Introduction

Located in Toronto, Ontario, the Estates of Sunnybrook is the ideal venue for wedding ceremonies, wedding receptions and any social event. At The Estates of Sunnybrook, we are dedicated to making your special event unforgettable. We recognize that the memories of weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, bar and bat mitzvahs, graduations and family celebrations last forever.

The team at the Estates of Sunnybrook is here to make sure your memories are of a perfect celebration designed the way you envisioned, capped by an exquisite meal and served with graciousness and attention to detail. From an intimate birthday celebration for 6 to the ultimate fairytale wedding for up to 180 guests, the Estates of Sunnybrook will make your special event a stunning success.

Wedding Reception & Special Events Planning

We offer the finest in personalized service to assist you in planning your special event. From the moment you first contact us to discuss your requirements, one of our team members will work with you to plan a memorable celebration. The first step is to choose the appropriate space at the Estates. Our sales team is here to suggest the ideal space for your event, by considering the number of guests you expect, and the style of event that you want – a formal seated meal, an elegant cocktail reception, or a casual buffet or barbecue. Naturally, you will want to look at the proposed room, and you may want to bring some family members with you. We would be more than happy to book an appointment to show you our magnificent grounds.

Please call us at 416-487-3841 to arrange an appointment that is convenient for you. Once you have decided on the room you want, we will prepare a contract to confirm your space.

At the time you sign your contract, we will provide you with our planning checklist. This document will help you understand what will be required from you at certain points along the planning process. You will also receive an invitation to one of our tasting nights, where you will have an opportunity to sample items from our menu, and meet the staff you will be working with to finalize the details of your event.

Once your event is booked, you will be contacted by one of our catering representatives who will guide you through the rest of the planning process. Working with them, you will determine a menu and beverage selections that will suit your budget and your special event. You will also decide on an agenda for the event, and discuss the set-up of the room or rooms that you will be using.

Beyond helping you with all the details at the Estates themselves, our team can also connect you with some of the additional suppliers required for the perfect event. If you need a florist familiar with the Estates, a band, DJ, decor specialist or a photographer who knows where to find the most picturesque spots in our 40-acre gardens, we can provide you with a list of professional and reputable suppliers.

Facilities & Capacity

The Estates of Sunnybrook can accommodate events from 6 to 200 people or more. At the Estates of Sunnybrook, your special event will always take centre stage. We have three separate buildings, and accommodate only four events at any one time. Each event is entirely self-contained – each has its own entrance, reception area, dining room, coat check, washrooms, and gardens.

Timing

We offer two time periods for events each day:
Daytime events 11am - 4pm
Evening events 6pm - 1am

As the host, you are welcome to arrive 1 hour prior to the contracted time period. However we request that your guests not be invited before the beginning of the time period. If you require an extensive set-up time or wish to access the house or grounds prior to the stated times, this must be contracted at the time of your initial booking, or availability cannot be guaranteed.

If your event requires you to have access to your space for a longer period of time than listed above, we do offer a full-day rental. One of our Sales representatives would be happy to provide you with the details of this option.

Facilities Rental
Rental costs at The Estates of Sunnybrook vary by time period and size of room required. A Sales representative can provide you with pricing for the space and time that interest you.

If you are trying to keep your wedding costs in line, consider Friday nights and Sundays as a cost saving alternative over a Saturday night.

The rental cost covers the cost of the room set-up, including our standard tables & chairs, our standard white floor-length linens, tableware and candles, plus the cost of servers, bartenders, and a Maitre d’ dedicated to your event.

In addition to the rental cost for the room, there is a minimum revenue requirement for each room and time period. Your sales representative will advise you of the amount applicable for your event. Minimum revenue requirements include all food, beverage and miscellaneous items ordered from the Estates, but do not include room rental, ceremony fee, taxes, or gratuity.

Wedding Ceremonies

The Estates of Sunnybrook can offer wedding ceremony locations to any couples hosting their wedding receptions at the Estates. Our exquisite gardens offer some of the most picturesque settings in the city for outdoor ceremonies. The Arbor is a beautiful wooded setting available to wedding parties hosting their receptions in either ballroom at Vaughan Estate. Brides and grooms using our Courtyard Ballroom can enjoy the stone-walled Courtyard Patio as the location for their ceremony.

McLean House is graced with extensive landscaped gardens, which provide the ideal spot for an outdoor ceremony in this beautiful historical home.

The Coach House offers a secluded patio or small wooded area for wedding ceremonies.

Naturally, we also offer indoor ceremony spaces during the cooler months, or in case of inclement weather.

Our indoor and outdoor ceremony locations are provided with seating, a signing table (if required), as well as electrical power for your musical accompaniment if requested.

Your sales representative can provide you with cost of holding your wedding ceremony at The Estates of Sunnybrook. Read less

Our wedding at McLean House was beautiful, the people working there on the day of the wedding were wonderful, and the food was fantastic. I can't say enough positive things about the maitre 'd, servers, chefs and the rest of the team. We were hoping for an outside wedding, but it turned out to be raining. They set up for outside just in case, but were ready for having to move inside when that proved necessary at the last minute. The staff were also very accommodating in that the inside ceremony is usually upstairs, with the reception in the conservatory but because one of our guests was a wheelchair user, we had the ceremony in the conservatory, then they switched it over for the meal very quickly. The staff also was great at improvising a sweet table when it turned out they were given an earlier version of the contract/plan that had us providing a cake, rather than the sweet table.
We would have given the venue 5 stars (more if that was an option) but for the event manager that was assigned to us who we found somewhat difficult to deal with, particularly around our guest requiring accessibility. (That the venue was accessible was one of the reasons we chose it.) She was less accommodating during the planning than we expected, based on all the positive things we had heard about the venue (and other event managers). And although we had a written agreement on the sweet table, that didn't get to the person responsible on the day of the wedding.

I wanted to give them a perfect score because 1) the grounds and landscaping team do an amazing job and the venue is very nice and well maintained for the most part. 2) the wait staff and maitre'd were the best you could ask for. However, I went through 2 coordinators between securing my wedding date and the actual wedding and the first one was absolutely horrendous. She was practically useless. However, I got reassigned Laura who was much more patient and easy to communicate with. The venue is so inflexible and they really do not accommodate you or bother with making it special for you. A lot of the money goes back to the hospital so I understand that they have little Incentove to over perform but still... Was very disapointed when they couldn't accomadate certain seating with the video screen and other minor issues. I would still recommend it overall though and I had an amazing day and overall they were great.

The Estates of Sunnybrook was the perfect venue for us. After touring a few places both downtown and in North York, we decided on this place for a number of reasons. Upon first driving through the grounds, we were amazed at the greenery and the picturesque surroundings. The three houses all offered distinct and unique looks. After a wonderful consultation with one of the staff, we were offered the McLean House for our guest size of 70 people. She was very detailed and helped walk us through every step of planning. The menu selections are very accommodating, and our final selection of the McLean buffet couldn't have gone better. Everyone was pleasantly delighted at the food, and how good everything tasted, so many compliments to the chef. We were very fortunate to have a nice sunny afternoon wedding outdoors in the courtyard, and the setup was as we had asked for and expected. Bar staff and the maitre'D were very friendly and in helping us to set up on the day of the wedding. The only thing that was strange was that the waitress kept clearing the plates off tables when we weren't finished with the food, even after we told her we weren't finished with it. She had also taken some of the table numbers away before everyone was seated at the tables. Other than that, everything went very well without any hitches on the part of the venue. We can see why the bridal suite won awards, as it was very comfortable and luxurious.

I had a Sunday evening wedding at McLean House and my experience there was nothing short of amazing. Bill, our Maitre D', was so attentive and was there every step of the way to ensure that everything ran smoothly and that our guests were happy. The wait staff was also fantastic, and were such a great help with tear down at the end of the night. So many of our guests simply raved about how amazing the food was (many saying it was the best food they have EVER had at a wedding) as well as how gorgeous the Estate and gardens were. Thank you, Estates of Sunnybrook, for making my day so memorable!

We held our wedding at the Estates of Sunnybrook in the Vaughan Estate (main ballroom) in July 2015. What an amazing venue this was! Laura was an incredible help and quickly and patiently answered our numerous emails leading up to the big day.

The venue itself is stunning! It has a beautiful charm to it that we fell in love with from our first visit there. We held our ceremony in the arbour, a beautiful spot that had seats for about 120 guests. The arbour was surrounded by big trees which provided much needed shade on a very hot, humid day. Our guests couldn’t say enough about how stunning the venue was.

The staff were all very friendly and easy to work with. They were very professional and many of our guests commented on how great the bartender was!

The food was delicious too. There were many great canapés to choose from, but we especially like the grilled cheese sandwiches, the grilled chicken skewers, and the pulled pork sliders. All of the entrees were amazing, and although I’m not a vegetarian I particularly liked the portabello mushroom ravioli…it was delicious! We had many compliments on the late night poutine station as well.

If you’re considering this venue for a wedding you must see it! It was a day that we’ll never forget and we are so happy with our decision to have our wedding there.

I had my wedding at the McLean House in August 2015. The Maitre'd and staff were very helpful and went the extra mile to help set up for the special day. Rumour has it that our Maitre'd even helped the groom and his men put on their boutonnieres. Overall, we were right on schedule, and the timing was perfect for each aspect of my wedding. The gardens where the ceremony was held was beautifully manicured. When our photographer arrived super early, the staff eagerly took her for a tour of the estate and showed her all the beautiful locations to do our photoshoot. And the food...delicious and great portion size! I would recommend the McLean house to everyone seeking a location to hold their special event!
