I would give this venue 10-stars if I could!!! There is no other establishment where you will receive as OUTSTANDING of an experience for your wedding day, other than Wentworth by the Sea! The staff is beyond EXCEPTIONAL! Every single member of their team makes you, your family and friends feel welcome and relaxed, each hour of your stay! Ask for Laura, who is in charge of it all, and she will make sure your special day is nothing short of PERFECTION! She is the most wonderful, professional and helpful person you will ever come across to help you plan the most important day of your life! I was so IMPRESSED with Wentworth by the Sea, that in the future, I will have every memorable event at this hotel, whether it be an anniversary, a weekend away, a birthday... they had that big of a memorable impact on myself and my fiancé! Look no further, this is the ONLY place to celebrate your wedding!Sent on 06/11/2019

1/1/21 Wentworth Wedding Weekend
Laura and her team are incredible! Planning a wedding during a pandemic is hard but Laura was honest, transparent, and understanding of the difficult situation. They helped us navigate a safe and intimate wedding for our closest friends and family. It was truly a perfect day and I'm so grateful for the Wentworth team! The recommended vendors including Jardiniere Flowers, C-Zone Entertainment, Jacques Pastries, and Portsmouth Invitation Company were all a pleasure to work with and it was really helpful that they had worked with the Wentworth team for past events. Some vendors had also collaborated with the office staff at the church and it felt like they came together as a unified team to take care of every detail allowing me to feel at ease on my wedding day.
We did have out of town guests and family members who were not comfortable with traveling during the peak of the Covid pandemic in January (we got married on 1/1/21), but we are already planning on a reunion at the Wentworth when it's safe so that everyone is able to enjoy spending time together at this beautiful venue. It would be a treat to work with Laura and her team again in the future!Sent on 02/08/2021

Amazing Venue and Staff!
Beautiful, elegant, timeless - and that's just the exterior of Wentworth by the Sea, A Marriott Hotel and Spa! Our wedding was truly a bright light amidst a rough 2020. Wentworth by the Sea, especially Director of Catering, Laura Abraham Long, took incredible care of us and our guests. I absolutely recommend WbtS as your wedding venue - in or out of a Pandemic. We began planning our wedding in August 2019 and were provided with great care and transparent information regarding services and pricing. In Nov. 2019 Laura invited us to attend a fabulous tasting party at WbtS where we could experience the Wentworth Ballroom decked out in a glamorous state, meet an array of vendors, and taste WbtS's fantastic food. Our wedding was to be in late June of 2020. As the east coast shut down due to covid19, we had to make the overwhelming decision to wait it out or postpone our wedding. Laura was transparent and thoughtful in helping us reschedule our wedding, and the venue was incredibly generous in working with us to adapt our contract from 200 guests down to 58 guests. There were many new rules for guest and staff safety that could have made our reception feel awkward - but in fact, WbtS went above and beyond to make us and our guests feel safe, happy, and (almost) normal! Our wedding took place on Oct. 24, 2020 and it was the day of our dreams. Even all masked up you could tell that every guest was grinning! The food was fantastic (we're still hearing from guests on how great their meals were), we were able to have a socially distant dance floor, a (masked up) band, and we danced all night! It was absolutely a party and my husband and I feel so fulfilled. (And PS - guests quarantined and were tested before arriving to the hotel, and everyone was very serious about wearing their masks and practicing social distancing during the wedding festivities.)Sent on 01/24/2021
