North Yorkshire, YO62 5BJ

Nestled in the picturesque market town of Helmsley, North Yorkshire, The Black Swan is a charming four-star boutique hotel and the perfect place to hold your wedding. With an eclectic mix of styles, and architecture which dates back to the 15th Century, the hotel is now a charming, unique venue.

The market town of Helmsley is picture-perfect, offering numerous backdrops for your cherished wedding photographs. Helmsley Castle, Duncombe Park and the delightful babbling brook which runs through the town, all look wonderful in romantic photos.

More brilliant than we could possibly have hoped
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs McAllen, on 28 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 31 Mar 2017

Everyone had a wonderful time, enjoyed some lovely food served impeccably by the brilliant staff. Nicola worked so hard in the weeks before the big day, making sure no detail was missed, and along with Grant made the day go smoothly with nothing too much to ask. They made our special day even more brilliant than we could possibly have hoped for.
