Across four floors, York Mansion House is unique in York with every room and space throughout the house licensed for civil ceremonies. From the grand State Room to the cosy historic kitchen, we guarantee you’ll find a space that is perfect for your wedding ceremony.

We understand that things have changed a lot during the past year, and you may have been putting your wedding on hold – and on hold again – as you navigate the changing pandemic guidelines. However are we start to look forward, we are delighted to begin working with our couples again, and providing more flexibility for beautiful ceremonies to take place alongside any other plans you’ve made.


What to expect

Whether you’re looking for an alternative to the Register Office, something that is completely unique, or perhaps marrying now and partying later, we have a space that will work for you. We are passionate about hosting beautiful ceremonies, and with our ceremony package, you can be confident of a memorable and stunning occasion, before you move onto your reception.




What’s included?

For £350 (exc. VAT) you will have exclusive use of the house for two hours, on a time or date of your choosing*.

This will give us time to set up your chosen space, allow time for your guests to arrive, and leaves opportunity for you to take advantage of the house, and take some beautiful photographs following the ceremony.


How does this work?

We want to make this as easy as possible for you – without compromising anything.

For a civil (legal) ceremony, this will have to be arranged by you at York Register Office, and all statutory fees and processes will go directly through them. Once you have booked your date and time with the Registrars, simply contact us and we will make sure the house is yours – if you’re not sure of dates, please get in touch as we’re always happy to hold a date in the diary for you.

Perhaps you’ve already been legally married, and would like to take advantage of the package as part of your second celebration? In this case, why not use a celebrant that suits your style and who can create a ceremony just for you.


Where do we start?

Speak to us! We’d love to hear your ceremony ideas and invite you to experience the house. 

To book a time to visit or to find out more, please contact our Events Co-ordinator Laura on 01904 553663 or at
