Wedding Possibilities

What better place to be married than in The Garden that Love Built! The Abkhazi Garden is an exquisite heritage home and garden located in Victoria, British Columbia, a city known for its wonderful gardens. The Prince and Princess Abkhazi began creating their garden in 1946, the year they married and settled in Victoria, after living separate lives touched by privilege and tragedy. They immediately began to develop their one-acre property, and continued to maintain and improve the garden throughout their lives together.


We can accommodate every wish and family tradition for your ceremony, offering spectacular venues to make your wedding fairy tale perfect.


Have your ceremony at the Summer House in The Garden and toast the happy couple on the terrace with champagne and strawberries.  A string quartet creates a quiet ambience while your guests mingle as your photographer preserves special moments.


The Teahouse is a beautiful room, accommodating up to 32 guests, clad in Baltic White Birch glows warmly in the evening as your guests seat themselves at white linen tables to await a stunning meal.  In winter, a toasty fire burns cozily in the fireplace.  The intimate setting allows for more personalization and our servers are attentive and sincere.

Whether your theme is a casual standup reception or a formal sit down meal, we have the menu that will suit your needs.  Choose from our Champagne Afternoon Tea or our Three or Four Course Plated Dinners.   We are happy to customize dishes to suit your tastes and dietary requirements.  We strive to be an allergy-aware facility and we are peanut-free.
