I’m a professional UK & Lincoln wedding photographer based not too far away from Doddington Hall & Gardens and have been lucky enough to have been photographing weddings now for over 15 years.
One of the benefits of travelling around the UK and particularly around my home county of Lincolnshire is that I get to visit and photograph at some pretty amazing wedding venues (and I’ve been to ALOT). I have loved photographing at each and everyone of my couples venues but every now and again a venue will stand out from the crowd.
Doddington Hall is one such venue, so much so that I thought I would put together this comprehensive Doddington Hall Wedding guide in the hope that if you are considering it for your wedding day it will help you with your decision. Spoiler alert….you won’t be disappointed!
Design by renowned Elizabethan architect Robert Smythson, Doddington Hall was completed in 1600 and remains until this day a loving family home.
The hall, despite it’s age, has hardly changed in terms of it’s abundance of character and charm and with it’s bright and airy Georgian style renovation it is now the perfect location if you are looking for a Doddington Hall wedding that is romantic, classy and chic.
The hall is surrounding by an array of characterful outbuildings and coach house which have now been converted into accommodation and additional wedding reception it is perfect for your wedding guests (more on that later) along with some truly stunning wild and formal gardens.
Set within the five acres of the Doddington Estate the venue is surrounded by woodland and open area walks including their own Farm shop, cafe, restaurant. Everything you could need for or short or extended stay for you and your guests when getting married there.
All in all this really is the perfect venue to hold your wedding where you can be assured of some truly stunning wedding photographs.
WEDDING CEREMONY OPTIONS
It’s possible to get married at several locations within the estate as it has a number of licensed sites including: The Long Gallery, The Coach House and recently included Coach House Walled Garden. All are stunning and all will provide you with a fantastic wedding experience.

Doddington Hall Wedding Ceremony
There are a number of options for your ceremony here but one of the best options, weather permitting, is utilising the newly installed pergola. It really does make for a fantastic experience for guest with lovely golden sunshine peaking over the garden walls.

Doddington Hall Wedding Photography Opportunities
This really is where having a Doddington Hall wedding will set your wedding day apart. The buildings and grounds really are outstanding, providing so many great opportunities for stunning wedding images. Photographing a wedding here for me is like being a child in a sweet shop and really appeals to my affection for classic, natural, romantic and chic wedding imagery.
Doddington Hall Wedding Breakfast
The staff at Doddington Hall really do above and beyond to ensure your day goes without a hitch. Both Justine and Andrew who manage the events and weddings have years of experience behind them and are both passionate about ensuring your day goes without a hitch.
The chef here also produces outstanding quality food much of which is sourced locally.
As the sun draws down on the horizon the sunsets at the back of the estate are to die for. A great way to finish off the evening is with some EPIC wedding images.
