Hi there Brides and Grooms!

We hope the #BeastfromtheEast hasn't completed ruined your week? We've ploughed through (literally) to make sure our couples still have their dream days; maybe just a little colder than expected?

 

February was a big month for us - mainly because we unveiled our newly refrubished Honeymoon Suite and Dodford Room! After a while pinning away at Home decor and #homeinspo on Instagram we decided to go for a more neutral colour scheme with warm greys and reclaimed wood features. Industrial style lights hang from both barns and we filled the bed with fluffy pillows and a huge snuggly throw (perfect for a night like tonight)!

We are so pleased with the outcome and we hope you are too?

 

 

The winner of the cutest speech drink award has to go to Shelley and Mark who got married in early February. They gave us a recipe for an Earl Grey infused gin cocktail for guests to toast with before settling down to a scrumptious afternoon tea. They even provided us with ice cubes with flowers suspended in them for that wow factor! 

Remember - you don't have to have Prosecco for your speeches, we've done it all from gin and tonics to tequila slammers, vintage whiskies to jagerbombs!

 

Continuing with Shelley and Mark's dreamy wedding - the cake! Shop bought cakes are increasing popular as they are super yummy but also help keep the cost down sllightly. This gorgeous naked cake was from Waitrose and a friend decorated it with icing sugar, fresh flowers and a statement cake topper!

 

It's a well known fact that children aren't the biggest fan of weddings, there's lots of sitting down and being good! We like to encourage a safe place for young ones to play under the eye of their parents so are happy to set up a toybox area with a comfy rug either in the Courtyard Barn during your drinks reception or even under the mezzanine if it's clear of tables during the meal. 

We can also set up a little activity station on a table and you could bring in crayons, colouring books, etc. 

 

Alexis and Gary's table plan was brilliant! They made up little pouches of goodies, popped little flags with guests' names and table numbers and guests were encouraged to "Use your treat to find your seat"! We have the perfect little square table to display them on. 

We hope you all enjoy your snowy weekends; why not head over to our Pinterest boards and get some more inspiration for your weddings! 

Love

The Dodmoor Family

We live in Dubai and I doubt any venue would have cared as much as Louise and Mark. They made every step simple.
