The Globe and Mail is known for its national newspaper. How and when did the Globe and Mail Centre get started?
The Globe and Mail have produced events for many years in venues across the country. When we were making plans to move into a new headquarters, The Globe wanted to create a space to welcome visitors, partners and bring events in-house to a beautiful, state-of-the-art environment. We are now proud to offer a space to host these world-class events and as well as a wide range of business events with partners. When we are not hosting weddings, we host all kinds of thought-provoking conferences, as well as galas, receptions, and more.

Can you tell us a bit about the most memorable wedding you have ever hosted?
Choosing the most memorable wedding is difficult because we have hosted such a wide range of incredible weddings and they are all so different. Fleur Weddings Fleur Weddings is a speciality wedding planning company focusing on the needs of Chinese clientele. More | Message planned one of the more memorable weddings that comes to mind. They always think outside the box and for this particular wedding, they had a very unique setup that included a huge ‘S’ shaped table and beautiful rose floral arrangements adorning the tables. It was stunning and a totally new dinner set up for the venue.

You must see a lot of weddings! What trends have been significant in 2019? What trends are you predicting will be significant for weddings in 2020?
In 2019, we have seen many bold statement pieces, from very bright, rich colors to lots of textures (such as lace and velvet) with linens and fabric. We have also seen very unique black wedding cakes that serve as additional statement pieces.
As for 2020, overall, what I am gathering so far is that many couples and planners are mentioning that they want to keep things simple, clean, and elegant. My prediction is 2020 will be a year filled with lots of classic, timeless weddings.

 

What is your process when someone books The Globe and Mail Centre for their wedding?
When someone books The Globe and Mail Centre, they are introduced to one of our amazing event managers who begins the planning process with the couple. Depending on how far out the wedding is, they may get started right away. I make sure to connect with the event manager to provide them with all of the details regarding the couple’s special date that I have gathered throughout the touring phase. From there, our managers work closely with the couples/planners to set up site tours, provide any information as required. We then develop floor plans and an event order that serves as the ‘master document’ for the day of the wedding.
