Graydon Hall Manor, North York Reviews (6)
We had a rough time with planning our wedding with Graydon Hall. From the time we signed the contract to the actual wedding, our event coordinator changed 3x over 14 months. It was pretty unsettling and people changing jobs can't be avoided but it definitely reaffirmed that we needed to hire our own wedding planner because we couldn't rely solely on the GHM coordinator to take care of everything. We also found the turnaround time for email responses were a bit slow and could sometimes takes weeks, and then response times were better closer to the date. GHM is also not very flexible in terms of negotiating anything as it is such an in demand venue.
The food is delicious and the portion sizes are HUGE. All of our guests were impressed by the meal and we were pleased that everything was exactly the same as our tasting. The wait staff is also incredibly attentive and made sure lunch was served quickly and smoothly.
While we had some hiccups during the planning process, the day itself was still executed perfectly and we couldn't be happier with how amazing our wedding day turned out.
We and our guests were made to feel so welcome that it felt like we were celebrating at our own family home. The wait and service staff were virtually invisible, except for when you needed something, and then it was like they had already anticipated exactly what we needed and were there to help. The bar staff even recognized and said ‘hi’ to a few of our guests at a festival downtown the next day!
The entire day flew by in a flash, and everything was so perfect that we didn’t stop smiling for days - and our family and friends are still raving about the experience! Thank you so much to Keith and the wonderful team at Graydon for making our wedding an unforgettable experience.
The food is excellent! They even knew we would be really busy on the day and sent food to our rooms so we wouldn't go hungry!
The staff at Graydon Hall did everything they could to make our day perfect!
We had a long list of small tasks for them and they executed each one! They set up our candy bar the way we asked, they got our table seating chart and actually cut the edges so it would fit into the frame we had. The most amazing thing about their service was, when at the end of the night, I went over to start packing things up, the staff told me to go back and enjoy my night. When the night was over, they had boxed up everything and packed it into our limo (Yes! Everything was accounted for when we got home)!!!
People may tell you that the venue is expensive, but you definitely get what you for and it ends up being worth every penny!
If you are thinking about getting married here, ask for Jacqueline! She is an amazing event designer!! We didn't have a wedding planner, so we sent her 1,000 emails with so many small requests and she was just on it! She even did research for us when we were looking for specific things for the wedding! On the day of, she got down and was running everywhere to make the day go smooth! She even helped the boys put on their boutonniere and fixed their pocket squares for them. She will 100% make your dream wedding come to life!
Graydon Hall made every little detail go so smoothly! They did everything they could to make sure that the day was perfect! They even made it stop raining and bring out the sun for our garden ceremony :)
food was really nicely prepared and delicious!
As you are aware, my wife and I held our Reception to celebrate our 55th Wedding Anniversary (and our significant Birthdays), on Sunday 10th June. That everything went so well was, in no small measure, due to the overall management and control by our Event Designer, Jacqueline Rogers. We consider ourselves very fortunate that Jacqueline set up our initial appointment to visit the Manor for our very first time. Right from the beginning, she gave us a convincing presentation of the potential of the Manor to accommodate our requirements.
She then followed up with a choice of set-up plans, which, even when we made the decision, she fine tuned to our benefit. When it came to the selection of the food, she was extremely helpful and her experience was evident in the choices that she suggested. This was especially so when she advised on the numbers of each item, as we had no idea and had to rely on her totally. Even on other matters, like the TV set-up for our DVD, Easels for our displays, choice of the Harpist, suggestions regarding flowers for the tables and the celebration cake itself, her advice was invaluable
All the time she expressed nothing but confidence that everything was going to go well and so, it was with great peace of mind that we arrived for our Reception. Having Jacqueline there throughout the afternoon was a great comfort to Sheila and I, as we knew that she was in control and making sure that all of the plans were met. We cannot thank her enough as, going by their comments when leaving, everyone was impressed by the Manor, the extremely timely and attentive service by the staff, there were many kudos to the Chef for the food and wine and just the very pleasing atmosphere. In the next few days afterwards, we received many "Thank You" cards, emails and telephone calls from the guests, emphasising how much they had enjoyed the Reception and complimenting Sheila and I on, as one guest put it, hosting such an "Elegant Affair." After all of the guests had left, Jacqueline had set out a table in the shade on the terrace, with food and wine, so that we could sit back and relax and just continue to enjoy the after-thoughts of the event that we had just experienced at Graydon Hall Manor.
We would just like to add that we had many, positive comments on the young staff members, and the fact that there was someone to, not only, greet the guests at the door, but even at the gates, someone to help across the courtyard some of our more elderly guests. Like ourselves, our guests were very impressed with the Manor and the gardens, as only one or two out of the 70 had ever been there. So full marks for all of the Manor staff; Jacqueline and her assistant, Bill, the Master Chef and his kitchen staff, the servers, the set up crew and anyone else who was involved in making our Celebration Reception such a resounding success.
