Call us for prices & availability

Overview

Your immersive New York wedding day will begin with a picturesque, gorgeous wedding held in Central Park, followed by an exclusive limousine photo tour, taking in the sites of the city’s most famous landmarks, ending your special day with a stunning dinner cruise on the Hudson River.

Central Park is famous for its wonderful verdant scenery, tranquil atmosphere and iconic status as the slice of tranquil paradise in one of the world’s most fantastic cities. Following your beautiful park wedding, travel in style and have photo opportunities outside New York’s most famous sites, including Times Square, the Flatiron and Empire State Building.

Your special day will wind down with the incredibly romantic Hudson’s Dinner Cruise, which offers one of the most luxurious, intimate experiences in the world. Dinner is served as part of a two-hour cruise which soaks up the sensational vistas of New York’s skyline; you’ll sail down the Hudson and up to the Freedom Tower, and far enough north to catch a glimpse of the United Nations’ magnificent architecture. The ship will then turn around and set sail back to Pier 81, where you will witness wonderful views of the Statue of Liberty, as well as the Empire State, Chrysler Building and other hidden gems along the way.

When you get there:

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 will also have a pre wedding meeting with the New York Wedding Planner to go through all aspects of the wedding, including how to obtain your wedding licence.  The meeting will normally take place at your hotel.

You must both apply in person to the New York City Clerk’s Office, Marriage Licence Bureau at 141 Worth Street, New York City.  The cost of the licence is included in your wedding package.  The City Clerk’s Office is open Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays) and you need to have at least 24 hours grace period from obtaining your licence before the wedding day.
