    Bellamere Winery Wedding Oct 17th 2020

    our wedding coordinator Patti really kept us organized and took care of alot of the details we simply didn't have time to plan out. This venue takes care of everything you would need for the perfect day. Thank you for helping to create our dream wedding. Even though weddings look a bit different in 2020 it was still a perfect day.

    Wedding at the Bellamere

    Our wedding at the ballamere winery was everything we could have hoped for! It was beyond perfect. The staff were professional and accommodating. All of our guests commented on how delicious the food was! Our day of coordinator was so helpful not only the day of but the days and months leading up to the ceremony. They were always available and answered our questions quickly. I would 100% recommend this venue to anyone!

    We were so impressed when we first looked at Bellamere, we booked it right away for our wedding August long weekend 2017. From the beautiful grounds to the options they offer, it was everything we envisioned for our wedding. We loved how the wedding packages included table linens, a DJ and a wedding coordinator. Patti – our wedding coordinator- was fantastic. We will be forever grateful to her great organization skills and attention to detail. She was there for us every step of the way and was very responsive to all our emails and questions. On the day of the wedding, everything ran so smoothly because of her. She was taking care of us and even got us food during the cocktail hour when we were too busy talking to our guests. Bellamere has a reputation for having delicious food and this was no exception at our wedding. Our guests raved about the food, especially the mashed potato bar at cocktail hour! The food was served hot and there was plenty! The late night food (which was flatbread pizza) was also delicious. The wait staff and bar tender worked very hard all night to serve our guests. They were all so nice and really went out of their way to please everyone. Bellamere includes DJ services through DJ Alpha Productions. DJ Sammy was excellent and kept the dance floor full all night long. We also found all of our other wedding vendors – Russell Rossini Floral Design and Event Decor, Encore Music London (string trio), HRM Photography (Niki), Through the Lens (videographers), Bake Shop Studio and Ken Lofegren (our officiant) through Bellamere’s recommended vendor’s list. We really did have a dream team of vendors! The beautiful grounds of Bellamere are one of a kind here in London, but so are the staff and vendors that work there. They were very accommodating and gave us the wedding of our dreams! We are so happy with our choice of Bellamere for our wedding – it was stunning, it was beautiful, it was AMAZING. It was a perfect day and we could not have asked for anything more! Thank you!

    Bellamere was the perfect venue for our winter wedding vision. It had the feel of a ski lodge, rustic charm with exposed wood beams, large stone fire place and lots of outdoor space. They were extremely helpful and the service and food was impeccable, in fact there were several people who raved about the food especially the mashed potato bar. Short comings were cost, as it was expensive, and they did not allow us to pick and choose what food was served or not. There were only two choices, plated meal or station meal and different appetizers were served depending one which you chose. They did provide a lot of extras (for a cost) which was handy like decor rentals or hot chocolate bar. Overall, we were extremely pleased with Bellamere and the staff were amazing!

    Gorgeous venue but very inflexible

    We fell in love with the rustic vibe of this venue, and their all-in-one package that included a DJ and a standard menu made the planning seem easy. However, after working with Bellamere over 6 months, we made the difficult decision to switch venues.

    It is certainly a challenge to have two weddings on the same venue with only one kitchen, and I wonder if that's why there were so many restrictions on our options. Despite having the larger hall, we were unable to move our ceremony time past 3pm due to the smaller hall's ceremony starting promptly at 5pm, and all our guests needed to be indoors by then. They also wanted to start the dinner early at 5:30pm and were quite resistant to delaying that. When we asked about tasting their wine or trying some of the menu items that were not served in the initial welcome dinner, we were told that was not possible and we would need to arrange a $500 dinner seating in order to try alternative menu items. Granted, we were finally able to try both the wine and a salad that was not on the menu, but it took quite a bit of emailing and eventually speaking to a manager. There is also no space at the venue to get ready / relax beforehand, or somewhere for kids to go later in the evening. They are also not open to having tents on the property. We just felt that their wedding style was very cut-and-paste, and any additional items we wanted to add to make our day special was going to be a hassle.

    If you are looking for an easy day at a beautiful venue, where you are OK with not having little extras beyond what is offered, or making any changes to the preset schedule, I imagine that Bellamere would be a great choice. However, I think there were some major limitations to this venue that likely had to do with a clash in our visions. Unfortunately, I didn't realize it until I had to forfeit my deposit to get out of it.

    Bellamere Winery & Event Centre's reply:

    Hello Karen,

    It is indeed easy to fall in love with Bellamere Winery, the Venue itself is beautiful and captivating, truly a hidden gem just outside of the city. Our Team of Wedding Professionals are dedicated and passionate about their roles, they go above and beyond to ensure the magic of your day unfolds.

    Bellamere has mastered the art of hosting two Weddings on the same date. We have two Halls onsite, each with their own Wedding Consultant, bridal suite, staffed kitchen, bartenders and service staff. Prior to booking your Wedding, conversations took place and emails were sent explaining the process of our services and outlining the timeline of your day. You were well aware and agreed to a 3:00 pm Ceremony start time prior to officially signing your Contract. We offered you the option of hosting your Ceremony offsite with Reception at Bellamere for guests to arrive at 6:00 pm, you choose onsite Ceremony at 3:00 pm. Hence, we moved forward with the planning of your special day.

    An invitation to our Open House Evening was extended to yourselves, at this time you had the opportunity to taste your menu items along with our Wines. We would also like to mention, shortly after your first Tour and Consultation, prior to officially signing your Contract, arrangements were made for both of you to come into Bellamere to taste our Wine. It is true, following this Open House you requested to taste various salad options for your menu. This was arranged to take place at your first Planning Meeting with your Wedding Consultant. A Manager was not involved to organize this additional tasting, there was no resistance to it and there was no fee charged. In hindsight, if you were to have another Tasting Evening with up to 6 guests attending, then absolutely fees to cover food orders, kitchen labour, operational and service staff would be applicable. Bellamere is not a restaurant, if hosting an event of any sort, the cost to provide these items and perform these roles is applicable.

    Our Bridal Suite is cute and cozy! This space is perfect to touch up hair and makeup, or simply sit / relax, enjoy the moment and take it all in. Aware of this, we always suggest for our Bride and Bridesmaids to arrive ready to walk down the aisle. There is no dedicated area for children, typically they enjoy the festivities earlier in the day and later are either dance machines or head home to bed. If you feel a Tent is best suited for your Wedding Party and/or children, it is welcome on our property. Due to past experiences and being located in a country setting with wildlife, we do suggest the alternatives. You had mentioned having an RV in the parking lot for the children, if so, it was welcome to remain in our lot over the weekend, at the time you were very happy with this resolution.

    Planning and hosting Weddings is our pride and joy, communication is key for the success of this role. We were never told or given the impression you were contemplating the change of Venues or the complete cancellation of your Wedding. With the onset of Covid-19 and the restrictions in society, invoked by the World Health Organization, we reached out with the option of choosing another date either later this year or in 2021, as a backup for your Wedding. All monies paid thus far would be transferred at no additional costs or loss of funds to yourselves. We held this second date for a period of four months awaiting your decision. It came as a huge shock to ourselves when you cancelled both your Wedding day along with your backup date just two days prior to your initial Wedding. Even though funds to date were depleted in the planning and purchasing for your day, we still compromised and refunded an amount. This all took place in June of this year. It is now August.

    Regardless of the present situation, we do wish you all the very best for a beautiful Wedding Day and many years of happiness together.

    The Bellamere Team.
