Why Choose a Two Night Wedding?

21st March 2024

Are you looking for a Northumberland wedding venue with a difference? If so, you may wish to consider Ellingham Hall – because we are the specialists of the ‘Two Night Wedding’.

But what makes our weddings stand out from the crowd?

Our Two Night Wedding experience allows you to enjoy a more relaxing wedding celebration, as you and your guests take over the Hall and grounds from late afternoon the night before, until you’ve said your farewells, the morning after your ‘big day’.

This means you don’t have the stress of getting to the venue on the day you tie the knot. And because the night before allows friends and family from both sides to break the ice and mingle, this sets the atmosphere on the wedding day off to the perfect start!

Home of the Two Night Wedding

Since opening our doors in 2007, our family-owned wedding venue wanted to do things differently.

Our founders decided to offer couples the entire Hall and its eight acres of picturesque grounds and woodland across two nights of wedding celebrations. That’s because they understand how stressful it is, squeezing all of your celebrations into a single day. Also, as Ellingham offers so much for you and your guests to enjoy and explore – they wouldn’t want you to miss out!

They wanted couples to have the chance to spend quality time with their families and friends, enjoying exclusive use, so they’d never bump into other wedding parties during their Two Night Wedding Experience.


Over the past 17 years, Ellingham Hall has become renowned for its unforgettable two-night weddings and has set the trend for such an experience.

A lot of our success is thanks to our multi award-winning team, who feel like part of your family during your stay. The teams passion and wealth of experience in planning and delivering dream weddings is highly praised by couples. Nothing is too much trouble, and as a result, our couples have a wedding they and their guests will always remember.

From the luxurious accommodation, homely reception rooms, underground party Den and an array of alfresco terraces and luscious lawns and woodland, we offer something for every family member to enjoy.

For us, it’s the small details that make a big difference to your wedding.

Why Couples love our Two Night Wedding Experience

Since 2007 we have enjoyed listening to our couples feedback, which has helped us to continually improve our venue and wedding experience. Couples told us they love:

-Spending quality time with friends and family, so they have more time to prepare, celebrate and relax.

-Enjoying complete privacy and there’s no chance of bumping into other wedding parties at the venue or within the grounds.

-Mingling and chatting to guests the night before, so they don’t feel the pressure of trying to see everyone on their special day.

-Two wedding suites, so they can both get ready separately and enjoy pre-ceremony drinks with bridesmaids and groomsmen.

-Knowing that the months of planning won’t disappear in the blink of an eye as the wedding day itself passes so quickly.

-Not having to worry about the cost and hassle of transporting guests to and from the wedding venue on the day.

-Feeling more relaxed, without the anxiety and stress of a one day wedding.

-The venue is dog friendly and feels homely and not pretentious.

-Lots of accommodation onsite and they can enjoy breakfast with guests the morning after, to say thank yous and final farewells.

What Guests enjoy about our Two Night Wedding Experience

It’s not just couples who give us great feedback. Many of our guests have also commented on how they will never forget a Two Night Wedding at Ellingham Hall. They enjoyed:

– Relaxing the night before the wedding and celebrating with the couple, making it feel like a mini holiday.

-Staying at the venue the night before, particularly for guests who have travelled some distance within the UK and from overseas.

-Having more time to get to know other guests and family members they hadn’t previously met, resulting in a better atmosphere from the off, on the wedding.

-Taking part in fun activities that were arranged by the couple, the night before the wedding day.

-Tucking into mouth-watering food and drinks throughout their two-night stay.

– Enjoying exploring the venue and grounds, which time doesn’t allow on a one day wedding.
