    A Dream Come True

    I have wanted to have my wedding at the Banff Springs Hotel since I was five years old. It was a dream come true when we were able to book the Banff Springs as our venue. We were married on the Upper Terrace which was an absolutely stunning back drop to our ceremony. The food was perfect - it was without a doubt the best meal we’ve ever had at a wedding. But above all, the staff were so kind and accommodating to us and all our guest.

    So scrumptious

    We had afternoon tea at the Castle for our wedding reception. The food was absolutely amazing and there was ample and we had to get doggie bags to go as there was so much. Would recommend eating here for sure.

    Emilie D'Amours handled our reception at the Fairmont Banff Springs for our small wedding in May of 2017. We had eloped with immediate family to Canada from Texas site unseen. Emilie was amazing start to finish! The hotel staff and service were amazing apart from the spa however, Emilie went above and beyond to make our wedding day PERFECT! The reception was perfect, dinner and cake tasted AMAZING!! Highly recommend!

    Castle in the rockies!

    We held our wedding ceremony and dinner at the Fairmont, and even from the moment you walk in was amazing and a dream come true. The room was huge, the service was great and the food delicious. The guest services team did amazing job accommodating our requests. The only note is that during the hotel check-in, guests services booking made an error to only have one person per room vs the four we had requested and paid for. The service team fixed it the next day but it was still a bit of an inconvenience especially since we had booked at least two years in advance. But nonetheless, the weekend was magical, and looking forward to coming back!

    Gorgeous venue

    Married on the terrace outside with the most spectacular views and had our reception in the Ivor petrik room. I would recommend taking photos in the mt Stephen hall as it’s one of the most beautiful rooms I have ever seen. This whole hotel in general, inside and out is just breathtaking

    Simply the best!

    The most gorgeous venue for a wedding there is! We just had issues with getting a hold of the person in-charge of catering a few times, but everything was sorted out. Services rendered were excellent.

    Amazing venue

    It’s expensive but worth it. The mountain view is breath taking. The food was amazing. Everything went mostly smooth. The rooms were incorrect but they fixed it for us. Although they said the outdoor terrace would be private and there was hotel guests outside taking pictures during our wedding and I wasn’t too happy about that.
