Are hard to find, yes? For a simple wedding ceremony, everybody standing (except Hart House), here are some ideas. Do try small restaurants. Almost ANY restaurant will be happy to accommodate a group for dinner or cocktails or brunch, but don't say 'wedding' until you chat about the room and food. Then say "small private event, with a short little ceremony". Do check hotel rooms! You can probably find a suite in most hotels, suitable for a meeting for a dozen or so - often with a view! Ask friends and relatives about Condo party rooms, or nice lounges they have seen, including, rooftops, back patios, all very suitable for a nice wedding. Or try:
Co-working spaces - CSI, etc. Book a meeting room.
Air BnB apartments with balconies
Restaurants with decks, patios, if you eat there after.
Good old Trinity Bellwoods (but you may have to share the space with the denizens of the park - animal and human
Pick a piece of waterfront that isn't owned already.
The Music Garden, Harbourfront (no chairs, 20 people). No shelter for rain.
Hart House Chapel 30 people. Also other small pretty rooms available.
Allan Gardens 12-40 people? No chairs. Lovely plants, and rainproof.
The Gazebo at St James Garden. 40 people, 1 hour bookings (lots of pigeons tho)
The Gazebo at Kew Gardens. 50 people.
Meeting rooms and pretty lounges at your local church, if they rent to outside groups - such as Bloor Street United Church. (But being renovated).
The Multifaith Centre at University of Toronto - lots of nice rooms for 6-100 people ask Mary (Chaplain at UofT) especially if you are staff or student.
Rectory Cafe on the Toronto Island - including their terrace.
Small terrace area and private room at Le Select Bistro
