Stunning Venue, Incredible Staff

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect and beautiful wedding day at the Old Mill ~ from the incredible historic venue itself, to the delicious food, beautiful reception spaces and Chapel, and helpful and professional staff, our journey to the altar was a seamless and thoroughly enjoyable one for us and our guests. In particular, we had the pleasure of working with our wedding Officiant Rev. Mark Aitchison, our catering executive Rebecca Middleton, and hosts Luba L and Dimitri who were all so on top of things in the days leading up to the event and on the wedding day. I'm sure things can get chaotic behind the scenes, but they were professional, in control, and so incredibly kind and thoughtful. We appreciated their ability to stay on top of things and anticipate any hiccups along the way. Overall, we loved our experience and would recommend this venue to any couple looking for a professional and seamless experience.

Excellent event

My wife and I had our wedding reception at the Old Mill on Saturday, February 24th, 2024. Our initial visit and consultation was with Lotoya, who did a great job in taking us around to the different rooms and the venue. We initially booked the Victoria and Garret rooms, but as our guest list grew from 40 to over 50, we were shown larger rooms by Rebecca who took over our event. We ended up in the Westminster room, which was much more appropriate for our numbers.

We chose the Old Mill because of its reputation for events, and for the beautiful interior and exterior of the building. Also, the space is primarily an event space, away from other busy neighbourhoods. The location is also a big reason we choose the venue. I have friends who live in Mississauga and friends who live in Toronto, so it was in the middle. I also like that it鈥檚 right at Old Mill station on the TTC line, as many downtown guests could take advantage of this.

The planning and communication with Rebecca was very professional. She always responded to us in a timely fashion, and addressed all of our questions and concerns thoroughly.

The night of the event was close to perfect. I want to shout out to Dimitri, our banquet captain. He was very attentive, and always present. The bartender (we went with a host paid bar) Robert was also a superstar. He was very personable to us and all of our guests, extremely attentive, professional, and a great bartender overall. The wait staff was also extremely professional, personable, and the dinner service was flawless. The food was of high quality and very generous portions (we went with guests choosing their own entrees beforehand, so we chose their beef, chicken, veggie, or fish entrees). The OMT cake was very well made and beautiful. It was also very competitive in pricing to other bakeries nearby, so I don鈥檛 feel there is any need to go elsewhere since they make the cake on premises - one more thing to not worry about delivery-wise. The late night pizza we ordered was also very high quality, and our guests ate it all.

The only glitch I鈥檒l point out is that the Westminster鈥檚 house lights flickered once they were set to below half of full brightness. This made it impossible to turn the lights down enough to be inviting. We had to keep them bright to avoid the flickering. Dimitri noted that usually they are turned down during the cocktail hour to be more inviting, and when the table candles are lit. This was not possible without a very annoying flickering of the lights. In the end, it was not a huge problem, but would have been nice to have them lowered. During the dancing part, they were turned all the way down, and our DJ鈥檚 excellent lighting took over.

All things considered, I鈥檇 say the event was very well priced for what we got. We splurged for the host-paid bar, served dinner, each guest chose their own entree, host-paid coat check, and host-paid parking passes. The host-paid bar is paid up front by averaging the number of drinks per guest (I think it was seven drinks), and then adjusted after the event for actual consumption. Since many of our guests don鈥檛 drink, we got a pleasant surprise after the event in the form of a refund.

I would absolutely recommend the Old Mill as a venue for a wedding or similar evening event.

Perfectly amazing!

It is a One stop shop. You can have your ceremony, Couple and family pictures and reception in one place. It saves you time, money and guests are not confuse with timing and location. Our venue coordinator was easy to communicate with and very responsive. Their officiant gave us a wonderful ceremony and we could not ask for more.

When the wedding day was done, we got a refund of the actual guests count on the day of and drinks that we only consumed.

We highly recommend this place if you want to have an awesome wedding day馃憦馃憤

Above and Beyond!

We initially hesitated to book a venue that looked so traditional, but Rebecca was responsive, professional, patient, and informative from day 1 of our wedding planning process. She gave us a thorough tour, answered all of my many questions, and broke down the expenses for us based on our estimated guest numbers before even booking. None of the other venues that we looked at provided that information for us. We literally booked the Old Mill and changed our ideas for our wedding because of her professionalism, and that was 120% the right move!

The garden is a beautiful place to take pictures. We didn't need a studio or other place to go to on the day of - everything happened at the Old Mill.

The event team were truly mind readers and provided decorations that we weren't even aware would be provided. I had mentioned in passing that I wasn't a huge fan of a fence on the Guildhall patio and was told that nothing could be done so I let it be. Lo and behold, it was covered with greenery and potted flowers on the day of our wedding! The cabinet behind the head table was beautifully decorated with candles and ornaments that were beyond our expectations. The catering & service team greeted us on arrival, and Robert, our bartender, got rave reviews from our friends and family. The food was excellent - the steak was perfectly cooked, and the strawberry shortcake was the perfect end to dinner. Our non-vegetarian friends were even jealous of the tagine that our vegetarian friends got - not an easy feat! Our guests were also stunned by the kindness and efficiency of the wait staff. Their timing was impeccable - they allowed the flow of the wedding to go uninterrupted.

All in all, the food, service, and atmosphere of the Old Mill was exceptional. Their long history of planning events made the whole process way less stressful than it could have been. If you want a venue that can cater and execute a wedding in their sleep with little involvement from you on the day of, then we would highly recommend Old Mill!

Beautiful venue and wonderful people

Old Mill was beautiful, there were many great places for picture both inside and outside. The staff the day of were wonderful from Dimitri the day of coordinator, Willima the ceremony lead, Mark the officiant, Robert the bartender and all the servers they were very professional and warm. The bridal suit was perfect for a land zone for stuff and pre ceremony snacks.

The Worst Wedding Venue

We recently had a very disappointing experience at the Old Mill. While the location itself is undeniably stunning, my overall impression of the place was quite negative.

First and foremost, the customer service was absolutely terrible. The staff seemed to be disinterested and disorganized, making it difficult to communicate effectively. I had to make multiple attempts just to get a response to my inquiries, and even then, the information I received was incomplete and unhelpful.

During our tasting, the food was subpar at best. It was mostly bland and unappetizing, and we left feeling extremely underwhelmed. We're not tough food critics but the bread was clearly stale, pasta was cold (it was like they took the noodles out of the fridge and poured hot sauce over it), soup was tasteless, fish was not fresh.. I could go on and on.

It makes me wonder how people host good weddings here? I couldn't imagine subjecting my guests to such lacklustre customer service and cuisine on such an important occasion.

Overall, I was thoroughly disappointed with my experience at the Old Mill. I would highly advise anyone considering this venue to look elsewhere. We obviously did not book Old Mill for our wedding and if you are on the fence, this is your sign to not waste your money. There are SO many more beautiful venues that are similar in the Toronto area that are more than happy to have your business, it was clear Old Mill had no care to have ours.

Fantastic!

Our wedding reception at Old Mill was excellent! The service standard was exceptional, they accommodated our special requests, and were very easy to work with. On top of their personal touches, the grounds and architecture are gorgeous! Overall it was a very positive experience, highly classy location, and we got tons of positive feedback from our guests.
Price-wise, we also found them to be one of the more affordable options in Toronto at $72/head for seated, served 4 course dinner (alcohol package seperate at $60/head).
I will note that there are some exclusions - Old Mill doesn't have chair covers (just chivari chair rentals at $6/chair); the beer selection for the regular bar package isn't very good, and parking is an additional cost ($12/car).

Wonderful!!

From start to finish we experienced nothing but the best. Rebecca was our wedding director. She was sooooo sweet and ensured every detail was taken care of. We had a lot of hiccups while planning, on my side especially I had a lot of people who were covid cautious and I wanted to try to make people feel as comfortable as possible. Rebecca really helped with this as she tried to meet our needs as much as possible. We were also able to set up the day before which was just PERFECT! I was so excited that I was able to set up and was able to see the room before anyone else did. The Officiant Mark was so nice and such a sweet person, we had a zoom meeting with him before hand and met him in person the day of our wedding, he was nothing but sweet and guided us throughout the ceremony and made us feel comfortable and confident (as you can get super nervous speaking in front of people). The day of the wedding is always chaotic but our wedding day captain was a DREAM! Dimitri was wonderful to work with and made sure everything ran smoothly. I had a super long veil and he helped me up the stairs with it and into the chapel! If you're considering the Old Mill do not hesitate. Everyone here is wonderful and such a breeze to work with and really works as a team! Thank you Rebecca, Mark, Dimitri and everyone who helped us achieve our dream day!

Great service & beautiful ambiance

This location is beautiful and has everything we needed to make our wedding day special! They have many options for party sizes, a beautiful chapel for the ceremony, a gorgeous garden, and hallways for photos.

We initially hired the Old Mill Toronto in November 2019 for our wedding date that was then scheduled for October 2020. Since we have a lot of international family and everything was so uncertain with COVID-19, we moved our wedding date a few times and decided to update some of the services from the contract. The venue was very responsive and gave us options for the event we could host.

They also connected us with an amazing officiant who incorporated and personalized the ceremony for us, making it extra special!

For our wedding day, everything was ready and beautiful. We were very happy with the service and would totally recommend people to consider the Old Mill Toronto to host their special day

Wonderful hospitality

We had our wedding on Aug 7, 2021, it was supposed to be outdoors originally but it started pouring 2 hours before our event. I was so upset initially when I saw the team were setting up tables inside but I am now happy looking back at that night knowing their experience and professionalism made that night the great wedding night. When the night was over P, it didn鈥檛 matter that we had it indoors, guests went home even happier than if we would have the event outdoors
