Your Host

Built by hand in 1881, our family has been the heart of Century Barn Weddings for over seven generations. Our ancestors emigrated from Cavan, Ireland in 1823 and settled in Cavan, Ontario as farmers. Since then, each generation of our family has farmed the land, but now, with a twist!

About 20 years ago, we breathed new life into our century-old farm estate after a friend asked about using the barn for her wedding. This is where the transformation began and our iconic wing doors were painted by our very first bride.

Since then, our family has been dedicated to transforming the barn into an elegant and rustic outdoor wedding venue that will make clients and guests feel at home on their special day. We strive to offer a creative alternative to the traditional banquet hall wedding experience.

Our mission is to provide exceptional customer service from the moment you inquire until your wedding day is complete. We are located just outside of Peterborough, halfway between Toronto and Ottawa, a short drive from Durham Region including Oshawa, Ajax, Bowmanville, Pickering, and Whitby.

Our top priority is to support you in hosting the wedding of your dreams, and to help you enjoy yourself along the way! It takes a village to plan a wedding! Come to Century Barn for a unique wedding destination and experience the warmth of our family.
