After we walked the Camino de Santiago together and visited many small churches along the way Dode was always going to be the perfect choice for us. Dode has exceeded all our expectations, totally unique, peaceful and tranquil and will forever be in our hearts. We would like to thank Doug, Mary & Graham and the Registrars David & David. 3rd December 2015

Hello to you both, David and I had a fantastic magical day yesterday. It all went like clockwork. Thank you for your help and organisation in making our day so stress free. Please thank Graham for the kind and caring way he looked after us all during the whole day. When we left this morning we placed a plaque in front of our tree, it is made of oak. We are hoping to be back at Dode next year to renew our wedding vows. Kind regards to you both. Lesley and David x

Very intimate and romantic and Dave and I can't wait to be married in such a beautiful setting. We will see Doug on Saturday . Thank you once again both of you.

It was a pity about the weather because I was very keen to do the renewal by the stones this time. However, it was just as lovely in the church although I missed jumping the broomstick this time round as well – mind you if the vows are renewable every year and one day – we could definitely be regulars lol. We both love Dode not only for its beauty but the history of the place. You are both so friendly and welcoming and everyone says how lovely it is there. No doubt we will be back to visit in the not too distant future. Kindest regards Debbie & Paul Renewal of Hand Fasting Vows 23rd Aug 2015
