Ultimate Toronto Wedding

The National Club was the ultimate host in every capacity for our wedding. My husband and I were married on June 3, 2017, and it was the perfect Toronto setting. We had guests from all over, near and ... Read more and overseas, and it was an amazing experience for anyone. This is a private club and a Toronto heritage landmark. Our guests were extremely excited to have access to the club and see what is behind the big beautiful doors. Our ceremony was at our parish in the west end of Toronto. Upon arrival, guests were directed to the rooftop patio for hand-passed appetizers. This really set the tone, and some of our guests are STILL raving about this detail. Having access to any rooftop overlooking the financial core is extremely rare. Guests were then directed to the main dining room on the 2nd level. The food was excellent. Cooking prime rib to everyone's tastes for approximately 130 guests is a feat, but the staff nailed it. Our guests also had the option of chicken or vegan. All of the food for our wedding was made in house, including our beautiful wedding cake, which looked like something out of a wedding magazine. After dinner, guests were directed up to the 3rd floor - the "Red Room". The National Club put down a dance floor for us, and our DJ's equipment was no issue from an A/V perspective. We danced the night away, and had delicious late night food including sliders, pizza, and fries. My husband and I stayed at the Club that night, as did some of our wedding party. Words cannot express my gratitude towards the National Club team. Renata Zaborowski supported us in every capacity to ensure that this was the best day of our lives. Chef, the kitchen, serving and bar staff, with special mention to Jose Sorto, were unbelievable. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

First class all the way!

We couldn't have imagined a better venue, food/drink service, staff, and overall experience for our wedding day. The coordination by Laurie Farnum was outstanding and the service from the entire staff ... Read more staff on the wedding day was first class as always. Thank you again to all at the National Club!
