    Everything I could’ve hoped for and more!

    Tigh Na Mara is a special place for my family so we had to have our ceremony and reception here. You can go big and pay a lot, or you can do the cheaper options. We were more conservative with our budget but you never would’ve known. The staff treated us like absolute GOLD and our day was nothing short of perfect. TNM went above and beyond helping with set up, assisting us while we got our pictures done, and ensuring I was calm and reassured before walking down the aisle.
    The bartenders were fantastic and even with so many people the drinks were made super fast (very little wait time to get a drink) and consistent. The food was wonderful. My expectations were exceeded and we couldn’t be happier we chose TNM!

    Most wonderful venue for a homey- rustic wedding!

    We had our 2019 wedding here. We had researched many venues but only went to view Tigh-Na-Mara. Once we had the tour we were sold! Rozlan and her staff are incredible! They’re so accommodating and thoughtful! They made the wedding day stress free!

    The staff are so professional and helpful! All our guests were so impressed!

    The food is Devine and the buffet was a hit!

    If you’re thinking of a venue on Vancouver Island- Tigh-Na-Mara has it all! Great views, great food, wonderful service, amazing spa! You won the lottery by choosing this venue!

    I am beyond happy that I used Tigh-Na-Mara for my wedding ceremony and reception. Sierra is a dream to work with and made sure everything went as smooth as possible. I highly recommend having your wedding here!!!

    Amazing venue and staff!

    We traveled from England to get married at Tigh Na Mara, after planning the trip and the wedding for 18 months there was a big expectation and it certainly didn’t disappoint! I can honestly say it was an amazing day for us and our guests, most of whom had also traveled from the UK. Jackie, Hugo and Kaitlin couldn’t do enough for us, not forgetting Joanne in the restaurant. We have stayed here a week and loved every second, we couldn’t recommend it highly enough.

    Amazing venue!

    We had an AMAZING experience at Tigh-Na-Mara for our destination wedding! We had family and friends visiting from across Canada, the USA and New Zealand and it truly captured the West Coast style of our wedding dreams! Rozlan was a phenomenal wedding coordinator and the staff at the Resort went over and above for us! We could not have been happier!
