Egypt room/parlour rental: Ceremony, reception and photos
This package includes the rental of our Egypt Room OR Parlour for a ceremony, plus rental of our Egypt Room for a reception, AND semi-private/private use of the Museum (depending on the season) for a photography session (Photographer not included).
Set in the historic birthplace of the Honourable William Henry Steeves, the Steeves House Museum is a charming Colonial mansion filled with light from massive windows. The original cottage was finished in 1812, and William Henry Steeves was born here in 1814 as the oldest of eleven children. He became a Father of Confederation and, later, Senator Steeves. The larger house was added circa 1840 when the economy of the Village expanded. The house is now comprised of 6000 sq. ft of period rooms and antique furnishings.
The Parlour is an elegant, gorgeously lit, period-furnished room perfect for small, intimate ceremonies.
At 17 x 33 ft., our Egypt Room room rental is perfect for your ceremony and/or reception.
Your Egypt Room rental will include:
set-up of tables and chairs as per your instructions;
brewed tea and coffee with milk and sugar on the side, and the use of our dishes (cups, saucers, plates, cutlery, glasses, serving dishes);
clean-up of dishes, tea, and coffee.
You will be responsible for decorating and taking down decorations - but please use tape for your wall decorations (no thumb tacks or nails). 48-hours will be required for a full refund in the event of cancellation.
Photographs can be taken in any of the mansion’s thirteen rooms, as well as the nearby Saint Mary's Anglican Church, and outside on our spacious lawns under shade trees.
