    Dream wedding venue!

    We were blown away with Harding Waterfront Estate and the exceptional quality that they provided! We had a shorter 9 month engagement, and we were lucky enough to secure a spot at the venue. The team was in constant communication with us, and would answer any questions we had (and we had a lot) timely. They also worked very well with our Day Of/Month of Coordinator and helped ensure everything ran smoothly.

    The venue is absolutely stunning and the service was impeccable. We continue to get compliments on our food and the great customer service – staff even poured Gingerale in champagne glasses for our pregnant guests so they wouldn’t feel left out during the champage toasts.

    As our wedding was in mid-October, the only drawback was that it was cold and the tent’s heating was a bit temperamental during the reception. The kitchen is outside the tent so one of the side doors were constantly open for the services. The front of the tent was hotter than the back, and sometimes it would be really hot, while other times really cold. However, we would address these concerns with the team and they would adjust the temperature as needed.

    Overall, we had an incredible night and our guests continue to tell us how stunning the venue was. Thank you to the Harding team for making our dream wedding possible.

    Dream Wedding Venue

    If you are looking to have the wedding of your dreams, I highly recommend booking Harding Waterfront Estate. Everything from the location, to the food and drinks, to the staff and the service, exceeded all expectations and I couldn’t be happier that we chose Harding for our wedding this summer.

    We had many guests tell us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to, and many mentioned the gorgeous lakefront setting and five-star service as contributors. The set-up makes for a perfect flow to the evening, with plenty of space for guests to meander around the beautiful gardens and greenery (and you have the entire site to yourself). The tent is stunning and looks so classy when done up, even with minimal decorations like I had. The food was delicious, as were our signature cocktails, a classic lime margarita. Favorites were the Piri Piri Chicken, Vegan Wellington, Eggplant Parm and the Poutine late night meal (came with a full spread of toppings!). Jocilea was an excellent day-of coordinator who was incredibly patient and responsive with us in the lead-up to the event. Guests told us stories that the moment they finished their drink, someone had already noticed and radioed the bar for a new drink before they put it down, and special desserts were provided to guests with dietary restrictions without us even having to ask. There is also free parking on-site and nearby hotels who will provide free shuttles…little things that made the day run smoothly.

    I’m still a bit puzzled why this venue isn’t more well-known in the GTA wedding community, but for anyone considering it, I would highly recommend booking!

    Dream Garden Wedding by the Lake

    Harding Waterfront Estate (HWE) was the perfect wedding venue. Mariah, their event coordinator, made sure that we had the wedding of our dreams. HWE has a beautiful white historic manor, nestled in a beautiful garden that is bordered by lake Ontario. The venue was incredibly elegant and the staff more than accomodating. Our ceremony was hosted against the backdrop of a little inlet in front of the lake, while our reception was held in a beautiful airy glass tent. The food, which was also catered by HWE, was aboslutely delicious. We went for the stations option which provided us with paella, asian street food, a seafood seascape and so much more. The parking lot, with ample space, was also the site of our late night snack truck, which was also organized by the venue. We had poutine, philly cheesesteak sandwiches and calamari.

    HWE and their team helped curate an absolutely beautiful wedding. HWE is perfect if you want a venue that will help take care of important details and provide a romantic setting to your wedding.

    Thank you again Mariah for all of your help in helping us have our dream wedding!

    Amazing Experience

    The moment we chose Harding as our venue for our wedding on May 8th the planning and communication became seamless. We were able to have all our questions answered and set up accordingly for the big day. The day of, everything was more than expected. The staff went above and beyond, were extremely accommodating and all of our guests couldn’t stop singing their praises. A++ or 5 stars, well deserved. We would highly recommend for anyone looking for a great venue for any event.

    A Perfect Day!

    The biggest piece of advice I got ahead of getting married was to expect that nothing will go as expected for your big day.

    HOWEVER, if you're getting married with the team from Harding, this advice won't mean much since they did everything in their power to ensure everything ran smoothly. Our guests loved the food & service team and we are still receiving compliments on the venue!

    Even through all of the COVID postponements, regulations and restrictions, Jocilea and the Harding team handled everything with a smile and never once added any stress to our planning.

    We don't plan on getting married again, but we hope to get to celebrate more once-in-a-lifetime events at Harding Waterfront Estate.

    Thank you for your review, Danielle! It was a pleasure working with you and thank you for choosing us to celebrate your special day with! We can't wait to see your photos once you have them and hope to celebrate another milestone with you and your husband in the future. Congratulations!

    Exceptional service and a stunning location.

    Thanks to Harding my day was perfect! With so much uncertainty around COVID it was definitely not the smoothest planning experience on our end. Harding was flexible, supportive and kept us going. Beautiful grounds, the drinks and food were perfect and to top it all off a killer team.

    The value for what you pay made choosing them a no brainer. Their coordinators Jocilea and Krystal were two steps ahead of us and so supportive through the entire process. The event manager Dora knows how to run an event (despite the COVID chaos) and that filtered right down to the servers who treated our guests as family. I HIGHLY recommend and can safely say you get unmatched service. The compliments from my guests have not stopped. :)

    My wedding was perfect!

    Thank you so much to the amazing Jocilea for all she did to help coordinate my wedding in September. She is so kind, helpful and totally professional. I would highly recommend adding on the day-of coordination package with her - she made my day totally stress free and I could enjoy instead of worry! The venue was absolutely gorgeous too of course and all of our guests were just raving about the location and the FOOD! We are so lucky we had the privilege of being able to get married here.

    Best day ever!

    This venue is absolutely breath taking, and the food, service and just overall experience is on par with how incredible this venue looks. The property is owned by the city of Mississauga and they could not have picked a better catering company in Pegasus Hospitality. The food, the professionalism, the service, the responsiveness - everything was absolutely incredible. Our guests left calling our wedding “the party of the year”. Nothing but a great experience for my fiancé and I and our guests. And a huge shout out to our coordinator Jocilea who managed to answer every single one of my thousands of emails with nothing but professionalism and happiness to help. Thank you thank you thank you for helping make our day the best day ever!!!
