I wanted to put together a list of some of the most interesting wedding venues in Toronto so I decided to ask a couple of my favourite photographers, Michelle Yee and Rohan Laylor to help me with the post. Below are Toronto’s 10 most unique wedding venues, based on their thoughts, along with mine.
Why Indie Wedding DJ loves Michelle:
Michelle takes amazing candid shots, is super nice and easy going. Here’s her site: Michelle Yee, Toronto Wedding Photographer. She’s also included a few links to slideshows from the venues so make sure to check out her fantastic work.
Kortright Centre for Conservation
Michelle’s thoughts: They offer “green” wedding services, as well as a natural and lush backdrop that doesn’t require much decorating (it’s beautiful already!).
Stay tuned for a slideshow from a recent wedding that she shot there.
Capacity: 135 in the Glass House and 175 in the Main Hall
Website: Kortright Centre for Conservation
Address: 9550 Pine Valley Drive, Woodbridge, ON
Berkeley Field House
Michelle’s thoughts: It’s right in the city and is full of lovely little nooks and crannies and interesting architectural details that can make for some great photos! Slideshow of a wedding that she shot there can be seen here.
Website: Berkeley Field House
Address: 315 Queen St East, Toronto, Ontario
Michelle’s thoughts: An airy, open and well-lit space that also features industrial architecture and has since been converted to a community space that shows and supports local artists.

Why Indie Wedding DJ Loves Rohan:
Rohan has a very keen eye for space and architecture. He really knows how to shoot photographs in the urban sphere and always finds interesting spaces in the city. His love for the city can be seen in his portfolio: Rohan Laylor Wedding Photographer Toronto.
Royal Canadian Yacht Club (on Toronto Island)
Rohan’s thoughts: I like the fairy ride over to the facility and the view of the city from the Island is spectacular. It’s an old building with a lot of character and can cater small and medium and larger events. The grounds are very nice for an outdoor ceremony and offers great options for indoors. I also found that there were a lot of great options for wedding photos, not to mention that the facility can only cater to one wedding at a time so there will be that intimacy. The only down side is that you have to be sponsored by someone who is a member of the Yacht club if you want to have your wedding there, and your guests have to come and go by water taxi.
Capacity: max 250 guests
Website: Royal Canadian Yacht Club
Address: 141 St. George Street, Toronto, ON (mailing) Club is located on Toronto Islands’ North Island
Rohan’s thoughts: It’s an old church that has been converted to an event facility. It has a lot if character. I’ve seen the full gamut of events there, from weddings to film and music videos to art shows. It’s a very versatile space that can be tailored to suit your needs. I also like the fact that it’s located on Queen street East so it’s very accessible by car and the neighborhood offers good photo taking options.
Phone: (416) 361-9666
Address: 315 Queen St East, Toronto, Ontario
Rohan’s thoughts: It doesn’t have the outside character like the other 2, but the fact that this little place sits on top of the TD tower in the financial district, and the view of the city and the lake is stunning from this point. It’s an intimate spot with a cool address,not to mention it’s an Oliver and Bonaccini restaurant so you know the food is going to be phenomenal.
Capacity: 24-140 seated
Address: 54th Floor, 66 Wellington St. West, Toronto, ON
Indie Wedding DJ
Enoch Turner School House
Justin’s thoughts: This venue is on the smaller side but it is the first free school in Ontario. The building is historical, beautiful and located just a short streetcar ride from downtown.
Capacity: up to 150 guests
Website: Enoch Turner Schoolhouse
Address: 106 Trinity Street, Toronto, ON
Fermenting Cellar, Distillery District
Justin’s Thoughts: This is one of the larger unique spaces for weddings in the city. Although the distillery district is a bit of a touristy area, there is a good reason for this. I am drawn to historical spaces and I love the industrial chic feel of this room. Since it is large, there are many ways that the room can be configured.
Website: Fermenting Cellar
Phone: 416 203 2363
Address: 55 Mill Street, Toronto, ON
Miller Lash House
Justin’s thoughts: This Arts and Crafts styled house is a beautiful space with an amazing property. If your looking for a venue with interesting architecture, is not quite urban, but still within the city limits, then the Miller Lash House is the place for you.
Capacity: Indoors: 50 seated, Outdoors: 220 seated
Website: Miller Lash House
Address: 1265 Military Trail, Toronto ON
