Use the natural beauty of the Canadian Rockies in your luxury wedding.

Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies is home to some of the most pristine and stunning scenery in Western Canada, making the park a prime location for a luxury wedding. Use the wild and untamed mountain landscapes as the perfect backdrop to your special day.

Having your wedding in the Canadian wilderness does not mean you have to skimp on luxury items or mean that you will be reduced to a bare bones ceremony. If you are looking for luxury, the Canadian Rockies hosts a castle on the lake, world famous golf courses, and luxurious hunting lodges all nestled into priceless views of the Canadian Rockies.

Discovering the best of Banff

While the scenery of Banff National Park would make a nice setting for simple weddings, that does not mean that the park doesn’t offer the commodities for luxury weddings. For couples who want to go all out on their special day, there are plenty of options in Banff.

Some of the world’s best golf courses, ski resorts, spas, and salons are located in the Canadian Rockies. The Banff area offers everything from fancy castles to lavish lodges for accomodations.

For a fairy-tale wedding, look no farther than the Chateau Lake Louise also known as the impressive building that resembles a castle. The wedding and reception terrace at the chateau offers lake side views of Lake Louise and stunning views of the Rocky Mountains engulfing the area.

It is a wise choice to make reservations for the castle and other luxury locations at least a year in advance since they tend to fill up quickly. A local wedding planner can help you turn your dreams into reality by arranging for musical accompaniment and goodies between the ceremony and reception.

Couples should consider looking into a spa package before the ceremony. The Banff area spas offer fantastic services to help you relax before your big day. Spa packages offer couples massages which will bring you and your soon-to-be-spouse even closer before saying your vows.

Sailing off into the sunset

Banff is the perfect location in any seaon.

Charter a luxury yacht on Lake Minnewanka to set off into the sunset with your spouse and your guests. The lake is located only 10 minutes from the town of Banff but is well known for its secluded location and plethora of wildlife. Also, the altitude of Lake Minnewanka allows for warm early fall weddings because it is not located high in the mountains.

Lake Minnewanka is one of the few lakes that allows motorized boats per the regulations of Park Canada. Sweet Occassions is the only company that can charter a yacht on the crystal clear waters. The cruise fits up to 30 guests for an afternoon or evening of champagne toasts and delicious hors-d’oeuvours.

Getting around

Some couples worry that accessing luxury items is more difficult in the wilderness of the Canadian Rockies, however, they should put their fears behind them. Banff and surrounding towns are located to major highway systems allowing for easy access to more populated areas.

The town of Banff and other areas in the Canadian Rockies have outstanding facitilites for luxury weddings and are easily accessible for importing desired weddings items.
