Matara Centre Spring wedding …
Set in the Cotswolds, on 28 acres, Matara Centre boasts an Asian inspired Cloistered Courtyard, a banquet and dance hall, with a fascinating glass dome at it’s center. Matara Centre also has 6 licensed ceremony areas, 3 outdoor locations and 3 indoors, so couples are offered an unparalleled opportunity to make their day truly unique. Nina and Mike’s Matara Centre Spring wedding was a humanist ceremony, set to be performed outdoors in the wooded glade , but was moved to the very beautiful cloister due to the wet weather. Nina got ready in the gorgeous manor house surrounded by bridesmaids and family. She walked towards Mike on her Father’s arm under an umbrella whilst the rains softly fell . The humanist ceremony was just too beautiful with such heartfelt and emotive words. I really enjoyed it and would love to photograph more Humanist weddings in the future.
After the ceremony we did the family photos and I have to say, that a wet wedding can create challenges for photographers with regards to group photos, but not at Matara Centre! My word, i found the most gorgeous indoor spot with beautiful natural light coming from the sky lights …and rain or shine, the Matara Centre offers fabulous photo opportunities. I took a stroll with Nina and Mike (and the umbrella) and we got some gorgeous out door couple photos for them. Soon after that, the guests sat down for the wedding breakfast set in the absolutely stunning banquet hall under the epic glass dome. The day concluded with a really fun filled lesson in Swing dancing. Such a fabulous Matara Centre Spring wedding and I cannot wait to be back at this quirky and unique venue…rain or shine : )
