It’s definitely the ideal place to get married, If anybody’s looking for something that is unique and stands out, it’s the place to be. The views are beautiful. The chef actually made us a menu of Somali food, which was really interesting because I didn’t think that anywhere could do it properly. They try, but he hit it to a tee. It was exactly as we wanted.

Thank you so much for making our dreams come true! Literally the night was a dream! All of you are amazing and so detail oriented. The night couldn’t have gone better, I want to do it again and again. The food was amazing, or at least what I got to taste of it. Everything was just spectacular. I’ve only heard good things from our guests about your venue and the food and all the staff. I’ve told everyone I know planning weddings they need to do it with you guys. I can’t thank you enough, you were awesome to work with.

We had an amazing experience working with the Shaw Centre staff! Everything from the email communication to the day of execution were fantastic. We have worked at many venues in Ottawa and the coordinators and staff at the Shaw Centre were incredibly kind, helpful, and attentive.

Shane and I wanted to send a BIG ‘thank you’ to your team for helping us plan and execute our perfect wedding day. We had such an amazing day and couldn’t have done it without you. Your creative ideas, positive attitude, and detail-oriented work ethic are so wonderful. You were an absolute pleasure to work with! The room and view were breathtaking (what a sunset!), the food was delicious, and the service was incredible. I’ve heard nothing but positive feedback from all our guests, saying it was one of the best weddings they’d ever attended. We feel so lucky to have gotten our fairytale wedding.

We loved our experience with the Shaw Centre! Throughout our planning process the team was extremely kind and were always extremely responsive to all of our questions. Alexandra would always make herself available for a quick call to explain anything I had questions about, and considering the complexity of planning a large wedding during a pandemic it was so appreciated. All of our guests were extremely impressed with the food, and so were we! I cannot recommend the Shaw Centre enough, we are so grateful that they helped our wedding vision come to life.
