    I can't recommend this venue enough

    The staff at the Gladstone were so accommodating, kind and professional - they really made our day more than perfect. The atmosphere is so cool, the food is absolutely incredible, and they provide all the essentials for the venue (no renting tables, chairs etc!). Try to book the tower suite if you can - it is a beautiful two story apartment style room complete with kitchenette. It was the perfect size to get ready in (4 bridesmaids, two moms and me), we got our hair and makeup done on the first level while my husband got ready on the second level, and we had our first look on the roof!

    They really made our day so stress free, I can't thank everyone at the Gladstone enough.

    Great experience - would recommend 10/10!

    We loved the Gladstone and had a perfect night! It felt like we just showed up and the night went exactly as planned around us. They were flexible when we had a few last minute changes, and completely attentive the day of the wedding. It was perfect!

    Wedding Reception

    We knew as soon as we met Sarah that we made the right choice with the Gladstone for our wedding party. All of the staff were incredible from start to finish. Professional, responsive, courteous, accommodating ... the list goes on. The Gladstone is a beautiful location, and we just can't say enough about Sarah, Daniel and the entire Gladstone team.

    Wonderful venue and staff

    During and after our wedding at the Gladstone, we’ve received countless compliments from our guests about the venue, dinner and the quality of the services. We went with the Summer Love Package, and its cost included the ballroom for ceremony and dinner, the 2nd floor space for cocktail reception with drinks and hors d'oeuvres, 3 course dinner itself, the bridal suite all-day access, menu and drink tastings, and many other services. We were warmly and professionally taken care of, but did not feel suffocated or pressured into any decisions. Thank you Sarah, Daniel and the Gladstone staff for an incredible experience!

    Amazing venue. Sarah is great to work with!

    Had our wedding reception at the Gladstone. The venue has so much character - fell in love with it and signed the contract on our first ocular. Sarah was a gem to work with - she was so responsive and catered to our every request! It was so easy to work with her - thank you so much, Sarah!

    Food was great! I was nervous about the quality of the steak, but it was tender and flavourful. The egg side that came it with is to die for. I wasn’t able to try the food during cocktail hour, but our guests were raving about it. Also got an open bar package which was fully enjoyed by our guests. The summer love cocktail was so good.

    Special thanks to Jessica (AV head) and Daniel (event manager) for everything! We had last minute requests that the team handled quite well - Daniel told me to relax, and that it was his job to fix everything. That meant so much to me.

    Thank you for making our wedding one for the books. ❤️
