    Astounding venue. Please read


    My husband and I had our wedding ceremony in the Ascott Parc Gardens on September 20, 2019 and it was the most magical day we could imagine. Everything was set up to perfect, the Ascott Parc staff worked excellently with our vendors and the hors d’oeuvres were delicious. They came out on time and all our guests were so impressed.

    THEN we had the most AMAZING reception in the Trillium Banquet hall at Ascott Parc. The dinner was exquisite, staff was incredible; always checking in to see if we were ok and if we needed anything. Hall- SPOTLESS. SPACIOUS. GORGEOUS. The amounts of compliments we have been getting on the venue choice is overwhelming.

    If you are looking for a perfect wedding, please look no further. Ascott Parc is the place to go.

    A special thank you to Jay Goolab and Zachary Halpern for all their help, patience and dedication to help us execute the most perfect wedding day. Jay, thank you for everything. We didn’t bat and eye, no stress what so ever. EVERYTHING was covered. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU.

    Ascott Parc

    The food was incredible, the braised beef ribs fell off the bone. There was no shortage of food that’s for sure. For those with food allergies, the chefs are able to accommodate them.
    The gazebo outside was beautiful, there is a waterfall in the back, very breathtaking.

    Beautiful venue, great for an outside wedding ceremony and indoor reception.

    The wedding venue is beautiful, if you are planning to have a wedding in the spring and you'd like to have your ceremony outside, it is certainly nice complete with a gazebo. If you are having a ceremony outside, also note unlike some other venues, you will be charged per chair.

    We had our reception in the upstairs largest ballroom, Imperial. This room can fit up to 300 guests, just know that if you want this ballroom, you are paying for 300 guests regardless of the no. for your actual guests. The bridal suite is also small without windows, something to factor in if you want getting ready photos (as a result, we opt for hotel getting ready photos).

    The day of our wedding most things went smoothly, that being said, that is because we had our OWN backup day-of-coordinator, who ensured everyone knew where they were going, on time, paid our vendors and directed them where to go. Ascott Parc while they provide a coordinator, their coordinator, only confirms the time with your vendors as to when they are arriving, they do not ensure the timeline runs smoothly/promptly or provides direction for vendors, ushers guests, etc.. So we would highly advise you hire your own day-of-coordinator or wedding planner to look over all the details.

    Our rehearsal time and date was also only confirmed the week of - something to be mindful of. As is our ability to set up our venue the day before our wedding. The sales rep we dealt with while responsive, this venue is quite hands-off compared to other venues we have been to, weddings we have attended (we have attended well over 10+ across the GTA in recent years).

    I cannot speak to the food as we had an outside caterer that we brought in who had their own wait staff/servers. We did however, of course, had bar services, we went with their Premium Bar Service, at the signing of the contract, we were asked what our liquor choice was. We specifically said whiskey, no matter - less than two hours of the bar being open, bartenders were informing our guests that there was no more whiskey, we had quite a few unhappy family members, who just joined our reception at that time inform us of this. (Not everyone was at our ceremony). So it is open bar, but perhaps not count on a continuous supply of a wide range of liquor there (we have never had this happen in any other wedding we attended or venue and we have been to weddings upwards of 400 guests - we had 250).

    Also just before our ceremony, I, the bride had guests coming up to me and people we delegated as ushers, asking why the venue was locked. I had to walk from upstairs of the gazebo, to find Tasneem to insist that she unlock the door, which she insisted they were unlocked only they weren't. My friend showed her as such after which, she got someone to unlock it. For guests that needed to go to the restroom and having guests see me before I walked down the aisle, that was less than ideal. (While I understand oversights and mistakes can happen, and alas it did).

    Throughout our reception, we also had points when the lights were for whatever reason turned off and we had to physically direct a guest or a friend of ours attending the wedding to turn back up the lights. (Not sure why that was - as we know the catering staff did not do that). That impacted some of the videography and photos.

    I think it is important to remember that sometimes a sales rep. is precisely that, they are sale-oriented. Our interactions with the venue and the individuals there while civil, but it was more of a business-transaction than anything else. Without going into details, we did not feel like the venue went out of their way to ensure that us as customers were happy or that everything leading up to the day went smoothly, there were quite a few stressful interactions and we were often told to wait till just days before - on the week of i.e. for setting up, for rehearsal, our ceremony time and setup, etc.. Of all the vendors we did deal with throughout our wedding from florist to the decor to our DJ or photographer, we can unfortunately say our interactions and experience with Ascott Parc was the one that was not only most stressful but also least pleasant.

    Many brides and grooms who have booked this venue did contact us asking for our take away and what our thoughts were through Facebook bridal groups and as a result, we decide to post advice here as some of them found it useful. Otherwise wish they knew. Everyone should have a memorable wedding day, that being said, sometimes it means setting realistic expectations vs. finding out after you signed the contract or on the day of. Lastly this is a given but always read your contract thoroughly and ensure that ANYTHING said verbally promised or otherwise is written down and initialled.

    Beautiful venue, great staff and very helpful during our wedding planning

    Ascott Parc was accommodating, and both families really loved the venue. Food was AMAZING along with our late night stations. Even though planning a wedding is stressful Ascott Parc was always there to help us! Would recommend to anyone!

    Amazing Experience

    We choose Ascott Parc for our outdoor ceremony and reception for our July 5, 2019 wedding. From the beginning we were assured that we would have a pleasurable experience. Jay and his team truly ensure that your needs are being met throughout the whole process. He was easy to communicate with, professional and worked very well with my other vendors. The staff were first class. My family and friends have commented on how professional and warm the servers and bartenders were. THE FOOD was superb. We infused our culture and the chef did not disappoint. It was served hot and plated very well. You will have an elite experience choosing Ascot Parc as your wedding venue. It was truly a beautiful day. The grounds are gorgeous, the hall is modern and the team is great to work with. Thank you Jay for ensuring that we had a stress free experience. I would recommend Ascot to any future bride.

    The best venue and service ever experience.

    We got married on October 13th, 2018 at Ascott Parc Event Centre. The level of professionalism and service given was very great, it was above expectation. Our guest love everything about this place. The servers was very well educated and know exactly how to treat their customers. The food, especially the jerk chicken, it was well done. Overall the service, food and the event manager Tasneem, she did a great job. The hall was brightly lit, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this venue . I will definitely go back there for my husband 50th birthday next year if TASNEEM is still there. Thanks for making my wedding day a very memorable one.

    June 18 2022 wedding

    Ascott Parc is very deceiving from the outside however it is absolutely beautiful on the inside. The staff was fantastic. We changed our date in 2020 due to COVID and accommodated our for 2022. The food was fantastic we got so many compliments. The gardens is everything we were looking for.

    There was only one thing we did agree to in our contract which was not done was the premium bar our guests did receive this. Other than this I would recommend Ascott Parc if your looking for an outdoor ceremony along with a banquet hall.

    For Such A Great Venue, It's A Shame To See An Arrogant Owner Owns It.

    I wanted to take this moment and provide a review on behalf of a family member of mine who recently got married here. I'd like to start off by saying, for a venue that is this stunning, the management and/or the owner is absolutely disgusting. One of my cousins decided to proceed with their event in the midst of Covid-19 and personally being a soon to be bride myself, I would only imagine vendors and venues would be such compassionate during these times. A few weeks prior to the event happening, my cousin and her fiancé decided to reach out to Melanie in regards to their event to make some changes to the contract due to government restrictions. They were advised to speak with a gentleman named Ash (who is the owner of Ascott Parc, is my understanding) in regards to this situation. Ash is an extremely arrogant individual who is full of himself and belittles his clients like chump change. It's not easy for young couples to splurge $15,000 - $25,000 but couples do it because it's their once in the life time opportunity to get married. But Ash is a special breed of human being. When my cousin and her fiancé connected with Ash and simply asked how they could go about cancelling their event due to Covid-19, he wasn't even close to sympathetic to them. His first response was "Oh, you can't do that. If you want to cancel, you'll have to pay for the whole event or I'll take you to court." When they had shared this news with the family (us), I was shocked. After discussing with the family, they tried to reach out to Ash to rectify this situation and come to terms that they would proceed with Ascott Parc but abide by Government regulations. Even then, he simply showed no interest as he would be losing revenue overall, he basically suggested them to push off their event to the following year when things clear up with Covid-19 (I mean who does this or says this to a couple). I couldn’t believe what I was hearing and seeing what the couple was going through. After a number of tries of attempting, they finally got Ash to agree with the Covid-19 government regulations and provide them with an amended contract. Days later they compared their contracts with another family member of ours from last year and realized that the pricing that was provided were absurdly higher and unreasonable (numbers were just placed randomly that made no sense for the service being provided). At that point, they just gave up and called it a day and wanted their event to be over with. I felt so bad for them which made me want to provide this review and let future clients and couples who are getting married or thinking of getting married at this venue to re-think and ask yourself “if this is the type of experience you want to go through prior to your big day.” Ash, you a despicable human being and should not be in the hospitality industry. If this business were to fail, I’m sure it would be because of your failure to understand what couples deserve and how they should be treated.

    On a positive note, my cousin and her fiancé were connected with a representative that works there who took care of the logistics. The way how he treated them was a day and night difference. If you are considering to proceed with this venue, go see Jay from Ascott Parc if you want to somewhat experience a headache free experience (I can’t promise that Ash won’t get in the way, but if he does, just ignore his ignorant ass and what he has to say and focus on your event).

    Ps. Ash, please do not attempt to reply back to this review and try to contact me as you have for some of the previous reviews. Clearly the way how you’ve replied to those reviews show the character you are.

    Beautiful venue!

    My partner and I had our outdoor wedding ceremony on the grounds of Ascott Parc as well as our reception in the Imperial room on August 2019 and we are very happy with the venue. Jay was the manager that oversaw our day and he did an amazing job taking care of the details and worked well with all of our vendors to create a smooth evening that everyone enjoyed. Both the outdoor ceremony and reception were clean and well maintained, and he was very accommodating when it came to setup of indoors tables and décor. We would gladly recommend this facility and use them again for future events!
