Cranberry Creek Gardens

One of Norfolk County's best kept secrets...

For the past 15 years Cranberry Creek Gardens has been hosting romantically inspiring and picturesque weddings deep within the county’s interior. Surrounded by beautiful and meticulously groomed grounds and gardens, the historic 19th century church, built in 1881, serves as a picture-perfect back-drop for that out-of-door dream wedding. Of course, the spacious and very charming 150-seat church is also available for the indoor crowd and in case of inclement weather.

Cranberry Creek Gardens is available for weddings, garden parties and special events throughout the fair-weather season, 7 days a week. As a trained, educated and practised horticulturist, Jody Bodnar has created an outdoor paradise that is breath-taking at every turn given the variety of plant material, presentation and personal touches.


Wedding Ceremonies

Inside: the church is both heated and air-conditioned. Original wooden pews, wonderful ambiance, seating for 150 people with two aisle ways.

Outside: seating for upwards of 200 people. White folding chairs available for rent.

Note: Rustic railway baggage wagons available as ‘table tops’ for refreshments.

Garden Parties

For those that would like to stay on for a ‘garden party’ reception, there is room for a tent large enough to seat and cater for approximately 150 people. Duration and noise restrictions apply.


A photographer’s paradise. The spacious and gorgeous grounds provide for the most amazing photographic venues for weddings, engagements, and family pictures, etc. You’ll never look so good!


From time-to-time, Cranberry Creek Gardens hosts the most wonderful musical concerts inside the historic church with its stunning acoustic qualities. Check upcoming events for details.

Bus tours/Garden Tours

Group tours are welcome. Garden enthusiasts will find the scope of Cranberry Creek Gardens to be educational, inspiring, and calming. Picnic lunches are available upon request.

Meeting Room & Studio

The old ‘bank’, as we refer to it, is a lovely cottage-style building built about 1915 - originally for the Federal Bank of Canada. It often serves as a ‘get ready’ area for the bride and bridesmaids. Otherwise, it serves as quaint meeting room for those looking for something unique and charming. But don’t get too comfortable … you may not want to leave!

Plants for Sale

Cranberry Creek Gardens offers an eclectic selection of plant material -both woody and herbaceous perennials, along with the practical experience for their care and culture.

Overnight Accommodations

Presently, a bedroom with kitchenette and bath is under construction for those out-of-town guests. This renovation is taking advantage of the once-Sunday school room attached to the rear of the church.
