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.Sent on 25/05/2017

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.Sent on 08/02/2020

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.Sent on 05/11/2018
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.

Summer Wedding Casa Loma
We had our ceremony and reception at Casa Loma this June and it was amazing. We were married in the conservatory with our reception in the library. Our cocktail hour was planned for the terrace although it was misting a bit outside so we used the grand hall and people could go in and out as they pleased. Our venue coordinator Alana was amazing. She was with us from our first site visit and we can’t say enough about her. She always got back to us quickly with our countless questions and gave us great guidance and suggestions related to the venue when it came to our tasting and making decisions.Sent on 08/09/2019
Leading up to the day and especially the day of she worked magic. The day ran so smoothly, it’s impressive how quickly they can turn their spaces around between ceremony dinner and dancing.
Because the venue is a historical site by day there is some limited flexibility in terms of how early you can start your ceremony and how late your function can run (1am). This is just the nature of the venue though and something you have to be ok with when booking.
The venue itself is beautiful. We didn’t want to have to bring in many decorations and did not need to. The conservatory is a spectacular ceremony space we’ll never forget and we loved the library for our dinner as well. The food was delicious and the staff and service were 5 star all around. We wouldn’t change a thing about our day and will never forget it.

The service from the start to the actual wedding day is excellent and above and beyond. Glynis our rep and coordinator and Sera the lady who was there on our wedding day to supervise are very accommodating. The place is really beautiful.Sent on 26/08/2018
