Church Wedding Venue offers Unexpected Surprise

Jane & Adam

23rd December 2023

When Jane and Adam Hutchinson were looking for their dream church wedding venue for a Christmas celebration, Ellingham Hall offered an unexpected surprise!

As well as requiring a venue for more than 120 guests, the couple from South Shields really wanted to say ‘I do’ in a church. And after falling in love with Ellingham Hall, they were delighted to discover a church only minutes from the Hall.

Jane explains, “For Adam and his family, it was important to be married in a church. We didn’t ask about a nearby church when we visited Ellingham Hall, but we took a wrong turn from the driveway after our viewing and unexpectedly discovered St Maurice church in the village. Everything then fell into place!”

NOTES FROM THE BRIDE

Tell us About your Church Ceremony?

It was perfect and the setting was so pretty and idyllic. You can access the church through a secret door from Ellingham’s private woodland and some of our guests took the short walk, whilst others took the transport that we had provided. It wasn’t worth hiring a wedding car for such a short journey and those who used the secret door enjoyed the scenic walk back. The guests said they got a real wow factor cutting through and seeing the Hall, as they headed back for the indoor drink’s reception.

Were you originally planning a Weekend Wedding?

To be honest, we had never really considered it. We are very family orientated, and the whole Two Night Wedding Experience meant that we could enjoy time with our family and close friends the night before. It was great having everyone under the same roof, rather than guests having to stay at nearby hotels. I’d not heard of Ellingham Hall because I didn’t know anyone who had been married at the venue, which is also lovely and feels more personal. It just happened to be quite close to some of the other venues we wanted to visit, so thought we’d visit at the same time. We had viewed all the other venues nearby and Adam was just so unimpressed. When we got to Ellingham Hall, his face totally lit up. We loved everything about it: from the beautiful building to the underground party Den. The whole weekend celebration was just perfect for us.

Had you seen Ellingham Hall dressed for Christmas?

We viewed the venue in July the year before, so we didn’t know how it would be styled for Christmas. We then went back with some of our bridesmaids, the December before and we knew we’d made the right choice. The Hall looked amazing with the grand staircase dressed with a garland of twinkling lights and the stunning Christmas trees. We always dreamed of a Christmas wedding, and it was perfect, so if you love that time of year, it’s a perfect venue for a magical wedding.

Why did you choose the Church over the Hall’s Ceremony Spaces?

For Adam and his family, it was important for us to be married in a church. Also, with more than 120 guests, we didn’t want to use the captivating Chapel as we wanted to keep this stunning space, a big reveal for guests for our wedding breakfast. It was so worth it, the Chapel looked so romantic with the candles and festoon lighting, the guests all loved it!

Was a Dog Friendly Wedding Venue important to you both?

Our dog Mabel, being part of our wedding celebration, was very important to us. She didn’t go to the church, and it was lovely because we hired dog chaperone – wishbone weddings to look after her, while we were at the church and throughout the wedding. It was great to have her with us for the photographs and to be part of our special day.

What’s your advice to anyone thinking of a Christmas wedding?

When you’re planning a Christmas wedding you should allow yourself to feel in the festive spirit because it’s such a good time of year and everyone is in a great mood. I viewed it as more of an enhancement of our special day, rather than everything having to be festively themed.

 We didn’t want to be overly Christmassy, and the two ceremony spaces in the Hall aren’t dressed with Christmas décor, to allow couples to add their own style. We had mistletoe and a few flowers such as bouquets and buttonholes. But we tried not to make it too over the top, because those lovely decorations at Ellingham speak for themselves.

Ellingham Hall’s Events Team Celebrates Triple Award Success!!

Wedding Industry Awards 2024

We are absolutely delighted – and humbled – to have been crowned the ‘Best Wedding Events Team’ in the North East and Yorkshire for an unprecedented third year in a row.

Our team was presented with the winning accolade at The Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA) Regional final earlier this month, at a glittering ceremony at the Vermont Hotel in Newcastle.

Being announced as Regional Winner for the Best Wedding Events Team in the North East and Yorkshire really is amazing. Having an unforgettable wedding experience requires more than a stunning venue and it was great to hear TWIA founder, Damian Bailey acknowledge our dedication for turning couples’ dreams into reality, for a third consecutive year. 

It’s the cherry on top of the cake, as our business has had such a fantastic year. In the past 12 months, our new parent company ‘Unveiled Venues’ was launched to incorporate Ellingham Hall alongside two new sister venues.

As well as Ellingham Hall, the Unveiled Venues group has added luxury wedding venue Lemmington Hall in Alnwick and family gastro pub The Highlander Ponteland to its portfolio.

Unveiled Venues’ Group Director Anthony Hunter said the TWIA award for the wedding events team had signified an amazing year.

“The fact the team has scooped the Best Wedding Events Team at the Regional final for the third year running, shows that Unveiled Venues has firm foundations,” he said.

“I want to congratulate every member of the Ellingham Events Team that has been part of this success over the past three years. This recognition illustrates the importance of creating the best wedding experience for all our couples. I am immensely proud of every single member of our team!”

TWIA brings together the Regional Winners from all categories, which culminates in a National awards event each year. After beating a host of events teams from across the North East and Yorkshire last January, our team collected a Highly Commended award in the National final.

Group General Manager David Fordham-Scott said it was a privilege to represent Northumberland and the North East for the third year in a row.

“We’re hoping to bring home the National accolade to illustrate what the North East is renowned for – its warm hospitality,” he said.

“TWIA uses feedback from couples to make its decisions. Knowing that this industry award is down to the experience and comments of our valued couples makes it even more rewarding, because it tells us we’re giving people the high standard of service that every couple deserves.”

TWIA’s National final takes place on 24 January at London’s Underglobe. Last year, we were Highly Commended and we’re hoping to top that in the 2024 Final!

If you are considering a wedding venue in the North East, contact our wedding planning team today.

Ellingham Hall’s Elegance Inspires Couple’s Wedding

Jane & Adam

23rd December 2023

When Jane and Adam Hutchinson were looking for their dream church wedding venue for a Christmas celebration, Ellingham Hall offered an unexpected surprise!

As well as requiring a venue for more than 120 guests, the couple from South Shields really wanted to say ‘I do’ in a church. And after falling in love with Ellingham Hall, they were delighted to discover a church only minutes from the Hall.

The elegant drawing room at Ellingham Hall also became the centre of attention during a game of Mahjong the night before the wedding. Playing the centuries-old Chinese game, helped guests who flew in from China and America to get to know each other – and it helped Jiaxing’s parents feel at home.

Jane explains, “For Adam and his family, it was important to be married in a church. We didn’t ask about a nearby church when we visited Ellingham Hall, but we took a wrong turn from the driveway after our viewing and unexpectedly discovered St Maurice church in the village. Everything then fell into place!”

NOTES FROM THE BRIDE

Tell us About your Church Ceremony?

It was perfect and the setting was so pretty and idyllic. You can access the church through a secret door from Ellingham’s private woodland and some of our guests took the short walk, whilst others took the transport that we had provided. It wasn’t worth hiring a wedding car for such a short journey and those who used the secret door enjoyed the scenic walk back. The guests said they got a real wow factor cutting through and seeing the Hall, as they headed back for the indoor drink’s reception.

Were you originally planning a Weekend Wedding?

To be honest, we had never really considered it. We are very family orientated, and the whole Two Night Wedding Experience meant that we could enjoy time with our family and close friends the night before. It was great having everyone under the same roof, rather than guests having to stay at nearby hotels. I’d not heard of Ellingham Hall because I didn’t know anyone who had been married at the venue, which is also lovely and feels more personal. It just happened to be quite close to some of the other venues we wanted to visit, so thought we’d visit at the same time. We had viewed all the other venues nearby and Adam was just so unimpressed. When we got to Ellingham Hall, his face totally lit up. We loved everything about it: from the beautiful building to the underground party Den. The whole weekend celebration was just perfect for us.

Had you seen Ellingham Hall dressed for Christmas?

We viewed the venue in July the year before, so we didn’t know how it would be styled for Christmas. We then went back with some of our bridesmaids, the December before and we knew we’d made the right choice. The Hall looked amazing with the grand staircase dressed with a garland of twinkling lights and the stunning Christmas trees. We always dreamed of a Christmas wedding, and it was perfect, so if you love that time of year, it’s a perfect venue for a magical wedding.
