Thank you!
The day was absolutely perfect. Our wedding coordinator was brilliant and gave lots of great advice. The venue is beautiful and is perfect for an informal and rustic theme. The team allow you to be as informal as you like, and they let you run the day how you would want and advise where possible. They keep in contact and ensure everything is up to date and running as smoothly as possible. The honeymoon suite is stunning and the bathtub, you could stay in for hours. We can’t say THANK YOU enough! We would 100% recommend to family and friends.

Not a single fault!
We were running late for pretty much every meeting we had with Dodmoor due to being new parents however Louise and everyone we encountered were amazing and so understanding, always putting us at ease and making sure they answered all of our questions. We loved the feel of the venue. It was intimate but felt spacious at the same time. The outdoor space is very special and the staff just came across so friendly and organised. There wasn't an empty glass for the whole day. The staff worked so hard all day and night and even went digging for a lost bridesmaid bouquet after they had tidied up! From start to finish, we didn't come across a single fault. We didn't have to worry about anything, they set up for us, made sure everything was exactly as we wanted it, and then cleared up afterwards. Also during the planning I would have been in such a panic if it wasn't for the team on the other end of emails. The website has some incredibly helpful sections too with pretty much all the info you need about planning a wedding! We would definitely recommend Dodmoor to anyone. Our whole experience was nothing short of perfection. It was honestly perfect and we want to do it all over again.

Exactly what we wanted!
We really liked the indoor and outdoor spaces and the flow with the courtyard at the centre. We were also confident it would still be good in bad weather! We saw ‘grander’ wedding venues, but we thought Dodmoor was cute and fun, and would create the kind of wedding we wanted. We were constantly impressed by the staff, both in quick and clear responses to all of our emails, and once we were assigned Vicky as our wedding coordinator who was superb at sorting every little detail and being a calm, reassuring presence on the day. On the day everything ran smoothly and Vicky kept us updated. Staff serving drinks were also pleasant and friendly, and the evening manager was very helpful and friendly. It was exactly what we wanted and we can’t recommend you highly enough.

Loved it beyond measure!
We loved the feel of Dodmoor, but particularly for me, I wanted a professional, slick day that I fully trusted the venue in delivering which you absolutely did. We absolutely CANNOT sing Dodmoor’s praises enough and it does not feel like a wedding machine at all. We were made to feel so incredibly special from the very second we visited Dodmoor and it truly feels like such a special team who run it. From Dodmoor giving us as much time as we needed for our parents to come and visit initially, to the personalised emails to us that showed they knew us and cared about us really showed what a tailored approach to each and every couple they give. Our wedding coordinator Nadine could not have made our day any better, and she holds a very, very special place in our hearts for ensuring our day ran so beautifully. She exudes passion for her job and we very much hope it is known how much we appreciated her love and attention to us on our day, but also in the build-up too. Every single member of the Dodmoor team is an asset, from Nadine, the bar staff to the clearing away team – always with a smile on their faces, always so professional and ALWAYS willing to go the extra mile. We cannot thank Dodmoor enough for such a beautiful day and it was absolutely down to the slick attention to detail that meant our day could be the success that it was.

Amazing
Dodmoor were very accommodating to us and our manic work schedules! They made time for all of our family and suppliers. It's a beautiful venue with supportive staff. The organisation and help we received made planning a wedding in three months possible! Then the help we received on the day was amazing, everyone was so helpful and professional. Carolyn was always on top of everything and all the staff were so kind. So many of our guests were in awe.

Spectacular
Every single member of the team has been a dream throughout the process. On our first visit, we saw all of the windows being cleaned/candles being changed, and we realised how attentive you were to detail. Sophie was spectacular and it was like she had a radar that buzzed every time I needed something. She did such a great job and we are so lucky to have had her as our wedding coordinator. You guys just made it so easy for us. It was such a perfect day and we cannot thank you enough!

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?
