It’s always our absolute pleasure to work with the lovely Danielle of Shaw Events. Working together at The Gate House, a brand new luxury wedding venue now open in the heart of Niagara-on-the-Lake, was wonderful as always. Known for its historic buildings and tourist attractions, Niagara-on-the-lake is an idyllic spot for weddings, year-round.
Late-century and luxury: The perfect pair
Known as Wilson’s hotel in the 1700s, The Gate House partnered with 124 on Queen Hotel and Spa in the spring of 2019 to provide couples with an all-round experience. From luxury accommodation options to seasonally-inspired menus by the critically acclaimed Treadwell Cuisine, this venue is the perfect spot for you to exchange your vows.
The bridal suite provides plenty of natural light while on-site guest rooms offer the convenience of staying in Niagara on the Lake. The town boasts many historical landmarks which make for guest attractions as well as the perfect photo opportunities. We loved styling our ceremony gate arbour with fresh, neutral florals and local greenery to showcase the beauty of this space. Guests can gather for an intimate sheltered garden ceremony surrounded by the historic town and all that it offers.
Giving your guests the best.
The Gate House has a gorgeous patio overlooking Queen street. Pair that space with our custom champagne ladders and lounge rentals and you have a welcoming, luxurious cocktail reception for your guests. Florals and greenery can be added to the ladders to enhance the look and feel of the wedding and they can really add an elevated experience. Place them against a feature wall for a statement look, stand alone as a welcome piece along or pair them with other rentals we have available to give your guests the best.
Effortless elegance, elevated history.
The Gate House and its staff hold the history of its walls very highly. They also have the best interests of their couples and guests at heart. The venue offers an elevated celebration in its modern updates, while also honouring the centuries of history of the town. Our lounge rentals can help bring warmth and comfort to a cocktail space. Combine these pieces with our modern rental elements to add a statement, sentiment or simply a little extra flair to specific areas throughout the space.
Soft florals and a seasonally-inspired menu.
At the Gate House, natural light floods the reception space and the flooring is both light and modern. This really lends to a soft, spring design when it comes to the florals for your day. Neutral linens and textured tableware combined with statement glassware gives a modern feel to an otherwise classic design. Add in a seasonally-inspired menu by the talented Treadwell team, and you’ll end off your wedding day with an experience that will wow your guests and give you something to remember with all your senses for a lifetime.
