Summer Sun Shines for a Beautiful Outdoor Wedding!

Hannah & Ahmed

20th May 2023

The UK weather is always unpredictable – but that didn’t deter Hannah and Ahmed when searching for outdoor wedding venues in the North East.

As lovers of the outdoors, they had considered getting married abroad. But as that meant that some of their guests would be unable to join them, they started searching for outdoor wedding venues nearer to their Ponteland home.

They knew the British weather was a bit of a gamble in May! But it paid off, as the sun was shining, and their dream outdoor wedding became a reality.

Hannah explains, “Unfortunately it wasn’t a great summer in 2023. But for our weekend wedding celebration, the sun was shining, which was perfect!

The team at Ellingham Hall said it was the first chance they’d had that year to use the barbecue the night before, so we were incredibly lucky to be able to enjoy that.”

NOTES FROM THE BRIDE

Why did you choose an Outdoor Wedding?

We’ve always dreamt of getting married outdoors; we love the fresh air and sunshine. But we knew if we went abroad, not all our guests could travel, so it would have meant they missed out, which we didn’t want to happen.

Was it difficult finding your perfect Outdoor Wedding Venue in the UK?

We did explore a lot of venues that could offer an outdoor wedding ceremony. Ellingham Hall was the third venue we visited, and from the minute we arrived, we knew we didn’t need to see any others. We cancelled the other venue tours we had scheduled because we both got an instant feeling that Ellingham Hall was the right venue for us.

You could tell by the team who showed us around, that they really cared and were proud of their venue, which was something we didn’t experience at the previous venues we visited. We left feeling really excited and we loved the luscious lawns and walled garden. The appeal of the amazing grounds and the fact they were exclusively ours for our wedding weekend meant it gave us the perfect option to get married outside.

Tell us about the Weather on your Big Day!

The weather was beautiful, thankfully, and we were married outside on the front south facing lawn. It wasn’t sunny on the day we viewed Ellingham Hall, but we just knew it would look perfect in the summer sun – and it did. All our guests enjoyed the outdoor experience which included a relaxing barbecue the night before and lawn games on the wedding day. With guests from Greece and Dubai, they were happy that they could enjoy the outdoors, as they’re all so used to it.

What did your Guests think of the Grounds at Ellingham Hall?

They loved the grounds and enjoyed everything about the setting, including the treehouses and the woodland. The guests were outdoors as much as possible, sitting around the fire pit and relaxing on the Chapel Terrace on the Friday evening and again on the wedding day.

Most of our guests enjoyed drinks in the sun, before taking their seats for our lawn ceremony. We also hosted our drinks reception outdoors too and hired an ice cream cart as an extra treat. It was only the wedding breakfast and our evening reception that took place indoors in their incredible Chapel.

Even now, people still mention our wedding and say it’s one of the nicest they have been invited to. And they still talk about it being one of the sunniest weekends of the year. They have really great memories of our wedding.

Did you enjoy having a Two Night Weekend Wedding?

We really did, a Two Night Wedding Experience  was something we’d never heard of before. The fact we had people travelling from so far and they could relax and enjoy the entire house over the weekend was amazing.

It was great that so many were able to stay onsite with us. Some stayed close by in the village as we had so many guests. Those who wanted a bit of quiet time, had their guest rooms and various spaces within the Hall and grounds to go to. And because of that, our guests still mention how much they enjoyed having exclusive use of the whole venue. Getting the grounds and house for a weekend is just amazing.

What’s your advice for anyone planning an Outdoor Wedding?

Pray for good weather! Honestly, though, you can’t do much about that. But if you have a vision, just go for it. We were lucky to be getting married at Ellingham Hall because every single member of the team would bend over backwards to help you get what we wanted. They team always have a back-up plan to be married indoors, should it rain, which is so important, too. Plan for it and hope the weather behaves!

Why Choose a Two Night Wedding?

Are you looking for a Northumberland wedding venue with a difference? If so, you may wish to consider Ellingham Hall – because we are the specialists of the ‘Two Night Wedding’.

But what makes our weddings stand out from the crowd?

Our Two Night Wedding experience allows you to enjoy a more relaxing wedding celebration, as you and your guests take over the Hall and grounds from late afternoon the night before, until you’ve said your farewells, the morning after your ‘big day’.

This means you don’t have the stress of getting to the venue on the day you tie the knot. And because the night before allows friends and family from both sides to break the ice and mingle, this sets the atmosphere on the wedding day off to the perfect start!

Home of the Two Night Wedding

Since opening our doors in 2007, our family-owned wedding venue wanted to do things differently.

Our founders decided to offer couples the entire Hall and its eight acres of picturesque grounds and woodland across two nights of wedding celebrations. That’s because they understand how stressful it is, squeezing all of your celebrations into a single day. Also, as Ellingham offers so much for you and your guests to enjoy and explore – they wouldn’t want you to miss out!

They wanted couples to have the chance to spend quality time with their families and friends, enjoying exclusive use, so they’d never bump into other wedding parties during their Two Night Wedding Experience.

 

Over the past 17 years, Ellingham Hall has become renowned for its unforgettable two-night weddings and has set the trend for such an experience.

A lot of our success is thanks to our multi award-winning team, who feel like part of your family during your stay. The teams passion and wealth of experience in planning and delivering dream weddings is highly praised by couples. Nothing is too much trouble, and as a result, our couples have a wedding they and their guests will always remember.

From the luxurious accommodation, homely reception rooms, underground party Den and an array of alfresco terraces and luscious lawns and woodland, we offer something for every family member to enjoy.

For us, it’s the small details that make a big difference to your wedding.

Why Couples love our Two Night Wedding Experience

Since 2007 we have enjoyed listening to our couples feedback, which has helped us to continually improve our venue and wedding experience. Couples told us they love:

-Spending quality time with friends and family, so they have more time to prepare, celebrate and relax.

-Enjoying complete privacy and there’s no chance of bumping into other wedding parties at the venue or within the grounds.

-Mingling and chatting to guests the night before, so they don’t feel the pressure of trying to see everyone on their special day.

-Two wedding suites, so they can both get ready separately and enjoy pre-ceremony drinks with bridesmaids and groomsmen.

-Knowing that the months of planning won’t disappear in the blink of an eye as the wedding day itself passes so quickly.

-Not having to worry about the cost and hassle of transporting guests to and from the wedding venue on the day.

-Feeling more relaxed, without the anxiety and stress of a one day wedding.

-The venue is dog friendly and feels homely and not pretentious.

-Lots of accommodation onsite and they can enjoy breakfast with guests the morning after, to say thank yous and final farewells.

What Guests enjoy about our Two Night Wedding Experience

It’s not just couples who give us great feedback. Many of our guests have also commented on how they will never forget a Two Night Wedding at Ellingham Hall. They enjoyed:

– Relaxing the night before the wedding and celebrating with the couple, making it feel like a mini holiday.

-Staying at the venue the night before, particularly for guests who have travelled some distance within the UK and from overseas.

-Having more time to get to know other guests and family members they hadn’t previously met, resulting in a better atmosphere from the off, on the wedding.

-Taking part in fun activities that were arranged by the couple, the night before the wedding day.

-Tucking into mouth-watering food and drinks throughout their two-night stay.

– Enjoying exploring the venue and grounds, which time doesn’t allow on a one day wedding.

Top Tips on choosing Wedding Music for your Big Day! 

Remember your wedding day is all about you! So why not have the songs that mean the most to you played romantically and ambiently. Whether it’s a song that played when you
first met, a band you both love, a 90’s dance classic from a memorable holiday together – you don’t have to stick with the traditional and this can evoke real emotion and lasting memories.

Jane has a vast and varied repertoire. She plays a broad range of music and will learn YOUR most treasured songs for your important wedding day moments such as your wedding ceremony aisle walk. She can personalise your day to reflect you both as a couple.

The piano is a universal sign of romance, and having piano music for any part of your wedding day, from your Guest Arrival right through to your Wedding Breakfast, can add that touch of class
and charm to really wow your guests.

Wedding Ceremony

Ellingham Hall’s amazing Ceremony Room and Chapel are beautiful ceremony spaces for the piano to be played indoors to set the mood. This is where your most loved songs can really play an important role, for example when you walk down the aisle, sign the register and walk back down the aisle as a married couple!

Jane uses her musical ability to recreate your specific song requests as beautiful, poignant piano melodies that will make your guests gasp in awe, making the songs you’ve chosen sound ambient and wedding appropriate. Your music, your memories!

Drinks Reception

This is the best time to make the most of Jane’s extensive repertoire. Jane will work with you to help create a setlist completely tailored to you as a couple, from The Beatles to Blink 182, David Guetta to Oasis, Taylor Swift to Yungblud!

These exclusive versions of your favourite songs as well as a tailored setlist help to engrain moments in the memory and create the soundtrack for your wedding day. From 1960’s rock n roll to 90’s britpop, pop music to modern dance covers and everything in between, Jane recreates these songs in her unique style to bring something special to the day, and create moments with you and your guests that will be remembered forever.

Wedding Breakfast

Jane can play ambient piano music in the Chapel as you both relax and dine with family and friends, soaking up and reflecting on the memories already made on such a special day.

Again, your tailored setlist means you can choose to have the music you want played to really reflect you both as a couple, while also having the option to add in family and friends favourites too. Jane is bound to get your guests asking ‘I know this song?!’

Choosing the perfect wedding venue wasn’t a drag!

Hannah & Ahmed

The UK weather is always unpredictable – but that didn’t deter Hannah and Ahmed when searching for outdoor wedding venues in the North East.

As lovers of the outdoors, they had considered getting married abroad. But as that meant that some of their guests would be unable to join them, they started searching for outdoor wedding venues nearer to their Ponteland home.

They knew the British weather was a bit of a gamble in May! But it paid off, as the sun was shining, and their dream outdoor wedding became a reality.

“With helping friends plan their weddings, Ellingham Hall was already on my radar,” she says. “We had viewed four of five different wedding venues in Newcastle but I just got butterflies when I was at Ellingham Hall.”

No matter where they chose to be married, guests would need to travel some distance either north or south. “Ellingham Hall’s ability to offer exclusive use for two nights made that decision much easier,” Becky explains.

The flexibility of the rooms also meant that Becky and David’s love of entertaining made Ellingham Hall the best choice wedding venue in the North East– especially for a game of bingo, organised by two drag queens!

Hannah explains, “Unfortunately it wasn’t a great summer in 2023. But for our weekend wedding celebration, the sun was shining, which was perfect!

The team at Ellingham Hall said it was the first chance they’d had that year to use the barbecue the night before, so we were incredibly lucky to be able to enjoy that.”

Choosing a Two Night Wedding Venue is a No-Brainer!

Hannah & Ahmed

20th May 2023

The UK weather is always unpredictable – but that didn’t deter Hannah and Ahmed when searching for outdoor wedding venues in the North East.

As lovers of the outdoors, they had considered getting married abroad. But as that meant that some of their guests would be unable to join them, they started searching for outdoor wedding venues nearer to their Ponteland home.

They knew the British weather was a bit of a gamble in May! But it paid off, as the sun was shining, and their dream outdoor wedding became a reality.

The couple, who live just 12 miles from Ellingham, were also unsure whether their families would want to choose to stay for two nights. Georgia explains, “We weren’t sure if people would stay as, it’s so close, but we were wrong to think that. Everybody was there for the two nights, and it was fantastic because we got to make the most of our weekend wedding celebration. And it meant everyone relaxed the night before and got to know each other.”

Hannah explains, “Unfortunately it wasn’t a great summer in 2023. But for our weekend wedding celebration, the sun was shining, which was perfect!

The team at Ellingham Hall said it was the first chance they’d had that year to use the barbecue the night before, so we were incredibly lucky to be able to enjoy that.”

Ellingham Hall’s exclusive use means it’s easy to do that, so look at the venue and see if they can offer what you want. Be true to yourself and whatever you want out of your wedding.

What’s your Advice to Couple’s planning a Wedding?

Get a good photographer and videographer because the wedding’s over so quickly that you’re just left with memories. Being able to look at photos and watch your day back means you get a different perspective from the day. Also, don’t try to please everyone. It’s YOUR special day!

Home of the Two Night Wedding

Since opening our doors in 2007, our family-owned wedding venue wanted to do things differently.

Our founders decided to offer couples the entire Hall and its eight acres of picturesque grounds and woodland across two nights of wedding celebrations. That’s because they understand how stressful it is, squeezing all of your celebrations into a single day. Also, as Ellingham offers so much for you and your guests to enjoy and explore – they wouldn’t want you to miss out!

They wanted couples to have the chance to spend quality time with their families and friends, enjoying exclusive use, so they’d never bump into other wedding parties during their Two Night Wedding Experience.

 

Top Tips on choosing Wedding Music for your Big Day! 

Remember your wedding day is all about you! So why not have the songs that mean the most to you played romantically and ambiently. Whether it’s a song that played when you
first met, a band you both love, a 90’s dance classic from a memorable holiday together – you don’t have to stick with the traditional and this can evoke real emotion and lasting memories.

Jane has a vast and varied repertoire. She plays a broad range of music and will learn YOUR most treasured songs for your important wedding day moments such as your wedding ceremony aisle walk. She can personalise your day to reflect you both as a couple.

The piano is a universal sign of romance, and having piano music for any part of your wedding day, from your Guest Arrival right through to your Wedding Breakfast, can add that touch of class
and charm to really wow your guests.

Why Couples love our Two Night Wedding Experience

Since 2007 we have enjoyed listening to our couples feedback, which has helped us to continually improve our venue and wedding experience. Couples told us they love:

-Spending quality time with friends and family, so they have more time to prepare, celebrate and relax.

-Enjoying complete privacy and there’s no chance of bumping into other wedding parties at the venue or within the grounds.

-Mingling and chatting to guests the night before, so they don’t feel the pressure of trying to see everyone on their special day.

-Two wedding suites, so they can both get ready separately and enjoy pre-ceremony drinks with bridesmaids and groomsmen.

-Knowing that the months of planning won’t disappear in the blink of an eye as the wedding day itself passes so quickly.

-Not having to worry about the cost and hassle of transporting guests to and from the wedding venue on the day.

-Feeling more relaxed, without the anxiety and stress of a one day wedding.

-The venue is dog friendly and feels homely and not pretentious.

-Lots of accommodation onsite and they can enjoy breakfast with guests the morning after, to say thank yous and final farewells.

What Guests enjoy about our Two Night Wedding Experience

It’s not just couples who give us great feedback. Many of our guests have also commented on how they will never forget a Two Night Wedding at Ellingham Hall. They enjoyed:

– Relaxing the night before the wedding and celebrating with the couple, making it feel like a mini holiday.

-Staying at the venue the night before, particularly for guests who have travelled some distance within the UK and from overseas.

-Having more time to get to know other guests and family members they hadn’t previously met, resulting in a better atmosphere from the off, on the wedding.

-Taking part in fun activities that were arranged by the couple, the night before the wedding day.

-Tucking into mouth-watering food and drinks throughout their two-night stay.

– Enjoying exploring the venue and grounds, which time doesn’t allow on a one day wedding.

Wedding Ceremony

Ellingham Hall’s amazing Ceremony Room and Chapel are beautiful ceremony spaces for the piano to be played indoors to set the mood. This is where your most loved songs can really play an important role, for example when you walk down the aisle, sign the register and walk back down the aisle as a married couple!

Jane uses her musical ability to recreate your specific song requests as beautiful, poignant piano melodies that will make your guests gasp in awe, making the songs you’ve chosen sound ambient and wedding appropriate. Your music, your memories!

Drinks Reception

This is the best time to make the most of Jane’s extensive repertoire. Jane will work with you to help create a setlist completely tailored to you as a couple, from The Beatles to Blink 182, David Guetta to Oasis, Taylor Swift to Yungblud!

These exclusive versions of your favourite songs as well as a tailored setlist help to engrain moments in the memory and create the soundtrack for your wedding day. From 1960’s rock n roll to 90’s britpop, pop music to modern dance covers and everything in between, Jane recreates these songs in her unique style to bring something special to the day, and create moments with you and your guests that will be remembered forever.

Wedding Breakfast

Jane can play ambient piano music in the Chapel as you both relax and dine with family and friends, soaking up and reflecting on the memories already made on such a special day.

Again, your tailored setlist means you can choose to have the music you want played to really reflect you both as a couple, while also having the option to add in family and friends favourites too. Jane is bound to get your guests asking ‘I know this song?!’

Foliage

Classic and timeless white cakes finished with fresh or handmade foliage are timeless, simple and natural. Tying in with any design or colour scheme this is the one to go for if you can’t make up your mind.

Icing Flowers

Gorgeous handmade flowers made from icing have defiantly had a comeback over recent years. They can be made to complement your wedding flowers and look oh so pretty on any design

Image Katy Melling Photography

Staging & Dressing

Staging your wedding cake to look super pretty is definitely something to think about. Add candles, runners, a gorgeous cake stand or a few bud vases. Most cake makers now offer packages to dress your cake and make it stand out.

Little Extras

Add some sweet treats to sit alongside your wedding cake. Iced biscuits, macarons, popsicles are all pretty and add interest to your cake display.

Wedding Day

When I arrive at your venue, I like to make sure you have the most relaxing time prior to your ceremony, keeping a calm and fun atmosphere can really help with pre wedding nerves. I particularly love working at Ellingham Hall as you have a beautiful dressing room situated within Lady B’s Wedding Suite with amazing natural light for hair and makeup. It’s also a great space where you can retreat to for some quiet time but are close enough to the main wedding suite to be with all your party and the buzzy excitement.

I’m going to share four popular bridal looks for upcoming brides to consider for their big day:

Stunning colours and a lot of new friends were made!

Hannah & Ahmed

20th May 2023

The UK weather is always unpredictable – but that didn’t deter Hannah and Ahmed when searching for outdoor wedding venues in the North East.

As lovers of the outdoors, they had considered getting married abroad. But as that meant that some of their guests would be unable to join them, they started searching for outdoor wedding venues nearer to their Ponteland home.

They knew the British weather was a bit of a gamble in May! But it paid off, as the sun was shining, and their dream outdoor wedding became a reality.

Hannah explains, “Unfortunately it wasn’t a great summer in 2023. But for our weekend wedding celebration, the sun was shining, which was perfect!

The team at Ellingham Hall said it was the first chance they’d had that year to use the barbecue the night before, so we were incredibly lucky to be able to enjoy that.”

NOTES FROM THE BRIDE

Why did you choose an Outdoor Wedding?

We’ve always dreamt of getting married outdoors; we love the fresh air and sunshine. But we knew if we went abroad, not all our guests could travel, so it would have meant they missed out, which we didn’t want to happen.

Was it difficult finding your perfect Outdoor Wedding Venue in the UK?

We did explore a lot of venues that could offer an outdoor wedding ceremony. Ellingham Hall was the third venue we visited, and from the minute we arrived, we knew we didn’t need to see any others. We cancelled the other venue tours we had scheduled because we both got an instant feeling that Ellingham Hall was the right venue for us.

You could tell by the team who showed us around, that they really cared and were proud of their venue, which was something we didn’t experience at the previous venues we visited. We left feeling really excited and we loved the luscious lawns and walled garden. The appeal of the amazing grounds and the fact they were exclusively ours for our wedding weekend meant it gave us the perfect option to get married outside.

Tell us about the Weather on your Big Day!

The weather was beautiful, thankfully, and we were married outside on the front south facing lawn. It wasn’t sunny on the day we viewed Ellingham Hall, but we just knew it would look perfect in the summer sun – and it did. All our guests enjoyed the outdoor experience which included a relaxing barbecue the night before and lawn games on the wedding day. With guests from Greece and Dubai, they were happy that they could enjoy the outdoors, as they’re all so used to it.

What’s your Advice to Brides planning a Wedding?

Like us, incorporate your personality into your wedding. We really wanted entertainment, but if you love sports, include sports or if you love PlayStations, set some up.

Ellingham Hall’s exclusive use means it’s easy to do that, so look at the venue and see if they can offer what you want. Be true to yourself and whatever you want out of your wedding.

It’s official: our Wedding Events Team is one of the UK’s best!

TWIA National Award 2023

We are delighted to announce that the ‘Events Team’ at Ellingham Hall has been named one of the best in the UK after receiving a TWIA National Award 2023.

Our team was recognised in The Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA) after being ‘Highly Commended’ by the judges.

And while we were just pipped to the top award, it was a real honour to be the only North East Wedding Venue with an ‘Events Team’ in the National final.

We were handed the award at The Wedding Industry Award’s glittering National final event in London at the Underglobe venue in late January. The team at our Exclusive Wedding Venue beat dozens of wedding venues across the UK to be awarded the ‘Highly Commended’ accolade.

It was a real honour to represent Northumberland and the North East Wedding Venues in the National heats.

As our Director Anthony Hunter says, “To win at a Regional level for the second year in a row was a huge achievement for our business. To then take the team to London for the National awards and receive a ‘Highly Commended’, against a huge volume of successful venues in the Country was a wonderful feeling.

“The team has worked so hard and thoroughly deserves this recognition. I couldn’t be prouder. The North East often gets overlooked at National level despite having some fantastic businesses, however I’m pleased we could represent the quality of our region at this prestigious event.”

Ellingham Hall General Manager David Fordham-Scott says that the award was recognition for everyone who works at the venue.

He comments, “I am incredibly honoured to have not only represented our ‘Events Team‘ at the National Awards, and to have Ellingham Hall recognised as a jewel in the crown for the North East.

“TWIA is such a fantastic platform as it brings the Wedding Industry together to network, and celebrate each other’s success.

“At Ellingham we strive to take our couples on a very special journey, creating many magical moments along the way to ensure that their requirements aren’t only met but exceeded. This award is voted for by those couples which makes this achievement all the more rewarding.
