    A Dad’s Perspective - A Terrific Wedding Venue

    This is a review of a remarkable wedding venue here in southern Ontario, posted with the enthusiastic concurrence of the Bride and Bride. Our daughter's, and daughter-in-law's, wedding was a spectacular success a few weeks ago and as a Dad of once of the two gorgeous brides that exchanged their vows at Cambridge Mill, I can say that collectively we, our guests, and our families, were very impressed with the level of service, attention and finesse that was given to our wedding event, and we wanted to share our experience.

    Cassie and Carly’s wedding was of a smaller size - about 65 people and the selected rooms at the Mill for the day were perfectly sized for an intimate setting. The Cambridge Mill facilities are incredible. It began with the suites and staging areas before the wedding, continued to the truly jaw-dropping ceremony space overlooking the river, then on to the promenade to the garden-suite cocktail room, and finally to the intimate and perfectly-sized reception space. Every nook and cranny of the exterior and interior spaces is clean, inviting, well appointed and exudes charm and warmth. The obvious care and attention given to the venue, and its unique location, has resulted in what is one of the most impressive wedding venues in Ontario. We were all gobsmacked by the unique character and lovely atmosphere of the Mill. And to top it all off the sun emerged precisely as the wedding began on an otherwise gloomy weather day. We joked that Cambridge Mill, with its uber-attention to detail, even managed to “Cue the Glorious Sunshine” so that it appeared just as the wedding began, and continued for every perfect photo thereafter.

    The staff were phenomenal. Danielle, Courtney and Phillip, as they managed, orchestrated and supervised the entirety of the event were amazing. The deft and efficient manner of the team was truly flawless and it was the unanimous opinion of a few long-time service industry professionals in our midst, and all of our guests, that the level of service, attention to detail and organizational control could not have been any better. As I stood by my daughter Carly, and we awaited our walk and entrance to the ceremony, I was truly impressed with the behind-the-scenes military precision and obviously well-established procedures that the Mill has clearly worked very hard to create for the pre-ceremony arrangements. So too, the perfect orchestration of the wedding party and guest arrivals to the wedding venue. What was impressive was the way that the Mill’s people-management and organizational timing effortlessly transitioned to an outward display of graceful guidance, a soft and gentle touch and genuine support for Carly and Cassie, and the attendants, family and guests, before, during and after the ceremony. Philip, Courtney, Danielle, and all of the staff, simply rocked. The attention to detail was astounding as the staff seemed, at just the right moment, to provide what was needed to make the ceremony special, and perfect.

    This attention transitioned seamlessly to the cocktail hour as the servers and bar staff provided a level of service that was flawless, and which continued through the entirety of the evening. It was only afterwards, when we looked back, that we collectively compared notes and commented on how: each and every one of the servers were exceptional; that the bartender was awesome; that the food was presented with precision and care; how tables were cleared effortlessly; and the event space maintained, controlled and organized without interruption around the ebb and flow of the dinner, speeches, dancing and entertainment. Courtney and Danielle were there every step of the way throughout the entire evening right until the last of the family found a ride back to the hotel. We truly appreciated the manner in which the staff of Cambridge Mill were able to do all of this, in perfect synchronicity with our families' self-absorbed focus on our wedding event, and the wacky craziness (including the unexpected visit of a faux drag queen) usually seen when all our families and friends converge.

    Over three weeks have passed and everyone is still raving about the food that evening, and a loud, genuine and exuberant thanks and kudos goes out to the chef and kitchen staff. The quantity and quality of the hor dourves during the cocktail blew everyone away. Personally - the cream of cauliflower soup at dinner, and in particular the superbly arranged and selected garnishes, in my view, was of a calibre that we’ve usually enjoyed only at the best of restaurants through our 40 years of travel and dining. As for the Mains - without exception everyone raved at the quality and quantity of the meat, the perfectly-done vegetables, the plating and presentation, all of it served up hot and with flair. The deconstructed mascarpone cheesecake with mango and strawberry - also incredible. Nowadays the expectations for wedding venue meals are sometimes low as the standards can be unfortunately unpredictable. In this case, the food and beverages at Cambridge Mill that evening far far exceeded the norm, and was truly most-excellent. The many foodies amongst our gang were very impressed.

    And finally - it seems tacky to talk dollars but we thought, after it was over, that the cost was extremely reasonable for the quality and exceptional service that was delivered. We all converged from out of town, and enjoyed a worry-free day with everything taken care of, from beginning to end. Every penny was well spent.

    At the heart of it all, the wedding was, as it should have been, about the two brides,Carly and Cassie, and their long-overdue “Big Day”. As a Dad of one of those brides, the Cambridge Mill staff made MY day because they made THEIR day a special one. Although this special wedding was just one of many at Cambridge Mill, it will nevertheless remain singularly memorable for all of us because the staff of Cambridge Mill provided services in a seemingly effortless way that made our daughters’ wedding a personalized, exceptional, and truly spectacular event for all of the family and friends in attendance. Cheers!!

    Absolutely First Class Experience

    It all started with Lyndsay and her guidance, thoughtfulness and helpfulness with planning the wedding. From helping us pick and finalize a date based on the best time for what we wanted to do to finalizing everything and coordinating everything up to the final days and doing so in an extremely courteous and timely manner throughout.

    All of the service we received from the staff was incredible and Monica was especially awesome. She helped us with everything from coordinating and balancing what needed to be done throughout to ensuring we had everything we needed at any given time and she never once gave the impression she was tired or disinterested. She went above and beyond and her and the staff just made a very complicated event so much simpler than we imagined it could be.

    The venue itself is absolutely stunning and the food was better than many of the fine dining establishments we've attended and was a highlight for everybody.

    The price was also amazing considering just how much you get. I can't say enough good things about the venue and the staff.

    We absolutely loved the experience and the day was so enjoyable because Lyndsay, Monica and the staff took all of the stress out of it.

    Thank you from the bottom of both of our hearts!


    Chris and Steph

    Best Venue Ever!

    Don’t walk, RUN to book this venue for your wedding right now!

    Located in the heart of downtown galt in Cambridge, this stunning venue has endless photo opportunities. The food - unbelievably delicious, and even better was the service!

    Amie, our consultant, was so helpful and responsive during the planning process. She helped me plan the perfect day, relieving so much stress by keeping me organized.

    I met Philip, the event manager, at the tasting, which was such a great experience. He worked so hard to make sure my day went perfect, and every time I saw him he put a smile on my face with his energetic personality (and great style!!!!).

    The servers were so kind - I had many of my guests compliment their service to me after the wedding.

    My concierges, Evan and Danielle, were professional, attentive, hard working and kind, and I cannot thank them enough. Evan greeted me upon my arrival and walked me to our vehicle at the end of the night. He was right by my side throughout the day, ensuring that anything I needed was taken care of - he truly treated me like a princess!! We had a medical emergency with one of our guests and Evan responded so calmly and quickly, I was so impressed.

    I promise you that you will not be disappointed with Cambridge Mill - they make all your wedding dreams come true!

    Dream Come True!

    The Cambridge Mill and all of their staff are absolutely top tier! We had originally planned our wedding for February 2021 but due to covid it was moved to February 2022. We still ended up getting married on our original date but we held off on the big ceremony and reception. The Mill was super accommodating and understanding and they were so helpful every step of the way. We unfortunately had to postpone again due to covid regulations, but we were lucky enough to have one date available April 2022. Fortunately everything was open and all of the regulations were gone for our April date and we were able to have the most amazing celebration. I personally didn't feel super organized due to the constant changes, but the Mill staff was so professional and organized and the day could not have gone better. They made all my worries disappear!! Honestly the best day ever, I want to relive it over and over again!

    Amazing Wedding Experience!

    The Cambridge Mill hosted our wedding and it was an amazing experience! Leading up to the wedding, our consultant Lyndsay was happy to answer any and all of our questions and she was very organized and kept on top of things to make sure we were on track. On the day of the wedding, everything ran smoothly and the concierge and maitre d’ who were assigned to us (Monica and Marie-Claude) were so incredibly welcoming and helpful. The food was AMAZING, so many of our guests came up to us afterwards to tell us how delicious everything was. We are so happy we had our wedding at the Cambridge Mill!

    We got married on December 31st, and the Cambridge Mill was so instrumental in making our day one we will remember forever!

We would HIGHLY recommend the Cambridge Mill for your wedding! Oh, and the food is to die for!

    Simply the best !

    We chose to get married at Cambridge Mill and absolutely loved the experience. The planning was flawless as the Mill makes sure they get every detail to make sure everything goes off without a hitch, which i'm sure was especially difficult during Covid. We felt really comfortable coming up to the wedding day because of this. The day of the wedding, they had everything planned to the minute and were extremely well organized, with multiple staff ensuring the schedule was followed. They also had two people following me around making sure I had everything I needed so I wouldn't have to worry about anything (I called them my fairy godmothers), which was icing on the cake. The ceremony and reception spaces are all beautiful - seriously breathtaking, and the food was amazing! We would highly recommend this venue as our wedding experience was perfect. We feel like we got a bargain for what we got on the wedding day.

    Breathtaking.

    Honestly. My wedding was so perfect, I am sad it’s over. 2.5 years ago, if you asked me how my wedding planning was going, I would have cried. I wouldn’t have ever thought that my wedding could have been so incredible.
    Through every hiccup, every question, every time of uncertainty, Lyndsay and the team at the mill guided me along the way.

    They were so accommodating, up until the last day when I had to add some toddlers to the wedding. No questions asked, it was taken care of.

    The day of my wedding, I have an absolutely FABULOUS team working with me, who went above and beyond any expectations I could have had. One of the girls spent her day in the cold carrying a blanket to keep ME warm because I forgot my shall. The same woman went out of her way to show me that I finally got snow on my wedding day. They calmed my nerves, took care of my guests. I could go on.

    Not only was the venue stunning, and the team fabulous but the food. OH MY GOD. The food. We had a big Italian family at our wedding (My husband is grandson to a LONGO so the CEO of Longo’s was actually in attendance) and they all raved about the food and said how much they loved the pasta. Davids Nonna even said how good it was- and she usually only eats her own homemade sauce.

    I will tell any bride I ever speak to, to have a pearl wedding- we could not be more grateful to the team there for making our happily ever after come true.

    Thank you

    Cambridge Mill's reply:

    Good Afternoon,

    Congratulations on your amazing wedding!

    On behalf of the team at Cambridge Mill, we thank you again for choosing us to be part of your special day.

    We truly hope that the day was everything you both hoped for, and more!

    It was a pleasure to work with you both and to watch the wedding come together this weekend. We would love to see pictures when you get them!

    We wish you all the very best in your life together.

    Warm Regards,

    Cambridge Mill Team
