It’s not all about who has been there before. The beauty of the campus architecture also plays a role in making this a special place for your wedding and reception in Toronto.

With a seating capacity of hundreds, it’s easy to set the right mood for the start of your lives together.
You’ll be surrounded by marble floors, oak walls, ornate ceilings, and some of the most intricate and eye-catching stone work in the area.

You’ll find the Great Hall with room for 425 people to be the perfect place to ensure your guests enjoy a reception that’s exciting, comfortable, and provides the opportunity for everyone to relax and celebrate with the happy couple.
Does the idea of having your wedding or the reception outdoors strike your fancy? You’re in luck! Hart House includes a beautiful outdoor quadrangle that can be arranged any way you like.
