An outdoor wedding isn’t for everybody. For the bride and groom looking to have their ceremony and reception inside, Toronto has a wide selection of indoor wedding venues to choose from. Here are seven innovative spaces.
1. Steam Whistle Brewery
A wedding reception in a brewery is a genius idea, and Steam Whistle’s three different spaces are sure to fit any wedding style. The Mezzanine is the smallest of the three, featuring picturesque views of the Toronto skyline, while the Gallery is the ideal cocktail space. The Hall, with its incomparable views and airy, loft-like space, can hold a massive wedding reception.
Steam Whistle Brewery is a chic yet rustic venue, and its 30-ft ceilings, large windows, and exposed red brick and pillars make the transition easy for any bridal style.
2. Artscape Wychwood Barns
Don’t let “barn” fool you: This former transit facility was repurposed into an event space, becoming one of the city’s trendiest indoor wedding venues. Its spacious interior is perfect for holding your reception and ceremony, while high ceilings, exposed brick, and ample natural lighting add drama. If you want the rustic look without going outside, Wychwood Barns is a great choice.
3. The Henley Room
Experience dreamy views in this architectural beauty, along with a spacious outdoor terrace that provides seamless entry from indoors to outdoors. Whether you’re planning an intimate reception or a larger one, this space can accommodate.
Massive windows provide beautiful lake views for a gorgeous waterfront wedding, with the ability to hold both the ceremony and reception onsite. The Henley Room boasts several all-inclusive features and its knowledgeable staff members are helpful partners who will ensure the big day goes to plan.
4. The MaRS Centre
The MaRS Centre promotes Canadian innovation, making it one of the city’s novel indoor wedding venues. Its state-of-the-art facilities, including a 62-ft. glass wall, will leave you and your guests in awe, appreciating the natural light flooding through. From the Atrium to the Auditorium, this downtown central venue can easily suit all of your wedding needs.
5. Hockey Hall of Fame
A space dedicated to hockey might not be your first thought for nuptials, but its historic architectural features will have you quickly looking past the puck memorabilia. If you’re both hockey fans though, this venue just makes sense.
Choose from several different spaces for a thrilling reception in the heart of the city. Its versatile rooms are available to rent separately or as one, whether you want to dine in the Great Hall or waltz through the City Concourse level. Celebrate the big day among hockey legends and artifacts in this glamorous, modern space.
6. The ROM
When Conde Nast deems this venue cool, you can be sure it’s one of the city’s trendiest indoor wedding venues. It’s lavish, it’s historic, and it’s a space that truly speaks for itself.
This cultural event venue can host a party as intimate as ten or a gala extravaganza as big as 2,000. High-vaulted ceilings and detailed stonework complete the museum’s artistic, historic vibe. A glam wedding inside Toronto’s famous museum is sure to leave a lasting impression.
7. Twist Gallery
Booking a wedding reception in a gallery is in vogue. Queen West is home to this eclectic art gallery, which is laid out as a beautiful, spacious New York-style loft. Its soaring ceilings and large windows overlooking city streets create a flexible, personable space that’s perfect for an intimate wedding. You’ll quickly see how the owner’s attention to detail and the room’s historic vintage vibes make Twist Gallery a trendy indoor wedding venue.
