From a small elopement style weddings to a 150 guest wedding, Oak Bay Beach Hotel has so much to offer. Not only is it the most stunning resort with the most epic views, but it is recognized as the #1 hotel in Canada! So, you can only imagine how amazing a wedding would be here. And from past experiences of capturing a beautiful wedding here, I can confirm that it is an exceptional wedding venue. The inside of the hotel as a more vintage and traditional feel which makes for some super stunning and dramatic wedding photos. But it is also super modern and bright which is perfect for capturing those happy images too.  In this blog I discuss all this venue has to offer if you are considering an Oak Bay Beach Hotel Wedding and I’ll share one of my favorite weddings that I have shot there!

Beautiful Ceremony at The Seaside Gardens

Oak Bay Beach Hotel has one of the most stunning and luxury ceremony sites on Vancouver Island. With epic panoramic views of the Juan De Fuca Strait and Mount Baker, the Seaside Gardens is truly one of the most beautiful ceremony sites. The area for the ceremony is quite simple allowing you to bring in your own decor and flowers to really make it your own. What I love about this ceremony site is that even if you keep it simple with the decor, it is still feels so grand because of the views. This space is also perfect for an outdoor summer or spring wedding as it doubles as a cocktail reception area as well that can acommodate up to 120 guests.
