Weddings and Special Occasions

Imagine your special event in an art gallery located on the water’s edge in beautiful St. Andrews—at Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre, a unique seaside venue for distinctive events and happenings

Sunbury Shores is perfect for intimate gatherings of 50 people or less. Most Saturday evenings are available, and the gallery setting is especially festive during the summer and fall. 

Rental fees include:

  • use of both galleries on the main floor

  • access to the deck and back garden overlooking the harbour

  • a cash bar (wine, beer, etc., at reasonable rates) operated by Sunbury Shores staff

  • a central Sonos sound system that can be programmed to play your choice of music

  • change rooms are also available upstairs for the bride’s party

  • accessible entrance, exit and washrooms on the ground floor

  • Tables (various sizes), table cloths and chairs are available

While Sunbury Shores does not provide food service, catering on site can take place. Our staff can help you find the best caterer to suit your event.

Client-supplied flowers and limited decorations for ceremonies and photo opportunities are permitted by the large window in the back gallery.

Your special experience will be enriched, not only by the scenic seaside location, but also by fine art surrounding you in the galleries. Because these artworks are valuable, special care must be taken by event hosts and their guests not to touch or damage the art works on display. An optional and refundable damage deposit may be required.
