COVID-19 Policies for Wedding & Event Guests

We are committed to the Health & Safety of our guests.

We have made some temporary changes to how we conduct weddings and events in our facility to keep everyone safe and healthy. Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory is acting in accordance the Reopening Ontario (A Flexible Response to COVID-19) Act, 2020.

Ontario COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccination Policies:

  • All wedding reception guests must be fully vaccinated (two doses plus 14 days post second dose) and show their enhanced vaccine certificate with QR code, along with original government-issued ID. The enhanced vaccine certificate can be downloaded or printed from the provincial booking portal.
  • Guests that are attending only a wedding ceremony, but not an associated reception, are exempt from the requirement to provide proof of vaccination. 
  • Individuals who cannot receive the vaccine due to medical exemptions will be permitted entry with a doctor’s note until recognized medical exemptions can be integrated as part of a digital vaccine certificate.
  • Children who are 11 years of age and younger and unable to be vaccinated will also be exempted from these requirements.
  • Aligned with public health measures currently in place, indoor masking policies will continue to remain in place
      Health & Safety Commitments in Step 2 of Provincial Reopening Plan : 

      • Ceremonies only – no receptions permitted during Step 2 of provincial reopening plan
      • All guests will be actively screened before entering the facility and will be required to sign a Compliance Agreement & Attestation Form
      • During a wedding ceremony, only the person performing the ceremony and the couple getting married may remove their mask to walk down the aisle and exchange vows. Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory staff will wear face coverings at all times
        • During the photography session, subjects may temporarily remove their face mask while being photographed. Face masks must be worn by everyone outside of the frame during an active photography session.
      • Masks must be worn while entering or exiting the event space, and at all times when moving through the facility
      • Capacity will be determined on a case-by-case basis
      • Any guests showing cold or flu-like symptoms, that have been in contact with someone with COVID-19, or have been advised to isolate, are asked to stay home
