Civil Ceremonies

“Simple, meaningful civil marriage ceremonies ~ your wedding, your vows, your way”


York Racecourse offers a wonderful location for weddings and is now licensed for civil ceremonies and civil partnerships.


From the Eclipse Suite - with its top floor outdoor balcony and views to York Minster and the white horse at Kilburn, to the modern and airy Nunthorpe Suite - able to accommodate 100 plus guests, as well as the intimate and traditional Edwardian Gimcrack rooms – each of our suites have a different feel and need to be seen to get a real feel for how they could work.


If you are looking for inspiration for your reception room or perhaps your honeymoon, then look no further - Rebecca has joined forces with The Gay Wedding Guide, a one-stop shop for same sex wedding ideas and inspiration, advice from celebrity wedding planners, welcoming wedding venues, gay honeymoon destinations, wedding reading.    


To arrange a showround call us on 01904 638971 or email and Rebecca would be delighted to show you round. You might also find the City of York Council's webpage on marriages and civil partnerships useful, if you are considering getting married at the racecourse.
