We have photographed at the Hycroft manor so many times! Every time we are there, we find new ways to capture this amazing venue. It’s one of only a few venues that offer full-service weddings; inside and out it is perfect for ceremonies. The staff often sets up an undercover terrace outside in case you need shelter from rain or shine – which means your wedding will always be great no matter what kind of weather pops up on your big day!
Hycroft is a heritage mansion in Old Shaughnessy that has been in Vancouver since 1962. It features an incredible rental venue for receptions, meetings, conferences and other special events such as weddings or gala celebrations. This four-storey house may be rented by rooms, floors or areas with groups up to 250 people being accommodated depending on the needs for each event – Hycroft provides something perfect for every occasion!
The green room is a dream for indoor portraits, especially with all the greenery surrounding it. The inside of the gardens looks timeless and classic in photos – perfect for your wedding day! If you’re having an intimate reception then there are plenty of rooms to choose from but if you have a large group coming don’t forget about their huge basement space that can hold up to 250 people. It’s best to call them ahead so they know what kind of event you’ll be hosting before making plans!
The first floor of the mansion is designed for hosting guests and ceremonies. The elegantly appointed rooms off our lavish foyer are perfect for a wedding party to congregate before making their way upstairs towards your grand event space. If you would like, we can host an intimate reception out on the terrace where couples can enjoy stunning views while dining at one of two set tables positioned under elaborate chandeliers dangling from above or gaze upon breathtaking gardens as they say ‘I do.’
The Main Level boasts beautifully appointed rooms off the spacious foyer at the foot of our Grand Staircase leading up to our Upper Level that’s been specifically built with events in mind – including weddings! Invite your guests from down below into this spectacular room overlooking beautiful
One of our favourite features of Upper Level is the variety in meeting and event spaces. For small events, you will be able to choose from The Farris Room or its adjoining Solarium, Boardroom and Lett Room with their accompanying solaria as well! No matter what your needs are for a successful presentation or retreat space—you can find it here at Upper Level.
The drawing room is a perfect place to throw an intimate dinner for friends or family. The elegant furnishings and view from the French doors make this space very welcoming. With dimensions of 40′ x 21′, it has a capacity for 50 seated dinner guests with additional seating on the stairs leading up to Juliet Balcony.
The terrace is an oversized area that overlooks the lights of the city. On a warm summer evening, 130 people can seat for dinner here on this expansive covered space and enjoy it as they take in views from 35 x 25 feet wide including its own cover (130 ft).
