Best day of our lives
Where to start. Dodmoor is simply beautiful from our first viewing back in Feb 2022, we’ve been in awe. Louise is absolutely fantastic at what she does, put all my worries at ease, supported our visions and made us feel amazing. The candles, fairy lights, flexibility all made it clear for us that this was our dream wedding venue. The staff are so Incredibly on the ball, and the day went more perfect than I could have ever imagined. I am so thankful to the team at Dodmoor and their stunning venue.

Flawless!!!
From the moment we first saw the venue we fell in love. Everything about dodmoor is just perfect. The day was above and beyond what we could have imagined and that is down to the staff and of course of fabulous wedding coordinator, Kara. The whole wedding planning process was put to ease for us thanks to the team. The venue is just stunning and we can’t fault a thing. If we could do the day all over again we wouldn’t have changed a thing. Thanks for making all our dreams a reality and for being just fabulous. Love The Mullens x

The Perfect Wedding Venue
We couldn’t have picked a better venue than Dodmoor House! Firstly, it goes without saying that the venue looked completely beautiful on the day… despite the rain! But beyond this, the team at Dodmoor were perfect in the entire lead up to our day. They were consistently friendly, helpful and quick to respond from start to finish. They spent lots of time answering all our queries before we booked with them, and then the many, many queries that come throughout the planning process were answered with speed and always a fully thought out response - never a quick one-line email. Nothing was ever too much to ask from Dodmoor. Every tiny little detail was thought through, and every time I emailed to ask something that felt a bit silly and insignificant, Dodmoor’s response always made me feel the opposite - they took every query seriously and thought it through properly. The team at Dodmoor are really amazing at what they do, and you can be sure to know that you are in the safest of hands if you book with them! Our ‘Day in Detail’ meeting was great, too. Kara and Louise came to the meeting having thought through almost every minute of the day - it really was so thorough! They let us know of any potential logistical issues, and had solutions for them too. We left the meeting feeling that everything was taken care of and we didn’t have anything to worry about, which is such a great way to feel when you hear of other couples feeling very stressed out in the weeks before their wedding! We cannot write this review without also making a special mention to Kara, who was the co-ordinator for our day. Firstly, Kara is just such a lovely person - always positive and enthusiastic about all of our ideas and plans, and just so easy to talk to. Beyond this, though, she is incredible at her job! She made the day run SO smoothly, even though we had a very jam-packed itinerary. We didn’t have to think about ANYTHING on the day, Kara was on top of everything throughout. We felt so lucky to have such an amazing person running our day! I tend to worry, A LOT, but I can honestly say that I did not worry once when it came to Dodmoor. If you are considering booking with them, please do!

The Perfect Venue
When we first visited Dodmoor House at one of their open evenings we were wowed by this beautiful venue. More importantly it quickly became apparent that the whole team at Dodmoor are dedicated to making your day exactly how you want it to be whilst their experience means support and guidance is always on hand if needed. We chose several of their recommended suppliers and this was clearly a benefit as each slotted into their role seamlessly, many guests commenting on how smooth the transitions were throughout the day. For a venue that only does weddings, the highest praise we can offer is that you're made to feel like yours is the only one. If you want your day to be relaxed and stress-free, confident that you're in expert hands then you'll not regret choosing Dodmoor. Thank you to Louise and the team for giving us such an amazing and memorable day!

The most incredible venue!
Dodmoor House was the perfect venue for our wedding. From the beautiful venue itself, to the most wonderful staffing team ever, our wedding day went smoothly and perfectly. We knew from the moment we viewed it that it was THE venue! The communication throughout the planning process was really helpful, and when discussing ideas with our coordinator Beci, no idea was too silly. They tried to accommodate everything we wanted. They brought all of our ideas to life, and made it 10x more brilliant. They have a recommended supplier list which is super useful. And the no corkage charge was appreciated by our guests too!! I'm the evening, the courtyard is stunning, and just creates the most magical atmosphere. We can't be more grateful to Dodmoor House for our wedding!

Dodmoor has a special place in our hearts 💜
From start to finish our experience with Dodmoor House was perfect. We had heard from other couples who had been married there how amazing the staff were but we were still shocked by their attention to detail and commitment to making our day exactly what we wanted it to be. I wouldn’t change a thing and I wish I could relive it over and over again! All our guests commented to us how stunning the venue was and how lovely and attentive the staff were. Our wedding co-ordinator thought of everything and we had total faith on the day that they would ensure everything went smoothly which allowed us to relax and enjoy every moment. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dodmoor House. If you want the day of your dreams you couldn’t be in better hands!

Frequently Asked Questions

Describe the best wedding that happened at Dodmoor House?

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.
