Lost for Words
Venue Service

By Vanessa & Alfonso, on 07 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Sep 2018

Dear Dode team, Thank you so much for turning our wedding on 23 September into a truly magical event! From the first day we set foot into the church on a snowy day in March we knew it would have to be “our” venue - and that no other would do. But on the day it surpassed all of our expectations. Our families told us later how atmospheric the inside of the church was when they walked in. They even commented on the music and how fitting it was. The fact that we’d kept the venue a complete secret from all of them made it even more special. Every moment of the day was memorable and you and your team were so warm that it truly felt like a family party. I think I already mentioned to Becky in the run-up to the wedding how much I appreciated that the people you put us in touch with (Russell from Kitchen of Kent, Astrid from Nuptuowls, Robbie from Vintage Games, Cliff and Rebecca from Treats on a Tricycle, Jo from Moody Blooms and Matt James the photographer) were all a pleasure to deal with as well as being exceedingly good at their jobs. Our guests were stunned by the whole experience...their comments ranged from “magical” to “lost for words” and “unforgettable”. We can’t wait to visit Dode again! Many, many thanks! Vanessa & Alfonso

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
