"I cannot recommend this venue enough. The management and staff were an absolute joy to work with. In the end, we got so much more stuff than what we thought was included!!! How often does that happen? We had our wedding ceremony outside on the water under a marquee tent, then the reception inside. There are some awesome sundecks too! Excellent price, excellent location... I could go on, but you get the idea."

"My wife and I had our wedding reception here and it was brilliant! The food was excellent, and the staff did an outstanding job of ensuring that our guests’ needs were met. And, the stunning setting overlooking the water, along with the most spectacular sunset, added that extra special something to our celebration. If you’re looking for a place for your reception, we’d recommend BYC in a heartbeat.''

"I had my wedding ceremony and reception at the Britannia Yacht Club on August 30th, 2014. This venue is superb. Our ceremony was outdoors facing the Ottawa River (and sailboats) and the indoor venue is large with a wonderful balcony overlooking the river. The food was great, as were the beverages. Breanna (the Events Manager) is simply outstanding. She is very responsive and flexible. She also took care of everything the day of, including coordinating vendors, set up, and take down. I can't praise her enough.
