Doddington Hall is one of the most beautiful Elizabethan houses in the country and is renowned for being one of the most perfect wedding venues in Lincolnshire. Your wedding will be one of the most important days of your life and I take great pride in capturing all the memories for all my couples.

Doddington Hall was built in 1595 and it has never been sold. It is still privately owned and lived in, and it is a truly splendid venue with a uniquely exclusive and romantic atmosphere. Doddington’s mellow brick exterior with its walled courtyards has barely changed. However, in 1749, the Hall was inherited by John Delaval of Seaton Delaval in Northumberland and he carried out an extensive internal re-decoration, incorporating the light & elegant Georgian style that is still seen today.

If you choose Doddington as your Lincolnshire wedding venue, you can be assured of the personal attention from the wedding team. They can build you a wonderful weekend package (or two day if you are having a weekday wedding) to include stylish, homely and comfortable accommodation along with extra catering the night before and the morning after your wedding.

A Doddington Hall wedding is not just about the day itself, it offers you the chance to spend time with your family and friends over several days in a beautiful setting.


The Coach House just steps away from Doddington Hall and was created in 2011 after extension and refurbishment. It is light, airy, fresh and modern but with a stunning Elizabethan exterior, the Coach House is a wonderfully private and comfortable location with a beautiful secluded garden. It is ideal for weddings, with exclusive use of the whole venue.


The Long Gallery, situated in the Hall itself, can seat up to 200.

The Garden Room, situated in the Coach House, can seat up to 70.

The Coach House walled garden can seat up to 70.

Wedding receptions are held in the Coach House with the Long Gallery being used for civil ceremonies above 70 guests.


Doddington Hall uses seasonal produce from their own estate and suppliers from Lincolnshire and surrounding counties. They have their own herd of Lincoln Red Cattle for all their beef dishes, plentiful game, their own honey and foraged wild garlic along with fantastic year-round produce from their walled Kitchen Garden.

They can also offer you a ‘tasting’ where the bride and groom can enjoy a number of dishes from the menu. Their Head Chef is also happy to build a bespoke menu if there is something you would specifically like to serve to your guests.


Couple and guests can have the option to book Doddington Hall Lincolnshire accommodation for the weekend of your wedding. There is a total of 3 cottages and 7 individual bedrooms accommodating up to 44 people. The cottage accommodation hire is based on a minimum of a 2-night stay. The individual rooms are based on a 1 or 2-night stay but staying for 2 nights results in a sizeable saving. A full set of linens and towels etc is provided in each location.



Whilst on your search for your wedding venue why not book yourself and your partner in for a fabulous afternoon tea at Doddington Hall whilst you look around. Delight in a delicious selection of sandwiches, freshly baked scones with clotted cream & jam and a selection of famous Doddington cakes and dainty sweet treats. There’s something to suit the whole family with the addition of our new Savoury Afternoon Tea, perfect for those with a less sweet tooth. Choices include Hambleton’s pork pie, Wild Boar pate and sourdough crisp, Scotch egg, Doddington game sausage roll, Lincolnshire Poacher cheese and micro salad, piccalilli and red onion chutney – with sweets to follow. There are delicious options on the Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten / Dairy Free Afternoon Tea choices too. For younger customers, the Children’s Afternoon Tea will tempt with a choice of sandwiches, cookies and cupcakes, crudités and crisps.


I’m a professional wedding photographer based in North Hykeham, just a few miles from Doddington Hall, and I’d love to photograph your wedding at this stunning and unique venue. I’m an experienced photographer and have photographed weddings throughout the UK over the last 5 years.

I photograph weddings in my own unposed style and without any interaction from me whatsoever throughout your day which allows you to enjoy your day the way they you want with your family and friends.

I have a selection of packages that are perfect for either smaller more intimate weddings or right up to grand venues in Lincoln like Doddington Hall.

I’m originally from Liverpool but have been based in Lincoln for the last 11 years where I live with my partner, my 2 young daughters and my 6-month-old Husky called ‘Ozzy’!

I started up my wedding photography business a few years prior to leaving the Royal Marines in 2020 and I’ve toured the area looking for some gorgeous wedding venues that Id love to add to my portfolio with Doddington Hall being one of them. 

I’m currently offering special rates for bookings at specific venues so why not get in contact to see what’s on offer. All of my wedding photography packages feature high-resolution images available via digital download, in addition to a private online gallery that can be shared with friends and family, a wedding highlights slideshow set to music and a 50% discount on prints.

From chic city weddings to country estates, Lincoln has some truly unique locations to get married at and Doddington Hall looks like a great location for a wedding, and I’d love to shoot there!
