Badge of Awesome Communities invites you to share your favourite things to see and do in cool destinations around the world. We caught up with the folks from London Heritage Farm — one of our featured attractions from British Columbia — to learn about what they have to offer.
What makes London Heritage Farm awesome?
London Heritage Farm: Often praised as a hidden gem in the City of Richmond, London Heritage Farm is a 4.06-acre historical site that overlooks the scenic south arm of the Fraser River. The lovely Heritage Gardens, the Gazebo on the South Lawn and the historical London Farmhouse and Spraggs Barn at the backdrop all made London Heritage Farm a perfect outdoor venue for an intimate wedding.
Our large Gazebo is an excellent location for exchanging vows. The bride and her attendants can use the Parlour in the Farmhouse for photos and relax before the wedding begins. With chairs set up on the South Lawn facing the Gazebo, up to 200 guests can attend and witness the proceedings in the ceremony.
Our spacious South Lawn is a lovely spot for hosting a wedding reception. Long tables and chairs, coffee and tea stations and bars can be set up under open air or tents. A picnic on wooden benches in the South Lawn is a great alternative to a formal reception in the summer time. Guests can enjoy the free atmosphere, natural environment, heritage gardens and viewing of all the artifacts displayed around this historical site.
The cozy Farmhouse Tea Room is often used for bridal shower and small parties after the rehearsal. The historic London Farmhouse, the artifacts displayed inside, the Spraggs Barn, the antique farming equipment and tools, the Heritage Gardens and many more are all great spots for wedding photos. The beautiful dawn and sunset scenes at the river bank just in front of London Heritage Farm offer impressive panoramic settings for individual, couple or group photo sessions.
