⠼best wedding ever⠝

It is all thanks to Lydia and the team at Dodford that my husband and I have spent the first days of our honeymoon being flooded with messages of admiration of our wedding. The venue itself is stunning but the magic that Lydia sprinkled into our special day is what makes her so outstanding. Could not recommend highly enough! 🧡

Wonderful Team of Staff at Dodford

We had an August wedding at Dodford Manor and we were so so pleased with how the day turned out - what a fantastic team of committed and enthusiastic staff they have at Dodford. Everybody, from start to finish, was professional, friendly, kind and helpful - we couldn't ask for more. Our coordinator on the day, Lauren, was great - so friendly and organised. The caterers, Jenkinsons, were exceptional- so many guests commented on the food and everyone was well fed all day (not always the case at weddings!). Venue is a great size - not too big, so it feels intimate and warm. Cannot fault the venue, the service or the team - thank you Dodford!

Absolutely perfect venue! Can I give 10 stars?!

My husband and I got married at Dodford Manor in February 2022 and I cannot say enough amazing things about the venue and the team. We were planning and coordinating our wedding from our home in Los Angeles which was no easy feat but the team at Dodford seriously took the reigns for us and worked around the time difference so that we could “view” the venue over FaceTime. My sister in England was able to view it all and was even able to schedule herself for the taste test on behalf of myself and my husband. They have amazing catering and lists of DJs and florists and decorators and other vendors so you don’t have to think too much about all your choices as you know if Dodford says they’re good then they’re good! I was able to be such a hands off bride and just show up and have the wedding happen around me which was 100% what I wanted. They really treated us like royalty and went out of their way to ensure everyone had an amazing time. Oh and it’s wheelchair accessible which was a must for us!
We went with Rob Lawes for the music and Beau Weddings for the decor and flowers. Everyone made is so easy and for such an amazing price too. Cannot thank them all enough. If we had to do it all again I’d pick Dodford every time!!
My photographer was Motiejus and videographer Luke Pilbeam who I highly recommend. I love all my photos and my video is perfect.

I can not recommend this venue enough! Dodford Manor is absolutely stunning. We need as soon as we went to view that it was the venue for us. The grounds are beautiful and there is so much space. The staff make this venue even better. They are so helpful and support with everything from recommendations to the set up of the day they really do go above and beyond. The catering is amazing. Our guests couldn’t believe how good the food was. Everything about this venue is incredible.

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.

Best day of our lives!

The team at Dodford Manor were really incredible from start to finish! From when we first viewed the venue 20 months before our big day, right up until our guests left on the night of our wedding, the whole team were amazing! The venue itself is just stunning and so many of our guests said just how beautiful it is. The team running our day were so helpful, so attentive and made our day perfect. We cannot recommend Dodford Manor enough, not just as an amazing venue, but the team and staff make the venue even more incredible! Thank you for everything.

The best venue

We had the best experience as they are all such an attentive team. From our first booking to view the venue until picking up our items after the big day we were so well looked after, no question too small and emails replied to promptly (even during evening and weekends!) Our wedding coordinator on the day was amazing, she ensured the day ran smoothly (they clearly have a good system!) and I fully recommend Dodford Manor to any future couples!

We can’t thank Dodford enough for the most perfect wedding day we could have imagined.

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!
