    Worth the venue!

    It was a pretty smooth process considering that we had less than a year to plan our wedding! We went with the outdoor garden at the Pavilion and it was an amazing choice. Our guests were really surprised by how beautiful the garden is and helps us out as we don't have to worry so much about decorating!

    Stanley Park Pavilion's reply:

    Dear Noel,

    We wish both of you the best on your new adventure! Thank you for selecting The Stanley Park Pavilion to host your wedding.

    Take care.

    Beautiful Wedding Location with Delicious Food but not-so great organization/communication

    Stanley park pavilion is a great location choice if you want to have an outdoor garden wedding! Both the main lawn and the indoor ballroom are beautiful in itself and don't require too many decorations. We truly had a beautiful ceremony last June 2022! SPP also had a great covid-19 policy that was flexible, allowing you to rebook within a year or re-use your event credit for a different event later on which we never had to use thankfully but it gave us peace of mind!

    The food we tasted was delicious at both the tasting and on our wedding day. The service of the food was great and not disruptive! However there were a few hiccups while working with them and these included: 1) losing our invoice 2 months after having paid the deposit and receiving no follow-up until I personally contacted them 2) the constant handing over to different events managers made us feel like our needs may not truly be communicated as they were the first time which did result in various surprises the day of (i.e., no bread/coffee/tea served with dinner which was on the menu when we signed the contract; our cake being served to all guests had it not been for my planners who mentioned to save it for us and immediate family as there were already desserts during dinner, and overcharging for drinks which were not communicated properly about how we were to be billed but has now been resolved by SPP. The mic had also malfunctioned in the middle of our ceremony and reception and we had hoped this was something taken care of prior to the event but thankfully our DJ brought extra mics.

    They also did take a while to correspond to us throughout the planning process and when we asked them which events manager would my planners be coordinating with the day of, we were told that this newly hired assistant manager would be but not the second events manager we were passed on to. In the end, they did work with us to resolve the billing issues and were professional in doing so.

    We still had a beautiful wedding and do recommend them for their great location, food, atmosphere, and professionalism.

    Amazing staff, great location, best venue for our wedding鉂わ笍

    We planned our wedding remotely (from Hong Kong and San Francisco) as we were unable to travel due to COVID before the wedding. The Stanley Park Pavilion staff, Buket and Anj, were super accommodating and got us to do virtual site visits and we basically made the decision through emails and video chats. The team was really responsive during the preparation period despite all the time difference. We arrived Vancouver just 3 weeks before the wedding to finalize our food and beverage menus and to see the venue in person (and it was even better than how we imagined)! The team was also able to re-create two of our favourite cocktails that weren't on their usual menu and our guests loved it!

    On our wedding day, it was drizzling but we really wanted to do our wedding ceremony as planned. Thank you Stanley Park Pavilion staff for setting up everything in the rain, and also lending us umbrellas for our harpist and cellist last minute! The rain stopped miraculously at the start of the ceremony so everything went perfectly as we planned. Our guests had an amazing time - FOOD WAS EXCELLENT!!

    Thank you for being part of our special day鈽猴笍

    Food was delicious and my guests were very pleased. The venue was beautiful and the staff provided excellent service. I highly recommend booking your wedding at Stanley Park Pavilion.

    Exceptional staff and service!

    The Pavilion was a spectacular location for a wedding. It is physically stunning both outside and in and was the perfect fit for our indoor ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, though the outdoor ceremony location in warmer parts of the year would be beautiful.

    The amazing venue is complemented by an equally amazing staff. The venue staff were truly impeccable during set-up, the wedding and clean-up. Everything ran perfectly on-time and they took care of each guests with warmth and professionalism.

    Buket, the event sales manager, is second to none. So fast to respond to our many many questions leading up to the wedding, assisting us with rehearsal a few days before and ensuring everything ran smooth during the ceremony makes her the perfect person to work with during such uncertain times.

    Shawn, Tasha, Chef Nay and Nirmal took great care when it came to the food and beverage parts of the evening. We had a lot of dietary restrictions to work with and they executed the plan we co-created flawlessly and our guests were very happy to the delicious food.

    If you can get this venue for your wedding, we would highly recommend it, they made our wedding truly incredible. Truly a world class venue and staff at the Pavilion.

    Amazing Fall Wedding

    You would be silly not to book with Stanley Park Pavilion. Buket and her team helped us pull off the most amazing Covid wedding. The team helped us over numerous hurdles while making the whole process stress free. All of our guests were complimenting not only how delicious the food was but how smoothly the whole evening went.
    We would definitely recommend booking your wedding with Stanley Park Pavilion.

    SPP Review

    COVID threw many wrenches in our plan to have a wedding reception, ranging from guest limits to city-level restrictions and changes. While we originally signed with Prospect Point, a city decision forced the restaurant to close, and we were graciously moved to SPP for no change in rental fee. Buket was quick in responses, and her staff were friendly, professional, and helpful on the wedding day.
    SPP is a beautiful 1910-era building that hardly needed any decoration. It's pretty central in Stanley park, with lots of trails and pathways close by that make for great photo opportunities!

    Our Fairytale Wedding at Stanley Park Pavilion

    Stanley Park Pavilion was our dream wedding venue. Buket and SPP team are extremely accommodating and made it easy to tailor our wedding to exactly how we dreamt it would be. Buket has lots of experience and was hands on in helping us make logistical decisions that made our day go smoothly.
    The venue package is thoughtfully done - down to having a spa water station put out for the ceremony - making our guests feel like VIP! The transition from ceremony to cocktail hour to dinner was seamless. We鈥檙e forever grateful to have had our wedding here. Thank you again!

    It was a pleasure hosting your wedding at our venue. Thank you for selecting us for your big day.
    We wish you all the best
