Chris & Jill Say “I Do”

On first meeting Chris and Jill, you could tell they were made for each other.  Their intimate wedding on Sunday, November 5, 2017 truly represented this couple’s style and spirit through and through.

Their outdoor ceremony had a last minute change of plans due to the weather but they found the Drawing Room a perfect match for what they were envisioning. As the flowers were laid on the mantel and the room was cleansed with some herbs, Chris and Jill were ready to say “I Do”.

After the ceremony on the third-floor of The Great Hall, guests swiftly moved to the second floor to enjoy premium cocktails, dinner by Northern Maverick and dancing surrounded by Addison’s vintage decor Chris and Jill handpicked for their special day.  Scarlet O’Neill captured intimate moments while the Conversation Room was their sanctuary for the rest of the evening.

Chris and Jill, The Great Hall raises its glass to you!



Events: The Great Hall Hosts Grace Loves Lace’s Canadian Debut

Grace Loves Lace Toronto Concierge
Cult Australian favourite wedding dress designer Grace Loves Lace is coming to Canada for their exclusive debut, a Toronto Concierge event, only at The Great Hall, March 10-19, 2017.

It’s no surprise that North American brides-to-be have fallen hard for the luxurious, effortlessly unique yet surprisingly affordable wedding gowns Grace Loves Lace offers, just as much as Aussie ladies. Setting up shop on The Great Hall’s corner of West Queen West — a hot spot for Toronto style and creativity — was a clear choice for the fashion-forward brand.

From across their native Australia, to their new showroom in Venice, CA and on the wedding style circuit, Grace Loves Lave is recognized for creating bridal sanctuaries in bright spaces with high ceilings, their signature clean white, hardwood and timber floors, and vintage-inspired details. The Great Hall’s secluded Drawing Room makes a perfect fit for this GLL design statement with its dark wood floors, original Palladian arch and mullioned windows overlooking West Queen West, wrought iron chandelier and original 1889 architectural details. The Drawing Room’s sleek gourmet kitchen and grand bar will also be set with the sparkling wine, rose tea and nibbles that are a finishing touch to Grace Loves Lace concierge events.

Ontario brides are invited to submit their requests for a complimentary one-on-one Grace Loves Lace styling session appointment in Toronto online now. You and your guests will also have an opportunity to check out The Great Hall’s other three newly restored event venues, made for weddings, social occasions and other celebrations with groups from 10 to 300.

Be sure to register today for Grace Loves Lace Toronto Concierge, #GLLxTO, at The Great Hall. Then, let’s find “the dress” and get married, Toronto!  #GLLxTO

Weddings: Corynn Fowler Photography Styled Shoot, Conversation Room

At The Great Hall, we are fortunate to host both many weddings and celebrations, and, also, a growing number of  engagement, wedding and wedding fashion and industry photo shoots. Recently, we welcomed Corynn Fowler Photography, a wedding, engagement and lifestyle photographer based in Toronto and Collingwood, to our Conversation Room,  for a styled shoot with her friend Amy from Bridal Hair Collective.

Here’s some of what Corynn had to say about that shoot day:
“We were working at The Great Hall, one of Toronto’s stunning new venues this season.  It has just been renovated and re-opened as a beautiful, classic old Queen St. West building, with an elegant and minimalist vibe inside the airy white rooms.  It has tall windows and even taller ceilings, as well as a spectacular old stage theater complete with balconies and velvet drapes that filter in the most dreamy dramatic light.

I had no idea what a treat I was about to experience my first time shooting here, and immediately hopped-to scheduling more time to shoot at this amazing venue with the most inspiring light and a fabulous team of talented Toronto vendors.  This is the first part of 3 shoots from our work at The Great Hall, and I already can’t wait to share the rest with you!” SEE FULL STORY
