{favourite things} Grand Stone Fireplace, Rock Fountains, Open Air Chapel & More

Easily reached from bustling cities, yet nestled within the remote countryside, Whistle Bear Golf Club (whistlebear.ca) is the ultimate venue for a getaway wedding feel (without the pricey airfare). A spectacular natural setting – complete with rolling hills, babbling brooks and a commanding forest – offers the privacy and exclusivity owed to any couple on their special day.

Three Reception Rooms

The newly-renovated clubhouse is beautiful with hand-carved wooden beams, a vaulted ceiling and stone wood-burning fireplace. Uniqueness is stamped on each of its three reception rooms, which can accommodate the intimate, the extravagant and everything in between.

Open Air Garden Chapel

Perched atop a hill overlooking smooth greens and surrounded by manicured gardens, the open air Garden Chapel is nothing short of magical. Bold flagstone and exposed timber counterbalance elegant chandeliers and soft florals to create a ceremony space rich in character.

A retractable peaked roof provides complete protection from the weather, and floor to ceiling glass panels allow a clear view of the property’s landscape. Capture the day’s most intimate moments on camera set against such unique backdrops as a rustic sugar shack, a dramatic rock fountain and striking barn doors.

Spirited Staff Bring TLC to the WB

Special Events Consultant Nikki Northern was blown away the first time she toured the venue. “I myself am a newlywed, and I thought I had planned the perfect wedding day. Then I saw Whistle Bear for the first time…and my bubble was popped! I fell so in love with its charm, I just knew I had to work there.” She and her husband have since packed up their Toronto home so she can be closer to her dream job. For her, a noticeable advantage to the venue is its deeply dedicated staff. Planners who can be reached 7 days a week. Culinary experts who honour an Earth-to-Table food philosophy. A fleet of dependable Maitre d’s focused on ensuring flawless execution. The Whistle Bear team is devoted to bringing endless possibilities to fruition.

Tis the Season (Any Season!) to Say “I Do”

When asked what is trending lately at Whistle Bear, Consultant Raylene Laub cites “the rise of winter weddings, without a doubt. In fact, I very recently had a couple who intended on booking a summer date, but fell in love with the polar opposite idea! After seeing photos of a bridal party snowball fight, they turned to each other and agreed that exchanging vows in front of a roaring fireplace was undeniably romantic.” The venue does indeed have a remarkable ability to adapt to the changing seasons. It feels as natural to sip chilled sangria on a sun-soaked terrace as it does clutching a warm mug of cider while roasting fire pit marshmallows. Every time of year is special at Whistle Bear.
