    Vendor Perspective: Dream Venue!

    As a wedding planner, I work with venues all over New England who vary in price, aesthetic and rental offerings. I can truly say that Connemara House Farm is one of my top venues to work at in the North Shore area! Not only is the location stunning, but it is convenient to Boston & Newburyport for guest accommodations/weekend activities, and the staff is beyond accommodating. I thought it would be helpful to provide a vendor point of view, as myself and fellow vendors (Caterer, Florist, DJ, etc.) cannot stop talking about how easy it is to work at this space. Deborah and her team have thought of every part of the day; from an onsite restroom trailer, catering tent, gorgeous sailcloth reception tent, tables & chairs, lighting and beautifully landscaped grounds, your planning process will be a breeze and your guests will have an amazing experience! HIGHLY recommend!!

    Perfect Day

    We recently had our wedding at the Connemara House Farm and could not rate this place higher.
    The venue is stunning from the high quality sperry tent to the apple trees to the dance floor, not to mention the wonderfully accommodating staff. After the pandemic canceled our first wedding, we were struggling to find a new venue while salvaging what we could from the first plan. Deborah was amazing from start to finish. She took the time to answer every question thoroughly, assured us with every decision and quickly became someone we could trust despite all the uncertainty of last year. Our wedding went off without a hitch! Our guests raved about the venue, land , bridal/groom suites and yard games. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to get married at Connemara House Farm!

    Amazing experience at Connemara!

    We had the most amazing experience having our wedding at Connemara! Due to Covid guidelines changing, we had to change our venue 3 times and finally with the help of our wedding planner we found Connemara only a month or so before our actual date! It was completely perfect and they went above and beyond to make sure our wedding could happen even under a tight time crunch. They even put up the tent a month early to accommodate us. We ended up having a crazy weather day (it snowed the day before our wedding), meaning we had to move our ceremony around within the venue. The staff at Connemara was super accommodating and took care of everything so we had no stress at all. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and the tent is a perfect size too. Having access to the house for the bridal party was so convenient and the bridal suite is a perfect place to take portrait photos. We really loved everything about our experience at Connemara - I think that it is totally a hidden gem right now but with how amazing the grounds and staff are I am sure it will book fast! Thanks Deb and the entire staff for making our wedding stress-free and amazing!
