The bed and breakfast specialises in a variety of wedding packages so if your numbers change they can easily accommodate you. Just try to give them as much notice as possible.
The surrounding gardens are a picturesque and inviting place to have wedding photos take. For the best shots have your photographer find some quiet spots in the gardens and around the gazebo.
The Gazebo is perfect for vows and very romantic as well. The gardens that surround it provide the perfect backdrop too. For tips on how best to organise and decorate this space you should talk to one of Willowpond's Catering and Events managers who can show you some tricks.Seated Dinner and Cocktail reception options
Willowpond has room for anywhere up to and including 160 guests. Given the driving time this might not be enough for you. But because wedding escapes are generally smaller than big city receptions, this is probably more than enough for your ceremony. You might need to cull a few of the stragglers.
The Marine Dr Golf Club is a perfectly located at the bottom end of Yew St and is a quietly upscale Vancouver wedding ceremony and reception venue. The Kerrisdale club was established over 75 years ago and retains the "Players Club" mantle to this day despite being one of the most exclusive in the Lower Mainland.
Ceremony Location and Services
The club is a short dr from the city centre. The patio is amazing during the summer months, with sunset views over the course. If you have a mid-week or mid-morning rehearsal its all included in the cost of the wedding ceremony as are registry signing facilities and all the set-up costs.
Ceremonies are usually in the evening to avoid golfers on the course and in the clubhouse. Talk to Adriana, the Catering and Events manager, to get the most out of the venue in terms of decorating and furnishings.
Reception in the Ballroom
The main ballroom seats up to 300 people easily but is still an intimate setting despite the size and scope. But the size of the ballroom means its very practical and easy to alter to your taste. On a fine evening with a great sunset you'll even get a faint glow over the venue, the perfect time for vows or speeches.
Food and Beverage
In-house catering is all provided as part of any wedding reception package so everything will be taken care of. Consider saving money too by having signature cocktails served for your guests. If you are considering a Vancouver golf course wedding, this is definitely one location you will want to visit!
