Weddings at Norwich Inn

To get started, complete our Event Request and our Wedding and Special Events Manager will contact you.

Elopements & Small Weddings

Private, Serene, Elegant, Secluded…all the qualities and characteristics you look for when choosing a location for your elopement or small wedding.

An atmosphere to connect, to re-kindle, or to ask for a lifelong commitment where “I Do” is heard clearly around the romantic gardens, the oval reflecting pool, and in our Country Cottage or a private room of the classic Georgian Colonial Revival Inn… Quite a backdrop for such a special occasion, the one that you can’t stop thinking about…the one you can’t wait for to happen.

Choose from several packages. Each may be further customized to include your ideas and greatest wishes. Our staff is devoted to making certain all the details are exactly as you wish, allowing for you to simply relax and focus on this moment.

Please contact our Wedding & Special Events Manager at 860-425-3686 or complete an Event Request for additional information.
