Top Wedding Tips

Find out whether your venue has backup plans on the day. You can't always rely on the weather! And if you don't get the weather you wanted, don't let it spoil your day!

Make sure you book your registrar on the same day as your venue. Check with your registrar first whether they have the time slot you need first!

Ask who runs your wedding on the day? Do you get a wedding coordinator who looks after you before and the run-up to the big day - it's important that you have a rapport with them!

A huge huge thank you to all the team at Merrydale for making our wedding day truly perfect. We chose Merrydale not only for it being a beautiful venue but also for the team being so professional and welcoming. We knew that no matter what happened on the day the team would deal with it and having that confidence was a big reason for choosing Merrydale. Plus obviously the venue and food being amazing was a big plus too! All of the team were brilliant, on and before the day, but a special thank you has to go for Hattie for being so helpful and answering my many questions and Kirstie for managing the day so well. Thank you everyone so much xxx

We want to echo all the previous excellent reviews. Merrydale is truly the venue of dreams. Thank you to Micheal who initially showed us round prior to the venue opening. The minute we drove down the drive and saw the stunning landscapes we knew it was a truly special venue. We got married back exactly 2 months ago in April and it truly was magical from start to finish. We were lucky enough to spend the evening before at Merrydale. We had a lovely meal at the dog - all transport was provided and the lovely Margaret brought us to and from the venue. It allowed us all to relax and not worry about driving. Steve was also very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. Waking up in the beautiful bridal suite on the morning made the morning feel so relaxing. The make up room was a great facility and it was lovely for the bridal party to get their hair and make up done there. Margaret and the team were there in the morning to look after us again being so attentive to our every need. A huge thank you to Hattie & Kirsty for making the day feel super organised and for answering all our queries leading up to our special day. A special mention to Ken our Toast Master, he tended to our every need and made us smile all day. He truly made our day. Our guests complimented how amazing the service was, how beautiful the venue was and how professional the staff were. The food was truly gorgeous - from the canapés to our wedding breakfast. A big thank you to Barrett’s and their staff - no glass was left empty! Attention to detail was second to none. We would fully recommend Merrydale for a stunning wedding venue from start to finish. Eileen & Matt - Mr & Mrs Leather x
