Here at Askham Hall things have been pretty exciting for us over the past few months or so.  We have been super busy now that summer is upon us and our wedding season is well and truly in full swing. However, we haven’t let this pretty wet summer put a damper on our spirits (pun intended!) You may have already heard that we won our very first wedding awards this summer!

First things first, we would like to say a massive thank you!

Thank you to all our previous brides and grooms who voted for us in the County Brides North West Wedding Awards and thank you to everyone else out there supporting us.  We had an absolute ball and couldn’t be more grateful that we won the ‘Best Venue, Cumbria’ award.

A week after the County Brides Awards,  we attended the Cumbria Tourism Awards and won another wedding award along with accommodation!

We are so delighted that not only did we win ‘Best Wedding Venue’ but also ‘Best Guest Accommodation’ with another two more nominations on top of that AND a special mention for our sister establishment The George and Dragon. It’s just so overwhelming and amazing all at the same time, we couldn’t be happier.

We would also like to mention all the other winners and nominees at both award ceremonies. The entire place was filled with the most awesome, inspiring and local businesses and venues that we’ve ever seen. So massive congratulations to everyone there!

 

Again we would like to say thank you, thank you, thank you!!! We really couldn’t have done it without you guys!
