Barn Weddings in Ontario: Cambium Farms

cambium farms wedding

If your dream is to have a barn wedding, and you are an Ontario bride, you will be instantly smitten with Cambium Farms in Caledon Hills, Ontario.

Cambium Farms has a stunning barn that was built over a century ago. The rustic exposed beams are picture perfect and the gorgeous architecture will wow your guests. The space is perfect for dinner and dancing, and you’ll have more than enough room to get creative with table formations, decor and food stations. For cocktail hour or a smaller space, the Carriage House is another great option and a wonderful way to use both of the locations during the day. If you prefer an outdoor ceremony, why not get married on the picturesque grounds?


No matter where you choose to say your ‘I do’s’, event consultants will help you with all of the planning details to ensure that you get the most out of the venue. And just in case you need one more detail to convince you that this is your dream venue, you’ll be happy to know that only one couple has use of the venue at a time, so you can explore the gorgeous setting and use all of the unique locations on the site. Find more info about Cambium Farms here.

Why did you have an intimate wedding?

We decided to have an intimate wedding because it involved less planning and was less stressful. Both of us wanted to focus on saying our vows to each other without the distractions of a large crowd watching, and an intimate wedding allowed us to enjoy our time without being nervous.

The Graffiti Inspired Wedding: Street Art Chic

A graffiti inspired wedding is ideal for creative couples who are fond of color clashes, typography and street art. Even if graffiti isn’t your thing, there are also some fun touches that will make you decor stand out.

Bring back your high school notebook with a playful cake, decorated with romantic doodles.

The combination of hand-written doodles and the silhouettes work well together to create a cake that has plenty of personality.

Love this Keith Haring inspired cake!

Look beyond the usual venues for a space that you can truly make your own. If you have access to an abandoned church or warehouse you can find some amazing things within them, like this graffiti wall.

Expanding your venue search can turn up some real gems. This historic venue has some edge as the graffiti is so unexpected.

Forget about looking for the prettiest backdrop for your photos and head outside. A wall of street art will create some memorable shots.

Give plain place cards a DIY makeover with the aid of a few bottles of spray paint. You can make them colorful with clashing tones, or add a metallic touch by opting for gold and silver paint.

Who knew that wedding shoes could be a work of art? Find these at Figgie Shoes.

For an alternative guestbook idea, have a graffiti board where your guests can leave their personal messages.

10 Gorgeous Textured Wedding Cakes

When it comes to wedding cakes, there are a multitude of designs to choose from. Textured cakes – with ruffles, lace or pleats are a popular trend to consider. Here are ten textured cakes that we love:

1. Mini Cake 

To add some dimension to a single-layer cake, ruffles will create some extra volume and interest. Edged in gold, the metallic touch proves that small cakes still have enough impact.

2. Flowers and Pearls 

These flowers are the definition of how to incorporate texture into a wedding cake. The pearls work well with the flowers too and really show how a simple white cake can be elevated.

3. Petal Frosting 

Fondant isn’t the only way to go for cake coverings, buttercream looks just as lovely. A pink buttercream with a petal effect goes perfectly with a combination of fresh flowers. If you plan on making the cake yourself, this technique is a good one to learn if you’re not confident in rolling fondant.

4. Intricate Design

For another take on this trend, go for a raised piped design. It gives the look of additional texture without adding too much. This is a great idea for larger cakes as the end result isn’t too overwhelming.

5. Delicate Ruffles

These delicate ruffles are very pretty and give the illusion of a layered or crepe cake. With this detailing, some pink and peach blooms are all that’s needed to complete the look.

6. Blue Lace 

Lengths of blue lace have a vintage feel that looks striking against a traditional white cake. Another option if you wanted to cut costs on your cake, as you can add the lace to a simple design.

7. Elegant Branches 

Woodland weddings filled with nature and leafy elements have so many gorgeous decor options. If you’re looking for a way to incorporate this theme into your cake, then this is such an elegant idea. The piping on the cake replicates the look of branches in a neutral way.

8. All Buttercream 

This buttercream decoration has a rustic effect, perfect for an outdoor wedding when paired with wild berries and fern.

9. Ruffles and Glitter

Ruffles and glitter are surely a match made in heaven. Especially when it comes to cake decorations. Double the texture with alternating tiers that add both dimension and style.

10. Colorful Pleats 

Isn’t this watercolor-inspired pleated cake a show stopper?
