    Amazing Venue & Staff

    What an amazing place to get married! We had initially settled on the Spice Factory as one of our top venue choices based on the style of the building, we fell in love with the exposed brick and harvest tables we saw in pictures. Once we visited and spoke with Natasha we realized the venue couldn't be more perfect for us! Important things like the chairs, tables, linens, ceremony arbor, and a day-of coordinator were included, and the responsiveness of the staff was fantastic! They were always available to answer any questions we had!

    The day of our wedding the staff went ABOVE and BEYOND and helped out with all the small details that no bride wants to be thinking about on their wedding day! And they were very flexible with any last minute changes we had.

    I would give them a solid 10/10 and recommend the venue and staff to anyone!! Thank you again Spice Factory team!

    A venue with style that is also well-organized!

    We had an excellent experience having our wedding at The Spice Factory. We initially chose this venue because we loved its style, and things like nice chairs, tables, linens, ceremony arbor, and a day-of coordinator were included - lots of items we could immediately check off our list. But they ended up exceeding our expectations. They were always responsive, even when we sent questions far in advance of our wedding, and even given that there was a bit of staff turnover.

    Once we got close to the 3-month mark, Natasha was on it! She was so organized and helpful, and she made me more organized. She promptly scheduled our 3-month and 1-month meetings, and she was accommodating to our schedules and had no problems with scheduling them beyond work hours, which was so helpful to us as we are very busy and had to drive from Toronto each time.

    On the days of our rehearsal dinner and wedding, the team really went above and beyond. Natasha even steamed my dress for me and worked with the staff to move our ceremony arbor for use during our reception.

    I will also say that their preferred vendor list was a life saver for me. We were very happy with the photographer, officiant, florals, and cake/dessert vendors that we got from their list - it's clear that Spice Factory has high standards.

    Thank you Spice Factory -- highly recommended!

    My dream venue

    I could not have been happier with the Spice Factory. I knew I wanted to get married there even before I met my now husband. They completely fulfilled all of our expectations and ALWAYS went above and beyond. They answered all of our questions in a professional matter and we knew exactly what we were getting/paying for. No hidden costs or surprises. Our guests loved the venue and its uniqueness so much!

    We found the Spice Factory before planning our wedding by chance, and kept returning to it when making choices on venue for our wedding. We loved the look of the old building and the updates made. We actually booked the venue without seeing it from out of province and had no regrets with our choice. Alex worked with our wedding planner and made the entire process easy. The venue staff were exceptional including bartending, helping with tear down, and allowing us to have our rehearsal on site. The bridal suite is also a lovely room and we enjoyed the ease of getting ready on site. We would very highly reccomend The Spice Factory for your wedding or other event.

    Covid19 wedding disaster

    The Spice Factory is absolutely beautiful and we were looking forward to having our wedding here in November 2020. However due to all the uncertainty surrounding COVID 19 we made the decision to postpone our wedding to 2021. This is where everything went wrong and the staff and owner at the Spice Factory continue to be unreasonable and refuse to honour our contract. When we originally signed our contract in August 2019 we included the option to bring our own outside caterer in the signed contract and put down a deposit with both the Spice Factory and our outside caterer. When we decided to postpone our wedding due to these extraordinary circumstances surrounding the coronavirus our caterer and other vendors were extremely accommodating. The same cannot be said for the Spice Factory. If we wanted to postpone our wedding and still use the outside caterer as per our contract we were told we could only reschedule to a date between January-April 2021 and that if we wanted a date between May-December 2021 we would have to use the Spice Factory in house caterer since they are planning on phasing out using outside catering. We then asked for our deposit back because that would not work for us and we thought they would be understanding due to everything going on with COVID 19. If we were to use their in house caterer it would be significantly more expensive than using the caterer we had already hired plus we would loose our deposit with the caterer we had put a deposit down with. We also asked that they please make an exception due to COVID 19 and let us use our outside caterer for a date between May-December 2021. They still refuse to accommodate. We do not think we are being unreasonable as no one could have expected this to happen.
