Wedding vendor of our dream!
Ancaster Mill was such a dreamy place to host our big day! The entire event team, especially Megan who was our coordinator, was so helpful throughout the planning process. We had so many little requests and the team was nothing but understanding and accommodating throughout. Our Concierge, Tara, was one of the reason why the day went so smoothly! She took care of our needs and ensured that our families had a great time! From the dreamy waterfall backdrop to the delicious food and rustic reception room, Ancaster Mill exceeded our every expectation!Sent on 31/08/2019

We primarily worked with Rochelle who was amazing. She was on-top of responding to me in regards to booking appointments and questions. She was very detail oriented and very kind. She eased the process and made us feel like everything was going to run smoothly (which it did). All of our appointments went well and we really enjoyed our menu tasting. The staff was great and very aware of the dietary restrictions and accommodating! The day of was absolutely everything I could have dreamed of! The minute we got to Ancaster Mill, we were greeted by a parking tenant who gave us a ride to the round about where we were greeted by our concierge, Courtney who was absolutely amazing to work with! She was so helpful throughout the evening and she was running around getting drinks and making sure we had some appetizers from our cocktail hour waiting for us in the bridal suite for after our photos. The night was wonderful and it was because of everyone at Ancaster being so on top of everything! I would highly recommend them for a wedding!Sent on 18/08/2019

Ancaster Mill should always be in your venue visit list!!!
If I had to recommend a venue to anyone, Ancaster Mill will always be at the top of my list. It is an all-inclusive wedding resort where everything is in one place: ceremony (indoor or outdoor), cocktail (with beautiful scenery), dinner/lunch reception, FOOD, officiant. It saved us alot of work because we didn't have to find a separate officiant or a separate caterer.Sent on 01/01/2019
The venue: our wedding was 100 headcount including 10 vendors. For anyone that haven’t been to Ancaster Mill or on their website, I highly encourage you to make a trip (for their Sunday Champagne Brunch) or go to their website. The venue is in a beautiful neighbourhood of Ancaster (neighbouring Hamilton) with a waterfall right in the venue. The indoor chapel (which we used) is newly renovated with beautiful wooden beams and marble floors. There are various rooms available for different sized weddings. For our 100 people wedding, we used the indoor chapel for the ceremony, the Solarium (the small room by the bridge) for the cocktail hour, and the Governors room (2nd floor) for the lunch reception. They also have an outdoor garden space if you want an outdoor ceremony.
The food: if you know Ancaster Mill, you probably have heard about their famous Sunday Champagne Brunch. Ancaster Mill is known for their amazing food. What we found that was extra perfect is that each room had their own kitchen - this is how you know how important food is treated at Ancaster Mill. Because of this, guests are able to pick what they want for food right at the table (so there’s no need to ask your guests for food preferences before the wedding except if there are allergies) which saves a lot of work for the bride and groom.
The service: oh the service!!!! The entire process from the beginning to end was extremely organized, from the initial meeting to the final details meeting. Vicki, our event specialist from Ancaster Mill was extremely responsive, friendly and ORGANIZED and we knew we were in good hands the day we met her. On the day of the wedding, there were just so many amazing touches by Ancaster Mill including: apple cider for the guests before and after the ceremony, celebratory bubbles for the wedding party as we were coming out of the chapel, hor d’oeuvres served to bride and groom and the wedding party during photohour so we are not hungry, and an onsite maitre’d that drove the wedding party from the main hall to the chapel (only 1 min away but we got a nice rest in between), and a sweet card from Vicki left in the bridal suite :)
All in all, Ancaster Mill was one of the best vendors we dealt with. Everything from the actual location itself, the food, the service, the process, was above expectations. We would recommend Ancaster Mill with 200% confidence.
We cannot thank the staff and Vicki enough for running the day so so smoothly and perfect!
