    Our experience with Casa Loma was absolutely abysmal. We selected the venue for the luxurious feel, apparent high level of service, and historical elements. We had a strange feeling after the first meeting when we were accidentally double booked and our planning document was lost. In the following year, we endured three management changes with unique promises to "make our experience better", lost documents, random additional fees previously not mentioned, the "Halloween Haunted Walk" that occurred during our wedding (nobody mentioned this to us before signing the contract), calls and emails that went unanswered for weeks at end, loud music during speeches, disappearing servers, and a very confrontational and belittling sales manager who treated us like cattle vs. clients spending upwards of 50k. I would also like to comment on the positives of the day to provide holistic feedback. Brian, the Banquet Manager, was exceptional. He was attuned to our needs and was always available. The Head Chef was lovely and the food was delicious. The banquet manager & food aside, if we could do it again, we would 100% take our business elsewhere. Leading up to a wedding can be stressful - the ideal venue should alleviate stress by providing sufficient information in a timely fashion. This venue created the majority of our stress as we approached our big day. Highly discourage folks from selecting Casa Loma.

    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.

    It is an extremely beautiful place to have your wedding. We went with simple decor and it was just perfect. The room where the ceremony is held brings in natural lighting and the pictures came out beautifully. Sera was our supervisor during our wedding day and she was wonderful. She was so helpful, flexible and attentive to our needs. She ushered everyone to their right spots at the right times and ensured the guests visiting the castle did not interfere with the ceremony and the pictures/video.

    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 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 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
