15 Best Outdoor Venues in Hamilton

Hamilton Wedding Photographer – Josie Nicole

Hamilton is a city that’s located in a prime spot for events like weddings! It’s close enough to big-city Toronto that there are still lots of trendy spots, but we’re also in between lake country and the whole wine region of Niagara!

That just means that there are so many incredible options for you to no matter what your vision!

My personal favourite weddings are outdoors! If you’re also down for an outdoor wedding then you’ll really want to check out these 15 outdoor venues in Hamilton (some in the surrounding area, but all close to the city!)

Some of these venues are right in the city and others are closer to Niagara but they’re all worth being on this list! Enjoy these 15 outdoor venues in Hamilton and the surrounding area!

6. Royal Botanical Garden

The Royal Botanical Garden is great because there are so many little pockets of the property that can host your wedding. This means a ton of variety in the backdrop for you to choose from. Some spaces are more intimate, some are tented, indoors, outdoors and others offer a great lush environment. We love options!
