We have been so fortunate to shoot at some of the BEST vancouver wedding locations! Brides- if you are on the hunt for a vancouver ceremony venue or reception location, here are some amazing wedding venues highlighted to help your search!
Jesse & Nicole added their personal detail to the elegant Hycroft Mansion for their reception. The Hycroft Mansion is a gorgeous Vancouver venue both for inside and outside wedding Ceremonies and Receptions. There are tons of different Character-filled rooms with plenty of space for an awesome cocktail hour! The outdoor patio is a long open space that fits a really cool banquet style seating table setup and there is plenty of room to roam around on the grounds and to plan little games and fun things to do for the wedding. Not to mention, it’s an amazing venue for photography as every corner has another unique look! The basement has a great open area for dancing and an attached bar and sitting area that lets you escape the loud music for a bit. I love the layout!
Ashley & Joe celebrated their winter wedding at the landmark Heritage Hall. It is another great place where you can do both the ceremony & reception. Just outside of Downtown, parking isn’t too hard to find, and the look of the building is great! Inside there are a few pillars that add to the look, but give you something to think creatively with for your table setup.
Cheryl & John had their reception at the uniquely hip “The Metro”. It’s a really trendy venue that has a VERY different seating style! There are some high tables in the middle, perfect for cocktails and snacks, and then booths around the outside which are large and cozy. This is a great “mingle-ready” venue and was amazing for the dance party! Just up from New Westminster Quay, there are TONS of great photo opportunities in and around here!
Dustin & Roxanne had their reception at the False Creek Community Centre located right in Granville Island. One of the best parts about this venue is that there are so many great photo locations in walking distance and all around the venue. The open beam ceiling and wall of windows make this venue look fantastic. Just be prepared to put in a little bit of decorating effort as it can look like a gym if you don’t do some creative placement of decorations. it’s a BIG open room, and a great location all around!
Kim & Ryan’s ceremony & reception was at the Brix. This is place has originality with a rustic, urban-chic feel for more intimate weddings. AH-FREAKIN-MAZING food is the standout at this place, along with a great atmosphere and decor. You don’t have to do much to make this place look great! Space in the courtyard can be tight, so make sure your # of guests is kept to a minimum for this one.
Troy & Aimee had their beautiful garden wedding at the scenic UBC Rose Garden. This gorgeous Vancouver Ceremony Venue shows off Vancouver’s beauty by showcasing the Pacific Ocean and beautiful mountains as a backdrop. Parking is easy, but is paid. There are PLENTY of great places on the UBC grounds, and within a close drive for photos, which makes this an ideal spot for tight timelines.
Troy & Aimee had their reception at the Vancouver Rowing club. It is a great Vancouver reception location right on the water at the entrance of the infamous Stanley Park. A great night city view and close access to Stanley Park makes this a great place for wedding party photos as well!
Kyle & Jenna at the scenic Grouse Mountain. They had their ceremony on the outside deck and the reception just inside at the Timber Room. No location says “BC” like Grouse Mountain! Make sure to plan out the timing of the wedding keeping the Gondola trip in mind as it takes some time to get up the mountain.
Keith and Jessica were Married at the Diamond Alumni Centre (D.A.C.) up at SFU. SFU is possibly my favorite place to photograph a wedding party because of the HUGE variety of photo locations. The D.A.C. has two floors, typically the lower being used for ceremonies and the upper being setup for receptions. The view from the balcony is amazing, and parking for everyone is close and free. You’ll get an AMAZING meal here, and the venue looks great as is…so adding your touches will just make it look better!
Josh & Brittany celebrated their special day at the gorgeous Westwood Plateau. Located right at the golf course, this Coquitlam venue has a “Whistler” feel to it with the beautiful building made of hand-crafted timber and stone, and the food is exceptional! The garden area is fantastic for outdoor ceremonies, and the indoor ceremony location is also gorgeous (and located just off of the main reception hall).
Ryan & Michelle Hartt also held their late night reception at Westwood Plateau…
Minnekhada Lodge is tucked away in Port Coquitlam, BC by the gorgeous dykes and mountain views! It is an intimate wedding location, perfect for those like Kyle & Sarah who added so much romantic, vintage details. There are rooms for bridal prep, food service, bar, etc. and the whole vibe of the lodge is very old fashioned and cute.
What a gorgeous, scenic location for a wedding! With an amazing view of the BC mountains, Golden Eagle is tucked away in this picturesque private setting. There is a perfect room for receptions and an amazing view for outdoor ceremonies.
Swan-E-Set Bay Resort & Golf Club is truly a high-end resort in such a private, gorgeous setting surrounded by the beautiful BC Mountains. They have an intimate area near the lawn for your ceremony and the grand ballroom is perfect for an elegant reception. You will not run out of beautiful photo opportunities here…only time to get them all in! Oh, and DEFINITELY take the golf carts for a spin!

Greg & Nichole tied the know at Meadow Gardens is located in central Pitt Meadows, directly over the Golden Ears Bridge. There are lots of great places to take photographs around this golf course as well as some great nearby spots. The rooms are completely customizable for size as there are 3 in a row that can be combined by moving walls. A beautiful outdoor and indoor location for ceremonies and receptions.
Whonnock Lake is another character filled location, right on the lake! With lots of natural surroundings, a great lake view and beach, this is a perfect spot for a bit of an outdoor enthusiast. It’s a bit of a drive, but is nice and private!

Trevor & Sarah recently held their vintage-style wedding reception at the famous Fort Langley Community Hall. Right in the heart of the little town of Fort Langley, this rustic hall is surrounded by unique and fun settings to shoot wedding photos. The main hall is a large open room with a stage on one end and a loft/kitchen on the other end. This is a perfect match of beauty and function. I love shooting at this hall!
The Redwoods golf course has to be one of my favorite locations because of how versatile it is with the surrounding areas for photos. You’re so close to beautiful spots like Fort Langley and Derby Reach, as well as having a fantastic property for photos right on the course. There are a few other stand outs at this location, like the Monster Truck Gold Cart! The outdoor patio for ceremonies and the tent covered patio for receptions is a great combination for a beautiful wedding no matter how the weather turns out.
