Westfield Heritage Village is one of the most fascinating wedding destinations in Ontario. Composed of a stunning collection of over 35 historical buildings carefully restored to capture the true charm and spirit of early Canadian culture, the village offers excellent opportunities for unique and rustic outdoor photographs.

Westfield Heritage Village was established by two Brantford, Ontario high schoolteachers in 1961 who purchased land near Rockton, Ontario, using their own money. Their goal was to save heritage buildings that were in danger of being destroyed and also to create a hands-on educational facility to teach pioneer life. The original name of the facility was the Westfield Pioneer Village until 1981 when the name was changed to Westfield Heritage Village as much of the collection was not actually of the pioneer era.

Westfield Heritage Village is actually a part of the Hamilton Conservation Area. At approximately 204 hectares (503 acres) in size, Westfield features natural woodlands, plantation forests, provincially significant wetlands, meadow areas, cultural heritage features from past farming operations, and several well-marked recreational trails easily accessed from the village area.
