Elmhirsts Wedding and Horse


We had a fabulous wedding. The scenery was gorgeous, the cottage comfortable and clean, the rehearsal BBQ delicious and the wedding dinner spectacular! You were so organized and accommodating!

Dinner is a time for hosting your guests to a fine meal, wine accompaniments and perhaps a dessert wine. Prior to your wedding day you will meet with our Chef to design your menu; walk through the formalities and the flow of your day with our Wedding Specialist and become comfortable with all your wedding arrangements.

Elmhirst’s Resort welcomes weddings, renewal of vows and anniversaries, year round. Fall celebrations enjoy a colourful foliage background while winter weddings are filled with a wonderland of whites, lights, and romantic snow-kissed scenes. The gardens are perfect for summer affairs.  We want your wedding to be a day to remember…forever!

“The specialty drinks for the bridal party was a nice touch for the photos. We had a perfect wedding – and our guests were very happy with the accommodations, boat ride, food, and of course the great scenery.”

We invite you to visit the resort and picture yourself getting married on the grounds. We are delighted to tour you through the various options available on site and design your special day to suit your personality.
