Thank you for making our wedding dreams come true
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.
A big, big thank you…
We just wanted to say a big, big thank you to everyone there at Matara for making our day run so smoothly. We really couldn’t have asked for a better service from you guys on the actual day and the run-up to it. You really do have a special venue there, and you were all so efficient and calm at a time when we needed it the most. All our guests were very impressed with the place and food, and they all had a great time and headaches the next day… which must mean it was good! So thanks again from us both, and maybe we will drop by at some point in the future to say hi. All the best, Mr & Mrs Manning x
We definitely chose the right venue…
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.
The best wedding breakfast!
“We would like to thank you all so much for making our wedding day absolutely perfect. The day ran so smoothly, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The food was gorgeous, everybody loved it and most said it was the best wedding breakfast they had ever had. The service was flawless; we barely knew they were there.” Steven & Gemma – married 13.11.2010.

“The Matara Centre is a magical place and a perfect setting in which to photograph a wedding. The woodland and beautiful gardens offer countless opportunities for photographs, and the group shot within the stone circle is a must!” As a venue for weddings, Matara is at the top of my list”.

The food was delicious!
The food was delicious and Matara catered for dietary requirements really well; the venue was unique and all the guests commented how they had never been anywhere like it. We were married in a church but, if we had chosen to go for a civil ceremony, I think it would have been our top choice as it is such a special place that you feel you would be welcome to return. We got married in the winter but Matara still looked beautiful and the outside space was used as there was a fire pit and torches. The staff were really helpful and I feel the Matara Centre could cater for any type of wedding or reception.
Thank you so, so much for such a fantastic day – words really can’t explain how wonderful it was. A lot of this is down to the professional, efficient and welcoming staff.
Creating a Paradise like Matara
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. All the best – Salamat Po! Thank you! Love from Maita & Andy.
