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.

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.

    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.

    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! :)

    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!

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

    Couldn't Have Asked for a Better Venue!

    This venue was amazing. It has the simple and elegant qualities we were looking for. It was the perfect space for our intimate ceremony but could easily accommodate a larger wedding with reception. Michelle was super helpful and responsive during the entire process from booking to wedding day. I couldn't recommend this venue enough.

    The Knox Wedding & Event Venue's reply:

    Thank you so much for these kind words Kristina! It was such a great day celebrating you and Corbin

    Unconventional New Years Eve Wedding

    My husband and I had our wedding at the Knox on December 31st, 2021, after having been legally married in a private ceremony a year prior. The pandemic threw a wrench in our wedding celebration plans at the last minute, but the Knox was nothing but supportive and our day there, although not traditional, was beautiful. Michelle made my simple, small event feel just as special as any bigger, more elaborate wedding. The space is absolutely gorgeous and extremely practical - I loved the bridal suite and the industrial kitchen. The decor available to rent at the Knox was also perfect for our day. Michelle consulted with me from the very beginning and was always very kind and responsive in regards to my questions. Planning the wedding at the Knox was a seamless process.

    Wedding Venue

    Absolutely stunning space, we and our guests were blown away by its beauty. Michelle went above and beyond in every regard, organized and on top of everything especially the ever changing restrictions and keeping us informed. She was so easy to work with, personable, friendly and quick to answer any and all questions. We absolutely adored getting married at The Knox and wouldn't have changed a thing. Perfect venue for a perfect day!

    Excellent Venue!!

    I cannot recommend The Knox enough!! Merrickville is such a beautiful village for a wedding. So many great photo options for before or after your wedding! Michelle is wonderful and she will make sure everything you need for your wedding day is available for you. They have gorgeous rentals that you can use for an affordable rental fee. The owners have taken care of the building and redone it beautifully. The ceremony photos are absolutely stunning in this venue.

    We were originally supposed to get married in Ottawa but with the restrictions we changed our mind and went to The Knox. If I could do things over I would have just booked with The Knox from the beginning. Cannot recommend this venue and Michelle the Coordinator enough!!!

    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.
