    Everything we hoped for and more

    When our wedding planning started back in 2018 we had the pleasure of working with Pam to plan for our Aug 2020 wedding. She was wonderful to work with. We live in California (I'm originally from CT). I would say that planning a wedding from cross country was a challenge, but honestly we were so blessed to have the most incredible vendors and venue to work with that made our experience so easy. From answering all questions we had (no matter how insignificant they may have seemed), to being very understanding in allowing us to postpone our wedding to Aug of 2021, Wickham was incredibly supportive every step of the way. We spent the last months leading up to the wedding working with Sarah who is the new event coordinator at Wickham. To say she is INCREDIBLE at her job would be an understatement. My advice to you is to take her advice in what she recommends, because she knows what she's talking about. We simply cannot put into words how grateful we were to have had such support behind our LGBTQ+ cabin wedding. It was stunning in every way. Also want to shout out to Dave who was the day of coordinator there for our event. He was wonderful! Thank you so so very much for all of your help in making our dream day come true.

    Wonderful, even through tough times.

    We got married at Wickham Park twice... kind of. Like so many couples, our plans to have our ceremony and reception at the park in 2020 did not go as planned. The park worked with us to allow us to split our day in half- we held our ceremony in Sept of 2020 and held our reception last month (both at the park).
    Sarah come on to the scene between the ceremony and reception. She was absolutely wonderful to work with and went above and beyond for us when we had a crises during our reception. She literally saved the day!
    The park was beautiful as always and our guests had a great time. 10/10, would get married there a 3rd time (kidding, but the park was great).

Pamela and the staff at Wickham Park have been nothing short of fabulous for every event we have had the pleasure to have served there for many years now. They are always responsive to any question or request, whether it be from us directly or from the clients we have served there. There is never a difference in service between pavilion outings or Cabin weddings, and a staff member is always around to make sure every event goes as planned, and they treat them all as if they are the only one they are hosting that day. We strongly recommend Wickham Park for your next event, and look forward to providing our services there for many years to come.

A great venue that has the advantage of both an outside and inside feel while being sheltered from the weather. It's definitely the best of both worlds. Beautiful park setting run by professionals. We love working here!
