About Palais Royale

Palais Royale is a mansion wedding venue located in Toronto, Ontario. This luxurious and resplendent venue boasts a potent blend of historic charm and contemporary glamour. Ideal for ceremonies and receptions, this venue could be the ideal place for you to say “I do” and begin your life as newlyweds. This lakeside property affords gorgeous views of nature while also exuding sophistication through its interiors.

Facilities and Capacity

Couples are free to officially tie the knot at Palais Royale's 4,000 square-foot courtyard patio. Boasting two tiers, it can host a total of 318 people. Affording everyone the chance to look out across Lake Ontario, it oozes a peaceful ambience for an iconic moment. When arranged with white chairs either side of a makeshift aisle, and decorated with blooming florals, it is fitting of the occasion. Alternatively, if the weather is not cooperating, the wedding party can assemble indoors to watch as the happy couple say their vows and swap rings. The to-be-weds can stand in front of a warm fireplace as their invitees take their places on the Chiavari-style chairs. Once the couple have been officially pronounced as married, the wedding party can drift towards one of the many function areas available. The Parlour can accommodate approximately 150 people for the cocktail reception, and it makes for a laid-back setting with its muted color scheme and lounge furniture. Of course, the Courtyard Patio can also be rearranged to host al fresco hors d’oeuvres or pre-meal drinks. Other event spaces to explore include the Green Room, Lower Lounge, and Red Room.

The Ballroom is where you and your guests can retreat to for a memorable dining experience. In terms of capacity, 350 people can enjoy a sit-down meal here when the dance floor is free, or 400 if the space is laid out fully with tables. For a stand-up reception, 880 can easily fit here. Tables and chairs can be set out for added comfort, while lounge furniture may also be supplied. A large and graceful space, it would be ideal for speeches and toasts to take place.

Services Offered

To assist the happy couple and ensure that their fairytale is brought to life accordingly, a planning service can be provided. Palais Royale's staff enjoy working closely with clients to foster an enjoyable event embellished by high-quality service. Culinary menus can easily be customized to suit distinctive preferences, while bartenders are more than happy to serve beer, wine, and Champagne.

History

Once upon a time, Palais Royale played host to many famous musicians. In fact, for almost 100 years, they invited such esteemed guests as Count Basie and Duke Ellington. Today, the venue is a location of choice for celebrations of romance and commitment.

    Stunning venue with exceptional service

    We received many comments from our guests that this was their wedding of the season. Palais Royale itself is stunning, but the above and beyond service from all day-of staff plus Dora, our venue manager and day-of coordinator, is top-notch. Many praises on the food, the views, the staff interaction with guests and the venue. We are so happy we chose Palais Royale as our wedding venue.

    Palais Royale was a Dream Come True

    I really can't say enough good stuff about Palais Royale. They made all our wedding dreams come true in a way only professionals can. At the center of all that was incredible was their amazing coordinator Jocilea who made everything SO easy and comfortable for us, we worked with her for over two years before our wedding day to make everything a dream come true. Right down to the day of, she was professional, warm, and just an overall wonderful person and I'd say we've actually become friends. This venue, which holds decades of history, has wedding science perfected. Every staff member was attentive and went out of their way to make our day perfect, including Chef Stefan who fed our guests what some described as the best wedding food they'd ever had. He even put aspects of our family's cultures into the dishes for a special touch. Katy and Mary who also work at the venue were wonderful as well, helping me calm my nerves the day of while running around to put everything in its place. I really could go on all day about what a fantastic group Palais Royale is. I am so so so glad we got to work with them for our wedding!

    Fairytale Wedding

    Our wedding at Palais Royale was absolute perfection. We still get compliments a year later.
    We held both our ceremony and reception at Palais Royale, and we are thankful that we did. Having the entire venue to ourselves made it feel more personal and intimate. It made it simple for our guests to arrive and enjoy the entire event worry-free.

    We had the pleasure of working with Robert as our wedding coordinator throughout the planning and our coordinator the day of the wedding. I can't express how much easier it was with him there on the day. My husband and I were both blown away that we kept to schedule and everything was perfect; no mishaps, no missed cues, no rushing. It allowed us to enjoy the day stress-free and live in the moment.

    A special thank you to Chef Steffan; the menu was impeccable, and our guests are still raving about the food and the beautiful presentation. When it came to picking a venue, food was our number one priority and Chef Steffan sat down with us and was very flexible in accommodating our requests.

    The entire staff was flexible and patient with our personal and cultural requests, and last-minute changes. We truly appreciate the staff constantly going the extra mile to give us our fairytale wedding!

    Amazing location , right by the water. With a great view of the Toronto skyline. The coordinators here are quick and timely. Dora was ours. She was pleasant, friendly and very helpful. At one point we didn't have a planner and she really stepped up to the plate! The staff was great and the food was incredible!!!! We're still getting compliments on the food in conversations! They really catered to all our menu wants and needs. We couldn't have picked a better, more affordable venue. It really transforms once decorated! The bridal suite was a great plus too!

    Venue , Event Coordinator, Catering , AV/Sound & Lights, All Day Bridal Suite etc.. all included! What more can you ask for. The just leaves a planner and decor for the big things!

    Palais Royale is a gorgeous venue to get married in. Our wedding day went off without a hitch. The Palais Royale staff was extremely professional and provided an incredible service. We've had countless compliments on our choice of venue. There is nothing negative to say about Palais Royale, it is fabulous.
