We are a family-run venue and passionately believe in giving your wedding the personal touch it deserves. Exclusive use is always guaranteed, and we can provide you with an extensive list of local suppliers to contact if you choose. Alternatively, we offer the flexibility of sourcing all of your own suppliers if you wish, and we would be happy to offer site visits to discuss their plans in more detail.
We offer as much – or as little – help as you want throughout the planning of your day, and hold an in-depth planning meeting with you two months before the wedding to go through everything in detail, so that nothing is left to chance on the big day. We also hold a number of Open Events throughout the year, giving you the chance to chat about ideas with us, meet potential suppliers and show your venue off to your family and friends!
The barns at Dodmoor House date back just over 400 years, are Grade II listed and were stylishly converted by Mark and Louise Bradley in a two year renovation project. The venue opened to the public in 2006 and now hosts around 100 weddings per year. Dodmoor House is situated on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, just off the A5 near Weedon and is around eight miles from Northampton. We are easily accessible from junction 16 of the M1 and are close to Daventry, Rugby and Milton Keynes.
Dodmoor House is licensed for civil ceremonies and civil partnerships, enabling you to host your wedding at exactly the same venue as the reception and evening party, and is also the perfect place to host your celebrations after a church wedding.
We can cater for up to 90 guests for a civil ceremony in the Courtyard Barn and a seated wedding breakfast in the Catesby Barn and have the capacity for 180 guests for the evening celebrations.
The luxurious honeymoon suite is available for you from midday on the day of your wedding, and is your own personal space with a four poster bed, exposed beams and wooden floors. The en-suite bathroom offers plenty of room for you to get ready before the ceremony, and comes complete with a double-ended bath power shower and dressing table. We will serve continental breakfast to you the next day as you enjoy your first morning together as a married couple.
We offer a simple but flexible pricing structure and the venue fee includes not only exclusive use of the whole venue, but also lots of extras:
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, we would love to hear from you.
