    Great place for ceremony and reception. Got very very lucky with 15 months waiting time for a Saturday. Everything from food, venue and service was excellent. Staff was friendly and happy however some bar staff could be a bit friendlier. Many guests complimented how good the food ... View more food was, service was great and how beautiful the venue was. They had a great time. It is pricer to book compared to other venues but you get what you pay for. Definitely worth it in my opinion. Very highly recommended. Thank you Bruce for helping make our day special.

    We had our ceremony in the Conservatory and the reception in the Glass Pavilion. It was so beautiful. The food was delicious, and the service was great. We also used a day-of coordinator through the venue, which I would highly recommend. It was very helpful having someone ... View more coordinate the ceremony in particular. There was a beautiful bridal suite where we could get ready and take photos. Our wedding was during the day, so there were tourists there, but they did a great job of blocking off our space and it didn't interfere with our experience. Our guests really loved the space and overall we had a wonderful experience. I would recommend Casa Loma

    My now husband is from California and when he came down to visit me I took him to Casa Loma as apart of site seeing Toronto. He was in awe! He immediately turned to me and said we were going to get married here. I just laughed it off as we weren't even engaged at that point.I ... View more I swear he proposed shortly thereafter so he could get married here. Ha! The staff were incredible and Cecil the head chef was amazing! He did a 3 course Indian course that was to die for! Our day of Coordinator, Nilusha, was so helpful and made our day seamless. Everyone said that this was the best wedding they've been to! We are definitely coming back for our 10th wedding anniversary! :) - Nav Bali

    We had our Ceremony at Casa Loma on September 12, 2015. Sarah was our coordinator for our ceremony at Casa Loma. She was exceedingly above expectations. During the rehearsal she was on point with enough detail to put our minds at ease for the day. She was able to answer all our ... View more our questions with assurance that she will make sure the day runs smooth. She absolutely delivered. She stuck to the time schedule and got everything organized in a way that I only had to worry about reading my personal vows! She was able to organize the pictures taking as well, which was important since we had big families on both sides. Our photographer was on a tight schedule so she managed that well. As we were wrapping up for the day, she was kind enough to offer great in-venue locations for the photography, which made from great video and picture. The only downside to having the ceremony and photos here are that there are a lot of tourists at Casa loma and it can be challenging getting photos and videos without people in the background. Also because we had our wedding during the TIFF festival in Toronto we were not informed that there were tents that were put up in the gardens which interfered with a few locations our photographer wanted. Overall, it is a good venue rain or shine!

    We were lucky enough to have our wedding ceremony and reception at Casa Loma last month! From start to finish, and in the planning stages, the coordinator we worked with and entire staff was top notch! The food and quality of service was even better and at a level that surpassed ...

Last but not least - the venue - Liberty Group has done a fantastic job in just over a year at upping the anty at Casa Loma and making a beautiful Canadian landmark ever more magnificent!
