The moment we stepped into the Enoch Turner schoolhouse in September of 2017, we knew it was the perfect venue for our wedding. The space is gorgeous and requires very little to “dress it up” for a wedding. The high ceilings, green beams and archways, and cathedral like windows in the grand hall gave a dramatic, ethereal feel to the ceremony – at night, the candles we had placed in the window sills and the strings of lights across the beams added a lovely ambience to the evening. (Note: We went through the venue to have the lights installed as they were less expensive than our catering/rental company for this task.) Everyone we spoke to leading up to the wedding was very responsive and helpful – especially Stacey and Ben who assisted us with all of our last-minute questions as well as keeping us looped in on when we could have access to the venue to complete some small set up ahead of the big day. A couple notes on logistics: - They are VERY strict on the SOP/Liquor License here because they are a Ontario Heritage Property; there was some confusion on how to/if we could serve some champagne that was gifted to us by my parents. Even though I flagged it several times ahead of the wedding, there was still a need for my dad to clear things with the venue and caterer before the wedding, small bump, it all worked out. - We had a total of 78 guests + staff and there was plenty of room in the great hall for the ceremony and dinner, we did have a live band though and had to remove a couple tables (one of them being the band’s table) before we started the live music portion of the evening so there would be room for a dance floor. - The bar area was a bit too small for all of our guests to hang out in while they changed over the room for the reception, it was a bit of a rainy day so not everyone was keen on going outside - we had people spill into the classroom after we had finished the legal needs in there after the ceremony - The caterers required a space in the corner on the north side of the hall, while the corner on the south side is ALWAYS used as storage – so keep that in mind when planning for the amount of space you may have. - Acoustics were great for live music – I heard some people say they had a wonky experience with sound in this venue, but we felt things sounded great – we did rent a proper PA though and have a sound guy FYI - If you’re looking for a “dance party” at the end of the night, I suggest you rent some coloured/flashing lights to create that mood.

Been here for two weddings. Great little venue with nice views nearby for photos. Sits about 100 guests and is very cosy and rustic. Lovely place for a ceremony and reception. Parking nearby on the street and at green P.

Sound is echoing so a spoken event received some mild complaints. Otherwise top notch.

When I was a kid I heard about the Enoch Turner Schoolhouse from a tour guide booklet, but just Never had the chance to visit it up until now! I guess it is Better Late than Never! Furthermore, this happens to be a historic site and museum owned by the Ontario Heritage Trust. The school was built in 1848 when it was known as the Ward School. During my visit I was shown the actual schoolhouse where they have their classroom and some other important artifacts on the walls. I want to personally Thank Alice McMurtry for taking the time to show ME around the Enoch Turner Schoolhouse and for helping ME make my Youtube Video back on Tuesday, January 9, 2018. Sincerely yours, Howard Paul Shore Visitor Executive, Volunteer Writer For Google And Tripadvisor Websites /HPS

Amazing venue! Attended a wedding there. It is a beautiful old schoolhouse perfect for a small-medium sized event. Very charming, and a lot of character.
