Shot of bride and groom

Katie & Richard

We chose Merrydale as our wedding venue, almost 18 months ago. This was the best decision we made, and our wedding was absolutely perfect, thanks to the amazing team.
Back when we first visited, there were only plans of what the completed Merrydale suite would be like, but we knew straight away that we wanted Merrydale to be our wedding venue. Driving through the gates is enough to blow you away, with the gorgeous gardens.
What completely sold the venue to us, was Michael and the rest of the Irlam family. Right from our first visit to Merrydale, the whole family worked so hard to give us the most perfect venue.
We chose to hire the venue for 2 nights, to allow a dinner for close family and friends the night before our wedding. As soon as we arrived we were treated like royalty by Hattie, Michael and the rest of the team. What was evident to see, was how much they wanted our wedding to be perfect, just as much as we did. Nothing was too much of an ask. The fact that Merrydale is run by the Irlam family, really gives a lovely family feel and your wedding is evidently very important to them.
Our day itself was what we can only describe as perfect, it was a dream come true. The ceremony room and Merrydale Suite looked like something out of a bridal magazine, guests are still commenting on how perfect the venue was! The food and drinks provided by Barrett’s was outstanding, and what really stood out was how smoothly everything ran.
Michael and his team were present throughout the whole day and night, to ensure everything was perfect and we didn’t have anything to worry about. We were able to completely enjoy the day, knowing that the whole team had everything under control.
The guests rooms were absolutely beautiful, immaculate and of the highest standard. Again, guests were blown away.
We can’t thank Michael, Hattie and the rest of the team enough, for making our wedding day so special. I couldn’t imagine receiving such personable service and high standards, from any other venue. For any bride and groom who want luxury and a truly perfect wedding, I would highly recommend Merrydale manor! I’m already excited to find another occasion to celebrate at Merrydale!
We cannot thankyou enough.

A review from the mother of the bride Lesley – Michael, Hattie, Hayley and all the team at Merrydale you are the most genuine people who care about your guests immensely.
From collecting some of our wedding guests from The Dog and taking them back after the evening of the wedding to even providing a shirt to one of our guests who had forgotten to pack his!
Nothing was too much trouble and you were on hand constantly checking everything was ok.
Your house is amazing and the venue is stunning.
