At Ellingham Hall, we always like to think of our team as a family. So, we were delighted when we welcomed a new addition to our General Manager’s family late last year. Anthony and his wife, Jane, decided to host their special naming ceremony at the Hall for their beautiful daughter, Theodora.
For everyone here, it was like welcoming a new member of our extended family and we had a wonderful day.
A stunning carousel at the front of the Hall greeted guests as they made their way to the Entrance Hall, where welcome drinks were available, before they headed to their seats for the ceremony.
One of Anthony’s family friends carried out the naming service for ‘Teddy’ who was the star of the show.
There was something for everyone during the day of celebration: children enjoyed the carousel, a bouncy castle, rustic tree houses and explored the grounds. An acoustic singer, magician and photo booth stand offered entertainment for the adults.
The Chapel was decorated by the Whole Sch-Bang event stylists in ivory and pale pink with bunting, silk tablecloths and stunning blossom trees and balloons. Imagery from the day couldn’t have been more perfectly captured by Phil Smith Photography.
Our Head Chef and his team cooked and served a tremendous barbecue, while the sweet-toothed adults (and children, of course) were offered treats from the candy cart along with popcorn and candy floss.
Anthony said: “We had a great afternoon with friends and family, and I want to thank all of the suppliers who helped us to create this very special day.”
We can’t wait to welcome you and your family to Ellingham Hall. So, if you have a new addition, we’d be happy to make your day as special as Teddy’s!
Catering for celebrations for up to 140 guests, we offer a wide range of tailored catering and drinks packages to suit your occasion, from champagne, canapés, right through to buffets and fine dining.

“The hall catered for everything we needed, from the luxury entrance rooms, to the grounds outside, which we used to talk with clients in more detail afterwards. It was exactly what we wanted to allow us to host a presentation of this size. Guests were welcomed with a selection of drinks and canapés in the entrance hall and then again on departure. The seminar itself took place in the Chapel, while the dining room and drawing room provided the perfect spaces clients to relax.

“First of all, we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the 3 best days of our lives. We can’t put into words how perfect our wedding was – thanks to you. Thank you for patiently answering all our questions, for thinking of every single detail, for picking up the phone a few days before the wedding, making sure we wouldn’t change our minds ???? For making us feel part of the Ellingham Hall family and for making our wedding day perfect.
We couldn’t have asked for more and can truly say it was more beautiful than we expected. You are an amazing team who made us feel so comfortable and allowed us to make memories we’ll never forget. When we were looking for a box to send the letter, cards, and flowers, we came across the box in which we received our wedding rings and it seemed like the perfect option to post everything. Again, thank you for making our day perfect!”

“The venue exceeded our expectations. Not only did it offer uniqueness, but exclusivity was a key factor in booking. The main Hall offered lots of space for us to work and we found the delegate rates very competitive. The venue comes highly recommended. “
Lisa Davidson, HR Director – Connect Health
“What stands you out from the rest is how pleasant and accommodating your staff are. What a team! Literally a flawless couple of days. I recommended you to Rosie and will be sure to continue recommending you to other family and friends. I would also add that the food was spectacular. The evening buffet is always lovely but the wedding breakfast was amazing. Thanks again for making her day so special” – Rob Marshall, Brother of the Bride

“Thank you all so much for everything you did to help with our Annual Forum and Celebration Concert on Thursday. As usual, I was a bag of nerves for much of the day, but the calm efficiency of Connor and his team helped to get me through. I will definitely recommend Ellingham Hall as a corporate venue. Surprisingly, a lot of the attendees were unaware of the Hall and what you’re able to offer. The fact that we could move from one room to another and have two very different events at the same venue was a big draw for us. “
Catherine Gray, Funding and Communications Officer – Northumberland AONB Partnership
“From first viewing Ellingham Hall on a virtual tour during lockdown to our wedding weekend the whole planning process was made so easy. Special thanks to Wendy for being so responsive to my many emails back and forth! Thank you to Charlotte and Charlie and the rest of the Ellingham Hall team who worked hard behind the scenes to make everything run seamlessly the whole weekend! We knew as soon as we visited Ellingham Hall it was the wedding venue of our dreams and even better that it could be exclusively ours for us to enjoy for the full weekend! Our guests absolutely loved it and we were all made to feel at home there for the entire time. The wedding breakfast food also got fantastic reviews from our guests with many saying it was the best wedding food they had ever had! We had the most amazing weekend at Ellingham Hall and wish we could relive it all again.”
