Under the Spire is a historic wedding venue combined with St. Mary's church in Kensington, Prince Edward Island. This idyllic heritage site overlooks Malpeque Bay and boasts lush lawns and stunning architecture. With two adjacent spaces for celebrating, it's the perfect venue for ceremonies, wedding breakfasts, and receptions. The church was built in 1902 by island architect William Critchlow. It's now decommissioned, and any denomination may use the facility with a private celebrant.
