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!

    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!
