Curving gracefully over the neck of the Pond at 59th Street, Gapstow is one of the iconic bridges of Central Park. Located in Central Park South and Fifth Avenue, the bridge offers fantastic views of the surrounding cityscape. Facing south, you can see the famed Plaza Hotel and distinctive New York skyscrapers rising from above the Park's trees. Look southward in the winter and you'll see Wollman Rink's twirling skaters.  Here, at Gapstow you will have your New York wedding.  Then, travel in style and have photo opportunities outside some of New York’s most famous sites including Tiffany & Co on Fifth Avenue (breakfast not included!) Times Square, the famous Rockefeller Center and iconic Times Square before being driven in style to The Plaza hotel for a champagne toast or cocktail in the Rose Bar.  If you have any wedding guests, then can wait for you while you complete your Fifth Avenue tour at The Plaza.

Wedding Days and Times

Additional Information

We would recommend a 5 night stay in New York.  At least 24 hours before your wedding day you need to apply for a New York marriage licence.  This is a very simple process which you can complete as a couple together.  You must allow for a full 24 hours to pass from obtaining the licence before you can get married. The cost of your licence is included in your wedding package.  You must both apply in person to the New York City Clerk’s Office, however this is a very simple and easy process and the New York wedding planner will go through all these details in your pre-wedding meeting when you arrive.

Vintage NY Taxi Offer

Make your day even more special by swapping your limousine transfer to your wedding, with an authentic NYC Checker taxicab and be the envy of passers-by.  When one thinks of the quintessential NYC taxicab, invariably the first thing that comes to most folks' minds is the Checker. Perhaps no other vehicle symbolizes the Manhattan experience better than this beloved yellow wonder, a kind of 'urban unicorn'. Upgrade cost from just £450. (Do remember that the taxi is for Bride & Groom only)
