VENUE Ellingham Hall

The events team behind a Ellingham Hall’s wedding venue has been crowned the best in the North East and Yorkshire for an unprecedented third year in a row.

Ellingham hall events team scooped up the winning accolade at the regional final of The Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA) at a glittering ceremony at Newcastle’s Vermont Hotel on Monday 6 November. The team at Ellingham Hall specialise in exclusive-use two-night wedding celebrations and have made dreams come true for hundreds of couples over the years. In 2022, the 19th century Ellingham Hall was joined by 18th century mansion Lemmington Hall as an intimate luxury wedding venue, adding to this group's illustrious portfolio of venues.

The award comes in a hugely successful year that has seen significant growth for the business with the launch of their new parent company, Unveiled Venues. Unveiled Venues was launched to bring together the Ellingham Hall and Lemmington Hall wedding venues under one brand.

As well as Ellingham Hall and Lemmington Hall, the group has also added a family gastro pub, The Highlander Ponteland to its business portfolio.

Unveiled Venues’ Group Director Anthony Hunter said the award for the events team had signified an amazing year.

“The fact the team has achieved the Best Events Team at the regional final for the third year running, shows that Unveiled Venues has firm foundations,” he said.

“I want to congratulate every member of our team that has been part of this success over the past three years. This recognition illustrates the importance of creating the best wedding experience for all our couples. I am immensely proud of every single member of our team!”

TWIA brings together the regional winners from all categories, which culminates in a National awards event each year. After beating a host of events teams across the North East and Yorkshire last January, Ellingham Hall was given a Highly Commended award in the 2023 national final.

Group General Manager David Fordham-Scott said it was a privilege to represent Northumberland and the North East for the third year in a row.

“We’re hoping to bring home the National accolade to illustrate what the North East is renowned for – its warm hospitality,” he said. “TWIA is such a powerful platform because it elevates us within the wedding industry, providing confidence and credibility. Most importantly, TWIA uses feedback from couples to make its decisions so knowing that this award is down to the comments from our valued couples makes it even more rewarding. Not only is it a great achievement for the team, but it also helps us celebrate what we are doing right, and ways we can improve our future offering.”


They head down to the Nationals again in January and hope to take home the title! To discover more about Ellingham Hall and Lemmington Hall, head to their Guest List profiles.
