Meet Your Hosts

Urs & Diane

We are Urs and Diane Brunner, and we are so excited to make your special day absolutely perfect.

We have been happily married for a wonderful 27 years (and counting!), and the proud owners of Auld Reekie Lodge for over 18 years.

We used to dairy farm in Tavistock, Ontario. Sold the farm and are now proud owners of Auld Reekie Lodge.

We raised our four children here and are not strangers to hard work.

It has always been a dream of ours to host weddings, and we cannot wait to work with you to create your Dream Wedding Day, and the perfect start to a Long and Happy Marriage!

Of course, we cannot forget to mention our children, Shawna, Stephanie, David and Daniel. As for, if not for them, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Even though they have move on to spread their wings and explore life beyond Auld Reekie Lodge, they are still apart of the lodge and are always coming up to help or to share their input.


  • Shawna is working as an assistant manager at Royal Bank in Kanata and is now married to Zachary (some of you may remember him, he worked here at the lodge)
  • Stephanie has moved to Switzerland and is apprenticing to be an Optician. She has learned the language impressively quick and has met her future husband ( a Swiss guy like her Dad)
  • David is attending his 4th year at University of Ottawa and is taking Chemical Engineering and Computer Technology Programming and is doing extremely well
  • Daniel is in the Toronto area apprenticing through the Steelworkers union for Welding and is doing very well
  • We couldn’t be more proud of them 🙂
