THE DODMOOR FAMILY
We don't like to call ourselves a team as we are so much closer than that! We all work cohesively to bring you the best day of your lives and constantly rely on each other for support, ideas and to make sure everything is planned to a tee.
In January 2019 we won 'Best Team' in the National Wedding Awards, and have previously won 'Best Venue' too!
We honestly all love our jobs and feel this really shows throughout your wedding planning process.
Without further ado please meet the Dodmoor House family...
MARK & LOUISE
Mark and Louise are the husband and wife duo behind our beautiful venue.
They converted the barns from scratch together in 2006 as they wanted to create a stylish venue and offer as much flexibility as possible to help couples have their very own special wedding day.
Ever since, they have put their heart and soul into making Dodmoor a dream wedding venue!
Inspiring a family atmosphere , contributing to the success of their business, and also valuing the loyalty, support and friendliness of the fantastic team behind them.
Carolyn is the longest serving member of staff starting part time at the little age of 16 when Dodmoor first opened.
She has run too many weddings to count and even got married here herself in July 2017.
She has a little girl Annabel, who we are all obsessed with!
Shona runs weddings and is in charge of operations for the venue!
She had her own wonderful wedding here at Dodmoor in September 2019!
Her spaniel Buddy is her pride and joy at the moment, and we love hearing about his adventures.
Loves Prosecco and cheese!
She is a wedding co-ordinator and the #Instagram Queen, always bringing you the best inspo for your special day. Creating new and exciting posts for the Dodmoor Blog.
Engaged in New Zealand and looking forward to her special day to come.
Aside from running weddings, she's our marketing girl and computer whizz.
Absolutely obsessed with weddings and can always be found reading a wedding blog, also engaged herself and getting married soon!
She's great at calligraphy and helps to create all the lovely signs around the venue.
Vicky is an actual whizz at running lots of weddings and also liaises with the hotels for our couples!
She probably drinks the most tea in the office & is the most likely to supply everyone with biscuits!
Vicky is our Gin expert, always recommending unique and exciting new flavours to try!!
Jeni is one of our trusted wedding co-ordinators and is also super practical and handy, usually our first point of call to fix things out in the venue!
Jeni also celebrated her own beautiful wedding here in August 2018.
She has the cutest cats called Gus & Syd and the sweetest new baby named George!
Ellie runs weddings and is Shona's right hand girl in operations, meaning she knows the venue like the back of her hand!
She has a degree in Events Management and is a hopeless romantic so a perfect fit for the role!!
She recently got a new kitten in lockdown named Luna.
Jaimie oversees the running of our bar as well as running weddings in the evenings. He knows his way around a drink so if you need any advice ask him!
He makes the world's best peanut butter and chocolate cookies and we constantly beg him to bake.
He is absolutely besotted with his little girl, Lizzie and we all love to see photos!
As head of the accounts, Lou is our lady in charge of the numbers and you'll probably have a chat with her when ringing up to pay for anything!
She gives Vicky a run for her money when it comes to the biggest tea drinker.
She really enjoys going on cruises with her husband and son in her spare time.
Em is our experienced wedding expert who will show you around the venue and can help bring your day to life on your viewings!!
When she's not at work, she can be found at festivals or shopping in Zara!
You probably won't meet Bramble but rest assured he is a huge part of our office life.
He constantly tries to steal our lunches; with lots of successful attempts, he likes his tummy being rubbed for all of 10 seconds before he gets annoyed and loves to bark at the post man.
All the makings of a naughty but cuddly dog.
