We’re the best wedding venue Events Team in North East and Yorkshire again!

8th December 2022

TWIA Regional Winner 2023

The Events Team here at Ellingham Hall is celebrating after being crowned Regional Winner for the North East and Yorkshire’s best events team category in The Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA) – for the second year running!

After we picked up the accolade last year, we didn’t really know what our chances would be in such a competitive category.

But thanks to our dedicated team members and our couples amazing feedback, we were handed the title again at a glittering awards ceremony in Gateshead last month.

All of our team members are excited to be recognised for the second year in a row, especially as TWIA uses couples’ feedback before making its awards decisions.

As an exclusive use wedding venue in Northumberland, it is an especially incredible achievement that we have helped the county stand out across the North East and Yorkshire.

Attention to Detail

Front of House Manager, Charlotte Langston, says she is proud of every member of the Front of House team.

Charlotte adds, “They work long and demanding shifts but never miss the attention to detail to ensure that a couple’s vision for their wedding day is fulfilled.

“I have watched the Front of House team grow in their skills and develop their relationships with one another which truly makes our workplace a happy and fun environment to be in. This energy translates to our couples and their guests allowing them to feel at home during their stay.”

A Fantastic Year

General Manager, David Fordham-Scott, says the accolade topped a fantastic year for the Northumberland venue.

“To win this prestigious award title is a real credit to our first class events team. But to win it two years in a row is truly outstanding. TWIA is such a fantastic platform as it is a customer-voted award which recognises the cream of the crop in the wedding industry.

“On a personal level, it gives our couples the confidence to know that they’re in safe hands and on a business level it provides welcome exposure and networking opportunities.

“I’m incredibly proud of not only the events team for achieving this goal, but everyone who works at Ellingham Hall. They are a fantastic team and pull together to ensure our couples experience an unforgettable wedding, which is why they are being deservedly recognised.”

Greatest Reward

Debbie Armstrong, Head of Weddings and Events, says the fact couples take time to nominate the team is the greatest reward for her and her team.

She adds, “We work so hard, paying attention to detail, with many hours spent planning with our couples, to ensure that as part of our Ellingham Hall Family they enjoy a unique and wonderful wedding day.

“From the moment of booking at the very start of their journey, and the excitement that brings to managing anxieties through answering questions, to the final hug before their departure, it is an honour to be part of their cherished forever memory. To have our couples take the time to vote for us through TWIA, and winning two years running, is the greatest reward for myself and my team.”

Icing on the Cake 

Executive Head Chef, John Blackmore, says “Winning this award has been the icing on ‘the wedding cake’ for the kitchen team.

“From creating the menus behind the scenes, to serving the dishes on the big day, getting this appreciation from the couples has been a very proud moment for the whole team.”


The team look forward to the National Finals which will take place on Wednesday 25th January and the unique Underglobe Venue in London.
