wedding food tasting days

Dodford Manor’s Taster Day is such an exciting and wonderful event in which you get to meet the full Events team together with the catering managers and catering team whilst enjoying a ‘semi’ wedding here at the venue!

As part of your wedding planning progress we invite you both to come and sample our unique wedding venue catering and experience Dodford Manor, your chosen wedding venue, in full swing!

It is a great opportunity to enjoy an informal, fun tasting event and sample some of our signature dishes for your big day! You will even be able to bring up to four guests with you to experience this exciting part of your wedding journey with you.

You can expect to be treated with delicious canapes and a glass of bubbly, selected from the Dodford Manor Cellar!

We also invite some of our recommended suppliers on site to enhance the celebratory atmosphere! Which means more opportunities for yourselves to plan more of your big day and decide on some vital factors for your day!

After tasting the fabulous canapes in the Mortain Barn you will then be invited through into Oak Barn and once seated, each will be served a different starter, main course and pudding, all enjoyed with selected Cellar Wines.  We do ask everyone to arrive with a hearty appetite!

The Tasting Day not only gives you a chance to savour examples of our sumptuous wedding day food (and try to decide what is most delicious for your own big day!) but also an informal setting in which to meet our top Jenkinsons catering team, who will be working with you to plan your own wedding day food.

Not to forget, the full Dodford Manor Cellar wine range is also available for you to sample!

Always tremendously fun and enjoyable, the Tasting Day is a great wedding food focused experience but also a chance for you both to enjoy a great informal occasion at Dodford Manor in advance of your very own wedding day.

special moments


Bursting with ‘WOW!’ factor, where historic meets contemporary style, bags of warmth, buzzing ambience, well designed spaces and fabulous surprise elements.

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!

We fell in love the moment we saw the venue, it was the first and only one we viewed. Our wedding was fantastic & we had the most amazing memorable day!
