As I look at these photographs, I am taken right back to the stunning courtyard at Dodford Manor and can almost feel the heat on my back, remembering how hot this beautiful wedding day was!  It was a scorcher of a day, and not just because of the summer heatwave!

Dodford Manor Wedding

This gorgeous country, barn wedding venue is the perfect place for a wedding party. With exclusive use it is completely your own, for your family and friends to have an amazing time.  Surrounded by more than 20 acres of beautiful Northampton countryside, you really do feel you are in the middle of nowhere, with sheep grazing in the field alongside the party! The most beautiful setting for a private, intimate day with all of your loved ones. The grade II listed restored barn is the ideal setting for a picturesque wedding day!

Lacey & Scott had planned a relaxed, fun day.  Lenny the dog was a special guest and behaved impeccably- like it was a normal occurrence to get dressed up in a bow tie to watch his humans get married! The barn is full of character and stayed lovely and cool for the emotional ceremony.  Guests thoroughly enjoyed drinking celebratory drinks and canapes in the private gardens, in the centre of the barns. It was so hot during the day that we waited until the sun started to go down after speeches, to take a walk in the fields next door for some couple shots.

Partying was high on the agenda and Lacey & Scott had organised a karaoke sing off, along with dancing to get the party going!  I’m sure there were a few sore heads and sunburnt faces the next day- but sure signs of a brilliant wedding day!
