Lincolnshire Wedding Venues on the map
Why Get Married in Lincolnshire?
Lincolnshire is the second-largest county in the UK. A county of contrasts, from the city to the countryside to the coast, Lincolnshire has a wedding venue to suit every taste.
Starting in Lincoln itself, voted one of the best small cities in the UK and home to the world-famous Lincoln Cathedral and the Magna Carta. The surrounding countryside immediately outside the city means that you can have a beautiful wedding in the heart of the countryside combined with all the benefits that come with having your wedding in a city.
Talking of the countryside, there are some beautiful country wedding venues where you and your guests can celebrate your day. From the expansive flatland views to the rolling hills of the wolds, there are so many venues where you can relax and get away from it all.
Finally, there’s the coast. Although Skegness is the most famous seaside destination in Lincolnshire, you don’t have to travel too far to find beautiful beaches that feel like your own sanctuary on the coast.

Lincolnshire Wedding Venues on a Budget
Village Halls. All Over Lincolnshire
If you are looking for Lincolnshire wedding venues on a budget, or you just want a reception venue that allows you to stamp your own style on it, you really should start a search of village halls.
I am sure when I say village hall, you are thinking of those monstrous venues built in the 70’s and 80’s and whilst there are many of them, there are some beautiful village hall venues in Lincolnshire that really are some of the nicest venues out there and incredibly reasonable.
I have photographed in a beautiful school from the turn of the century that is now a village hall, as well as ones with amazing natural light and outdoor space. Finding the perfect village hall for your wedding is a labour of love, but when you find that hidden gem venue, it is totally worth it.
