The hall, which was crowned Northumberland’s Most Outstanding Luxury Wedding Venue only two months ago, is now in the final of the 2019 National Wedding Awards.

It is the only North East venue named in its category.

Weddings and marketing manager Rachel Barlow said: “It is fantastic and really puts Northumberland on the map.”

Now Ellingham Hall needs the public’s help to vote it to victory, via the National Wedding Awards website.

“To be shortlisted is fantastic but now it’s down to a public vote,” said Rachel.

“As we’re the North East’s only venue, we really hope that the public across the region will get behind us so we can show the rest of the UK what a fantastic region we live in.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for Northumberland and the North East as a whole to stand out as a region of stunning countryside.”

Last month, Ellingham Hall was told it had picked up the crown as the county’s Most Outstanding Luxury Wedding Venue in the Global Luxury Hotel & Spa Awards.

It follows on from last year’s victory where wedding co-ordinator Wendy Sproul was named 2019 Wedding Co-Ordinator of the Year in the Wedding Industry Awards.

The vote will remain open until early June, with the winners due to be announced at a glittering awards ceremony in Leicestershire on June 26.

Ellingham Hall is an exclusive-use venue.

The privately-owned estate includes a country house, seven cottages and tree houses set in eight acres of countryside.
