When it comes to wedding venues, one of Toronto’s best kept secrets is The Albany Club at King and Church. Having been founded by none other than Sir John A. Macdonald, this charmingly warm and intimate historic venue, rich in stunningly hand-crafted details, is a throwback to the architectural artistry of yesteryear. One of the venue’s best features is that it caters to only one wedding at a time – a huge plus for couples, their families, and guests!

This past week, I was invited to drop by the space to learn a little more about the venue’s wedding offerings. A big thanks to the lovely Carmela Sagula for capturing all the stunning details.

The in-house catering team pulled out all of the stops for this event. We loved the array of colourful and delicious passed canapés — and the carving station was to die for! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, quick to offer a smile or kind word while keeping the food stations fully refreshed throughout the evening. These little touches truly help guests feel much more welcome.

Rounding out the main course, I also thoroughly enjoyed the incredible sweet table crafted by Dolcini by Joseph. Each delectable little treat was as pretty as it was delicious.

Couples who have booked The Albany Club can’t go wrong with any of the fine vendors on the preferred list. For example, Evolved Entertainment and Brent Miller LIVE kept the vibe fun and upbeat throughout the evening, taking turns playing crowd favourites.

Guests looking for an experienced and personable officiant were able to chat with Sarah Bunnett-Gibson Wedding Officiant and her talented team.

Hand lettering and calligraphy is all the rage, and the talented Doris Wai of Love Lettering thoroughly impressed guests with her Pinterest-worthy booth brimming with samples of her stunning work!

Ferris Wheel Press displayed the latest in stationery and paper goods, while Olga Pankova – Live Event Artist displayed and demonstrated her unbelievable live painting skills.

 The Loved One had a table display full of dainty and gorgeous pieces.

You gotta love an ice luge! Throughout the evening, the hospitality team poured a glasses of champagne through a custom ice sculpture, designed by our friends at Iceguys. Guests were also sure to grab their souvenir selfies from the lovely Angel at Snapz Photo Booth before heading out!

If you haven’t considered the Albany Club for your wedding, you’ve truly overlooked a gem in Toronto! Wedding guests will be wowed by the soaring, rich architecture and all the charming details found throughout the space. Hats off to the hospitality team for putting together another fantastic wedding open house – can’t wait for next year!
