Tying the Knot? Venues in Whitby That are Perfect for Your Wedding and Reception
There’s so much to be done before a wedding and reception in Whitby can take place. One of the first decisions to make is where the events for your wedding day will take place. With a number of venues in the area, finding the right one may seem to be an overwhelming task. Here are a few suggestions that will make it easier to find the perfect venue and move on to other aspects of your wedding planning.
The Centennial Building
If the idea of holding your wedding and reception in a location with a long history, the Centennial Building is the ideal choice. Constructed in the early 1850‘s, the building served as the Ontario Courthouse from 1854 to 1964. The building was also the site used for the City Council meetings for much of the same time. Since the late 1960‘s the Centennial Building has been home to the Whitby Courthouse Theatre and served as a banquet facility.
You’ll find several spaces that are ideal for your wedding ceremony, even if you are planning on inviting a larger crowd. The banquet hall offers a neutral setting that can be transformed to create whatever mood you want for the reception. A full industrial kitchen is connected with hall, so there are no worries about how your caterer will keep the food flowing during the event. Thanks to the extensive renovation done to the building and the grounds around the turn of the 21st century, you will enjoy all the modern amenities while still making the most of the 19th century charm.
Jubilee Pavilion Banquet & Conference Centre
Have you been thinking in terms of having your ceremony outside and following with an indoor reception? This venue in nearby Oshawa is one of the best choices for that type of arrangement. The landscaping provides several excellent locations to set up for the ceremony.

Whether the plan is to invite only your closest loved ones or have a few hundred people in attendance, there are areas on the premises that will accommodate any number of guests.
Inside, you’ll find that the space set aside for larger gatherings is functional, easy to transform using any accents you like, and even has space for the team handling the wedding catering in Whitby to work their magic. Make the reception as formal or as relaxed as you like.
