The Courtyard is an icon of the Byward Market, and is a favourite space for a wedding. Surrounded by cobblestone courtyards (go figure), it’s the perfect venue to reflect the old Ottawa vibe. Most weddings take place on the second floor, which gives you and your guests plenty of space for both a ceremony and a reception, and room to mingle in between.
Shooting there can be tricky since it’s so dark, but that just lends itself to the intimate feeling of the place. Between the exposed stone and hardwood, it’s a venue like no other.

Melissa and Pete had the whole shebang at the Courtyard Restaurant. Never had this happen before…a bumblebee landed on the bouquet! …Mike
