Sunshine Coast Weddings
We did an interview with Paul from West Coast Wildnerness Lodge to get some insight into what makes holding a Sunshine Coast wedding at the lodge in Egmont BC on the so special. Here is what Paul had to say:
What Types of Weddings do you host?
We offer wedding clients a full-service destination experience. The entire property is dedicated to the wedding group as we close the West Coast Wilderness Lodge to the public for these events. This means that our clients (bride & groom) and their guests have complete access to the main lodge & lounge, accommodation, decks, hot tub and property. An intimate VIP experience in a spectacular, natural setting. Sounds like a fairy tale wedding!
Do You have a Wedding Planner at WCWL?
Our staff understand how important and unique each wedding is. Our dedicated wedding planner will assist the bride and groom to craft their special day. Wedding packages are available and are often a great starting point for planning. We then go on to customize each experience according to the wishes of our guests.
Destination Weddings - WCWL
The majority of our wedding groups are looking for a true destination experience. Family and friends often travel long distances and our couples want to share a weekend with their loved ones. We can also plan a variety of activities to compliment the main event. Boat cruises, guided kayaking trips and nature walks, floatplane tours, brunches and barbeques are great additions and offer guests of all ages a chance to relax and enjoy their time here. The natural attractions we have to offer visitors, like the Skookumchuck Rapids, Hotham Sound with the Harmony Islands, and Princess Louisa Inlet with Chatterbox Falls, are simply world-class. There is no end to the activities that are available at our front door.
WCWL - The Perfect Wedding Ceremony
The main deck with breathtaking views is the perfect spot for a wedding ceremony. Dinner by candlelight follows in the main dining room and is prepared by our skilled culinary team with great attention to detail. Our food is simply excellent and our service is warm and welcoming. Following dinner guests move to the lower lounge and deck for the wedding reception.
Accommodations for Your Wedding Guests
Our accommodations are very well suited to wedding groups. Each of our 5 well appointed guest lodges have 4 rooms that feature king & queen beds, fluffy down quilts, decks and spacious bathrooms. Our suites also boast comfortable seating areas. Weddings will typically group family members into cabins which allows for additional socializing.
Weddings should be booked as far in advance as possible. Popular dates book early! Plan your Sunshine Coast Wedding at the WCWL
Size of the Wedding
We have hosted weddings of all sizes (from 4 to 130!) but typically our wedding groups are between 75 and 100 guests with a maximum of 125 for the wedding dinner. We can accommodate up to 50 in our guest lodges based on double and triple occupancy and additional rooms are available in the area for larger groups. Every couple has a different vision for their special day. Whether the wedding is black tie or comfortable and casual the Lodge offers a perfect backdrop.

Favorite Sunshine Coast Wedding Memories at WCWL
Some of our favourite Sunshine Coast wedding memories...
Arranging for a fireworks display that illuminating the hills and sound to the "Oooohs" and "Ahhhs" of the guests
An entire wedding party walking down to the dock to dip their hands into the amazing phosphorescence. At it's most active this natural occurrence is completely mesmerizing. When you dip your hands into the water you feels like you are scooping up streams of stars.
One wedding at the lodge that truly stands out was a couple you had previously stay with us and decide to return for their wedding day. The brides family was from Belgium and the grooms folks were from Iran, to witness not only the joining of two people but the join of two families and their cultures will rank as a most unique event. We have hosted weddings for guests from all over the world but this one was very memorable.
