A full-service, historic venue with more than a dozen unique spaces including a stunning outdoor quadrangle, 425-guest Great Hall, stained glass window chapel and a 500-seat theatre. Featuring vaulted ceilings, travertine and marble floors, oak timbers, hand-crafted stonework and ornate ceilings and corbels, Hart House is an architectural marvel. Centrally located on the downtown campus of the University of Toronto, this 100-year-old building has hosted royalty, heads of state, celebrity galas, conferences, performances, receptions and some of the most romantic and elegant weddings in Toronto. A favourite of wedding photographers, Hart House serves as the backdrop for engagement parties and weddings year-round. Winter weddings with a walk down a pristine snow-covered aisle followed by a reception by a roaring fire. Summer weddings when the garden is in full bloom. Even rain-drenched weddings take on a magical quality at Hart House. More than a venue, Hart House also boasts a full-service culinary experience. A Red Seal Certified chef, Marco Tucci is a master of his craft, taking an elegant yet novel approach to every dish. Overseeing over 1000 events annually, he has prepared meals for diplomats and luminaries including Margaret Atwood, Donovan Bailey, Romeo Dallaire, Irshad Manji, Bob Rae, and Mary Walsh, as well as a host of special guests and renowned artists at the Toronto International Film Festival.

I love this location because of it's indoor / outdoor photo options. Great if it's a heat wave and you need an AC break or if it's raining.

Went to the PostSecret show hosted here with a friend. It was a bit confusing locating the building as it was our first time at UofT but the event itself was very fun and enjoyable. Loved the architecture of the building!

Architecture, events and activities. Nice quiet inner courtyard. Wish there is more eatery beyond the restaurant.

I photographed a wedding at Hart House in 2003 and I loved the venue so much that I decided to have my own wedding there in 2005. They were excellent to work with as a photographer and of course, I got amazing treatment as a bride. I had a winter wedding and this venue was absolutely perfect with it's cozy fireplace, gothic architecture and high ceilings. We also had a lot of music at our wedding and the acoustics were fantastic. It probably helped that a piano tuner came in before the music began. Even though my wedding took place in February, we still managed to get photos outdoors!
The wedding I photographed in 2003 took place in the summer and they made use of the courtyard as well as The Great Hall.
In 2015, I photographed another wedding in the smaller music room there. That was also the perfect place for a ceremony and the grounds of Hart House are one of my favourite places to photograph people in all of Toronto.

Hart House holds a special place in my heart as I spent a lot of time there during my University days at U of T. When Sarah & Nick asked me to plan their wedding at Hart House, I was very excited about the opportunity. The venue was very special to them as well, as they had met their while attending U of T. From start to finish the staff at Hart House was welcoming and professional making it a pleasure to work with them. If you are looking for a unique and stunning historic space to host your wedding - and one that offers an outdoor garden space with magnificent architecture and charm (something which is hard to find in downtown Toronto) - you should definitely consider Hart House.
