Nestled into a picturesque vineyard acreage estate, Sanctuary Gardens offers a private setting overlooking Okanagan Lake in the scenic Gellatly Bay area of West Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. The chapel inspired gazebo with its surrounding meadow and timber framed Rose Room with adjoining garden courtyard can be rented for smaller outdoor wedding ceremonies (up to 60 guests) and intimate elopements, vow renewals, memorials and photo sessions. No receptions or outside food and drink.

We are not open to the general public and appointments are necessary to view this private residence.

Please no drop-ins.


Sanctuary Gardens is booked for the 2017 wedding season. Calendar is now open for 2018 reservations.

Thinking about December “I do’s”…? We are too with twinkle lights up in the new Rose Room ready to host holiday nuptials! Limited spaces will be available during the month of December for intimate wedding ceremonies of under 25 guests.

LOCATION: 3792 Carrall Rd., West Kelowna, B.C. Canada, V4T 2C6

HOURS OF OPERATION: by appointment or private booking only (please no drop-ins)

CEREMONY COST: Pricing starts at $1000 for smaller elopements. Larger ceremonies (up to 60 seated guests) range from $1600 to $2000 depending on guest count. 

For your convenience, white Chiavari chairs are provided in the wedding package with set up and take down included. A white vintage signing table is available for your use as well as any onsite decor items (see Add-Ons section of website). The Sanctuary has overhead lighting for evening ceremonies and electrical outlets for ceremony music. Washroom facilities are located nearby. 


Note that ceremonies take place under the gazebo but in the case of inclement weather, there is also the option to set up in The Rose Room. Timber framed and white washed like the gazebo structure, The Rose Room adds an extra insurance “Plan B” option for outdoor ceremonies which are always subject to the weather. On sunny days, it can be opened up on three sides for a summerhouse feel, with the benefit of additional shade area for the comfort of wedding party and guests.
