The garden was gorgeous for a summer wedding. We had both our ceremony and dinner reception at VanDusen. The venue is spacious and flexible to fit various floor plan designs. The staff there were very responsive and professional.Sent on 09/09/2019

We had an absolutely perfect day at VanDusen for our wedding in September 2019. Right from the beginning, the staff were super responsive and easy to communicate with. They were able to provide everything we needed, and checked in with our planners to be sure everything was set as it was meant to be. The room looked simple and elegant - the sweeping ceiling in the great hall made for gorgeous photos without needing too much extra decor. We hired Truffles catering on site, and many of our wedding guests commented that it was the best wedding food they'd ever had! Highly recommend the venue and the catering.Sent on 08/10/2019

Thank you for choosing to make VanDusen a part of your special day, we hope to see you and Mitch around the garden in the future!

Loved VanDusen as our wedding venue!
We had our wedding in the BMO Great Hall and Peggy Gunn Hall A in VanDusen. The indoor venue price was very reasonable and really suited our purposes because we were having a Chinese style ceremony and a Western style reception. All the VanDusen staffs were very friendly and helpful. Between the ceremony and the reception, we were able to take some beautiful photos around the garden, which was another perk of the place. I know that the outdoor space in VanDusen is probably more popular, but the BMO Great Hall, with its huge windows and high ceilings, was quite great as a wedding venue.Sent on 15/10/2019
VanDusen Botanical Garden's reply:Thank you so much Shirley! It was such a pleasure getting to know you both. We are so glad that our venue was able to accommodate the mixed Western & Chinese wedding that you had envisioned. The décor you had for both your ceremony and reception were beautiful. We wish you & William all the best and hope that you will come and visit us at VanDusen the next time you come to Vancouver!

Beautiful place for a outdoor wedding
Ceremony took place at Heron Lake under the willow tree. We didn't need any decor as the gardens did all the work! Our reception took place in the halls of the visitor centre. It was perfect for our wedding and still provided that garden/outdoor look and feel that we wanted.Sent on 08/09/2019
VanDusen Botanical Garden's reply:Thank you so much Elaine! We are so pleased to hear that you loved the look and feel of the gardens and indoor halls for your wedding. The willow tree at Heron Lake is one of our favourite spots in the garden as well as it adds a beautiful ceremony backdrop overlooking the water. Thank you again for choosing to host your wedding here with us! We wish you and David the very best!

A Dream Garden Wedding
Van Dusen holds a special place in our hearts, as my husband's grandfather has a poetry rock in the Korean pavilion. The garden is so magical and beautiful on it's own, that we didn't have to bring in a ton of decor. We held our ceremony in The Great Lawn, and hosted our reception inside the hall. The Great Lawn was perfect, set against the west cost mountains, and tucked away into a quiet spot away from the garden foot-traffic -- it was everything we wanted and more. The team at VanDusen had great insight, having done so many weddings and events in the past. This is definitely a space for an outdoor garden wedding!Sent on 20/07/2019
