    Stunning Venue!

    As a wedding officiant, I see many venues and My Garden Wedding is one of the best. Not just because of the gorgeous surroundings, but also because of the professionalism, the support and flexibility by Ian for me as the officiant, and to and for the couples. There are so many photo opportunities available, too - even in torrential rain and hailstorms that momentarily appeared during one wedding. Thank you Ian! Love working for you and happy to recommend you to my couples.

    My Garden Wedding's reply:

    Lise, thanks for the amazing review. You are a generous soul who really cares about your clients. Looking forward to doing may weddings together.

    Wedding in Lake Country

    My Husband and I got married at My Garden wedding on May 2021. We had an amazing experience! Ian (the owner) was great, he was very quick to respond to all of my many question, and helped us navigate the ever changing provincial restrictions. Ian went above and beyond, even having FaceTime meet and greet/tour of his beautiful venue. The venue itself is gorgeous, and well maintained. Our ceremony was held at the inverted chapel, and we took pictures in a variety of spaces around the property. Both our officiant and the photographer were suggested to us by Ian and we enjoyed working with both of them.

    A Fairy Tale Dream Come True ♡

    There are so many amazing things I could say about My Garden Wedding and Ian - the owner. Pictures don’t even begin to show the true beauty of the venue. The attention to detail, care and thought put into every aspect of it is so evident when you set foot onto the property (guaranteed you’ll be blown away + fall in love upon arrival!) We were SO excited to tell our families and all our friends that this is where we were going to get married. We could not wait to see the reaction on the faces of all our guests when they arrived at the venue and saw it in its full picturesque glory. Every guest had such a wonderful time and could not praise the venue enough. We feel so blessed to have gotten married in such a stunning place. We couldn’t have asked for a better day, or a better venue - all thanks to Ian. Ian is an absolutely incredible human - he is kind, funny, easy going & so helpful - truly one of a kind. He made the planning process a breeze, took us for a tour of the whole property to decide which location was best for our wedding day vision and went above & beyond for us. Nothing was ever too much for ask and no matter how many questions we had, they were always answered quickly. From the moment we first were in contact with Ian, through to leaving the day after our wedding everything was a joy. It was truly was a dream come true. I got to pick my very own bouquet from his gorgeous u-pick garden (which is included in the package) and he helped arrange the flowers together... it turned out to be so perfect - prettier than I could’ve ever imagined. I will be back for fresh florals in the future. If you’re thinking of getting married at any of the the 4 beautiful locations on site, I could not recommend it more!!! Thank you for everything, Ian!!! 💐

    Hi L and M. It was such a joy to work with you both creating your special day. You both made my job easy. You changed from plan A to plan B, to plan C without taking a breath. You adapted to every situation, including switching venues at the last minute because of a really heavy rain storm.
    The pleasure was all mine. Thanks for the amazing review!
    Loved the photographs. Thank you Cierra Carlyle

    Perfect Day!

    Our wedding day with MyGardenWedding was perfect! Ian was quick to respond to our messages and emails and was accommodating when we had last minute changes to our plans. We planned our wedding in 1 month and his micro wedding package made it essentially stress free! The flowers and surroundings overlooking the lake were stunning and perfect for our minimalist taste - highly recommended!

    What a wonderful experience!

    Ian and his team were the best! Thoughtful, supportive and very helpful in creating a special elopement. The venue is like no other, absolutely breathtaking! We can't say enough great things about them. We are so thankful that we chose MyGarden Wedding.

With a passion for flowers and always on the look out for beauty this project ticked all the boxes.

Atention to detail, customer service and providing that wow factor is foremost in the artists purpose.
