Wedding Rental

The Huble Homestead offers custom wedding planning to suit your needs! Plan to hold your special day against the backdrop of this wonderfully unique piece of heritage, hidden within the beautiful countryside on the banks of the majestic Fraser River. This picturesque historic site is ideal for wedding ceremonies, photos, and afternoon receptions. If you are planning to have a traditional evening reception, please keep in mind that Huble Homestead operates without electricity or running water.

Most of our wedding couples choose to hold their ceremony outside on the banks of the Fraser River, though other areas of our site are suitable for outdoor ceremonies. In case of rain, couples often choose to use the Welcome Barn as their back up space. Capacity in the barn is approximately 80 people.

We offer custom wedding planning that suits your needs; most aspects of the rental are negotiable. All wedding rentals begin with the Basic Rental:
