In addition, what makes one wonder is the use of interesting visual backdrops throughout the movie. So, if you wish to find out where ‘Marry Go Round’ was lensed, let us fill you in on all the details!
Marry Go Round Filming Locations
‘Marry Go Round’ was filmed entirely in British Columbia, specifically in Metro Vancouver. The principal photography for the Hallmark movie commenced in late June 2022 and wrapped up within a few weeks or so in July of the same year. British Columbia is Canada’s westernmost province, located between the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains. It is known for its vast and diverse geography, making it an ideal choice for many filmmakers. Now, without further ado, let’s look at all the specific locations that appear in the movie!
Metro Vancouver, British Columbia
All the pivotal portions of ‘Marry Go Round’ were lensed across Metro Vancouver, a metropolitan area comprising Vancouver and its surrounding cities. The cast and crew of the Hallmark movie seemingly traveled across Vancouver to tape different scenes against suitable backdrops. In a September 2022 interview with TV Fanatic, Amanda Schull (Abby) was asked if the theme park and carousel scenes were shot at an actual theme park or not.
Amanda revealed, “It was a real theme park, but the carousel wasn’t in the theme park.” She added, “The carousel is basically in a museum; it’s this historic little town that they’ve preserved, and it’s in there. And it was maybe from the 1910s or 1920s or something. Each horse on that carousel is, I don’t know how many thousands of dollars. They were exquisite.” Thus, it is likely that the filming unit recorded the carousel scenes at the C.W. Parker Carousel in the Burnaby Village Museum. Located at 6501 Deer Lake Avenue in Burnaby, the carousel was built in 1912 and attracts several visitors annually.
Located in the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia, Vancouver is popularly known as Hollywood North for a reason. Over the years, the city has served as a prominent production location for all kinds of movies and TV shows, including ‘The Age of Adaline,’ ‘The Predator,’ ‘Keep Breathing,’ and ‘Midnight Mass.’

Amanda Schull portrays Abby Foster in the romantic movie.
