your barn

to create


Yours and yours alone, Dodford Manor is here for you to enjoy your most momentous day of your lives! Surrounded by more than 20 acres of glorious Northamptonshire countryside this award-winning Grade II listed restored barn wedding venue is the perfect setting for your wedding day.

Enjoy your wedding day as it flows seamlessly from preparations and excitement in the Grain Store (the Bride’s Beauty Booth), to your marriage into the historic Mortain Barn.  Surprise your guests as they are invited into the previously hidden Oak Barn; where you can ‘Feast and Fizz’ your way through the afternoon in the naturally lit, visually stunning glass walled Oak Barn…before the light fades, views disappear, and the Oak Barn transforms into a warm atmospheric evening party setting for you to dance the night away.

From 11am on your wedding day the only people within the grounds at Dodford Manor are here at your request, which gives you that unique exclusivity. This adds an extra special dimension to your wedding day.

You are our sole focus throughout the day and you will have your own Dodford Manor Wedding Event Manager and Catering Team looking after you from start to finish making everything perfect for you! Relax and enjoy your momentous day in the knowledge that you will be looked after by our multi-award-winning wedding team.
