    Our dream "destination" wedding come true!

    We'd never heard of the Norland before I met them at a bridal show in Calgary. A gorgeous, affordable, Southern-style mansion just two hours south? Somebody pinch me!

    When told we were having our wedding in Lethbridge, people always asked if we were from there/why Lethbridge. Then I'd whip out my phone and show them this fabulous venue and watch their jaws drop. Needless to say, they understood!

    The estate is stunning, and having the whole event from ceremony to photos and the reception all in one spot made it super convenient. The whole team was a dream to work with. They understood our needs (namely allergies) and worked very hard to ensure they were met. I'd like to specifically shout out Alex, Laura, Kelsea, Trisha, and the owners Dale and Maurine. Our wedding was absolutely perfect.

    I also appreciated the handy list of recommended vendors the Norland had available, making vendor hiring decisions a piece of cake.

    The Norland Historic Estate Venue's reply:

    Thank you so much Centaine for your lovely review and the beautiful pictures! We really appreciate it! We loved hosting your wedding at the Norland and are so very happy that you chose us to share with you on your very special day! Congratulations!

    Elegant Garden Party Wedding

    Norland was an excellent location. They are tied to using LA Chefs as the catering because it is owned by LA Chefs. They were up front about fees, but did not factor them in when giving totals unless explicitly asked to do so. They have a strict 2 pm access to the lodgings on location which caused some issues with getting ready there. The getting ready space is very small and dark.

    The Norland Historic Estate Venue's reply:

    Hi Jaycee thank you for your great review! We appreciate your feedback as it helps us to continually look for ways to improve! We will have to look in to some better lighting for our "Flex Space" for sure! Thanks again and we hope you are doing well!

    Dream come true wedding at The Norland

    Norland is an amazing place to hold a wedding! I would recommend this place to everyone and anyone! The staff really go above and beyond. In particular Alexandra (the event organizer), Trisha (the wedding planner) and Amy (the day of coordinator) were so wonderful. They are organized, helpful, and very friendly. There are so many beautiful spots within the Norland grounds that you don’t even have to leave the venue for wedding pictures. Norland is very accommodating to your wedding wishes and always ensures that you’re happy and that your wedding day is perfect!

    The Norland Historic Estate Venue's reply:

    Hi Rebecca - thank you SO MUCH for this amazing review! We are honored that you chose the Norland for your wedding venue, and our team was so happy to share in your special day. Congratulations and we wish you the absolute very best in your future together!
