We were blown away - it's just stunning!
We honestly don’t know where to start. The first time we viewed this venue we were blown away, it’s just stunning! We had a long journey getting to our day due to Covid but they were so patient with moving dates with helping to settle nerves and uncertainties. We had multiple conversations with Hattie and Michael the owners and they always tried to help. It was a long and stressful process but they tried to make it as easy as possible and to help us the best they could. 4 dates later we finally got to have our day with the guests we had planned and we couldn’t wait. We did all our decor ourselves and had no one getting married the day before us. Hattie called to inform us about this and it meant we could go and set up everything ourselves the day before which was amazing and got the excitement building again which was truly lovely. The day itself just WOW! We knew they were good but they honestly blew us away! Dianne & Kirsty were incredible! They were there throughout with anything you needed. I was extremely emotional as it only just hit me on the day that it was finally happening after the wait and they were so lovely with me. They helped me getting into my dress, talking through what will happen, just honestly amazing! My husband said the same as they all forgot to put their buttonholes on and they were told to line up and they just blasted out putting them on for them. They helped us with having opportunities of just being alone a couple of times which was the best thing we did as it was such an overwhelming day! They couldn’t have done more! Then Malcolm our toastmaster was just there before you even asked for anything he knew. He was so friendly and again was there for anything you needed it was never a trouble. He helped a lot when it came to photos as he kept talking through with us who we had already had pictures with making sure we got everything we wanted. We honestly could go on and on! The staff were just amazing and the day flowed so smoothly purely due to them. All our guests commented on how stunning the venue was and how brilliant the staff were, they were worth every penny! We had the most amazing and memorable day which we will never forget! We just want to do it all again, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us the most beautiful wedding day ever we are truly grateful. Love Mr & Mrs Twell (and Flash 🐶) x

Absolutely Impeccable!
We had our wedding at this venue yesterday. It was absolutely impeccable! The staff were superb and couldn’t do enough for us, if anyone is looking for a venue for your own wedding day, this place is worth every penny! The staff and owners will make sure you have the day of your lives. 10/10 not a single thing which I can say was a negative about it. Phenomenal place!! Thank you for everything Mr & Mrs Warren

Every single person has been outstanding!
On behalf of me and my husband we just wanted to say thank you to all staff for everything you did on our wedding day 21st June 2021. It was the most magical day and everything we dreamed of, the service from start to finish from every single person has been outstanding! The venue is absolutely stunning and every single one of our guests complimented on the venue and staff to say how amazing you all were. Considering we still have covid looming around our wedding day it felt no different to any other ordinary wedding and that’s down to you all! We will be forever thankful for all you did for us! Many thanks Mr & Mrs McCormick

The whole team and venue was phenomenal!
**Collins Wedding 27/5/2021** This review won't do the team at Merrydale Manor the justice they deserve. We had a covid wedding restricted to 30 and we would do it all again in a heartbeat. the way the whole team and venue conducted our day was phenomenal and we never once felt we were conducting a wedding under restrictions. the venue speaks for itself, we arrived here in 2017 and bought keys to the Manor within 10 mins of entering the grounds! We would like to specially thank Hattie Irlam who was amazing in how she worked with us both in the lead up to the wedding, as you can imagine with the covid uncertainty she certainly put us both at ease with any issues or worries. she was always warm welcoming and at the end of the phone/ email whenever we had a question or worry regarding how the day would go. the same thanks i would like to pass across the Michael Irlam who managed to resolve a 3rd party issue of some sorts to aid us in having the best experience on our big day. The amazing wedding coordinators Kirsty and Di, honestly the day wouldn't have been the same without you both! Kirsty is a seasoned professional and I'm sure she is psychic as she would read an expression on your face from across the room and immediately answer the question you hadn't even asked yet! I called her Boss for the day and followed her lead, as a team they were brilliant and you can feel the love they have for the job they do. They ran the show and we wished they could have stayed the night dancing away and a well deserved drink with us, the gratitude we have for both of them is off the charts! Everything from the venue, the staff at the bar, the morning after allowing us to take it all in whilst organising our flowers to take back as wedding gifts etc was amazing. thank you all so much for making our wedding the best day of our lives! Mr & Mrs Collins (& Keano 🐶)

The team at Merrydale were fantastic from start to finish!
My husband and I had our wedding reception at Merrydale Manor on Friday 6th March 2020, probably one of the last weddings here before lockdown! The team at Merrydale were fantastic from start to finish, and couldn't do enough for us. From the very first time we turned up at Merrydale for out first viewing (over one hour late), Kirsty met us with a smile and showed us around. We knew instantly that this had to be where we got married 🥰 A few weeks later we brought our parents, who also fell in love with the venue as quickly as we did. Our day was flawless, and this is down to Kirsty, who went above and beyond as our wedding coordinator, she is fantastic and we cannot thank her enough! Stefan, The Tall Toastmaster also added to our day, helping things to run smoothly and on time. As Robbie my husband said in his speech, Merrydale, you really did give us the fairytale that we had dreamed of. So many of our guests have contacted me to say what a beautiful wedding venue we had, and what a fantastic day they had there..even going as far as to say that it was the best wedding they have ever attended. So, thank you to Merrydale Manor and all of your staff (special shout-out to Kirsty) for helping to make our wedding day the best day of our lives!
