dance the night away in the atmospheric Oak Barn

After an unforgettable wedding breakfast, it is time to ‘loosen up’ and relax!

The ‘I do’s’ are reality, the socialising together with bubbles and congratulations have been flowing, food is settling nicely… and the best man can breath a sign of relief that he has made it through the speech!

But before you put on your dancing shoes, there is the very important cutting of your wedding cake followed by your romantic first dance, surrounded by all your friends and family and newly arrived evening guests!

Talking about dancing, at the back of the Oak Barn with a stunning stone wall back-drop you will find the dance floor with lots of natural lights as well as spotlights, wall wash and dimmable lighting making for a chic and stylish location to dance the night away! Tunes will be provided by one of our fantastic Dodford Manor suppliers from our DJ & Entertainment list, carefully selected by yourselves. This is your guarantee to a fantastic evening party!

The Oak Barn slate stone stairs are taking you back up into the bar and lounge area, also known as the Dairy Barn, which is the perfect place to soak up all the atmosphere of the day in a more relaxed setting. Here you can enjoy a quieter drink with friends and family on luxurious leather Chesterfield sofas and wingback armchairs, whilst still connected to your party in the Oak Barn!

If you feel up to adding a bit of a fun factor to your evening reception, the Dairy Barn lends itself perfectly for a photo booth to get fun memories of all your friends and families’ faces printed for your future together. Or you can use the 200 year old stone side as a beautiful area for your guests to sign your wedding wishes book or somewhere to place a yummy sweet cart to keep your guests sweet!

So much variety can be added to create the day you’ve always been dreaming of!

The best day of my life. I could never pick a better place, there simply isn’t one.

We had the most amazing wedding day! Everything ran so seamlessly and we cannot praise the Dodford Manor staff enough. We only wish we could do it all again!

Our wedding day was just perfect! The team at Dodford Manor went above and beyond our expectations. The venue itself is amazing but all the staff make it exceptional!
