Gazebo with string lights at the Norland Historic Estate - An outdoor wedding venue in Alberta

At the Norland Historic Estate, we believe in making your dreams come true. Picture saying ‘I do’ in our outdoor gazebo, nestled amidst our lush gardens, or dancing the night away in our exquisite indoor ballroom. With our versatile venue options, you’re not just getting an outdoor wedding venue in Alberta; you’re getting an experience of a lifetime. Here are some easy and beautiful ways to transform our spaces and create an enchanting setting for your special day.

Utilize Natural Beauty

Being an outdoor wedding venue, the Norland Historic Estate boasts scenic landscapes and stunning gardens. Embrace this natural beauty and keep your decorations minimalistic. Our outdoor gazebo, adorned with simple fairy lights or colourful ribbon, provides a whimsical touch that complements the beauty of our gardens. 

Floral Accents

Flowers are a fundamental part of any wedding décor. For an outdoor wedding, consider flowers that complement the natural flora of the Estate. Floral arches at the entrance of the gazebo, or table centrepieces with local blossoms, can tie the whole theme together.

Comfort is Key

Ensure your guests’ comfort with thoughtful additions such as outdoor heaters or cozy blankets for evening celebrations. Providing parasols in your wedding colours for a sunny afternoon outdoor weddings can also add a dash of charm.

Light Up the Night

As the sun sets, lighting becomes an essential part of your decoration. Fairy lights, lanterns, or candles (including flameless candles) can create a warm and inviting atmosphere. 

Indoor and Outdoor Harmony

While our indoor ballroom and outdoor gazebo each hold their charm, creating a harmonious theme across both areas can elevate your wedding aesthetic. Use a similar colour palette, matching floral arrangements, and complimentary decor elements to bring a sense of continuity. We are happy to partner with Lethbridge Event Rentals to assist you with planning your decor. They are renowned in southern Alberta for their stunning range of affordable event rental products, from luxurious linens to captivating centerpieces. 

Personalized Touches

Personalize your outdoor space with elements that represent your love story. Photo displays of memorable moments in your relationship, customized signage featuring a favourite quote or song lyric, or a unique guest book can make your wedding truly one-of-a-kind.

Interactive Stations

Consider interactive stations like a photo booth or a DIY drink bar. These not only serve as fun activities but also add an aesthetic element to your decor. Our in-house caterers LA Chefs can help you design delicious food stations to suit any wedding decor.  

The Perfect Outdoor Wedding Venue

Planning your wedding at the Norland Historic Estate ensures you’re choosing an outdoor wedding venue that’s not just picturesque but also rich with history and charm. We’re not merely a wedding venue in Alberta; we’re a place where your wedding dreams come to life amidst the elegance of our historic mansion and the natural beauty of our grounds.
