With 6,000 square feet of space to make use of, it is certainly large enough for many get-togethers. For the magical ceremony, the couples and guests can gather at the outdoor patio and awning to say “I do”, Here, against a backdrop of the manicured green lawn, the wedding party can share the moment as the happy pair become newlyweds at last. Chairs can easily be arranged for guests, while flowers can add color and charm to the setting. Afterward, in a nearby overgrown field, the newlyweds may indulge in couple portraits. Day or night, this space is appropriate for milestone occasions, especially when the wedding party has sparklers to wave in jubilation. As the day progresses, everyone can make their way to enjoy the cocktail hour as the anticipation for the reception meal builds.

From the outside, the Banquet Hall’s inviting oversized portico offers a welcoming entrance. Inside, banquet tables may be arranged so that 300 people can savour a meal in comfort. The decor is defined by minimalist touches, modern light fixtures, and polished flooring. Uplighting adds extra ambience, while the apex ceiling lends an airy feel. A bar area is also available where bartenders can serve drinks.

    Lovely Venue

    Century is a very unique venue which is why my husband and I decided to get married here! The venue is very well maintained and the way the space is designed allows larger weddings to still feel more intimate and personal. The coordinators (Jessica and Valarie) were very kind and professional throughout the entire planning process. They were extremely patient when dealing with my parents (they can be difficult customers at times), which was greatly appreciated. The food is definitely fresh and high quality here; however, I would say that the portions could be slightly larger. As for pricing, Century's rates are competitive and fair when comparing with other venues in Ottawa. I felt like Century had a lot more rules than the average venue, but I noticed that they started to abolish some of these rigid policies over the last year. Overall, I had an amazing wedding day and my guests were very impressed with everything. We actually had a power outage during the reception due to awful weather, but the staff at Century dealt with this situation very efficiently and effectively. I'm sure the staff were very stressed in the moment, but I want to thank them for resolving the issue in such a timely manner. To be honest, the majority of my guests did not even notice the power going out! Thanks again to everyone and I am sad it's all over!

    Century Weddings & Events's reply:

    Dear Angelika,
    Thank you so very much for your feedback of Century Weddings and Events! It has been a pleasure to work along side of you, and your family! The power outage we experienced certainly was a stressful situation, but we are very happy to hear that many of your guests were unaware and could continue to enjoy the day.
    Best wishes to you and your husband in your wonderful marriage!

    The best day ever!

    My Husband and I got married at Century almost a year ago now, and we still think about our special day on the regular. It was a last minute booking so we thought it would be extremely stressful, but it was far from it. They had all the vendors lined up and ready for us within the week of booking! We went with the all inclusive option and that was the best decision ever! Thank you for making our day the best!

    Century Weddings & Events's reply:

    A wedding we could also never forget! We hope your first year married was the best year yet! Cheers to you both!

    A great wedding experience

    Century was really great to work with. The facility was beautiful on the day of. I love the lighting they have on sight, it really took the space to the next level. I also loved the outdoor ceremony space. We had around 130 guests and it fit perfectly. Thanks for helping me make our day perfect.

    Sarah!! Thank you so much for your kind words. It was an absolute pleasure to be apart of your special day! All the best with your new chapter.

    A nightmare

    We booked this space in early 2020, and just completed our wedding with them. Be warned, they have more than one coordinator and their primary coordinator is a nightmare. From a lack of professionalism in emails, to missing multiple appointments at the venue then forcing us to reschedule at a time convenient for them, to being extremely passive aggressive, rude, and immature.

    Venue building is very beautiful, food was very good, servers were polite and professional. Coordinator and contact with the venue were disastrous.

    A true disaster from the beginning, we offered 4 attempts to communicate with a manager, and our “coordinator” did not oblige, now that our wedding is over, we have now been contacted by a manager and alternative coordinator. Two years too late, and dozens of breakdowns too late. We were forced to hire an outside wedding planner, she was also shocked and appalled by STs behaviour.

    Be very cautious with this venue, mindful of solicited “genuine” reviews, and if your coordinators initials are ST, run for the hills.

    Great Experience

    Jessica was so great to work with, and so responsive! Everything was pretty seamless and looked beautiful. Everyone we worked with, including the servers on the day of, were beyond kind and helpful. Our pictures on the grounds turned out beautiful! The only aspect I was unhappy with was the lack of wine being poured (so I heard) after we paid for unlimited wine at the table, and the time it took to start pouring once everyone sat down. I believe they need more servers to make this a valuable option as many guests apparently received as much wine as they would have if two bottles were just left at the table. Despite this, I still consider it a five star venue for the experience as a whole!

    Century Weddings & Events's reply:

    Kaitlin, Thank you very much for your review. It was a pleasure to work with you this past year! I truly am sorry to hear about the wine service you experienced, but the feedback does help us greatly to improve! Kindest regards and best wishes to you and your new husband!
