Everything you need to know about getting married at The Meadows Catering in Stirling, Ontario
Prince Edward County Featured Wedding Venue
A wedding is a gathering. A specific moment you can shape (Priya Parker, The Art of Gathering). The venue for your gathering has a huge impact on how your gathering feels, how your guests participate, how you host. The Meadows Catering Stirling is an all-inclusive venue located just outside Prince Edward County in Stirling, Ontario. The Meadows is set on 27 acres of rolling hills and is family owned and operated. Kori and her team love getting to know each couple on a personal level to make their dream day come true.
Our couples who have chosen The Meadows Catering for their wedding day tell us that having everything happen in one place, the incredible food and working with Kori and her team were the biggest reasons they chose this venue. Below you will find all the information you need to decide if The Meadows Catering is the perfect place for your wedding gathering.
Why we love to photograph weddings at The Meadows
1. Our couples who get married at The Meadows feel relaxed going into their wedding day thanks to the pre-wedding planning and day-of wedding coordination.

3. The location options for portraits (couple’s portraits, family formals, wedding party) are endless. We will consult on your timeline to ensure you have plenty of time to get the photos you want, and to enjoy your wedding experience.
Locations within The Meadows for your Wedding Ceremony & Reception
Forest Ceremony Site
The forest ceremony site is new for 2021 weddings. We had the opportunity to participate in the first styled shoot at the new ceremony site and let me tell you, the tall trees and sunlight streaming through make this site absolutely magical. It will be able to accommodate up to 150 guests for a ceremony. Arch floral design by Rustic & Ritz. You can see our full family session from The Meadows Catering Forest here.
Wooden Arch on the Lawn Ceremony Site
These two permanent Wooden Arches can be used as-is or accented with florals. You have the ability to make these ceremony sites quite rustic or modern depending on your seating choice, florals and decor. These sites work well for late afternoon, or early evening ceremonies. You can see an example of a wedding ceremony in mid-afternoon on the lawn in this The Meadows Catering Wedding blog post.

Pavilion Ceremony/Reception Site
New in 2020, the Pavilion is a beautiful outdoor space to host your reception or wedding ceremony. The open sides ensure you’re able to appreciate the beauty of the grounds while being protected from sun, rain and wind.
The campfire areas and twinkle lights are magic as the sun goes down.
Barn Ceremony/Reception Site
The barn at The Meadows Catering is simply stunning. With the ability to host up to 150 guests this rustic-chic space can be customized to suit your aesthetic. As photographers, we love the twinkle lights and the neutral palette inside the barn as it works beautifully with our style.
