“The Matara was carefully chosen for its beauty and Asian fusion where bamboo and beautiful light is plentiful in the gardens. This wonderfully spacious venue creates a feeling of tranquillity and peace throughout. Couples will have a plethora of choice for their special day and be able to create the most stunning memories together.

Nowadays, more and more people want a wedding that people will remember, which could mean anything from doing a synchronised first dance that goes viral on social media, or arriving at the wedding on a tractor.

One of the most effective ways to make sure that your wedding gets talked about for years to come is to pick a unique wedding venue — especially if it showcases your personality, and matches your chosen wedding theme.

Luckily, for those of you getting married in Britain, there are plenty of incredible places to get married that will ensure that your wedding is one for the ages.

If somebody could just randomly invite me to a wedding at The Matara Centre I would be so very happy! This place though… the water, the flowers, the atmosphere always looks sensational. Gorgeous bride Catherine looks amazing in her Victoria Jane gown (bought from Krystle Brides), which she wears with a satin edged veil and pearl accessories and Jonni is a very handsome groom in his 3 piece Ted Baker suit. Images are by fabulous Cotswolds wedding photographer Martin Dabek.

We’ve featured a lovely selection of Matara Centre weddings on the English Wedding Blog over the years – it’s a fabulous and characterful venue which somehow makes for the most unique and vibrant wedding celebrations every single time. Today’s gorgeous bride and groom are Lily and Philip, who married in the summer. They were wed at St. John the Baptist church in Tetbury, and celebrated into the evening at the Matara Centre (which Lily’s grandfather owns!) It’s fabulous – you’ll love this! (Don’t miss the stunning floral decorations on the cake!)

“Our wedding was exactly what we wanted. Styling was colourful but simple. I love tulips so was set on these as my flowers. I pinned a lot of rustic type things but decided to put my own spin on things with colourful ribbon instead of twine and string.
