Bishop Farm - A real NH gem!
I love working with Kayla and Sean at Bishop Farm. We went to tour the venue and the moment we arrived, my fiance and I felt so comfortable and carefree during our entire tour. At the end, we both left thinking we would love to be friends with Kayla and Sean after the wedding! Kayla is super responsive with her communication. She's given me advice, recommendations, and the ability to bounce ideas off of her. We've just about hit the one year mark for when our wedding will be and I've been so happy with Bishop Farm so far, I am excited for the rest of the planning up until our wedding date! I recommend Bishop Farm to friends, family, and even strangers I hear talking about rustic/barn weddings ;)Sent on 09/06/2019
Bishop Farm's reply:Thank you so much for your review. We appreciate all of the kind words and support. You both are amazing and the beautiful wedding you planned was one for the books. We just love you both so much and we are happy to have you both in our family. We thank you for choosing Bishop Farm to begin your adventure together. We wish you both all the love in the world.

Leave the Stress Behind, They Got This
Bishop Farm will be the topic of conversation for a long time to come. Heather and Annie went way above and beyond to make sure everything was in place and ready to go along with making sure the night ran smoothly. There were times where I found myself with nothing to do to get ready for my own wedding as it was taken care of by all the amazing staff at Bishop Farm. Every single guest had the best to say about their experiences with Bishop Farm this weekend as well.Sent on 10/21/2018
Bishop Farm's reply:Wow, you are so sweet to give us a review Katie! Thank you so much for your kind words. We are so thankful you decided on Bishop Farm for your wedding. You, Kenny and your families were all so much fun! Ha, we are still smiling and cracking up at all the awesome dancing ;-) Sending you big hugs, Have a blast in Greece!

Our Daughter's Dream Wedding at Bishop Farm
We can't thank Heather enough for her support and guidance through the entire wedding planning process. She promptly responded to all our questions with patient expertise. Her recommended vendors were all fabulous. From the moment our bridal party arrived at Bishop Farm, she, Annie and Maggie welcomed us in and made us feel like family. They truly went above and beyond the entire weekend to make sure our daughter and her husband were able to celebrate the wedding of their dreams. They worked with us side by side to create a celebration that was truly reflective of our bride and groom. Their personal warmth combined with utmost competence allowed us the parents of the bride, as well as our bride and groom, to enjoy our wedding weekend to the fullest. We could not have hoped for a better wedding venue or wedding experience than Bishop Farm.Sent on 11/18/2018
Bishop Farm's reply:Bridget, you are so darn sweet, thank you so much for your kind words. You all were such a blast! You all did everything 100%, great energy, good fun and kind hearts! Love to you all, have a wonderful holiday season from all of us here at Bishop Farm!

Maureen · Married on 09/28/2018
Simply stated WONDERFUL! The day (and weekend) couldn’t have been more PERFECT. The ladies at Bishop Farm, Annie, Heather and Maggie, are friendly, professional and very responsive to every question and request - starting from the day we reserved the farm for the wedding throughout the entire planning and THE day. We used many local vendors who were all GREAT - their product and easy to work with. We would recommend Bishop Farm for anyone who wants to have a beautiful, memorable day. It was also really nice having the entire wedding party and family stay in the Inn and cottages ☺️Sent on 10/04/2018
Bishop Farm's reply:So much fun with you all! You are a great wedding coordinator Moe! :-) Thank you so much for your kind words. They mean so much to all of us at Bishop Farm! Please do not be a stranger. Sending big hugs!

Bishop Farm is a dream come true- we will always cherish this special venue and the Salter family. From the moment we stepped foot on the property during our tour, Heather and Annie made us feel like part of their family. That coupled with the fact that the property was just breathtakingly beautiful sealed the deal for us. Our wedding weekend was perfect thanks for Heather, Annie, Maggie and Dan. They made our guests feel welcome and they kept they were there every step of the way to make sure everything about the wedding and weekend was perfect. We truly felt at home all weekend long - from the delicious homemade breakfast to the campfires at night, every moment was unforgettable. Our wedding ran so smoothly and our guests are still gushing a month later about how incredible the staff were and how gorgeous the venue was. Marc and I cannot thank you enough, Bishop Farm- you made our special day more perfect than we could have ever imagined!Sent on 10/19/2018
Bishop Farm's reply:LOVE LOVE LOVE your wedding, you did such an amazing job with all your creative ideas. You and Marc were so fun to get to know. We thank you for choosing Bishop Farm! I still can't get over these amazing shots, I love Marc's face on the entrance into the barn, ha! Priceless! Sending you both big hugs from the Salters!
Tarah · Married on 09/15/2018
The moment we stepped onto the Bishop Farm Venue we knew it was where we wanted to get married and we are so beyond happy with our decision. Heather, Annie, Maggie and the rest of the crew made the planning process so smooth and stress free. Our wedding day was more than we could have everask for and all our guest said it was the best wedding they have ever been to!Sent on 09/26/2018
Bishop Farm's reply:Dear pretty Tarah, thank you so much for your kind words! You were so fun to plan with and we loved every minute of your wedding, such a beautiful person inside and out. Rocking out to Hotmess was a blast! You did a great job picking your vendors. We can't thank you enough for choosing Bishop Farm! Sending a big hug, Heather

Bishop Farm far exceeded my expectations for my daughters wedding. The Salter family organized every little detail and everything went very smoothly. It was the most beautiful venue! Worth every penny we spent!Sent on 09/07/2018
Bishop Farm's reply:Hi Karen, Thank you so much for your kind words, we loved every minute of your wedding weekend. You all were like family! Please keep in touch, I will do the same. Cheers, Heather, Maggie & Annie
Andrea · Married on 09/01/2018
First of all, the venue is so unique and beautiful. We were sold immediately on the beautiful renovated barn for the ceremony. The elements of light coming through the old barnwood, the colored glass, and the pews are just breathtaking. Plus, we knew we didn't want a first look so having the barn door entrance was perfect. But then when we saw the beautiful touches in the reception barn- the chandeliers, the vintage couches, the bar, the walls, bathrooms, etc. and then we were offered a beer on our tour- it REALLY was a done deal.Sent on 09/08/2018
Another important thing for our wedding was having the place to ourselves for an entire weekend. We were able to have a mix of our families stay on the property like our own private compound for the weekend. We had a wiffleball game, coffee out on the lawn, the kids could run and chase bugs or the poor chicken even though we told them not to (sorry Salter's!!!). It really helped set the tone for our festivities all weekend with fun and love surrounding us at all times.
We are all the way in Baltimore - with my wonderful mother taking the reigns in New Hampshire- but Heather and Annie helped us stay on course before, leading up to, and during the wedding. They helped create and execute our itinerary perfectly while having fun with everyone. They become one with your family and friends which is rare and special.
We booked this place off of our tour and reading all these recommendations (which are so true!), and you should, too!
Bishop Farm's reply:Awww thank you Andrea! You are such a wonderfully authentic person. We love that you chose Bishop Farm for your wedding. I mean you had to, with the whole Packer connection lol! Love you all, we hope to go to a packer game with you someday! <3 Hugs, Heather
Shannon · Married on 08/18/2018
We booked Bishop Farm as our wedding venue (2+ years in advance) because once we stepped on to the farm, we couldn’t imagine celebrating our forever love anywhere else. Even on a rainy day, the landscape, the views, the barns, etc... it all blew our minds. Annie and Heather made us feel so confident with our decision right away as they took the time to discuss details with us and look through pictures from their recommended vendors. As our wedding date was approaching, Annie and Heather reached out regularly to discuss our timeline and ensure that this day would be everything we wanted it to be. They made it too easy. Fast forward to our “wedding weekend” and we were welcomed at the farm with open arms. The farm looked even better than I had remembered! Annie and Heather hosted our friends and family for four days, and we all felt so at-home. We decided to have our rehearsal dinner at the farm (because why would we ever leave?!) and thanks to Annie, Heather, and Maggie, the night went perfectly which set us up for a great wedding day morning! Breakfast on the farm is the best - even the girls working at the local salon had heard about Maggie’s famous breakfast. Our friends and family got to spend the day relaxing on the farm while Annie and Heather took care of every detail. Nothing was missed. All of our vendors expressed how lovely it is to work with Annie and Heather. They are true professionals, and absolute masters at creating the perfect wedding.Sent on 08/21/2018
Bishop Farm's reply:Oh, Shannon, you are so darn sweet! Thank you for the sweet review. We just love you, Martin, your family and little Duffy. What fun we all had, playing bananagrams with your Dad was one of many highlights! We feel so honored you had your wedding with us at Bishop Farm. Keep loving all your puppies, you are so good! Ok Send pix ;-) Big hugs, Heather

The most amazing venue. The team at Bishop Farm is dedicated to making your day magical. We love! Love! Loved it. Best decision ever.Sent on 08/27/2018
Bishop Farm's reply:Thank you, Jessica, what a special weekend we had with you. The weekend was so filled with love and support. You two are a sweet couple and yes, it was enhanced by the situation but the commitment you two share was so strong, something to admire. Thank you for your sweet words, so kind of you. Please tell your parents we all say hello!
Lauren · Married on 07/28/2018
The Salter family is simply amazing! So kind, sweet, friendly, and treated all of us like family. True experts at coordinating the wedding weekend at Bishop Farm, directing the vendors, and keeping to the timeline. They helped us so much to make sure everything went smoothly and we didn't have to think about anything, they were already taking care of it! We didn't feel the need (and turns out we were right) to hire a coordinator because the Salter's handle everything on the wedding weekend. They were so on top of it all. They recommended great vendors, most of the ones we booked were from their favorites. They really have thought of every detail and it is so calming! Planning our wedding was so much fun and they were available any time to answer our many questions. All of our friends & family & vendors had nothing but wonderful things to say about the Salter's and Bishop Farm. It is truly a magical place, and the website/photos do not even capture the true beauty when you see it in person. We fell in love with the ceremony barn dressed up like a church with pews and stained glass. It was just gorgeous and we dreamt about that barn door opening moment for a year before it finally happened. We loved that our family and wedding party could stay at the farm all weekend, and we all had a great time relaxing and celebrating. It was also convenient that they have a "wedding pantry" FULL to the brim of any kind of wedding/rustic decoration you could think of (jars, candle votives, all of the signs, table numbers, frames, baskets...you name it)! We didn't have to buy anything for our wedding because they had it all there to borrow. We donated our left over terra cotta pots to the pantry :) The farmhouse and cottages are adorable, and the fire pits so fun! I want to live there it's so beautiful. When the weekend ended and all our family had left, we spent another hour or so saying goodbye to Heather, Annie & Maggie and chatting...we just didn't want to leave!Sent on 08/23/2018
Bishop Farm's reply:Thank you dear Lauren! You are a great writer, wow so nice of you to take the time and write such sweet words. You and Dan were such a joy to prep with and spend the fun weekend with, you both have such sweet souls. Thank you for choosing Bishop Farm, I love the watching your video... which I've watched multiple times! Sending big hugs! Keep in touch.

Fairytale in the Mountains of New Hampshire
Where to start. When we first walked into the barn, we instantly fell in love. Over the course of the 3 days that we were there, we we were overwhelmed with how we felt at home by the hospitality and feeling like everything we needed was taken care of. The wedding party staying all together, made the experience more like a vacation rather than what could be stressful celebration. We couldn’t of asked for a more magical venue to make our dreams dreams come true for our special day.Sent on 05/03/2019

It was like we were all one big family, the hospitality was better then I’ve ever experienced!
I wouldn’t change a thing about our wedding weekend at Bishop Farms.
I would recommend all couples to go tour they will fall in love with all they offer.
I can’t thank them enough, they were incredible,they work so hard and are masters at what they do. :-)
People ask me what would you recommend for brides to do after your wedding I say “get married at Bishop farms” :-)
Peggie · Married on 06/30/2018
A Pinterest search of New England barn weddings led our daughter & son-in-law on a wedding journey they thought could only exist in their dreams. Soon after their engagement, our daughter Kim asked us to travel from Long Island, all the way to the White Mountains of NH to visit a place she fell in love with on Pinterest. We ventured through the mountains and into tiny Lisbon where we were welcomed at Bishop Farm by Heather, Annie and Maggie. It wasn’t long before we were touring the venue and feeling right at home! We were sold...on the place, & more importantly, the hosts! The rustic elegance of the ceremony and reception barns...the stained glass windows between which they would exchange vows, the expansive lawn, mini game room, featuring skee-ball & table soccer, bridal suite, cottages and quaint inn all drew us in. We knew this would be the perfect venue for Kim and Bobby's wedding. It proved to be just that!! From the moment we arrived prior to the wedding to check out, we felt like we were right at home. Heather, Annie and Maggie were accommodating, providing guidance, and orchestrating all preparations to ensure an amazing celebration before, during and after! They worked tirelessly to make sure that every detail was checked & double checked to keep us all on schedule. Event planning is in their blood! They were ALWAYS available, willing & able to meet our needs without hesitation. Even our guests got to know them as they are always visible & engaging! It was hard to believe that the venue could be more beautiful than when we toured last August...but with the addition of flowers and lighting, it was an even more magical place. The ceremony barn, filled with family and friends, an intimate space lit with late afternoon light cast the most beautiful glow on the bride & groom. The expansive lawn served to provide places to gather, play corn hole, swing, or just socialize. We & our guests will forever treasure the wedding memories we made at Bishop Farm!Sent on 07/08/2018
Bishop Farm's reply:Thank you so much Peggie for the kind words! We had such a blast with you all! Loved the army of friends and family that came to help. It shows how special you all are. Loved getting to know you and spending this special weekend of Kim and Bobby's wedding with you and David.
Linda · Married on 06/02/2018
When my engaged step-daughter first announced her plans for a "destination wedding" more than two hours from home, I was initially dismayed. Mostly because she had also asked me to do the dessert table at the reception and traveling with baked goods can be a daunting task! How glad I am now that she followed her instincts and chose the Bishop Farm!
From our arrival the day before the wedding until our departure the day after the wedding, our stay at the farm was nothing short of delightful! The grounds were beautifully maintained and the buildings were filled with incredible antique finds from across the country and displayed in a perfect 'shabby chic' way. That being said, I must emphasize that what makes this place truly amazing is the owners: Heather, Annie, Dan, their Mom, Martha and their niece, Maggie. They were unbelievable! First of all, they remembered everyone's names after only being introduced once (and we were a big wedding party). Second, they bent over backwards to make sure everyone had everything they needed to make this wedding perfect. As I mentioned previously, I was in charge of the dessert table and still had some last minute prep work to do on the day of the wedding. The kitchen area was graciously handed over to me as soon as breakfast was done and I was allowed to take over the whole space with Martha there to provide me with bowls, utensils...whatever I needed that I hadn't thought to bring from home! I ended up feeling more like family than a guest at their venue! The wedding itself was perfect and went off without a hitch, mostly because of the attention to detail that the Salter family provides. Everyone who attended was impressed with the venue and the quality of service. Some of us stayed in the rooms in the main house and I have to say it was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in away from home! A very nice breakfast was provided for us each morning and the true star of that meal is Martha's quiche...incredible!!Sent on 06/11/2018
Bishop Farm's reply:Hello Linda, thank you so much for your kind words and taking the time to write! So sweet. We had so much fun with you all and appreciate you making the trip to Bishop Farm for this special weekend! Sending big hugs! <3
Lauren · Married on 05/26/2018
"Above and beyond" does not even begin to describe the Salter family and Bishop Farm. From the moment we booked the venue, they constantly reached out to ask questions, provide input, and give us any and all support we might need. This was especially helpful as my husband and I were planning from across the country; we never once felt panicked or stressed because the planning was in such good hands. They thought of everything --- details I would never have even considered --- and it truly showed. We had our dream wedding and it could not have happened without Annie, Heather, Maggie, Danny, Martha :), and all of the other team members who put it all together. Don't even get me started on the "Pinterest Barn", which has every decoration/detail you could imagine! We spent Thursday to Monday at the farm, taking a day after our wedding to relax and take in the gorgeous setting. The family even helped us coordinate transportation home, dropping us off in Littleton!
I cannot say enough about this venue, because it is so much more than a venue. It was an unbelievable experience, start to finish, and we have been reliving it ever since. I would highly recommend Bishop Farm to anyone.Sent on 05/31/2018
Bishop Farm's reply:OMG where is my "crying emoji" You two are so sweet! What a way to start off our season, you made it easy.

Sending big hugs back to you in LA!

Words can't even explain how truly magical this place is. This venue is a piece of heaven with rustic charm and elegance, but such a laid back atmosphere at the same time. This was the first and only venue we looked at. The grounds are like something out of a post card and the ceremony/reception barn will leave you speechless. From the moment we booked the Salter family made us feel like we were part of their family. Heather, Annie, Maggie and Dan were all so amazing from the moment we arrived to the goodbye tears as we were leaving. The farm has 6 cottages that lead to an amazing fire pit surrounded with bench swings. That's not all! The farmhouse/B&B has 7 rooms and so many common areas so you and your family/bridal party can enjoy the entire weekend together! Everything was very easy once we booked. They have so many great recommended vendors and a timeline to go by that made our planning so easy and stress free. It honestly felt like we had known all of our vendors for years! Everything about the wedding was so perfect. The Salter family literally took care of everything; I was not stressed one bit. They even gave me a walkie talkie to keep me updated on everything while I was getting hair and make up done! The moment the ceremony started the entire night was a dream. Our guests were blown away and kept asking us how we found this place?! Everything came together so perfectly. As bittersweet as it was for it to end, we wouldn't change one thing about the entire weekend. We will be looking for any opportunity to go back to the farm and would recommend this place to every couple! It is truly like a destination wedding without having to get on a plane. Thank you Bishop Farm and the Salter family for making our dream wedding day come true. If you're looking for the PERFECT wedding please look at the venue!You will NOT be disappointed!!!!!! We love you guys!Sent on 10/24/2017

Emily · Married on 10/07/2017
A huge “thank you” to the Salter ladies and Bishop Farm staff for making our wedding weekend perfect! I could go on and on about how beautiful Bishop Farm is--it was the most gorgeous setting for our early October wedding. Beyond it being a truly stunning venue, which you can clearly see in the photographs here and on their social media accounts, it is also wonderfully unique. Between the stained glass windows in the ceremony barn and the striking chandeliers in the reception barn, Bishop Farm offers a magical backdrop.Sent on 10/31/2017
What initially drew us to Bishop Farm during our venue search were the onsite accommodations. We knew we wanted our wedding party and parents to stay onsite with us to create this giant slumber party atmosphere for the weekend, and we were not disappointed. It was so much fun to have everyone together. Additionally, in our venue search, we wanted to avoid venues that we perceived as “wedding factories”—spaces that didn’t feel unique, intimate, or personal. When we found Bishop Farm and visited, we knew that the old farm feel and vintage décor touches would completely eclipse other barn venues—our decision was made, and Bishop Farm was where we wanted to get married!
As a somewhat nontraditional bride and someone who doesn't find joy in planning large-scale events, I am so thankful to have had Heather and Annie with me every step of the way. They offered suggestions and guidance whenever I was overwhelmed with the sheer amount of choice and number of decisions to be made. Like so many people have said in their reviews, the Salter ladies have the wedding business down to a science. They know their venue. They know what works in it. More importantly, though, they know what won’t work, and they know how to communicate that to you while offering suggestions. They go above and beyond to make your wedding weekend easier for you, working tirelessly to finish the to-do list so you can enjoy time with friends and family.
Thank you, Bishop Farm!
Bishop Farm's reply:Dear Emily, you are so darn sweet, well spoken and of course, we love how you described Bishop Farm! You thought of everything, from the Vegetarian meal, to the personally picked book for each guest to find their table. Thank you for the kinds words! Sending health and happiness for the holidays and on! <3

Not only is Bishop Farm picturesque and charming, Heather, Annie, Maggie and their staff are incredible! They areSent on 09/28/2017
so very talented, attentive, creative, warm and friendly. Their attention to detail is remarkable and our daughter's wedding was seamless! My daughter and I planned this wedding weekend with me living in Michigan (and my daughter in Massachusetts), so there was always the question of how things would fit together but Heather and Annie made it so easy and never complained about our MANY phone calls and emails! We held our ceremony in the breathtaking chapel and our reception in the main barn. The setting was like a dream and there were many props and decorative items available at the farm to compliment the surroundings. I can't tell you how many compliments we received from family and friends about the beautiful setting, the attention to detail and for those that stayed on the farm, the lovely accommodations.
Bishop Farm's reply:Oh Jean, we can not thank you enough for choosing Bishop Farm for Jaime & Tony's wedding. You were a joy to work with and we just loved you, Fred and the gang! Have fun being a midwest girl and we will see you when you come back east! Sincere thanks! Heather <3
