Planning your own ceremony?

One of the most popular locations, the Conservatory Garden, located at Fifth Avenue and 105th Street requires a permit for ceremonies and photography sessions. You can apply for your permit for the Conservatory Garden at the Central Park Conservancy by calling 212-360-2766 or you can download the application online. For any other location in Central Park, you can download the application from the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation's website. The maximum number of guests allowed for a ceremony in Central Park is 300. Each location has a specific guest limit. If you plan to have less than 20 people at your wedding ceremony in a location outside of the Conservatory Garden, you are not required to purchase a permit. However, we highly recommend getting a permit to guarantee your space. You can also find more information in our Ceremonies, Proposals, Receptions and Wedding FAQs sections.
