Director Anthony Hunter said “The award is not just an accolade for the event team, it acknowledges the tremendous effort that every single member of staff makes for our couples. Being the named the North East and Yorkshire’s best event team is a real honour. We are now excited about going through to the national finals.”
The team will now head to London next month for national award ceremony.
General Manager David Fordham-Scott said, “the entire team at Ellingham Hall should feel very proud and he thanked the couples who voted for us.”
He said, “As well as our wedding planning, catering, and operational teams, we also employ staff who work on maintenance, housekeeping and sales and marketing. This award is a testament for their hard work too.
“Our approach is different to what is traditionally expected of a wedding venue because the couple and their guests have quality time to relax and immerse themselves in their surroundings.
“Ellingham Hall becomes a real home from home for our couples and their guests and a wedding to truly remember for a lifetime. Our team works on all aspects to deliver a memorable celebration. Every element has to work, and this award demonstrates the importance of doing the best we can to get it right.
“We’re now looking forward to welcoming couples to the Hall for VIP Open Days on January 16 and 30 to meet our award-winning team and experience what the Hall has to offer. ”
