@MDolly:  There’s Balls Falls, which has a barn type venue.  Also Hamilton conservation authority has some great venues, I’d have to find the link for you.  Let me dig around a bit on that one.  

Here’s a link to a wedding at Balls Falls:

Also, Springer House in Burlington is a small but unique venue…..a friend had a wedding there and they ended the night with a bonfire and s’mores.  Yum!

As for winery venues, there’s Inn on the Twenty in Jordan, also Hernder Estates.

@MDolly:  I am getting married at the Old Mill Inn & Spa, downtown Toronto, for 70 people, at $100 per person for plated meal and open bar for 5 hours – so $15K is definitely doable!!!

  • Wedding: October 2013

I’m getting married at a historic site in the Newmarket area (North GTA). It’s called the Sharon Temple. It’s an old church that is now just a museum. It’s gorgeous, and only $1500 for the ceremony and reception. Sorry I only have a pic of the ceremony space, but the reception space is a very lovely little hall, full of personality.

Our wedding is this Oct. 5th, and we just booked it last week! You don’t need to book SUPER far in advance, dependign on the time of year.

@MrsSnowMountain:  i grew up in newmarket : )  we used to go to the sharon temple on school trips so this post made me happy! it will be a lovely wedding venue.



@MDolly:  have you looked at doctor’s house in kleinburg? it’s not super close to burlington but i think it’s perfect for what you want. there is little chapel onsite and hten a great patio for the cocktail hour… and a nice little reception space. i’m not sure on the prices so you’d have to contact them. and i know they are reno-ing/have reno’d so i’m not sure if that will take away from the charm of the place. but it’s worth checking out.

also when a friend was getting married i did a bit of research for her and i thought liuna gardens in stoney creek looked great. check it out!

This might be too far, but I got married at Elsie Perrin Estates in London. Renting the venue is $1500 for the day, and you get the entire grounds. They also only schedule one event/day, and have a gorgeous bridal suite. The house is also already decorated, and has a great old library with first edition books, and awesome old furniture, so you can spend very little on decor, and it’s still gorgeous.

@MDolly:  Check out De La Salle Heritage House in Toronto. There is not a lot of information about the venue online because they only recently started doing weddings. Here is a link to their flickr page: http:[email protected]/sets/72157626176241554

I don’t have the information anymore, so I can’t remember the exact rental fee, but it is very reasonable and includes use of almost the entire house (including several guest bedrooms) all day and overnight. It also includes chivari chairs. You provide the caterer and the alcohol, which can of course really help to control the cost.

I had the exact same criteria as you when picking our wedding venue! We’re getting married in just under two weeks at Hernder Estate Wines in St. Catharines.

Hernder Estate Wines

Here are just a few things that sold me on the place:

– all inclusive  and fair prices (no hidden costs, and almost everything you need is included! this is such a bonus, since like you I wasn’t feeling party planning stress)

– the wine is seriously delicious, as well as the food

– it’s not a typical hall/ballroom and definitely has rustic charm to it

– the people working there are amazing… from the coordinator, to the waitstaff & bartenders… I can’t say enough good things about them

– choice to have ceremony on site (with two locations)

@MDolly:  Totally do able on you buget


Have you looked at The Old Springer House in Burlington? Barn type wedding with an old 1800 house as a backdrop. There prices are very resonable. You can use their hall or place a tent on property

theys also have another venue in Mississauga The Old Barber House. Also another old house

meg.colleen:  Are you in the same area? if so Country Heritage Farm in Milton would be perfect. It’s a gorgeous barn and site and the catering is very reasonable. Our wedding is in Oakville so I’ve looked all around the area haha. We would have booked Country Heritage farm had it not been all booked for this summer back last summer when I called. If your wedding isn’t for a while though, check them out: you can also google “wedding country heritage farm” and you’ll get gorgeous rustic wedding that have been done there. Hope that helps!

Songstress_7:  thanks 😉 Ill check out the website!! I’m in the kitchener-Waterloo area, So fairly close but we’ll be having family come from all over Ontario (and Canada) so most places within a few hours distance are reasonable to us. Where did you wind up booking in oakville?

I have to admit, we’re not “technically” engaged yet… but we will be within the next few months 😉 we’ve been talking about a wedding next summer – I suppose it depends on how long it takes for my man to propose 😉 I don’t wanna book anything beforehand…
