York’s Premier Wedding Venue
Step into a world of gorgeous views, breathtaking gardens, and lush landscapes perfect for extravagant celebrations or intimate ceremonies. This beautiful 34 acre estate exudes an air of distinction and elegance to provide the perfect backdrop for your momentous event.
Historic Shady Lane is everything you’ve dreamed of: a setting made for creating memories. At our estate, the past welcomes you to dream up your future. Nestled within the century-old property are endless ceremony and reception site options available for your selection. A circular rose garden behind the main house is perfect for an intimate ceremony as well as the stone terrace in front of the greenhouse. If you are searching for a more rustic site, our sweeping lawn or the timber-framed gazebo on the court is the ideal place for your ceremony. The options are only limited by your imagination.
We also provide a tent for up to 250 guests which can be used however you please for your ceremony, reception, or both. The tent rests on the old tennis courts which sit atop a hill overlooking a panoramic view of the estate. While your guests are enjoying cocktail hour, you are free to roam the property with your photographer, taking advantage of the endless photo opportunities that Historic Shady Lane has to offer. You’ll be surrounded by timeless stone buildings, enduring trees and gardens, and a babbling stream which has flowed through generations of seasons. Make your own history at Historic Shady Lane.
