Weddings and Civil Partnerships

A Celebration with a Difference

City Cruises York would be delighted to be a part of your special day. Our friendly sales team can in fact help you to plan your last night of freedom, your perfect wedding day, or both! We have a wide range of ideas for you as you start to plan the rest of your lives together:

  • Hen Parties:

    Enjoy your last night of freedom with your girlfriends on a Party Nights Afloat cruise, or Private Hen Party Charter. 

  • Wedding Receptions:

    We are proud to be one of York’s most unique wedding reception venues, offering ever-changing views, an exciting and different experience for your guests and first class service every time.

City Cruises York offer you a choice of wedding reception venues with a difference; a unique venue with constantly changing views, cruising from Historic York and beyond through the stunning, surrounding countryside.

Our fleet of modern river boats are available for both wedding and civil partnership receptions in the daytime or evening, nearly all year around.
We can accommodate between 20 and 120 guests on board our fleet and arrange the perfect, bespoke wedding package for you both with a wonderful selection of welcome drinks, delicious catering menus ranging from canapés to exquisite formal dinners and entertainment options such as professional DJs, bands and even roulette tables.

Your boat will be immaculately presented on the day, with complimentary decorations consisting of:

  • 6 White Balloons on the Vessel Entrance Gate

  • White Ribbon over the Bow

  • Just Married Banner

  • Just Married Life Rings

The “Just Married” life rings present a fantastic opportunity for some quirky photographs of the happy couple on the day. You can also choose from our selection of balloons and floral displays.

Your skipper and crew will go above and beyond to ensure that you and your guests have a celebration and a cruise that you will remember forever. Our friendly and professional Private Charter team would be delighted for you both to visit our office for a private viewing of one or more of our fleet and to discuss your special day with us over a coffee.

We can arrange for you to view the boat between 9:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. on weekdays year round, and between the same times on Saturdays from May to September.

Alternatively, you are welcome to complete our online enquiry form and one of our team will give you a call. We look forward to welcoming you aboard.
