During May of 2023, I had the pleasure of photographing Helen & Dave’s wedding day at the stunning Dodmoor house, located in Northamptonshire.
I've had the incredible opportunity to capture some amazing weddings at this fantastic wedding venue multiple times. And guess what? I'm even on their recommended suppliers list, which is like hitting the jackpot! Let me tell you, this place is quickly becoming my ultimate favourite when it comes to Northamptonshire's barn wedding venues.
Why, you ask? Well, first of all, it's drop-dead gorgeous, overflowing with charm and personality. And secondly, the staff there knows how to treat the lovebirds and their guests like royalty. Seriously, if you're scouting for a barn-style wedding venue in Northamptonshire, you better make Dodmoor House your first stop. Trust me, it's a guaranteed wow-factor experience!
Now, let's dive into the incredible story of Helen and Dave. Before their big day, I had an absolute blast chatting with them at their place, going through all the nitty-gritty details of their wedding timeline. Let me tell you, their wedding was destined to be something truly magical. Helen and Dave are the kind of couple you instantly click with—they're laid-back and super chill, and all they wanted was a stress-free, relaxed celebration.
Fast forward to the big day, and I'm heading back to Dodmoor House. The weather was absolutely perfect, and boy, oh boy, the guests were beaming from ear to ear as they headed into Dodmoor House's courtyard area for a sneaky pre-wedding sip. Even Dave couldn't contain his excitement and arrived early, glowing with happiness. Meanwhile, Helen was getting ready up in the honeymoon suite, but she preferred not to have those moments captured, giving me the perfect opportunity to focus all my energy on capturing the entrance of every single guest. As a wedding photographer for Northamptonshire, it's great to have such an amazing wedding venue on my doorstep.
Helen and her bridesmaids radiated beauty as they gracefully made their way down the aisle. The ceremony was a heartwarming affair, adorned with two captivating readings that added a touch of charm. Following the exchange of vows, the celebration continued outside, where guests indulged in refreshing drinks, tasty canapes, and lawn games. The delightful sight of both adults and children joining in the games, fueled by a healthy dose of friendly competition, brought endless smiles and joy to every corner. As a photographer, I eagerly captured these moments of pure happiness.
Once the essential family portraits and intimate couple shots were taken, everyone gathered inside the elegant Catesby Barn. This charming venue served as the backdrop for the wedding breakfast, speeches, and evening reception. The atmosphere was truly enchanting as Helen surprised everyone by delivering a heartfelt speech, expressing her deep admiration for her new husband and making the occasion even more extraordinary. Dave, the groom, also delighted the crowd with his brilliant speech, infused with his witty sense of humour, leaving everyone in stitches.
The entire day was a testament to the joyous union of Helen and Dave, filled with unforgettable memories and heartwarming moments. As a photographer privileged to witness their special day, I aimed to capture every smile, laugh, and treasured instant, ensuring that these precious memories would be cherished for years to come.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Helen, Dave, and all of the guests for making me feel so welcome throughout the day. To the team at Dodmoor House, I look forward to seeing you all again very soon.
