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, Chris, 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!
