Beautiful wedding space!
The Gardens at HCP is absolutely beautiful! Perfect setting for a wedding! We had to cancel our big wedding due to Covid, and they were so kind to offer us a special deal for our small elopement. We had a short ceremony in the Zen Garden with a few close friends, and took photos around rest of the gardens afterwards. Megan, the event coordinator, was so kind and helpful. They really helped make our day perfect.Sent on 02/11/2020

Individual care and personalized treatment
Took time and care to ensure that all of our needs were met, made suggestions from prior experiences, and even answered questions that we never considered.Sent on 15/10/2019
The gardens were beautiful, the venue provides a variety of resources, and the staff were very friendly and professional!
The Gardens at HCP's reply:Thank you Erika! It was such a joy to celebrate our last wedding ceremony of the year alongside you, Brad, and your loved ones. I'm so glad the sun stayed out for you and I wish you many more shared sunny days.

Beautiful venue. Standard setting service
We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding venue. Coordinator Megan Stacey is professional and personable and a definite attribute to the HCP community. We went with a morning/daytime booking which was offered at a discounted rate.Sent on 25/04/2019
The garden is also a teaching space for students at the local landscaping school, and we were drawn to the idea of it being a space where people can learn about horticulture and nature.
Added bonus - We met our wedding commissioner, David Peck, during our initial visit bc he volunteers there on Fridays.
An abundance of accolades from us to Megan and the staff at HCP! Highly recommended!
The Gardens at HCP's reply:If I had a way to review my own clients, you and Thomas would get five stars! Thank you so much for your kind review and for helping to kick off our wedding season with so much style. I'll be recommending surprise ice cream sandwiches to everyone. Congratulations again and all the best!

HCP 5 Stars!!
My husband and I got married at the HCP, and we are so glad we did! Our original plan was to have the ceremony outdoors, but Megan made sure we had multiple weather permitting options! It rained down cats and dogs, but no worries, Megan had us all set for a beautiful ceremony inside the pavilion! Once the rain had slowed down, the wedding party was able to roam the gardens for photos! And because we had an off-season wedding, we had the whole place to ourselves! Guests were "wowed" at the absolute natural beauty of the venue! Very minimal decorations needed!!! We would definitely recommend the HCP for anyone looking to get married!Sent on 09/10/2018
The Gardens at HCP's reply:Thank you so much for your quick review, Chelsea! It was such a pleasure to help you and your family plan and execute the day. Hopefully we can host you for some sunny day pictures in the future. :) Congratulations again and all the best to you and Richard!

We could not have picked a better venue for our wedding. Megan was so wonderful through the whole process especially with all the changes due to covid. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding day. Thank you for all that you did!Sent on 12/07/2021

Hi! I'm Megan and I handle all of the wedding and special event bookings at The Horticulture Centre of the Pacific. I've been here for over 3 years and before I moved to the west coast, I spent 4 years as a catering sales manager/event coordinator at a private golf club outside Ottawa. (And before that, I was studying hospitality and working at Walt Disney World! I'm all about making the magic happen.)
My favourite part of the wedding planning process is our walk-through 6 weeks beforehand where I get to learn all the other vendors you've confirmed and swoon over how the vision has totally come together! I love meeting and working with new people and I've totally fallen in love with the collaborative nature of the wedding industry in Victoria.
