Discover Our Space
What sets us apart from other venue sites is our diversity with regard to our offering: for the past decade alone we’ve catered for weddings from various cultures, tailoring and preparing the venue to suit and respect the traditions of all religious and cultural backgrounds.
With our picturesque venue, ballroom and dancefloor, an event at Merrimu is one that will be remembered forever. What’s more, it’s a photographer’s dream-environment, which means that your wedding images will be as unique and special as your special day – or night.
The original homestead was converted to a reception venue in 1955, now known as the Merrimu Room. Following a successful 12 years of trading, what is now known as the Grand Ballroom was constructed onto what was the sprawling grounds and circular driveway of the original home.
The Merrimu Room, still complete with many of the original Victorian-era features, seats up to 140 guests, while the Grand Ballroom can seat up to 400 guests.
