Facilities and Capacity
The happy couples can say “I do” under the gazebo. Joined by their loved ones, a sheltered event can take place, led by a chosen celebrant. With space for dozens of guests, everyone can enjoy the romance of the moment as they look out across Sooke Harbour. After the confetti has been sprinkled and applause has rung out, the newlyweds can make their way back down the aisle. Alternatively, an indoor site can be arranged for those who would like to exchange vows away from the elements. This is an ideal option on days when the weather is unsuitable. After the wedding party has departed, photos can be indulged in at the gazebo or around the rest of the beautiful grounds. A short stroll away, a courtyard area is available, complete with lounge furniture and space to relax. This would be ideal for those who would like to appreciate a cocktail in the open air as they await the beginning of the reception revelries. A terrace, lined with palm trees, awaits the pre-dinner festivities.
When the time comes for the all-important meal, the 5,000 square-foot Grand Ballroom makes for a fitting location to savour some delicious cuisine, adult beverages, and likable company. Here, up to 325 people can be accommodated, so it is suitable for hosting an occasion to match this venue’s sprawling size. The ballroom is suitably lit with overhead fixtures, making it warm and inviting. When arranged with round tables and chairs, it is fitting for toasts, speeches, and fine dining.
A variety of features are available for clients to enjoy at Prestige Oceanfront Resort. Event rentals can be provided such as furniture, a dance floor, and audio equipment. For those seeking adventure and activity, whale-watching, fishing, and kayaking can all be enjoyed here. More relaxing engagements include spa treatments and relaxing swims. Accommodation is also available. Many of these tastefully designed, comfortable rooms offer views of the water and provide somewhere relaxing to sleep. Few will be able to deny themselves a chance to experience The Pacific Penthouse—ideal for the married pair. Diverse and delicious cuisine may also be served with adult beverages such as Champagne, beer, wine, and more.

We recently hosted our daughter's wedding at Prestige Oceanfront in Sooke and are still smiling! Couldn't of been better! The setting is ideal and the location superb. Our seventy-eight guests from across Canada and the US just loved the hotel and exploring the gorgeous sea-side town of Sooke. The staff of the hotel just couldn't do enough for everyone to ensure their stay there was enjoyable. Just loved the girls who served the canapés to our guests during the cocktail reception and were amazed with how the serving staff coordinated the plated dinner. Everything was not just delicious but also hot. The events coordinator, Nichola, went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding went smoothly! She was SO great to work with and will always remember her friendly demeanour and helpful assistance! Can recommend the Prestige without hesitation and look forward to staying there again!Sent on 15/07/2019

We were completely happy with our choice to hold our wedding at this venue. From the start, Nichola was a great help. She was very personable and took a genuine interest in the wedding and ensuring that the day was successful. Couples were invited to an event early in the year to see the venue decorated for a wedding and with some of the hotels preferred vendors. This was also an opportunity to fine tune the menu and drinks to be served at our wedding. Contact with Nichola was easy and she was always available to answer any questions and the front desk staff were also extremely easy to deal with in terms of booking rooms for guests and amending them as necessary. The morning of the wedding was wet and the hotel was fully prepared to relocate the ceremony to an inside space but recommended that we stick with the outdoors space and we are so glad that we did. The weather cleared over the course of the morning and it was blue sky and sun by the time the ceremony came around. The reception in the ballroom looked amazing and was the perfect space for the size of our wedding (65 guests). We opted for the buffet meal and everyone has commented on how great the food was. The hotel was very clean and the rooms were comfy and the hotel provided a discounted rate for wedding guests. Overall our experience with this venue was excellent and would have not concerns recommending to other couples.Sent on 30/09/2018

Absoloutley beautiful venue. Extremely accommodating. Amazing customer service. Great food. Beautiful rooms. Beautiful backdrop for wedding photos. Great venue for a winter wedding because where they do their indoor ceremony is perfect. The wedding coordinator Nichola Warner was extremely helpful and professional. My New Year's Eve wedding was so stress free and went off without a hitch! We will be back every year!Sent on 23/01/2017

Nichola was so wonderful to work with. She put up with my endless questions and kept me calm when I thought that I was late. The venue is stunning. We knew that this would be our venue when we first seen it. The food was delicious and displayed beautifully. The staff are all wonderful and bent over backwards to make sure that we were happy. We love love love the Prestige!!

Upon immigrating to Canada from England over five years ago, I joined the team at the Prestige Oceanfront Resort Sooke in this time, I have found ways to consistently exceed expectations for hundreds of happy wedding couples.
I started out supervising banquet events, and my passion for the industry soon saw me promoted to Conventions and Sales Manager. As such, I will be involved with your wedding from the first enquiry to the moment we say goodbye and every step in between, whether you are planning an intimate gathering or a grandiose event.
My favorite part of weddings is the great feeling I get working with couples on such a special day in their lives. All guests and couples are so happy, and it is so touching to watch and be a part of.
With my attention to detail and genuine care, I will ensure that your wedding day is the perfect event that you imagine and will make memories that you will never forget.
Let’s go for coffee so I can help you build a plan for your special day!
