Originally called the Graydon House, this 1930s Georgian manor was first buit by architects Allan George and Walter Moorehouse for Rupert Bain, a broker/financer. Bain wanted to create a "sportsman's paradise" by completing the 29-room estate with stables for race horses, kennels for hunting dogs, a 9-hole golf course and fountains surrounded by spectacular gardens. It became the center for high society life shortly after until it was redesigned into an elegant reception facility in 2000.

We held a same-sex wedding at Graydon Hall Manor and everything was excellent. Lisa Shaw was our wedding planner and did an amazing job at guiding us through the whole process. She is very attentive to details, has a wealth of experience & connections and easy to work with. Our guests were very impressed with the quality of it all and enjoyed themselves immensely.

Graydon Hall couldn't have been more perfect for my dream wedding. The venue alone is gorgeous and was ideal for how intimate I wanted my day to be. Madison was incredible with coordinating and made my day run smoothly. She even helped sew my dress because of a rip right before I ... View more I walked down the isle! They were so great with communication which was important for us because we were out of town clients. The food and staff were amazing. I wouldn't have changed a thing

I was a guest at my friend's recent wedding in August 2016, and the reception took place at Graydon Hall Manor. It was an exceptionally beautiful venue, with fantastic staff and amazing food. Probably the best wedding food I've ever had (the grilled salmon with risotto). The wait ... View more staff were professional and served the food in a timely manner. Everything was hot and tasty. We ate outside under a tented canopy which was beautiful. The inside was nicely spread out, with separate rooms for dancing, sitting (a lounge) and drinking (the bar). The only downside is that the washroom is a single stall, so you have to line up and wait if you need to use it. Other than that, it was a fantastic venue and if the price was a little more affordable, I would definitely have considered it for my own wedding!

My husband and I recently had our wedding at Graydon Hall Manor and we cannot thank Madison enough for all her help. She was truly fantastic and awesome to work with. She made our experience delightful. She was so charming, accommodating and professional. It was really a pleasure ... View more meeting her. The wedding was perfect and all our guests complimented on the food, service and ambiance of Graydon Hall. They were all as blown away as we were. The event ran so smoothly and we both enjoyed ourselves very much. We know this was possible because of all the work Madison and her team put in behind the scenes. Thank you for giving us the best experience! We are so happy we chose Graydon Hall and got Madison as our event manager. :) It was the best decision! We would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful Manor with outstanding service and food! You will not be disappointed and your expectations will be exceeded.

We're so glad that we got married at Graydon Hall, and we're happy to recommend them! To boot, the grounds are beautiful, as you may have seen in pics online. We had an outdoor ceremony on the lawn before moving indoors for the reception. All our photos had beautiful backdrops, ... View more backdrops, from the building exterior, far shots with the landscape and building, to the interior hall and spaces. There was very little that we had to provide in terms of decorations since the place already looks amazing as is. The food also lived up to expectations. They prepare everything in-house, and have a pretty extensive selection. It certainly didn't seem like mass-catered food, but was of good quality, rich flavors and presented attractively. I wasn't surprised that many guests reported that this was the best 'wedding food' they've ever had! All of the staff at GHM were exceedingly professional and helpful. Rebecca was our liaison, and provided valuable assistance from the booking, to the planning, to the day of. She helped us to navigate all the options, selecting apps and linens, and so on, but also gave lots of practical tips from her experience, such as how to schedule our day. She patiently communicated well throughout the whole time, as we kept spamming her with numerous emails with questions and changes. On the day of, she (along with the staff) helped to move the schedule along and worked well with our officiant and other helpers. Our only recommendation is that you should go over the contract very carefully before you sign, as their rules are pretty strict. If you're not sure about something, make sure you discuss this with them first!
