    October 2021 wedding

    We got married October 2021 at Fort Gibraltar. I would highly recommend this venue to everyone. It’s so unique and beautiful, hardly any decor is needed. The food was amazing. One of the best wedding meals I’ve ever had. Our guests came to tell us through the evening how great it was. The late night poutine bar was a huge hit!
    Connie, Fort Gibraltar’s coordinator was fantastic to work with. She always responded quickly to all my emails. She was so helpful planning with the ever-changing covid restrictions. She also stayed late into the evening on our wedding day and kept coming up to my husband and myself to make sure everything was going well and to see if we needed anything. She was readily available the entire day of the wedding to answer any questions and made sure the day ran smoothly and stayed on track. I have nothing but great things to say about Connie and Fort Gibraltar. This venue was absolutely perfect!

    A Wonderful Venue and experience

    We couldn’t be happier with our event. The food, venue, interactions, results were wonderful and our guests were wowed. Connie, your personal interaction is so valuable to a business like this. You made sure our needs were met, made great suggestions and came through 100 percent.
    Thanks again for making our 50th Anniversary just perfect.

    My Dream Wedding

    This was our number one choice for our venue. My husband and I had an amazing experience at the Fort. It is a totally smooth operation and Angie is an absolute pro at what she does. We booked the DJ through them and used their decor recommendations. I would highly recommend it. The food was delicious and a good value. My dad paid the bar bill and his only comment was that the pice of soft drinks was a real killer. We would have been better off drinking more booze. No other complaints though.

    Romantic Wedding Venue

    When I found out Fort Gibraltar was a wedding venue I knew I would be married there, I hadn't even met my fiance yet...
    We loved the rustic, intimate and historic venue. It's a one stop shop, we did our pictures, outdoor ceremony and reception all in the same place. We even had axe throwing in between the ceremony and reception to keep our guests busy. We needed very little decor because the space itself is so beautiful. Hanging lanterns and string lights surround the guests while you ste flanked by a huge stone fireplace. It's the most wonderful feeling to be surrounded by all your closest friends and family in such a warm environment. And the food, so good! No one had anything bad to say about the food. One thing I would say is the bar line was a bit long and guests mentioned there was not 3 bar tenders which we had paid for. Overall a perfect venue for our favorite day.

    Beautiful venue

    Angie and staff did everything they could to ensure that our wedding went well. The food was AMAZING, staff were attentive & friendly. Angie was extremely helpful with the planning process suggesting things that we didn’t even think of! Connie was great with decor and the room looked beautiful. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding venue!

    Amazing venue, amazing food

    We loved every aspect of our wedding here. They helped with planning, were incredibly accommodating, offered excellent suggestions. Fast responses to all inquiries. The actual event went seamlessly. The food was AMAZING. We got so many compliments on it. We had a winter wedding and the room was cozy and lovely, lit by the fireplace and candles.

    Cannot Say Enough Good Things

    I cannot say enough good things about Fort Gibraltar ❤️
    The building and grounds are rustic and natural, yet elegant and charming. There are many options for event spaces, food, even linens. Shawn and Connie are wonderful communicators and Connie is amazing at helping you decorate and plan your day.
    Unfortunately a couple months into planning the COVID-19 pandemic hit. As provincial regulations changed, we had to adapt our wedding plans multiple times. Fort Gibraltar was always in communication, understanding, accommodating, and most importantly ensured provincial guidelines were followed to keep everyone safe. By fall, our plans had changed to just a simple ceremony with our parents and witnesses. The day of, The Great Hall was breathtaking. I fell in love with the lit stone fireplace with a mantle decorated with candles and greenery. I was so touched by Connie’s attention to detail. Connie stayed the whole time, helping and ensuring everyone was safe. Thank you, Connie, you ensured our little day became unforgettable and we couldn’t have done this without you. We are looking forward to celebrating with you again in 2022 for our reception!

    Fort Gibraltar's reply:

    We appreciate your kind words and thank you for choosing Fort Gibraltar for your wedding. Although things have changed so much this year we a glad you enjoyed your beautiful ceremony! We are very much looking forward to your reception in 2022.
