Here are some commonly asked questions to guide you through your decision making process.
Please review and if we've missed something, let us know!
No, our venue does not provide tables or chairs as there are just too many options to consider for your reception and style! We are happy to coordinate all rentals for you based on your style and budget.
No, our venue does not provide any decor, rentals, florals or upgraded lighting (we do include bistro lighting for you!). Consider it carte blanche when it comes to designing your wedding on our property. Our Venue Coordinator will work closely with you to coordinate any decor or rentals you may require outside of a professional decorator.
We have a list of preferred Caterers that are available for you to choose from. Our Venue Coordinator will work closely with you to create a customized menu based on your style, budget and service style (food stations or plated). We do not allow Caterers that are not on our list due to strict Health & Safety requirements with outdoor weddings, governed by the Province of Ontario. Looking for Catering packages? We have those too! For the couple who would rather have a per person price for food and beverage, ask about our packages with North Moore Catering.
We allow external vendors for cottage catering, sweet tables, wedding cakes, and limited late night services. All vendors must be approved before booking to ensure they adhere to food safety guidelines.
Yes, you are welcome to bring your own alcohol! We require a Special Occasions Permit, Party Alcohol Liability Insurance and for you to book a Bartender from our list of approved Bartenders. They will work closely with you to plan your alcohol purchases, signature cocktails, and all ice, mix and glassware. We will work with you to coordinate your permit and insurance - it's easy!
Last call is at 12:30 AM. Your guests will have 30 minutes to finish existing drinks before glassware is cleared and everyone must leave the property.
We have a list of exceptional DJ companies that have experience working with our venue that you can choose from - within all genres and cultural backgrounds. Any requests for DJ’s not on our preferred list will require approval from our venue as well as an in-person tour and meeting with the DJ of your choice.
We have a variety of musicians to complement your ceremony, cocktail reception, or dinner entertainment needs. Our venue coordinator will work with you to coordinate options, if needed. Please see our list of preferred vendors.
Yes, we have ample parking available onsite. We strongly encourage booking shuttles for your guests as we prefer that your guests can enjoy themselves responsibly, without the worry of driving or coming back to get their vehicles the next day.
Pets are welcome on the property for the purpose of photos and the ceremony. Pets must be removed from the property before dinner service can commence. Service animals are exempt from time restrictions and are welcome at all times. Should you wish to have animals on property as a form of entertainment, permission must be obtained in writing by the Venue and any necessary permits or insurance must be obtained by the renter.
The venue will provide a designated smoking and vaping area. Smoking is prohibited in any other location of the property. Any breach of this regulation may result in damage or cleaning fees due to the nature of our property.
As the venue, we focus exclusively on ensuring the services we offer are executed so that your experience is exceptional. We strongly recommend that clients hire a Professional Wedding Planner to ensure your day runs seamlessly beyond the venue. Our Venue Coordinator does not replace the role of a Wedding Planner. Please ask us for recommendations!
Upon signing a contract, we require a 50% non-refundable deposit to secure the date. 30 days prior to your wedding, we require final payment. Payment can be made by e-transfer, cash or cheque. Credit card payments are subject to a 5% Administrative fee and must be approved in advance. Payment plans are available upon request.
Once a commitment has been made for a specific date, any cancellations would forfeit any monies paid towards the venue. All payments made are considered non-refundable once made and are considered liquidated damages in the event of a cancellation.
In the event that the Client should reschedule their wedding, the Venue will only honour one date change, assuming they are available on the newly selected date, within the same booking calendar.
Any postponed weddings to a Saturday within a new season of weddings (June - October of the following year) will be subject to an additional fee of $3,500 + HST.
Should the Renter choose to postpone their wedding with no future date, the Venue is not required or obligated to provide refunds or credit for future use and the postponement will be treated as a cancellation.
