What are some recent reviews from couples who have gotten married at Hampshire House?
“I got married at Hampshire House last weekend and I cannot say enough great things about the venue, food, and staff!!! We decided to postpone our larger reception but still wanted to have an intimate ceremony and dinner with family on our original date. That is when we found Hampshire House. I honestly wish we had found it sooner because it was everything we wanted and more. Michele was SO easy to work with from the very beginning, was super responsive, and made navigating a micro wedding during a pandemic a breeze. She was onsite to help coordinate everything the day of the wedding and she even ran to find me a Tide to Go pen when I spilled something on my dress during dinner. The food and service were amazing, everyone has not stopped raving about how good the food was. And I’m not talking good by wedding food standards, I’m talking by foodie standards. I also loved that they let you pick 4 different entrees to offer your guests (from a huge list) and none of them were upgrades or extras including steak, lamb, swordfish, etc. Everything from the appetizers to the entrees, to the cake, was delicious and beautiful. The library room is such a gorgeous and cozy location for a winter wedding in Boston (or any other season really). Plus the location makes for some amazing photos both inside and outside in Beacon Hill and the Public Garden. I cannot recommend HH enough!!”
“We had a very quick engagement and wanted to have a smaller, intimate fall wedding in Boston. The Hampshire house was perfect. From the gorgeous park views to the iconic Beacon Hill streets that surrounded the property to the one-of-a-kind staircase and rooms, the venue is elegant and so very timeless. And because we had a tight timeline, and only a month or so to plan, we needed a great team to help us pull it all together. Not only did Amanda and the team at the Hampshire House help us find almost all of our INCREDIBLE vendors in a matter of days, but they worked with us every step of the way to make the planning process easy and customized. On the day of the wedding, Amanda had everything orchestrated perfectly and took care of us so well. The wedding was not cookie-cutter… it was unique and so very special. We got compliments from ALL our guests on how beautiful the venue was and how incredible the staff was. I honestly can’t recommend the Hampshire House & Amanda more! Without them, we could have never pulled off such a beautiful wedding in such a short time.”
