Published on 2023-10-31

Our dog-friendly wedding venues in Lincolnshire ensure that all the most important people in your life can take part in your special celebrations, and that includes your paddy-pawed friends too. Bringing all the family together in unity and celebration and adding even more cuteness, warmth and, sometimes, hilarity, to the day, the benefits of a four-pawed wedding are numerous. Afterall, love is a four-legged word.

If you are considering dog-friendly wedding and want to bestow your loyal canine companion with a special role in your wedding day celebrations, it’s important to find the right dog-friendly wedding venue for your happily fur-ever after. Proposing unforgettable memories for all the pack, here are just some of the reasons to say “I do” to a four-pawed wedding at our 4-star Georgian Manor House hotel in Lincoln.

Wedding Roles

When considering dog-friendly wedding venues, it’s great to consider what funny, novel or just plain adorable role you’d like your dog to play. Making wedding ceremonies and celebrations even more special, giving your waggy-tailed pal their own unique part in proceedings can provide wonderful memories and a great talking point for the day. If your dog is happy around lots of people, then roles such as ring bearer, dog of honour, best dog (naturally), and flower dog are all brilliant. That said, the simple presence of your dog alone, watched over by a trusty pawrent for the day, can provide endearment enough. For an extra novel twist, you can even include your dog in the line-up of speeches; however, we can’t guarantee the review won’t be a little ruff.

Treasured Photos

Helping you to frame moments that will become cherished, lifelong memories, wedding photos are a significant part of many couple’s wedding day celebrations. Whether you’re going for classic or unconventional, colour or black and white, staged or candid, there is a style to suit every bride and groom.. and dog. What better reason, then, to look for dog-friendly wedding venues than to find somewhere with a beautiful setting for your pictures? Setting the scene for magical wedding photos with you and your beloveds, dog-friendly wedding venues allow you to capture moments with all the people and pups that matter to you most. Thankfully, at Washingborough Hall, we have a four-star venue and picturesque, manicured gardens to create the most idyllic backdrop to your day.


Pawsonal Touch

Wedding days should be all about the couple, and dog-friendly wedding venues allow newly-weds-to-be to plan wedding celebrations that truly reflect their own personalities and values. Affording couples with the freedom to live out their dream wedding day celebrations, the benefits of four-pawed weddings include a genuine personal touch that would be hard to achieve without all the family present. Tail-or your day to what’s right for you and your betrothed and ensure you are surrounded by all your favourite beings, including your pooch. Other dog lovers will adore the added presence of your dog, and you will be able to enjoy your special day to the fullest.

Stress Relief

It’s not uncommon for brides and grooms to feel a bit stressed in the run up to the big day. In fact, even on the day itself, the build-up of anticipation and excitement can leave even the coolest cucumber a little nervous. Fortunately, one of the many benefits of dog-friendly wedding venues is that you can enjoy the presence of your waggy-tailed friend by your side to ease your mind and boost your confidence. Scientifically proven to lower cortisol and blood pressure and boost feel-good chemicals in the body, interacting with animals (especially your own dogs) can be a wonderful stress relief on your wedding day. Include your dog in your big day and enjoy their reassurance throughout to settle any nerves and add to the unconditional love surrounding you and your partner in life.

Family Unity

Dog-friendly wedding venues ensure that all the family can stick together. Afterall, no one puts Buddy in the corner! As deeply treasured members of the family, we often spend more time with our dogs than we do our own extended network of friends and family – meaning that they have a hugely important part to play in our lives. Sharing mundane moments and memorable milestones alike, their constant and unfailing presence is something to hold dear. So, why shouldn’t you be able to include them in your wedding too? If you are considering dog-friendly wedding venues, embrace the opportunity to share your special day with your best furry friend and add even more sentiment to your ceremony. You will save on the cost and worry of kennels, and you can create another beautiful chapter in the story of your lives together.

The Cuteness

Let’s face it, dogs are cute. Really cute. No matter the age, shape, size or breed of your doe-eyed pup, the endearing qualities of dogs are endless. With an uncanny ability to win people over with just a twitch of the nose and wag of the tail, our adorable canines bring joy and mirth wherever they go. Let’s be honest, have you ever been anywhere that wouldn’t have been better with dogs? We didn’t think so. Seize the benefits of dog-friendly wedding venues and plan your day to include a generous dose of cuteness with the addition of your dog. We’re sure you won’t regret it.
