The Glen Manor is the most picturesque, stunning, and perfect venue I could have ever dreamed of. I knew I wanted to get married here years ago – and to make things better, we are Portsmouth residents so we got a great rate! Katie was amazing to work with, very professional and knowledgable and willing to help with every question I had. She set up all of my items perfectly (old family photographs, the place cards, candles, gift box, etc) and really helped orchestrate the entire day so it was stress-free. The Glen Manor itself is the most incredible experience. From the private upstairs room where my bridesmaids and I got ready, to the outdoor patio, garden and grounds... it is truly a unique location that differs from the typical banquet hall wedding. The beauty of the place speaks for itself and it doesn't need a lot of dressing up with decorations or flowers. The beauty and elegance can't be explained in words!

A picturesque French chateau nestled on the water, surrounded by beautiful grounds, and less than a 20 minute drive from Newport? What more could you ask for in a wedding venue! This place is even more beautiful in person than it is in the photos. It is located at the end of a long country road, which also makes it feel incredibly private. My husband and I felt like we were in our own little world when we stepped into the Glen for the first time. Between the gardens, the view, and all of the beautiful pieces inside the Manor, there isn't much you need to add for decoration! Aside from all of this, Katie was such a pleasure to work with throughout the wedding planning process. She was incredibly organized, responsive, and willing to help in any way she could. I cannot sing Glen Manor (and Katie's) praises enough!

Katie and her team's handling of the overall details of my daughter's wedding was in one word - perfection. My daughter had to catch her breath as she toured the rooms prior to the arrival of the guests.

Glen Manor was the backdrop for our dream wedding. The building itself and the gardens are kept in beautiful condition. It is amazing how much work must be put in daily to keep it in the condition its in. Everyone at our wedding could not stop commenting on how much they loved the venue! Other than the actual building I cannot say enough good things about Katie, the event coordinator. SHE IS AMAZING. Katie is kind and professional. She has certain rules that cannot be broken, but she will tell you so with a smile. Every time I send her an email to ask a question, which was A LOT of times, she was very prompt in getting back to me. My cousin married us and it was his first time doing so, which was a little nerve wracking since none of us really knew exactly how things were supposed to go. Katie helped us walk through each step of the ceremony during the rehearsal and put everyone at ease. She is also wonderful on the day of the event- the definition of calm, cool and collected- which is exactly what you need on a crazy busy day. I highly recommend the Glen to everyone I know, and hope we get to go back to a wedding there someday! Katie you really are the best!!

An amazing, beautiful place -- I feared it would be too stuffy for us, but once I stepped inside and had my first conversation with Katie Wilkinson, I knew it was the right place. Katie was professional, helpful, straight forward and always available -- whether it was 6 months before the wedding or the day of. She took care of everything -- we never had any worries that it would be otherwise, and that made all the difference on our wedding day.

While there is a cost to a historic location on the water, the staff at the Glen Manor House is the true value -- they will help you bring your wedding to life and deliver you something you won't ever forget!

I cannot recommend this place enough. I was looking for a intimate, french style, romantic, and classic venue and as soon as I saw pictures online (i was planning from SF) I knew this was the place. I got dressed upstairs and the room was big enough for all my bridesmaids, cousin and aunts to come in & out of- plus it provided a great back drop for photos. I had my ceremony out in the garden and ordered very minimal flowers because there were so many already there. The way the landscape is, it creates a natural space for the ceremony. If you want your specific colors/flowers out there I would imagine it would lend very well to that too. We did cocktail hour out on the terrace, which was one of my favorite parts of the house. I had dinner in both dining rooms and ate with my husband and all the 'friend' tables outside. The doors are very large so you don't feel closed off in any one room which provided the perfect balance (person & not banquety). The DJ was set up in the other main dancing hall and there was more than enough space for all of my guests. There were 125pp and a lot were on the dance floor most of the night. But again having all the different rooms was a fun & romantic way to break everything up. I think everyone had fun exploring the grounds a bit and it is small enough to do so without feeling like you are away from the party. There is no AC so if you are getting married in late July like me, just know that going in. However, the stone makes the house naturally cool, the water provides a nice breeze, the wide tall doors allow for circulation and they have fans. Last but not least, Katie makes this place what it is. I don’t think they get much better than her- organized, experienced, responsive, a pleasure to work with.

WOW! Glen Manor was an amazing choice for my wedding. I am so glad we made the choice to hold our event here. Katie is a top notch coordinator; she's professional and very skilled at what she dooes. Come the day of my wedding, I had nothing to worry about and every detail was handled with care as I would have. The guests were all blown away by the venue and my photographer was in heaven. I could not be happier that we chose to say 'I do' at the Glen Manor! I would advice not to be put off my the layout, it totally works and facitiates this great flow and a feeling that it's your place for the evening. It was worth every penny.

The grounds and the manor itself were spectacular! If you want a storybook wedding, this is the place. While the Manor was the focal point for the guests, the best benefit for me was Katie, the venue coordinator. She made everything run like clockwork, and her great relationships with the local vendors ensured that the bride and I didn't have to think about any of the details on our special day.
