We already know why the Maritimes is such great place to get married and we're going to tell you why!
1. The Ocean
In most places you’re never more than an hour away from the rising and falling tides. Kayaking the shoreline and hours later walking that same stretch of beach. Crashing waves and stunning seascapes make for the most amazing ceremony backdrop. Sunset photos on the beach with cotton candy skies are as romantic as it can get.
2. Maritime Hospitality
We really do know how to throw a party! Spending time with each other and having a good time flows through our veins. Bring in a fiddle and everyone is sure to be toe tapping the night away. Kitchen parities are not just a rumour either, often referred to as a "céilidh" ("a visit") in gaelic friends and families often visit with one another, eat, drink and enjoy each other’s company into the wee hours of the morning.
3. The Growing Wedding Industry
People are catching on that our little corner of the world is an unforgettable place to say “I do” and our wedding vendors are incredibly talented. From caterers to florists to rental companies there is no shortage of creatives who are filled with innovative and modern ideas to contribute to an unforgettable wedding. And we’re sure to sprinkle a touch.
4. Loads of Things for your Guests To Do
Atlantic Canada has so many tourist attractions for you and your guests to enjoy. Take a boat whale watching, tour historic fortresses, golf the rolling highlands, and comb the endless beaches.
5. Gorgeous Venues
From seaside heritage barns to modern farmers markets overlooking the halifax harbour. Unforgettable venues is something we have in abundance. No matter what your desire, the maritimes is sure to have something that makes your hearts flutter.
6. Stunning Landscapes
Going hand in hand with the seaside, the Maritimes has many stunning vistas. A few of our favourites include the rolling hills of the Cape Breton Highlands, Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick and the red sand beaches of Prince Edward Island.
7. Wine Country
Nova Scotia has developed a booming wine industry with over _ wineries . Our prize winning wine makers have even developed our own exclusive wine called Tidal Bay a crisp, aromatic white that pairs amazingly with our fresh seafood. And is perfect to sip on as your explore between the vines.
8. Amazing Seafood
Lobster, scallops, mussels, it never ends! Many of our couples serve their guests some kind of seafood to celebrate our amazing resource. Most of us even know a fisherman, but contrary to popular belief, we’re not ALL fisherman. And if seafood isn’t your thing our thriving agricultural & food industries creates the most scrumptious farm to table meals.
What more is there to say? Creating memories here is easy and making your wedding one of them is something you surely will not forget.
