For a Breaktaking Outdoor Wedding Minimize

At Kiwi Cove Lodge you can enjoy your Family Wedding to the fullest.  You want your Wedding to be everything you imagined.   You want to remember it as the happy celebration it should be! That means sharing quality time with family and friends in a beautiful outdoor setting  where all you need do . . .  is enjoy!

Imagine your wedding ceremony in the great outdoors, fiancé by your side, surrounded by family and friends in picturesque Kiwi Cove, a ten-acre waterfront property situated at the head of Ladysmith Harbour. Shaded woodlands, breezy meadows and a real kiwi vineyard provide a tranquil setting for you to exchange your marriage vows. Eagles fly high overhead while sea, sky and the gentle peaks of Vancouver Island create a quietly stunning backdrop for the entire event.

Destination Wedding for up to 50 persons

For your family wedding the spacious 12-room Kiwi Cove Lodge comfortably accommodates in rooms that are casually elegant .In addition, there’s the fully equipped Kiwi Cottage, great for families with kids.

In the morning, gather together for a full breakfast featuring made-from-scratch baking, homemade yogurt and kiwi preserves, fresh-from-the-garden fruits and veggies, as well as heartier fare. Evening meals are also a delight for the group and can be arranged in advance.

Before and after the wedding, have fun outdoors! Take time to explore Kiwi Cove: sit on a log on the beach and enjoy the view up the harbor and the sea birds. Stroll atop the dykes where land meets sea, meander through the remains of an old apple orchard. Bring your favorite games along like bocci ball or croquette. Unwind in the hot-tub or spend an evening snuggled around a crackling blaze at the outdoor fire pit. Kiwi Cove provides many opportunities to socialize and relax.

“I am always pleased when I am asked to officiate at a wedding at Kiwi Cove Lodge. The setting is so unique and Peggy and Doug are excellent hosts who make certain the wedding is everything a couple could desire.” Irene Deschene, Marriage Commissioner

“Our wedding at Kiwi Cove was a dream come true! We couldn’t have asked for a more scenic location, and Peggy made it a breeze for us to organize too. Every detail was taken care of seamlessly by Peggy and team during our stay, from delivering breakfast to the bridal room, to booking the harpist, to setting up the firepit for the s’mores late night party. Everyone that sees our wedding photos is blown away by the beautiful backdrop of kiwi vines, the ocean and mountains, and says that it looks like the pages of a bridal magazine or a movie! Kiwi Cove is a hidden gem wedding venue that we’re thrilled to have discovered and shared with our friends and family.”  Nicola & Ron

"Kiwi Cove Lodge was the perfect place for us to have our family and friends together for our wedding weekend. It is such a beautiful location for our ceremony.” Robyn & Alan
