A unique and beautiful wedding venue in the Cotwolds, Gloucestershire. Set in stunning gardens - ideal for outdoor weddings and civil ceremonies. A place of beauty and tranquillity, Matara at Kingscote Park is set within 28 acres of glorious Cotswolds parkland.
Matara has been built on earth-friendly principles and provides the perfect setting for you to celebrate in a personal and individual way.
Our glass-domed airy reception room seats up to 150 (220 for evening). 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.
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.
Create your own vows with our help - words that express your own values and beliefs.
