Weddings at Bank Vault Wedding

Weddings from €3,299

Overview

One King West Hotel & Residence offers guests one of the best, most desired addresses in the city for a wedding. Originally the home of a very prestigious bank, redesigned now as a hotel, One King West will certainly offer you one of the most unique wedding venues in Canada.

The prestigious address of One King West was first home to the original Michie & Co. Grocers & Wine Merchants, established in Toronto in the mid-1800s. In 1879, the much sought-after location changed owners to become home to the head office of The Dominion Bank, a residency that would last an impressive 126 years.  In 1999 the Dominion Bank Building, now deemed a Heritage Building, was carefully redesigned for residential use and by 2006 the transformation was finally complete, resulting in One King West Hotel and Residence. Today, guests of the hotel are treated to the historical splendour of the Dominion Bank Building along with the modern sophistication of luxurious hotel amenities and services.

Located at the bottom of the wide marble staircase leading from the personal Banking Area is the bank's original vault. At the time considered the largest and best equipped bank vault in Canada, the vault is approximately 33 feet square by twenty-five feet high, and is divided into two stories; the upper or Safety Deposit Vault and the lower or Treasury Vaults and this is where you will exchange your vows.

Your Classic Wedding will feature flowers for the bride and groom, professional wedding photography and a tour through Graffiti Alley, the Distillery District and Union Street Station for fantastic photo opportunities.

Wedding Days and Times

Weddings performed Monday - Friday (depending on availability)

Additional Information

Legally you could get married the same day as you arrive, however, we recommend you have a couple of days to get used to any time change and orient yourselves. You can apply for your wedding licence online before arriving into Toronto (cost of the licence is not included and is paid for when collecting your licence in Toronto.  The marriage is valid for 3 months from the date of issue.

  • Minimum stay before wedding: 3 days
  • Minimum age: 21
  • Minimum stay in Canada: 7 nights
  • Weddings take place: Monday – Friday only

DOCUMENTS REQUIRED

  • Valid original 10-year UK passport
  • The original of your birth certificate
  • Marriage licence (applied in Canada) - $125 licence fee required (in cash) when collecting wedding licence in Toronto (approx. £80).

If applicable

  •         If you have been divorced, decree absolute.
  •         If you have been widowed, the original copy of your partner's death certificate.
  •         If you have changed your name, the original copy of the deed poll
  •         If you were adopted, the original copy of your adoption certificate.

If you have been divorced, then the previous marriage dissolvent must be recognised in Ontario. Generally, the Wedding Planner will take the decree absolute across to Canada, swear an affidavit with a lawyer who then sends a copy of the decree with a letter that states in their opinion the divorce is legal and should be recognised. Then, the Ontario department concerned sends back a form stating the divorce is recognised. This can take a while but is generally done within 3 weeks of swearing the affidavit. There is a charge for this from CAD$170).  Please do advise us if you have been previously married.
