This place is a hidden gem nestled in the heart of Northamptonshire, and it dishes up all the rustic charm you could dream of for your special day.

So, let's dive in and explore what makes Dodford Manor the perfect barn wedding venue whilst I share some shots of Diane + Steve's incredible wedding there.



Dodford Manor has been around for ages – I'm talking way back in Saxon times! It was even owned by Robert the Count of Mortain, who was none other than William the Conqueror's half-brother.

It's surrounded by breathtaking countryside and sits atop more than 20 acres of stunning landscapes!

There are a variety of spaces to make your big day feel extra special. The grain store, now known as the Bridal Beauty Booth, is the perfect spot for you and your squad to get pampered before the main event.

Then there's the Mortain Barn, where your ceremony takes place. With its stone-flagged flooring, wooden beams, and restored ironstone walls, it sets the most romantic scene for saying your vows.


After your "I dos," it's time for a delicious wedding breakfast in the Oak Barn. This place is absolutely stunning, with its oak-framed structure and floor-to-ceiling glass walls.

The way the light streams through the glass walls is something else, and the panoramic views of the countryside take your breath away!

Then, as the sun sets, the Oak Barn transforms into an enchanting space perfect for your evening celebration.

One thing I really love about Dodford Manor is the versatility it offers, letting you choose the kind of wedding you've always dreamed of. Whether that's a sunny outdoor ceremony in the beautiful courtyard or a cosy winter wedding in the barn.

And there are endless possibilities for stunning and creative photographs that capture the essence of your love story in a way that feels authentic and uniquely you.

The team there are top-notch, always ready to go the extra mile to ensure that your wedding day is absolutely perfect. It's no wonder they've won so many awards!


So there we have it! Dodford Manor is an absolute stunner of a venue and provided the perfect backdrop for all the love and laughter of Diane + Steve’s wedding day.
