Westin Nova Scotian Weddings

What an amazing setting for a wedding. Not only is it centrally located near Point Pleasant Park and the waterfront - two of our favourite places to shoot, it’s gorgeous inside!

Jeff and his team make everyone, including us, feel like family every time we are at the Westin Nova Scotian.

Located in the southend of Halifax and adjacent to the VIA Rail station, The Westin Nova Scotian offers ceremony, reception and accommodation space for small and large weddings alike. Built in 1930, the hotel has grown and evolved over the years and remains a central landmark in the city. The hotel has had a notable guest list including the Queen and Lady Diana.

Why we love Westin Weddings


It's near the Halifax Waterfront, Point Pleasant Park, Pier 21, The Farmers Market and the Via Rail Station - great for your wedding guests and for wedding pictures

The Hotel is gorgeous!

With two recently renovated ballrooms and beautiful, ornate spaces everywhere you turn - if it happens to rain, there are lots of amazing spaces within the hotel for photos.
