Great Service!
Spent a wonderful afternoon and evening as a guest at a wedding here. The couple couldn't have chosen a better place. Plenty of space both inside and out and great service from the staff. An ideal wedding venue. I stayed at the local Holiday Inn (5 minutes away) which provided a taxi service back there at the end of the evening

A Service beyond belief.
Our daughter recently got married at Dodmoor House. We cannot praise them highly enough. The organisation skills of Carolyn are second to none and there was nothing too minor to ask. The staff were attentive and friendly and worked so hard. It is a venue that provided a service well beyond what was expected and made the day an event to remember. Thank you to all concerned. What a beautiful venue to celebrate a beautiful day.

Attention to Detail
As a dad I need to sit down and process all that went on. I will write again once things have settled however, nothing and I mean nothing was left undone. The venue and staff were superb. The care and attention to detail was beyond belief. Thank you to all for one of the most special days of my life.

Fantastic Every Step of The Way
We got married at Dodmoor back in June and i can honestly say we had the most perfect wedding day 💕 Dodmoor House is such a beautiful venue and the staff were fantastic every step of the way, from our very first visit right to the very end of our wedding celebrations 🎉 They really make planning a wedding so much easier! I got ready at Dodmoor with my bridesmaid and Mum, so it was really lovely seeing and hearing guests arriving (although they can't see or hear you) and it takes out the stress of traveling from a wedding venue to a reception. The venue is really lovely and intimate too which gives a wonderful feel to the day. So many of our guests commented on how you could just feel the love from everyone ❤ I really recommend looking at the drinks package and the hog roast and sweet shop although i think they have even more choice for you now too! Also there recommended suppliers list as we found this really helpful when we were first planning our wedding. Don't hesitate to book Dodmoor you'll have an amazing day and the staff are amazing!! Thank you everyone and our coordinator Tanice for such a truly wonderful day!

We Loved Dodmoor
We had the most amazing wedding last weekend at Dodmoor House, it was everything we had hoped it would be and Kathryn and the team worked so hard to make this happen. They were so on the ball with everything and quickly put into place ‘plan b’ when the unforecast rain hit us and yet everything was still so seamless....😍. We loved Dodmoor from the first moment we saw it and it didn’t disappoint in anyway. We will have such fantastic memories of our special day forever and can’t thank you enough for that. We would highly recommend anyone to get married here. Thank you Dodmoor 😊

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

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

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

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.

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

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!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

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.

Where’s the best photo spot 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!

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

Our team!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Romantic, Exclusive, Friendly, Warm and Happy!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

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

What is your venue's most unique feature?

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)!
