My Garden Wedding

Lake Country, British Columbia View map

About

My Garden Wedding is a rustic outdoor venue welcoming unforgettable celebrations in Lake Country, British Columbia. The grounds of this stunning estate offer uninterrupted views of the surrounding mountains and the deep blue of the lake’s waters below. There are several event spaces to choose from, and all are included in our custom packages. When you choose My Garden Wedding you have private use of all the unique areas. The venue is located far from the lights of the city, offering a one-of-a-kind setting for a peaceful celebration.

Facilities and Capacity

My Garden Wedding features a multitude of distinctive, breathtaking outdoor venue spaces perfect for capturing that perfect picture. With a capacity of up to 120 guests. To-be-weds can choose to exchange their vows in the stunning Inverted Chapel. This Gothic-style space welcomes friends and family, as couples tie the knot under a minimalist wedding arch decorated with neutral hanging baskets. The site boasts impressive views over Kalamalka Lake and the surrounding mountains. For receptions or ceremonies, the Moongate and Pavillion on the Lawn space is an ideal choice that combines artistic Asian design with natural beauty. The Pavillion is a covered area on the lawn, with new extended shelter or shade with the 40x20 white wedding tent. It truly is the place where romance and nature meet. Every season offers a different landscape and scents to make you think of faraway lands. A recent bumper sticker sums it as "Venice, Paris, Oyama."

Services Offered

The staff of My Garden Wedding is happy to help couples organize their big day. We have benches, chairs, signing tables, and a few unique furniture items which are included in the package price. The team can provide access to a range of event items to ensure that your wedding day is a success. One of the most unique features of the venue is you can pick your own flowers for your bouquet and your bridesmaids from our flower farm. Many brides say this was one of the highlights of their wedding. Collect the flowers you like and we can help create that one-of-a-kind bouquet. A laid-back way right in the heart of nature before the stress of the day ahead, to laugh, create and have fun with your best friends.

We do not provide food or force you to use any vendors. This is a great way of choosing the food you like from food trucks to full-catered meals. You are in control of your choices and budget.

    10000% Recommend! Couldn’t of been happier with our experience at this venue!

    My husband and I decided in June 2022 that we wanted to get married in August 2022- we had originally thought we were going to do it in our families back yard but after looking around we found My Garden Wedding! It was very short notice, so I didn’t expect a response from Ian or to get the date that we wanted but Ian responded to my email within a few hours of inquiring and was able to make the date we wanted work! He invited us to view the grounds that weekend, which we did and gave us an incredible tour and explained how other people set it up as well to help us envision what we wanted. Ian was incredibly kind, responsive to all inquiries and also gave us his cell phone number incase we had more questions. He made the day incredibly easy for us! Because the venue is decorated so beautifully already with the incredible flowers, we didn’t need much decorations for it to look beautiful! Very grateful we found this venue! 10000/10 recommend. Everyone that came to the venue couldn’t believe that we had gotten it together in 6 weeks, and honestly that was mostly thanks to the decorations (flowers) that were already provided! His business partner, Cheri was incredible with helping during the day of the wedding as well- very accommodating right to the last minute of us being there!
    We also had our gender reveal at the venue, and Ian was so gracious and accommodating to allowing us have the reveal that we had wanted!

    My Garden Wedding's reply:

    Amanda, What a great story, and thanks for your kind words. What a great opportunity for a gender reveal. It's amazing, as we do what we always do, how others are affected. We are just doing our jobs. Your review is an encouragement for us to always do our best. Thanks so much and congratulations :)

    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.

    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.

    My Garden Wedding's reply:

    Hi Pam. What a leap of faith you took. Choosing to elope at a brand new venue from pictures alone and a few simple emails.
    Thank you so much for the amazing review. We work hard at creating not just a beautiful space but a personal experience. You were a trooper. Creating your own bouquet with your nice high heels on.
    Next time you are back in the Okanagan come for a romantic stroll around our gardens and relive some of those special moments. Ian

    Amazing venue overlooking the lake

    We fell in love with My Garden Wedding and immediately booked our wedding ceremony there. Ian was great to work with and supported all of our changes with the COVID restrictions. We are so happy we went with them and the photos are breathtaking!

    My Garden Wedding's reply:

    What can I say? You two pulled this off and created a wonderland in the midst of Covid. Your steadfastness with sticking to your original date speaks volumes about the commitment you made to each other, and is an amazing foundation for an happy life together.
    Thank you for your trust.
    It was truly my pleasure
    kind regards
    Ian

Owners

Scottish born Canadian artist Ian Donn with his wife Louise created My Garden Wedding over a period of three years. Turning a cattle grazed hillside into a brides dream wedding location.

Opening their doors in 2019. It is one of Canada's latest premier ceremony locations.

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

The landscape is created using mass plantings of carefully selected flowers and colors, which thrive in the Okanagan climate i.e. Lavender, echinacea ( coneflowers ).

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

Its always beatiful to see someone walking away from our gardens with an armfull of fresly picked blooms.
