The Ontario Heritage Act works to protect buildings with historical significance. As a result, Toronto has managed to preserve its stunning architectural history going as far back as 1794. Many of these heritage buildings now serve as beautiful wedding venues that might be perfect for your special day.
Each heritage venue has its own charm. Rich history and stories are rooted within their walls, each boasting unique architectural designs – some with red brick and stone foundations, others with weathered wood or exposed steel beams. When it comes to finding the perfect wedding venue, Toronto has plenty of hidden gems across the city that will help bring your dream wedding come to life.
To help get your venue search started, here is a list of five historic wedding venues that Toronto has to offer.
As Toronto’s top catering company, we have in-depth experience in both wedding catering and wedding planning. We recently wrote about the “Pros and Cons of Having a Backyard Wedding in Toronto” and were really happy to hear how this helped many couples with their wedding plans. As summer is almost over and we are heading into the fall, we wanted to share some of our expertise and experience for people considering getting married during this beautiful season. While they are wonderful, fall weddings aren’t without their own unique challenges.
It’s without question that fall weddings have significantly grown in popularity in recent years. And why wouldn’t they? The fall in Ontario has a lot to offer to make your wedding spectacular. From gorgeous foliage colours to an increased availability for popular outdoor venues, you can often have the best options available. As well, you have an abundance of fresh, seasonal, local fruits and vegetables that can be utilized by your caterer, and this on its own an compelling reason to get married in the fall! Having an understanding of the challenges that you may face when holding an outdoor fall wedding will help you make an informed decision on the best venue in Toronto for your special day.
Based on our 30 years experience catering weddings, the two biggest challenges many couples face with holding a fall wedding are timing the date correctly to the foliage changes and handling the unpredictable weather.

June is Pride month in Ontario; when we come together to not only celebrate our differences, but to also to appreciate our rights to be who we want to be and to love whomever we want to love. It was also the month that we got to know Stephen & Tony, and helped make their wedding day as beautiful as they are.

It’s that time of the year! Everyone is either trying to lose all that holiday weight or make up for all the money they spent over the holidays; of course, it’s also the season of love and weddings to come! In recent years, as a direct result of globalization, we’ve been seeing more and more people from different parts of the world with different backgrounds fall in love and celebrate their union with a wedding here in Toronto. While multicultural unions are not new, they are becoming increasingly common; this has made them a hot topic in Toronto’s wedding catering scene.
For any wedding, it is imperative that everything come together seamlessly; multicultural unions bring the additional challenge of integrating both (or all) cultures in the celebration so that they’re equally represented. Barring the décor, the music, and the drinks, the wedding menu is an infallible way to guarantee a fusion of cultures and incredible flavours. Regardless of which Toronto Catering company you choose to work with, we highly recommend using a custom caterer that is capable of designing a wedding menu that is unique to you and representative of your heritage.
