Weddings at the Clarion Hotel on Canterbury

No two love stories are the same, and we want to help create yours. When you choose to have your wedding at Canterbury, you’re choosing a day as unique and special as the love you’ve found in your partner.  

We’ve hosted countless weddings here at Canterbury International, so it’s easy for us to paint a picture for you… 

You’ll be able to freeze your most special moments in time with our photographer stress-free while your guests will be welcomed by our staff with canapes & beverages. 

An entrance fit for newlyweds. 

You walk hand-in-hand with your loved one through the naturally lit grand entrance at Canterbury International, and past the elegant chandelier. Walking slowly down the Grand Hall, you savour every detail of this magic day. 

Pausing for a moment at the entrance to the Grand Ballroom, you hear the Master of Ceremonies announce your arrival: “Please welcome our newly betrothed…” 

Your breath catches as you’re filled with an immense sense of joy, love, and anticipation for your new life ahead. 

The door swings open and you’re overwhelmed by the impeccably decorated Grand Ballroom, filled with a standing applause from your guests. 

Enjoy a three-course menu. 

You settle among your family and friends to enjoy a beautifully designed three course meal and a selection of beverages. 

The speeches are done—your best friends have embarrassed you, and your family has made you a little teary. 

It’s time for the first dance. 

The Master of Ceremonies announces that it’s time for your first dance as a married couple. Your friends and family form an intimate circle around the dance floor. You rise from your seats and the crowd parts as you walk arm in arm towards the dance floor. 

You stand in the centre of the room, gazing into the eyes of the person you’re going to wake up to for the rest of your life. The band begins to play your song, and you’re transported back to that magical first kiss as you effortlessly glide in unison across the dance floor. 

As your song ends, your family and friends begin to join in and together, you dance the night away. 

Your wedding night awaits… 

As the night begins to wind down, you thank your friends and family for sharing such a special day. Your next stop? It’s just upstairs! 

You walk into your luxury Canterbury Wedding Suite, where luxury chocolates and flowing sparkling wine await you in the exquisite and intimate room. 

The next morning kicks off your new life together, complete with a breakfast for two.
