Are you planning a Queen Elizabeth Park wedding in Vancouver? As a full time wedding photographer for the past 8 years I am very familiar with the park and can say it is one of the best places in the city for wedding photos. Below are a selection of images from various weddings along with some more information on the three venues within the park.
Not only is Queen Elizabeth Park one of the more popular parks in Vancouver to visit, it makes a great backdrop for weddings. The three venues inside the park as as follows:
Bloedel Conservatory – My favorite ceremony venue for winter weddings due to the warm temperature inside :) While only suitable for very intimate weddings due to the space constraints, the conservatory is one of the more unique spaces to get married in Vancouver. They allow for either a morning or evening time slot outside of normal business hours. I highly recommend trying to get married during the morning time slot as the lighting is much better. The rates for a Queen Elizabeth park wedding at Bloedel conservatory are a very affordable $500.
Celebration Pavilion – Another ceremony only venue – the celebration pavilion is a stunningly modern space that works well both summer and winter weddings. Three time slots throughout the day are available for $1800 and included high end chiavari chairs among other things.
Seasons in the Park Restaurant – Seasons in the park Restaurant is one of the best restaurants in Vancouver and can host both wedding ceremonies and receptions. Like the other venues in Queen Elizabeth Park it is more suited to intimate weddings. The biggest attraction of having a wedding at Seasons in the Park outside of the amazing food is the unparalleled views of Vancouver.
When it comes to wedding photos at Queen Elizabeth Park you are spoiled for choice. The actual gardens are very popular but in my opinion are best suited for cloudy days. The lack of shade makes shooting in sunny conditions very difficult. My preferred areas at queen e park are on the outskirts where you can find groves of trees filled with ferns.
