Beautiful venue, good location and friendly staff
By Mariam and Lewis, on 24 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Aug 2018
Vibe at the viewing was much friendlier than at other venues, managed to give us all the information that we needed without overloading us, and we left confident that Dodmoor would allow us the flexibility that we wanted so we could make our wedding feel like it was a good reflection of us.
On the Day, Sophie appeared completely unflappable and was always solution focused. I cannot praise her enough - (she spent several minutes of the day helping me get confetti out of the lace of my dress!)
Everyone went above our expectations!

Amazing day, all staff were friendly, approachable and attentive.
Lots of our guests commented on the fantastic levels of service they received on the day too.
Your detailed itinerary, placing all our wedding bits around the wedding venue and level of service before, during and after our day.
We were made to feel extremely special and you would never have known there was a wedding the day before and after ours.
Drinks on the lawn (especially the gin bar) were a big hit and so relaxing.
BEST DAY EVER, INCREDIBLE SERVICE!!!

From the first visit on an open morning we have to Dodmoor we knew it was the venue for us. The grounds were beautiful, we had the bridal suite on site which was a big plus, the barns were beautiful and the staff could not have done more to help us and show the venue off to its best. As soon as we heard there was no corkage fee unlike all the other venues we had visited we knew it was for us.
We were so impressed with the amount of flexibility offered in terms of offering options for catering suppliers, music etc. We had some crazy ideas but Dodmoor worked with us to make these come to life such as entrance songs for the bridal party. We also wanted a Caribbean BBQ for the evening. We used Lemon Zest for the catering who were amazing and all guests commented on how great the food was. Helena Brown from By Arrangement did the flower arrangements which were beautiful and exactly what i asked for. Cookoboro BBQs did the evening food with Jerk chicken, lamb kofta's and burgers. Dodmoor were especially helpful as we decided to provide our own alcohol during the day and helped us decide the amount we needed with no pushing at all the buy their internal drinks package. We were especially impressed with how open they were to helping us provide an evening cocktail for our guests which went down a treat which a very low corkage fee. So much praise needs to go to Shona our wedding coordinator, she was there as a helping hand throughout the day and it was great to see her enjoying herself as well, she was so open to helping us make our ideas work and come together.
It was such a great day I didnt want it to end

Louise is amazing. So detailed in everything she does and helped me out so much with all the finer details that I hadn’t even thought about. Not to mention being a life saver with the flowers! Planning every detail to be exactly as I wanted it to be, and then making sure that the plan was followed and timings were kept to without being stressful or feeling like we were sticking to deadlines on the day.
Nothing is too much, they used all their expertise

We recently got married at Dodmoor House, we have the most fantastic day.
From the first contact on email, the open evening, final details meeting and the actual day the staff have been exceptional.
All the recommended suppliers we used including Emma Brooks Photography, Julie- Anna Flowers, Ariella Strings, Melody Cakes, Sweet and Scrumptious were outstanding. I would definitely recommend using people they know it makes the day go much better and they have chosen the people for a reason.
Carolyn our day wedding co-ordinator and Jeni our evening manager were outstanding, checking through out the day that we were happy and seeing if anything could be done for us.

This is just a brief thank you to everyone at Dodmoor who helped make Libby and Dane's wedding such a wonderful occasion last Saturday. From the time I made my first tentative inquiries, right through all the planning and preparation, and all through the day itself, all the members of your staff have always been so supportive, helpful and positive. The venue is gorgeous and provides a fantastic setting but it is your staff who make Dodmoor House such a wonderful wedding venue. Thank you one and all.
With best wishes to all
We didnt have to worry about a single thing!

Shona and Kathryn were the ultimate professionals ensuring everything ran smoothly and everyone was where they needed to be. The team were very welcoming from day one, with a very warm and personal service. They were very happy to make a bespoke wedding for us. At no point did we think we were buying a package like a other venues. The size of the venue was perfect for what we wanted and the staff were very down to earth.
Shona even gave Hayley direction on holding her bouquet from stage left! Everything was just wonderful! We should also mention how the team decorated the Catesby Barn to the letter exactly how (control freak) Hayley wanted it. It was just perfect!
Staff went above and far beyond our expectations
By Adele and Richard, on 26 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Mar 2018
We felt so looked after whether it was a face to face meeting or a simple request by phone or email, nothing was too much and we always came away feeling in safe hands. Then when it came to the day what can we say, it ran like clockwork and just knowing someone was always there just in the background looking after you was so reassuring, can't say enough!
A snowy wedding day!
By Mr and Mrs Thurlbourn, on 15 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Mar 2018
We just wanted to send a note of thanks to you and your staff for all the care and help on a very snowy evening. Upon arriving at the venue on an extremely snowy evening we wasn't sure how or if we would make it back to our hotel - but your staff made it possible so we were able to carry on and enjoy our evening and celebrate the joyous occasion with our family.
Many thanks to all the staff and what a wonderful wedding venue.
Couldnt be happier with the whole experience
By Alexis and Gary, on 28 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Feb 2018
The customer service we received was nothing we could explain. You were extremely helpful with every aspect of the wedding, so enthusiastic with every element of the day, we looked forward to seeing you at every open evening and speaking to you when we needed to because you kept the excitement of the planning and build up alive every step of the way.
The venue is beautiful, the staff are so friendly they almost become family by the time you leave and we loved every minute from start to end. Can we do it again? ??
By Shelley and Mark, on 15 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Feb 2018
I don’t think either of us can quite believe what an amazing day it was! The day was everything we wished for and so much more. We knew you guys were good but seriously hats off for helping us pull off a truly fabulous day.
We have received so many comments from our guests, not only commenting on what a beautiful venue you have, but saying what wonderful hosts you were. Everything went seamlessly and you and your staff were all so friendly and approachable. Drinks were flowing generously, food by Ian & Tina was amazing and the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere just put everyone at ease - Nothing was a problem! Claire and the rest of the team did an absolutely amazing job of keeping everything on track, and if there were any problems / issues we (along with our guests) were completely oblivious to this. The little touches like giving Evie a birthday card are so thoughtful and sweet, you just wouldn't get that anywhere else.
Thank you, thank you THANK YOU!

We first visited just over two years ago when we came to our first open evening.. we fell in love with the place as soon as we pulled into the drive way, with all the twinkly lights it just looks beautiful!
Carolyn showed us round and then helped us for the whole two years of planning..and was with us on our wedding day too, she was AMAZING right from the moment we met her, bubbly, friendly and so helpful, she couldn’t do enough for us. She truly cared about us and our day and I can’t recommend her enough. We will miss seeing her on all our open days.
The venue was spotlessly clean and organised, they are on top of everything all the time, the whole day ran perfectly, they are experts at what they do.. and they really think of every little detail.
We were able to truly relax and enjoy every second of our day knowing you had it all under control.. we really did have the best day we could of ever wish for.
