Wedding Permits

A bride stands in front of a forested area holding a bouquet of tulips.

All weddings taking place in the District of West Vancouver parks must have a valid permit.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are limiting the size, type and location of weddings until further notice. We are taking applications to hold a spot for weddings. Approvals are subject to the state of the pandemic, availability of the location and your plans to conduct the wedding under current provincial guidelines. Applications will be reviewed and processed in the order they are received.

Interested parties should fill out a form and send it in by email:
