Couples invited to say ‘I do’ at Lincoln’s Usher Gallery

Couples considering Lincoln’s 95-year-old Usher Gallery for their big day are invited to a wedding open day on Thursday 14 April.

Drop in any time between 11am and 3pm to explore venue and grounds, talk to staff and gather ideas for your ceremony. Alternatively, reserve a time slot with a member of the dedicated ceremonies team by contacting ceremonies@lincolnshire.gov.uk.

The large gallery space on the ground floor transforms into a venue for couples to tie the knot, with room for up to 80 guests. The use of the grand front entrance for both the couple and their guests offers an unforgettable experience.

Cllr Lindsey Cawrey, executive member for heritage and culture on Lincolnshire County Council, said: “Couples tying the knot in this historic building are a wonderful part of the gallery’s role within our community. Set within Temple Gardens in the shadow of Lincoln Cathedral, the Usher is a beautiful and unique space for wedding ceremonies.”

Cllr Sue Woolley, executive member for registration, added: “The grandeur of the Usher Gallery offers couples a beautiful backdrop for their ceremony, at an affordable rate. If you and your other half are starting to plan your wedding or civil partnership, come along to our open day and see the space all dressed up for yourself, or come along any day the gallery is open to take a look around this impressive venue.”

Local businessman and philanthropist, James Ward Usher, left considerable funds to build the gallery after his death in 1921. The paintings, clocks, watches and porcelain he had collected over his life formed the basis of the gallery’s collection. It was officially opened in May 1927 by the then Prince of Wales, Edward VIII.
