The venue hunt is always the biggest puzzle piece to a wedding and from the moment my husband and I walked into The Great Hall, it was love at first sight! The venue has such a wonderful energy and the most wonderful Victorian charm (stunning banisters, chandeliers, gold radiators, and all the details, details, details!), yet updated with all of the necessary modern amenities for an event (AC, state-of-the-art sound system, modern bathrooms, etc)…not to mention the stunning stage. We know that music would be the focal point of our wedding, so this space naturally captured our hearts since it is a music venue. Mark was our initial contact person and he was awesome to work with throughout the 1.5 years (we reserved quite a ways in advance). He had great insight for everything from rentals, to bands and little tidbits along they way (like how much pipe and drape is needed for a specific area and how much should it cost). He was also flexible and approachable, which is always helpful! This venue is amazing in every way and just really cool and easy to work with! It’s great for someone who has a vision and loves a blank slate (they do not provide the rentals, that’s up to you…but they have recommendations). Also, use AllSeated for your seating plans, it’s amazing! The items that you will need to consider, which Mark (or someone on the team) will fill you in on, is the landmark fee (the value of all food that comes in will be taxed this fee-it adds up, but this is how these historic spaces are able to stay in our community), venue rental fee (very reasonable) and bar fee (alcohol always adds up-there are options). We also worked with Victoria leading up to the event and the day of and after, she was absolutely a joy to work with…so lovely and helpful! I highly recommend the venue, if you are on the fence…you won’t regret it!

We had my daughter’s wedding at the Great Hall. The Venue is fabulous and fit perfectly with our vision. It looked spectacular. Victoria at The Great Hall was very accommodating, helpful and easy to work with. All the staff were extremely pleasant on bar and eager to assist loading in and out or in anyway they could. We loved it and cant imagine having had it anywhere else.

Easily one of the most, if not the most beautiful venue in Toronto! Not only is the venue gorgeous, but the team there is amazing too. From coordinating deliveries, pickups and photos, they were always willing to be flexible and accommodate our requests. On the day, the team was attentive, professional and made our day truly special.

You both were truly on point all day, and every day leading up to it, and we couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out. I’m sure we aren’t privy to any hiccups along the way, and I think that shows how pro you both are haha thanks so very much again, it was a fantastic day and you both contributed to that.
All the best!

I literally do not have words for how amazing, organized, friendly, kind and awesome at planning weddings, the great hall staff is. Not only is this venue beautiful, with its many rooms and vintage feel, but Mark and the other members of the team are all so knowledgeable about the great hall, it’s features and how to throw your dream wedding. From the very beginning they were able to provide accurate numbers and ideas for us, which made the planning process easier. They took care of the AV, lights etc, and unlike most venues the socan, av, security (etc) fees are included in the price they quote! they were so easy to communicate with, and overall were very accommodating with any of our requests. I would for sure recommend this venue, for it’s absolutely beautiful layout, ease for cocktail hour and photos, and above all the incredible staff!

We are so incredibly lucky that we stumbled upon the Great Hall. Walking down Queen Street one day we passed by it, looked in and were hooked. We met Mark Foster from the beginning – a true professional. An absolute pleasure to deal with. He made every accommodation possible for us, was so relaxed and easy going.
The venue itself was absolutely incredible. The acoustics are second to none for a live band. The location and the look were perfect. The cost extremely reasonable. The bar package they offer is fantastic. Mark and his crew accommodated our signature drinks without a hitch during cocktail hour. Their alcohol selection is very high end, and they are extremely flexible.
If you are looking for an original, one-of-a-kind wedding venue look no further then then Great Hall. Their staff are an absolute pleasure to deal with and you will not regret using this place to host the most important night of your life. We will never forget our wedding there, nor will any of our guests.
Hats off to Mark and his team.
Thank you so much.

The Great Hall was the perfect venue for our perfect day. Mark was always quick to respond to our emails and always accommodating and available when we wanted to come by. Whenever we had a request he figured out a way to make it happen. The new renovations looked absolutely stunning!

We just wanted to thank you again so much for you hard work and helpfulness. We truly can’t say enough positive things about our experience with you and choosing the Great Hall as our wedding venue. From the first inquiry to the day after the event, you guys were the picture of friendliness and professionalism, and really went above and beyond to accommodate all of our requests. Everyone was impressed with the character, comfort and beauty of the hall, and it made our wedding seem much more extravagant than it actually was! You’ll also be pleased to hear that a couple of our friends seem to have caught the romance bug, and have asked us all about renting that space for their own special day…

We just wanted to say thank you for everything. We had the best time at our wedding, and were super happy with the venue. We feel so lucky we got to celebrate in such a beautiful and unique place. And working with you and your team was great – so easy, calm, and laidback. It just made everything so stress-free!

We had The Great Hall in mind as the ideal place to host our wedding as soon as we entered the space to see a live show several years ago. From the day we started working with The Great Hall’s team all the way leading to the event, we were impressed with not just the team’s professionalism and kindness, but their willingness to help us make the event unique and in our style; they offered advice and ideas as well as encouraged our own creativity in making it what we wanted it to be. The Great Hall is an incredible space full of history and character, and we have nothing but great things to say and are thrilled to continue to hear from our guests how the venue was “totally us” and really made the night all that more incredible. The venue itself also shaped the fashion in which we planned our event ï¼Œalso take care of our wedding gown– it wasn’t just our wedding, we threw a live show for all our friends and family featuring local Toronto artists and friends. The folks at The Great Hall helped us make that happen, and were enthusiastic, encouraging, and supportive of helping us find ways to make all our ideas work.
