A prestigious north Northumberland wedding venue has been recognised at the Wedding Industry Awards.
Newton Hall, at High Newton-by-the-sea, picked up one of 24 gongs at a ceremony at Middleton Lodge, near Richmond in north Yorkshire.
And now, the venue, which won an award for the unique weddings it holds at the venue, and the other talented winners from each category, will now go forward to represent the North East in the National Finals to be held in London on January 15.
A spokesman for Newton Hall said: “We are thrilled that Newton Hall has been recognised for our unique weddings and fantastic outdoor ceremonies.
“We would like to thank all our brides and grooms who voted for us as the best countryside venue in the North East
“ We can’t wait for the National Finals in January.’
Founder of The Wedding Industry Awards, Damian Bailey, said: “It’s becoming harder and harder for our judges to pick winners from such amazing shortlists where everyone demonstrates such skill.
“It was great to celebrate everyone’s achievements.”
