    A perfect experience!

    We knew Dodford would be the perfect place for us to get married the moment we saw the venue. The service was at the highest levels of excellence even during this pandemic. They were in constant contact, keeping us up to date with the ever changing guidance, and were very accommodating to any requirements we had, even two days before the wedding.
    The day ran like clockwork, making us and our guests feel comfortable and very welcome. Many guests commenting is was the best wedding they've ever been to.
    We would highly recommend Dodford Manor to any couple looking to get married in barn. Perfect setting, amazing staff and perfect experience from start to end.

    A perfect day

    We can’t thank Dodford enough for the most perfect wedding day we could have imagined.
    The planning process, tastings and meetings in the lead up were well organised and super helpful.
    All the staff, both at Dodford and Jenkinsons were friendly and nothing ever seemed too much trouble.
    Our guests were really impressed with the stunning venue and quality of the food and drink.
    If you want a beautiful barn wedding, we would totally recommend Dodford Manor- you won’t be disappointed!

    Beautiful Venue... perfect

    We celebrated the wedding of my daughter at Dodford Manor last weekend. It really is a beautiful venue and the day was absolutely perfect. The staff made sure everything ran smoothly (special thanks to Carla) and the food was delicious with incredibly generous portions. The barns have been beautifully and tastefully converted into an ideal wedding venue and the setting and views are glorious. I could not recommend it more highly.

    Smashed It!

    Team Dodford,

    We don't even know where to start.

    You guys absolutely smashed our wedding day from start to finish! Everything was perfect, everything flowed brilliantly and our wedding planner was beyond brilliant! The food was amazing, every detail we asked for was cover perfectly and Georgina was always one step ahead of us! It was everything we had hoped for and so so much more.

    Georgina....thank you for taking all our worries away and covering them off for us! You really were amazing and you helped keep me calm before we walked down the aisle.

    All of our guests have been beyond complimentary about you guys.

    We honestly don't think any other wedding venue can be topped by yours....all the awards you win are so deserved. As soon as we got engaged we knew we wanted to get married at Dodford before we had even visited you guys and our decision was absolutely one we will never ever regret.

    Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts, no words can actually do it justice to tell you just how happy we are with you guys
