The 10 Best Wedding Locations in New Hampshire!

“Going to the chapel, and we’re gonna get married…” is how the song goes. Find a perfect location to celebrate your big day can be stressful. For a historic, elegant, and rustic but charming wedding day, New Hampshire is your place. Whether you’re looking for a pristine modern space or you want to dance the night away on a farm, New Hampshire has it. Here are the 10 best wedding locations in the state.  

1. Flag Hill Distillery & Winery, Lee, NH

Flag Hill is a gorgeous spot for a wedding if you’re thinking of saying “I do” between May and November. Featuring a large tent with a solid floor for the reception area, the wedding can take place outside at the entrance to the vineyard, where the grapes for their wine are grown. Flag Hill is also a distillery, and that is where lots of brides and grooms have had their wedding photographer take a few shots. 

2. Seacoast Science Center, Rye, NH

Yes, the Seacoast Science Center is a facility that provides exhibits and learning experiences about the sea and its abundant wildlife, but it’s also the perfect spot to have a wedding. The events coordinator explains in greater detail what is available at certain times of the year, but several spots overlooking the ocean are excellent places for wedding ceremonies to take place. Receptions are held outside in a large tent, complete with a dance floor. Countless wedding photos have been taken on the rocks between the venue and the water. 

3. Curtis Farm, Wilton, NH

Hosting outdoor weddings in season, Curtis Farm is a 1746 farm with views of the beautiful Monadnock Mountains. Think elegant instead of rustic, however, because even though the reception is held in a tent, everything is exquisite. Photographers love catching the bride and groom with the mountains as a backdrop.

4. Wentworth by the Sea, New Castle, NH

Wentworth by the Sea is equipped to host a wide range of weddings, from intimate 30-person affairs to large and lavish events. Between its ballrooms and outdoor spots—including a gazebo—there are several places where the ceremony can take place apart from the reception area. Everything at the Wentworth is stunning, and the food is out of this world. The views are of the ocean and the many sailboats that moor there in the summer months. Even in the midst of a cold New Hampshire winter, however, Wentworth by the Sea throws warm weddings inside.

5. The Woodbound Inn, Rindge, NH

Rustic weddings are all the rage, and the Woodbound Inn is an excellent place to host one. Located along the shores of Lake Contoocook, the grounds will take you back to days at summer camp. The lodge is the perfect place to hold a reception, and the inn will serve as your event planner for both the ceremony and reception. Not into rustic? Some very elegant weddings have taken place here, too, with the lake as a lovely backdrop for wedding photography.

6. Bishop Farm, Lisbon, NH

Bishop Farm will host your intimate wedding or a larger event with up to 180 wedding guests. Get married in their Ceremony Barn and hold your reception in their restored 1876 bar. There are several beautiful spots outside for the ceremony, too. Bishop Farm can also serve as a destination wedding, with their inn and cabins that can accommodate many of your guests. Rustic is definitely the theme here, so don’t make an appointment with their planner and expect elegance. It’s a beautiful country/mountainous spot where countless couples’ dreams come true every year.

7. The Margate on Winnipesaukee, Laconia, NH

The Margate on Winnipesaukee is a lavish lakeside venue with indoor and outdoor facilities for weddings any time of year. Floor to ceiling windows in Mariah Room and Main Ballroom afford stunning views—even when two feet of snow cover the ground. Tented receptions and ceremony sites in the warmer months bring weddings even closer to the water. Sunsets are magical on Lake Winnipesaukee, and wedding photographers love to capture the happy couple as the sun goes down, when possible.

8. The Barn at Whitneyโ€™s Inn, Jackson, NH

The Barn at Whitney’s Inn is a gorgeous spot for a fall or winter wedding. Yes, they host weddings year-round, but there’s just something spectacular about a wedding taking place with all that snow on the ground. The inn will host the reception and can even accommodate lots of wedding guests. Think “Upscale Rustic” and get ready to plan the wedding of your dreams in this gorgeous spot. Hint: Sometimes sleigh rides can be arranged for the bride and groom and guests.

9. Wedgewood Weddings Granite Rose, Hampstead, NH

With the capacity to host up to 400 people, this location has indoor and outdoor ceremony options, including a gazebo and fountain. Indoor spots include ballrooms with floor to ceiling windows with stunning views. The food options range from simple to extravagant, and always receive rave reviews.

10. Castleton Banquet & Conference Center, Windham, NH

A gorgeous lakeside venue, Castleton Banquet & Conference Center will provide you with the wedding of your dreams. They’ll help plan your wedding from start to finish. A bridal suite for getting dressed, waterfront ceremony spots and beautiful gardens all lend themselves to the perfect wedding day.
