The perfect mix of historic charm and rustic elegance, The Tannery offers Kitchener brides and grooms all the modern tech they could wish for.
Situated within Kitchener’s downtown core, The Tannery Event Centre by Bingemans is the perfect mix of historic charm, rustic elegance and modernity. Here is everything you need to know to create your dream wedding at The Tannery…
Since it’s conception in 2010 The Tannery has become one of the region’s premier catering and event centres.
Offering professional catering and venue services for groups of 170 or less, this unique space is a corporate event and wedding venue brought to you by Bingemans. With over 50 years of experience hosting weddings across Southwestern Ontario, the Bingemans team strives to not only build long-lasting relationships with their clients, but to personalize each event to meet specific needs and styles.
The Tannery Event Centre is a unique venue with rich history as part of the Lang’s Tannery, dating back to the 1800’s. It is this unique marriage of history and modern wrap-around digital screens that make this venue a favourite among couples looking to have an experience like no other.
On the big day, you will have a dedicated team including experienced banquet staff and an event supervisor, all of whom are overseen by a banquet and account manager ensuring your event runs smoothly. The Tannery’s competitive room rental fee means couples have the option to emphasize the smaller details which help to create a memorable and personalized wedding.
“We accommodate various weddings from couples looking for a more casual on-site ceremony followed by a cocktail reception to couples who are looking for a four-course plated meal and a fully decorated space with all the best linens! I really do love the diversity I see in clients’ visions, aesthetics and preferences.” – Alexandra Ciaraldi, Account Manager.
The Unique Space
The Tannery Event Centre is comprised of exposed brick walls and 20-foot-tall wood beam ceilings to emulate a rustic atmosphere. Unlike a barn, temperature control is a feature keeping your guests comfortable on those warm summer days and frigid winter nights.
State-of-the-art wrap around digital screens offer a platform to personalize your wedding. Utilize one of the space’s standard images, share a picture of where you said “Yes”, or a video that your best-friend made to honour your relationship – your chosen background will be a special addition to your wedding day!
“The biggest reason for hiring The Tannery was the space itself, the beautiful brick, contemporary and urban style. The large screens helped to create the atmosphere we wanted; they can be personalized or you can choose any of their breathtaking backgrounds. We chose to be married under the twinkling stars. Our favourite memory was that we celebrated our wedding with our friends and family in a beautiful, intimate space.” – Kim & Sylvain, married August 11, 2018.
Special Event Staff
The Tannery’s expert banquet staff will be on-site from start to finish making certain everything unfolds as planned, leaving you to enjoy your celebration with loved ones.
“Alexandra was friendly, likeable, enthusiastic and a delight to work with. She was very well informed about what they offered and was careful to cover every aspect of the rental and set-up. When we asked for special or out of the ordinary things, she took extra care to get the answers and accommodate our requests.” – Kim & Sylvain, married August 11, 2018.
You will have a dedicated event supervisor who will manage staff, ensure everything is set up correctly and oversee meals are served according to dietary needs and desired timeline. Your event supervisor is available to you at any point during your event to answer questions or help in any way.
Your dedicated bartenders are professionally trained and Smart Serve certified to ensure your guests have an enjoyable and safe evening.
Chef & Culinary Team
You will have an on-site chef who guides our culinary team and is dedicated to plating and preparing your meals.
Your experienced banquet managers oversee all operations before and during your event.
Your account manager will be with you from start to finish working with you every step of the way including viewing the space, finalizing booking and planning details right up until your wedding day.
“My passion for events and love of bringing joy to others is my motivation. I enjoy the feeling that I am a part of creating something that will be a lasting memory for my clients.” – Alexandra Ciaraldi, Account Manager.

“The prices for the rental and the food were better than we expected. It was well within our budget and they tailored the food to exactly what we wanted. We had rave reviews about the food!” – Kim & Sylvain, married August 11, 2018.
The beauty of the all-inclusive package is that it takes the guess work out of the planning process which happens to be the source of stress for many couples. With a bulk of the planning laid out, there are still plenty of options within packages for couples to personalize their day to make it a reflection of their unique style.
Tasting your wedding menu is one of the most exciting aspects of wedding planning and helps to make your event come to life. With their years of experience, Bingemans recognized the difficulty of narrowing down your menu without trying all the options first. As such, couples have the opportunity to join Bingemans for one of their tasting events where you’ll have the chance to try their entire menu so you can make your selections with ease!
