Dodford Manor really is the photographer's dream! A stunning, rustic barn venue nestled in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside, this venue has more photo opportunities than you could possibly imagine. From the traditional, intricate stonework, to the rolling green fields, to the wooden beams adorned with fairy lights, this is the perfect location for your quintessentially English country wedding.
"Brad was our photographer for our wedding at Dodford Manor just a few weeks ago, and he was absolutely excellent. From our initial enquiry through to him sending us the pictures, and every stage in between, he was been extremely professional and went out of his way to make it go smoothly for us and understand what we wanted. We had a few meetings before to discuss timings for the big day and style of photos we wanted, and Brad exceeded expectations. On the day he was amazing, patient with us - the bride and groom - and he was evidently passionate and creative too about what he was doing. We are both delighted with the service and photos received, would highly recommend Brad!"

ASK THE PHOTOGRAPHER
WHEN DID YOU SHOOT YOUR FIRST WEDDING HERE?
2nd March 2019 - I'll never forget the date, because it was my son's 1st birthday! Fortunately my wife loved the wedding photos so much that she forgave me for missing it!
WHY DO YOU LOVE SHOOTING AT DODFORD MANOR?
As I said at the top, Dodford Manor is truly the photographer's dream! The set-up is so slick and well organised that everything runs like clockwork - which really helps to keep everyone calm and relaxed on your big day. The location is STUNNING! The perfect mix of rustic, country charm combined with true elegance and class. There are countless opportunities to get the perfect photo here, both inside and out, and as a photographer it's always a relief to know that there are great back-up options indoors too if the heavens do decide to open!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE AREA FOR COUPLES' PORTRAITS AT DODFORD MANOR?
For me, it's got to involve the beautiful rolling fields. They are just the perfect backdrop for any couple's shoot - there's a long, sweeping driveway to walk down, some rustic fences for you to lean on, and sometimes even some little lambs in the background! You can't beat the peace and seclusion of that spot and it's the perfect area to get some romantic shots of just the two of you.
ANY TOP TIPS FOR GETTING THE MOST OUT OF OUR WEDDING PHOTOS AT DODFORD MANOR?
If you're hiring a special car for the day, make sure to ask the driver to stay for some photos once you arrive - the driveway in front of the barn is stunning and is the perfect place for you to get some elegant shots with your vintage vehicle! If we're lucky enough to get a beautiful sunset, let me take you outside just the two of you to capture that special moment - the sun setting over the fields is truly glorious, and will add such an extra special dimension to your wedding photos!
