Where your happily ever after begins

Any bride and groom will tell you the list of “to-dos” before they say “I do” is endless. Forest Lakes is here to help, as we have the perfect venue to check off your list. Since launching weddings at Forest Lakes many brides have expressed their excitement and we’re going to tell you why.

Location, location, location

Nestled in nature and exuding in luxury, we have a stunning setting that is both beautiful and peaceful, creating a romantic oasis and a relaxed atmosphere. Located just 30 minutes from both downtown Halifax and the Annapolis Valley, guests can easily commute to and from the venue no matter where they are coming from.


Unique facilities

We know size matters, which is why it’s important to find a venue that matches your guest list. Forest Lakes has two beautiful facilities: the Welcome Lodge and the Boathouse.  

The Welcome Lodge can hold up to 75 guests standing and 50 seated. We also have a beautiful lawn surrounding the Welcome Lodge, providing ample space to set up a tent to accommodate a larger guest list of 300+ people.

If you’re dreaming of an intimate setting, the Boathouse area is the perfect oasis. With space for 75 guests, this space allows you to celebrate your wedding while capturing the essence of the outdoors.


Setting up your special day

The Welcome Lodge provides a variety of lighting, ample outlets, and good acoustics, creating an ideal atmosphere. We also give you freedom and flexibility to express your style, leaving you with plenty of time to set up your décor.

Stunning backdrops

We have a variety of backdrops for pictures, making excellent use of the Welcome Lodge, the Boathouse, Forest Lakes Golf Club, and our Multi-Purpose Trail Network. Each of these settings will provide you with beautiful memories of becoming newlyweds, allowing you to relive your wedding day over and over.

“The community of Forest Lakes is the perfect backdrop for any photoshoot. Each time I visit for a new project, I’m inspired by the natural beauty, which makes my job easy!” – Stephanie Lane, Photographer.
