“We had a fantastic experience planning our wedding at The Great Hall at Fort Henry in Kingston, Ontario. We worked
directly with a talented coordinator who went above and beyond to make our wedding day run smoothly. The venue space is
absolutely stunning and was very comfortable for our 100 guests. Having the ceremony on the patio was like a dream with the beautiful views of Fort Henry Hill and Lake Ontario. We highly recommend this venue space for your event!” - Matthew & Sarah, 2019
"The Great Hall at Fort Henry truly is a hidden gem. From the beauty of the venue itself and its location on the water beside historical Fort Henry, to the helpful staff, this was the perfect venue for our wedding. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone. We dealt primarily with Krysten and Heather, who were both very helpful throughout the whole process. From the first time we visited the venue, to promptly answering any questions we had throughout the year of planning, to Krysten’s coordination on the day of the wedding, the staff at Fort Henry is committed to helping their clients create a perfect day. All of the guests were raving to us about how beautiful the venue is. Everything went smoothly on the wedding day, and any issues that arose were dealt with quickly and professionally." - Heather & Joshua, 2019
"To start, we have no negative feedback. The venue itself is unique and one-of-a-kind. The picturesque scenery that surrounds the Great Hall is breathtaking and makes even non-professional photographs high quality. Our venue representative Heather was impressively effective. She was a professional in the the highest regard and helped navigate a stressful event with ease. She ensured the venue was open to outside agencies to come in and set up prior to the wedding. Heather is an extremely personable and approachable individual that made us feel comfortable to ask any questions we had prior to the wedding and gave us guidance and a clear view of what the wedding day would look like. Honestly, we cannot say enough positives about her. Bytown Catering provided a spectacular three-course meal. They were easy to work with. Our representative Cheryl was very accommodating. She helped us manage last-minute changes to the menu, provided alternatives for individuals with dietary restrictions, and answered any questions we had as we got closer to our wedding day. All in all a perfect day with high-quality services. We could not have asked for better. Thank you for all you did to make our day perfect." - Nick & Val, 2019
