Running Away To Get Married?

There’s the old stereotype about couples getting married in secret having to travel north of the border to Gretna Green to do so – but in this day and age, having a stripped-down, secret wedding doesn’t have to take place in far-flung Scotland! While we at Ufford Park Woodbridge relish in hosting hundreds of happy couples who share their big days with us and their friends and families in the bosom of the Suffolk countryside, we are also aware that everyone’s needs and wants are different – and in many cases, less planning may often be for the better!

It is not unheard of for couples wanting to ‘run away’ to get married – or to get hitched in private, legally, in front of a number of close witnesses. We’re all for it – it is our mission to help you celebrate your partnership in whichever shape or form will make you the happiest! What’s more, it’s not unheard of to plan a wedding in just a few weeks – while many couples are more than happy to take weeks out of their schedule to fine-tune every last inch of detail to ensure perfection, some are just as happy to give the notice they need to and to get wed within weeks of getting in touch with us. Providing we have the dates and space available, we’ll be as accommodating as we possibly can!

Bride showing off her bouquetUfford Park is a popular resort for weddings and similar celebrations, meaning that it is likely that peak season at short notice will be considerably busy, particularly at weekends. However, we may still have room in our diaries for you if you are aiming to run away for a short-notice wedding with minimal attendance – we never like to say ‘no’ without exhausting all of the possibilities first, and we’d be delighted to help host your big day as best we can.

Ufford Park hotel and spa is a spectacular location for weddings and other celebrations and we are therefore delighted to be able to share so many wonderful memories and moments with so many wonderful people. Whether you have been planning your nuptials for some time, or if you are instead looking for a quick breakaway to tie the knot in private, we will always be on hand to help you make your big day that little bit more special – all you have to do is get in touch!
