Its unique marriage room, built over 900 years ago is small in scale and suitable for parties of up to a maximum of only 40 guests, people that are truly special to you as a couple. Only one wedding per day is held on Thursdays, Fridays or Saturdays from the 1st April to the 31st October each year. Every wedding ceremony is special and unique to your individual requirements.

Christmas weddings on Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays may also be held from the 1st until the 23rd of December.

Our weddings start at £5,500 plus VAT. This includes the photographer, church flowers and our fabulous two course meal.

We had the most wonderful wedding at Dode. It was just what we wanted- intimate and loving and beautiful. Everyone helped and contributed and it really was perfect. So the Reluctant Bride was won over!!!!

Arranging a wedding can sometimes be daunting. To help we have an experienced wedding co-ordinator who can talk you through every aspect of the build up to the day itself and if required to arrange any aspect for you.


The uniqueness of Dode offers photo opportunities simply not found in other venues. Our photographer has many years of experience working here to produce stunning and memorable images of your perfect day.


Flowers form an important part of every wedding, here at Dode your ceremony is framed by two superb arrangements (lit and set off by natural flames) designed to enhance the breathtaking backdrop; in colours chosen by the bride.


Included in our package is a two course meal. A choice of 3 very different and delicious menus is available and vegetarian options can be catered for, all served in the splendour of our 900 year old building.
