We Love a Love Story
What could be more romantic than to celebrate your wedding in a landmark, listed hotel? At The Principal York wedding couples have been celebrating their nuptials - and more recently tying the knot itself - for generations. Indeed we have known three generations from the same family pose for the wedding photograph on the same spot of the grand staircase that sweeps down to the lobby. This sense of history is written into the fabric of the hotel, built in 1878 of honey-coloured Scarborough brick and local Tadcaster stone. Set in over three acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, the hotel looks across the city of York to the 3rd-century Minster. Stunning Victorian architecture, manicured lawns, and views out to the York Minster makes us a perfect setting for your wedding day. Your dedicated wedding planner will help you realise your vision for the day, recommending the best photographers, florists and entertainment providers and liaising with them on your behalf, as well as working with our chefs to create your perfect menu. To get in touch please send an email to our wedding co-ordinator - or complete the enquiry form below.
