An outdoor wooded venue located in the Niagara Region, Ontario Canada

Forest wedding venue


Woodland Weddings is situated on a three acre woodlot that is part of a farm owned by Vic and Miriam Ratzlaff. A meandering path leads through the wooded area ending in a natural clearing from which the farm fields can be glimpsed through the trees. Nature's own outdoor cathedral becomes the perfect place for celebrating an outdoor ceremony.

The thirteen acre property also sustains a vibrant CSA farm program. Fresh produce and vegetables are grown in a pesticide free environment and members pick up their bushel of just-picked goodness weekly throughout the spring, summer and fall.

Vic and Miriam are passionate about experiencing and sharing with others the joys of rich soil and unspoiled land. Welcome to the farm!
