Ellingham Hall’s Events Team Celebrates Triple Award Success!!

6th December 2023

Wedding Industry Awards 2024

We are absolutely delighted – and humbled – to have been crowned the ‘Best Wedding Events Team’ in the North East and Yorkshire for an unprecedented third year in a row.

Our team was presented with the winning accolade at The Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA) Regional final earlier this month, at a glittering ceremony at the Vermont Hotel in Newcastle.

Being announced as Regional Winner for the Best Wedding Events Team in the North East and Yorkshire really is amazing. Having an unforgettable wedding experience requires more than a stunning venue and it was great to hear TWIA founder, Damian Bailey acknowledge our dedication for turning couples’ dreams into reality, for a third consecutive year. 

It’s the cherry on top of the cake, as our business has had such a fantastic year. In the past 12 months, our new parent company ‘Unveiled Venues’ was launched to incorporate Ellingham Hall alongside two new sister venues.

As well as Ellingham Hall, the Unveiled Venues group has added luxury wedding venue Lemmington Hall in Alnwick and family gastro pub The Highlander Ponteland to its portfolio.

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

“The fact the team has scooped the Best Wedding 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 the Ellingham Events 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 from across the North East and Yorkshire last January, our team collected a Highly Commended award in the 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 uses feedback from couples to make its decisions. Knowing that this industry award is down to the experience and comments of our valued couples makes it even more rewarding, because it tells us we’re giving people the high standard of service that every couple deserves.”

TWIA’s National final takes place on 24 January at London’s Underglobe. Last year, we were Highly Commended and we’re hoping to top that in the 2024 Final!
