    Wedding Reception at the Old Mill in Toronto

    We will not hesitate to recommend the "Old Mill" to anyone who will listen.
    It's a very beautiful environment; the staff is warm, friendly, courteous and knowledgeable and the food is excellent.
    The prices are quite reasonable and most of all, they deliver on their promises.
    Delicious food, great surrounding! What else does one want for your big day?

    Magical romantic wedding

    My husband and I got married at the Old Mill on December 8th 2018. We use the chapel for the ceremony and the Guild Hall for the reception. We worked with Lauren and Catering up until the day of our event and Alex the captain executed it
    Both were superb we couldn't have done it without them. Lauren thought of stuff we didn't even think of, Alex made everything easy. It was the best day of Our Lives we wouldn't change a thing. We had the buffet dinner all of our guests raved about how delicious and plentiful it was saying it was the best buffet they ever had. This place is rustic and romantic exactly what we were looking for.

    Beautiful venue but room for improvement

    The wait staff and bartender went above and beyond to make sure that our guests had a good time. Our guests had lots of great things to say about our day. However, there's definitely room for improvement when it comes to attention to detail. I would highly recommend hiring a wedding day coordinator and or planner to iron out all the details for you so you can just enjoy your special day.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We are very pleased our staff went above and beyond to ensure your guests had a good time. We are seeing the trend with most of our customers now hiring outside wedding planners to assist with the day of their wedding. We are currently considering providing this additional service in-house.

    Our Wedding

    We booked The Old Mill for our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony and wedding reception. Many of our friends and family stayed at the hotel and we had our post wedding brunch at the hotel restaurant as well.
    One of the biggest things for us when planning our wedding that everything could take place either at the same vendor or very close by. I also love vintage items, so the more rustic and aged the venue was, the better. The Old Mill fit that bill. We primarily dealt with Lauren who was a gem. She was always chipper and polite and answered every one of my questions.
    We had a fabulous wedding which was enjoyed by everyone. I have broken down some pros/cons about the experience below. I will say that when you are a bride, you are treated fabulous. After our wedding day was over, we had some staff simply dismiss us to the point where we felt we only mattered on the day. When we arrived the day before our wedding at the hotel, I needed help bringing things up to the room. The hotel front desk administrator informed me that the staff was on lunch and no one was available to help me. It took me and my friends 3 trips to bring in items from the car to our room..just an hour or so before our rehearsal.
    I do want to highlight Lauren and Alex and the waitressing/bartending staff as outstanding people who went ABOVE AND BEYOND for us. We loved them and would be thrilled to work with them again.
    I will recommend getting a wedding planner for the event. Although there were some mix ups, having a planner really helped as this is not something the Old Mill provides.
    Rev. Mark was amazing and many people complimented what a great job he did for the ceremony. This man has such a great voice and wonderful spirit. He was the perfect fit for us!
    We were happy to have booked with The Old Mill and are excited to book future events there.
    Pros:
    -Everything is located in one space.
    -I wanted a specific pumpkin pasta that was not on their menu. They arranged this for me. Lauren actually confirmed they could do this for me about a year before our wedding. We were away on vacation and she calmed me down by confirming this.
    -Response is very quick. Follow Up was great.
    -The food was amazing – everyone was saying how delicious it was.
    -The Old Mill really accommodated our party. We were going to have a happy hour outside and it just didn’t work out, the staff helped out with different solutions and it worked out perfectly.

    Some cons of The Old Mill:
    -There can be multiple weddings the same day and you only have a certain time to be in the chapel. Luckily we had a quick ceremony, but I did see multiple brides. They were coming into the chapel as some of our family were leaving and it did create some confusion. I don’t know if there could be a different way to set this up.
    -Add ons can be way overpriced. The charge to have wifi was unbelievable.
    -There is no tasting menu. We were told to try out the buffet (no compensation – it was around $50 each) to get an idea of how the chef cooks. Pretty much nothing of what we had on our wedding menu was made when we went to the buffet. Luckily we visited the wedding show where we actually got to try out some of the options and this actually helped us.
    -When you get the buffet, vendors plates are not discounted even though it is most likely that they will only be having one plate.
    -The venue is not really wheelchair friendly. They did accommodate us for everything, although due to some confusion between The Old Mill and my wedding coordinator, the ramp for my father to use was not placed in time for our wedding.

    A dream come true

    It was magical. The catering team was super responsive, they answered every question we had promptly and thoroughly. They food was superb, every single one of our guests enjoyed it and made comment. The venue was beautiful and the ceremony was unforgettable. There were tears all around.

    Couldn’t have done it without them

    The old Mill is such a beautiful reception area. The coordinator we dealt with was amazing throughout the whole process. She guided us and answered any and all questions along the way. All the photos are so beautiful because of this gorgeous venue. We were given a day of coordinator and he was just wonderful as well and we couldn’t have pulled it off without these amazing people.

    Couldn't have asked for a better venue

    I loved the venue from the moment I saw it. What made me love it even more was how affordable getting married at The Old Mill actually was.

    After pricing out a few different places, the value of having everything in the same place really made it an easy decision. The staff at The Old Mill was incredible, so organized and a dream to work with. Julie and Rebecca really made the whole process enjoyable and as stress free as possible.

    Also, they never rolled their eyes at the "I don't know, I've never been married" joke, so that right there was a bonus.

    I would love for The Old Mill to be "our place" and no ones else, but I can't help recommend it to all my friends & family just starting their wedding planning journey.

    Our wedding at the Old Mill

    Our wedding was held at The Old Mill, Guildhall, on 14-Sep-2018. It was by far one of the most beautiful days of my life and The Old Mill and its staff contributed to the success and beauty of the day. We worked with Lauren, a senior catering executive at the Old Mill. Lauren was so positive and accommodating during all our conversations with her. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable and made the various changes we requested happen. I was finishing up a Masters degree and did many things last minute, Lauren was super responsive even with last minute items. All our requests were executed beautifully. In addition, each and every one of our guests was mesmerized by the beauty of The Old Mill. I would encourage bride and husband-to-be's to give the old mill a visit and consider it for their wedding day. I would not change a thing about my wedding day at the Old Mill, I just wish it lasted longer; thank you Lauren so much for helping us make our dreams come true!!

    Beautiful venue

    The grounds are the real reason I picked the old Mill. Having Guild Hall in the summer is the most amazing location. Being able to combine the indoor dinner with cocktails and the bar on the patio created an atmosphere everyone loved. It's was so stunning.

    Old Mill Toronto's reply:

    Guildhall is one of our favourite rooms for that very reason. Combining dinner inside with the cocktails on the patio works very well in the warmer months and I'm glad your guests enjoyed the stunning atmosphere.
