So helpful, just perfect!
Myself and Kevin wanted to say thank you for everything on Thursday and everything you have helped with on the lead up to our big day. We had comments about how helpful you were on the day and everything just turned out perfect. Shea and the entire team were also just amazing, we are so grateful for everything.

Worth their weight in gold!
From the very moment we chose to have our wedding in the merchant, all was plain sailing. Nothing was an issue. Lynn, our wedding planner, has been our rock! So professional yet with a sensible approach in guiding us in our journey. Our wedding day was made even more special by having Shea and Erin with us to ensure everything went as planned. Also the belly laughs they provided throughout - worth their weight in gold! Photography: Firefly Weddings

The most unforgettable experience!
I am sure you hear it from every bride but we honestly had the most amazing day - it was a dream from start to finish! I cannot thank you and all of the team at The Merchant enough because you truly made it the most unforgettable experience, not just for myself and Damien, but also for all our guests. You would not believe just how many people have gone out of their way to tell us that it was the best wedding they've ever been to - so thank you!!! Photo: fraserstewartphotography

Fantastic from start to finish
The food was amazing, we have had so many people say it was one of the best meals they have had never mind a wedding meal! Entire staff was fantastic from start to finish- attentive, pleasant, they were brilliant. Thank you for looking after us. Genuinely you made everything we wanted into a reality. Everything seemed so straight forward we kept thinking we were missing something but that was because we literally didn’t need to worry as it was all in hand! Photo: Paul Jarvis
