Autumn colours provided a stunning backdrop when Megan and Shaun Molloy married at our exclusive Northumberland Wedding Venue.

And it wasn’t just the stunning colours in the photographs that have left their mark on the couple and their families and friends. Durham-born Megan says that their guests are still talking about the amazing memories of the two-night wedding experience!

Here Megan reveals more about their special Autumn wedding.

NOTES FROM THE BRIDE

Why we chose Ellingham Hall

We were first drawn to the two-night wedding experience when we were looking for our wedding venue. We loved the idea of having all our family and friends together for more than just one day.

There were other venues that we’d visited in Northumberland but Ellingham Hall was by far the best that we’d seen. Shaun knew as soon as he walked in that it was where we were getting married.

I was very particular about what I wanted to do. Ellingham Hall just seemed to tick all the boxes. From all the different bedrooms to how the venue looked, both from the outside and inside. And there was the exclusivity, too! We liked the fact that there would be no one else getting married at the same time

The Dress, the Cake, the Flowers

My dress was from Dotty Bridal in West Yorkshire designed by Madi Lane. The cake came from The Master Cake Smith and the flowers from the Whole Sch-Bang event decor.

Best Part of Your Wedding Day

That is such a tricky question! I loved the speeches and then that was followed by amazing food. Also, seeing the room set up was stunning. That was the first time we got to see the Chapel dressed with our flowers for our wedding breakfast.

And then there was the After Dark Experience. Having the wedding go on beyond midnight and having everyone there was definitely worth doing. Everyone absolutely loved it!

Your Overall Experience

It was all amazing. Everything went smoothly and worked well. We live in West Yorkshire, which is where Shaun is from, and being able to have all our guests who had travelled up together was fantastic. It gave everyone plenty of time to arrive and we all relaxed over the two days. It was useful because some of our guests were on their own and lots of new friends were made.

We loved how all the bedrooms were different and we really thought that our guests would have a good time. Having rooms where people can go and relax while others can party really worked well. There’s something for everyone. My mam was looking for my granddad at one point and she found him on the mezzanine taking everything in and watching everyone. He said he wanted a bit of time on his own to soak up the day and think about it.

 

Advice for Brides-to-be

Everyone will have an opinion before your wedding – like family, friends – but it’s your wedding at the end of the day, so think about what will make you happy.

We literally did everything that we wanted, and we had opinions about it being so far away for some people. But in the end, everybody loved it. Everyone who we speak to, even months later, go on about how good the wedding was and it was just faultless.

I’d also say be prepared. We wrote everything down, every little detail, all the money that we were spending and just kept track of everything to make sure that everything was sorted in time for the day.
