We eloped at Sooke Harbour House and I would highly recommend the secret hearts package! My husband tentatively made a reservation before he proposed and we only had 10 days to organize the wedding. The innkeeper Frederique Philip was very accommodating with such a short booking and had local contacts for us to book hair, make-up, photographer and marriage commissioner. We are thankful for their understanding and being well prepared for a short elopement booking to help us through the process!
The secret hearts package was an ideal way to spoil ourselves prior to the wedding ceremony with in room breakfast and massages and finished the day with dinner in their famous restaurant. The food was magnificent and we loved that a lot of the produce is grown on the grounds. I would highly recommend paying that little bit extra for wine pairing with each course!!
Our room was in the original part of the house (Blue Heron Room 2) with it's own balcony overlooking the gardens and bay where we could see seals and otters frolicking in the water with eagles flying over head. It is located above the restaurant but it was very quiet. It has a spa beside an open fireplace, very romantic. The location, facilities and staff made our stay memorable and we will definitely return to soak up some more of the relaxed atmosphere!
