Great result for Winder Hall & Chris Freer Photography Cumbria
Well what a year! We were really over the moon to hear that we had been shortlisted as the only Cumbrian & Lake District venue to reach the regional finals of The Wedding Industry Awards, and were double delighted to find out that Chris Freer (a photographer who has taken fantastic pictures of many weddings at Winder Hall) was the only Cumbrian professional photographer to make it through to this stage.
These independent awards are the brainchild of Damian and Anna Bailey. Damian is an award-winning wedding photographer. Damian’s wife, Anna, is also from a strong event management background. They’ve created a really wonderful event, and we’ve been so impressed by the organisation – it’s been fun too!
The judging panel was packed with experts in the field, from the editor of You and Your Wedding magazine to some of the country’s premier wedding movers and shakers. It also included the Director of leading entertainment company Sternberg Clarke who counts two of the Spice Girls’ weddings among his successes. We are delighted to have been a part of this prestigious process.
What an honour to be in the regional finals AND the only Cumbrian venue to make it this far. We have been humbled by the feedback we received via the Wedding Industry Awards & you can find all of this on our Weddings website. We’d love to share a few comments here on people’s experience & why they booked Winder Hall:
“Everything was just perfect. The grounds were lovely the house was great. The food was awesome. So much so I had a bit of everything. The hog roast in the evening was unbelievable all my friends still talk about it now. Nothing was too much trouble it was just the perfect day. Highly recommend.”
“Nick, Kate and the team at Winder have a very personable approach. From first to last contact our day felt like it was tailored to us. We had a very strong ‘buy local’ ethic to uphold and Nick is passionate about local produce. Our guests all felt at home at Winder and NOTHING was too much trouble.”
To see all the feedback please take a look at our page on the awards, and if you would like to have a chat with us please do call Heli or Toni on 01900 85107 or click here to receive more information on our weddings.
Thank you to everyone who voted for us, and we can’t wait to host more wonderful weddings in 2013! We’re getting pretty busy, with lots of romantic & intimate celebrations as well as a big marquee wedding in April. Not forgetting all the outside catering we do at other venues – busy year ahead! Now, to planning a fabulous Valentine’s break
