A truly special wedding day in an absolutely magical location.

Magical and perfect place
Venue Service

By Louise & Joe Dower, on 17 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 10 Aug 2018

"Dode is the most magical and perfect place for a wedding and handfasting. The atmosphere is incredible. Despite having the most dramatic thunder storm it enhanced our day. Our guests were speechless and amazed, they had never been to such a unique venue. We had a wonderful banquet followed by joyousness and dance. Doug, Mary and the Dode Team are amazing and could not do enough to ensure our day went smoothly. With Dodes beautiful scenery we were spoilt for choice for photos." A very very happy Joe and Louise Dower

Fantastic day
Venue Service

By Lee & Charlotte Garratt, on 17 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 12 May 2018

Me and my husband got married here on the 12th of May this year. It was a fantastic venue. Would definitely recommend. Staff were extremely helpful in terms of responding to emails and questions, were present on the day to help with the smooth running of the service and seemed genuinely happy to celebrate the day with us. Our wedding pictures have come out incredible due to our amazing photographer @stevewood and also as a result of the building itself. A great day and well worth every penny! Thanks again Charlotte & Lee Garratt

Perfect Place
Venue Service

By Tom & Monique Shepherd, on 18 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 03 May 2018

We would like to thank you, Doug, and the rest of the team, for all you did to make our wedding run smoothly. Hopefully we will return to Dode sometime soon! The Lost Village of Dode was the perfect place for us to get married, and knew we wanted to enjoy our special day there from the moment we visited. Owners Doug and Mary are extremely helpful, and make the whole process of organising a wedding at Dode as trouble-free as possible. We were made to feel very welcome, and for one day, Dode truly felt like it was ours. Best wishes, Tom and Monique

There is nothing else like this!!
Venue Service

By Karen & Jim, on 31 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 16 Dec 2017

What can I say about this place? It is truly magical, we had our wedding here on December 16th and it is a day I will never forget, a beautiful building with a kissing bough, and lit torches on the wall, amazing atmosphere and true authenticity. We followed the ceremony with a hand fasting and again a wonderful experience despite the rain. As my friend said to his son, "you will go to many weddings in your life but never will there be another like this" Hope this is ok let me know if you want a couple of pics sent Karen

Brilliant Day
Venue Service

By Chris & Mandy Bell, on 13 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 09 Dec 2017

Hi Doug & Mary Just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for allowing Nik & Naomi to marry at Dode and being so kind as to do the hand fasting for them. It was great to see you. It was a brilliant day and would be so kind as to pass our thanks on to Graham who greatly assisted us on the day and helped tremendously in keeping things running smoothly. Hopefully if won’t be too long before we meet again in the meantime take care and know that Dode and yourselves will always be special to us. Chris & Mandy Bell
