The magic of a Christmas wedding in York

We’ve recently had the pleasure of hosting some fabulously festive Christmas weddings here at Bedern Hall. What’s the secret to making a seasonal wedding spectacular?

Bedern winter

  1. Stunning setting

Our Medieval refectory is nothing less than breath-taking already. With a sprinkle of snow or touch of frost, it becomes truly magnificent. Our age-old original beams, stone walls and period features add character in abundance. A little bit of Christmas magic in York truly brings the venue alive.

  1. Simple is spectacular

Since Bedern Hall is so beautiful, we think the room already speaks for itself. Just a touch of red, green or white from some flowers is enough to lend a festive feeling. Our recently married couple did this perfectly with some well-chosen bows and sprigs on the furniture. Keeping it simple makes for a fine atmosphere, but it also saves you money. At this already expensive time of year, it’s important to keep the cash for what can’t be compromised.

  1. Festive food and drink

Tis the season of mince pies, mulled wine and roasted chestnuts. A Christmas wedding should mean no less! After a wedding ceremony here at Bedern Hall, we can serve your guests a delicious spread of Christmas canapes to evoke the taste of a much-loved Christmas dinner. From pigs in blankets to stuffing and cranberry sauce, we can customise your menu to suit your taste buds. And have you considered serving mulled cider at your reception? It’s delicious!

  1. Family atmosphere

Christmas is truly the time for everyone to come together. Having an in-house catering team here at Bedern Hall means we do this like no one else! We know every nook and cranny of the hall and will warmly welcome you and your wedding guests to our home. We’ll be able to set the room just as you wish and make sure you’re comfortable.


We don’t offer set packages at Bedern because we want to make your wedding exactly as you wish! Every couple will have the opportunity to discuss with our team what we can do to make your day spectacular. Find out more here.

  1. Enjoy the magic of York

York is always beautiful, but at Christmas, it’s absolutely magical! Did you know it snows every Friday in December at 5pm on the Shambles? Then there are the many Christmas carol services, not only at York Minster but at the many churches that surround Bedern Hall. The Christmas markets and craft fairs are the perfect places to pick up a present or two. All this means your Christmas wedding guests will be suitably entertained while staying in York.
