Bow Bridge in Central Park

Bow Bridge Central Park Information

Bow Bridge is possibly Central Park’s most well-known muse for photographers.  You might recognize it from its starring role in many movies and television shows.  The view from the bridge is also iconic to Central Park, with the Lake, and then the Manhattan skyline towering above the trees.

This location is a very public place to get married, but it does offer a spectacular backdrop.  Photos taken from the bridge itself with the skyline behind the couple are stunning, as are photos taken from the grass across the Lake from it, with the couple on this beautiful bridge.  Even with an event permit, people will still pass by your wedding ceremony if you hold it on this bridge, so I would not recommend it to larger groups.  It has the benefit of being very close to the major areas that are popular for photographs.

This beautiful bridge spans the Lake’s narrowest point and links Cherry Hill to the sprawling woodland of the Ramble. The bridge is named for its shape – reminiscent of a violin’s bow. It is the oldest cast-iron bridge in the Park, and the second oldest in America.

Below are some wedding photographs from Bow Bridge.  These photos are intended to show the location in as much useful detail as possible for any couples considering a wedding there.  Please feel free to email me,  if you would like any further advice or information on this location.
