Looking for your dream venue with an easily accessible location? Look no further than the Fairmont Royal York! Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, Ontario, the venue just celebrated its 90th birthday. In the midst of their new renovations, we sat down with the Fairmont Royal York to get all the details.


What are some of the key features of Fairmont Royal York? 
Pair the central location and timeless character of the building with unparalleled service, and you have Toronto's essential experience. Fairmont Royal York has four unique ballrooms that can accommodate weddings starting at 100 guests and up to 700 guests for a ceremony and a seated reception. Hosting a wedding at the landmark hotel allows for couples and guests to enjoy a well-rounded hospitality experience that includes stunning recently renovated public spaces like the lobby, luxury guest rooms, dining venues and the close proximity to city experiences on our doorstep.

Can you tell us a bit about the most memorable weddings you have ever hosted?
We have hosted countless special and unique weddings, so it is tough to narrow it down! We did host a wedding recently that was planned by Melissa Baum Events that offered a few WOW factors throughout the evening. For the ceremony, pink confetti cannons were set off during the couple’s first kiss. They created and built a massive custom dance floor filled with flowers that was such a unique centrepiece for the room. To top it off, they produced an infinity room as an enhanced photo booth experience for guests to enjoy as well.

Tell us about wedding trends in your line of work. What trends have been significant in 2019? What trends are you predicting will be significant for weddings in 2020?
There has been a growing focus on the “getting ready experience” for bridal parties and how to make it personalized. We are also finding increased interest in where our food comes from, whether or not it is sustainable and ways to be more eco-friendly. From a décor perspective, we are noticing that our couples have been playing with textures and colours in their tablescapes. This trend enables a couple to play around with our classic and refreshed space to make it authentically theirs.

When speaking with our 2020 couples, we have certainly received an enhanced focus on the customization of their food and beverage offerings. We are frequently asked about how to infuse cultural influences into the menu throughout the evening and how we can present these dishes or beverages in creative ways. Lighting and production is a notable mention as a lot of couples are looking for ways to take their vision to a level above the standard linen and floral arrangements. 

What is your process when someone books Fairmont Royal York for their wedding?

Every new inquiry is managed by our Social Catering Sales Manager, who begins the conversation by gathering details about the couple and their overall wants and needs for their special day. Based on the guest count, date preferences and overall wedding requirements, we send a full custom proposal outlining how best the hotel can accommodate the celebration. We welcome couples and their families to visit the hotel to experience the guest's arrival flow, the amenities, guest rooms and, of course, event spaces. Once a couple finalizes their wedding date with a contract, they are connected with a dedicated and experienced wedding specialist who is the liaison and resource with extensive experience in wedding coordination at Fairmont Royal York. On the special day, our dedicated and enthusiastic banquet team springs into action, seamlessly bringing the plans to life!

What is Fairmont Royal York currently working on, and what’s next?
We are very excited about the highly anticipated makeover of the Imperial Room as it is the last of our four ballrooms to receive a refresh early in the New Year. This soft renovation will include a transformative design, reflected in new carpeting, drapery and fresh paint. While giving a stunning new look to one of our most famed spaces, the historical features of the room will still be preserved, such as the chandeliers, the stoic marble pillars and its iconic stage. 

Is there anything else you would like our readers to know about Fairmont Royal York?
We have had such an incredible 90th year, not only with the debut of our new dining venues and revitalized meeting and event spaces but with the overwhelming support of our guests and clients on our new look. We can't wait to launch our most exclusive luxury suites yet in the New Year – our Legacy Suite collection – for even more personalized, luxury accommodations perfect for the next generation of honeymooners and elite guests looking for the highest level of luxury and service.
