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.

Amazing venue

The Knox is the best venue. The old church is stunning, the grounds are mystical, and Michelle and her staff are lovely to work with! We cannot recommend them enough 🥰.

The Knox is "THE" venue

My mother, who was an artist, once told me, “ if a building looks beautiful empty, then it’s a beautiful building.” No one need look further than simply opening the front door to be WOWED by The Knox’s organic beauty.

Lay one rose in the middle of her open space ……and that would be décor enough.

Luckily the beauty does not stop with the building itself. This venue is cared for and shared with others by incredibly kind, helpful humans, 3 of whom my husband and I had the great pleasure of working with as we planned our fall wedding. ( Sam, Danielle, and Michelle )

Support was offered at every turn. Responses to our emails with questions/concerns came almost as quickly as they were sent.

Pricing was well within reason.

The quality of their rental products were top notch.

We were permitted endless opportunities to visit the venue, each time met by staff who appeared to have all the time in the world for us.

When we arrived to decorate our venue it was sparklingly clean …….even the chandeliers seem to twinkle brighter. And again, we were met by staff who opened tables, helped place candles, stood on step ladders, and gave tons of positive feedback to the nervous bride.

Our wedding was perfect ……from Sam standing in the rain holding an umbrella over my 85 year old father’s head as he accompanied me into “our church,” to the incredible acoustics as our musician sang to us our “vow song,” to the beautiful light pouring thru the magnificent cathedral windows into all our wedding photos.

As we headed home, to continue our day in our PJ’s my last glimpse of The Knox was Sam giving us a head start on the next day’s cleaning schedule.

This is THE VENUE…..plain and simple.

A wedding venue that goes above and beyond

My husband and I fell in love with the Knox from the moment we laid eyes on the brochure. When we finally got to book a visit with Michelle the owner, we could barely contain our excitement. We walked into the space, my husband and I looked around then at each other, and he immediately said "honey, I had IDEAS". What was supposed to be a 30 minute consult ended up lasting well over an hour because Michelle and we just clicked and kept gushing about wedding planning details. Needless to say, we booked the place immediately.

And we're so glad we did.

At every step of the process the team at the Knox was behind us, answering question, proactively sending us info and ressources to check out, recommending vendors when I didn't know where to start looking, etc. I'd decided not to hire a wedding planner and to go at it all myself, and I can safely say our big day would not have been what it was without the guidance of the Knox's team. From our initial chats with Michelle, to our crunch-time review sessions with Sydney, to our day being expertly overseen by Danielle, everyone was stellar in their professionalism and helpfulness. Danielle in particular went above and beyond in her duties, going from venue coordinator to Day-Of coordinator and helping arrange last-minute rental swaps, a room flip, and vendor schedules.

I could keep going on and on and on about how great the Knox is, but, I guess you should just book them and experience that for yourself ;)

Excellent! Loved working with The Knox team!

We were so so happy to work with Michelle, Sam & Danielle at The Knox for our special day! These ladies made our wedding a breeze. We cannot thank their team enough. These ladies were helpful, professional, knowledgeable and an absolute pleasure to work with. We highly recommend this venue and site to anyone.

The Best Intimate Venue!

We had the absolute best time, and I credit a lot of it to The Knox and their staff. From the moment we stepped inside it was love at first sight. Michelle was incredible in helping us navigate the wedding planning process from the day we selected The Knox. Sydney & Danielle were instrumental in ensuring we had a stress free day and were incredible with our guests and vendors! Couldn’t recommend the Knox more!!

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.

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.

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! :)
