This little gem of a venue was absolutely gorgeous! Such a beautiful landscape with many great photo opportunities. Rebecca was extremely easy to work with and helped make the day go smoothly. Very reasonably priced as well.Sent on 22/08/2021

Wonderful to work with thus far
We are currently in the process of preparing for our wedding in July 2018. We found this vendor on Weddingwire and had never heard of them before. The pictures were really nice and we were excited to check it out. Let me tell you, even though we visited as soon as the snow melted, the grounds were still gorgeous and we fell in love. Pictures do not do it justice. We have been dealing with Robyn and she has been wonderful so far. She has referred us to all kinds of vendors and has given us ideas along the way. Love the setting and the people. Would highly recommend making the trip if you're into the rustic theme. WAYYY more affordable than in the city.Sent on 20/03/2018

We found Ground Effects after having two other venues fall through, and they were incredibly helpful in helping us with our day. Robyn was very professional, responded to all our emails very quickly, and is incredibly knowledgeable about what works well and what doesn't. The venue was beautiful, the staff very professional, and we had an incredible day!Sent on 15/08/2016

My name is Rebecca and I joined the Special Events Centre in May of 2018. I went to Fanshawe Collge for Marketing - by the last few months of my schooling I was focused on Events & Promotions. I worked with a wedding planner in London and also attended trade shows for various busineses & non profit groups. Most of my life I have been planning parties, bridal/baby showers, stag and does and weddings, so I have a extensive background with various events!
I look forward to answering any questions you have about our amazing venue, and would love to show you around in person!
Please send me a message and we can chat about your special day and how the Special Events Centre can be the perfect spot for one of the biggest and most memorable days of your life!
