As experienced caterers, we know what works when it comes to planning your event. That’s why we’ve partnered up with some of the most professionally run and beautiful venues around.
Every month we’ll be choosing one as our ‘Venue of the Month’; this time, it’s the jaw-dropping Canada Lodge and Lake Resort!
Nestled in a hillside and hidden by impossibly tall fir trees, Canada Lodge and Lake wouldn’t be out of place in a Christmas story, but its charm lasts all year round. Spreading across 5 acres of countryside in Creigiau, this venue is a dream location for everything from an afternoon’s fishing to a Summer wedding.
What type of venue is it?
With a backdrop that wouldn’t be out of place in the heart of Nova Scotia, Canada Lodge and Lake Resort is a classic venue that exudes Canadian charm with Welsh beauty. Around the main wood lodge you’ll find acres of woodland and countryside grounds.
Fancy a sleepover? You could stay overnight in any of their Log Cabins (with special Bridal Suites if that’s what you’re after!). With a large, light and airy wedding hall for ceremonies and the reception, and a scenic backdrop that’s better than any CGI, it’s the perfect venue for a wedding that isn’t all castles and princesses.

Classic Log Cabins aren’t the only accommodation on offer. We recently served up a delicious Sunday Lunch at Canada Lodge and Lake’s open day, where they showed off their brand new subterranean apartments.
These six spacious apartments, which are now available to book, sit on the bank. So, as well as looking beautiful, they boast picturesque views over the lake.
What makes it special?
Interestingly, it’s also a locally-loved spot for keen fishermen; you can hire use of the lake for a few hours of fly-fishing, or take it up a notch with corporate fishing with your work team.
If that’s not the kind of wedding activity you’re after, don’t panic – with inclusive wedding packages that take away all the organising stress and leave you with a day to remember, there’s no need to worry. As wedding caterers for the venue, there are over 10 custom-made menu options to choose from, cooked and served by us, from evening wedding buffets to the traditional wedding breakfast.

What type of event is it ideal for?
Canada Lodge and Lake Resort isn’t just for weddings; you can also book business retreats where your colleagues and coworkers can enjoy team building events, conferences, training courses or board meetings, all set to a backdrop of gorgeous Welsh countryside.
However, there’s no denying its irresistible magic as a wedding venue. It’s licensed for both Civil Ceremonies and Civil Partnerships, and can cover it all, from the transport to the icing on the cake. If you’d like to get a flavour of what your big day could be, Canada Lodge and Lake Resort is holding a Wedding Fayre on October 12th 2016, from 5pm – 8pm, where you can ask questions and see what this stunning venue has to offer.
If you’d prefer a wedding set somewhere more unusual, but in a venue that still provides stunning scenery and gorgeous decor, Canada Lodge and Lake Resort is a winner. It hasn’t got Niagara Falls (yet) but the Canadian charm is there in every wooden floorboard and log-filled fireplace.
