Dodmoor House Northamptonshire Wedding

On Saturday 30th April we had the pleasure of playing for the wedding of Kathryn and Nic at one of the best wedding venues in the country  – Dodmoor House.

This amazing venue has just won the National Wedding Awards 2016 “Wedding Venue of the Year (Countryside)” Congratulations to each and every member of the team who work so hard to make sure all their couples have the wedding they dream of!

Dodmoor House is an exclusive use venue in the heart of Northamptonshire. We are very proud to be their recommended professional string quartet. From the moment couples book Dodmoor as their wedding venue, they are treated to the most amazing service. All the team members are caring, friendly and professional and attention to detail is second to none. Nothing is ever too much trouble and everything is done with a smile!

This wedding has to be one of our favourites so far – we were booked to play for the Kathryn and Nic’s ceremony, drinks reception and also their wedding breakfast (afternoon tea!)

Real weddings – Dodmoor House

On 3rd October 2015 Ariella String Trio had the pleasure of playing for the wedding of Nicky and Lee at one of our favourite wedding venues, Dodmoor House.

We are very privileged to be one of the recommended suppliers for Dodmoor House – we know the staff and venue very well and can’t recommend them highly enough!

Although it was Autumn we were lucky with the weather and it wasn’t too cold! All the guests were able to enjoy their drinks outside and we had lots of requests for pop and rock, especially Metallica!!!

Our Bride and Groom, Nicky and Lee, were absolutely lovely – a real pleasure to work with and they had chosen some fab music! Their guests thought it was amazing that we were playing all sorts of pop and rock music!

Here are some photos I took of the wedding – some lovely work from the wedding suppliers the couple had chosen. We are really lucky to get to see the finished results of each of our couples’ months of planning!

The beautiful cake was created by Shelly from “La Belle Cake Company” who we have had the pleasure of working with many times!

Venue dressing was by Gems Celebrations – Wedding and Event Hire. We work with this company often and I am always blown away by how they transform venues! Totally professional, this company is no.1 on our recommended list!

 

I must admit to being a little biased about this as purple is my FAVOURITE colour!!

The flowers were beautifully arranged by “By Arrangement Floristry” 

The photographer was Rob Lunan of Welcome Photography  – lovely to finally meet him!

We were very well looked after by Delicious Catering a company we had never worked with before but our sarnies were LOVELY!! Thank you!

Of course, no wedding is ever complete at Dodmoor without the lovely Geoffrey who loves us to fuss her! She is a great favourite especially with the children at weddings!

Sometimes, at weddings and events, we get to see some really unusual sights! Thought I would share this lady’s handbag with you! I have a friend who loves PUGS so I took this photo for her! Hope you enjoy!!

 

Until next time…………………!!
