The hotel beat off competition from Blenheim Palace, Hampton Court House, Thornton Manor Estate and others in a public vote.

Matfen Hall celebrated 20 years of weddings last year and more than 2,000 couples have said ‘I do’ in the venue’s grand hall.

The UK Wedding Awards took place at The Baltimore Mayfair on Thursday, February 13, and staff from the hotel were able to collect the prize at the ceremony.
