    Spring Wedding

    everything from the initial consult to the finished product was well run and well organized. The venue is gorgeous, food was amazing and our wedding adviser J was a delight to deal with.
    Couldn't recommend this venue enough.

    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.

    What an Amazing Venue!

    What a stunning and great place to have a wedding! They cater to only one event so the entire venue is exclusive to you and your guest. Our original wedding date was May 2021, however due to the pandemic we had to postpone but managed to get a date at the end of October 2021. It was almost a blessing in disguise because the venue is absolutely stunning in the fall and made for amazing photos!

    Jocilea, our wedding coordinator was amazing. She is the kind of professional you would want to be dealing with when navigating a wedding during a pandemic. She responded to emails promptly and was always so friendly! The day of the wedding, I was impressed by the amount of staff that were there to cater to our guest and the entire team was kind, friendly and professional. We had a buffet reception and the food, from the appetizers to the late night spread was amazing and was a big hit with all of our guest. Our main goal for our wedding was that our guests had a great time and Harding definitely delivered with their outstanding service.

    10/10 recommend Harding as a venue!

    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.

    Harding Waterfront Estate's reply:

    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.

    Hello Elizabeth! Thank you so much for your kind words and for choosing Harding Waterfront Estate for your special day. It was a pleasure hosting you and we hope to see you again soon! Congratulations to you and your husband :)

    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!!!

    Laura, thank you so much for your review. Thank you for choosing Harding Estate to host your big day, we wish you both all the best as you begin this new chapter!

    Beautiful Venue, But Things to Keep in Mind

    My husband and I had our wedding at Harding Waterfront Estate in September and it was gorgeous. The weather was perfect and the venue was beautifully decorated.

    However, there are some things that I'd like to relay to other couples who are thinking of booking with Harding Waterfront for their wedding.

    First, the City of Mississauga manages this venue and they have a contract with a particular catering company. At the time of booking (end of January 2017), we were aware that they were still trying to work out a caterer for their 2017/2018 contract. But, we were told that a caterer would be figured out by the Spring of 2017 and there was nothing to be worried about for our September 2018 wedding.

    I followed up with the City in September 2017 to inquire about booking our tasting with the catering company. We were then told that they were again working out a contract with the catering company and we would be advised in early 2018 as to whom the catering company would be for our wedding. This was a bit concerning to us but, again, we were reassured that everything would be worked out well before our wedding date.

    Early 2018 arrived and I followed up again about the status of the caterer. We were then told that they hadn't worked it out yet and we would know by June or July of 2018--a couple months before our wedding!

    Their inconsistencies with their catering contract really impacted our wedding timelines. I planned our wedding on my own and this was very stressful to deal with in the months leading up to our wedding. or instance, I was unable to send our invitations in a timely manner because I had not worked out the proper times for the day (i.e. when the ceremony would start, what time cocktail hour would be, etc.). (Note: we had our ceremony at Harding, as well.)

    Also, the City will not allow you to bring in a third party caterer. We asked, given the circumstances, if we would could hire our own catering company and they refused. So, keep this in mind.

    Second, the venue fee is about $1500, which I thought was pretty good considering the other places we looked at. But, don't be fooled. The catering company they work with charges you their fees for the ceremony, food, and any additional decor rentals you decide on. They then forward that invoice to the City and you are then billed by the City.

    We had already paid over $15K in deposits by our wedding and we ended up paying an additional $15K after the wedding with taxes in. We did not expect this given the previous invoices given to us by the City. We anticipated an additional $7-8K--not the aforementioned.

    Third, keep in mind that this venue is in a highly wooded area. Therefore, do not count on the cleanliness of the actual buildings. A couple days before our wedding, we did a walk through and noticed ginormous spider webs on the lanterns hanging beside the doors to the washrooms and where they keep the food on the day of the wedding. I brought this up with someone at the City and he advised it would be handled. It was not. Thankfully, I hired a month-of coordinator and she was nice enough to Swiffer the areas that our guests would be walking around.

    There are some other minor issues that we had, but the ones noted above were the main issues we had with the venue. So, as gorgeous as the venue is, just keep these things in mind if you are thinking of booking Harding.

    Harding Waterfront Estate's reply:

    Thank you so much for your feedback! I wanted to let you know that we, (Pegasus Hospitality Group) have recently taken over the operations and catering at Harding Estate. Hopefully you get to come back one day soon and experience what we have to offer.
