Where to Elope in Victoria BC

Where to Elope in Victoria BC
June 26, 2019 Riana Ang-Canning

Planning a small wedding or elopement in Victoria but not sure where to hold it? We’re sharing our top 20 picks for where to elope in Victoria BC below!

Elopements are some of our favourite weddings to officiate. We love an intimate ceremony where the focus is just on the couple. And with elopements, you often are spoilt for choice when it comes to location. You don’t have to find a space that will hold your hundreds of guests, with lots of parking available, and with room for an archway and DJ table. You can find a place that’s unique and just for you two.

Check out some of our favourite Victoria elopement locations below! Note that not all of these locations are in the city of Victoria but they are close by.

PS: And if you’re getting married in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary or Seattle, scroll to the bottom for more elopement locations in your city!
