Last summer I had the opportunity to shoot Deric and Sarah’s wedding at the Marshes Golf and Country Club. I must say this was one of my favourite wedding venues of the season. Great locations for photos, lots of nice gardens, a really cool tunnel, nice stone work, and some train tracks. One of the biggest challenges as a photographer is working with tough locations but at The Marshes its easy to find great places to shoot.
Here is a post that our co-op student Alex Sarna wrote about The Marshes:
The Marshes golf course is one of the nation’s nicest golf courses available. It is Ottawa’s leading facility and brings a very fine event experience for people planning a special event. This course was designed by golfers to be used by other golfers. Because of the unique design of the course, it allows the golfer to move around quickly and enjoy the game. The Marshes pays serious attention to quality and detail. The golf course welcomes golfers of all abilities.
The Garden Terrace Rooms can accommodate 150 people. They are composed of 3 rooms. Each room can hold about 50 people. The rooms are ideal for events, meetings and seminars. Each room has a nice view of the clubhouse gardens. The atmosphere is rich and very relaxing. The decor has stunning finishes that have beautifully selected natural colours.
The Marshes clubhouse hosts all kinds of events such as weddings, meetings and tournaments. They have a nice ceremony room and cozy lounge that has the perfect atmosphere for guests and players to relax after a long event or game. The Marshes also offer food services at the Ironstone Grill for a terrific dining experience. The elegant stonework and lighting relaxes people as soon as they enter.
At the Marshes, golf is not just a game. It is also considered a business opportunity or a social gathering. They offer different kinds of packages to suit everyone’s budget. Some packages combine an overnight stay at the Brookstreet Hotel.
