    Hosted our perfect dream wedding!

    We had our wedding at Tigh Na Mara this August and Jackie was there from day 1 to help with any questions and concerns we had and to help with the craziness of planning a wedding. She is professional, organized, approachable and a great person!! She was nothing short of AMAZING. The day before our wedding we had a run through meeting with her and she put us at ease that she would handle everything. From picking up our marriage license in the morning to give to the officiant when she arrived, to delivering the bridal party to the ceremony space to even bustling my dress before our grand entrance she was there for everything. She was the eyes and ears for us and we appreciated her so very much.聽 If you are wanting a gorgeous wedding venue from the rustic forest scenes to the breathtaking beach (especially amazing for pictures) Tigh Na Mara in Parksville is the place for you. Also want to send a big shout out to the Banquet Manager, Christina and her staff, the bartenders (they kept up with our wedding of 96 people who know how to drink!!)聽 ALL the staff at Tigh Na Mara for making us feel special and making our wedding and stay run smoothly and stress free as possible.

    Rehearsal and Wedding

    Jackie at Tigh-Na-Mara was very helpful with the wedding planning and coordination of everything. If I had any questions Jackie always got back to me in a timely matter. The staff at Tigh-Na-Mara were very helpful as well. A great venue for a wedding.

    Oceanside Wedding

    We had a magical wedding weekend at Tigh-na-mara. The Tigh-na-mara staff was incredible throughout the whole process of planning and executing the wedding. Their wedding coordinator Jackie was so helpful and supportive. The staff made everything run incredibly smoothly.

    Our wedding had many children attending, so having a resort which is also a wonderful place for kids was perfect. The staff helped us organize a number of events surrounding the wedding including campfire evenings on the beach and family luncheons.

    Our ceremony was at the gazebo overlooking the ocean. The setting was spectacular. Our guests loved it. Tigh-na-mara organized a cocktail reception for immediately after the ceremony with drinks and delicious hors-d'oeuvres. We were greeted with wine as we completed the recession.

    The banquet hall where the reception took place, looked spectacular. The food was wonderful and the staff took constant care of our guests.

    A number of our guests had such a wonderful time, they told us they would be shifting their summer vacations to Tigh-na-mara.

    We could not recommend a place to hold your wedding more highly.

    Absolutely Magical!

    The staff at Tigh Na Mara were so welcoming, friendly, helpful and amazing!

    Our wedding was beautiful. From the gazebo overlooking the ocean, to the Garden Patio where we held the reception, it was perfection. The wedding coordinator was super helpful with whatever we needed and we can鈥檛 thank her enough for making the day go so smoothly.

    I highly recommend this resort and the staff for your wedding, function or simply a vacation! We are already talking about spending our one year anniversary back at Tigh Na Mara.

    Perfect Wedding Experience

    We had a small wedding at Tigh-Na-Mara in July 2022, 9 of us total. It was perfect. Jackie was a delight to work with, she made the planning process and the wedding day so easy and relaxing. Everything was taken care of for us, all we had to do was show and up get married! The food and service at Cedar's was excellent. The marriage commissioner Laurel that was arranged with our wedding package was also wonderful. We had the ocean-view deluxe studio, the room was beautiful and right beside the ceremony location. We went with the baseline decor and flowers offered with our package, the decor was simple and beautiful, and my bouquet from pettle kettle was gorgeous. If you want a relaxing and intimate wedding that allows you to focus on the most important part- your new spouse, then book TNM!

    Wonderful small wedding

    Highly enjoyed our stay at Tigh-Na-Mara and getting married there. Their Savor the Date event in February was awesome to meet all their people they use for weddings and it made it very easy for us to create our wedding. Highly recommend anyone to use their contractors. Everyone we used was awesome.
