The Sun Pavilion is a beautiful wedding venue in Harrogate, nestled in the town’s Grade II listed Valley Gardens. We’re also just a short walk from the town centre. Whether you’re looking for that perfect spot to enjoy both your wedding ceremony and reception, or in need of somewhere to celebrate after your service elsewhere, The Sun Pavilion is a uniquely romantic venue with much to offer.

We’re enormously proud of our team here at The Sun Pavilion, rest assured that they will help as much as they can to make your wedding planning stress free and enjoyable.

Clare and the rest of the staff were so organised and relaxed that it meant we were too. The staff at the Sun Pavilion couldn’t do enough for us, not only on the day but on the lead up. The day ran seamlessly (even if the bride was fashionably late) and the food, atmosphere and set up was absolutely perfect.

India and Joel – Married at The Sun Pavilion, August 2020


The Sun Pavilion is licensed for Civil Ceremonies and we have a choice of two beautiful ceremony spots. Our terrace is perfect for outdoor wedding ceremonies during summer months or you might prefer to be married beneath our magnificent stained glass dome. Once you’ve booked with us you’ll need to contact the Harrogate Register Office to confirm the registrar. Contact them on 01609 780 780 or email registrars.harrogate@northyorks.gov.uk, they will talk you through their costs and information.


We can seat up to 150 guests for a wedding breakfast and we have a range of catering options available. We’ve chosen not to offer packages, we prefer to take a more bespoke approach allowing you to put together the food and drink to fit your style and budget. To find out more about our wedding menus, please contact us. Please note that we don’t allow external caterers at The Sun Pavilion, our in house team will take care of everything you need.


Once the formalities are over, it’s time to party (we know that’s everyone’s favourite part!) You choose the entertainment, we’ll make space for the dance floor and keep the drinks flowing. We have lots of options for evening food, our pizza van is a popular choice.


As we don’t offer packages we know it can be difficult at first glance to understand what a wedding here at The Sun Pavilion might cost you. As an example we have put together a wedding costing for 90 day guests and 120 evening guests…
