About Us

Jeff and Sandy Vachon are the owner, operators of The Clearing, an outdoor wedding venue nestled within a thirty acre woodlot on the Vachon's farm. It is conveniently located just south of the 401, on the southwest outskirts of London, Ontario. Jeff, a retired plant manager for a local commercial printing company, and his wife Sandy, a self employed Interior Decorator, have two sons, Kyle and Mitchell. All four family members, as well as close family and friends, were instrumental in the brainstorming and back breaking job of turning a wet, unproductive piece of land, into a unique, private and picturesque setting, ideal for any outdoor function, and unprecedented as an outdoor wedding venue!

Kyle, co-owner of Second Nature Land Design, a local Landscape company, and Mitch, owner of Mitchell by Design, a custom furniture and cabinetry company, with a back ground in the music production business, have been a great, and much appreciated, hands-on, asset through-out their parents' venture. A solid work ethic, and innovative mindset is the foundation setting the stage for what would ultimately become The Clearing!" We, very readily, became aware of a vast desire for a natural, simple and private setting by many brides and grooms to be. The Clearing fills a void in the wedding venue business that only a rustic, country property can provide." The Wedding Ring has described The Clearing as " A fairytale come to life! Magical, private, personal, picturesque, simple perfection nature’s way!" The Vachon's call it Home! And do everything they can to make you feel that way as well. If only for a day!
