About Bayview Wildwood Resort

Bayview Wildwood Resort is a Severn Bridge venue that specializes in creating wonderful memories by setting the ideal spot for weddings and other special events. Located off the shores of Sparrow Lake, this venue offers soon-to-be-married couples the chance to have a lovely outdoor ceremony with a lakeside reception to create the waterfront wedding you had always envisioned. Their wedding packages are designed as a weekend 'destination' wedding to allow you to visit with your guests for a full weekend rather than just a few hours!

They do not do any weddings in July and have limited availability for August (weddings under 100 people) and they only schedule one wedding per weekend available. They can offer full resort weddings throughout the rest of the year depending on availability.

Services offered

This venue's wedding package will start you and your guests off with a barbecue by the lake followed by a lakeside bonfire to start the weekend wedding festivities. The services offered after the ceremony include linens, beverage service, accommodation, catering and outside vendor suggestions.

    Weekend Wedding!

    Sorry for the lengthy post- trying to give information for any future brides!

    Bayview Wildwood Resort will always hold a special place in our hearts, as we chose this resort for our wedding weekend September 29th-October 1st 2017. We had a lot of guests from out of province so we wanted a venue that could accommodate all guests (approximately 120 people- but they can hold more) and be it's own destination (beautiful setting, good price, good food etc). We did not want our guests flying in and just staying at a holiday inn for one night and only see us for half a day- so we did an entire weekend where our guests came Friday and left Sunday. That way it was worth it for our guests to make the trip across the country. 

    From our first visit at the resort to the morning we left following the wedding, the staff at Bayview helped make our wedding weekend stress free and so enjoyable. They really cater to what you want for your wedding and provide so much flexibility which we really appreciated. They really go above and beyond and to any bride- that is really important. For example, when we were setting up the arbor, we were trying to position it so that the water trampoline would not show up in any photos- we were struggling with its position and then the ground guys just jumped in a boat, went over to the trampoline and pulled it in on shore so it was no longer an issue. There were many instances such as this where the Bayview staff just jumped in and handled a situation without any direction- this contributed to everything running so smoothly. 

    The plan was to have a bonfire on the Friday night but the weather was absolutely terrible so the back up plan was to all go to the Cedar Room to socialize and play some cards etc but then the power went out for over half the resort (due to weather). My parents had rented Albert Manor (which I highly recommend-where the bridal party got ready etc) and they still had power so we ended up having a big house party with all the guests and this night was super super fun. 

    Saturday, the guests all got to enjoy the resort (some stayed in bed recovering from the Friday night festivities) but guests were canoeing, kayaking, SUPing etc. There is SO much to do here. Then we had a beautiful outdoor ceremony on the Albert Manor grounds. Everything went 100% smooth here- really nothing to complain about- a dream ceremony followed by cocktail hour and then reception in the dining lounge with the lake as a back drop. Our guests raved about the food- I didn't have much of an appetite with all of the excitement but what I did have was delish. We did a plated meal- gave our guests the option for chicken, beef or veg. 

    Buffet breakfast was included with our guests accommodation so Sunday morning we got one last chance to see everyone before we all went our separate ways. Many guests have said they would like to come back and everyone said they had the best weekend. Jeff and Jason were my go-to guys (Jason was more resort logistics and Jeff was all things wedding- food and beverage and all the little details from Friday-Sunday). Jeff brought to life any request I had and kept me sane throughout all the wedding planning - you basically get a wedding resort planner for the weekend. They really thought of everything- including sweet gestures like champagne in the room for the bride and groom.

    I cannot rave enough about the resort and staff. Some rooms are more dated than others but they were clean and we loved the more rustic cottage-y vibe- that is exactly what we were going for. Yes trains constantly go by and unfortunately one went by right when our ceremony started so no-one got to hear anything but it did not ruin a thing and is a great memory. If you are a light sleeper you may struggle with that but it was fine and did not bother us- there is actually some amazing history tied with the rail line here so be positive about it!

    If anyone has any questions (especially future brides) do not hesitate to reach out to me I would be happy to answer your questions.

    I am SO thankful we had a such an amazing experience for our wedding and it really comes down to the venue, food and experience your guests have- Bayview really delivers and knows how to throw a wedding. Also- we did not have a huge budget. You could do your wedding as affordable or extravagant as you would like and the wedding rate for your guests is cheaper than any other hotel in the area and included breakfast! 

    Other than choosing to marry my husband, choosing to have our wedding at Bayview Wildwood Resort was the best decision we made for our wedding. We can't wait to go back to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. 

    Thank you for your incredible hospitality!

    Lakeside Wedding of Our Dreams

    Bayview Wildwood hosted our September 2017 wedding and we can’t thank the team enough for making our day (and weekend) so special! If you are looking for a lakeside wedding with a cottage vibe this is your venue! We wanted a good time, with good food, celebrating with those closest to us and Bayview delivered the ideal experience.

    The weather was in our favour and our guests were able to enjoy every inch of the resort during the weekend. From the Friday bon fire to the Saturday ceremony and reception Bayview allowed us to pull off the lakeside wedding of our dreams.
