The Vancouver Club is one of the city’s oldest private establishments. In terms of Vancouver wedding venues, it is one of the most historic and well known locations for both large and small weddings as well as private event celebrations.
The Vancouver Club was built around 1914 and is located on West Hastings Street between Burrard St. and Hornby. It Edwardian style architecture stands out amidst the more contemporary buildings that surround it in Vancouver’s downtown core.
A wedding at the Vancouver Club is loved by those who appreciate the old world charms of the early 20th century. The walls and ceilings are old and ornate, and each room has its own unique story to tell.
All events we’ve photographed over the years at the Vancouver Club have been top notch. Their professional and courteous coordinators and teams of servers and food staff are what clients and their guests talk about long after the event.
You can get lost inside the corridors of the Vancouver Club, but that’s part of the experience. Despite photographing wedding there for many years, I still get lost every once in a while. But each time, I find something new about the Vancouver Club that grows by appreciation for it.
