Booking a wedding in 2020?

The MacLaren is happy to announce that we can now host wedding ceremonies for the remainder of 2020 for up to 50 people (including the couple and vendors). Please note that due to social distancing regulations, we will not be able to host receptions at this time.


We got married at the MacLaren this February and it was the best decision. The Staff was very organized, responsive to any of our questions, professional and willing to help out with anything we needed. They do limit the list of catering companies you can hire as they do not have a full kitchen. But the list caters to a diverse range of budgets and the MacLaren knows that these vendors know how to work with their venue so there won’t be any surprises which is great. It is absolutely stunning inside and you don’t need a ton of decorations which is nice! Our guests had nothing but good things to say about the venue. I would 10/10 recommend them to any of my family and friends!

We had our wedding here in August. The staff was easy to work with and the venue was beautiful. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding venue!

The MacLaren Art Centre was the absolute best choice for our wedding!! It was so gorgeous from the giant windows, to the gallery walls, to the exposed brick and the hardwood floors. Jess and the team at the MacLaren were so organized and really helped to make our day fantastic. Our guests kept raving about how beautiful and unique our venue was! I would 100% recommend the MacLaren Art Centre to anyone and I hope I get to go back for more weddings! 😀
