We’re all celebrating at Ellingham Hall after being named runners-up at two prestigious National awards ceremonies.
Firstly, we were delighted to be named Highly Commended in the Best Independent Hotel/Venue category at the Corporate and Hospitality Show Awards 2019. Being the only North East venue shortlisted and competing against a large number of well-established and long-standing corporate venues, we were honoured to be recognised on such a national scale.
Our Corporate Sales and Marketing Manager Lynn said: “We’ve put in real effort to stand out in corporate hospitality. The venue only re-launched in the corporate sector late last summer, so be recognised in such a short space of time is a great achievement for our team”.
We were also runners up in the National Weddings Awards’ UK Countryside Wedding Venue of the Year category.
Again, shortlisted as the only North East venue in its category, we flew the flag for the region and were praised for our commitment to our couples and the first-class service we provide.
Our Wedding Marketing and Communications Manager, Rachel, said: “We’re extremely proud to be named Highly Commended in this category. It’s a real achievement and a testament to the countless hours our Weddings Team puts into making each and every wedding experience as special as the last.
We also wanted to take the opportunity to thank everybody for their kind comments during the selection process and for taking the time to vote for the venue since the shortlisted was announced in March.”
These achievements follow 18 months of recognition in wedding awards.
Our General Manager Anthony is delighted with the success. He said: “We have enjoyed real success and it’s always fantastic to be recognised by our peers for our hard work.
“We keep on proving how good our attention to detail is when it comes to weddings, which is now extending to corporate hospitality. It’s amazing how quickly we have made an impact in that sector in less than a year.
“There is a considerable amount of competition in both sectors, and I am immensely proud of what we are achieving. Unlike large venues that have separate teams, we all pull together as a family here at Ellingham Hall, and I’m convinced that is what is getting us the recognition our team deserves. We care so much about our guests’ big occasions – whether that’s a wedding or corporate event – that they receive an unparalleled service.”
“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
“Can I just say whole heartedly from myself and my husband Andy that we could not have had a better weekend if we tried and the majority of why it was so good was down to the beautiful venue and incredible staff who looked after us from start to finish!! Everything was perfection!!! We loved how you had thought about times for us to have moments just together it really was very special!! Everyone who worked our wedding no matter what part they played can you pass on our thanks as we felt we had the best team routing for us and looking after us on what was the best day of our lives!! Thank you is not enough!!”

“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

“Our Wedding was everything we wanted and so much more, the team at Ellingham Hall are incredible. We had the most amazing weekend, it was beyond our expectations and a huge part of that was Ellingham Hall and the amazing team. We’ve had so many wonderful comments about the venue and staff I could talk about it all day.”

“I booked a lunch party at Ellingham Hall for a very discerning group comprising of generous supporters of a local charity. We were 27 people and we enjoyed a Champagne reception before a delicious three course lunch. Wendy and her team could not do enough for us, our every request was granted. Dietary requirements were very efficiently and creatively dealt with and the result was a most enjoyable event at a price I was very satisfied with. I would definitely use Ellingham Hall again for a function like this.”
“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.”
