Thomas Bennett House | Charleston Wedding Venue Spotlight

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to spend a morning at the Thomas Bennett House, capturing the beauty around every corner of the property. I was amazed to learn so much history about the house and discover how incredibly versatile this venue is.

Nestled in the heart of historic downtown Charleston, the Governor Thomas Bennett House is a timeless and elegant wedding venue. Its rich history, stunning architecture, and picturesque surroundings make it a dream location for a Charleston wedding! The venue’s private garden, towering oak tree, and charming piazza are absolutely breathtaking and the interior is just as lovely. Upon entering the historic house you’re greeted by a sweeping staircase, carved details at every turn, and numerous light filled rooms just perfect for getting ready with your favorite people the morning of your wedding.

For couples seeking an extraordinary wedding venue in downtown Charleston, the Governor Thomas Bennett House is a captivating choice.

What I Love About Weddings
at The Thomas Bennett House

  1. Large, beautiful, light-filled spaces to get ready in. There’s enough room for everyone to get ready inside!
  2. Everything can take place at the venue. Getting ready, portraits, ceremony, reception – there’s no need for running around venue to venue! 
  3. There are indoor and outdoor options at this venue! You can host your guests al fresco on the brick patio or lawn, add a tent, utilize the porch, or take the party inside the historic home for cocktail hour. Plus, in case of rain, you have so many beautiful options for photos inside.

Pro Tips for Weddings
at The Thomas Bennett House

  1. Consider having your ceremony a couple hours before sunset. The lighting can be spotty in the courtyard before then.
  2.  Build in as much time as possible for portraits – you’ll want to take advantage of the property’s beautiful spaces!
  3. Parking is available in a nearby parking lot for your guests, a rarity in downtown Charleston!
