Shannondoe Farm is a picturesque country property located in Elgin County, Ontario. Established in 1968 as a horse farm and fish hatchery, the farm has grown into one of Canada’s leading Thoroughbred breeding operations. We are now making the property available for outdoor wedding and events.
While no longer an active hatchery, the spring-fed ponds remain and add to the special character of the property. The heart of the farm is a 6-acre pond surrounding a 1-acre island accessible by a large 100 foot-long bridge perfect for the bride to make a dramatic entrance. The walk over also allows for stunning pictures of the wedding party above the pond where swans and ducks swim freely. Shannondoe’s own Arika Everatt was married on that island followed by a Hollywood-style reception in a gorgeous tent under the stars. There is simply no better backdrop for your event in Elgin County.
The atmosphere at Shannondoe Farm is truly unlike any other. In addition to the stunning water features, the fully matured trees on the property add to the tranquil setting and offer guests and the wedding party plenty of shade. Horse pastures surround the entire area making the backdrop for memories and pictures truly unique. There is always a horse or two available for pictures too! The beautiful natural scenery is simply unattainable in an indoor hall.
We can accommodate a small ceremony or a full 250-300 guest wedding with a tent reception.
In addition to Weddings, the farm is available for Bridal Showers, Baby Showers, Family Reunions, Class Reunions, Business Meetings and Seminars, all in the quiet serene atmosphere of the gazebo amidst the trees. For larger functions a tent, either open sided or fully closed, can be also added. Check back soon for Birthday party offerings.
Please contact Arika Everatt-Meeuse for pricing and availability.
