Top Toronto Wedding Venues

I've said it before, I will say it again, Toronto boasts some of the most unique, versatile, and character filled venues in the country. I've had the privilege of working at some of the top Toronto wedding venues. Select venues have stood out as the best of the best from my personal experience. I've rounded up my choices for the top Toronto wedding venues; I've taken into account aesthetic and food as well as overall quality of service.

Evergreen Brickworks

Brickworks in Toronto is one of my favourite spots to help plan a wedding. It's a little haven in the middle of bustling Toronto. It is surrounded by nature, offers a variety of unique and history filled spaces to host your wedding, and the staff is some of best I have worked with in the city. Not to mention the catering on site, Belong, is top notch.

The Fermenting Cellars

The Fermenting Cellars at first glance may seems a little dark, but once the venue is filled with tables, chairs, flowers and lighting it's a whole new story. Add in some focal lighting, greenery, maybe a touch of drapery and the space is show stopping. I've also found the coordinators onsite to be very helpful and accommodating.

 

The Great Hall

The Great Hall recently underwent a huge revitalization and I am OBSESSED with the space, especially the Drawing Room and Conversation room. You can bring in your catering here so it's a totally customizable and is an affordable space for an intimate wedding.

Graydon Hall

Hello charming English manor in the middle of Toronto!! Graydon Hall is a fairytale venue with an abundance of romance and classic charm. It's known to have some of the best food for weddings in the city and the staff are incredibility detail oriented. The gardens, service, food, and manor all add up to make it one of my top Toronto wedding venues.

Burroughes Building

I've planned a lot of weddings at The Burroughes Building in my time as a planner and it still has me coming back for more! I just adore the loft and city chic vibe of the space. With Food Dudes now being their preferred caterer (one of my fav caterers in the city), not to mention being able to bring your own alcohol, it makes it one of the most appealing spots in the city for my hip downtown dwelling clients.

 

Steam Whistle

Give me exposed brick and wood beams any day over bad carpet and floral wallpaper! Steam Whistle is an iconic landmark in Toronto and also one of the best spots to host your wedding. The roundhouse is so photogenic and character filled. I also love that they offer a great list of caterers to choose from as well as the option to bring your own liquor (you just have to serve Steam Whistle beer of course). The staff is always friendly, accommodating, and there to help create a super seamless wedding.

Archeo

Restaurant quality food at a wedding? Need I go on? Archeo is another gem in the city that ticks off so many boxes as a wedding professional. Amazing food. Check. Outdoor courtyard. Check. A historic dining room that needs very little dressing up. Check. AFFORDABLE. Check!! I couldn't miss Archeo as one of my top Toronto wedding venues.

 

Airship 37

I  just adore this quirky and modern venue. It's crisp white clean vibes make it a totally unique spot for couples looking for something a bit different. The onsite coordinators are also just a dream to work with. There are a ton of interesting additions to this space (like the big old air steam bus parked outside) that bumped this venue onto my list.

2nd Floor Events

2nd Floor Events is one of those spaces that again just excels in so many categories. The space is loft like but still super modern and really well maintained. I've found the staff to be some of the nicest people to work with in the industry. It's location is so accessible and perfect for couples looking for a unique downtown spot to celebrate.

Shangri-La

Toronto's Shangri-La is pretty darn special. It's not the typical type of venue I gravitate towards, but it's a stand out space in Toronto. I absolutely adore the museum room with it floor to ceiling windows and whimsical chandeliers. The onsite catering is to die for. It's an elevated experience from start to finish at the Shangri-La!
