If you’re looking for a bespoke wedding dress, or a vintage bridal gown, a visit to York is a must. There is also a number of independent jewellers that offer distinctive pieces that can really bring your look together.

The ceremony

If it is a traditional wedding you are after, York has an exciting selection of churches that could be the perfect venue for saying “I do”.

Selecting York for your wedding will ensure that you have an enjoyable and sophisticated day, creating memories that will last a lifetime.
