About Our Venue
Wedding ceremonies take place in a gorgeous garden quarry overlooking a 30-foot deep granite fishpond. Prepare for the big moment in our bridal suite yurt, and then descend the grassy slope to the ceremony site, surrounded by the seasonal colours of the rock garden. A nearby waterfall lends a tranquil charm as it falls softly to the pond below. We also provide an indoor ceremony option in the winter months. Click here for details.
After the I Do’s, step into the orchard to capture your beautiful wedding photos. Meanwhile, your guests enjoy a cocktail hour with drinks and canapes by the pond. There’s no need for family or friends to venture off the property or do any driving to another location, because your reception space is just up the hill in the farmhouse.
The farmhouse offers a feeling of country elegance perfect for couples looking for a unique setting. Central to the estate at Merridale, the farmhouse is a charming, barn-like structure constructed with local timber to give guests a warm, welcoming experience for dinner and dancing. End the evening with a stay in our luxurious yurt while your guests retire to one of the many local B&Bs, hotels, and other charming accommodations the Cowichan Valley has to offer. We are happy to connect you with local transportation companies to arrange shuttle services.
Let us take care of the details, leaving you to enjoy friends and family—the way it should be! Our wedding team has created a decoration package that fits naturally within the setting of our apple orchard, and can be tailored to incorporate your personal touch. It is elegant but full of country character and captures the essence of why you chose Merridale for your special day.
