Humans still want to get married?! If you’re one of those humans, or if you’ve already started the process of planning a wedding and would like to tie the knot in Vancouver, these venues are a much more creative alternative to getting married at City Hall.
- Aberthau Mansion – West Point Grey
If it’s a Tudor-style venue you seek, look no further than Aberthau Mansion. This community venue in West Point Grey has been host to several events, including weddings. Over 100 years old
- Sea-to-sky peek
Although not in Vancouver, saying “I do” from the top of a mountain with panoramic views of the coastal mountains and Howe Sound is worth the 30 minute drive up to Squamish to the Sea-to-Sky Gondola. Leave it to the team at the top to take care of everything from transportation, to the dj. Perfect for the #pnw couple.
- Dr. Sun-Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Gardens
If it’s a tranquil wedding surrounded by cultural elements that you seek, then a wedding at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden is a beautiful option.
- Pavillon at Queen Elizabeth Park
For a contemporary wedding experience, the Pavilion at Queen Elizabeth Park is a stunning venue to exchange your vows surrounded by lots of greenery and spectacular views. The glass walls and sky light (the building also features a retractable glass wall) provide the perfect natural light for photos – selfies included.
- Terminal City Club
Choose your dream space at the Terminal City Club. Whether it’s the Metropolitan Ballroom, or the President’s Ballroom, both venues are sure to leave a lasting impression on you and your guests.
- On a Boat
Because who wouldn’t want to get married on the high seas? Unless – you suffer from sea sickness. Lots of rental options in the city! Careful not to get too ship-faced. (did you catch that?)
- Pac Rim
If you’re a connoisseur of the finer things in life, celebrating your nuptials at the luxurious Fairmont Pac Rim is itself, a fine choice. Expect nothing but the best on what should be one of the best days of your life.
- Seasons in the Park
Any season is beautiful at Seasons in the Park. Whether you’re planning a summer or fall wedding, you’re guaranteed stunning panoramic views of the city in a warm, and elegant fine dining space.
- Vancouver Club
Celebrate your wedding in a classically charming yet modern space full of character – as is expected due to it being a 100-year-old building – that is sure to wow your guests. The service at Vancouver Club is also top-quality.
- UBC Boathouse
The closest thing to celebrating your wedding on a boat – without actually having to be on one and while still enjoying breathtaking water-front views.
- The Permanent
Buildings like The Permanent are far and few in this city and we’re fortunate to have access to this incredible heritage space, which first opened in 1907 and still has many neo-classical elements throughout. Conveniently located close to Waterfront and Stadium Chinatown skytrain stations.
- Vancouver Convention Centre
For a bigger wedding party, the Vancouver Convention Centre offers spacious rooms with lots of room for guests, all against a stunning backdrop!
- The Waterfall Building
On its own, the Waterfall Building in Kitsilano is a unique and beautiful combination of glass and concrete. Architecturally, it’s a work of art, which is fitting as it’s host to various art instillations, fashion shows, and exhibitions.
- Hycroft Mansion
If you’re unafraid of ghosts – just kidding, kind of – Hycroft Mansion is one of the most sought after wedding venues in the city. Make sure to book far ahead in advance.
- Rooftop Pavillon at Vancouver Art Gallery
We “can’t even” with this space. An airy space above the city, the Rooftop Pavillon at the Vancouver Art Gallery is what dreams are made of.
