A Testimony to Weddings at The Gardens

Testimonials from happy couples who celebrated their big day at The Butchart Gardens

Every year between January 15th and March 31st we host beautiful weddings in the Spring Prelude garden.


This special indoor garden features flagstone paths, water fountains and ponds, flowering cherries and witch hazels and beds of daffodils and tulips. This is truly a beautiful setting to celebrate a wedding.

Don't take our word for it, though. These testimonials are from brides and grooms who have celebrated their big day at The Butchart Gardens.

"Our wedding day was everything we hoped it would be. What a beautiful venue! We plan to visit the Spring Prelude Garden every year on our anniversary and reminisce about our special day."    - Solange & Ray

"Thanks again for the help in the process. Every guest enjoyed visiting the garden so much! It was our pleasure to have the wedding there. I'll recommend the garden to all our friend thinking about wedding venues."     - L & J

"Thank you, Sarah. It was an absolute pleasure working with you and Alison and April - and our wedding was perfect in every way. Thank you so very much!!!!"  
- Amber and Keith

"Having our wedding at the Butchart Gardens, and having Sarah be our “right-hand girl” made the best memories we could have ever had! Sarah and her team were so friendly and fun to work with, and accommodated our every whim. She made sure everything was perfect, from the day-before rehearsal to our final departure after our reception dinner. As we had to plan our wedding from Drumheller AB, Sarah was in communication with us with every question at every stage, and she managed the coordination with all of our outside vendors impeccably! There was no question we had that Sarah didn’t have an answer for, she truly made our wedding planning seamless! Every element had it’s own highlights..the Bridges, stepping stones, Japanese Garden, Sunken Garden, even the cherry blossoms were flourishing. The transformation from the Blue Poppy Restaurant to the Spring Prelude Garden was spectacular, and the night illumination dazzling! We’d also like to extend a special Thank You and compliment to the Chef, culinary and service staff.  Everything from the service to presentation to the deliciousness of every appetizer and every entrée wasn’t just food and dinner..it was a dining experience! Fan-tabulous! If we had it to do all over again, we wouldn’t change a thing, our wedding was truly enchanting! Countless compliments from our guests, and countless memories for us!"
