Perfect New England wedding venue

Getting married at Castle in the Clouds was the perfect setting for our big day on 10/22/22. We had the most beautiful fall day & I was so pleased with how far my budget went at the castle, the open bar pricing is hard to beat & the catering options were so reasonable. The venue has so much character we barely had to decorate & the food from great events catering was excellent. Our guests loved seeing different parts of the property & we鈥檙e so happy to have this special place to visit for years to come.

It鈥檚 worth noting that the events team at the castle is tiny for the volume of weddings they hold. We appreciated all they were able to do for us & could see how hard they work to make sure their couples are well taken care of. This is not a team that has the capacity to respond in real time throughout your planning process & the limitations of their services were clearly disclosed in our inquiry process & outlined in our contract. We hired a day of event manager to help with all the vendor coordination & day of details in the final months leading up to our wedding & we all had a great experience working with Jessica & the events team during our wedding week. Thank you Jessica, Patti, and the entire castle team!

Wedding Venue with Breathtaking Views

We had our wedding at the Castle in the Clouds and loved it. The wedding views from this venue (which are on top of a mountain and overlook Lake Winnipesaukee and the other mountain ranges) were absolutely beautiful. The wedding vows are said on the very top of the mountain and the guests are transported up by trolleys (which they loved), and the cocktail hour is outside a little lower down on the mountain with breathtaking views, and the reception is inside a beautiful space. Jess, the coordinator there, was wonderful to work with and answered all of our questions and helped the day run smoothly. We would absolutely recommend Castle in the Clouds for a unique and picturesque wedding venue.

Castle in the Clouds is a wonderful place to have a wedding. The views, the grounds, and the venue buildings are perfect. The staff is accommodating and extremely professional.

Castle in the Clouds is a beautiful and historic location! The views are breathtaking and the entire estate is radiating with romance. The staff is gracious and friendly across the board. This place is like New Hampshire's own mini Downton Abbey. I enjoy the opportunity to play may guitar here when I can to create a romantic or 1920s mood. Can't say enough about the wedding planner Jessica and her staff. Professional & creative.

Castle in the Clouds is one of my favorite venues for performing ceremonies. The setting is stunning and the Wedding team is outstanding. We have an excellent working relationship that is collaborative and truly client-centered. At Castle in the Clouds I am able to fulfill my promise to my clients that I will create a wholly original ceremony that lives up to their vision and wishes.
