Vancouver Venues: Brock House Weddings
Brock House Weddings
The Brock House, also referred to as Brock House Restaurant, is a classic Vancouver wedding venue located in Point Grey. It is a beach-front wedding venue located at Jericho Beach in Vancouver’s West Side.
We’ve photographed many Brock House weddings over the years and love the location for its close proximity to the beach and surrounding nature. Brock House weddings don’t just take place in the Spring and Summer, they can accommodate weddings in the Fall and Winter as well. In the warmer months, you’ll find most wedding take place outdoors on the north lawn, while Brock House weddings during colder periods take place indoors, usually in their conservatory.
They offer a large bridal room for getting ready or for the wedding party to relax in between scheduled events on the wedding day. There is also a second floor at the Brock House that can cater to smaller weddings and other family celebrations. In some case, the upstairs may remain open to the public while a wedding in taking place downstairs on the first floor.
For Brock House weddings, they provides a number of free parking spots for wedding guests, but if the lot fills up, there is the option of free street parking (can be difficult to find during the summer), or a paid public parking lot that is about half a block away. It best to let guests know to arrive early to find parking during that warmer months because spots can fill up quickly due to its close proximity to the beach.
This venue is a great choice if you love heritage venues in a natural setting. It’s very directly adjacent to Jericho Beach, which is a great place for photos of family and your own wedding portraits – just remember to bring another set of shoes for walking on grass and the sandy beach. Down the road is the UBC Endowment Lands, which is also another great option for photos on wet days. Downtown Vancouver is only a 15min drive, so it’s not to far off from a number of excellent photography locations if you want a more urban Vancouver theme to your wedding photos. Granville Island is another popular option for wedding photos, and it’s just a 10-15min drive away. There are also several other nearby beaches and parks, so you’re never too far from numerous options for wedding photography.
