Hi, We are Mark and Louise, who set up Dodmoor House as a wedding venue back in 2006 after a painstaking restoration of the Grade II listed barns next to our family home. We have since hosted more than 1,000 weddings and have lots of lovely wedding coordinators to help make sure that every wedding is entirely unique. We pride ourselves on offering also a very personal service, with your own dedicated wedding planner who is with you every step of the way to organise the wedding of your dreams!

Thank you
You were all amazing from the first open evening until after the wedding itself. You made the day worry free and thought of anything we had forgotten. As someone who likes to know exactly what's going on and to be in control, on the day I was relaxed as I knew the team had it all under control. Best Wedding Venue Ever! Thank you.

A big hit with everyone
Dodmoor House is a beautiful venue that we felt fit with our theme and the end to end planning service that the team offered was excellent. We just found someone being there every step of the way was a real comfort. Dodmoor also recommended quite a few of our suppliers who were a big hit with everyone.

The best memories from Dodmoor
We had our day on 25/10/19 and it was absolutely perfect for us. Right from enquiring through to us leaving the day after the wedding, the service was one of a kind. Steve and I decided it would be really fun to buy a house at the same time and so there were certain things we'd forgotten about for the wedding in the midst of it all. This wasn't a problem as Louise sorted things without a hitch! Louise and her team were everything we could have hoped for. Our day ran so smoothly and we now have the best memories from Dodmoor. Thank you so much! ❤

FAQ

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)!
