How Green is your Supplier?


How Green is your Supplier?

So we've put together a ten point criteria, the Green Gauge, that we ask all our partners, your wedding suppliers, to comply with for your peace of mind. The wedding industry covers a broad activity base and you will have your own benchmark of how 'green' you want your suppliers to be. We happily accept wedding suppliers who are trying their best and can check 4 or more criteria on our Green Gauge.

The Matara Centre - Natural & Spiritual

A Social Enterprise committed to wellbeing for people and planet and reflect this in everything we do, Matara attracts people who love nature, care about their own psychological and spiritual growth, have a positive attitude to the future and want to bring out the best in all those around them. 

Kingscote House brings people together to celebrate life in a Cotswolds idyll. The huge, light hall embraces you from the moment you set foot in the door. Big, light rooms with high ceilings open up around you, while the farmhouse kitchen is the heart of the house. This is the place to reaffirm family ties and, later, for you all to talk about the wonderful celebration you’ve had.

Bohemian, East-West fusion with Chinese Cloistered Courtyard for outdoor civil wedding ceremonies. 

Photogenic earth-friendly gardens of tranquil beauty. 

Barefoot trail. 

Freedom to create your own wedding vows and blessings. 

Walk the spiral maze and labyrinth. 

Tie a ribbon to our Wishing Tree...

Dance among our 28 acres.

We prepare all wedding feasts with love and care from scratch and can cater to any dietary requirements.  The heart of our wellbeing programme is nutrition.  Our organic vegetables are sourced from Community Farms.  We cook seasonally; we start with the vegetables and continue according to your taste.

We believe friends and family of all ages should be part of a wedding celebration, and we go out of our way to make Matara a friendly place with lots for children to do, and will come up with ideas to entertain them throughout the day.

We offer complimentary couple workshops as we feel this is a gift we can give which will help you form happy, sustainable relationships.
