    Great experience

    From the beginning we said yes to the Guild Inn as our venue we had only but a great experience with them. It is so beautiful from the gardens to inside with the big windows, we instantly had to book this venue.
    Every question and concern we had during this time was answered and or fixed. We never had a big issue even during this uncertain time, they took care of us. I am thankful for everyone there who came together to make our day so beautiful!
    The food was amazing! Only great things said about it! The service that night was fast and everything went so smoothly.

    Outstanding Experience at The Guild Estate Inn

    My husband and I were married at The Guild Inn Estate on December 4th 2021. We originally were supposed to wed December 5th 2020 but due to Covid we were postponed a year. We had selected our venue pre-Covid and were paired up with Francesca Bancheri, Director of Special Events & community relations. From the very beginning Francesca was amazing! Obviously, we were very nervous to move forward as Covid became worse and worse but Francesca was there to support us every step of the way and answer our many questions.
    We were given different options for what we wanted to do given the pandemic and we decided to hold out until 2021. Thankfully, the timing worked out and our wedding was a hit! The food was absolutely amazing, the venue its self was so beautiful and a great backdrop for our photos. Our entire bridal party got ready at the venue, which was a last-minute addition thanks to Francesca for organizing. We could not be happier with the entire day and planning up until the event. Thank you to Francesca and the Guild staff for making this dream wedding come true!

    Amazing experience from planning through to the end of our wedding night

    Incredible experience with the Guild Inn Estate! We had our wedding there on October 30th and as hectic as weddings can be, I can truthfully say ours went pretty smoothly thanks to the staff and team.

    First, the grounds are beautiful. It rained (POURED) on our special day but everything is so beautiful there that it didn't matter - plenty of spaces just close enough to the venue to take some great outdoor photos.

    I want to give a special shout out to Francesca who was professional, friendly, and super helpful when we needed guidance with navigating the whole planning process in the middle of a pandemic. Wedding planning can be tough enough but Francesca really helped us make sure we had all our ducks in a row. Francesca was also very responsive and answered my many questions.

    I also want to give Beth a massive virtual hug. On the day-of, Beth made sure my husband and I were fed and well taken care of (because it really does get hectic!!). Beth checked in frequently, was there to keep me calm before our ceremony because some key guests were running late, and helped us locate missing items at the end of night.

    Great experience, highly recommend!

    Amazing Venue with Lovely Staff

    We would gladly recommend The Guild Inn Estate to anyone looking to host a wedding. The building and grounds are breathtaking! Being able to have our ceremony and reception at the same venue helped alleviate a lot of stress and allowed for the day to go smoothly. The Gazebo on-site is a beautiful outdoor, covered space where we were able to have our ceremony. We had an excellent experience planning and getting organized with Francesca. She quickly responded to our many emails and was always very informative regarding any changes required due to provincial Covid-19 mandates. Our staff during the reception were wonderful including our event manager, Beth. It was the perfect place to host our wedding!

    Perfect Wedding Day at The Guild

    We couldn't be any happier with our choice to get married at The Guild! During 2 difficult years of having to constantly postpone our wedding beause of Covid, Francesca at The Guild was incredibly kind, patient and accomodating. The environment, food, decor, staff and overall experience were amazing. We will never forget our special day and know we will be back as guests for plenty more weddings and events to come!

    The Perfect Venue for our Perfect Day!

    The Guild Inn was fantastic. It was at the top of our list when starting our planning and did not disappoint. The Wedding turned out more perfect than we could have ever hoped for.

    Francesca was an absolute rock throughout the whole process. She was always available and extremely supportive to our (many) questions. She made sure we had everything we needed and that everything was arranged and setup to our liking. COVID through a wrench into things, but again, the support system and flexibility was there, even without us needing to ask for it. We are forever grateful to have had Francesca working with us along the way.

    The night of went off smoother than we would have dreamed. Judy was outstanding as our night of co-ordinator. She was everywhere she needed to be and helped us every step of the way. Made our lives 100x easier and went above and beyond in every situation. We can't say enough nice things about her and the staff throughout the night.

    Lastly the food. Wow was it amazing. I believe every guest who attended made a comment about how good there meal was. We also had many food allergies that had to be worked through and the Guild made everything not only work, but taste amazing.

    The Guild was the perfect choice for our special day!

    The Guild Inn Estate's reply:

    Thank you so very much Emma for the time you took to write this detailed review. We're so delighted to see your review pop up that we sent this to Francesca and the rest of the team as it is the fuel that keeps us striving for the best standard we can offer as a venue during these unprecedented times. We wish you both a healthy and fulfilling life together. Stay safe.

    Our best day ever!

    The Guild Inn has become an extremely popular wedding venue in the past 1-2 years and there is a reason for that. It didn't take us long to decide to have our wedding here and we know that we made the right decision!

    First of all, it is an amazing location right by the Bluffs. The Guildwood Park is also undeniably one of the most gorgeous places for wedding photos in the GTA. We also loved the fact that we could do everything at just one location - wedding photos, ceremony and reception. They even included an officiant and musician in their ceremony package, which was brilliant! Both my husband and I come from Chinese families, so our parents demanded a Chinese banquet and  the Guild Inn partners with the best Chinese caterer in the GTA. 

    Francesca was our main point of contact and had been wonderful to work with. We booked the Guild Inn over a year before our wedding date and every time we reached out to her by email, she had been very prompt and helpful with her responses. When we finally met her in person, she was just as great and professional. We really appreciated the accommodation to some of our guests' special meal requests. 

    Priyanka was our banquet manager for the reception. Although we did not have much time to interact with her, we thank her and the team for doing an overall fantastic job. The only thing that could have improved was the cocktail hour. Due to the rain, we had to relocate from the outdoor terrace to the indoor lobby area. Since this was an unexpected change, our guests had to wait outside the reception entrance for a short period without food. When the hors d'oeuvres were served though, they were really delicious! We also had a signature cocktail made by the bartender and our guests loved it! We also want to commend the team for their excellent coordination with our other vendors.

    Overall, we are very satisfied with having our wedding here. We actually would love to come back perhaps for a friend's wedding so that we could relive the great memories we've made at the Guild Inn. Thank you so much!
