Our amazing 'Covid' Wedding Day
We got married here on Saturday. Numbers reduced to 28 from an 84 guest list, we decided to go for it still. We were nervous but we were not disappointed. In fact the opposite. What a wonderful intimate wedding we had. All the style and charm of Dodmoor with our nearest and dearest. I don’t know what we were expecting but it wasn’t this. We had the best day and everybody said how much better an intimate was. We got to spend real time with each other and our chosen guests. With more budget we could have the wedding we wanted, not needing to find funds for more guests or reduce the days events. We had a beautiful eight course meal prepared by Portfolio Events and were able to eat in the stunning Courtyard Barn, only able to accommodate smaller numbers. The dining layout was a cleverly social distanced banquet table which felt like one group and we spread our speeches out through the meal for diversity and a more less-structured feel. Our ceremony was beautiful. We entered from the mezzanine of the Catesby Barn and the photographs are unbelievable gorgeous, with the lit up LOVE sign above us. It was truly heavenly as our flower girl and page boy threw rose petals from above. It was perfect in ever way. The first couple to do this but I don’t think the last! The Dodmoor team were incredible. You pay for experience and the confidence that they will deliver. We could not recommend them enough. They did all the Covid necessity without it even feeling like it was there. The preparation done is so detailed and they manage the day perfectly. Small weddings are a thing of the future. Realistically, we have no idea when larger weddings will be allowed again. If you are looking, do not put off marrying the love of your life waiting for your big wedding. Remember what it is all about, it’s ultimately about you and your love for each other. Right now, there are high class venues available for fair prices, and Dodmoor is high class! Contact Louise and the team and see. You won’t be disappointed. Thank you to all at Dodmoor House for giving us something so special... Our amazing ‘Covid’ wedding day. We honestly wouldn’t change a thing about it x

Simply Amazing
We recently had our special wedding day at Dodmoor House (September 24 2020) - the venue and team were simply amazing. We decided to get married just over 4 weeks before our wedding date - and Mark & Louise from Dodmoor did not hesitate to support us from the get-go. We fell in love with the venue from the viewing and reserved it immediately. Louise helped explain everything needed to organise a wedding during COVID, with all the restrictions while still making sure it was a special day for us. We even had challenges getting in contact with registrars and Dodmoor helped escalate to make sure that we could serve our 28 day notice period. Without them, this would not have been possible. Once we booked the venue, Louise spared time on the phone to start the wedding planning. She gave a list of things to think about and guide us through the process over the coming weeks. Closer to the time, she met with us and both the parents to write down a schedule for the day that would suit us. She fully understood how to run the day and make it special and tailored for us. She also dealt with all the suppliers with no hesitation. We also had some ideas on how to tailor the venue to our needs, she was patient with us - and made us feel like none of our requests were too much. Our wedding day went exactly how it was planned. Louise and the team were very adaptable on the day with a few changes in timings and guest requirements. We could not have asked for a better day. We spent the day with our loved ones and big smiles on our faces. The Dodmoor team worked tirelessly in the background making sure everything was going smoothly & impressively even clearing up all the decorations etc and packing it into our cars, to make sure there was no post-wedding hassle. All of our guests and people we've shared photos with always commented on how beautiful the venue was. I am sure a lot of people are hesitating to get married due to COVID and we feel so lucky and happy that we decided to embrace it & do it now. Having our loved ones there, with the perfect balance of making us feel safe and secure and it being our special day. For any couples considering if to get married - our advice is simple - do it & do it at Dodmoor House!

Absolutely Fantastic
Thank you so much for everything during the planning for our wedding and, of course, during the day itself. Despite this year’s unprecedented challenges, you were thoroughly helpful and professional throughout and took the stress out of the situation for us as much as it was possible to do so. Despite the restrictions on numbers, our wedding day was absolutely fantastic – your team were brilliant on the day and everything ran superbly, we couldn’t have asked for more. Everything looked & happened just how we’d envisaged it. Everyone commented on how well organised everything was and how friendly and attentive all the staff were on the day. It felt like a long journey to get to the day but we made it!

Going the extra mile
Thank you to all the wonderful staff who worked so hard to make special day seem so effortless and beautiful. We couldn't have been happier with our choice or have been able to relax and enjoy the day as much as we did without you all, so a massive thanks to you all. Special thanks to Shona for all you did and for always being there - even going the extra mile in pulling off Jason's wellies! Also thank you to Sophie too for flawlessly taking the party into the night and controlling our unruly. We couldn't have asked for a better team! Love Rebecca and Jason

FAQ
(9)

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 remember having an actual ball when a mariachi band came in and played to everyone during dinner when we threw sombreros to guests from the mezzanine! A petting zoo with the cutest animals ever came and we cuddled rabbits, lambs and baby goats.

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 a bit of photo bunting up at the bar, 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!

What’s your favourite canapé?

We are partial to a little Yorkshire Pudding with beef and gravy!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Cake and biscuits - and not just at midnight! We are known for having a constant biscuit supply in the office and for having cake at our weekly meetings (and any other occasion that calls for it)!
