This year’s wedding season looks a little different. If you are planning to have a summer 2021 wedding, you may have run into planning difficulties. Due to the pandemic requiring venues to close their doors and guests hesitating to participate in large gatherings, many people have had to find alternative arrangements for their special day. However, that doesn’t mean the big day needs to be any less exciting.
While the prospect of a large, traditional wedding my still seem far off, many couples are planning to keep things small, with some choosing an intimate and adventurous elopement in Ontario. Whether you are looking for an exciting adventure or to simply relax and enjoy your time with your partner in an intimate setting, the Sudbury area will not disappoint. Surrounded by stunning scenery and natural beauty, Sudbury is the perfect place to have your unforgettable adventure wedding.
If you are adventurous, take your wedding over to one of Sudbury’s nearby provincial parks. Hike to a scenic overlook to exchange your vows, head to a sunny beach, or into the forest for some mystery. If you are feeling exceptionally adventurous, plan a multi-day hike to a secluded spot—you and your to-be spouse will be the only people in sight (along with your officiant and photographer, of course!) Snag photos that will last a lifetime on the La Cloche mountain range at Killarney Provincial Park, where you will find white quartz cliffsides and scenic overlooks. Grab your hiking boots and your favourite photographer for a day you will always remember—and don’t forget your wedding dress!
If you are looking for something more laid-back, but would still love to incorporate Northern Ontario’s beautiful scenery, take your wedding to the water with a celebration on a boat. With so many lakes surrounding Sudbury, there will be many options for your wedding-on-the-water. For a more active day, rent a canoe or kayak and head to a nearby park for scenic wildlife. For a peaceful setting, rent a boat and head onto the water at Ramsey Lake to take in a sunset and city views while you say I do… afterwards, head back into Sudbury to enjoy a romantic patio dinner to top off the evening.
If what you are missing most about a big wedding celebration is the food, then a picnic might be for you! Pack your lunch—or have it catered by a local business—and head to the park. Say “I Do” and cap it off with an intimate outdoor celebration for two in one of Sudbury’s parks, or take it farther afield and enjoy one of the Provincial Park’s picnic areas! We recommend Lake Laurentian Conservation Area for a secluded and scenic spot near the city.
