    Absolute Perfection From Start To Finish!

    We fell in love with Stonefields from the moment we saw it in person. We booked our wedding in 2019 (for Summer 2021) before we had even heard the words “Covid-19”... Never in a million years did we imagine all our wedding plans would be so violently kiboshed but luckily, we had the absolute best venue and they were incredible to work with throughout our entire planning process (specifically Kylie… corresponding with Kylie was a dream) despite all the ups and downs and constantly changing rules and regulations in regards to the pandemic! They were understanding, flexible, and always ready with a Plan B and a Plan C. We were in the best hands.
    On the big day, Stonefields took care of everything. Their day-of coordinator and all the staff were SO attentive. We just felt like everything was above and beyond what we could have dreamed of. They helped with décor and set-up, they coordinated with our multiple vendors, they helped with timing, they brought us food and drinks before we even thought to ask for it. Everything was so organized and well-planned, and we felt like they really cared.
    It was the absolute best day, I can’t even describe it. Everything was beautiful and perfect and memorable, and their support and advice throughout the entire process from the very first email in 2019 up until after the wedding in 2021 was beyond expectation. They gave us the wedding of our dreams and we will never ever forget it.

    One word, Magical!

    Oh where do we begin?! In January, we found out that it would no longer work for the hall we originally booked to host our wedding reception. Devastated, we reached out to our florist and she suggested Stonefields Estate. When we informed all our vendors about the possible change, they were ecstatic and encouraged us to book with Stonefields Estate. They had all had incredible experiences on site, and were confident that they would host the wedding of our dreams.

    In the midst of the province-wide lockdown, we were immediately able to get a hold of Steve and he provided us with lengthy virtual tours of the property, until we felt certain of Stonefields Estate. Before and after booking, Steve and his team were always available to respond to any questions that we had, via phone call, e-mail, text and in person. We never felt that we were bothersome, and were encouraged to reach out whenever. Steve had even arranged an in person meeting for us with his executive chef to discuss food, as being European this was incredibly important to our families. This exemplified that all staff at Stonefields Estate are truly in this business to make their couples happy, and have the greatest weddings.

    At the tasting, we weren’t only amazed by the food, but of the professionalism of all staff on site. When the servers came out, it went so smoothly that it looked like a choreography. We watched as Steve spoke to each and everyone of us (his couples), and the excitement he felt for us with our momentous days ahead.

    Having a large bridal party and family, we were concerned of how the rehearsal would go. We had no reason to be worried, as Erin, one of our day of coordinators (which is included in the package) was welcoming and organized; simply, she had it all under control!

    Fast forward to our wedding day… We truly felt as if we were in a children’s storybook, and that in large part is due to Stonefields Estate, Steve and all his organized, ready and friendly staff. The environment they created for us and our guests was simply magical. This may sound silly, but we felt that we were in utopia.

    We can’t wait for a big anniversary to relive it all!

    We can’t thank you enough and love you very much Stonefields Estate!

    Dream Venue

    I fell in love with Stonefields the first time I saw them online. One month post-proposal we went to go see it in person. Steve (one of the owners) was very personable, and informative on all the details. We booked within the next few days (1.5 years in advance). All of the team from the beginning to the day of were amazing to deal with. Kylie helped us plan for the big day, she was so great with answering all my questions and dealing with all the covid concerns and changes. Day of staff were amazing and made my day go off perfectly (Erin, holly, the bar staff, etc.). The food was delicious, multiple guests came up saying it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had, especially the steak and the toffee mouse. We loved having Stonefields Estate exclusively for our wedding day, so many beautiful locations for the ceremony and photos. 100% recommend Stonefields.

    Wonderful site and experience

    It has been a pleasure to work with Stonefields for our wedding. They have been always there for us before, during and after. They were super organized and help us to get the things done.

    Stonefields experience

    Honestly, the day couldn’t have been more perfect. The staff were all amazing and prompt, the venue itself is well kept and absolutely stunning, and everyone was very respectful! Food is amazing and there are a lot of ceremony sites to choose from. They are flexible and can accommodate you in anyway you want! We loved it so much we actually got married here twice ;) literally. Small family ceremony with 10 folks thanks to covid and then the actual wedding two months later! Amazing experience.

    A dream of a day!

    We had our special day during the COVID pandemic and it couldn’t have been more special. We were limited to 10 guests and ceremony only which was held outside in the picturesque backdrop. Stonefields allowed us to stay overnight in the farmhouse and provided us with a romantic dinner for two. Throughout the entire 1.5 years we worked with them Steve and Kylie were amazing, so accommodating and so quick with their responses. With the small group we were worried how our day would turn out but we are so glad we went through with it on a smaller scale. It was a beautiful day we will remember forever! Thank you again Stonefields

    The most beautiful venue with the loveliest owners!

    I have so much to say that I don’t even know where to start with this review. I love Stonefields with all of my heart, and I cannot thank their team enough for everything that they did to make our wedding dreams come true. Our wedding was a bit of a unique one, as we got married in the time of COVID-19- October 2020. It was a huge roller coaster from the time that we first booked the venue to the actual wedding day, with all of the new restrictions, on and off lockdowns etc… I often did not even know if our wedding was actually going to happen, or if we would need to postpone it. Nonetheless, it did end up taking place on the original day, and I would not have wanted it any other way. I had heard horror stories of brides feeling ripped off by their venues, and of lack of communication between venue and bride/groom. I am fortunate enough to have not had any of these experiences. In fact, Stonefields was an absolute dream to work with. From the beginning, I was impressed by their level of organization, and how detail-oriented and on top of everything they were. This did not change whatsoever once the pandemic hit- their team provided consistent, regular weekly updates as to where things stood, and how weddings would be able to operate, and they always answered any questions I had in an extremely timely manner. They were able to accommodate so much with the restrictions during the pandemic, and were there for me during my lowest moments whether that was via phone or email. When working with Stonefields, you did not feel like you were working with an outside business; it truly felt like they were family, and the owners wanting the absolute best for you every step of the way. Steve and Stephanie are the most lovely couple who own this stunning venue, and I cannot ever thank them enough for everything that they did. The rest of the team was also absolutely incredible, with a special shout out to Kylie who was the most organized, efficient, calming person to work with throughout this entire journey. Every single member of this team is so incredible, and I also want to give thanks to Angela, for always keeping on top of the payment schedule for us, Holly, for helping with coordinating everything on the day of always with a smile on her face, and Chef James who truly makes the most delicious food. My family and friends were all blown away by the calibre of this wedding, especially the beauty of this venue, and the food. Even the picky eaters in my family all said that this was the most delicious wedding food they have ever eaten in their lives, and I would agree with that, no doubt! Stonefields was the one venue that was able to promise us halal meat from the start, without any questions. Most other venues had no clue what that even was, and immediately said they cannot provide it, while Steve knew right away that he could provide it and for a very minimal additional cost. Steve also helped so much on the actual wedding day, and did so much without even telling me to help keep my stresses low. I only knew from my stepmother who was helping to coordinate everything on the wedding day that he went the extra mile to ensure that my rented sparklers were working, including making extra phone calls, and finding an extension cord that had been missing. Talk about an incredible host! He also consistently checked up on my husband and I to ensure that we were comfortable, and see if we needed anything. Please do not hesitate when booking this venue. They will not disappoint you, and you will have the time of your life from beginning to end. A part of me was sad when my wedding was over, because it meant that I was no longer working with this fantastic group of individuals. I would have my wedding here over and over and over again. Thank you again Stonefields from the bottom of my heart for everything that you have done for us!
