Looking for a quirky wedding venue?

I stumbled across this amazing Lincolnshire wedding venue quite by accident whilst reading through the ‘Village Link’ one afternoon.  Looking at the photographs and reading the comments “A visual feast! Beautiful, eclectic and slightly mad but great fun”  I was of course intrigued to see more.

The Priory House in Long Bennington is a Grade II listed Georgian country house set within one and a half acres of romantic gardens with mature trees.  Upon arrival, Roger and Carole, both artists, gave me a very warm welcome to their amazing home and from the outset I felt very at home.

Carole, a successful fashion designer in the 70’s and 80’s and Roger, a  sculptor, have both transformed this Georgian mansion into  luxurious and extravagant stage sets, a photographers dream!  If you’re looking for a location to film or indeed would like to use Priory House for a photo shoot, then please get in touch.

The entire house is lavishly furnished with gold soft furnishings, quirky furniture, gilded mirrors and the rooms are illuminated by beautiful crystal chandeliers.

There are three rooms for you to choose your ceremony; ‘The Princess Royal Room’, decorated in pale pink, cream and gold furnishings.  Your vows will be made standing before the giant Salvador Dali joined hands table.  Next is the ‘Garden room’, which is less flamboyant than the first room, furnished in ivory silk drapes, waiting for you to add your special additions or step back in time  and enter  ‘The Oriental Brewhouse’.  Just think of Queen Elizabeth’s the first’s hunting lodge, a beautiful self catering cottage.

The wedding reception can then be held in either the ‘Garden Room’ which seats 40 guests or alternatively there are folding doors which open on to the ‘Italian Terrace’ which is surrounded by terracotta pots, flowers and surrounded by the fantastic garden.  This is an area which you can add your own decorations and style.

This eclectic and wonderful house provide you and your wedding guests with a truly emotional and unforgettable experience and  it is doubtless that your photo album will be extraordinary and the envy of other brides!

As well as hosting weddings, Priory House can accommodate business conferences, Christmas parties, christenings and any other family parties you may have.

If you would like a to book a ‘show round’ please contact thealternativepa@outlook.com.  We’ll be happy to show you this very special and unusual wedding venue.  We provide a full wedding planning service.
