Hatley Castle 2

Here we see Hatley Castle from the Croquet Court, a sunken lawn area below the Italian Garden that is adjacent to the castle building. The bystanders so picturesquely posed were engaged in planning a wedding scheduled for the following day. As well as providing a backdrop for numerous Hollywood films, the castle, like other Victoria scenic locations such as Saxe Point Park, is often a venue for wedding ceremonies.

That would be lovely place to get married.

I was married there 25 years ago. As an ex-RRMC cadet, I worried that the gardens would be neglected once it was turned over to civilian care.
I was there a couple of months ago and was very impressed to see that the gardens were even nicer than when I attended the college back in the late-70s. I'm actually on display in the museum that's in the basement of the castle. Nothing makes you feel old than knowing that you are a genuine museum piece!
