Wow! I’m not even quite sure where to start! We chose this for our dream wedding venue just from plans as when we visited for the first time it was a shell. From the first time driving through those gates, seeing the shell but most importantly seeing the development plans we knew this was our wedding venue. I can assure you it does not disappoint. It is truly spectacular and this is all down to Micheal and the Irlam Family.
From the second we arrived on Thursday 16th August, ready for our wedding on Friday the staff could not have done anything more for us to make our stay the best. Waking up there on my wedding morning overlooking the lake with the sun rising was just a dream come true.
The morning began with hair and makeup in what is the perfect beauty room whilst Kirsty ran around behind the scenes setting everything up. I did not have to move a single finger and everything was done even better than I could have done myself. Kirsty is incredible and made our wedding day the most perfect, faultless day. She calmed me down throughout the morning as I had a few emotional
patches, as I could hear her heels coming down the corridor I knew I was okay. Throughout the day Kirsty ran the behind the scenes and just made our dreams come true. Ken our wedding master or ceremony is also faultless! Just the nicest gentleman who again makes you feel calm and ensures you enjoy every minute of the day. He looks after all of the guests, introduces and most importantly looks after the Bride and Groom and to be honest I wouldn’t have chosen two better people than Kirsty and Ken myself. They are selfless and will put themselves out to ensure everything is the dream the bride and groom wanted. Our day was so special and more than we ever dreamed of and the majority of this really is down to the venue and staff- they make everybody feel at home and are super efficient in everything! I realised the tractor was still on the field by the lake on the morning of my wedding however once acknowledged this was moved in seconds. Nothing is ever too much for these guys. We had guests staying at the dog and they were transported to and from the dog by staff to Merrydale- in fact, Steve even did 2 trips on the evening which was just no problem to him at all as all they want to do is please. The number of compliments we had on our venue and everything about the day have been fantastic. In fact overwhelming! Our wedding day was spectacular and memories were made that will live with me forever. Micheal, Suzanne, Hattie, Kirsty, Ken and Steve you made our day the best it possibly could have been and I will be forever grateful of that. Truly Stunning and 100% faultless! Thank you so so much!
