We held our wedding at York Maze on June 10th 2017. It was the perfect venue for us but the day was made by the incredible team at the Amazing Wedding Company.
The “Congratulations” card on the day and the lovely e-mail we received this week are the kind of simple but so thoughtful touches that characterised the whole event. From our arrival early Friday morning for “set-up” to our departure on Sunday it is hard to imagine what more the team, Vikki and Jason in particular, ...could have done to make the wedding more perfect. Whether dealing with the complications of our own draft beer bar or the truly amazing dressing of our cake of cheese after we forgot to bring the figs, every detail was taken care of completely professionally yet with a total understanding of the “flavour” of the occasion we wanted to create.
During Saturday Vikki seemed to possess the twin powers of telepathy and teleporting. We never saw her until 1 second before we needed her to do something, at which point she magically appeared next to one us. It seems inconceivable that she was only a few weeks (and a handful of weddings) into her role as the Maze's wedding co-ordinator.
A number of our guests have described our wedding as the best they’ve ever been to, and it was certainly the best we’ve ever been to! We’ve also had lost of positive comments about the food – both the pies and the hog roast were superb. One guest who came over from Holland and is a retired chef was described by his partner as “in 7th heaven” as he tucked into the hog roast, and he is not an easy man to please.
We heartily recommend York Maze as a wedding venue, but of course you'll never have a wedding as perfect as ours!

The facilities we have are a range of brick and timber barns, connected to a south facing wooden terrace with a removeable frontage. The larger timber barn has a stage at one end ideal for bands or DJ's. The barns are licenced for marriage and can seat up to 200 people for the ceremony. We can seat up to 140 under the terrace barn for dining and many more for the evening function if you wish!
The hire of the site includes all the buildings, toilets, power, heat, etc. as well as the tables and benches for dining. You also get the use of our play areas for any younger ones at the wedding. When you hire the maze you effectively get a 3 day hire, the day before to set up and the day after to take down any decorations. Guests are welcome to camp on site if they wish!
We only hold weddings out of our open season, so weddings are available in April, May and June only. If you have the imagination, we can make it happen!!
Wedding viewings are by appointment only please contact The amazing wedding company for available times.
