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)!
