About National Centre for Early Music wedding venue

The NCEM provides a stunning and unusual venue for your wedding reception or celebration party. Our medieval, grade-one listed building is set within peaceful and private gardens and can offer the perfect setting for your special occasion.

We can accommodate up to 120 for a seated meal and 150 for a drinks reception. We work with Bradshaws of York, Caterers of Distinction, who will be on hand to create delicious dishes for your buffet or sit-down meal. They offer an extensive range of options for food and wine to suit your tastes and can cater for any special dietary requirements.

On the day you will have exclusive use of the venue and our friendly and welcoming staff will work with you to ensure that your occasion runs smoothly and is enjoyed by everyone. You might choose to enter through our stunning Norman arch on the south side or via our contemporary foyer with views of the garden. With plenty of natural light, the church offers a bright, welcoming atmosphere and the stone arches and wrought iron candelabras give a sense of grandeur. At night, the candlelit church offers a beautiful and intimate setting for dining or dancing and the excellent acoustics are perfect for a DJ or live band. The setting inside and out provides a beautiful backdrop for your memorable photographs.

Just lovely!

We cannot stress strongly enough how perfect this venue was for us - the garden for games, the flexible space inside, the feeling of being 'different' etc. And the service was fantastic - all the staff were so friendly, welcoming and helpful. All we can say is thanks VERY much!...
