Saint Clements was the perfect choice for our wedding. They were very accommodating and would quickly respond whenever we had questions. They also set up everything perfectly and we knew we had nothing to worry about on the day of. The staff was very attentive and made sure that everything was running smoothly and that we had everything that we needed all night long. The food was also fantastic! We got so many compliments on not only how amazing the food was, but how spectacular the grounds were. It was a perfect location for our wedding and highly recommend that venue to others!

We absolutely loved everything about the venue. It was beautiful, the service was great, and they helped with so many details to make it a perfect day. We live in CA so planning a wedding 3,000 miles away could have been very stressful and nerve racking. Their team was so helpful and confident, they did a great job bringing our ideas to life.

St. Clements Castle was the first venue we looked at, and nothing we saw afterwards compared. In order for it to fit in our budget, we had to compromise on having our wedding on a Friday night, which ended up being perfect since we could choose our own times (they have set times for Saturday weddings). We worked directly with Erin throughout the whole process. She was very responsive and answered all of our questions right away. The only thing I would suggest is to compile a list of everything you want, and ask about it before booking. They are pretty strict with certain things, knowing exactly what is and isn't allowed before hand is very important before booking. For example, you can't use real candles. One thing that almost made us change our mind was the rain plan they have for the ceremony. We chose the Waterford Room, which has amazing views of the river. However, the ceremony spot for this is on the sprawling lawn overlooking the river. Beautiful! But, if it rained even just in the morning and cleared up by ceremony time, it would have to be held in the courtyard where only a certain number of chairs are allowed. And if it is raining for the ceremony? It is held in the art gallery which only fits about 120 or so guests standing room only. This was a big deal for me, as we had about 190 guests on our list and I didn't want a big chunk of those guests to have to miss it. The only other option was to rent a tent for something like $2000, which we would have to do with quite a bit of notice, and which would be up whether it was raining or not on the actual day. Already being at the top of our budget that wasn't an option. We ended up choosing to have our ceremony at a local church in order to not have that stress the week before the wedding, and went ahead and booked them since everything else about the venue was so perfect. I'm so glad we did! The staff was so attentive the whole night, and everything went so smoothly. I would do it over again in a heartbeat!

Where to even begin! Working with Saint Clements was the most incredible experience imaginable. They made being a bride so easy! From the moment we first toured the castle we knew this was where we wanted to hold our wedding reception. The Waterford Room is exceptional with a gorgeous patio and lawn overlooking the Connecticut River. You will not have better pictures anywhere else!!! Anytime I had a question or concern I quickly emailed Pam and she would email me right back. They were accommodating and helpful in every possible way. I had guests RSVP up until 2 days before the wedding and they still made changes to make sure everyone was all set. The day before the wedding we went in for a final walk through and to go over all of the details with Pam and our day-of-coordinator, Jake. We brought everything we needed set up - favors, napkins, pictures, place cards, menus etc. You name it, they will set it all up so you don't have to worry about a SINGLE THING on your wedding day. Our wedding day - wow - no words to adequately explain how amazing everything came out. From the minute we arrived at the castle and Jake brought us up to the bridal suite, to Lorraine who stayed with my husband and me all night to be sure we had everything we needed, to the end of the night climbing into our car and Jake handing us a box with 3 giant pieces of wedding cake in it! He even wrote a sweet note on top of the box, so thoughtful!!! One example to demonstrate how amazing Saint Clements is - at one point in the reception my new husband and I were at the photobooth and he was hot so he wanted to take his tux jacket off. Literally out of nowhere came Lorraine to hold the jacket for him! It was amazing and my husband was stunned, we really could not believe how kind and helpful she was, along with everyone else at the castle. The guests raved about every single bite of food, the service and the stunning venue. Every last detail was PERFECT. Beyond 5 stars!!!!! Dream wedding venue!!!!

This venue is amazing!!! The facility is absolutely beautiful. My daughter was married in the sunken garden. Our wedding coordinator Pam was great from start to finish. Jake worked with us the evening of the wedding and we did not have to worry about anything. From coordinating the ceremony to packing the car at the end of the evening, Jake was phenomenal. He took care of every detail and we had not one worry. The food was fabulous from appetizer to the ice cream sundae bar. I highly recommend this venue!!!!

Fantastic venue, beautiful view! The food was amazing, the staff was wonderful. The venue itself has so much character to it that you hardly need to bring anything in yourself. We were able to sit down with them a few days before the wedding and finalize all the plans. The staff did a wonderful job attending to us throughout the evening and everything went off without a hitch. Our guests had a wonderful time and I have only heard amazing things about their experience at the venue as well.
