BLAKE & MEL . MERRIBEE HOUSE WEDDING
Weddings , January 21, 2016
I am so happy to share with you this vibrant and eclectic Merribee House wedding.
Here’s a few word from the Bride and Groom outlining their inspiration for the day. I love the beauty of the country, that it’s so close to the gorgeous beaches and beautiful mountains and is always so lush and green. Blake had never been down the South Coast when we got together so I took him there, early in our relationship for his first trip. We stayed in Berry and he fell in love with the area as well. We’ve now been back numerous times. I remember a friend of mine got married at a little farm near Berry and I wanted to do something similar. As I was looking into options I came across Merribee and instantly wanted to look at it so we made an appointment as soon as we could and drove down. When we got to Merribee it was love at first sight. It was everything we could imagine for our wedding. The gardens were stunning and the fact there were different types of gardens around the grounds, each with their own charm and beauty just won us over straight away. We always knew we wanted an out garden wedding as we didn’t want a traditional sit-down but a cocktail party where the guests could explore the grounds and mingle so Merribee couldn’t have been more perfect. As soon as we got in the car to go home we rang Merribee and told them we wanted it for our wedding weekend. It was the only venue we looked at.
We knew this was the one!
We did everything ourselves from getting and arranging our own flowers, sourcing, coordinating and styling the entire wedding (ceremony and receptions) ourselves, including decorations, furniture, rugs, cushions, candles, vases, confetti, etc. We put together our favours as well, honey jars with little tags. I spent a lot of time on picking things up at markets, Etsy, Ebay and Base Warehouse
