Wedding venue with cultural significance and unique symbolic elements



A traditional Chinese setting in the middle of Vancouver, Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden is a place of refined splendour and inspiration. From the detailed latticework to the jade-coloured pond, all the elements in the garden are arranged with harmony in mind. A wealth of symbolic and aesthetic features add to the cultural significance of the space and make it a truly beautiful, memorable venue for both traditional and non-traditional weddings.

Whether you are looking to rent just one hall or the entire garden, the courtyards, pavilions, and covered walkways make both indoor and outdoor weddings possible in any season and atmosphere. In the evening glow of lanterns, the space becomes particularly enchanting, and provides an intimate setting for your celebration.
