Celebration Venues

However you dream of celebrating, we can make it a reality. If you want wind in your hair and soft sand in your toes — we can do that. An elegant dinner with delicate floral arrangements? We can do that too. We’re here to help set you up right for something unforgettable.

Elopements

If it feels natural, do it! If keeping it simple is your style, find a Tofino elopement package designed just for the two of you.

Beach Weddings

Invite friends and family to a ceremony by the sea — our beaches are open year-round. You won’t need a permit for a ceremony on the beach (just your wedding license). However, if the beach is your venue, remember that they are public property — you may get a few friendly onlookers.

Now, a West Coast weather tip: please plan for variable conditions and remind your guests to dress accordingly. Colourful gumboots – or flip flops – and a wedding dress are a classic Tofino look.

Vendors

Find a DJ to keep the dance floor moving until the end of the night, a photographer to capture every moment or a local commissioner to make it all official. From first kiss to last call, Tofino’s talented events community can accommodate your entire day.

LGBT (B.C. laws)

Yes, we do. Same-sex marriage is legal in British Columbia, and we pride ourselves on being an inclusive community. Apply for your marriage license here.
