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.

There is nothing else like this!!

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

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

Hi Doug & Mary
Just thought I would drop by to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done for myself and Dan to make our wedding so special. From the day ( 2 years ago nearly) we stepped in Dode and met you we knew instantly that was our venue! Everything went to plan right from the start. Stress free with nothing to worry about. You have all been amazing both yourselves ,Graham, Ray everyone!!! I had wedding blues so we drove up to Dode today just to see it in its snow glory and my gosh it was beautiful! A couple was just leaving from the cottages who had their wedding yesterday and we got chatting. Honestly from both our hearts without you all our wedding day wouldn’t have been possible.
We collected our professional photos last Wednesday. I will send some over to you via email.
Can’t wait to be back for the Christmas carol service next week.
Lots of love
Holly and Dan 01/12/17 x

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and graham for making our day so special.
It was beyond perfect and quite simply we couldn't have wished for a better day.
Dode is now a very special place in our heart and every one who came said how beautiful the setting and handfasting was.
Thank you once again and we hope to be back after a year and a day!!
