One of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make when planning your wedding is deciding what type of wedding venue you want. The type of wedding venue will impact every other wedding choice, from how many people you can invite to wedding dress style. The great thing about the Greater Toronto Area is that there are many different wedding venue styles available!
Our Toronto wedding photographers have compiled the most common types of wedding venues available in the GTA.

One of the most classic types of wedding venues is hotel ballrooms. Toronto has tons of gorgeous hotels to host weddings at. From traditional ballrooms to more modern rooftops, there a lot of hotel options in the GTA.

Farm Wedding Venues
Just because we’re in a big city doesn’t mean you can’t have a more outdoorsy, rustic wedding. You’ll have to go a bit outside of the downtown core, but a few stunning farm wedding options are located in the GTA. These farm options are perfect if you want to escape the bustle of the city and have a more relaxed wedding venue.

Park Wedding Venues
There’s something so magical about outdoor weddings. Professing your love and commitment surrounded by nature is simply stunning. Some of our wedding photographers’ favorite wedding venues are park or garden ones. The wonderful thing about these venues is that they change with the seasons. A spring wedding at one venue will look completely different come fall time. You do have to take the weather into account, but it’s a small concession.
