Have you heard of the concept of quiet luxury in weddings? It’s all the rage right now with celebrity weddings like that of Hailey Bieber, Crown Prince Al Hussein of Jordan, and Nicola and Brooklyn Beckham setting the trend. Quiet luxury is about creating a wedding that exudes elegance and sophistication, but in a subtle and understated way with guest experience at the forefront. Think of it as an anti-bling approach to weddings, where quality and craftsmanship take the center stage.
The Greater Toronto Area is the perfect place to embrace quiet luxury in weddings. There are so many venues that offer a balanced blend of elegance and intimacy. I consider a venue to be quietly luxurious if minimal decor is required to create a beautiful atmosphere for a wedding. One such venue is The Arlington Estate. Located in Vaughan, this stylish building boasts beautifully manicured grounds, tonnes of natural light and beautiful linen and furniture in-house.
Another venue that perfectly embodies the concept of quiet luxury is Graydon Hall Manor. With its historic mansion-feel, gorgeous outdoor reception space and stunningly manicured lawns, it’s the perfect place for a couple who wants a wedding that’s both chic and intimate.
If you’re looking for a venue that’s a little more traditional, consider The Omni King Edward Hotel. This historic hotel has been a staple in Toronto’s social scene for over a century, and it’s easy to see why. With its grand ballrooms and intricate details, it’s the perfect place for a couple who wants a classic and timeless wedding.
Regardless of your venue choice, remember that quiet luxury in weddings is all about embracing quality over quantity. It’s about creating an atmosphere that’s both elegant and comfortable, where your guests can relax and enjoy the celebration.

There are few venues with the sheer opulence and grandeur of the Crystal Ballroom in the Omni King Edward Hotel.
Dubbed the first luxury hotel in Toronto, its history of hospitality is unparalleled, much like the Crystal Ballroom itself. Every space in the Omni King Edward drips with style, but the newly reopened Crystal Ballroom is truly a space like no other. If you are interested in reserving the Crystal Ballroom for your function, it is important to note that the venue is considered one of the most-sought after spaces, and should be booked well in advance of your wedding or event.
The beautiful space underwent a $6.5 million renovation to restore the ballroom to its former state, with many modern touches, like the chandeliers and state of the art AV system. The history of the space is impressive, dating back to the 1920s with some of the most high profile events in the city happening in this decadent space.
My favourite features of the Crystal Ballroom are the floor to ceiling windows that wash the room in bright, sunny light, which make for stunning wedding photos. The space is approximately 5,000 square feet, and so can host gala-sized events easily. I also love that the space is completely private from the rest of the hotel. The hospitality team is amongst the best in the city, and the history of the Crystal Ballroom is both extensive and interesting, a fine talking point for guests. Fine art wedding enthusiasts, designers and anyone who is a fan of urbane, romantic space will want to check out the Crystal Ballroom as soon as possible!
