The heritage wedding venue of choice since 1955
Looking for a unique boutique venue to host your wedding? Why not opt for one immersed in history and tradition that’s been operating since 1955? Merrimu has been the heritage wedding venue of choice for Melbourne brides and grooms for over six decades and counting, and you could soon be one of them.
Based on an original colonial homestead, our building has been fully restored so you can look forward to a venue that offers plenty of character and ornate period features without compromising on modern facilities and comforts.
Couples marrying at Merrimu can choose between two separate function rooms – each with its own dedicated entrance, welcoming foyer for pre-reception drinks, as well as bar and bathroom facilities. Each function room has a spacious separate bridal room with an adjacent en suite and powder room facility, so the bride to be and her wedding party can prepare for the ceremony in comfort and privacy. Each function room also has its own private courtyard garden, which provides a gathering area for your guests to mingle, as well as a picturesque backdrop for photography.
The smaller Merrimu Room can comfortably cater for up to 120 seated guests for a seated wedding or 250 for a standing cocktail reception. The larger, open plan Grand Ballroom features a dedicated bridal table, dance floor and grand staircase in the adjacent welcoming foyer. It can accommodate up to 350 seated guests (with the dance floor) or up to 400 guests without.
When you marry at Merrimu, you will enjoy extended food, beverage and hospitality packages for your convenience so that you can relax and truly enjoy your special day, knowing that major parts of your wedding and reception are being taken care of onsite and in-house. The management and staff at Merrimu will make sure that your special day is handled with personal care and dedication to detail.
Both our rooms are available for tours seven days a week, subject to prior appointment.

We look forward to hearing from you so we can start planning your special day.
