@oliviagdennis:  What part of Southern Ontario are you looking for? Maybe I can help I’ve searched the area high and low for something like that as well. We are in London and are having it at the Watson Porter Pavilion in Fanshawe Conservation Area.

Hi there, when booking my wedding we were looking into a more “rustic” venue, and eventually got off that band wagon. But a few places we looking in the Kitchener/Waterloo area were: Grist Mill in Waterloo(For the ceremony), Victoria Park Pavilion (Kitchener), Cambridge Mill (more of an “upscale” rustic) and Steckle Farm in Kitchener. Good luck!

@oliviagdennis:  We went with Watson Porter because it could hold the amount of people we needed and had very little rules compared to the pioneer village. The bathrooms are not the greatest in the world (not new and updated) but I think they will be nicer than johny on the sopts. We also spend a lot of time in the park and the venue reminded me of my old camp dining hall which I love so it had a bit of meaning for us.

Have you looked into Steckle Herritage Farm in Kitchener? I think there is also a barn at Balls Falls in welland or Belemere winery in London. Or one venue I really loved that wasn’t a barn but rustic and elegant was the Ancaster Mill.

@oliviagdennis:

Not sure if you fond something but we got married at a private barn that was our photographer’s friend (stunning!!) and they are open to renting it out again. No minimim and they charge ~3500 for the venue but you need to bring everything in. Let me know if you want more info 🙂

Very late in replying to this, but would you mind sharing where the private barn was?

Commenting for future brides looking at this. Barn weddings have become so popular and I was sad when seemingly every barn was booked for my upcoming October 3, 2015 wedding back when I started looking ONE YEAR ago! Crazy! Wanted to say we went with Knollwood Golf and Country Club in Ancaster. Their reception space is a renovated barn with exposed beams, wooden bar and copper hooded fireplace focal point. It’s beautiful. Congrats OP on finding your venue!! We also considered Dyment’s Family Farm in Dundas (don’t do October weddings), Country Hertiage Park in Milton (booked) and Balls Falls Conservation barn in Vineland (also booked)

We booked with Grey Silo Golf Course in Waterloo, Ontario.  It holds 130 people. Have you looked at this venue?  It doesn’t need a lot of decorations which is nice 🙂

Can you let me know how Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority’s Tiffin Centre was? I have a friend in that area that is looking and I would like to recommend this to her.
