As elegant as the bird itself, The Black Swan, is a unique wedding venue, which combines a collection of styles and architecture dating back to the fifteenth century. Today the hotel has been carefully transformed to create a stylish and distinctive four star boutique hotel, located in one of North Yorkshire’s prettiest market towns.

The hotel retains a wonderfully historic and romantic charm with snug lounges, open log fires, and a quintessentially English country walled gardens. Outside the hotel, Helmsley offers a wonderful selection of backdrops for your wedding photography including Helmsley Castle, Duncombe Park, and the babbling brook which runs through the town.

As individual as the hotel, your wedding will be the only wedding on the day making sure that we are able to give you all the care and attention that we can to make your special day exclusive to you.

To make things as easy for you as possible we’ve put together a selection of packages, however if you can’t find what you are looking for please feel free to contact our Wedding Co-ordinator who will be happy to help you with any questions that you might have.

P.S. Did you know that swans mate for life? A happy coincidence?
