The ceremony site also features a natural wood arch and vintage pew seating for an eye-catching, pastoral aesthetic. The onsite barn acts as an intimate space for indoor receptions, with its customizable floor plan and exposed wooden walls along with a seperate catering pavillion. Vintage chandeliers hang from the ceiling to cover events in a warm, elegant glow. You will also be free to use the acres of flourishing land for your first looks or photo sessions.

The Woven Willow

Heather and Mike are amazing, the venue is beautiful, it’s remote and secluded from any big cities/major highways. We looked at 8 other venues, The Woven Willow was the first one we looked at. Nothing else lived up to it, I could not picture having a better day anywhere else!

Everything you could need!

I can't tell you how anxious and stressed I was about finding a venue, I looked into many different places all filling me with more anxiety until I met Heather. She took all the nervous energy and fears I had and threw them away. Not only that but her vision for weddings at The Woven Willow is breathtaking. I cannot wait to get married here!

Can’t Wait For The Wedding!!

Heather and Mile have been so amazing to work with! My fiancé and I are in love with their energy, friendliness, humour and of course, the venue itself. Their communication has been incredible while the venue is being built, their vision is exactly what we are looking for, for our super special day! 7 months and counting until we get our wedding day hosted by the 2 most amazing people ever!

You definitely get what you pay for!!! And much more!!!!

Had our wedding end of June and did just the ceremony package which was what we were after. Heather and Mike were extremely accommodating and made every request a reality before we even asked for it which was awesome and such a relief. If we wanted something changed all we had to do was ask and it was done better than expected. Signing their wall with the burning pen made pictures soo amazing but also a lasting memory that we will be able to go back to and remember forever.
Highly recommend The Woven Willow but also to the wonderful couple Mike and Heather for giving us such a beautiful day to remember and cherish forever!!!!

The Woven Willow is highly recommended. The owners were incredible to work with.

We were overjoyed to find this venue. We wanted an intimate and country rustic wedding and had to look no further once touring the venue. The owners were super friendly and genuine people with amazing wedding vision. They were very accommodating for us and made us feel valued !
