Step 2 – Choose Your Ceremony Venue

Your ceremony can be as simple or sophisticated as you wish. We have options available to suit every couple and budget.

Our civil ceremonies, except for the ‘statutory ceremony’, offer a full range of customisation. View information on fees for ceremonies.

Options include a choice of legal and personal vows, an exchange of rings and additional ceremony content such as readings and personalised music.

There are many approved venues across Lincolnshire licensed to hold civil ceremonies. These include hotels, converted barns and stately homes, and provide charming and memorable settings for your ceremony.

Statutory ceremony

A Statutory Ceremony is a Wedding or Civil Partnership held at one of our registration offices. This ceremony is limited to you, your partner and two witnesses.

There is limited weekday availability and no availability at weekends. This ceremony cannot be personalised.

If you choose an approved venue, you will need to contact them and provisionally book your preferred date, but only commit to this when you have secured Registrars.
