Wentworth by the Sea in New Castle, NH is a lovely hotel and spa located on Great Island surrounded by the waters of Portsmouth. They have three gorgeous ballrooms available for hosting events; specifically weddings. The Wentworth Ballroom holds up to 250 guests. The formal décor combined with a private area for a romantic cocktail reception is the perfect setting for your next event.
Their Grand Ballroom dates back to 1874 and has been elegantly restored including the original stage, chandeliers, and woodwork. It offers an intimate feel of early New England and Victorian charm. The Grand Ballroom and attached bridal suite with its own private formal staircase is a perfect setting for up to 144 guests.
Most popular in the spring and summer months, the Garden Ballroom offers its own beautiful private event space. The doors open directly onto the veranda where you can enjoy a cocktail reception outside with breathtaking water views of the bay while overlooking areas of the Wentworth gardens. The Garden Ballroom is the perfect setting for smaller weddings or cocktail receptions for up to 80 guests.
I chose this venue not just because of it's beauty but because one of my good friends from high school recently got married there. She had a nautical wedding theme that was carried throughout her engagement photos to her wedding day. Check out this blushing bride's journey below.
