Lord Nelson Hotel

While still a hotel, the Lord Nelson is one of Halifax's nicest wedding venues. Between the team of experts, the proximity to the Halifax Public Gardens (for the best pictures ever) and vast space, it's worth your consideration!

While having a beautiful interior that lends itself perfectly to a more formal wedding, the Lord Nelson Hotel comes equipped with an event team that will alleviate stress and help you plan the day of your dreams.

Museum of Immigration at Pier 21

A museum-wedding is a one of a kind experience, especially if it's at Pier 21, a place that is so stepped in history. This waterfront space offers views of the ocean, space for up to 400 guests and has on-site catering options.
