Description

Don't hesitate and contact the Strathmere today if your are looking for a venue that is perfect for smaller sized weddings, they still have available dates for 2018!

Facilities and capacity

For over 38 years, Strathmere has been host to weddings from 15 to 250 guests. Strathmere has three very beautiful and unique venues, including The Inn, The Lodge and The Garden House. Careful thought and planning was given during the development of the 200-acre property to place each venue away from the others and set within its own private property, offering distinct views and landscapes to each, and ensuring that every couple has complete privacy and exclusivity of their favourite venue.

Each venue has its own beautiful outdoor ceremony site, with arbour, bench seating and a signing table. Their goal is always to have your ceremony outdoors, but in case of inclement weather and during the winter months, they set up for an indoor ceremony in front of the fieldstone fireplace.

Services offered

They will assist you every step of the way. Their Reservations Team will assist you with questions as they arise. You will also be assigned an experienced Wedding Coordinator one month prior to the wedding day to finalize all of your details and to be there on your wedding day to ensure everything runs beautifully.

The facility rental fees include the following services:

  • An overnight guest room for getting ready and to spend the night (evening weddings only)
  • An Outdoor Ceremony (from April to November) with arbour, benches and signing table
  • An Indoor Ceremony fireside, for winter weddings and inclement weather
  • An experienced Wedding Coordinator to assist prior to and on your wedding day
  • The Retreat Team of beauty and health experts to help you plan spa services, wedding day make-up, and other relaxation experiences for you, the wedding party, and your family and friends.
  • Ivory linen lap length cloths and napkins for A la Carte weddings, or ivory floor length linens and your choice of coloured napkins when choosing a Wedding in Season, lanterns with LED pillar candle, flatware, glassware and dinnerware, tables and chairs, DJ table, gift table and cake table. There are also many options to upgrade your linen, and arrange for special furnishings.
  • Romantic vintage lighting over patios for your first dance “Al Fresco”, mini-lighting on split rail fences, and entrances decorated with urns filled with flowers and edibles throughout the growing season.
  • The beautiful Heritage Garden, the fountain, and so many other pockets of pretty areas for photographs.
  • Welcoming and professional staff, and free guest parking.
  • A king bed guest room for the wedding night (evening weddings only)

Cuisine

Working within their philosophy of “Fresh, Local and Seasonal”, Executive Chef Angelo Camposarcone and Lead Grower Colin Lundy work hand in hand, offering Field to Plate menus for guests to enjoy. Breaking from tradition, Strathmere works exclusively with a Butcher for all of its meat, a Fishmonger for its fish and seafood, a Fromagiere for cheeses and a Local Egg Farmer, to mention just a few.

Accommodation

Strathmere has 34 guest rooms, all uniquely decorated and overlooking our 200-acre estate. While they have many individual guest rooms, there is also the option of reserving a private house for family and friends to spend quality time together while getting ready for the big day or visiting their property.

Amazing!!!!

We held our wedding at Strathmere's old farmhouse, now called The Inn. I can't say enough good things about the food, the service, and the beautiful location. Strathmere's Coordinator, Mel Workman, ... Read more was a Wonder Woman. Without apparent effort, she made everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, happen exactly as it should. She went out of our way when our wedding cupcakes arrived in a gooey mess of icing, having been jostled in the box en route to Strathmere. Mel ensured that the hard-working kitchen staff removed the icing from every cupcake and re-applied it, with appropriate garnishes. They looked beautiful. Perfect. Luckily I didn't hear about the near-fiasco until after the gorgeous tier of cupcakes was served after the plentiful and delicious buffet luncheon. I highly recommend Strathmere for a wedding reception.

A perfect wedding

Having our wedding with Strathmere was an absolutely pleasure from beginning to end. The setting is rustic and picturesque, on a sprawling country property. We had our wedding in the Inn, a historic ... Read more house that had just been nicely renovated. The service staff were extremely courteous and attentive. Food was locally sourced and very tasty. Great drink selection as well. Special thanks to our coordinator Mel who constantly went above and beyond to guide us through our evening and accommodate our every request! She stayed with us from beginning to end and made sure the whole thing went off without a hitch. It was nice to be in such good hands so that we could just enjoy the moment and make some great memories. Very highly recommended!

Amazing to work with from day one

Strathmere was our wedding venue, they were great to work with from day one. The only disappointing thing was we booked 2 years in advance and we had 2 price increases since we booked! Otherwise Lisa ... Read more our wedding planner was incredible, we couldn’t of asked for a more supportive person! She definitely helped make our day so much easier and run on schedule! The lodge was beautiful with all the new upgrades, and since there was no wedding the day before we were able to set up before hand and not stress the day of.

Having a wedding ... Read more planner included in the service really helped with the last minute details we had forgotten about. They were very accommodating and allowed a few extras since we were the only wedding on suite that day. Wonderful venue!

What an amazing venue. We wanted an all-in-one type of venue to make things more simple and seamless. It was perfect for us. They have ample rooms available for out of town guests, a spa on-site where ... Read more you can get get a bite to eat, get a manicure and makeup done. The food at the reception was amazing. They make everything from scratch. The ceremony site is very well maintained and was so beautiful for our outdoor Fall wedding. Our wedding co-ordinator was very helpful with answering all our questions and letting us know the timing of events. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We got so many compliments on how gorgeous the venue was and how delicious the food was. I couldn't imagine having been married anywhere else!
