Dodford Manor Wedding Photography
Dodford Manor is an exclusive use barn wedding venue set against a most magnificent backdrop of rolling Northamptonshire countryside. This is the type of venue you pull in to and instantly imagine where your shots are going to be taken. The rolling driveway and endless views over the countryside make it a fantastic venue to work at. Considering Dodford can manage five weddings a week I was so stoked when I took this picture, not only because the lighting is all kinds of epic, but it’s an angle of Dodford Manor that I’ve not seen in anyone else’s portfolio. I love giving couples something that is completely unique as no matter how many you shoot, no two weddings are the same. I pride myself on pushing to create something unique, and in each of the following three weddings, I’m pretty sure I nailed it.
I’m told Dodford Manor underwent a massive restoration project in order to get it to its current state of splendor and it has really paid off. The layout of the venue is perfect, providing an intimate and secluded location whilst maintaining focus on the superb views. The crowning glory has to be the panoramic views during the wedding breakfast, floor to ceiling glass fills the room and allows diners to enjoy the expanse of countryside all evening.
Dodford Manor is packed with charm and the layout is excellent photographically speaking, it allows a sense of openness yet keeps the guests all in one place to make co-ordination much more efficient. As soon as I saw that hill when I entered the venue I knew it had to be done.
