Resort Wedding

Sooke Harbour House Hotel & Resort takes the cake when it comes to Victoria weddings. Perched on a bluff overlooking the ocean and the Olympic Mountains, this 28-room boutique hotel has won many awards for its accommodations and dining. In 2015, it was awarded the honour of being chosen as one of the top 30 loveliest wedding venues in Canada by WeddingBells.

We have been hosting weddings for over 33 years and are deservedly rated as one of Canada’s most spectacular wedding venues.

Reception Venues

The Potlatch Room

Our Women of the Woods welcoming totem will greet you as you first enter our Potlatch Room. The First Nations of our area held traditional celebrations called Potlatchs to mark significant events in family’s lives. Join the Philips Family, innkeepers of Sooke Harbour House, in a wedding venue as west coast and as magical as it gets. The Potlatch Room features a beach stone fireplace, cedar walls, douglas fir details, and hardwood floors perfect for dancing upon. The presence of First Nations art in the carvings, glass window etchings, button blankets, and paintings is majestic and takes you back in time. Crisp white linens, complimented by red and black, appeal to the eye. The Potlatch Room is ideal for dinners and receptions with dancing. Plated dinner service is available for up to 60 people. Bar service and stand up hors d’oeuvres receptions are available for up to 80 guests.
