    A magical day in the gardens

    When my husband and I got engaged and started planning our wedding in my hometown, I knew I had to return to Strawbery Banke. A frequent attendee of the museum as a child, and a roleplayer throughout my teens, I have always felt at home on the museum grounds. Because it was the first house I worked in, and because I knew how well-maintained they were, we booked the Goodwin Gardens for our wedding ceremony, which happened to fall on the same weekend as the fairy house tours.
    There was definitely something in the air that day, and around every tree stump in the surrounding area! We had unseasonably warm weather, clear skies, flowers still very much in bloom, and all the materials to pull together a thoughtful and intimate ceremony space.
    Before the wedding, communicating with Wendy was fun and easy, and she was always available for questions or concerns. We were able to visit the space a few months out to iron out details, and run a rehearsal the day before. On the day of, Wendy was there the whole time making sure we had everything we needed, and that the space was set up perfectly. We were also allowed to meet our photographer and get ready in Stoodley's Tavern (across the street), which was crucial!
    I will always hold a special place for Strawbery Banke in my heart for many reasons, the latest of which is how our wedding came together in the most beautiful day with the help of Wendy and the museum staff.

    Awesome Spot!

    We recently got married at Strawbery Banke outside in the garden in the middle of winter. The event coordinator, Wendy, was excellent to work with & she went above & beyond to accommodate our off-season wedding. I’d truly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a spot in downtown Portsmouth to host a ceremony. It was affordable & customer service was awesome!
