Nestled in the true, geographic heart of the Comox Valley, this boutique hotel blends modern comfort with rustic West Coast design. Featuring 79 rooms, guests can enjoy convenient amenities, indulgent services at Oh Spa and exquisite dining all while only steps away from everything downtown Courtenay offers.

With riverfront gardens and breathtaking space, it’s no wonder that Old House Village Hotel & Spa is a favourite destination for weddings. It only seems logical for the hotel to host a unique Wedding Fair on its charming grounds. Now entering its third year, the Wedding Fair gathers incredible photographers, caterers, bakers, florists and venues in one unique setting. On Saturday, March 3rd, brides and grooms-to-be are invited to visit the Old House Village Hotel & Spa to make their Island wedding dreams come true.

To celebrate its third Wedding Fair, Old House Village Hotel & Spa wants to make one lovely couple’s engagement an event to remember. One lucky reader will win the chance to treat their fiancé (or fiancée) to a getaway at the Old House Village Hotel & Spa that exudes classic romance.

That said, the getaway is only part of it. Ashley and Mike Kitchen are Vancouver Island-based photographers (and a very-much-in-love husband-and-wife team) who have an eye for combining the romantic with the clever. We have teamed up with Ashley and Mike through their company, SNAP Weddings, to provide exclusive engagement photos of the couple.

  18. I’d love to win this for my sister!
    She deserves a romantic getaway – beautiful bride, loving mother and amazing sister!

    Plus, I love SNAP!:)

  19. My fiancé and I have been engaged for just over 2 months now. We are from Ontario and are planning to visit BC this summer. My fiancé actually grew up in Comox and he hasn’t been back since he moved away. He talks about it all the time and tells me how beautiful it is. He often uses google earth to show me the beautiful areas in Comox. It’s the closest that we have been to the Valley. Having said this, I would love to surprise my fiancé with this prize!

  20. This would be an amazing surprise for my fiance! We got engaged in September, so it would be a dream to win this romantic prize!

  21. My fiance and I would use this prize for ourselves as we got engaged in Tofino on Labour Day Weekend. We just moved to the Comox Valley last year and have not been to the Old House yet. Would love to experience this as we do not have a wedding venue yet. So you never know we could fall in love and want this place.

  22. I’d send my friend and her new fiance! This would be a great engagement and birthday gift for her. The wedding planning process has been pretty stressful so they could definitely use the pampering. :)

  23. I need a gateway, I have daycare kids with me all day, and would love to be with my sweetie of 31 years. But whoever wins, will have fun. Thanks for always have these fun contest keira, you are a true sweetie.

  25. My fiance and I dated when we were 10 years old and grew apart but then 12 years later we started chatted and realised we still cared for each other. We got engaged in Mexico this past November and we are getting married in July! We just got another surprising announcement…. We are having a baby!!! So this would be the best opprotunity to have some us time before the baby arrives!

  26. I would love to win this for my best friend and her fiance. They are getting married in July and just found out she is pregnant, so she has been pretty stressed out lately and I really think they deserve a get away!

  27. I would be so excited if I could experience the beauty there.I am from Windsor Ontario and have lived here all my life.I had two best friends growing up and one passed away at a very young age the other moved back there after over twenty years of living here so life has really changed for me.My best friend the one that passed away I have been with her boyfriend for 10 years now.I have not seen my other best friend for many years now and would love to go and experience the beauty with her and my boyfriend.

  28. I would be incredibly grateful to share this prize with my fiance!! 😀

  29. My daughter has a lovely friend who I have known since she was 3. Her and her fiance are currently starving students planning a wedding with very little money. I’m taking cake decorating courses so I can make them a fancy wedding cake as a gift but this gift would be spectacular because I have no doubt they won’t be able to afford a honeymoon. She did get a very romantic proposal though. He took her and his parents out for dinner to the Crow and Gate Pub in Nanaimo and then told her it was time to go. He took her around the corner of the pub where a small band was waiting to back him up. Then he sang her the song ‘My Girl’. When he was done, he told her and everyone in the pub how special she was to him and asked her to marry him. I would love to give them the opportunity to continue this romance on to their wedding night in such a gorgeous location.

  30. Would love to win this for me and my sweetie.

  31. I would treat my man, the most wonderful fiancé in the world! After 3 years of long distance we have bought a house in the Comox Valley and are getting married this summer!

  32. I would love to present this to my parents since they haven’t had a getaway since I can remember, never had a honeymoon and got married on April 1st, 1970…it would be a wonderful way for them to celebrate all these years together…in style!

  33. My fiancée and I have been engaged for almost three months and I would LOVE to surprise her with this trip! We met thru mutual friends and have been together for three and a half years. I love her more than I ever thought possible and this would be such a great trip for us to go on together!

  34. For my daughter and her lovely fiance! They truly deserve this wonderful getaway.

  35. Not sure if my first one went through, it says awaiting moderation so just in case here it is again.. I would be incredibly grateful to share this prize with my fiance!! 😀
