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.

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 dayđź‘Źđź‘Ť

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.

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.

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!

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!

K&V Wedding - Nov 6, 2021

Victoria & Garret rooms are so gorgeous, when you plan to celebrate indoors. Garret sets the mood for mingling and creates cozy atmosphere for guests to relax and chat enjoying a cocktail or two. Victoria room....huge windows, light, chandelier lamps, floral curtains.... it has the fairy feel to it, you don't need to decorate this room much! Overall, the venue is beyond gorgeous, whether you prefer to have your pictures taken inside or outside in the garden, it's a win-win.
Special big thanks to Rebecca, who was very flexible with postponing our date and changing guests count due to covid ever-changing situation. The Old Mill team - Rebecca, reception staff, Alex (our captain), Maria & Marina (catering support), bartender Johnny and behind the scene team ( the chef and cooking team) did a fantastic job! Their smooth work made our wedding joyful and stress-free. Our guests loved the food, chocolate mousse was a hit dessert and beef barley soup finished in no time, as everyone wanted more of it!
The change rooms were very handy, especially for myself as a bride, who changed the dresses throughout the event. The change rooms have washrooms, big mirrors and you get a key to lock your belongings inside.
We had a truly happy reception and we recommend Old Mill for celebrating your milestones! We will be back for sure. Thank you!

Incredible Venue & Coordinator

Our wedding coordinator was Rebecca Middleton and she was absolutely amazing. She arranged everything for us perfectly and I am thrilled with her service. Further to this, the venue is gorgeous! I am so happy the chapel is in the venue and with the way the team set up our reception room. We were in Brûlée Room A and it was simply gorgeous. The only thing is the hotel. I loveeeee the hotel and it is ENTIRELY separate from the venue (business wise). The hotel manager is probably the rudest person I’ve ever had the misfortune of speaking to. She refused to allow my father to check in early. She yelled at me, interrupted me repeatedly and I simply had to reach out to HER bosses to arrange an early check in for my sick father. She should be ashamed of herself. Colleen Ross almost made myself and my husband’s family cancel our hotel reservations. If it wasn’t for Ms. Ross’ boss assisting us and Rebecca’s amazing service to help us deal with Ms. Ross, we likely would have stayed at another hotel. I will say that Ms. Ross’ boss went above and beyond and we were thrilled with our stay.

Excellent venue to work with - beautiful

The venue was absolutely gorgeous - it looks like an old castle. Minimal decorations were needed to make it look fabulous, just a few flowers and everything looked great! We chose a plated dinner, and the food was excellent. To quote one of our guests, the tiramisu (dessert) was "the best thing I have ever put in my mouth". Our point of contact was Rebecca, and she was amazing to work with, was very flexible and always got back to us when we had questions. We really appreciated all her help! The staff and all the servers were just flawless, and our experience was amazing. Shoutout to the bartender, thanks for putting up with all our crazy friends and relatives, you have the patience of a saint!
