Information about Strathmere
Strathmere has three beautiful wedding venues situated on a picturesque 200-acre property in Ottawa, including a 150-year-old restored barn, an airy and tranquil Garden House, and a beautiful fieldstone farmhouse. Exclusive facility rental, outdoor ceremony sites, field to plate menus, beautiful grounds, spa services and overnight guest rooms are some of the many reasons why Strathmere was voted one of Canada's Lovliest Wedding Venues by Wedding Bells Magazine.
Facilities and capacity
For over 38 years, Strathmere has been host to weddings from 15 to 250 guests. Strathmere has three very beautiful and unique venues, including The Inn, The Lodge and The Garden House. Careful thought and planning was given during the development of the 200-acre property to place each venue away from the others and set within its own private property, offering distinct views and landscapes to each, and ensuring that every couple has complete privacy and exclusivity of their favourite venue.
Each venue has its own beautiful outdoor ceremony site, with arbour, bench seating and a signing table. Their goal is always to have your ceremony outdoors, but in case of inclement weather and during the winter months, they set up for an indoor ceremony in front of the fieldstone fireplace.
They will assist you every step of the way. Their Reservations Team will assist you with questions as they arise. You will also be assigned an experienced Wedding Coordinator one month prior to the wedding day to finalize all of your details and to be there on your wedding day to ensure everything runs beautifully.
The facility rental fees include the following services:
Working within their philosophy of “Fresh, Local and Seasonal”, Executive Chef Angelo Camposarcone and Lead Grower Colin Lundy work hand in hand, offering Field to Plate menus for guests to enjoy. Breaking from tradition, Strathmere works exclusively with a Butcher for all of its meat, a Fishmonger for its fish and seafood, a Fromagiere for cheeses and a Local Egg Farmer, to mention just a few.
Strathmere has 34 guest rooms, all uniquely decorated and overlooking our 200-acre estate. While they have many individual guest rooms, there is also the option of reserving a private house for family and friends to spend quality time together while getting ready for the big day or visiting their property.

My wife and I could not be happier with our February 24th wedding at Strathmere. We chose the Lodge and were thrilled with the outdoor ceremony space. Strathmere really is a one-stop-shop, offering both a spectacularly quaint venue and a great selection of seasonal meal options. ... View more Guests raved about the appetizers, the meal itself, and the late-night snacks (the highlight of the night was definitely the Poutine Bar). Our wedding planner, Linda Spikker, was fantastic in all categories and went above and beyond for us. She made sure that every detail was to our satisfaction and checked in with us multiple times throughout the night, often keeping the night running smoothly while we socialized with guests. Thanks to everyone at Strathmere for their professionalism and for making our day as perfect as it was.

This venue is so beautiful. The food was absolutely amazing. They even made us a smaller cake of the buffet dessert since we looked it so much we diced to have it as our wedding cake! Having a wedding planner included in the service really helped with the last minute details we ... View more had forgotten about. They were very accommodating and allowed a few extras since we were the only wedding on suite that day. Wonderful venue!

What an amazing venue. We wanted an all-in-one type of venue to make things more simple and seamless. It was perfect for us. They have ample rooms available for out of town guests, a spa on-site where you can get get a bite to eat, get a manicure and makeup done. The food at the ... View more reception was amazing. They make everything from scratch. The ceremony site is very well maintained and was so beautiful for our outdoor Fall wedding. Our wedding co-ordinator was very helpful with answering all our questions and letting us know the timing of events. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We got so many compliments on how gorgeous the venue was and how delicious the food was. I couldn't imagine having been married anywhere else!

Strathmere is a fantastic venue. Very very professional--it's clear they know exactly what they're doing. Highly recommended.
I would recommend this as a venue, only if you value convenience above all else. The fact that the decor, food, some accommodations, and bar service were all provided by Strathmere made it very convenient and simple to plan our wedding. The food is fantastic! The space is ... View more beautiful! The staff were quick to move things when it rained. All that said, the accommodations were very disappointing. Our room (for the bride and groom) was supposed to have a king-sized bed. What we found was two single beds (of different heights) pushed together. It was incredibly uncomfortable and a pretty lousy way to end our night. We're still not sure what the day-of coordinator was supposed to do. My bridesmaids and I were told to wait in the room where we were getting ready until our coordinator came to get us. She never showed up and when we gave up on waiting, she jokingly asked why it had taken us so long to get there! She didn't cue the DJ, or the MC for anything as she said she would. It would have been better had we expected not to have a coordinator there. For convenience, food, and location it's perfect. But there are some definite areas for improvement.
