Weddings at Lyndhurst

Imagine your perfect wedding day!
You step out from between double castle doors and walk down the aisle with your guest seated on the sweeping great lawn or you step through gates into the secluded rose garden to meet your future spouse beneath a rose covered pergola. You take wedding photographs within century old weeping Beech trees, so old and so large their limbs touch the ground. You join your guests for cocktails on the mansion veranda with views sweeping down to the Hudson. You and your guests retire to the carriage house for dinner and dancing and evening conversation in the flower-filled courtyard.

Sophisticated couples enjoy the privacy and beauty of Lyndhurst’s sixty-seven acres on the widest part of the Hudson River, only thirty-five minutes from New York City and easily accessible from multiple transportation hubs. Whether your wedding is elegant and formal, or simple and rustic, Lyndhurst will make you feel like a princess in this unique castle setting. This unforgettable venue is unique and your friends and family will rave about your wedding forever.

Lyndhurst also has specific expertise in handling elegant weddings for multi-cultural couples, destination weddings, gay weddings, kosher weddings, Hindu weddings and exclusive small weddings for mature couples with wedding parties of 40 or under. Our friendly, experienced, conscientious staff is committed to assisting you and your wedding planner in organizing every detail of your event.
