A STATELY home is celebrating after being crowned the winners of a prestigious wedding competition despite the impact of coronavirus.

Gosfield Hall in Gosfield say they're proud after scooping an award at the British Wedding Awards 2020 and being crowned winners of the ‘Best Stately Home Wedding Venue’.

The hall was voted for by couples, guest and suppliers who visit and work with the venue.

The award is the latest the hall has won since opening as a wedding venue in 2004.

The British Wedding Awards 2020 were due to take place in London back in February, but the pandemic halted the event.

However, the event instead took place on October 12 virtually.

Gosfield Hall say the 2020 year has been tough with Covid forcing the venue to push back many of its bookings until 2021.

A spokesman for the venue said: "Here at Gosfield Hall we are proud, yet again to have won another prestigious award at the British Wedding Awards 2020 and crowned winners of the ‘Best Stately Home Wedding Venue’ as voted for by our couples, guests and suppliers.

"Our numerous awards that we have won since we opened as a Wedding Venue in 2004 are testament to all the hard work that our team puts into every wedding that we host.

"This has been a very difficult year, like many in the Wedding Industry and this has meant that our weddings scheduled to take place in 2020 have been transferred to 2021.

"Our owners, Country House Weddings ,have a Covid-19 promise offered to all of its couples across all of our six venues, ‘Should government legislation surrounding Covid-19 prevent your wedding from going ahead, we will transfer your wedding to an equivalent package in the future with no additional fee'."
