    Amazing wedding venue!

    We stayed on site, got married outside by the water and the place is absolutely beautiful. The event planner, Carolyn, was wonderful and the entire staff very accommodating.
    We did all of our pictures on site because of the beautiful backdrop and enjoyed a variety of snacks, nachos and poutine bar instead of the traditional sit down meal. Our guests loved it and we didn't have to stress over the little details on the day of. There was a chance of rain right before the ceremony and they let us wait until the last possible minute to call whether or not we used the tent - we didn't have to!

    I loved my wedding day and so did my guests. The Inverary wedding coordinator, Carolyn, was amazing- I am a type A personality and like to have things just so. I was expecting to be overseeing the set up the morning of the wedding, but after she anticipated my needs and desires a few times the day before, I decided to spend the morning relaxing instead at the spa. The wedding was amazing, there was not one thing I would change, and I owe a lot of that to Carolyn and the staff at the Inverary. They made my day not only perfect, but also completely stress free :) something that is mostly unheard of in the wedding world. I cannot recommend this location enough to engaged couples as a wedding venue. We had the gorgeous Bras D'or lakes as a backdrop for our ceremony, and were only a quick drive from St Ann's lookoff for some gorgeous photos (along with the amazing shots at the Inverary both inside and out). We had our reception at the McAulay conference centre and it was amazing.

    We started planning our wedding while my fiancé was deployed with the military half way around the world. In addition we live in Victoria BC so we were planning a wedding in Cape Breton from the other side of the country. The help and responsiveness from the staff at the Inverary especially Carolyn was amazing and just what we needed. They offered so many suggestions and answered all our questions quickly. Even when we made last minute changes they were helpful and responsive. The location itself was a beautiful for photos. We did our wedding outside and had the reception in the conference centre. We used the Lakeside for our rehearsal get together. I used the spa for hair and makeup. Everything was in one place and well set up for the wedding.

    We had our wedding at the Inverary in August and I would recommend this location to anyone. First of all, it's an incredibly beautiful spot with the ceremony site right in front of the Bras d'Or Lake. It rained on my wedding day during the time that we were supposed to have the ceremony, but even the alternative location in a tent now has a beautiful arbor and still retains the water view. The reception hall is also lovely, and with the addition of strings of twinkle lights on the ceiling (which the Inverary now offers), it was pretty stunning. Secondly, the whole resort is quite picturesque and it was so great and convenient to have all of our guests staying in the same spot. It made everything so much easier to coordinate and gave the whole weekend a really festive feeling. The thing that really sets the Inverary apart from other locations though is the amazing staff. Everyone that we encountered in the planning stages and on the day of was so welcoming and helpful. The coordinator, Carolyn, is so professional and organized. She answered every question I had quickly and was always available through e-mail or phone to help with the planning process. On the day of she was so great in making sure that we had everything we needed and keeping the day organized. When it started to rain, she was quick to reassure me and took care of everything that had to do with moving the ceremony site and pushing the time back a little. I honestly did not feel a moment of stress throughout the whole day because I knew we were in such good hands. I could not recommend this place enough!
