    Beautiful Rustic Venue

    Getting married in a rustic setting has always been a dream of ours, and our event coordinator, Claudia at Black Creek Pioneer Village (BCPV) by Peter and Pauls definitely fulfilled that dream!

    Booking with BCPV by Peter and Pauls was an ease, but after booking, our coordinator(s) were changed at least 3 times. However, upon meeting with Claudia during our final details meeting, she really rose to the occasion and put our worries at ease. Not only did she honour everything that was discussed from our initial booking, but she was always very responsive in addressing any of our concerns.

    Claudia, thank you for your attentiveness and responsiveness, we can’t thank you enough for your help and coordination throughout. You helped us put our worries to ease since we did not have a wedding planner and had planned everything on our own. Also, we appreciated your patience and cooperation with our family appointed day of coordinator.

    Black Creek Pioneer Village is a beautiful event space and we are so happy that we had booked it!
    Most people we talked to remember visiting this venue as a field trip and who would have thought such a place could also be the perfect wedding venue.

    The outdoor buildings provided a beautiful landscape for our wedding photos and really brought that old world charm. If you are looking for something unique and romantic, this venue is the place for you. Given that our wedding was in November, unfortunately, we were not able to have our wedding outdoors, but BCPV has many locations on-site to choose from.

    We had gotten married in the Fisherville Church, this venue is perfect as it was intimate for our 100 guests, everyone was able to fit in the pews. We had a 5:00 pm wedding in November so the sun did set earlier than the summer months and the candles on the chandelier had to be lit. We also had to bring in some lanterns and had DIY some mason jars with fairy lights for extra lighting. However, this also brought the perfect ambiance for our rustic wedding theme.

    As for the cocktail hour, this was in the Victoria Room located in the main building of BCPV in the basement. The room fit everyone nicely and we had a few cruiser tables for our guest to mingle. We also DIY a Photo Booth using a few Instax mini cameras, unlimited film refills and props purchased from Amazon.ca.

    Our reception took place in the Canada West Room which is next to the Victoria Room. The Canada West Room was perfect for our intimate wedding and held 11 tables (8-9 people per table) comfortably. The rustic theme of the room was perfect for our wedding, and we loved that decor was very minimal, mostly consisting of the flowers and lanterns brought over from our ceremony in the Fisherville Church.

    Overall everything went without a hitch and we are super happy with our choice. We would definitely recommend Black Creek Pioneer Village by Peter and Pauls for any social or corporate event.

    Lovely wedding location!

    We LOVED our wedding at Black Creek Pioneer Village! We got married on the Town Hall Green and had our reception at the Pavilion. It's really a beautiful spot. Service was great and the food got amazing reviews (I only had a few bites of everything, but I guess that's how it goes :)). I did manage to eat most of my pesto pasta course which was to die for!

    We did have some issues leading up to the day when our coordinator switched a number of times leading to some frustration and consistency issues. In the end, Cathy and her colleague Colin pulled off everything perfectly. At the end of the night, Colin came by with packed lunches for Rick and I which was such a nice touch and clutch since we were starving by the time we got back to the hotel.

    Overall, we were really happy with everything :) Pictures turned out so nice as well!

    Rocky start - beautiful day of

    We had our ceremony at the Town Hall outside and the reception in the pavilion. We really loved the outdoor vibe that the venue had to offer and my husbands family has family ties to some of buildings in the village so it was a no brainer when selecting our venue. When we first reached out to have a tour of the space we were told to visit during the visiting hours and buy an admission tickets... we did and the next day told them we wanted to book it as a venue. It started off really great with the co-ordinator (who was new). About 4 months before the wedding we were informed that she was leaving for another job and got connected to another person from Black Creek who didn't specialize in wedding events, she was on the sales side. This is when it started going downhill. All of a sudden things that had been agreed upon with the first women weren't true or they cost WAY more (the price went from $150 to $800 for something). They missed the scheduled meeting 28 days before the wedding to finalize all the details. I started feeling very un-easy at this point because they still didn't have a day of contact for all of my vendors - and they never did - the day before the wedding I was still asking and they still couldn't tell me.
    I will say that in the end the day of the wedding was perfect and things ran smoothly. There was just an unnecessary amount of stress before the wedding and we really felt like we weren't valued clients.

    Dream Venue

    We couldn’t be happier about our wedding at BCPV!!! The venue was stunning—rustic and country was our theme and it was perfect. The staff from day one was amazing. Julie Ann, our coordinator, was amazing. We absolutely adored her. On the day of the BCPV staff were on point!!! Rosa especially, she rocked the kitchen and made sure all our guests were happy. We’re all still talking about our love for Rosa!!

    Thank you Black Creek! You rock!!

    We had a perfect wedding

    Amazing outside area and backdrop for pictures! We had the ceremony on the grass in front of the town hall and the dinner in th pavillon. Open bar and delicious food. Since everything came with the venue it made our life easy. They can even rent some decor element of you so desire.
    Very decently priced for Toronto.

    Fantastic Experience

    Very professional - they were willing to accommodate virtually all of our requests, given that this was a Covid wedding. The venue was wonderful the food was excellent. The staff is very knowledgeable and supper friendly . Given all the restrictions during Covid all the plans came together and the wedding was spectacular.

    Beautiful venue, less than beautiful service

    While our wedding this past August was a success thanks so a sunny day and a beautiful venue, I was disappointed overall with my experience with the vendor. Communication was extremely frustrating leading up to the date, we were routinely misinformed on what they could make happen for us. For instance, we learned 48 hours before the wedding that a system we'd agreed on for using our own plates would not work (we eventually came to a compromise), and that guests would need to be masked if they wanted to dance. While I completely appreciate things were challenging with COVID, I'd have to wait as long as 2 weeks for a response from them in the weeks leading up to our day which I feel shouldn't be their service standard. On the day itself, on staff member was quite rude with my parents when we were faced with some logistical problems (the microphone did not reach the podium). I was told myself and my bridal party would be set up in a suite in the minutes before the ceremony, instead we were forgotten and left to stand dehydrated in the heat behind a shed while guests arrived. I would definitely say the food was disappointing overall. The 'sparkling toast' is less than an ounce of the cheapest sparkling wine on the market poured 30 minutes before anyone sits down so it's warm and disgusting. Further, they mixed up our order on appetizers (which ended up being covered in insects and quite unappetizing since they were left out on the tables for awhile), and served salad without any dressing or cheese (and gave nuts to some guests with allergies). Dinner service ended up being an hour behind schedule meaning our band had to play longer and no one ended up eating their dessert. Guests were also told not to stand on the gravel walkway with their drinks resulting in crowding under the pavillion, we were told folks would be free to walk around the green. The fire we paid for was supposed to be set up with benches, but those didn't come either and as a result no one visited it. Finally, we were never warned that if we did not mic up our ceremony nobody would hear our vows, so nobody heard our vows. I have been trying to contact the venue for almost a month now share these perspectives and have not had my call returned, so have decided to share them here.

    Black Creek Pioneer Village's reply:

    Thank you for taking the time to address your recent experience at our venue.

    We value your feedback, as it is with comments such as yours that we may continue to grow and service our patrons in the manner they have become accustomed to at our location.
    Our staff email addresses and phone numbers have not changed since you were in contact with them prior to your wedding date so we encourage you to reach out to our team directly to address your comments.

    Thank you once again for your feedback and we look forward to speaking with you in the near future.

    Many thanks and best wishes,

    Amazing Fall Wedding

    We can't say enough about the staff at Black Creek Pioneer Village and Kortright event space!! Both teams worked so hard to make our wedding day possible. The day of was truly beautiful and we did not have to worry about a thing. The staff went above and beyond to cater to all of guests. They were professional and friendly at all times. Due to the pandemic, we had a small micro wedding which was supposed to take place at Black Creek Pioneer Village but due to restrictions got changed the week of to Kortright event space. Cathy and her team did an amazing job with coming up with the idea to change venues and planning everything within a couple of days to make our wedding day possible. We cannot thank her enough! She was always professional and available to help or answer our questions promptly. The food was also all amazing!! Thank you for making our wedding day possible!! We highly recommend Peter and Paul and both teams at Black Creek and Kortright. They are amazing!
