Your wedding should reflect who you are, and celebrate your days to come. At York Mansion House, discover unique spaces and beautiful rooms, all of which are licensed for your civil ceremony. Take your pick from a single room, or show off the best of York by hiring the whole house, for ceremonies and receptions from two to 100 people.

We specialise in creating beautiful ceremonies, and have a variety of options for you to add on drinks or dinner receptions. In these uncertain times, we are fully approved for Covid-secure weddings, and – although the vision of your day might have changed - we don’t want it to be any less beautiful.
