    Literal Fairy Godmothers

    The special events team was so accommodating and personable with every question and covid related anxiety we had. They made our day seamless and absolutely wonderful, to the point of perfection. I can’t recommend them enough!

    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.

    Stunning location and service

    This venue is absolutely stunning when it comes to location and service. You will never regret having your wedding here, the staff is exceptionally organized and makes sure that every detail goes as planned. The food is also incredible, several of our guests came up to us after the meal and said that it was incredible!
    The chapel was also beautiful and just made it the wedding of my dreams. Don't hesitate to book this place you won't regret it.

    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!
