Weddings / Civil ceremonies

Pavilions of Harrogate is a venue fit for a Queen and we will make sure you have the fairy tale wedding you’ve always dreamed of.

With access to the very best wedding planners, flower suppliers, entertainment and caterers, Pavilions of Harrogate is renowned for offering first class service.

Set on 200 acres of stunning showground, we also have an enviable selection of spots to celebrate your special day indoors or outdoors. It could be in one of our 14 rooms catering for 10 to 450 guests, to the private lawns, Presidents Balcony or White Pavilion for outdoor weddings.

The sweeping views from the Presidents Balcony look out across the showground, perfect for photographs and drinks reception.

There’s also our White Pavilion which is fully licensed for outdoor wedding ceremonies.

A number of rooms within the Pavilions of Harrogate are also licensed for civil ceremonies so that we can be flexible and offer the whole package – from exchanging vows to the celebration afterwards.

Flexibility is a key part of our ethos and we will go that extra mile to create a bespoke wedding package to suit your every wish.


Make your wedding fit for a Queen and upgrade to the stunning Swale and Esk Suite which hosts the Royal Family when they attend the Great Yorkshire Show. The Swale Room is licensed for Civil ceremonies and the Esk Room makes the most perfect dressing room, ideal for freshening up before your special day begins. Both rooms have access onto the Presidents Balcony with spectacular views over the showground and beyond.


We offer a great choice of spaces that are licensed for civil ceremonies as well as the wedding breakfast and evening event. We can host intimate weddings for 50 guests, medium size celebrations of up to 240 guests or for large weddings we can accommodate up to 450 guests of your family and friends to share this special occasion.  We also offer an outdoor venue for your civil ceremony – The White Pavilion on the Presidents Lawn.

Outdoor Weddings

A romantic and chic addition to Pavilions of Harrogate, a pathway sweeps up to the White Pavilion which can be surrounded by seating for wedding guests. The White Pavilion itself features special flooring and electrics so music can be played while couples exchange vows or perhaps twinkly lights could be draped around the outside to create that extra special magic.
