More than a dream come true!
The venue is just stunning, everything we dreamed of, there isn’t one thing I'd change. As soon as you drive in you get the sense of complete love! It just has that “happy ever after” vibe. We cannot thank our wedding coordinator enough, everyone who attended our wedding has mentioned them by name to us, expressing their love for them! The team made our wedding easy, stressless and fun! It was more than a dream come true! We love Dodmoor House and the lovely people who work there! x

Simply the best
The.best.venue.ever. The staff were absolutely amazing throughout every stage and pulled everything together on the day. Everything was done and move around on the day without anyone seeing it being done. Nothing was too much trouble. Our christmas wedding was perfect and couldn't have gone any better.

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 a 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?
