Bilston Creek Farms

Hello, I’m in love.

Last week I visited Bilston Creek Farms and it was the most whimsical wedding venue a girl could ask to see. It very much reminds me of a more intimate and exclusive version of one of the prettiest venues back in Niagara.

One of the most special parts about Bilston Creek Farms is the heritage.  As one of the oldest farms and settlements outside of Fort Victoria, the venue boasts original barn board, some of BC’s oldest apple trees and a historical presence that can’t be matched.

When you have your wedding at Bilston Creek Farms, you get exclusive use of the venue. The best part about the venue is that you can dine al fresco under the orchard trees. If you prefer to be inside, they also have the most stunning barn. The barn is a great Plan B back up space as well.

Nestled into the property are these amazing glamping tents that you can rent out as well.
