The 2022 Wedding Industry Awards!

Caroline, Founder of Ellison Gray Bridal Boutique in Durha, accepting her award for Highly Commended at The 2022 Wedding Industry Awards at Vermont Hotel Newcastle

I’m so so proud of how far Ellison Gray has some over the past year. Despite pandemics and lockdowns and couple’s faith in weddings and events being at an all time low, we’ve managed to build a business with the help of some absolutely amazing Brides and i’m incredibly thankful for every single one of them.

It’s because of them, that I can now announce, we won the award of Highly Commended at the regional finals of The 2022 Wedding Industry Awards!


We are blessed in this region as it is rich with top notch wedding suppliers and stunning venues, and it was my absolute honour to be alongside them at this ‘best of the best’ event at Newcastle city centre’s luxurious Vermont Hotel.

It was an exciting night, full of glamour and fizz, where Ellison Gray Bridal was up for 2 awards; Best Bridal Boutique and Best Newcomer. I was so pleased just to have gotten to this stage in the competition! Although we didn’t win the big award, we did win an award for Highly Commended because of all the amazing feedback from our Brides.
