About

On WeddingWire since 2012

Originally built in 1929, the Woman's Club of Portsmouth is a stunning and classic wedding venue in the heart of Southeastern Virginia. Vaulted ceilings, original hardwood floors, and an abundance of natural light are just a few things that draw couples seeking an intimate, yet charming wedding, to the Woman's Club of Portsmouth.

The main ballroom, which can host up to 250 guests, can be used for both your ceremony and reception. For those hoping for an outdoor ceremony, there is a large outdoor deck with a pergola, that is surrounded by well maintained grounds and mature shrubs that give you a private and serene location to say "I do ". The covered front porch is equipped with lighting, fans, and a gas fireplace, making it the perfect place for cocktail hour during any season.

Proceeds from the Woman's Club of Portsmouth are used by the Portsmouth Service League to serve and give back to the Hampton Roads Community.

Beautiful Venue

The Woman's Club of Portsmouth is gorgeous! It was the most beautiful venue for my daughter's wedding. Beautiful architecture and lovely setup for a ceremony and a flip for the reception. Chrissy at the Woman's Club is so attentive and responsive and we could not have been happier with our choice.

Stunning Wedding Venue !!

The most beautiful venue!
Perfect location and staff!
The inside is massive and stunning, I had planned for my ceremony to be on the back deck the week of we had to pivot and move the ceremony inside and Chrissy was so helpful getting me connected to the best most affordable vendors to make it happen!
It was the most perfect day I cannot thank them enough!

Perfect venue, wonderful support!

The Woman's Club of Portsmouth was absolutely the perfect venue for our December wedding! The possibilities are endless in such a gorgeous space; I originally wanted to add tons of drapery and approximately 2 million more flowers before I was reminded by my now-husband that we did indeed have a budget... but ultimately, we didn't even NEED any of that extra stuff. The new floors and glittering chandeliers are so lovely that even very understated decor looks glamorous! We loved the ease and convenience of having our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception in one space, and our guests were very pleased with that aspect as well. In addition to the space itself, working with Chrissy was such a joy!! She was so fun and easy to communicate with, and went FAR above and beyond for us MULTIPLE times in the year/month/week leading up to our wedding day. We are so appreciative and cannot reccomend this venue and its staff highly enough! The one cautionary note I would leave for prospective clients is to remind your guests (multiple times) to try to arrive earlier than they think they need to if they are planning on utilizing the complimentary valet parking!! As the venue does not have guest parking directly on site, it can take some time to get everybody in the building, and I wish I had sent another 3-4 reminders to my guests. But that being said, it worked out just fine and I wouldn't even call that a downside or negative at all, considering we understood this from the start, and all of the other amazing attributes of this venue and kindness of the staff!! Our wedding day was literally perfect, and we can't imagine having had it anywhere else. Thank you so much to Chrissy and everybody at WCP that helped make our day so wonderful!!!

This venue is as classic and gorgeous as they come! The light stream in even when it is gloomy out. There is enough room to have a gorgeous outdoor space, but in case it does rain the indoor is easy to transform and still just as beautiful for a ceremony. As a photographer I enjoy this venue because of the light and how clean and simple it is! The staff are very careful to keep the flow going and some of the best pros in the industry have worked here! I highly recommend my couples this venue!

The Woman's Club of Portsmouth is a bit of a hidden gem in the area. It's a beautiful and versatile venue that I highly recommend. There's a sizable indoor hall, large front porch, and a nice back deck as well. I've worked there a few times recently, and each wedding has been beautiful. The neutral decor offers a blank slate to build your vision, plus you'll have the flexibility to use the caterer of your choice. Many brides choose to have the ceremony indoors, then an outdoor cocktail hour while the room is transformed for the reception. Check them out soon. I've heard more than one clients say they book up fast!
