Best Spots to Get Married in Markham, Ontario
There is just something about Markham. It is one of those places where people who were raised here plan to return (if they’ve even left) to raise their own children. Seems natural then that they want to come back to start that journey with their marriage celebration.
Markham has a wealth of wedding venues for every style, taste, culture and budget. It is another one of those multi-faceted reasons Markham is such a sought-after place to live.
Here are some of the best spots around town to say “I do!”
Markham Civic Centre
Whether something intimate and civil or grand and religious, the wedding services at the City of Markham can help you have your ideal wedding. For 2 to 150 guests, they have you covered with a variety of rooms and services. One room even has a small waterfall. Before the service your guests can admire the view from the indoor atrium and get those perfect pics in the beautifully landscaped Peace Garden.
Heintzman House (circa 1817)
Probably the earliest substantial adobe house in Ontario, this heritage home in Thornhill has had a fascinating history and served as a home to some important community members. Imagine making your own history at this unique venue. The grand ballroom, elaborate fireplace room and gorgeous gardens combine for a very special wedding. And the best part, all the funds raised go to maintaining this special part of community life.
Angus Glen Golf Club
Whether you enjoy a round on the greens or just want to enjoy the breathtaking grounds Angus Glen Golf Club offers a unique wedding experience for groups from 2 to 450. With the historic farmhouse, indoor double-sided fireplace and customizable cuisine (think: a Potato Martini Bar & Poutine Station!) this is a truly a distinctive venue right in the heart of our city.
Angus Glen is also a great choice for a first-rate bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or bachelor party.
People love Markham because it manages to merge old and new in such a marvelous way. Markham Museum is a perfect example and serves as an ideal location for your special day. The rustic backdrop is spectacular, the service is impeccable and the staff supportive. There are few places anywhere that can offer a ceremony in a church from the 1840’s followed by a reception in a modern hall or a tent under the stars.
Enzo Greco, Rental and Events Coordinator for the Museum says, “Some couples move away but their families still live in the city and they always wanted to get married here. We get requests from all over Canada, Europe, the States - even Australia and Hong Kong to get married right here in Markham.”
Last year the Museum helped 24 couples say “I Do”, 15 celebrate and over 60 others wowed with their wedding pictures. Book early to get your perfect day as the get snatched up quickly – kind of like those perfect partners.
