About Le Belvedere
Le Belvedere is a wedding venue located in Wakefield, Quebec. Situated among the Canadian countryside, it is surrounded by natural beauty. Benefitting from breathtaking views, this property is also large enough to accommodate a variety of wedding events. Owned and operated by a family, it boasts a dedicated and professional team whose aim is to create wonderful wedding experiences for clients.
Facilities and Capacity
Boasting 8,000 square feet of event space, Le Belvedere is an expansive site that can host large or low-key celebrations. In fact, occasions with as few as 60 guests can be enjoyed as easily as a larger celebration for up to 200. Those who would like to get ready on site are free to make use of the get-ready rooms or The Garden House. The happy couple can say “I do” in the open air as their friends and family share the milestone moment on the terrace. A covered archway can be decorated with linens and florals as the happy pair exchange vows in front of their seated guests. A view of rolling green hills forms a suitable backdrop for the iconic moment. Alternatively, an indoor space can be arranged for those occasions when the weather is not cooperating.
As the day unfolds, the wedding party can make their way towards the banquet hall. Here, everyone can relax and unwind. Elegant chairs, banquet-style tables, and centrepieces can be set out. A combination of ceiling spotlights, chandeliers, and large windows create a well-lit, inviting ambience. After appetites have been satisfied, people can begin to drift in and out, enjoying the surroundings. Outdoors, a campfire can be savored beneath the stars, and this would certainly be a fitting place for a late-night toast or heartfelt speech.
Couples who book Le Belvedere are treated to a comprehensive suite of service and features. Ahead of the big occasion, a professional coordinator can guide and advise, and they can also lend their expertise when the special event arrives. Bar staff and waiters can also be on hand to serve the newlyweds and their guests. A range of event rentals can also be provided such as charming ceremony lanterns, chalkboards, table numbers, aisle markers, and more. Overnight stays for invitees can be arranged in The Guesthouse or The Wakefield Grand.
The head chef can prepare a selection of three-course meals to enjoy. The cuisine is inspired by a range of locations such as the Caribbean, Asia, Italy, Canada, and elsewhere. Canapes, late-night stations, plated dishes, and more are all served. Beverages available include beer, wine, and of course Champagne.

The perfect wedding experience
I cannnot be more grateful for the team at Le Belvedere. Yes, we picked the venue because of the view but holy moly we got more than we deserved. The staff was impeccable, organized and just perfect! The food wowed the entire wedding- we are still getting compliments on the pork belly and scallop appetizers! Yes, it might be in the middle of nowhere (our families came from California and Belgium) but everyone said they'd do it again since it was so perfect at Le Belvedere! Our decision factor was venue elegance and social media presence.Sent on 16/10/2019

What a perfect day! My husband and I got married at Le Belvedere on Saturday, July 8th. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and the food is amazing! Jessica and her team are amazing.
We booked Le Belvedere over 1.5 years ago and we couldn't be happier. Jessica and Kyle were great to answer all of our questions! I would recommend this venue to anyone! Thank you! :)Sent on 13/07/2017

The Best Day of Our Lives
I cannot gush enough about Jessica + the team at Le Belvedere. We had a magical winter wedding but along with that came inclement weather and major delays with guests and bridal party arriving.
Although we started our ceremony an hour late, with the help of Stephanie Mason from Stephanie Mason Photography and DJ Jeff from Capital Events + Entertainment, Jessica and the Le Belvedere team got us back on track for timing so we could enjoy everything as it was supposed to be scheduled.
Between the diligent care for dietary restrictions to the setup and cleanup of the venue, I cannot speak more highly of the extraordinarily organized and fun-loving spirit of the team at Le Belvedere.
Jessica, you truly are a gem and we were so grateful to be able to have our wedding at the most beautiful venue in the Ottawa / Gatineau area, Le Belvedere.Sent on 17/12/2018

Not only is Le Belvedere THE most stunning venue in the Ottawa/Gatineau area, but Jessica and her husband are incredible people to work with when planning your most special day. From the moment my (now) husband and I met with Jessica we knew we were in excellent hands. Jessica truly surpassed our expectations ... when you book at Le Belvedere, not only do you get a fantastic venue, but you also get a wedding coordinator. Jessica took care of so many unexpected details (provided many of our rustic decorations, did up our seating chart, took care of the complete decor setup and full take down at the end of the night, and so much more!) The food was phenomenal, the entire staff who catered our wedding were wonderfully helpful and friendly and so many of our guests commented that our wedding was the best they had ever attended. And if all that isn't enough, you also get a HUGE guesthouse onsite to enjoy at the end of the night (our entire wedding party was able to stay with us).Sent on 25/03/2017

Words cannot fully express how happy and thrilled Thom and I are with our wedding at Le Belvédère. It has been just over a week since our wedding and we are still over the moon with happiness! For anyone considering having your wedding at Le Belvedere, I highly recommend it with zero hesitations. I've broken my review down into the following components:Sent on 11/07/2016
The Venue- Jessica, Kyle + Brian (owners) very clearly had a vision when they decided to move forward and build Le Belvedere.They have done such a phenomenal job with every single aspect and detail that has gone into it. Not only is it breathtaking but it is also comfortable and functional. The rustic, yet modern design and décor is stunning and unique. The outdoor ceremony location provides incompariable views, and really doesn't need much décor, as the spot holds so much beauty on its own. Le Belvedere also puts Bride/Groom's minds at ease by providing a beautiful alternate indoor ceremony room if weather doesn't permit for the outdoor location.
Jessica + Kyle- your customer service skills are extraordinary and the way that you handle and respond to each and every phone call or email shows your dedication and passion for what you do. You were such a pleasure to work with and you made every step of the process a breeze.Never once did I worry about things coming together. Your capabilities were very obvious, and you had a way of putting us at ease. Not only did they ensure and help us through the planning process but they also made things come to life beautifully the day of by helping to coordinate with vendors, and set up our extra details and décor. Jessica also provides a beautiful wooden card box, rustic frames, and tea lights for those who desire their use. They are all beautiful additions!
Food- The chef at Le Belevedere provides so many delicious and impressive options that we really struggled to decide which to offer our guests after our complimentary tasting. We ended up choosing the stuffed spinach and mushroom chicken and filet mignon in a peppercorn sauce. From hors d'oeuvres to dessert our guests enjoyed every bite, and admired the beautiful presentation. From servers to bartenders, everyone was very friendly, prompt and did a wonderful job ensuring each guest was happy from beginning to end. LATE NIGHT buffet was spectacular! Our guests loved both the stations we decided to add- Poutine and Taco. All the ingredients were top notch from pulled pork to selected Quebec cheeses. I would highly recommend adding one, or both of these stations to your evening, as I'm sure your guests will be as happy as ours were!
The Guest House- With your wedding, you also receive a complimentary stay at the beautiful private guest house, just a short walk from the main reception hall. This property is STUNNING. It was a very comfortable and accommodating place for myself + bridesmaids to prepare for the wedding, take photos, and enjoy a nice lunch and moment of serenity before heading into a busy evening! Each of the rooms are luxurious, spacious, and provide ample privacy. This allowed for our family (we have 3 children) to stay comfortably the night of the wedding. The house also includes a gorgeous bridal suite/ dressing room, and a beautiful room upstairs away from the chaos for the bride and groom to stay. It was an amazing added bonus!!!
The Wakefield Grand- The owners of Le Belvedere also have a gorgeous boutique hotel which they allow Bride/Groom to rent out for their guests if desired. This is a fantastic option if your relatives live a distance from Wakefield, and are in need of overnight accomodation. The hotel is just as stunning as the wedding venue, and feautures the same rustic, yet modern vibe. They even offer a compliementary shuttle service to and from the wedding for any guests staying there. Our guests were blown away by the beauty and service of the hotel and were mentioning wanting to do a return visit in the near future!
AGAIN... Le Belvedere Team- Thank you, thank you, thank you for giving us our dream wedding. Everything exceeded our expectations and the expectations of all our guests and for that we are very grateful.
