Dreaming of a classic rustic wedding on a private farm? Cozy, warm, earthy – it’s that perfect ambiance for the most romantic event of your life. Whether you’re planning a pure country hoedown or a luxe rustic event, we’ve done all the legwork and laid out the GTA’s top favourite barn venues. But, before you get too excited just remember…
Barn venues are one of the fastest growing trends in the industry. Be sure to book well in advance if you’re dreaming of that perfect Saturday wedding! Don’t forget though – Friday and Sunday weddings are becoming increasingly popular. Not only is this a great way to snag the perfect venue but venues will typically offer a discount for these days!
FYI: There is a provincial law that requires barns being used for public gatherings (yes, that includes weddings) to comply with local fire codes for restaurants and halls. Make sure you check with the venue to ensure they have the proper certification!
So… With that in mind, we present EventSource.ca’s top wedding barn picks:
81 Charleston Sideroad Caledon, ON
Dating back to the 1800’s, Cambium Farms is located on 50 acres of beautiful land in the heart of Caledon hills. Although this venue has all the modern amenities and conveniences you would expect at a modern wedding venue, Cambium Farms still maintains its original beauty and enchanting charm. It features an awe-inspiring century old Barn, Carriage House, and Farmhouse: depending on the size of your event and your needs, you can choose to use the Barn or the Carriage House to host your event! Cambium Farms can accommodate up to 250 people indoors, and 500 people in total utilizing the outdoor tents and the Barn. If you choose to use the Barn, you’ll also get a country-style bar, DJ booth, and a lounge area for relaxation, dancing, and drinks. The Carriage House is set in the most beautifully landscaped surroundings and also offers a bar – perfect for post-ceremony dinners, receptions, and cocktail hours. Of course, what sort of farm wedding would be complete without a Farmhouse? At Cambium Farms, you can get ready for the big day in the most charming renovated house which has been home to generations!

Ready to plan the most elegant rustic wedding you could dream of? The Barns at Belcroft Estate, which date back to 1857, are the perfect venue for those of you with “beautiful surroundings” at the top of your wishlist. When your guests first arrive, they will be greeted by the natural beauty of an outdoor courtyard with abundant trees and a view of the ponds on the property – a perfect venue for your guests to mingle and not to mention, a dreamy location for those photography sessions, especially at night. The Covered Bridge is another beautiful aspect of Belcroft Estate – this three-bay pond and clear turquoise water is the stuff wedding dreams are made of! With seating for up to 165 guests (or 230 guests if you adjoin the main dining space with the dance floor), the Barns can handle both large and small weddings. Oh, but our favorite aspect of the Belcroft Estate? The Drive Shed, aka the “Man Cave’, a room that comes complete with a pool table, big screen TV, and 1955 Thunderbird – a sure way to keep your groom and groomsmen happy (and to set aside any of those pre-wedding jitters on the big day).
8560 Tremaine Road, Milton, ON
Are you a bride who wants your wedding to be utterly unique? Well, look no further than Gambrel Farm Country Heritage Park! Constructed from reclaimed wood, this barn is a blank canvas and waiting for your personal touch! The facilities are nestled beside the majestic Niagara escarpment and are surrounded by stunning cliffs, exposed tree lines, and a rich mosaic of plant life. If you choose to host your event here, you’ll also have full use of the park and many of the unique historical buildings on site (think: homesteads, carriages, and much more).
Located on stunning rural land, WaterStone Estate & Farms is another great farm venue in the GTA. Create beautiful everlasting memories with your guests surrounded by hundreds of acres of land, forest, and lakes and dance the night away under the soaring cathedral ceilings in the Grand Room. Experience the rustic but majestic banquet hall as you tuck into your dinner. The floor space of the Grand Room at the Waterstone can comfortably accommodate more than 150 guests as well your DJ setup. Feet aching from those heels? You can give those feet a rest and head to the Hunt Lounge bar for a relaxing and soothing evening drink.

Nothing gets my heart beating more than when our clients tell us, “it’s a barn wedding”. We hve so many gorgeous barns. And there is @southerpondfarms and @CenturyBarn in Bethany Hill, ON. Both stunning as well!
This is beautiful! My wedding is next may and I would love for my wedding to look like this.
Barn weddings are just gorgeous! They can be chic and elegant, but they can also be rustic and vintage too. I’ve been to many different barn weddings, and I just love how they can be designed to show each couple’s personality and style. Thanks so much for sharing!
Wow, this place is beautiful! I would absolutely love to decorate there. My name is Fran and I just started my own decor business. I have 10 years experience in the field; however Im looking to branch out to decorate different venues and areas. If any bride is getting married at a farm or burn and is interested please let me know. I will be more then happy to sponsor the wedding just to showcase my talent!
These are very unique and interesting venue ideas. Thanks for sharing.
Cambium Farms – gorgeous venue, but I hate to have to let it be known that their DJ service is absolutely despicable. The man they have in charge of it is absolutely incompetent when it comes to the services that he claims he will be providing. His attitude is extremely unprofessional & rude, & his lack of skill & expertise is unfortunate & regrettable. As gorgeous as this venue is in pictures, I cannot give them any form of recommendation due to the corruption of an extremely important part of our wedding night, and the lack of competence & eagerness on their behalf to fix what we were wronged of. The venue is absolutely picture perfect, their catering Cabral was beyond delicious. However the way that we were treated as clients whom like every other couple choosing to spend their money & time on the most important day of their lives, is just so disappointing & a colossal shame. I’d love to say that our music didn’t have gaps in between songs, our key moments were not ignored & missed, my father-daughter dance was to the correct song, & my wedding planner & bridal party were not spoken to rudely & disrespectful… but unfortunately that is not the case. This venue is perfect for pictures, but I have to let this be known so that similar events won’t happen to another bride. The owners & management of the barn were sympathetic at first, but did not follow through on promises to resolve our problem. It’s unfortunate, because this venue is perfect on film so if that’s what you’re looking for you will be satisfied- I hope for other bride’s sake these issues will be resolved in the future & brides can make an informed decision & expectations will follow through.
Wow, this is so surprising to me. I’ve never done a wedding at Cambium but I’ve only heard wonderful things about it. When I did a site visit at Cambium a few months ago I was thoroughly impressed with the space and the degree to which the owners have considered every detail. The owner was polite, intelligent and thorough. Perhaps this was one of those unfortunate “one off” experiences?
Here are a few others to consider just outside the GTA: Honsberger Estate (Niagara); Hernder Estates (Niagara); Stonewall Estates Barn (Niagara); Southpond Farms (Kawartha Lakes); Sequel Inn (Creemore). Demand always exceeds supply, as Amy says, book early to try and get your preferred date.
Thank you, Christine! Excellent suggestions.
