If you are planning a Vancouver Club wedding and still need a photographer I’d love to hear from you! Please use the contact form at the top of the page or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am currently booking Vancouver and Cape Town weddings for this year and next.
Travis and Areiyu chose to have their wedding at the Vancouver Club, one of the most elegant and luxurious venues in the city. Below is a review of sorts of this stunning location in the heart of Vancouver. The Vancouver Club is extremely versatile and does a fantastic job at blending impeccable service and cuisine. You are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing which room you want to have your wedding ceremony and reception and the capacity of each room is different. The university rooms are probably the most popular for wedding ceremonies and for good reason given the clean lines, stunning fireplace and intimate feel to them. With the capacity for 125 seated guests, the University rooms are the perfect choice for medium sized guest lists. The lobby of the Vancouver club is a less popular but equally impressive choice for your wedding ceremony. Guest walk in off the street and are immediately in the ceremony space. The Georgian room is similiar to the University rooms but is smaller with a seating capacity of 75. I prefer this room for wedding photos as it allows more natural light in through the massive windows running the length of the room. One half of the Georgian room can also double as a bridal suite and this is where Areiyu and her sisters got ready in the morning. The light and clean walls made for dreamy wedding portraits. Lastly, the Grand Ballroom is most often used for wedding receptions but can also double as a ceremony location. The room is iconic in Vancouver and instantly recognizable.
Wedding receptions take place in two spaces at the Vancouver and their quite different. The Grand Ballroom is the most popular and ideal for larger groups. The space can be transformed based on your vision and allows for quite a bit of flexibility. In my opinion the rooms works best for weddings a bit more on the moodier side. Candles looks amazing in here! The other reception venue is the atrium. My personal favorite due to the abundance of natural light, this space is catered towards more intimate affairs. With help from Celsia Florists (one of the top florist in Vancouver), Stephanie from Sweetheart events transformed this space for Travis and Areiyu’s wedding. A great personal touch was the bride and groom’s names written in calligraphy on the back of their chairs. The dancing that followed the reception happened inside next to the bar – convenient for those guest drinking!
Along with a great range of spaces to get married in, the Vancouver Club is perfect for wedding photos. The front stairs are ideal for group shots and the façade is iconic. The lighting out front is great regardless of the weather and even in bright sunny days provides some shade due to its location along Hastings street. For those couples wanting a different setting for wedding portraits the coal harbour waterfront and views of the north shore mountains are only a five minute walk away. Once inside the venue there are plenty of corners for moody portraits and while not all of them have lots of natural light it allows for plenty of creativity.
