Weddings at Merridale

Close your eyes and imagine an orchard filled with blooming apple trees, songbirds chirping in the sweet-smelling air and a ceremony site overlooking a waterfall flowing into a pristine fishpond below. These are just some of the reasons why Merridale has become a sought after place to say “I do”. Located right on our property are two “bridal suite yurts”. These beautifully appointed suites each sleep two and are the perfect place to retire after a catered reception in our Farmhouse. All of our décor complements our rustic setting and can be tailored to incorporate your personal touch. Accommodation for your guests is nearby, plus there are many ways of getting to and from the orchard. We also provide an indoor ceremony option in the winter months. Click here for details.

Located up island from Victoria, this gorgeous space has beautiful orchards and an elegant, rustic feel. Why not treat guests to a cider tasting tour while you’re there?

My wife and I have been to merridale a few times before and love the atmosphere and cider. We decided to have our wedding reception there and it was wonderful. The staff was a blast and extremely helpful the night of the event. The restaurant and grounds are just so beautiful. Janet and Jess were great and made sure everything went smooth. All of our guests had a wonderful time and loved the venue and staff. Highly recommend merridale for not only weddings but just a great time out, whether its for a dinner or just to stop by and taste some ciders and fresh pastries. Beautiful place!

We got married at Merridale Cidery in July 2016 and it was the perfect day! Leading up to the wedding Brittany and the Merridale team were so accommodating; they helped us with every aspect of the planning. They are thorough and didn’t miss a detail. They are also open to new ideas (such as providing a picnic basket for the bridal party to take when they go for photos). The ceremony site was a dream, and the Merridale Decorator package was awesome. We had so many comments from guests about how beautiful the place looked. The food was PHENOMENAL. My only negative feeling about the wedding is that I didn’t eat enough!! We stayed in the yurt for our wedding night and it was magic. What a great way to spend your first night as a married couple! Then to have our own private breakfast in the restaurant the next morning – fantastic! Thank you to everyone at Merridale for helping to ensure that our wedding went on without a hitch. The staff was so friendly and welcoming, we couldn’t have asked for a better venue.

Our wedding was amazing! We have received so many compliments from our family and friends. Some guests said it was the nicest wedding they have ever been to. We ended up with beautiful weather, impeccable service, and amazing food. We spent the night in the yurt and had a wonderful fresh breakfast served in the morning. We are both looking forward to our next visit down there!

Our wedding at Merridale was absolutely wonderful and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful setting! We loved the natural environment of the apple orchard, a perfect majestic backdrop for beautiful pictures. The staff were professional, organized, personable, creative and very experienced. Everything from the beautiful yurt, the gorgeous ceremony setting, and then being able to cap it off with a delicious harvest table spread. It was everything we were hoping for and more. Thank you so much to all the Merridale staff that made this the best day ever! And that's not even mentioning the cider!!
