Our Unique Weddings

Runaway Irish Weddings @ The Rocks prides itself on being absolutely unique! 

The Rocks is a hidden gem found up a small country lane deep in the South Down countryside. It has been carefully designed to provide a beautiful and utterly romantic place to have one of the most important days of your lives.

The Summer House and Conservatory Bar have all been created with a passion and flare for design. The gardens are spread over 2 acres and set among woodland. Meandering paths lead to secret spaces, waterfalls and ponds. This quirky venue has a surprise around every corner. Our aim is to provide a beautiful, relaxed and magical place for couples to share with their family or friends, to spend an amazing day  creating forever memories.

Runaway Irish Weddings is much more than just a venue. We are all about crafting small and intimate weddings. It’s what we do and we do it well………..

Owned and run by Humanist Celebrant Ann Pinkerton, The Rocks is an approved venue for legal weddings up to 12 - 18 people. Humanist Celebrants are experts in creating unique, personal, and bespoke ceremonies with the focus on the couple and their wishes. Ann realised that this unique humanist approach, combined with this beautiful, intimate venue,  could create something very, very special indeed. 

The words, the music and whole feel of the wedding is of paramount importance. Our non-religious Humanist weddings are beautiful crafted affairs. We really get to know our couples beforehand, whether in person or by video link for our overseas couples. We work together to make sure every wish or dream is woven into a relaxed, magical and memorable day.

But we needed help. We approached the ‘best of the best’ - local talented and gifted musicians, cake designers and florists who are true artists, and supremely talented photographers. Every one of them saw the potential of our dream immediately and joined the Runaway family. Chefs, Judy Wildish and Julia Shirley  with their world class experience agreed to join us. With impressive pedigrees, their food is legendary! Both Judy and Julia will happily work with couples, creating anything from a boho picnic to a romantic candlelit dinner. 

That was our dream and it's now a reality - we can provide everything you need from flowers to food, from cakes to celebrants to accompanying music........ Whether you want a small legal wedding with just the two of you, or a slightly bigger affair with all the extras we have the flexibility to make it happen for you. So have a look around, look at Our Venue, Meet The Team and then maybe drop us an email, phone or use our Make Enquiry form.
