Located in four acres of beautiful land, Dodmoor House is a converted Grade II listed barn with original features such as the wooden beams and exposed brick walls with romantic touches. All three barns are positioned around the courtyard – the hub of every wedding – covered with hundreds of fairylights.
The landscaped grounds include seasonal plants and flowers meaning colour all year round for photos. The lawn is the star in the summer with a giant oak tree offering much-needed shade, and the premises are situated next to a country lane, which provides a lovely walk for couples to have photos. The secret garden down on the lawn has a brick wall lined with rose bushes and a feature mirror and doorway.
Ceremonies of up to 100 guests take place in the Courtyard Barn, which offers five large glass doors that can be left open in hot weather, making the service almost feel like it’s taking place outside. There are original wooden beams and the light-up pallet wall at the end of the aisle, which offers an ideal backdrop to say ‘I do’.
Smaller ceremonies up to 60 guests can take place in the Catesby Barn with a double-height ceiling with two iron candelabras, which can be decorated with foliage to add more drama.
This area is also where the wedding breakfast takes place. Here guests can be seated on traditional round tables, which seat up to 58 guests or long trestles tables, which bring a more informal feel to the barn that can seat up to 80 guests. The mezzanine, which overlooks the ground floor, can seat a further 16.
The Courtyard Barn lends itself perfectly for smaller wedding breakfasts up to 58 guests on round tables or one large banqueting table, where up to 44 guests can all sit together for an intimate and inclusive meal.
In the evening, the party takes place in the Catesby Barn, with the modern Mezzanine Bar coming alive!
