Table Linen and Runners 

There are so many different table layouts available for your wedding across the two barns. We do ask that all your linen is supplied by your caterers or hired from an external company.

Below we have listed all the table linen you will need for the different layouts as well as runner lengths if you'd like these too.  If you are looking at chair covers please see the section below to check they will fit the chairs and they work with your plans for the day.

We will send you the exact linen you will need about six weeks before your wedding, after our day in detail meeting.

We will also confirm the linen requirements with either your caterers or supplier prior to the wedding and arrange a drop off and collection time to Dodmoor House.

Please be aware you may need additional cloths for a buffet, tea and coffee station and that all important cake table which are all dependant on what you are having!

CHAIR COVERS OR SASHES

We have 120 chairs in total and will often move some over the the meal room after the ceremony.  You will need to consider

 if you are going to have chair decoration in both rooms to work out the number of covers you need.  We are happy to move them between the barns but remember if you keep the number to a minimum the meal room cannot be fully set until after the ceremony is over.

 

We would normally leave up to 20 chairs in the Courtyard Barn after the ceremony for the drinks reception and early evening so it may be a good idea to have at least these extra over the number of guests coming, this will also allow for additional chairs set out for the ceremony.

When it is wet we would normally quickly stack and remove chairs from the ceremony room at the same time as bringing drinks into the room, please be aware that chair covers can slow this process down a little.

Chair sizes

Our chairs are 44cm (17.3in) deep x 50cm (19.7in) wide and the distance from seat to floor (ie legs) is 46cm (18.1in). The height of the chair back from seat to top is 49cm (19.3in) and the total height from the floor to the top of the chair is 95cm (37.4in).
