Gorgeous venue for a wedding. I was at Nithridge Estate for a wedding from Vancouver and it didn’t fail to impress me. It was tucked away in the middle of a residential area, but the signage was perfect. The space for perfect for a ceremony and a tent for dinner and the rest of the events. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a venue which is off the beaten path. Everything was perfect! Glad to have visited this quaint location.

We got married here on July 15, 2017 and could not have picked a better venue. Marlene and Terry (the owners) were extremely helpful through the whole process. Questions were answered timely and we got all the info we requested. Never had one issue with them. The food was amazing and not one person complained. The venue was decorated exactly as I had asked and then some. We could not have asked for a more perfect night. If you are thinking about having your special day here, we highly recommend it….you won’t be sorry.

Amazing place to host a wedding, what I love most about capturing celebrations here is that it sits alongside the river and you feel like you are elegantly in another world for the day. Being able to just have your wedding there during the day is a huge bonus, it’s intimate, beautiful, and you can’t go wrong planning your wedding here!

The perfect setting. The estate is incredibly beautiful. Every where you look, you’ll find magical little spot that will imprint in your mind. Terry and Marley are the most gracious and generous hosts. What a delight it was to plan our day with them. They took great care of us and brought experienced professional insite to make sure our wedding was perfect, and it was.
