Escape the elements and let the warmth of the garden oasis whisk you away on a tropical getaway right here in southwestern Ontario.
Celebrate your love story with an intimate ceremony – walk down the aisle along the lush garden pathways, amongst the natural, picturesque setting created by the cascading waterfalls and tropical blooms.
“Everyone was so impressed with the venue. The ceremony was so special…to have all the greenery, water, butterflies, turtles… everything just made it like heaven for us,” said Emily and Jamie Jeffrey, whose wedding day was “everything they could have hoped for and more”.

After COVID-19 forced them to redesign their plans for a destination celebration, Liz and Rob contacted the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory and tied the knot in November 2020, “We can’t say enough, how grateful we were to them for all their help and just how truly amazing they were. Our guests raved about the ceremony, food, and the great lengths they went to make it a safe, enjoyable environment. Making our day truly one of the best days and memorable for all that attended.”
After saying “I do”, newlyweds will commemorate their commitments with a ceremonial butterfly release. These special moments are some of the most memorable, where brides and grooms, together with guests, can take a breath in unison and celebrate their vows. The Conservatory is the ideal location for a sentimental and symbolic Unity Ceremony like this.
This was Liz’s favourite memory, something she won’t soon forget, “The best memory of our wedding was at the end of our ceremony where we had a box of live butterflies that we released leaving our guests “oohing” and “ahhing”.”
