A wedding venue in Northumberland has been shortlisted in the regional heats of a prestigious industry award.
Ellingham Hall has been chosen as a Yorkshire and North East finalist in The Wedding Industry Awards for the best countryside wedding venue of the year.
The shortlisting from dozens of venues comes just weeks after the Hall’s Wedding Co-ordinator, Wendy Sproul, was crowned North East Wedding Co-ordinator of the Year by The Wedding Guide UK in September.
General Manager Anthony Hunter said he was delighted that the Hall had been shortlisted for such a distinguished award.
“When we were told Ellingham Hall had been shortlisted, we were thrilled. The region includes the whole of Yorkshire as well as the North East, so there are lots of countryside venues to compete against. So to be shortlisted is very exciting for us.”
Ellingham Hall is an elegant country house that is set in its own eight-acre estate. Wedding parties can book the entire grounds of the Hall as well as seven luxury cottages for their guests, making it a unique experience.
Anthony added: “We always get amazing feedback from our couples about the Hall and grounds as well as for our hardworking staff. The fact Wendy won an award just last month and we are now shortlisted for this accolade is testament to the effort the entire team puts in to make wedding days special for our couples and their guests.”
The winner of the award will be announced on November 6 at a special awards ceremony in Yorkshire.
“Can’t thank you all enough for all of your hard work helping us plan and arrange everything so the day ran smoothly. On the actual day the service was amazing, all of our guests commented on how fab the food was and they loved the venue! Special thanks to Alicia for being amazing and always keeping me right with what was happening and where we needed to be! Everything was perfect. Ellingham hall is the most beautiful venue and has the best team!”

“Thank you all so much for everything you did to help with our Annual Forum and Celebration Concert on Thursday. As usual, I was a bag of nerves for much of the day, but the calm efficiency of Connor and his team helped to get me through. I will definitely recommend Ellingham Hall as a corporate venue. Surprisingly, a lot of the attendees were unaware of the Hall and what you’re able to offer. The fact that we could move from one room to another and have two very different events at the same venue was a big draw for us. “
Catherine Gray, Funding and Communications Officer – Northumberland AONB Partnership
“We have hosted a number of corporate events and the staff have always been superb in supporting us. Our guests are always delighted when they walk through the doors and get to spend a day in the beautiful surroundings. “

“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. “

“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.”

“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
