Ancaster Mill Venue Overview

The Ancaster Mill is an iconic location that is synonymous with the little town of Ancaster. This old flour mill constructed in 1863 is the 4th generation after the first 3 were destroyed by fire. The building has been restored and modernized since it's purchase in 1972, and continues to run as a restaurant since 1979.

Venue Highlights

The Ancaster Mill is a one-stop wedding venue with preparation rooms onsite, a chapel and reception rooms. This wedding venue is part of the Pearle Events umbrella and you can expect the experiences and food to be high quality.

The venue contain 5 unique rooms ranging from 32 to 200 seating capacity with options for an outdoor or an indoor chapel ceremony. The rooms all feature a natural and rustic look due to the exposed beam architecture and large windows overlooking the surrounding property.

The property features many great locations for photos and open space for large family gatherings. A waterfall, a bridge, stream and wooded area, plus great building architecture and stone backdrops will give you lots of reasons to stay onsite and enjoy the day.

Due to a large amount of reception rooms, chances are you will be sharing your wedding day with other couples. Due to this, there needs to be more structure to the schedule in order to accommodate multiple weddings taking place; however, the staff at Ancaster Mill is fantastic and help with the planning.

This venue does not offer an overnight accommodations, so you will need to look for options if you require this.

My Recommendation

If you are a hands-off wedding planning couple who just wants to show up and enjoy the day without moving around too much, then I highly recommend The Ancaster Mill. The property is beautiful and the convenience of having everything onsite takes your attention away from planning and focuses it on enjoying. Be sure to drop by and check out their restaurant as well.
