The Canadian War Museum is a museum-type venue with eclectic, city, and modern style and can be used to host ceremonies and cocktail weddings. The Canadian War Museum has a mix of green terrestrial and aquatic landscapes founded in 1880.

Decorations The decoration at The Canadian War Museum represents royalty and is aesthetically pleasing. It has a modern decorative style and has specially made centrepieces and cake tables too. The chair is wrapped with black chiffon materials, and the tables are wrapped with golden-coloured material. The blue lighting and the transparent glass window bring a bit of the outdoor space to the indoor to make it picturesque.
In-House Catering One of the things that will make your wedding stand out is the distinct meals you will get from the amazing Sodexo culinary team. They serve you based on your custom needs, and you can always choose what is best for you and your guests. There are different catering services they offer, which include but are not limited to: buffet, dessert, and French service.

Is there any other perfect wedding location aside from the Canadian Museum? That is a rhetorical question. All you need to do to be sure is to make a booking today and be part of those that will celebrate their wedding in this historic location.
