Raithby Hall is a Grade II listed building situated within the beautiful, rolling Lincolnshire Wolds. The red-brick home was the seat of the Brackenbury and Rawnsley families, built around 1760 for Robert Carr Brackenbury. Although built in 1760, some parts of the house date back to 1604. Boasting an extensive lake, an oriental garden, a bountiful woodland and beautiful natural walkways to explore, this home really is the perfect backdrop for your wedding.

With the ever changing laws and regulations around Covid, please let us assure you that we will work with you should you need, or be required, to postpone or rearrange your wedding. We currently have no fixed cancellation policies for weddings as we appreciate these are very unusual times and things are changing rapidly.
We have added hand sanitizer stations around the hall and masks are available for all guests should they need them. All our wonderful staff working in the Hall and the grounds remain vigilant and we are taking the severity of the current situation very seriously. The Hall is thoroughly cleaned after every event by a highly reputable cleaning company that we work with.The safety of our guests and our staff is of the utmost importance.
We ask you to help us keep our guests and our staff safe by requesting that any of your family and friends coming to your wedding do not attend should they be experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19. We have thermometers should you want the added security of doing temperature checks of all wedding guests on the day.
Covid has turned the wedding industry upside down but we will work with you to come up with wonderful ways to help you have the most spectacular day!
Raithby Hall offers an ideal location for your perfect wedding. Whether your wedding takes place in our stunning 17th century Chapel, one of the grand indoor spaces or outside with nature surrounding you, this home will allow your event to be as bespoke and unique as you want. The beautiful chapel attached to Raithby Hall can hold up to 30 guests.
Raithby has a very special intimate feel to it whilst being in a grand setting. It looks spectacular in winter, with candles and fairy lights twinkling, and the fires roaring. It looks equally breathtaking in the summer months when the Hall is bathed in summer sun and our guests can open the doors from our Club Room and Drawing Room and enjoy the south facing terrace. The grounds of Raithby make for a beautiful backdrop for an outdoor ceremony.
We welcome all people to Raithby, and want you to feel at home here. Raithby Hall is a family-owned-and-operated venue and we are fully committed to helping couples create the day of their dreams!
For smaller weddings we would suggest our Formal Dining Room for the ceremony, which can hold up to 45-50 seated guests, followed by drinks and canapes in our Club Room and Drawing Room. We would then propose your Wedding Breakfast be held in the Formal Dining Room, or our Tennyson Suite.
Our Tennyson Suite is perfect for larger weddings of up to 80 guests, although more can flow out into the courtyard should you require. The main house can accommodate up to 80 guests for a stand up reception.
Our extensive grounds offer the space for a marquee therefore we would suggest the use of this for weddings of 80+ guests.
For parties looking to stay overnight we recommend the Woodhall Hotel and Spa, close to Raithby Hall. We can also provide an extensive list of recommended small local hotels a short drive from the venue. Our staff work with you to ensure the special day you’ve been dreaming of is fully realised.
We make a small selection of our beautiful rooms available to the couple on the morning of your wedding, for weddings in the house or our marquee. We know the importance of having somewhere private to prepare for your big day! When planning your day with our Events Coordinator we will go through a selection of rooms for you to pick.
Our prices start from £2000 for a days hire of our event spaces and the grounds. We ask for a 25% deposit of the total cost when you make your booking with us, and the remaining balance is paid one month before the date of the wedding.
We are currently offering a refund on all deposits if you are effected by Covid in anyway. We understand the anxiety that comes with planning your wedding during these sad times so please be assured we will not withhold any money if you need to cancel or postpone your plans.
We offer a unique Streaming Service with our wedding packages. Let your loved ones join in on your special day from all over the world without risking their health and whilst keeping each other safe!

Included in the venue hire:
- exclusive use of the ground floor Hosting rooms and the grounds of Raithby Hall
- covers the public liability insurance of day guests attending the wedding.
- ground rental giving the option of a marquee/catering marquee being contracted in.
- covers all 3rd party contractors waivers so the wedding couple can have whichever caterers/suppliers etc they want offering them greater flexibility.

We currently do not offer in house catering at Raithby Hall and we invite our guests to bring in their own caterers and suppliers.
We work with a superb world-class personal chef who we highly recommend for our smaller wedding parties with table service in either of our dining spaces. The price is dependent on the number of guests and choice of food. He works with you to design the perfect wedding breakfast, or alternatively he can suggest several seasonal set menus. Our international chef has cooked for many celebrities and stars, such as Kylie Minogue and most recently Mumford and sons, accompanying them on their last worldwide tour.
We are also thrilled to partner with and recommend The Spitting Pig, the UK’s number one hog roast company. Their company is built up of professional, hardworking teams who all have a passion for delivering top quality food. With locally sourced traceable meat from the very best suppliers through to garden fresh salads lovingly prepared and presented you can be sure that you are in safe hands. They consistently receive 5* reviews from their clients and Raithby Hall is proud to work with them.
Alternatively you can arrange your own catering at Raithby Hall allowing you the flexibility and freedom to plan your day exactly as you want it. We understand that keeping to a budget can be a stressful part of planning a wedding so you have the freedom to bring in your own food choices and keep your costs down.
You may bring your own alcohol and we do not charge for corkage at Raithby. It is your own private party after all!
We love welcoming you to Raithby Hall for a tour of our beautiful house and grounds. Understandably this is not always possible at the moment, and we have a 3D tour available to help you get a sense of the house. Please do have a look on our website or get in touch with us and we can email this straight to you.
If you would prefer to have a video call with our Events Coordinator who can answer any questions you have we would be thrilled to arrange that. It is not the same as meeting all our wonderful guests in person but at the moment we appreciate this is the safest way to do it.
