    Amazing Venue!

    We felt totally at ease working with Darryl and Brett at the SCC. They were so professional, responsive, and flexible. If you want to have your wedding in a large and versatile venue, I would definitely recommend SCC!

    We loved working with Darryl and Brett with their friendly helpful personalities. We knew our venue so well we didn't stress or worry leading up to the day and on the day. Darryl was readily available to answer any questions and easy going when we had to change our date. Brett ...

    We had our wedding reception here and it was a great experience from beginning to end. Darryl and Brett were always friendly and accommodating. We easily fit 300 guests with a dance floor. There's a bar area, a reception area (where our photobooth was later set up). They had air ... View more conditioning. The Centre looked great with the decorations set up from a decorator they recommend (Margarit). We would definitely recommend Scottish Cultural Centre!

    We had the ultimate DYI wedding at the Vancouver Scottish Cultural Centre and we couldn't have chosen a better place.

He always made time for us to come look at the facility anytime we needed to sort out details and was so accomodating, which made the little details leading up the the event less stressful. Anytime I made contact with him to get information he always gave such considerate responses, often going beyond what I was expecting. The facility itself is great, it has everything needed to make for a successful event. They have facilitated countless weddings and it shows, they were very sensitive towards us during such a big moment in our lives and we appreciated their calm and reassuring demeanor. It was beyond our expectations how friendly and accomodating they were, such a reasonable and honest place and group of people to work with.

    Overall we were really happy that we booked the Scottish Cultural Centre. We were looking for somewhere affordable that would allow us to bring in our own alcohol without charging a corking fee, and that was fairly central to transit/hotels/the airport. The Scottish Cultural ... View more Centre ticked off those boxes. Darryl (the manager) and Brett were fantastic. Darryl allowed me to make the final deposit a couple of days late when my chequing account went into overdraft (I hadn't accounted for all the vendor deposits coming out on the same day...wedding brain...) with no problems. Brett helped us set up and take down our tables and chairs, as well as a video we played for the guests. He has a fun personality, and had us laughing and relaxing every time we met up with him in the days before the wedding. The only (minor) hiccup we ran into is that they don't allow you to use 3M Command Hooks, so we had to get a bit creative with how we could hang some of our lights, decorations, and modified our plans for the Selfie Station. It's basically a big hall, so you can put your own touch on the room. We mainly just stuck to putting up lights and decorating the tables and stage. All in all I'd highly recommend the Scottish Cultural Centre if you're looking to avoid exorbitant corkage fees and a DIY bride/groom.
