Would definitely recommend!
We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Doctor's House May 2019 - we used the chapel and the Heritage and Colony rooms. We were initially attracted by the wood beams in the Heritage room and the competitive pricing (if you're willing to do a Friday winter wedding, which we were). We first met with Jessica, who showed us around and helped us decide on a day and a package, and was able to negotiate a few extras for us, since we were taking a day that was under-booked at the time. We were then told that we could visit anytime as we planned our decor, and would be contacted a couple of months before the big day to go over details with our Venue Logistics Manager.Sent on 12/05/2019
In the interim, we contacted the venue's in-house officiant about personalizing our ceremony, but we never heard back from him so we opted to hire someone else. He was there on the day and was very friendly and helpful in ushering.
We also emailed the in-house organist far ahead because we wanted her to play a special piece of music not on her regular list. I got a bit anxious because she didn't reply until the week before the wedding, but when she did she was very responsive and assured us she could play the music. It's important to note, though, that only the organ is included in the chapel price. If you want a piece of music played on the keyboard instead to sound like a piano, that is an extra $50 fee.
About 3 months before the wedding, we heard from our Logistics Manager Katy. We could not say enough good things about Katy. She was super friendly and clearly knew what she was talking about. If ever she wasn't sure about something, she assured us she would look into it and updated us as soon as she had an answer. She was incredibly detail-oriented and flexible with all our requests. After our details meeting, she was the one who continued to update our contract and information as changes were made, right up until the day before. In the week or two leading up to the wedding I must have sent her at least one email a day, sometimes more, as I got late RSVPs, changed my mind about various details, or had last minute questions. She replied to each and every one of them and kept all the details straight for us. And she never once gave me the impression that she was annoyed by me (I have no idea how I compare to other brides, so who knows, maybe I was a piece of cake!?)
She was at our rehearsal the day before and was very calming as she directed our wedding party about where to be, how to walk and pace themselves, etc.
On the day, she was there for our ceremony and directed everyone again, and everything went so smoothly!
Once we got to the reception, we got so many compliments about the attentiveness and professionalism of the Doctor's House Staff. My mother-in-law uses a mobility scooter to get around and she said that the staff were so helpful with getting her to the elevator, moving furniture if it was in her way, and just generally checking in with her to see if she needed anything.
The food was great, we met with the executive chef for our tasting and he explained the fancy new technology they use to cook the food so it doesn't spend time under a heat lamp and everything tastes fresh, even when they're serving over a hundred guests at a time. The service was a little slower than expected, but we didn't even notice until dinner was over and we realized the time - it didn't feel like we were waiting around or anything!
We stayed in Bridal Suite 1 which was beautiful, and the housekeeper was so friendly and lovely when she came by to refresh the room in the morning.
And the front desk staff were consistently so friendly and helpful, we always felt welcomed when we came to visit.
The only issue we had could be quite easily resolved by putting a rope barrier or a sign or something at the bottom of the stairs indicating that it was a private event - we had several people coming upstairs from other weddings to use our washroom, even though each room has its own washrooms. My husband even intercepted a couple of ladies trying to enter the Heritage Room - maybe they were just curious and looking around? Of course the Doctor's House is not responsible for other people's guests, but putting a sign or a rope I believe would stop 90% of our bathroom crashers. (Seriously, I personally saw about 15 non-guests going into our washrooms and I was not close to the landing most of the night - our bathrooms got a bit yucky by the end of the night and I think that's because of all our extra visitors).
Other than that though, everything was great and it doesn't change the fact that we are so happy with our choice of venue, and would 100% recommend them to others!

We just had our wedding at The Doctors House and couldn’t imagine being married anywhere else! The chapel is perfect and made it a very intimate ceremony and the bell ringing tradition was a perfect touch. We had our kids ring the bell with us and we will never forget that moment.
The staff and our wedding coordinator, Katy, were all amazing from the very start. We had nothing to worry about and everything went as planned. We would highly recommend this venue for a wedding.Sent on 25/04/2019

Our Dream Wedding!
Weeks later, our guests are STILL talking about our amazing wedding at the Doctor's House. Our dream was to have our wedding at the Great Hall and it really came true. Thank you so much to Katy for all her help the whole time. Her and the rest of the Doctor's House team helped make our Ceremony at their Chapel run smoothly and worked with our vendors to make our venue look amazing. The one thing our guests can't stop mentioning to us and we get compliments on was our food! If you can, we 100% recommend you choose the Braised Short Rib for your main, I am not kidding that everyone LOVED it, such a soft and delicious dish, people couldn't get enough! Thank you so much for making our wedding the best wedding our families have ever had. Wish we could do it again every weekend.Sent on 01/05/2019

The Doctor's House - Wedding of our Dreams
The Doctor's House is a place where all of your wedding dreams come true! Our wedding was in December of 2018 at The Doctor's House in the Chapel and the reception was in The Colony Room + Heritage Room. The venue brought my entire vision to life as our wedding was a very British, Vintage, Romantic feel + aesthetic.Sent on 03/01/2019
Joy was our sales person who helped with all of our questions, ideas and truly made us feel so comfortable. Katy and Allison were our wedding coordinators - they are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. They both helped me stay so calm, organized and comfortable for the entire process leading up to the wedding and for the day of. I can never thank them enough for making our family feel so welcome and special.
The food and venue were absolutely incredible. The staff for our wedding were top notch professionals and I am so grateful for all of their efforts and doing everything they could to make our day special.
For our ceremony, we had Dennis as our Officiant. He is such an amazing Minister and person. We are so thankful to him for his services and making our day truly magical.
For all brides, I would recommend booking out the Bridal Suites. We used one for the bridesmaids for the day of to get ready and the second suite for the groom + groomsmen. It was great as everyone was able to relax, get ready and be in the moment. The suites also made for some great photo opportunities and you can stay overnight (which is a huge bonus).
Our guests are still talking about the food, the venue and the entire experience. When I saw The Doctors House, I knew this venue was the place for my family and I to have our special wedding day. Thank you for exceeding all expectations and making our dreams come true!

Book the Doctor's House for your wedding!!!
The Doctor's House was truly the best. Our wedding went off without a hitch, and we cannot thank all the staff enough. They all went above and beyond to ensure everything went smooth. From the ceremony to the cocktail hour, to the dinner service and then the dance party, our guests had a blast. The food was incredible, and we very much appreciate the AMAZING vegan meals and vegan late night station. To top it all off, the grounds are GORGEOUS. The gardens were an absolute fairy tale with the fall leaves and colours. Truly a magical day. We cannot recommend this venue enough!Sent on 05/11/2018
