Nestled in the heart of Ottawa’s downtown market, the Courtyard Restaurant is great place to go for delicious food and a welcoming atmosphere. I photographed a wedding here last fall and it was a memorable joy to see the friends and family of the bride and groom walk through the beautiful stone covered Courtyard. This setting made for unique photographs. Once inside, we were warmly greeted by some of the staff.

Through-out the day, they were very attentive and it was evident that they genuinely cared about creating a positive experience for their guests.  The food was some of the best food I have had at a wedding, and being a wedding photographer, I have had my share of wedding cuisine.  I really enjoyed the “choice” menu, where I was able to choose what I felt like at that moment.  The tables were set with fine English china, white table linens, fresh flowers and candlelight. Be sure to come visit this lovely restaurant and if you are getting married here, be sure to take advantage of the services of their Wedding Coordinator!
