Can we book a wedding at any time of the year?
Our wedding season runs from approximately May until mid-October. Since we are an outdoor venue, we stick to the warmer and dryer months for hosting weddings.
What if it rains?
We do live on the West Coast and are located in the temperate rainforest. Although we get beautiful sunny weather through out the summer, rain is to be expected. To mitigate the risk of rain affecting your wedding plans, we do require that you rent a tent through our exclusive partner at Blacksheep Events Rentals.
How far in advance should I be booking my wedding?
We recommend booking your wedding venue at least a year before you plan on getting married, as our availability fills up quickly. Our wedding booking calendar opens each year in January for the following year.
Can I book the venue for one day?
Wedding bookings at Sunwolf require a two-night rental of the venue whether this is across a weekend or on a Tuesday/Wednesday. This allows you and your guests to arrive, set up for your big day and then relax and socialize together on the property.
How can I put a date on hold?
If you are interested in booking a wedding here at Sunwolf, we do require you to do a site visit. Once you are sure that our venue is right for you, we can hold your date after we have received a 50% retainer of the full venue rental and a signed contract with policies & guidelines.
What does a full venue rental include?
The full venue rental includes accommodation in our 10 riverside cabins, the Logger’s Shack and Fisherman’s Cottage, as well as full use of our property and our Lodge, including our lawn games and communal fire pit.
Do my guests pay for their cabins?
Guests often pay for their own cabins, though of course you’re welcome to cover that cost as well. Your guests would book directly through us once you have allocated them to the cabins. The cabin prices usually contribute to about 1/3 of your total full venue rental costs.
How many people can sleep in the cabins?
The cabins can accommodate a maximum of 54 people. Each of our riverside cabins and the Logger’s Shack can sleep up to 4 people each, and our Fisherman’s Cottage can sleep up to 8 people.
How many people can camp?
Our property can fit a maximum of 150 campers.
Can our guests stay in RV’s or camper?
We do not allow RV’s or campers on site, but our Wedding & Event Coordinator would be happy to give you recommendations for some of the full-service local campgrounds.
Can our guests bring pets?
Yes, we are pet friendly! Pets must be kept on leash on our property. Owners must pick up after their pets and are held responsible for their behaviour.
Can I bring in my own alcohol?
Fergie’s provides exclusive catering and beverage service from noon to midnight on the day of your wedding. Outside of these hours you and your legal age guests (19+ here in BC) are welcome to bring and drink your own alcohol.
Can I bring in outside catering?
Fergie’s is a full-service catering business and exclusively provides all catering services on site for your wedding day, from noon to midnight. No outside catering is permitted during that time.
You and your guests are welcome to self catered outside of the above mentioned time.
Would Fergie’s be able to cater other meals for us during our stay?
Yes, Fergie’s can cater your rehearsal dinner as well.
Can I host my wedding meal at Fergie’s?
The wedding meal is to be hosted under your reception tent. You and your guests are welcome to eat breakfast or lunch at Fergie’s during regular opening hours.
Do you provide tables and chairs?
The full venue rental includes the use of our picnic tables. We have 14 tables that can sit up to 84 guests, which can be used for your wedding meal or on any days covered by the full venue rental. We also provide 10 rustic ceremony benches that can sit up to 50 people. You may outsource tables and chairs that match the style of your wedding better from other vendors.
Do you provide wedding planning or day-of coordinating service?
We do not provide wedding planning services but we would be happy to recommend you some of our preferred vendors that do. Note that in order to have someone to liaise with during your wedding we do require that you provide a professional day-of coordinator.
