The undeniable elegance of Glen Manor wedding photography

When you choose to marry at the Glen Manor House in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, you will surely be left with wedding photos that look straight off the pages of a fairy tale. At least, that’s how Paul and I felt when we got married there in 2013.

There are many wedding venues in New England with a rich historical background. The Glen Manor House history dates back to the 1920s and has been a top choice for Rhode Island wedding photos because of its picture-perfect ambiance.

The famous Olmsted Brothers designed the exquisite landscaping around the home, with loving nods to Italian design. No wonder this venue is oozing with romance and warmth!

Glen Manor wedding photography doesn’t require much decor

Wedding couples looking for a romantic, dreamy feel will find the Glen Manor property gorgeous on its own, meaning you won’t have to spend too much on decorating the space to achieve your wedding vision.

Personally, I find visual inspiration from the sheer variety of background options that wedding couples can take advantage of on the property. Specifically, Glen Manor wedding photography will offer the following:

- Magnificently large windows and doorways for classic portrait shots

- A majestic, curved staircase and marble flooring that will feel like a page from Beauty and the Beast’s ballroom

- Luxurious, twinkling chandeliers set the scene for the perfect first dance

- Landscapes that are spectacularly kept with vivid flowers and lush greenery

- A charming wooden dock and pebble-paved beach to capture glorious sunset shots

Summer Glen Manor Wedding Photos by the waterThe best season for a Glen Manor wedding

The Glen Manor House lets couples reserve a wedding date between May and October. November through April is also available, but oftentimes there will be limited dates to choose from due to other events on the property, and January is historically closed to bookings.

From our experience, capturing Glen Manor weddings at any point in the year would be lovely, but we typically find ourselves there in July and September. These warmer months are ideal for guests to revel in the gorgeous garden landscapes and waterfront views.

Regardless of the date you choose, you’ll be in great hands with the incredibly helpful event support team at Glen Manor House.
