The Celebration Pavilion at Queen Elizabeth Park is a charming venue located at the highest point in the city of Vancouver, British Columbia that hosts wedding ceremonies, receptions and other special events. The back walls of the Pavilion open up to a beautiful patio & garden area, creating an enchanting ceremony backdrop.

Facilities & Capacity

The wedding venue includes a beautiful wooden patio and surrounding garden area as a backdrop to your special event. This venue comes with a private washroom for guests and separate bridal room. The covered arboured boardwalk leads you and your guests into the venue and is of your exclusive use for the duration of your rental time. The Celebration Pavilion can accommodate a maximum of 100 people for a ceremony, 48 for a seated reception or 65 for a standing cocktail reception. A retractable wall opens up and allows you and your guests to enjoy the picturesque outdoor backdrop from a covered space. This venue features radiated heated-floors for events taking place in cooler months. This wheelchair-accessible venue provides additional comfort and convenience for all attendees. Pay-parking is available throughout Queen Elizabeth Park and is operated by the separate entity EasyPark.

Services Offered

The Celebration Pavilion offers different rental packages depending on whether you are holding your wedding ceremony on a weekday or weekend during our high or low season.

If you wish to hold a reception at the Pavilion, we would love to schedule a phone call to discuss in more detail, as the logistics of a reception (this includes any event serving food and/or beverage) are much more complex than a ceremony only booking. The rentals office hours are Monday to Friday, between 9am and 4pm.

Included in your rental is the services of a liaison staff member, the use of 80 silver chiavari chairs with standard lecture style setup, a signing table with linen, a sound system with aux input, handheld or lapel microphones, your choice of either a red or black carpeted aisle runner and silk floral decors of either blush/lavender/white or red/green. Wedding rehearsals are available upon request and solely dependant on availability.

In-person viewings with a member of the rentals department are limited and by appointment only. If you cannot make it here in person, we have created a photo album for you to visit the space virtually. If you would like to visit the facility in person yourself, you are more than welcome to; the front doors are windows, and you can see the space from the outside. However, if there is an event taking place, we ask that you please respect their privacy and come back another time. We are more than are happy to go over any questions that you may have after your visit via email.

The Most Beautiful Place In Vancouver

This site was amazing. We had very little decor, and didn't need it anyways. The site was stunning. The seats were comfortable, and the staff were so accommodating.

It was much warmer than we thought it was going to be, which was great because it was a winter wedding. The surrounding area was also perfect for photos, as the grounds are stunning.

The mid day light shone through so perfectly that everyone complimented us on the timing of the ceremony, since the windows glowed beautifully.

Cannot recommend this venue enough.

The best ceremony spot !

Just wanted to thank The Chaple group for thier amazing service on our wedding day. Allan and Mitchell both made the process feel so easy going and wonderful through out. We had our wedding at the Queen Elizabeth Park Pavillion and felt absolutely magical , its beautiful to take take pictures around the park after too. We love thier package options they offer including decor and live music it made things so easy for us. We are expectationally thankful for thier talented pianist who had learned the songs we requested and it made the day even more special having that meaningful music playing as we made were married. Our guests were in awe of the whole ceremony from the beauty of the venue and our wonderful and smooth talking officent Mitchell and the beautiful music that touched our souls. Its was an absolutely magical day and we can't thank the chaple group enough for customizing our dream vision come true.

Beautiful venue with helpful staff

Many thanks to Maria and Lindsay for helping us from start to finish. The ceremony was perfect and I have nothing negative to say. We did not have a wedding coordinator, so Lindsay worked together with our officiant Jane from Young Hip and Married to facilitate a very helpful rehearsal and ceremony. Highly recommend QE for your ceremony. It was beautiful and magical. Everyone was professional, polite, helpful, and well-prepared.

Beautiful wedding ceremony venue!

We had our wedding ceremony at QE Celebration Pavilion in August. Maria and Lindsey were so helpful throughout the entire process from selecting a date/time, to booking the venue, to rehearsals, to day of our wedding. Communication was easy. They are professional and knowledgeable. As for the venue, we choose to have the red carpet and blush silk floral set. We also brought in two arrangements of our own. The venue was absolutely beautiful.

Happy I booked here

If you’re planning a wedding ceremony for 50 or less people, this location is perfect! I booked 11am-1pm slot and 2 hours was just perfect for us.

It’s an enclosed area so even if it rains (which it was supposed to on my day but luckily it didn’t) you are covered, and they provide chairs as well (one less thing to worry about renting).

After the ceremony we walked around the park for pictures, as there are a few great spots for beautiful pictures.
