New York City, the Big Apple, the city that never sleeps, the bright lights of Broadway and towering screens of Times Square, the hustle and bustle of Fifth Avenue, the fashion capital of the world, the iconic skyscrapers that command the skyline – if you’re a city girl, NYC is hard to beat when it comes to looking for a sleek, metropolitan destination wedding location.

 

And what better than to say “I Do” in the most romantic part of city – in the tranquil oasis of Central Park? There’s no denying it is one of the most famous locales too…

It’s where Carrie and Aidan go their separate ways in a real tear jerker moment at Columbus Circle, it’s where Carrie and Big meet for lunch and end up in Central Park Lake, it’s where Carrie and Miranda have lunch in the Ladies Pavilion in the first SATC movie, and the list goes on! But if you’re not a ‘Sex And The City’ fan, it’s also the most filmed location in the world! Need we say more?

 

If you fancy getting married in Manhattan, our wedding planning friends from Wed In Central Park are here to help with a great guide to getting married in Central Park….

 

Wed In Central Park:

Many couples come to New York City to get married.  There is a vast choice of locations for wedding ceremonies in the city, ranging from the sport fields to City Hall to one of the city’s beautiful parks.  One very popular location for both locals and visitors alike is Central Park.

 

Central Park was built in the 1850s, and the Upper East Side and Upper West Side areas of New York City grew up around it.  You can still see the mansions of this period lining the streets along the borders of the Park.  There are several structures within Central Park that lend themselves to weddings, depending on your preferences when it comes to size of party, privacy and distance from the entrances to the Park.  Be prepared to walk at least a little if you are planning a wedding in Central Park!

 

Ladies Pavilion:

One of the most popular locations is the Ladies Pavilion, a cast-iron structure with slate roof.  It was originally designed in 1871 as a shelter for trolley passengers.  It is no longer in it’s original location, and is now beside the Lake, offering iconic views of the water, with trees and tall buildings behind it.

Wagner Cove:

Another popular location for the smaller party is a rustic wooden shelter called Wagner Cove.  Many couples choose this because it offers some privacy, since it is hidden away by the Lake down some stone steps.

Shakespeare Garden:

Some couples prefer to be amongst the flowers, and at the right time of year the Shakespeare Garden is perfect for that.  It is a shaded, out of the way spot named for the famed English poet and playwright because the flowers in it are all mentioned in his plays and poems.  These locations tend to be popular with parties under twenty guests.

Real bride review:

“Where do we start with Joe! If we had to sum him up in one word it would be ‘fun’. He made our day so exciting and memorable.”

 

“We met Joe at The Plaza Hotel before our ceremony and he went through our ideas for the photo tour and told us what would realistically work and what wouldn’t. Joe knew that our brief was to capture a special day in New York City and he certainly did that. Throughout the day Joe’s visionary was incredible and he had us doing things we never thought we would be doing on our wedding day.”
