our story

Have you ever known something was right so deep in your heart and soul, that you didn't hesitate to jump in with both feet? Of course you do,  you wouldn't be here considering our estate for your wedding, if you didn't! Well, that's exactly how Wheatfield Estate came to be...

As Hospitality professionals for over 20 + years (and counting), we had always dreamed of one day owning our own property to host weddings and events. The plan was to find our dream property as a retirement plan many years down the road, but when the opportunity came to purchase this iconic property, we jumped in with both feet - during a Pandemic no less!

Previously loved by Winter Wheat, a whimsical and quirky folk art and country store, our estate's heritage has been a landmark destination in Central Elgin for over 20 years. Wheatfield Cottage, built in 1844, was the original dwelling on the property, and we plan to honour its history, but with a cozy English cottage twist.

While the property itself is considered new as a wedding venue, we are not new to the Wedding Industry. Our years of experience planning events for hotels, convention centres, and our sister business, Twelfth Night Events, has prepared us for this exciting new venture. We look forward to creating an incredible planning experience for our couples for years to come!
