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.

As soon as we saw Merridale we knew it would be the perfect location for our wedding. Our subsequent visits and meetings only reinforced this feeling. The Merridale staff were nothing but helpful and made it easy to plan our wedding from Calgary. Everything from the food to the cider to the decor was perfect. Our guests gave great reviews too!

I definitely recommend spending the night in the yurt. It was a relaxing way to end the evening and breakfast the next day was delightful.

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?

We absolutely loved our wedding here, and I can't imagine a more perfect place to wind up at the end of the night after seeing our guests off. The decor is gorgeous and romantic; spend an evening under the stars in a quiet oasis that is the Cidery!

We had our wedding reception at Merridale, and I can honestly say it was the best day of our lives, and I know it won’t have been possible without Merridale’s staff members.

Since the beginning before the actual day, Heather and Jess were always very helpful and patient with all our requests. We were happy at the day of the wedding to have Magaly there, as our family (spanish speaking) came from our home country El Salvador, and all they would speak that day was spanish. When we arrived at the day of the wedding we had some last minute request and Jess with no hesitation took care of it. The food was amazing, our guests couldn’t stop talking about how good it was. Out wedding cake was made there, and it was the most beautiful cake i’ve ever seen. We also stayed at the Yurt for our wedding night and it was perfect, beautifully decorated and very comfortable.

It was a small wedding with only family and close friends, about 40 people total. It was really perfect, all I can remember about that day is happiness all night long.

My husband and I had our wedding day at Merridale in August of 2013. Jess, our wedding organizer, was AMAZING. She answered all of our questions and responded to all of our requests without hesitation. Merridale is a beautiful place to have a wedding or even go for an afternoon cider tasting! The staff were friendly and helpful and we would highly recommend a visit and/or a WEDDING :P
