your barn

the all-important I do's

Time to say your all-important “I do’s”!! This is the moment you’ve been building up to for such a long time, the moment all your guests are eagerly waiting for!

Licensed for civil ceremonies and civil partnerships, your wedding ceremony will take place in the atmospheric, warm, rustic and very special Mortain Barn, the most historic building of the venue. Constructed in the 1680’s as a large threshing barn.

Bathed in the natural light, with its mixture of stone flagged flooring and exposed wooden beams it makes a unique setting for all sizes. It creates a very intimate atmosphere for a smaller wedding with 30-40 close family and friends. Upon using the viewing gallery, the barn allows a maximum of 170 family and friends to witness your ceremony.

Traditional and simple in layout, allowing the bride her graceful sway down the beautiful long aisle, the Mortain barn is packed with unique features including ‘arrow slit’ windows, flag stoned floors and a gallery. The Gallery is the ideal place for musicians to be positioned if you are not using it for seating for your guests.  It can be a great spot for your photographer to capture your perfect moments at the same time.

With the fabulous British weather in mind(!) the Mortain Barn is the ideal plan B for your drinks reception which can be turned into a perfect open barn area in which fabulous group photographs can be taken and confetti can be thrown for that ultimate confetti shot!

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!
