    Absolutely wonderful

    Pietro was flexible, understanding, and did everything he could to make our day special and accommodate our vision. He could because he owns the place which is handy. He's hospitable and easy going. The property is beautiful! Whether you get married inside or outside it'll be stunning! You can have all your wedding at this venue including the rehearsal dinner should you choose or you could do part of it there but make life easy and spend your day there. Spring for the cottage as well ladies! It's perfect for you and your ladies to get ready and for a quiet place for you and your new groom to grab a second after photos before the dinner. If you do just bring some extra lighting. It's close to downtown kemptville as well so your guests will have somewhere to go in between if they choose. Wouldn't have more than 130 guests here. I can't remember how much we spent but it was very affordable! A better deal than most venues we looked at!

    Recommendable venue for a wedding

    Staff were really cooperative, and the venue was really amazing. My wedding turned out the way I wanted it to be. The venue works really well for an intimate wedding. The glass atrium was really nice at night.

    Exceeded expectations!!

    The staff, the presentation, the food and the price exceeded our expectations. The venue was intimate yet spacious and beautifully decorated. The staff and food was amazing... we have had nothing but compliments on how delicious the food was and the plate presentation. I cannot say enough about how wonderful our wedding was and it had everything to do with The New Rideau! Excellent staff including the very talented and awesome chef Pietro! 10 Stars here!!
