkling fairy lights. Wedding couples can then make the room their own with their choice of table decorations, flowers, seat covers and so on. The Matara Centre also offers a number of indoor and outdoor spaces for guests to mingle as well as a bar.

Tranquil, beautiful and spacious surroundings
We have planted hundreds of trees including oaks, beech, apple trees, rowan and groves of magnolia. Land is set aside for wildlife and planted to encourage butterflies and bees. Skylarks nest in the meadows.Our food is fresh, seasonal, local, organic, from sustainable sources and free from animal cruelty.We purchase as many environmentally-friendly, ethical and organic products as possible.

Guest Book

“We want to say a very big “thank you” for making our wedding dreams come true. It was a truly amazing and most memorable day and it wouldn’t have happened without all the help from all the staff at Matara. Matara ran everything so efficiently, and nothing was a problem to deal with – thank you! All the guests absolutely loved the venue and enjoyed every part of the wedding day. Both families loved Kingscote Park house – an amazing house indeed.”

“Matara is a mixture of old and new, it’s not what you’re expecting to find; the house is grand, yet it makes people feel comfortable. Matara embraces you, it’s organic and alive and feels like a big hug. Matara welcomes whatever you want to do with the space. Bring the personality and mood of your party, sing any tune and have harmony.”

“Thank you all so much for making our wedding the wedding of our dreams! It was the most magical day and the thought and effort that went into it by all of you was amazing. We definitely chose the right venue and all of our guests haven’t stopped talking about the venue and how great the staff were. Thanks again.”

“Dearest Geoffrey & the Matara Staff, thank you very much for creating a paradise like Matara. It was an amazing place to celebrate our wedding. It made our day magical and solemn to perform our ceremony in Matara’s grounds. The weather that day was amazing too! We had a great time with our family in the house and made us feel at home. Thank you for your warmth and friendly nature since day one. Our dog Elvis enjoyed that day as well! The Matara’s staff were truly heaven-sent to make our celebration an event to remember over a lifetime! We had excellent service which helped everyone to feel great that day. We are both blessed to have found this amazing place you’ve created.”
