The NCEM provides a stunning and unusual venue for your wedding reception or celebration event. Our medieval, grade-one listed building is set within private and peaceful gardens and can offer the perfect setting for your special occasion.
We can accommodate up to 120 for a seated meal and 150 for an evening/informal reception. We work with Bradshaws of York, Caterers of Distinction, who will be on hand to create delicious dishes for your sit-down meal or buffet. 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 wrought iron candelabra and stone arches 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 live band or DJ. The idyllic setting, both inside and out, provides a perfect backdrop for your memorable photographs.
