Wedding Venue

Highly recommended venue! One of the few reasons was because of their professional and kind staff, Ellen and Colin. From the moment we did the walkthrough up until the closing of the contract, Anvil team’s service was above and beyond. They were very experienced, responsive and helpful to us, their clients. The coordination was very smooth and we were truly happy with how our wedding reception was managed - a plus was a site security team maintaining a safe environment for our party. During the planning stage we had tons of questions and Anvil team was honest and recommended realistic solutions to our requests. They weren’t only doing their job to please clients but to ensure our plans work! We appreciated it.

As for the venue itself - it was a very modern, spacious, clean and bright location. Very convenient and accessible to the public transit and parking was also available. We loved the architectural design and the marble staircase offered a great photo op! They even extended the art gallery hours for our guests to check out while waiting for the event to start. The ballroom was a minimalist style and high tech lighting system - basically a blank canvass anyone can design as they desire. They provide the dancefloor, stage platform, bar, table chairs linens, cutleries etc. which simplified out planning process.

Overall, price was also fair and their package was pretty much complete. Just communicate your event needs and I’m sure Anvil can assist you with it!

We’re happy we celebrated our Wedding Day with Anvil Center as our venue!

Amazing Service & Amazing Everything

I booked Anvil centre for my wedding originally planned for 2020 but it got postponed due to Covid19 so I had my wedding in September 2021. Every email, every respones, every in-person meeting was so helpful. I am so happy with the service Anvil centre has provided for me on my big day. Ellen was super helpful with explaining expenses to me. Colin was the Event Manger and he was always on top of everything. He helped me plan a map of the place, table numbers, chairs, food, etc. His response times were lightning speed and he is so organized! It was such an amazing and friendly experience! My guests had a on of fun. The place is spacious and the location is great. I am so happy I had my wedding day here and I will refer my friends to book their event here as well!

Wedding venue at Anvil Center

I had my wedding ceremony and reception at Anvil center on August 31, 2019. The venue itself was beyond expectations with the beautiful natural light shining through the building. I knew it was my dream venue knowing how perfect the set up was and the full service that was provided. Truffle fine foods was the catering provided by Anvil center and the food was so delicious with our guests still talking about it after the wedding. From the initial contact of the tour of the facility to the day of the wedding, the event managers provided by the Anvil Center ensured all aspects of the wedding from the floor plan to the timing of each vendor were covered. The event manager, Cathy went above and beyond to meet the needs of the bride's requests, ensure the wedding went smoothly and even helped out with the rehearsal. The anvil center team was professional, reliable and adaptable and I can't imagine not having my special day at this location with the best team I could've asked for. I highly recommend any brides out there who is looking for a gorgeous venue with incredible staff and delicious food.
