Getting married or planning a special event and looking for the perfect location? Ulfsby Gård might be just what you are looking for. Located on Åland, an idyllic island between Sweden and Finland, this family-run mansion and event venue can be uniquely tailored to meet your needs.

”We’ve had a fantastic year, seeing so many beautiful couples get married on our premises,” says Erika Gustafsson, manager and owner, adding: “We’re a family business: my parents started a restaurant here at the beginning of the ‘00s, then put it on pause for a few years until I decided to take over and evolve it into a wedding- and events venue. Our history is embedded in everything we do, and the farm has been in my family’s possession since the mid-18th century — I’m the tenth generation living here. There are about ten houses on the grounds, leaving plenty of space for magnificent events with a large number of guests.”

The event venue itself is a refurbished barn from the 19th century where the old rustic stone foundation has been preserved and polished to give an exceptional space for special occasions. High ceilings with chandeliers, wooden beams, and carefully selected decorations add to the celebratory vibe, and the serene countryside surrounding the premises creates an idyllic location for the celebration.

The venue welcomes both weddings and company events with a unique flexibility to suit different needs. For parties preferring to have everything taken care of, food and alcohol service can be delivered in-house, but guests are also allowed to bring their own catering and beverage for the event. Gustafsson, with the benefit of living only a stones-throw away, is there for anything that the guests might need leading up to the event. ”A premium level of service is my focal point, and I’m here to help with anything that my guests might need, which makes a huge difference for anyone planning a once-in-a-lifetime wedding day or an important company occasion,” she says. The venue is only eight kilometres from Mariehamn, and new ideas are brewing. ”We’re building a wedding suite for the newlyweds in one of our small houses and working on creating conference packages for large groups. There’s an exciting year ahead,” Gustafsson concludes.
