Venue Spotlight | Castle in the Clouds


Venue Spotlight | Castle in the Clouds


As a wedding photographer, I’ve had the pleasure of working in many beautiful places all over New England. This area of the world is known for it’s historic charm and natural splendor, and this week’s Vendor Spotlight reaches the peaks of both those accolades. Castle in the Clouds is magnificent! Seated high on the mountainside, this historic turn of the century estate delivers unbeatable 180° views overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee and the mountains beyond.

Each and every time I set foot on this venue, it takes my breath away. Originally the home of shoe-manufacturing millionaire, Tomas Plant, The Lucknow Estate operates seasonally as a museum, gallery, restaurant and park. However, it is well-prepared to host weddings. Castle in the Clouds has packages that can be custom designed to your dreams. To hint at a few of the beautiful moments I’ve witnessed, picture this: A vintage trolly winds up the mountain, shuttling guests to your Castle Garden Ceremony. Entering the day of your dreams, you’ll pass through the century-old pergola out onto the garden terrace with stanchions dripping with gorgeous flowers. Then as newlyweds, you’ll dance the night away under rustic exposed beams and wrought iron railings and banisters. It really, truly offers the fairytale wedding.

I’ve assembled some of my favorite photos from weddings that I’ve worked at Castle in the Clouds over the last few years. I hope they give you a sense of the divine beauty this venue has to offer. Event Manager Jessica Raymond will be able to assist you with any questions or needs you have in securing this venue for your special day. At this point it probably goes without saying, if you need a photographer- I’d be more than happy to help 🙂
