One of our most popular locations within Central Park is Bow Bridge. It is a very romantic and pictureque place to hold your wedding. The bridge has been featured in a lot of films and TV shows over the years and has a vast scenic view of the Manhattan skyline towering over the trees and Central Park.
Nearest Park Entrance - 77th Street and Central Park West
Bookable 1 year out.
No confetti is allowed.
Same Sex Marriages and renewal of vows services are available
This area can be a very high traffic area and whilst we will pull a park permit for this area, we are not able to prevent people from walking over the bridge.
Ceremonies on the bridge are idea for just the couple but for larger groups we would suggest one of the landing areas around the bridge, so you have the bridge as the backdrop for your wedding.
