    Dream Come True Fairytale Wedding

    It was our dream to get married in a castle. Casa Loma turned out to be the perfect venue for our ceremony and wedding photos! It is a magnificent castle on a hill overlooking Toronto. Our ceremony was held in the stunning Conservatory with ornate glass doors, marble floors and walls, blooming flowerbeds along both lengths of the room, a beautiful water fountain at the front, gorgeous stained glass windows and a breathtaking stained glass dome on the ceiling allowing for an abundance of natural light. Needless to say, little added decor is required. The castle has a uniquely authentic feel, as it was originally built as a private home. Its architectural grandeur speaks for itself, providing for amazing photography and video both inside and out. Abundant time was allowed for treasured photos in the spectacular Conservatory, the newly renovated bridal suite, and the lovely outdoor grounds with the castle as backdrop.

    A great big thank you to Glynis, our onsite Events Coordinator, who met with us and answered all our questions. Very professional, knowledgeable and reliable. Responded promptly to emails and provided timely followup.

    This beautiful landmark is a historical site open to visitors during the day, so one has to be okay with this. Having said this, the many castle visitors peering into the Conservatory taking photos and video and trying to catch a glimpse of our ceremony made us feel like royalty. Our guests were wowed by the amazing experience. Our onsite day of coordinator, Sera, was a true fairy godmother. She was incredibly attentive and hands on during both ceremony and photography. She made sure everything proceeded smoothly and on time, organizing and ushering in the bridal party and wedding guests, and ensuring that there was minimal interference from castle visitors for outdoor photography and video. Even though we had an allotted time slot, she was very open to suggesting many great photography locations around the castle and never made us feel rushed. On the contrary, her dedication to our happiness was inspiring and magical!

    Thank you for making our dream come true! We would highly recommend this majestic venue to anyone looking for a truly unique and memorable wedding ceremony.

    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 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.

    Perfect Venue, amazing team

    We knew from our first interaction with Alana, at Casa Loma, that this would be the venue of our dreams. Yes, the venue is stunning, but it was Alana who truly went above and beyond to make our wedding dreams come true. Calm, cool and collected throughout the initial planning stages, through to the end of the evening, Alana remained in control of every element and navigated any hiccups with ease. Very early on, we came to her and asked her for a very tailored meal. She was not phased in the slightest-- she set us up with the unparalleled Chef Richard and we worked as a team to develop a meal that our guests are still talking about. The day of, went seamlessly-- from the amazing valets who helped bring in our stuff, to the wait staff, to Alana steering the ship. It was exactly what we'd hoped for. And the meal.. my goodness, the meal. Chef and team outdid themselves. People could not believe the creativity and the execution. To deliver what we'd asked for hot and ready to 150 guests was no small feat, and people couldn't stop remarking on how delicious it was. The waitstaff always ensured glasses were full, the bar was stocked and plates were being cleared in a respectful and quiet way as not to disturb speeches. Thank you again to this stellar team and to Alana and Chef for leading the way for a magnificent day.

    Engagement Shoot gone wrong

    We booked Casa Loma for our engagement shoot - the grounds and backdrop were perfect for what we wanted to achieve and the venue was available (the other location did not line up). I contacted the venue regarding the shoot and got details regarding a photo permit. This is where I went wrong. I understand the need for a permit, but in our case it was totally not required. We were doing simple engagement photos with one photographer. Neither myself, nor my fiance were in formal attire.

    We arrived onsite and checked in and then were told to basically go around but don't go upstairs. No one accompanied us around or gave us directions. Tours were going through our areas and at several times we had to wait for a tour to get out of the way so we could shoot. At times I saw people taken photos with professional cameras who were clearly tourists and it is doubtful that they had a permit. When we arrived, we saw a bride and groom along with professional lighting, etc. onsite, for that I understand a permit, however, we simply had a camera with a flash.

    To pay over $600 for a permit to have no guidance and not even have parking complimentary is terrible. It would have been better for us to simply have paid admission and then simply taken photos.

    I was unhappy to pay over $600 for basically access into the castle. I understand that there were tours and some people were mindful, while others just stepped in our way. Had someone been with us, they could have geared them away for a brief moment while the photo was taken. No one was walking into the front area where the bride and groom were being shot. Tourists with heavy duty cameras were also walking around there shooting posed photos.

    I do believe that the permit system needs to be reviewed as at no point were we provided with a map, or really any direction other than do not go upstairs. We probably could have continued shooting for 4 hours and no one would have known. I knew about the parking, however, once I saw what is "included" with the permit, I couldn't believe that it wasn't. At hotels, if you eat there, they comp the parking.

    We requested a partial refund and were denied.

    If this is the experience I received in regards to a photo permit, I can't imagine how the service would have been if we held our wedding there.
