Garden Plantings

One of the best wedding venues in BC, Minter Gardens was created and envisioned by Master Gardener, Brian Minter and his wife, Fay, in the late 1970s. Officially opening in May 1980, the gardens have been a favored location for wedding receptions and ceremonies ever since. 

With 32 acres of woodland dotted with flowering shrubs and annuals, combined with pathways, themed areas and green, open spaces, this location depicts harmony in nature. Throughout the seasons, a rich tapestry of color unfolds – from rhododendrons, tulips and lilies, to fragrant rose blooms and boldly sculpted topiaries. Whether visited in Spring, Summer or Fall, it is always easy to enjoy, admire and appreciate.
