About The Knox Wedding & Event Venue

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 venue and amazing owner

    My fiancé and I found this venue about 3 weeks before our wedding date (we had to change venues due to pandemic, but wanted to do our best to keep our date) and Michelle was extremely supportive, positive, helpful, and professional. Michelle addressed all of our questions and concerns promptly, while emanating so much positivity that was much needed at that point of our wedding planning. The professionalism and organizational skills that Michelle has, made us feel so calm and well taken care of. She took our very small elopement seriously and gave us the support we needed to make the day happen.

    Then there's the venue: It is a beautiful old church that has the bones to make any wedding vibe come true. Michelle and her husband did an excellent job making the church a blank canvas that you can use as is, or decorate in the way that you needed for your event. The rentals she offered also saved us a lot of headache trying to find items that we couldn't get with lockdowns and shipping times.

    Thank you, Michelle!

    The Knox Saved our Wedding!

    I cannot say enough good things about The Knox. Michelle (the owner) and her partner have created a magical place to get married. My husband and I had to move our wedding last minute to due a change in provincial regulations and LUCKILY the Knox saved the day! Its a beautiful venue set in the adorable village of Merrickville an easy drive from Ottawa or Kingston. Its a converted church with a dash of gothic romance and drama just waiting for a couple to put their spin on the space. Anyone looking an extra special venue for their wedding or event should contact Michelle. She went above and beyond to make our day extra special we couldn't be more thrilled with our wedding day.
