I can't wait to get married at The Henley Room. We're having a smaller wedding and we wanted to stay in the city but not be in the middle of the city. Also we wanted to be on the water. The Henley Room is a great little find that fit all our needs. Did I mention they also have free parking which is so helpful.
Overall I've enjoyed the experience of booking with them and they seem super helpful compared to a lot of other venues. If I want a special beer they're happy to bring it in just for us which is great because my partner loves his craft beer. The view of the water is also unbelievable . Can't wait.

Our wedding was great, the venue was fantastic, they even redid the carpet right before our wedding which was a bonus! We loved the beautiful outdoor ceremony space and the bar list is awesome. I would say they really need to work on getting better at responding to emails and voicemail as it took a long time to get a response even when we were trying to book the place. All of our guests had a great time though and so did we! I do think it is a bit pricey considering there is no discount for a Friday wedding and the room itself definitely needs updating, but in all we had a great day and had no issues with the venue :)

This was a beautiful venue, the event management staff is friendly and once we got to know them - they were very helpful and insightful, and offered honest feedback about decor etc. The room booking price includes the tables, chairs, decor tables (small square tables to be used as photobooth, cake table, or to put guest book on. about 8 small tables) However, all table setting (dinnerware,flatware, drinking glasses, water jugs) have to be rented from their preferred vendor (Chairman Mills) which can hike up the price quite a bit. Also, have to bring your own servers (also adds to the cost). GREAT THING is that you can bring your own caterer (esp. if you need to serve non North American food e.g. Indian/Arabic/etc. - my wedding was Indian/Pakistani so we needed south asian food!). They let your caterer use their kitchen for a landmark fee (like any other venue). Soft bar is a little higher priced than other venues. Overall - given it was a summer wedding, this place is beautiful, gorgeous natural light in the room, great soft pot lights for night time, excellent view of the water. Sound system for music and speeches is great. Really nice rustic/lodge vibe due to the setting. If you are having an intimate wedding, this is a great place to do it!

This was a great choice
Absolutely loved getting married here. I don’t have a single complaint about it. Robin, the event coordinator who worked with me was wonderful. She was friendly, approachable, and on the ball. She was also just a lovely, sunny person.
The venue itself was the perfect size for an 80 person event. The view of the lake was spectacular. The free parking on site was also a bonus for my guests who car-pooled. We had a cocktail style reception and Robin was great for helping me with the layout and furniture rentals. We had an outdoor, dock side ceremony and it was chilly but worth it.
We went with an open bar provided by the venue and I am so happy with that decision. My guests loved their selection and quality. The venue booking included a wine tasting (we picked like 6 wines) and the bar included craft beers and brand name spirits.
My mom also surprise booked a live owl to show up (with a handler) during the reception. Robin was super patient and accommodating with this unusual surprise.
I really couldn’t recommend The Henley Room more. Working with them as a vendor was one of the easiest and most worry-free parts of planning my wedding.

We held our wedding at the Henley Room this past May and I was so thrilled with how everything went. Logan and Robin, our planners, were an absolute dream to work with. Ours was a tricky and complicated situation since neither of us currently live in Toronto; I was so, SO grateful for their flexibility and their willingness to communicate with me so often via email and to help liaise with our caterers. They met with us on numerous occasions to make sure our evening was beautiful and memorable - and they totally succeeded. If you're someone who wants a beautiful setting on the lake and wants a lot of opportunity to really make your event your own without blowing a lot of money - be it with your linens/ decor, your food... whatever... - this is the place for you. The liquor/ alcohol selection as well is ON POINT! (Also, an EXTREMELY affordable deposit!) Thank you guys
The Henley Room's reply:
Leah!!!! Thank you for your kind words -you were the dream to work with!
I'm so glad that you and Theo were happy with your experience at The Henley Room. We so enjoyed getting to be a part of your special day :)
