Searching for a wedding venue is a very exciting experience. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of you and your partners life, so it deserves a lot of thought and planning.

Here are the top picks for intimate wedding venues in Calgary.


From the historic Reader Rock Garden to the modern CharBar, there are so many great options to explore and if you feel overwhelmed, consider hiring a wedding planner. Some wedding venues offer a bridal and groom room for getting ready and others do not. If you need to pay for a room, be sure to pick a room with a lot of natural light to get the best getting ready images possible from your photographer. If possible, make sure you get a room with optimal space and keep in mind how much room is needed for your photographer, makeup and hair artist as well as all of your wedding party.


As an engaged couple, there are so many amazing adventures ahead with planning your wedding. Please feel free to connect with me, a Calgary wedding photographer and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have, I would love to hear from you.
