Winter wedding ceremonies take place on our back deck with the natural beauty of our garden quarry, apple trees and nearby pasture land. In case of a chilly day, large overhead heaters surround the seated areas to ensure warmth and blankets are provided for those that might have a slight chill. Small white twinkling lights hang from the rafters to give a warm glow and set the stage for an enchanting, romantic winter's evening.
The area offers numerous sites for wedding pictures with family and friends. While you are busy capturing those memorable moments, our staff cater to food and beverage desires for your guests. No need for family or friends to venture off the property or do any driving to another location.
For your reception, the Ciderhouse offers rustic elegance at its best and is perfect those looking for a unique setting. Central to the estate at merridale, it is a magnificent structure constructed with local timber giving its guests a warm welcoming. Inside, it features a cathedral ceiling, and a barn-like wooden floor for socializing or dancing. Full length windows allow guests a panoramic view of the apple orchard while a grand fieldstone fireplace separates the dance floor and the bar offering a reception lounge area to mingle. Here, guests may have a space away from the dance floor to enjoy our signature cocktails or finger food.
Our red seal chefs take great pride and care in the food and drink that are central to your celebration. Our focus is on local quality food, presented with a merridale twist. You will find that most of the menu options have been picked from our own garden, made in-house, or sourced from local farms. Our menu and presentation style is befitting of our ciderhouse and apple farm location too.
