The Fine Print

We will work with you to make your day everything you want it to be...and more!

We provide a few guidelines to help you understand how we stand out in making that happen, and 'fine print' to guide your decisions.

The Food and Wine Philosophy

We are blessed to have a wonderful Chef that wedding planners rave about. And a kitchen brigade that is a consistent and constant long-term team. Here, in the Gulf Islands, we are surrounded with an abundance of fresh grown produce, free range livestock and artisan cheeses, and routinely impress even the most discerning palate. Our menus change frequently to best reflect our four-season climate. In addition, we take into consideration allergies and dietary restrictions of your guests.

Our Restaurant Manager will help you choose the perfect wines to complement your dinner, your palate and your budget. We have a extensive selection of both local and international wines to choose from. We are happy to assist you in choosing the appropriate wine selections for your menu.
  We will help you choose the perfect wines to make your event special


Exchange your vows in the open ocean air on one of our oceanfront lawns, in a romantic corner of our garden or on our own sandy beach. 

We can help you start off your life together in a magical way...from the warm and professional marriage commissioner to a champagne toast with canapés following the ceremony if desired.




We are excited to help you plan your perfect day: you can choose to have outdoor dining, with an indoor reception to follow. Our Chef and Restaurant Manager prefer to help you with choices of a plated menu, to ensure you have that "special" event you are wanting.

You can celebrate with family and friends in an elegant yet rustic island setting of wood floors, stone fireplaces, and expansive windows to enjoy the view. For your enjoyment, we  feature a surround sound system, dance floor , projector and screen for slide shows, all within fabulous West Coast décor.

Wedding Reception Capacity

Our beautiful venue can host your special wedding dinner or luncheon for up to 100 guests inside or 120 outside.


Because we know how personal it is, we welcome you to bring your own cake from your favourite bakery.


Our weddings all have amazing personal touches.  We will help guide you to ensure all signage and decorations are perfect for your event and our venues... and most people find that the amazing ambiance carries most of the decor!

Event Guarantees

The Galiano Inn will require a guaranteed number of guests, and their menu choices,  two weeks prior to the event, to ensure everything is perfectly planned for your big day.


The wedding deposit will be required at the time of contract signing to reserve your wedding date. 50% of the deposit is non-refundable unless we are able to book another wedding for that date.

We will block and hold rooms for your guests. A down payment of the first night for all rooms booked by your guests will be due upon room reservation.   When booking out the Inn for a Destination Wedding, all available rooms must be committed to by the bridal party, whether or not any individual guests cancel, to ensure the whole resort remains the fabulous wedding-focused event.

BC Marriage Regulations

A Marriage License must be obtained by the bride and groom before the wedding. Warm and wonderful local Marriage Commissioners are available to perform your ceremony. St. Margaret's of Scotland Church in the Anglican tradition is available a few minutes away.


The Galiano Oceanfront Inn & Spa can help you find wonderful options on Galiano  for florists that we are pleased to recommend. 

Music and Musicians

There are several options for musicians to enhance the ceremony and reception of your special day.
We are happy to help you find what you are looking for.


We have had the most amazing photographers at the Inn, capturing the special moments of the big day. We will be pleased to connect you with photographers that have amazing portfolios.

Treat Yourself!

Our Madrona Del Mar Spa offers a variety of services to ensure that you feel beautiful and relaxed on your special day.
