Weddings & Elopements
You want to elope somewhere around Toronto but want something outside the city.
Ontario is packed with little pieces of paradise that are perfect for an elopement that’s outside the city. A more natural vibe.
This mighty natural wonder in Wellington County, just a short drive from Guelph, offers breathtaking views of the Grand River as it winds through the gorge. The crystal clear water and towering cliffs make for a powerful and picturesque setting.
The Elora Gorge is a spectacular natural area with imposing rocky cliffs, abundant water, and lush greenery. It offers so many entertaining things, such as hiking along the gorge, swimming in the river, and taking a scenic float trip. The surrounding landscape is serene and peaceful, ideal for a picnic on a sunny day. The gorge is also popular for kayaking, fishing, and rock climbing. With that said, let’s turn your session into an unforgettable adventure!
Erieau Beach is located on the northeastern shore of Lake Erie. The town has a fine local brewery and some excellent perch and pickerel, and it is charming, laid-back, and busy in the summer.
Erieau is similar to other beach towns in the region in that it has a charming shoreline restaurant, a bustling marina, cabins, cottages for renting, and a few unusual boutiques for shopping. However, it differs greatly from the typical beach resorts tourists flock to throughout the summer. There’s a lot less of a “tourist trap” vibe and a lot more of a “beer in hand, toes in the water” country tune vibe.
So, if you want to experience the laid-back beach wedding or elopement, I suggest Erieau!
Rondeau Provincial Park in London, Ontario, Canada’s second oldest public park. You’ll like every bit of its many charms. To begin, this site has 11 kilometers of sandy beaches around Lake Erie. Fishing, canoeing, windsurfing, and kiteboarding are just a few of the watersports that could be enjoyed on the lake.
The Park is a well-known spot for bird observation worldwide. Tourists from all around London, Ontario, Canada, and the United States of America come here to enjoy its natural beauty
On the other hand, there are many winter sports to choose from, such as ice fishing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and more if you are doing a winter wedding or elopement!
Beautiful scenery may be found in either direction around Lake St. Claire. The idyllic lakeside setting was created for the relaxation of the mind so it is perfect for a beautifully intimate wedding. Grassy areas on both the lakeshore and the roadside, providing plenty of room for picnics, activities, and panoramic views.
The Belle River Lakehouse Retreat is a perfect place to stay in Lake St. Claire for your wedding or elopement.. Not only will you not need to bring anything, but you and your guests (if you have any) will feel right at home here! The lakeside and courtyard are stunning. The magnificent routes are always worth exploring if you want to stay a while and go adventure.,
