Top 7 Wedding Venues in Victoria, BC

My favourite wedding venues and locations in Victoria

My clients are often overwhelmed with too many gorgeous locations around Victoria to have their wedding. 

What makes this choice even harder is that many venues that look great in real life don’t look as good in photos.

That’s why I put together this list of hand-selected list of my favourite places to photograph weddings around Victoria, BC. 

These classy venues have the most amazing photo opportunities that look as good in photos as they do in real life. You can choose any one of them with confidence, knowing that your photos will be great!
