Quebec City’s combination of old-world European charm and stunning scenery year-round will create many memorable moments on your special day, making it the perfect locale for a destination wedding. Here are some noteworthy venues to celebrate the launch of your new life together.
Aquarium Du Quebec
Say “I do” in front of more than 10,000 wedding guests – of the marine animal variety. At the Aquarium du Quebec, a unique environment not only provides a stunning backdrop for your wedding pictures, but also guarantees your guests will never get bored. Self-guided tours are encouraged, while entertainment provided by harbor seals is also available for those who want to take it to the next level. Five reception rooms accommodate groups from 50–175, while the terrace provides spectacular year-round views of the Québec Bridge.
Parc de la Chute-Montmorency
For unobstructed views of Quebec City, Montmorency Falls, and Île d’Orléans, there’s no better spot than the historic Parc de la Chute-Montmorency. Its romantic English-style manor will lend a touch of rustic chic to your special day without sacrificing contemporary comfort. Numerous balconies and eight reception halls offer gorgeous views of the 272-foot high Montmorency Falls – which are substantially higher than the world-famous Niagara Falls.
The Morrin Cultural Centre
Add a touch of Victorian refinement to your wedding by hosting it at the Morrin Cultural Centre, constructed more than 300 years ago as a military barracks. Indulge your inner bibliophile in one of the world’s most beautiful libraries, where you and your guests can clink champagne glasses while surrounded by 20,000 books. Or you could throw a larger bash in College Hall, the center’s most spacious room, and home to many a choral concert and intellectual debate when it was Quebec’s first English-language college in the late 19th century. Couples with a dark sense of humor may also consider getting hitched in the Exhibit Room – Canada’s first modern prison.
Musée de l’Amérique Francophone
If large-scale grandeur and elegance are what you’re aiming for, consider holding your wedding at the breathtaking 19th-century chapel in the the Musée de l’Amérique Francophone. White marble altars, red cherry woodwork, magnificent stained-glass windows, and Canada’s largest collection of relics are a visually stunning tribute to Quebec’s religious, cultural, and architectural heritage – and an unforgettable backdrop for your special day.
For convenient access to wedding venues across Quebec City, consider booking your guests’ stay at the Hilton Quebec, where they will be only steps away from the numerous amenities of the city’s Old Town.
