Canada isn’t on the mind for those who want a big wedding, but there is so much to look at for a beautiful wedding, big or small. A romantic wedding here is probably quite affordable and rich because of its historic buildings and venues they have to acquire all tastes. Here are some of the best venue for a wedding in Canada.
Starting in the East, on the island of Newfoundland, the most wonderful place for a low-key venue separate from the cities is at the Fogo Island Inn. Traditional Newfoundland cuisine is served in their dining room and features a rooftop terrace and a large meeting space with open views to the ocean. In Quebec, The Canadian Museum of History at Gatineau (just across the river from Ontario, Ottawa) can hold up to 1400 guests in their rooms including the small Panorama Lounge to the Grand Hall, which features the world’s largest indoor collection of totem poles. 10 minutes outside of Quebec City, the Hôtel de Glacefeatures large crystalline ice sculptures for a simplistic 40 guests who can stay in the hotel.
In Ontario, Cambium Farms is a perfect setting for a country wedding with its exposed beams and rafters and open ceiling space and features a bar, lounge, and DJ booth. It was built in the 1870s and remains close to its roots. With its ivy-covered stone walls and Gothic arches, the Hart House on the University of Toronto campus is a splendid spot; the Casa Loma is another medieval-like building in Toronto popular for weddings with its three main rooms and stained-glass ceiling. The Kortright Centre in Woodbridge is an environmental education centre with a beautiful outdoor venue for the ceremony and an indoor space, the Forest Gallery, with large windows overlooking the greenery. It can serve up to 200 guests.
Moving more westward, Alberta features the Fairmont Châteauon Lake Louise with beautiful glaciers and lake. The Storm Mountain Lodge in Banff National Park is secluded for an intimate ceremony of 30 guests. Reaching the Pacific in British Columbia, the Nita Lake Lodge outside of Vancouver has incredible mountain views and lavish dining room and ballroom perfect for a summer or winter wedding. The Merridale Cidery & Distillery at Cobble Hill features a rustic farmhouse with a beautiful backyard of orchards. Finally, under the Northern Lights in the Northwest Territories, the Aurora Village Lodge and Blachford Lake Lodge can bring in 400 guests for a very outdoor experience under a bright sky.
Hopefully, you can call your wedding caterers in Toronto, Quebec, Calgary, or wherever to fill in the food and drink these incredible venues. Across the country, in the city and out in the wild, Canada has some of the best exterior settings for a wedding that you cannot find anywhere else in North America. Blending in with some European taste (being part of the Commonwealth), these wedding venues provide Canada’s finest scenery to complete the romantic story.
