Best. Night. Ever. We just had our wedding at the Berkeley Church December 31, 2019 and it was beyond what we ever could have imagined. Derek was our contact and our day-of coordinator and was an absolute saint! He was so helpful throughout the whole process and was so knowledgable about the venue and weddings in general. He was a huge asset to our wedding and we leaned on him a great deal for advice and contacts, etc. The staff was also incredible. They did an amazing job and we had 190 guests with welcome cocktails, coat check, NYE bubbles passed and had our ceremony, cocktails, and reception all at the venue. Also, we received many compliments from our guests that they loved the food! We certainly did at our tasting but it's so wonderful to hear it was also excellent for a big group. A huge bonus was we got to bring in our own alcohol and late-night food. We thought the venue looked gorgeous and we loved the character from day one. The ceremony space in front of the stained glass is particularly magical!

The main floor and mezzanine provide an open, welcoming space for large presentations and gala events. The 1871 Circa Lounge provides more intimate spaces for breakout needs and VIP areas. A great venue for any corporate event in downtown-Toronto.
This prestigious church provides an amazing ambiance and backdrop for product launches, corporate team building activities, client entertaining, meetings, and mixers.
