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 accomodate 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:
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.
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
