Home to England’s most breathtaking countrysides, with a sprawling landscape and untouched natural beauty, Lincolnshire wedding venues present a unique allure. A rich history has left medieval halls and ornate gardens scattered across the county, although many are desirable venues in themselves, the choice begs much consideration.
A wedding venue sets the tone for the entire ceremony. From the classic grandeur of Stoke Rochford Hall to the graceful modesty of Aswarby Rectory, every wedding venue comes with its own charm. Choosing the right one takes a little time and research but is a rewarding journey of its own.
Consider the atmosphere and energy you want to convey, as well as the expectations you’ve had since your proposal. Your venue should complement the theme of your wedding, regardless of its scope.
Some couples prefer a laid-back ceremony that may lead them to a smaller and more intimate venue, while others want to mark the celebration with their unique splendour. The right venue will achieve the air you desire.
Another major consideration is the details and logistics behind the ceremony. The location, size, and expenses, all play a major roll in planning your wedding. To help you along the way, here’s a list of some of the best wedding venues in Lincolnshire.
Doddington Hall is an Elizabethan manor which offers an elegant environment with a history dating back to the 1500s and the use of several beautiful areas on the property. The Long Gallery is located in the main building and available for larger ceremonies up to 200, a beautifully lit space with a classically kept interior. The Coach House, used for smaller ceremonies up to 70 or receptions up to 150, has a refurbished modern design.
The Doddington Hall wedding team is dedicated to providing a personalized experience to all parties. Catering and other custom services are offered by the staff, as well as onsite accommodation in the hall for both you and your guests. The ground gardens and surrounding areas also present great photography opportunities. Only a single wedding is booked on a given day, so there’s no chance of scheduling conflicts either.
