About Dodmoor House

Dodmoor House is a family-run, award-winning venue tucked away in rural Northamptonshire, offering bespoke wedding services and unique spaces for your ceremony and reception. The three grade II-listed barns at Dodmoor date back over 400 years and were recently renovated to provide you with modern facilities including AV capabilities and heated flooring. Hire of Dodmoor House includes a dedicated personal wedding coordinator who will offer consistent support from two months before your big day to ensure every detail is attended to, from flower arrangements to technical assistance.

The primary ceremony areas at Dodmoor House are the barns, all of which come with guaranteed exclusive use. Just outside the main building, the Courtyard Barn is an elegant and romantic space with glass double doors for excellent natural light. Up to 100 guests can be seated for a ceremony here, and it also makes a great quieter spot during the evening's festivities.

The Catesby Barn, a stylish space with a double height ceiling, oak beams and a built-in mezzanine bar, makes the perfect reception and party area. Up to 96 guests can enjoy your wedding breakfast here, before the room transforms into a party venue with a dance floor, speakers and easy access to the bar above.

If you’ve been dreaming of saying ‘I do’ outdoors, then Dodmoor House is sure to please, with three unique al fresco ceremony areas, each boasting a stunning backdrop of the rustic barns and manicured grounds.

Your wedding planner will recommend local suppliers for all aspects of your day and can offer trusted partners for things like catering and entertainment. There are two choices for catering, each providing competitive rates and delicious food, or if you’d prefer to select your own, you can do so for a small fee. It's also possible to provide your own alcohol with a corkage option, or opt for a drinks package which comes with bartenders included.

Courtyard Barn

Courtyard Barn

The Courtyard Barn offers a romantic, intimate barn venue for your civil ceremony, with lots of natural daylight and the stylish character of the exposed rafters in the ceiling. Underfloor heating beneath the flagstones and lots of sparkling candles on the windowsills and pillars ensure that it is cosy in the winter, while five glass double-doors offer plenty of natural light as they open out onto the patio for summer weddings. Our pallet wall gives you the freedom to add decorations and create your own dream backdrop too, we provide jam jars as standard. ? Around 100 guests can be seated for civil ceremonies, with either a traditional lay-out of a long aisle or with the ceremony table set up in the middle of the room with rows of guests seated on either side. The barn can also act as a wet weather drinks area, either after a church wedding or a civil ceremony, and guests return here after their wedding breakfast for tea and coffee. ? Later on, it is the cosy, quieter area for guests to chat in during the evening, as well as somewhere for everyone to enjoy any evening food - or perhaps even a fun casino or sweet shop!

The courtyard

The courtyard

The Dodmoor hot spot! This is the adjoining space between all our barns, set across two levels. The courtyard is an amazing space for a drinks reception, it really keeps everybody together and is such a suntrap in summer! Most couples like to incorporate the courtyard into their aisle walk.

Main house and lawn

Main house and lawn

Set back down a gravel drive beholds the quaint 'main house'. This used to be the owners house, however we have now taken it over as our office space. Lots of couples use the main house as a photo backdrop, which always makes a stunning photo! The main house lies next to our lawn area. Featuring its own bar, tables and chairs and a great space to enjoy our garden games. The lawn area would be a perfect place for a hot summer day's drinks reception as it incorporates sun with shade from the trees. The lawn area overlooks a canal, which also makes for a great photo!

Testimonials For Dodmoor House

Flexible & AccommodatingAUGUST, 2023

"We fell in love with Dodmoor from the moment we set foot on the grounds. It was Mark who showed us round and he was so passionate about his venue, and really showed an interest in our day. We felt like we were the only people to get married there and just knew it was the place for us. It is a beautiful venue and perfect for an intimate ceremony. From the off, Dodmoor were so helpful with the information they provided - not only about how you can make the day your own but also a super helpful list of recommended suppliers! They are so flexible and accommodating, we provided a lot of our own decorations which they kindly set up for us, and we also provided our own reception drinks including Pimms and they cut and prepped all the fruit for us. We had the day in detail meeting about 3 months before our day which helped us feel so reassured that everything was on track. It meant that on the day we could just completely relax and let the day run without any stress. Our co-ordinator Eleanor was just fantastic! We cannot thank you and Dodmoor enough."

Georgia and Scott

Relaxed, Cosy, Intimate and Rustic MAY, 2023

"I couldn’t fault Dodmoor house, we are truly grateful for all of the help and support the staff gave us starting right from when we arranged a viewing up until the last second of our big day. If you are looking for a stress free venue that you can trust to not have a single glitch, this is the venue for you. They tell you exactly what you need to do and point you in the right direction for every single step. They set up all of our decorations which were placed exactly how I imagined, they cleared everything away at the end of the night, all I had to do was place the boxes back in to our cars. The venue itself was perfect for what we wanted - relaxed, cosy, intimate, rustic. Beautiful in any weather, amazing photo backdrops. It was the most perfect day and we will cherish Dodmoor House and the team forever. You will not be disappointed as you can tell by the reviews/awards, this venue means business when it comes to planning weddings, no matter how unique or classic. Thank you Dodmoor for everything."

Gave us the best day of our livesSEPTEMBER, 2022

"Dodmoor House was the first venue we looked at in 2022 after getting engaged, and immediately we both fell in love. We adored the rustic barn aesthetic, the coziness of the whole place, the decorations, and the fact that the venue has a bridal suite for the couple after the wedding, and to get ready in on the morning of. The staff are simply amazing, and our wedding co-ordinator Eleanor was flawless, and she executed our every wish and desire for the day. Everything was set up to perfection with no stress on our part, every aspect of the day went perfectly and smoothly. Eleanor seemed to know exactly what we needed at any given moment and appeared like magic. Dodmoor House simply gave us the best day of our lives and we will be forever grateful to them for that."
