Abbey Farm Weddings

As Woodhall Spa Wedding Venues go, Abbey Farm Weddings is an exclusive family-run barn wedding venue situated in the Lincolnshire countryside with the ruins of Kirkstead Abbey right next door.

As a recommended wedding photographer for Abbey Farm Weddings, I thought I would give a little insight into this fabulous barn wedding venue and one of the best wedding venues in Lincolnshire.


Ceremonies can be held on-site, either indoors or outdoors. Abbey Farm is home to St Leonard’s Church, a beautiful 13th Century church where your marriage or blessing ceremony can take place.

Ceremonies are also available on-site in the outdoor ceremony area in The Meadows or you can create the most romantic backdrop within either the traditional Oak Barn or the 450-year-old Granary Barn both of which are licensed for ceremonies.

At the heart of the venue, Oak Barn links the gardens and the courtyard. How you use the space is totally up to you – tie the knot amidst the romance of real firelight in front of the log burner or make use of the rustic backdrop of the traditional barn doors. Alternatively, seat up to 90 guests for the all-important wedding breakfast.

Evening receptions can include a band or DJ and they can either move away the tables creating a fantastic dance floor and evening party space or this can be seamlessly created in the adjacent barn while having your meal. This is a great way of avoiding the awkward lull of a changeover!


Completed in 2021, the Old Granary Barn is the most recently restored barn and is a stunning space that can be incorporated into your day.

For those having a larger guest list, the barn can seat up to 160 people. For the evening they can turn the room around or we can create a fantastic dance floor and evening party space in the adjacent Oak Barn while you are having your meal – avoiding the awkward lull of a changeover and seamlessly linking your wedding day to your evening celebrations


Abbey Farm has the honour of a unique 13th-century Church sited on the farm and within walking distance of the Oak Barn.

The beautiful Church of St Leonard’s, built in 1212 is listed in Simon Jenkin’s “Best 1000 Churches”.

The Church seats between 60 – 80 guests and can be reached across the Abbey field by car, on foot through beautiful grass meadows or through a woodland walk.


With a rustic backdrop, the bar area can be decorated as you wish but with the wonderful stone walls, open rafters, fairy lights & fully stocked bar it speaks for itself!

It is the perfect area for guests to arrive, have a drink before your ceremony and then continue the celebrations well into the night.


With South facing gardens and a patio area, this is the perfect place for sipping champagne and eating canapés and for a truly spectacular feast why not consider the unique outdoor dining for your wedding breakfast or an outdoor ceremony, as long as the weather hold up?

Rustic tables and benches together with patio furniture make up the garden seating and you can adjust this as you wish.

Croquet, Garden Jenga & Lovebirds Bean Bag game are available and you are welcome to bring any additional traditional garden games which may be a family favorite.

As the sun sets, not only will the Abbey Ruin be floodlit in honour of your wedding day, the fire pit will be glowing in the courtyard too. Adding the rustic tables and benches around the firepit make the courtyard a great evening reception area perhaps with sparklers, snuggled up under one of our rugs or toasting marshmallows.
