  • Ultimately, St. Clements was booked on the date we were aiming for, but we both fell in love with the beautiful property and amenities. This was the first venue we toured in our wedding planning/search and their sales manager, Lauren really set the bar high for other venues when it came to professionalism. I am envious of the couples who beat us to our special date, but am so happy they will get to celebrate at such a beautiful location. Highly recommend!

  • The staff was amazing, from the coordinator to the bar tender who hid a bottle of my mother in laws favorite wine so she would have some in case it ran out. They are upfront about their rules and restrictions. Lots of upgrades available but not necessary. Price is per person (although the minimum number of guests is not small). I had an amazing experience and my guest and family had a great time!!

  • Our wedding was in June 2019 in the Waterford ballroom. The grounds were beautiful and you would've never guessed there was a wedding in that same venue earlier in the day. The appetizers were amazing and the staff was very attentive to myself and my husband. Although they do have some rules regarding outside vendors, candles, etc., they were very accommodating with our requests. Would definitely recommend this venue!

  • I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Saint Clements Castle. My wedding was an absolute fairy tale thanks to Saint Clements Castle. Everything was well handled, all staff were friendly and professional, and the grounds are an absolute dream. I corresponded with Lauren the most, and she was extremely professional, timely, and patient with this anxious bride. She put my mind at ease, and made things SO much easier and more relaxed for me both before my wedding day and on my wedding day. I was also so touched that they took the time to write a nice note on the box they packaged up our wedding cake in. I recommend Saint Clements Castle to everyone who is looking to get married or to have an event.

  • My husband and I knew this was the venue we wanted to get married in the second we pulled through the gates. Jacob, Katelynn, Emily and the entire staff at Saint Clements Castle made our wedding day everything we had hoped it would be. Jacob answered every question we had quickly and was extremely helpful throughout the whole planning process. Katelynn and Emily helped everything go smoothly the whole wedding day. All of our guests couldn't stop talking about Saint Clement's beauty. We are so happy with everything this venue had to offer!

  • This venue has everything you could want - gorgeous views of the Connecticut River, pristine landscaping, and a historical building with real character, not to mention the beautiful courtyard. The ballroom has beautiful chandeliers and large windows. Our wedding coordinator, Jake, helped us plan every little detail of our wedding day and he was patient with us and gave prompt responses to our numerous emails as we were planning from California. He also coordinated with the chefs to prepare a special hors d’oeuvre just for us! The staff at Saint Clements is incredibly professional, we didn’t have to worry about a thing on our big day — the were on it! One of the waitresses was so attentive that she noticed the lights not on on one of the centerpieces and fixed it. We’d like to give a special shoutout to our attendant, Amanda, who never let us reach the bottom of our glasses and couldn’t have been sweeter. It’s well worth the price, trust us!

  • We had our ceremony and reception at St. Clements. The staff truly went above and beyond even months before our wedding. Every question I had was answered in a timely manner and the wonderful staff essentially did everything for us the day of. All place cards, favors, etc were perfectly placed and I didn’t have to worry about anything. The food was also amazing. My guests raved about the beautiful venue, food, and courteous staff. We couldn’t be happier!

  • This was the first venue we checked out and we fell in love immediately! Everyone from Pam Marshall our event coordinator, to Lindsey our wedding day coordinator, everything was incredibly organized! They did a fantastic job at making our most memorable day so much more! The food was amazing and the service even better! Both families had an amazing experience and walked away saying it was the best wedding they had been to! We couldn't have done it without Saint Clement's!

  • We cannot recommend Saint Clements Castle enough! From the moment we walked onto the grounds, we knew we were getting married at Saint Clements. It is a stunning location and they do an amazing job of keeping the lawn, the gardens, and the castle in pristine condition. The team at Saint Clements is also wonderful. From the very beginning, we worked with Jacob who is not only a fabulous planner but such an easy going person. He really listened to what we wanted and made us feel important. He also responded to just about all of my emails within 5 minutes of receipt. I remember once emailing him about napkin colors and he instantaneously responded with pictures and ideas. On our wedding night, Caitlyn took great care of us and all our guests. She ensured that everything ran exactly on time down to the minute. Our guests were thrilled with their meals and the professionalism of the night. We even went out on a limb and ordered the unconventional chilled strawberry soup for dinner an... Read more

  • When you think of a fairy tale wedding you certainly think of getting married at a castle. Saint Clements Castle was quite frankly the wedding venue of my dreams. From the venue to the staff everything was absolutely perfect on my special day. The staff were so incredibly attentive and really made sure that the day went off without a hitch. Being someone who is detail oriented I was completely pleased with how much effort they put in making my day so wonderful. I absolutely recommend this venue!

  • I had my wedding at Saint Clements (Waterford Ballroom) on July 6, 2019, and I could not be any happier with my experience! Starting with my first time at the venue, I felt like the staff was willing to work with me to make my wedding day exactly what I wanted it to be. The staff was wonderful and extremely responsive prior to my wedding day. On the day of the wedding, there was always a staff member available to assist me in anyway possible, and they made sure everything ran smoothly. There was a chance of rain on my wedding day, and the staff was willing to set up my ceremony outdoors while keeping the option to move indoors if needed. One thing that my guests could not stop talking about was how good the food was! Everything from the appetizers to dessert at the end of the night was DELICIOUS! The venue was beautiful and I would recommend Saint Clements to any future bride!

  • Booking Saint Clements for our wedding on 6.21.19 was one of the best wedding decisions we made. The team at the castle is phenomenal and truly helped make all our visions become reality. Throughout the planning process, Lauren was so easy to communicate with and so patient with all of my questions. The day of our wedding we had a day of coordinator and a bridal attendant who were available for absolutely anything we could have needed. The moment we arrived to the venue we were met with a plate of hors d’oeuvres and drinks. Many people say you are so busy the day of the wedding, that you don’t have time to eat, but with this team that was not an option! Danielle and Brenna helped to make sure despite of all wedding events occurring, that my husband and i were able to step away for sunset photos. They adjusted our timeline on the spot so that we could get the last minute photos we wanted. The team at the castle did a BEAUTIFUL job setting up for the wedding. The day before, i had d...

  • Everything was absolutely PERFECT! We got married in June overlooking the river with the reception in the Waterford Ballroom. We worked with Jake for all planning purposes leading up- he was extremely professional, responsive, and assuring regarding any stresses or panics! Day of we had Lindsey and Lulu by our sides, who could not have been more AMAZING! They kept everything running smoothly, making sure family/party was organized for pictures, getting me cheese and crackers so I could actually eat before the ceremony, and bustling my dress when it had come undone while dancing. They sent us home with a box of cake with a sweet message since we didn’t get to eat any during. Attention to detail and genuine concern from every staff member we encountered was clear and not unnoticed by the guests as well. From the ceremony and cocktail hour to the reception- the gardens, interior, and décor were absolutely beautiful. We have gotten so many compliments about this venue and guests con... Read more

  • Our wedding was booked back in 2018 for an October 2020 wedding date. We chose St. Clements Castle for the beautiful, lush landscaping on the grounds along the Connecticut River. There is also a beautiful interior room for the ceremony to be performed in the event of inclement weather. We were so looking forward to having our wedding ceremony outdoors and the cocktail hour and reception in the Waterford ballroom. Unfortunately, Covid-19 surfaced in March of 2020 and we were not able to hold our wedding at this lovely venue. Throughout the months of Covid-19 leading up to our wedding date, the St. Clements Castle representatives kept us informed of the situation and our options. They graciously offered to host a smaller wedding reception should the governor of CT open up and allow for more guests at an indoor gathering. These are unprecedented times that we are all dealing with and Pam and the staff at St. Clements Castle are handling it all with grace and professionalism and making s... Read more
