Weddings at Bow Falls

Weddings from €1,639

Overview

Featuring the iconic Banff Springs Hotel as a part of its backdrop, Bow Falls is an utterly spectacular and picturesque setting for your wedding day, framed by snowy mountain peaks, lush emerald forests and a beautiful little lake.

One of Banff’s must-see spots, the scenery here it simply outstanding, and remains so throughout all the seasons of the year; our favourite time of year to visit Bow Falls has to be the winter – the entire area is sprinkled in powdery white snow which frames majestic icy glaciers and frozen blue lakes - your very own winter wonderland. Situated at the foot of the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, the photography opportunities here are endless, and you’ll be promised a very magical, sublime wedding day.

You can choose from three luxurious wedding packages, starting with our Classic Wedding which features a personal wedding coordinator, a bridal bouquet, grooms buttonhole, sparkling wine for the newlyweds and transfers, in addition to all the legal work and a marriage officiate so you don’t need to worry about a thing. If you upgrade to our Premier package, you’ll also be treated to a beautiful, hand-made wedding cake and a professional photographer to capture the utter beauty of this setting. We think that the Luxury Wedding package creates a very memorable and special celebration, featuring a bridal hair & makeup appointment, a wonderful seasonal tour of this breath-taking region and champagne for the newlyweds to enjoy back at the hotel.

The location accommodates a maximum of 20 people, so it’s perfect if you want a small ceremony with your closest friends and family present to help you celebrate. (Not available between July-Sept)
