About

The Knox Wedding & Event Venue is a banquet hall located in Merrickville, Ontario. This elegant and sophisticated property successfully marries the old with the new in pleasing ways. Once upon a time, it was a Presbyterian church built in 1861, but it has been repurposed to host ceremonies, receptions, and other significant events.

Facilities and Capacity

The exterior of The Knox Wedding & Event Venue catches the eye with its beautiful red-brick finish that is sure to appeal to many. This distinctive feature makes this building more than fitting as a backdrop for photos. Couples and guests are welcome to pose together before and after the main event as everyone savours the once-in-a-lifetime occasion. The 3,300 square feet of open-air space also encompasses a delightful garden. There is even more to appreciate inside the 1,200 square-foot main area. The beautiful white colour scheme provides a serene setting for the romantic ‘I-do’ occasion. Boasting Gothic windows and charming light fixtures, it offers a simply gorgeous place for two people to begin the first chapter of their married lives. The wedding party can share the moment inside this intimate and inviting function area as the vows are caught on camera to be replayed at a later date. When the time comes for the all-important reception, the same space may be arranged appropriately for more mingling, new memories, and some party festivities. Overall, the maximum capacity of The Knox Wedding & Event Venue is for 80 people. As the afternoon drifts towards the evening, everyone can savour some culinary delights, get lost in conversation, and enjoy the one-of-a-kind nature of the milestone.

    Amazing wedding experience

    The Knox, and Michelle were nothing short of amazing. The entire process right from the beginning was smooth, flexible, and accommodating. The space is absolutely stunning and the wedding of my dreams came to life here. From the rentals, the day before, the planning process, Michelle was always there to answer any questions, or changes I had and everything was at ease. I would recommend the Knox to anyone getting married.

    Venue of Dreams

    When I saw the photos on line, I fell in love, and when we visited, we fell in love even more! This venue has all the historical charm with the perfect modern "blank slate" to allow anyone to create the day of their dreams. Merrickville is a beautiful town, with something for everyone to see and do. Everything was amazing, Michelle is so knowledgable and really makes you feel welcomed and taken care of. Her organization makes all the steps involved a breeze. I cannot reccommend to anyone looking for an intimate, effortless and romantic place to start their life together to see this venue.

    exceptional

    The village of Merrickville is beautiful, this venue is beautiful and the soul of the woman who owns it is even more beautiful. Michelle went above and beyond for our day as I’m sure she does for every couple who has the pleasure of getting married at The Knox. The venue itself requires little to be added as it’s stunning in it’s own right & is the most picturesque spot for an intimate wedding with that small town feeling, but it’s really the people who make The Knox so special. Michelle wasn’t able to be there on our wedding day, but went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed (and more) before she went out of town. When I found out she wouldn’t be able to be there, I was a little disappointed because I was looking forward to having her positive energy, professionalism, and smiling face there for our big day, but Sydney filled those shoes very well. I can’t say enough about this incredible venue and about Michelle & her wonderful team.

    A fantastic venue!

    My husband and I LOVED getting married at The Knox. The owner, Michelle, made things so easy and I can honestly say she is one of the nicest people I have ever met. The space is filled with opportunity and is the perfect backdrop for any wedding. Merrickville was a great spot to get married in as it was a fun getaway for our guests as well. I wish we could do it all over again! :)

    A dream come true

    We knew the moment we went to the Knox a year ago that we wanted to get married there. Over the last year working with Michelle has been so easy and she has been so kind and genuine. Our wedding day went so smoothly and we enjoyed every second of it. We would recommend this venue to everyone, you won’t be disappointed.

    Amazing venue!!

    We couldn't be happier that we found The Knox for our wedding! It was the perfect venue - the exterior is stunning and the interior as well, and being a blank canvas you can really do whatever you like with it. Michelle was amazing, and so helpful and made us feel so good and relaxed about our wedding. Also, Merrickville is such a cute little town with great photo spots. 10/10 would recommend to anyone!

    The Knox Wedding & Event Venue's reply:

    Thank you so much Tamara! We loved being a part of you and Wills wedding day and had so much fun hosting!

    Perfect spot for your intimate wedding!

    First of all I want to say Michelle and her amazing staff made this experience and absolute breeze! She was so patient, kind, and reassuring throughout the whole process! The venue itself was stunning, so bright and beautiful. With the big gothic windows and twinkling lights outside the whole night felt magical! If you are debating booking this venue, DO IT! :)

    A truely perfect day

    From day 1 of choosing The Knox, Michelle was available to answer any questions in a very timely and informative fashion. The venue itself is naturally beautiful and is a great place to have both a ceremony and a reception. The day before the wedding, I had forgotten to mention a few items we needed to Michelle and she had no problem running to grab them. Her team Sydney and Sam were incredibly helpful the day of the wedding and the day could not have gone any smoother. We would recommend this venue to any couple looking to have the best team to support you throughout the wedding process and a recipe for an absolutely amazing wedding day. We truly could not be happier with our experience!
