This is an illustrated list of rustic wedding venues on Vancouver Island, BC (not including Greater Victoria) including wineries, cideries, and farms. I’ve included links to the venues and their wedding information pages, along with links to blog posts from weddings I’ve photographed there.
These venues are great for that rustic vibe, which can make an elegant event feel more organic and a fun event feel even more inviting. They’re perfect for having both ceremony and reception, along with a great portrait session, without even leaving the venue.
