The Trappist Monastery Ruins or St Norbert Monastery was built in 1903-1904 and has been a popular landmark for wedding photographs and engagements. The Monastery has a similar history as the St Boniface Cathedral as it tragically burnt up in flames in 1983. Here’s more history on this location.
The Trappist Monastery Ruins is fairly secluded as not too many people visit here all at once. Therefore it’s a perfect little spot if you have your ceremony or reception in the south end of Winnipeg. Otherwise, it would out of your way to come here.
The St Norbert Art Centre is right beside it along with the Southwood Golf Course. Both of these places are popular for ceremonies so that makes the ruins a perfect spot to take your wedding photos.
With all the great space and nice light the St Norbert Ruins also make a great space for bridal party portraits.
During the fall you can have beautiful yellow leaves on the tree to make your wedding photographs even prettier.
You’ll have to be careful of any events taking place at the Ruins such as Shakespeare in the Ruins. When this event is taking place the property will be unavailable for weddings and shoots. Therefore do your research in advance and contact them for availability.
