Coutts Centre Weddings

I’ve been photographing at the Coutts Centre for Western Canadian Heritage for over a decade…when it was just a quiet little farm owned by the late Jim Coutts. I’ve watched the property evolve to the stunning wedding venue it is today, and am always in awe of the beauty of this rural piece of heaven. I know all the best nooks and crannies for incredible photos.

Elope under the cave of trees, as the Southern Alberta breeze wafts around you as you say your vows. With perfectly manicured lawns and a smorgasbord of floral colours, you will be blown away by the beauty of the Coutts Centre for your Shotgun Wedding.

Loree Photography will be your photographer for your elopement. With over a decade in the wedding industry and hundreds of weddings photographed, you can trust that we will do beautiful work photographing your wedding.

Your Simple Package includes your Alberta Marriage Commissioner (or we can help you organize the Temporary Marriage Commissioner License and a friend can legally marry you), Loree Photography as your photographer and use of the stunning Coutts Centre property for your one-hour celebration. You are welcome to add on photography time, bouquets, and video as well. We are also happy to recommend our favourite hair and make-up artists if you would like to use a professional.

You are welcome to include up to 20 guests in your elopement. With our outdoor space, there is lots of room for social distancing. There is also an indoor option in case of inclement weather.

All packages come with your marriage commissioner, who will legally marry you. We make it easy, with all of this planned for you. You can also choose to have a friend or family member apply for an Alberta Temporary Marriage Commissioner License. We can help guide you through this process. The temporary license is free.
