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.

    9/19/21 Woman’s club of Portsmouth

    This venue is absolutely stunning!! It has everything you need and it’s beauty alone requires minimal decor. We were able to have a beautiful ceremony outside and a reception inside that was incredible. We were even able to have pictures on the water during sunset that turned out beautiful. Super easy to work with the staff and they made sure all of my questions were answered promptly!

    Stunning venue

    WCoP is one of the most stunning, yet hidden, venues in the Hampton Roads area. It was initially our first choice venue, but didn't have our date available. Then came COVID. We had to move our date, and when our original venue couldn't support, we immediately wanted to book back at WCoP.

    They were absolutely amazing to work with. It was a tough time as restrictions and capacity limits were changing, as well as CDC guidance, but WCoP was very transparent through it all and the absolute best to work with in the end. We had the venue the whole day, were able to drop things off early, and our vendors had plenty of time to set up.

    The bridal suite is gorgeous, there is plenty of room for big wedding parties to hang out all day prior to the ceremony. We opted to hold the ceremony indoors, cocktail hour on the front porch, and then the reception inside once the space was flipped. It was a dream setting. Our pictures in the garden area out back are absolutely stunning and amazing.

    The price for this venue was cheaper than a lot of other places we looked, but the quality is far greater. We would book this venue again in a heartbeat if we had to do it all over again.

    Thanks so much for making our dream day happen!

    Beautiful venue

    After attending 3 weddings here, I knew I had to have MY wedding at this venue. Every aspect of this venue is beautiful, from the indoor ballroom to the outside decks. There are many ceremony locations available. We personally chose to have our ceremony indoors in the ballroom and have the room flipped for the reception. We had our cocktail hour on the back deck where guests enjoyed appetizers, drinks, and played corn hole! The bridal suite was perfect and very accommodating for getting a large bridal party ready the morning of the wedding. Overall wonderful experience!

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!
