Central Park in New York City
Central Park is a romantic and picturesque location to hold a wedding ceremony. We offer all-inclusive Central Park Wedding Ceremony packages, and we take care of everything from your permit to your flowers.
Some places we recommend for weddings include the Conservatory Garden, Ladies Pavilion, Turtle Pond, Cherry Hill, Cop Cot, Belvedere Castle, Wagner Cove, and Summit Rock. The best way to narrow down your choices is by the number of guests that will be attending. Each location has a specific guest limit. The maximum number of guests allowed for a ceremony in Central Park is 100.
Please keep in mind that chairs, tents, tables, rugs, runners, throwing of rice, birdseed, flowers, and confetti, or anything else that will affect the soil is not allowed in Central Park. There are exceptions to the use of chairs for those who cannot stand for long periods of time. Alcohol, candles, or amplified sound are not allowed. Acoustic music is permitted.
Please take a look at our customizable packages. The easiest way to get started is to put down an initial 5% wedding package deposit to get your planning started. All payments can be made safely and securely through our site.
If you are planning your own ceremony in Central Park, please read the following information: One of the most popular locations, the Conservatory Garden, located at Fifth Avenue and 105th Street, requires a permit for ceremonies and photography sessions. You can apply for your permit for the Conservatory Garden at the Central Park Conservancy by calling 212-360-2766 or you can download the application online.
For any other location in Central Park, you can download the application from the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation’s website. If you plan to have less than 20 people at your wedding ceremony in a location outside of the Conservatory Garden, you are not required to purchase a permit. However, we highly recommend getting a permit to guarantee your space.
