    Our wedding at Ivey Spencer was beautiful! The food was amazing and the it has the most gorgeous places to take photos.

    You get the beautiful old Willow Room for the bride to get ready in. Then for cocktail hour you get the patio and the garden room. For dinner you have the dining hall, then afterwards for dancing you dance in the garden room and still have the patio. You also basically have your own washrooms in the hall. Lots of space and no need for shuffling things around throughout the night.

    The only complaints I would have are that we couldn’t rehearse at the gazebo because it was booked with another event. Also you can’t get into decorate the hall until about 1-2pm because they have lunch for the hotel guests there. So you’re decorating crew has to be speedy to get it all done before a 4pm ceremony.

    Poor Professionalism - Do NOT book Wedding with

    Absolutely disgusted with how the Ivey Spencer Centre handled my wedding. My fiancé and I booked a block of rooms with this hotel over 8 months before our wedding. Once our invitations had gone out, guests had trouble booking a room online, as they were told the reservation was blocked/cancelled. The Ivey Spencer Centre failed to reach out to us and inform us they would be cancelling our block of rooms. Instead, my fiancé and I had to call, were told that there was an "inventory adjustment" that needed to be made and we no longer were able to reserve rooms with them (finding all of this out 2 months before our wedding). How do you operate a business with these skills? I am ashamed we even considered this location as a hotel for our guests. The lack of common curtesy professionalism and communication has me very disappointed. I will never recommend the Ivey Spencer Centre to anyone.

    Wedding Bliss

    Our daughter celebrated her wedding ceremony and reception at Ivey. It was amazing. The grounds were absolutely beautiful for an outdoor ceremony and pictures. The options for guests to be in the lounge, dining room, Garden Room, or patio was the highlight for many of our guests who couldn't stop telling us that this was one of the best weddings they had attended. The food was just incredible, from the appetizers to the main dinner to the gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches and candy bar for late night. The staff definitely made the day even more memorable. They went above and beyond to make sure the day ran smoothly, especially the even coordinator Caitlin Price. She was our angel that day. Every staff member, though, was professional, friendly, and helpful. The guest rooms were comfortable, clean, and very inviting. I can't say enough about how much I appreciate them. Weddings can be stressful but the staff at Ivey were there at every turn to make this event so much easier to plan and implement.
    I would recommend it in a heartbeat!
