inner & outer courtyards
WEST WALL LAWN & FIELDS
You are married! Hooray!! You’ve said your ‘I do’s’ and now it is time to celebrate with your nearest and dearest!
Ideally, on a sunny day, your drinks reception will be held in the Inner courtyard with the backdrop of 20 acres of glowing countryside and fields full of grazing sheep. Away from all the hustle and bustle of the rest of the world you can soak up the sunshine with your loved ones and toast on your fabulous wedding day.
After you’ve enjoyed a few drinks your photographer will take you on a nice stroll through the west fields on Dodford Manor grounds to take stunning photos of you newlyweds. There are endless unique and individual photograph opportunities from long ranging rural backdrops, woodlands and pasture, to amazing westerly sunsets and a range of stunning outbuildings and yards, not to mention St Mary’s Church quietly looking across.
When in the fields…Mind the woollies! They do love to come and congratulate the lovely couple! Don’t forget to bring your wellies on a rainy day, they make for some great photos with a fun touch!
The outer courtyard, with our signature olive tree in the middle, lends itself as a wonderful backdrop and a perfect place to take gorgeous photos with your bridal party!
Did you arrive in style? Park your bridal car next to the olive tree to ensure it is some of those lovely photographs for unforgettable memories!
Whilst you have your photographs taken you can keep your guests entertained by providing them with fun garden games to play in the inner court yard during the drinks reception. They can get involved in playing Giant Jenga, Connect 4 or a game of Chess…whatever garden game you decide to bring! An ice breaker for all your guests!
There is plenty of space to play with and to use to create the best setting for your big day!
