Planning your dream wedding but desire a unique location? Convocation Hall is the perfect setting to celebrate your vows with friends and family. Offering seating for more than 426 people, Convocation Hall offers classic charm with just the right touch of theatrical flair. A favorite of wedding photographers in Edmonton, the Foyer of the Old Arts Building lends a romantic appeal to any wedding photo.
We offer a Wedding Ceremony Package for a service inside the hall, including a rehearsal for up to two hours, a service booking for up to three hours to allow you time for decorating and cleaning up, and the foyer reserved for your photos for a fixed flat rate plus staffing charges by the hour.
