About

Century Barn is a wedding venue nestled among the rolling hills of Cavan, Ontario. The seven-generation estate run by the Stewart Family offers the perfect place to host weddings, corporate events, and community functions. With permanent fixtures and amenities, it is much more than a barn. Spectacular sunsets, hayfields, spring blossoms, summer breezes or fall foliage await to impress discerning visitors.

Facilities and capacity

Century Barn can hold a maximum of 140 guests and is available throughout the week for weddings and other special events. The venue has several spaces to host the nuptial celebrations. Outside, couples are welcome to the ceremony garden next to the barn for the ritual service. Afterward, the pair-of-honour and guests can enjoy a cocktail hour and hors d’oeuvres in the outdoor courtyard. Inside, a furnished loft and lounge area is an idyllic setting to enjoy a toast. The Grand Barn also serves as a reception area for a night of dinner and dancing or an alternative ceremony space should the weather turn. The venue is complete with a bar, including a fridge, a freezer, and taps. A wedding suite is open to the nearlyweds inside the barn, fitted with floor-to-ceiling mirrors, a flushable washroom, and electrical outlets. To facilitate outside caterers on the day, the venue has a preparation pad with lighting and water access for an exceptional gourmet experience.

Services offered

Century Barn only hosts one event per day, offering exclusive access for the celebrations. On the day, the venue attendants are available to orient vendors, greet guests and direct parking for seamless event execution. The DIY bar service gives couples the freedom to work within their budget and customize liquor selections for their guests. A booking with Century Barn also includes the use of their tables, banquet chairs and various décor pieces, so there is one less thing to worry about. If the barn's collection does not suit your fancy, several excellent local vendors will have what you are looking for at competitive prices. The service offerings available include but are not limited to:

  • Indoor and outdoor lighting
  • Assortment of tables
  • Padded banquet chairs
  • Vintage wine-barrels
  • Lawn games

    Dream Venue and Team

    My husband and I just got married at Century Barn and we are beyond thrilled that we chose this venue. Century Barn is absolutely stunning, rustic, clean, and offers so many beautiful spots to gather with friends and family and/or take pictures. Our photographer was in love with this venue! We got so many compliments on how beautiful our wedding was at this location! It easily fit our 75-person wedding. We chose the Sunday package that included all the vendors and it made the process so much easier! The best part though, is the unbelievably kind, organized, and helpful team at Century Barn. We were blown away by their service and will miss working with them! They hands down made our wedding day our dream day and we are forever grateful.

    Outstanding venue!

    Working with Brooke was like working with the Venue of our dreams! To say she went above and beyond is the understatement of the century! She continuously worked with us to help accomodate our requests. She followed up with us during the most important timelines and provided helpful suggestions to give us ideas of how to work with the space. We are beyond grateful and would highly recommend this venue. 10/10

    Amazing venue and wonderful family

    Where to start! The Century Barn team were nothing but amazing. When our wedding plans changed unexpectedly, they did everything they could to ensure the reception we later had was just perfect. Their kindness and flexibility were so very much appreciated by my husband and myself. Not to mention the property and barn itself is absolutely stunning and incredibly well-kept. We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather and held our reception out among the gardens. Thank you again for everything and hope to visit again someday!!

    Gorgeous Barn Venue

    We had our wedding at a century Barn in July 2022 and it was exactly the wedding I dreamed of. I walked into the barn and couldn’t believe they had brought all my Pinterest photos to life! I would highly recommend this venue if you are looking for a rustic but elegant venue. It is a family-run business who genuinely cares and went out of their way to ensure the day was perfect and they work with an incredible team of vendors who helped to make it a beautiful stress free day.

    Century Barn Weddings's reply:

    Hi Danielle!

    Thank you so much for sharing this thoughtful review! We really appreciate it. Also, we truly loved having you and Matthew as well as your family and friends. You two are a beautiful couple inside and out! We are so grateful to celebrate your special day at our family home.

    Beautiful venue, inconsidersate owners, difficult preferred vendor.

    I never intend on or enjoy writing a bad review. I just wish I would've known more about this venue before booking.

    I cant tell you how many times I was disappointed and let down by these people. We were taken advantage of and lied to many times over. The service is SO poor, it blows my mind. My heart is broken about the turn of events leading up to and the day of our wedding. The guests had an amazing time and loved the venue, but unfortunately they made this a terrible experience for the two of us and everyone else involved in the wedding party and parents.

    I actually had a few guests mention to me that, David, the owner was extremely rude as he was quite literally yelling at people to leave right as the clock struck 12am for closing time.  He threatened my husband to make sure everything was loaded up that SAME night (yes, just hours after getting married), something that was not mentioned until the 2 days before the wedding. I still have guests asking "what was his problem?".

    My husband (the groom) and a few of his friends spent the last hour and a half cleaning and loading everything up while eveyone else celebrated. This would have been an absolute deal breaker for us, had we known, and we would not have chosen this venue. We were originally told that if we hired the "day of coordinator" for an additional $1000, that she and her team would take care of set up and tear down, and that we could collect our belongings the following morning before the next couple arrived. My husband and I are so upset about this. That is not how you should spend your wedding night.

    The morning of our wedding, myself and the bridal party began getting ready. I started to notice people coming in and setting up for an event that was for sure not ours. I even had a group of guys approach me (the bride) wondering if I could help show them where to set up chairs for the wedding the day after ours...
    They set up a large white tent right beside the barn, 3 industrial sizes stainless appliances under the gazebo and completely invaded our space for SOMEONE ELSE'S wedding, the next day. We didnt pay that amount of money to accommodate someone else's wedding day.

    I felt terrible.. like this day was not about us anymore, but rather the more important wedding that was after ours. Do you think there may have been some correlation between the next wedding and us having to pack and move all our decor and belongings out with only two days notice?
    These are only concerns and disappointments from the day of event. The planning leading up was made difficult by them as well.

    I wish I had a better review for this place. I even feel bad about leaving this review, but i would feel worse not warning future couples.

    Century Barn Weddings's reply:

    Thank you for taking the time to place a review. As disappointed as it makes us feel, we are grateful for your business and it was a pleasure to meet you both. It saddens us to learn that you feel so unhappy. We know you worked incredibly hard to create your dream day and we did, as well. Every wedding is important to us, and every couple’s happiness is our priority. As you know, a wedding has a lot of moving parts and we strive for excellence with every single wedding because we are thrilled that couples choose our venue to start their married life.

    We have taken your remarks to heart and would like to respond to each of your points. 1. There was clearly a misunderstanding regarding the end of night loading out. We wonder if this was because you were first considered booking your wedding on a Saturday and it may have been mentioned that if there was no event booked the following day, you could leave things overnight at the barn. 2. Regrettably, it was my oversight to not discuss the catering tent for the Saturday wedding with you and I accepted responsibility for this. We had the tent removed immediately and made arrangements to reinstall it on Saturday, at our expense. 3. As for the team coming in to set up for Saturday and interrupting you, I had instructed them to check in at our office upon arrival and unfortunately that did not occur. 4. In regards to Dave asking people to leave at midnight: it was actually 12:15 a.m., 15 minutes past the time when the party must come to a close. Dave gave extra time to you and your guests, thinking it might make up a little for the rain Mother Nature dealt during your ceremony.

    We hope you can understand that nothing was deliberately done to hurt you and we are happy that your guests had an amazing time and loved the venue. We wish you all the best as you continue your life together.

    Amazing venue

    This venue is stunning. We loved having this for our wedding day, as if fit our vision perfectly. Susan was wonderful to work with and her barn has so much fun and such a unique place.
    The venue is expensive considering it is only the venue, however for the look it’s amazing.
