Well done
I have been to many weddings but none better than the one we went to at Dodmoor house. The place is beautiful and all the staff were friendly and professional. Everyone enjoyed the day from start to finish. The food was plentiful and excellent. Any awards that Dodmoor house get are well deserved, well done to everyone and thank you for giving us all a perfect day and lots of memories to treasure.

Such a unique venue
Dodmoor house and their staff should be super proud of everything they have achieved in creating such a unique venue. Everything has been thought of, right down to the tiniest of items in the bridal/honeymoon suite that you wouldn’t necessarily think of when planning the wedding. Every single one of our guests (old enough to have an opinion) have spoken about how amazing the venue was and how accommodating the staff were. Being such an intimate wedding, our guests were our main priority and therefore, we thank you so much for ensuring they too had a fantastic day.

We were truly blown away...
What can I say?!! We had simply the best day of our lives! As you know I was quite relaxed about the planning of our wedding, what mattered most for us was that we got married & our family & friends could share it with us & enjoy themselves. We were truly blown away by your venue, all the staff & your kindness & organisation to enable the day to run so smoothly. We had so much fun & so did our family & friends, we are both still beaming now! My only regret is that it’s over! Thank you & your team so, so much. We will definitely recommend Dodmoor House in the future. Thank you to you, Mark, Louise & all the team for giving us simply the best! Anna & Warren

Absolutely Beautiful
We had the most beautiful wedding day at Dodmoor House and I wish we could do it all again! From the moment we booked to the minute we left the day after the wedding everyone was so friendly and welcoming. We were looking for a barn venue for around 50 day guests and Dodmoor was one of the only venues in Northamptonshire that met this criteria whilst being in a reasonable budget. But once we came and viewed Dodmoor we fell in love with how beautiful it is and how many gorgeous places there were for photo opportunities. The venue was absolutely beautiful and I’m so excited to see our final photos as we couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous setting. Everyone at Dodmoor was incredibly welcoming and accommodating through the viewing and booking process. Particularly as we had to re-book our wedding date twice, the team really supported us in moving our wedding and making it all as seamless as possible. The day in detail meeting was really well organised and left us feeling confident that the whole day would be well planned. The staff were incredible, whenever we needed something there were staff at hand. No one went without a drink or canape.

Amazing
Our main reason for booking Dodmoor House was that we wanted an exclusive venue which wasn’t too big so the whole day would feel really personal. The viewing process was really relaxed and we didn’t feel pushed into making a decision straight away unlike some other venues we viewed. Dodmoor were also so helpful when it came to rearranging due to covid - we really appreciated that. The morning before our wedding when we dropped all our stuff off, our wedding coordinator did an amazing job of reassuring us and making us feel at ease with how the day was going to go. As a young couple who haven’t experienced many weddings between us, this was a lovely touch as we were guided every step of the way and accommodated every step of the way. Levels of service were excellent, the staff couldn't do enough for us. Overall the experience was amazing. The venue is beautiful and so well presented, it was perfect.

Outstanding! I can't even put into words how amazing our day was
From the moment we arrived at Dodmoor the staff were friendly and welcoming, we were shown around the venue at our own pace and had the opportunity to ask questions about the day which were answered and put our minds at ease. We loved the cosy feel of Dodmoor and loved that we would have the place to ourselves for our day. We never had any doubt that the day wouldn’t run smoothly as the staff were so organised and knowledgeable from the first time we met them. Our wedding coordinator was amazing, she was totally calm throughout which put me and my bridal party at ease. It started raining just before the ceremony but she already had a contingency plan and didn’t pressure me to make lots of decisions about the cocktail hour, she went with the flow and it turned out perfectly. Everything was organised to perfection and as a control freak that put me at ease. Nothing was ever too much trouble and our family and friends could not believe how amazing Dodmoor House was, they have recommended it to all of their family as the wedding venue to go to.

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

It's absolutely impossible to say! We've had so many weddings and each one has their own best parts! We do remember having an actual ball when a mariachi band came in and played to everyone during dinner, and we threw sombreros to guests from the mezzanine balcony! A petting zoo with the cutest animals ever came and we cuddled rabbits, lambs and baby goats. An English Bride who grew up locally married an American groom, who's family and friends flew across the pond for the big day and were all transported to Dodmoor on a double decker London bus! Every week we experience another "Best Day Ever"!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

If someone is willing to help you, take their help! It's so amazing to have people who want to contribute towards your day whether that's helping to make favours, driving your Nan to the venue or doing a reading in the ceremony. Anything that helps take a little stress away from planning really has a huge effect!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

One of our favourite parts of seeing lots of weddings is seeing the personal touches our couples do to put their stamp on Dodmoor House! We love personal photos, it's always lovely to see pictures of our couples throughout the years they have been together.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Romantic, Exclusive, Friendly, Warm and Happy!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Being next door to the Grand Union Canal is a treat, we are right next to a lovely bridge which provides such beautiful photos.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Being so close to Northampton, we've had a Saints Rugby player get married here and also a few guests from the Made in Chelsea cast! (A roady for Coldplay and One Direction also got hitched at Dodmoor, but sadly Chris Martin and Harry Styles didn't make the guest list...)

What’s your favourite canapé?

We are partial to a mini Yorkshire pudding!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Cake - and not just at midnight! We are known for having a constant sweet treat supply in the office!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

We might be biased, but there are so many beautiful features at Dodmoor. The most unique however might be the "secret garden" gate, which is located by the walled garden area of our main lawn. Absolutely gorgeous for romantic couple portraits.

What part of your business are you most proud of?
