If you want a wedding in a spectacular setting that is made for memories, look no further than La Grange de la Gatineau. You will be in a completely private setting - no other events will be held at La Grange on your day. The breathtaking Grange de la Gatineau will bring you and  your guests' memories for a lifetime. 

 

On your special day you deserve a most special setting. La Grange de la Gatineau offers the elegance of a historic log building furnished with antiques in a riverside setting nestled in the forest for a romantic outdoor wedding ceremony or inside the Great Hall with views across lawns, river and forest.

The Great Hall

The Great Hall is an awe-inspiring cathedral-like room that looks over the lawns and river - a wonderful setting for the wedding ceremony, reception, dinner or party. We provide round or rectangular tables with white or burgundy linen, place settings and glassware. Decorations can also be provided by La Grange, or you are welcome to decorate the room yourself. DJ services are available.

 

Some of its features:1,000 square feet, cathedral ceiling; windows on three sides overlooking river, lawns, forest; wood-burning fireplace; concert-quality piano; projection screen; AV equipment available; lectern available; raised stage/podium available.

 

Marquee Tent

For some events, we can provide a lovely white marquis, installed on the lawns or by the riverbank just a few steps away from La Grange.

 

Outdoors

The lawn sweeps to a backdrop of the Gatineau River, forest and flowers. It can seat guests theatre-style, or it can be used during the reception with informal seating. Meals can be served on the lawn in fine weather. Barbecues and canapé weddings are popular events on the lawns. We guarantee that events can be moved inside in case of rain.

"Let me thank you again personally for making our wedding so wonderful! You and your staff went above and beyond not just that day, but in the months leading up to it. We have heard nothing but compliments from all our guests and family. Comments like "fine dining", "amazing property", "super friendly staff", which are well deserved. It was obvious how much care and pride you put into the venue and your service. Thank you again so very much from both of us. Working with La Grange has been truly a pleasure."

"We just wanted to send you a huge thank you, for running everything behind the scenes and making the night a huge success. The decor was masterfully organized, and the dining room, as well as the ceremony area outside were really beautifully set up. I think people enjoyed being able to get away from the music in the evening if they weren't the dancing type, and it was great to see people taking advantage of the other rooms in the cottage. It was really homey. The meal was delicious and in particular, the Pavlova was top notch. Thanks again, so much!"

"All the guests had great time and they were very impressed by the beauty of La Grange. They also spoke highly of the staff members. It was our first time organizing such a big party, we felt that we could not do it without your help. We hope that we will come back and share a great time with you again. Thank you all very much!"
