2 to 200 Guests

Summerhill Pyramid Winery is a wedding venue located in Kelowna, British Columbia. This multifaceted property boasts many appealing features that make it ideal for celebrating whirlwind occasions. Customers can come to this waterside location to say “I do” while enjoying the rarity of the milestone. With a rich history behind it, there is also a great deal of contemporary flair to its design and layout.

Facilities and Capacity

For the ceremony, a number of sites are available, such as The Heritage Lawn and the Vineyard Lawn. Outdoors, to-be-weds can join together as they exchange vows, hand over rings, and pledge commitments to each other. Taking in the fresh air, admiring the breath-taking sites, and being joined in matrimony in a truly distinctive space all combine to create a romantic setting. Elsewhere, the Pyramid stands out. From the outside, its large and unique structure suits photo opportunities. Inside, too, it is very distinctive with its high ceilings and spacious layout. Ideal for indoor ceremonies, it is fitting of the one-of-a-kind milestone as photos are captured and videos are recorded.

After important words have been uttered, everyone can make their way to celebrate the reception. The newly married pair can indulge in some couple portraits prior to the all-important meal. There are a few different places available for the couple and their distinguished guests to gather for a culinary experience. The banquet-appropriate Vineyard Ballroom has space for tables and Chiavari-style chairs to be set up as everyone sinks into the ambience of the occasion. Natural light and elegant decor complement each other as conversation ignites and memories are made. The capacity of Summerhill Pyramid Winery ranges from 2 to 200 guests, making it suitable for intimate and lavish affairs.

Services Offered

Staff at this singular wedding venue are happy to accommodate personal preferences. They enjoy customizing each event taking place at Summerhill Pyramid Winery. An event planning service is available, and this means that couples can benefit from professional guidance to ensure that the day lives up to the billing. In-house culinary specialists can craft a variety of dishes to please guests, while wines from the vineyard can also be enjoyed.

History

The history of this property is rich and deep, with some records dating back to 1904 when it was purchased by Henry Cecil Mallam. The actual vineyard was bought in 1986 by a family called the Cipes, and it produces organic wines. This property has many elements to it, so it is little wonder couples view it as a destination of choice. Perhaps your romantic celebration of commitment and togetherness could be the next big celebration to take place here.

    Amazing Venue and caring staff

    We could not recommend Summerhill anymore to anyone for a wedding venue. The whole space is perfectly designed to having amazing lighting the entire day. The venue is such an elegant and classy space that can hold a large number of people but still also able to make our 35 person wedding feel close and intimate. The wine and food were amazing and super accommodating to our of our dietary restrictions. The event staff helped make our day easy and hassle free while also helping us with any concern or issue arose. Everything about our specials day went so much better then we could have imagined and Summerhill did a lot to make that happen. Even if you are not that into wine this venue provides so much more then that. Even during the stress of covid looming over our wedding Summerhill always made us feel like no matter what happened we would be ok. Truly felt like they were on our side to assist in any way they could.

    Summerhill Pyramid Winery's reply:

    Thank you so much for sharing your much awaited special day with us Briana & Dennis. It was an absolute pleasure to work with both of you on such a special day for the two of you! Happiest of wishes to you both :)

    Summerhill made our dream elopement come true!

    Not only is Summerhill Pyramid Winery one of the most beautiful venues for a wedding…but the staff was absolutely unreal at taking care of us and making sure our elopement was perfect! Nicole was so kind and helpful right from the first email, made it easy to postpone due to covid restrictions, calmed our nerves about the weather forecast, rolled with it when we were an hour late for our ceremony, helped me before walking down the aisle, helped with our sabrage and even accommodated us with a late bistro seating!

    Our wedding was more than we even hoped for and it may not have been if it wasn’t for Nicole & the other staff! From the bottom of our hearts….thank you!

    Also, the bistro staff were amazing! So kind and helpful and even held our food so we could sneak away from the table for a few more pics between ordering and eating! The food was absolutely incredible and the dessert was a wonderful and delicious surprise!

    So again….thank you to Nicole and everyone at Summerhill who made our day so perfect!! We can’t recommend them enough!!!

    Incredibly Beautiful

    We could not have asked for a more perfect venue to celebrate our Wedding. Not only does Summerhill offer the most picturesque backdrop for a ceremony, the staff and service was phenomenal. We received endless compliments about the food and the wine. I would recommend Summerhill to anyone wanting a perfect winery wedding.

    Incredible scenery with great support staff!

    When we wanted to do a wedding on a winery for over 120 people in the Kelowna area, there weren't that many options. Thankfully, Summerhill was one of them, as the views were breathtaking, the food was amazing, and the service was fantastic!

    The venue is absolutely gorgeous. It overlooks their vineyard which overlooks the lake and the mountains. They have a beautiful lawn for the ceremony, and the reception was in their hall which exudes a lot of warmth. They provided beautiful white chairs for the ceremony, the reception hall was air conditioned for the Okanagan summer heat, and the guests can also visit the vineyards as they please (apparently not all wineries do that when they have weddings!)

    Foodwise, they are fantastic. Every vendor we spoke with, when we mention Summerhill, they all mention the view and the food. And it did not disappoint! Great flavours and also very accommodating. Only thing though, is that they don't offer a tasting of the wedding food in advance (I'm guessing because of the volume of weddings they have?), but they do offer a tasting of their bistro's food. Luckily, they were able to cook something that was similar to what we'd have at the wedding, thus we were able to make some adjustments, which they did accordingly.

    Livi is the main event manager we worked with. She is extremely knowledgeable and she makes great suggestions when we didn't know what to do (ie. how much food for the cocktail hour, Cipes toast, etc.). She was also very accommodating to some of our requests (specifying the wine types, food adjustments). They do a LOT of events and weddings there, so it's important that you do read through the events order when they send it back to you (ie. food, etc.) thoroughly, as there were occasional small mistakes/typos, and each time we mention it, Livi updates it accordingly. With their volume, they can at times be a bit slow to respond when the wedding was far out, but Livi becomes extra extra attentive when it's crunch time. She attended to all our questions, and she was there the day of the wedding to ensure everything ran smoothly!

    Overall, we were so happy that we did our wedding there! All the guests LOVED the venue (as it was beautiful and warm), the food, and the service. Livi was a true professional and a pleasure to work with (accommodating and never losing her cool), and the cost was very reasonable for what you get!

    Stunning View, Amazing Food & Great Team

    We hosted our wedding reception at Summer Hill and it was everything we imagined and more! The wedding planning team was accommodating, professional, organized and made sure all the little details were taken care of so we could spend time with our guests. The view was stunning, overlooking the vineyard and lake. Almost all our guests were from out of town and I don’t think we could have had any more comments on how gorgeous the winery venue was. The food and wine was amazing, all high quality, local and delicious. We sabered sparkling wine and it was a hit with our guests and definitely recommend doing this. We can’t wait to come back and visit :)

    Wonderful Wedding Venue!

    We absolutely LOVE Summerhill Winery; from the food, the wine (of course), the atmosphere, but most of all, the wonderful people. The winery owners and staff are so gracious, welcoming to all and so accommodating. Nicole, the wedding coordinator, is so wonderful to work with; she is fun, very knowledgeable and a very welcome addition to the wedding side of the winery. You can tell everyone at Summerhill loves what they do, as it truly shows. And on top of it all, the location/venue is beyond stunning!!

    Beautiful August wedding

    Our wedding was absolutely perfect. Summerhill is a gorgeous venue with incredible staff. We had our ceremony out on the lawn overlooking the water and the reception was inside with a panoramic view.
