Small Weddings, Elopements and Vow Renewals

BOOK DIRECT - Best Price

We have an idyllic setting - refered to by one of our guests as, "You live in a Postcard

wedding-elopment-vows-victoria-bcLooking for that beautiful special spot you'll always cherish to exchange your vows? Birds of a Feather is an affordable yet elegant solution if you want to do something special for yourselves without the acute sticker shock of  a traditional wedding typically costing $25,000+. That's a big chunk of change to spend on a one-day event.

Birds of a Feather is located on a beautiful, peaceful and romantic oceanfront setting 17 km (20 minutes) around the harbour from downtown Victoria facing the majestic Olympic mountains. Our shoreline is the Esquimalt Lagoon, a Migratory Bird Sanctaury home to many birds including swans, great blue herons and kingfishers, and otters. Selleck Creek flows through our property in to the ocean lagoon where the birds come to drink fresh water. Adjoining a good size oceanfront lawn with beautiful stone flower beds our private dock and/or grounds can facilitate groups of up to 12 people in a wedding party. We set this standard so as to preserve the intimacy of the property for our other guests. 

If, however, your party has booked all 3 of our suites we are open to discuss a slightly larger number havng regard for all of the circumstances.

Weather providing your ceremony would be outside on our dock, or on our waterfront lawn. Inclement weather contingency would be our waterfront sunroom.

To ensure the privacy of our guests and the intamacy of our B&B we only permit guests staying with us to use our facilities for small weddings, elopments, and renewing their vows. It is not our intention to host large weddings or parties, nor are we wedding planners. Our setting and facilities are intended to be simple, initimate and romantic.

After the ceromony you can walk down to the beach, canoe or kayak the lagoon - some couples have rowed in to town - explore the old growth forest, Hatley Castle and gardens (our neighbour) or simply enjoy our grounds, or retreat to your luxurious oceanfront corner suite.

Complete 1-night Honeymoon Package $785.00 + taxes (year round) includes:

  • 1-night (extra nights can be added) stay in our oceanfront Honeymoon Suite - No discounts if you use a different suite, or only wish to use the location without staying with us
