Celebrating two National Awards
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.”
