Historic. Affordable. Refined.
Please note that weddings are only hosted at Oakham House between the months of June to Mid-August.
Oakham House offers you a refined, intimate and full-service wedding venue, right in the heart of Downtown Toronto; at the Oakham House you offer your guests the amenities of a fully restored, finely appointed, and historic setting that is both easy to get to and close to everything.
Originally constructed in 1848 by renowned architect Sir William Thomas, the Oakham House has lived several lives; as a personal residence, as a rooming house for young men, and as the centre of student life at the Ryerson Polytechnical Institute. Today, the Oakham House has been renewed and revived. In December of 2009 the Oakham House began its renovation so as to enhance the natural attributes of this historic building, with exposed brick, lots of natural light, and high wooden beam ceilings, our rooms combine new and old in a clean and contemporary way, one which promises to excite our clients and their guests. Along with offering not only a charming and beautiful atmosphere for your special day, Oakham House is also the perfect location to host your Stag or Stagette party. With a convenient downtown location, and a warm, inviting atmosphere the Oakham House is the perfect venue for weddings of up to 80 guests.
