Like something out of a modern fairytale, Glen Manor House is every princess’s dream come true. With it’s gilded age glamour inside and sweeping views of the ocean outside, wherever you are there’s a view that can’t be beat. Ceremonies can be held outside on the lawn overlooking the water, in the manicured garden on the side of the property, or inside in one of the beautiful rooms. It’s like something out of a fairy tale. A bit smaller and more intimate than the Newport mansions, and less known, Glen Manor is the perfect venue for a one-of-a-kind couple. Located on a good piece of land in Portsmouth just a few miles away from the hubbub of Newport, there’s no chance of foot traffic disrupting pictures of a ceremony.
In the early 1900s Glen Manor was built as a private home. in 1959 it was sold to the Sisters of the Sacred Heart and turned into a school for children. In the 1970s the property was sold to the city of Portsmouth and restored to its original glory. Today the property is used as an event space.
Whether you like it for the history, the architecture, or the location, you can’t go wrong with Glen Manor. Fit for royalty, the couple that get’s married here is sure to start their lives together on the right foot.
