    Best Venue + People

    This venue is not only absolutely stunning, but the people who work there are incredible. Not only will your day look beautiful, your experience will be amazing because everyone there goes above and beyond from answering the phones, responding to emails, consultations, accommodations, wait staff, concierge, Maître D etc. My concierge took care of everything before we got to the venue, she even helped button up my wedding dress, carried my dress train, dried wet flowers, secured boutonnières, delivered food and drinks, reassured us it was 'our day' and nothing else matters ... the list is endless. My husband and I had an unfortunate experience with one of our vendors and when we reached out the Ancaster Mill (just to let them know), they not only sympathized, but helped us remedy the situation. 11/10 would recommend if you want the perfect wedding and experience!

    Couldn't be happier

    The Ancaster Mill worked with us to make our wedding day truly special. We planned our wedding before COVID and made a number of pivots during the first wave and then into the second wave. The Mill kept us in the loop throughout and made our vision come to life. The venue was so beautiful--we loved the Solarium and Governor's Room--the food was delicious, and our guests commented on how pampered they felt throughout the day. The beautiful backdrop that the Old Mill provides made our wedding photos truly stunning.

    It was truly such a pleasure working with yourself and Drew. We were so, so happy to see your day come to fruition - and would love to see photos now that you've received them back!

    Thank you for sharing such an important celebration with us.

    All the best on this next chapter together!

    Perfect winter venue

    We were so thrilled with our venue choice for our winter wedding.
    Pearle Weddings are the best of the best when it comes to weddings. Their experience sets them above, and their consultants are absolutely amazing to work with.
    We had Megan as our consultant and she was the most enthusiastic person I think I’ve ever met. We loved our experience with her and would absolutely recommend working with her and with Pearle Weddings to anyone. We had a family member who was going to assist with some of the setup on the day of, but when she arrived the Mill staff had already done it and there was nothing left for her to have to do!
    The day of went so smoothly, our concierge was amazing and made sure we were taken care of every step of the way. Honestly, if anything went wrong on the wedding day we were completely unaware and I attribute that to the Mill staff taking care of everything.
    We also loved our officiant who was assigned as part of our package with the Mill, so would also recommend using their officiants.
