Your Wedding Day

Bespoke, elegant and romantic are all words that sum up the perfect wedding day that aspires to become the best day of your life. The Black Swan is a truly unique wedding venue that can offer you just that. Our name alone unmasks a picture of rare beauty that is characterised in the classic style and historical architecture of our distinctive 4 star boutique hotel.

Located in the picturesque market town of Helmsley in North Yorkshire, we are surrounded by the breathtaking landscapes of the county’s famous moors that add to the charming English aura, which forms part of the special experience we provide here. Offering a warming invitation of snug armchairs and big open log fires during colder climes, alongside the romantic charm of the quintessentially English walled gardens that glisten in the sunshine come summer, at The Black Swan we offer beauty and tranquillity all year round.

Our beautifully designed rooms and restaurant mirror both style and comfort, creating the perfect environment for a variety of different wedding styles. The bespoke wedding packages we offer have been specially designed to cater for your specific requirements, whereby the smallest attention to detail never goes unnoticed. With carefully crafted wedding menus showcasing sumptuous plates of food from breakfast through to the evening, and with drinks that have been specially paired to match the flavours of each dish, we invite you and your guests to indulge in the memorable experience that’s in the making.

Whether your guest list is 50 or 90 of your nearest and dearest, we can provide an experience where style compliments comfort and indulgence blends with romantic charm to create a day that is memorable as much for them as it will be for you.

For more information or to discuss your personal requirements, call us on 01439 770466 or drop us a line at – we would love to hear from you!
