Why choose Galiano Island as a destination wedding venue? Because an island wedding is exotic and out of the ordinary. It’s the embodiment of a fun-packed few days to celebrate and remember the biggest day of your life; with dear friends and loving family who rarely get together. So why not make it a true holiday for everyone? Galiano is likely a new destination for many so that puts adventure in the equation as well!

The easy journey by ferry is part of the unique experience of an island wedding. The island is located a short distance between the Mainland and Vancouver Island but feels like a different world. It will only take you 55 minutes by ferry and 15 by float plane from Vancouver as well as just 90 minutes from Swarz Bay near Victoria. Galiano is a world of enchantment where stress just falls away and dreams come true.
