Our winter wedding

We held our winter wedding at Merriscourt, it was absolutely fantastic in every way. There are lots of options to extend your wedding weekend like organising a formal brunch the next day and staying in the fabulous on site accommodation, which we were so so glad we did! No idea that you have for your wedding day seems too much trouble, and the staff worked so hard to make our day perfect and easy! The staff were just outstanding, the food was amazing and overall we would highly recommend. Our guests thought the venue was fabulous and we had so many rave reviews on the food, decor and little touches that Merriscourt helped us sort. It really was the most perfect Cotswolds wedding!

Gorgeous wedding venue with the best team ever

We had an absolutely perfect wedding at Merriscourt, with everything made so easy for us by the incredible team. Nothing was too much trouble and we loved having the venue to ourselves for the whole weekend. It meant we could settle in the day before, set everything up and have a run through of the ceremony which meant that the big day felt so calm and went so smoothly. The whole Merriscourt team were amazing at listening to what we wanted and making it happen - nothing was too much trouble and they brought our vision to life. Special thanks to Eva, Artur and Emily who welcomed us so warmly and made us feel at home so we could have our perfect wedding. We had an April wedding so had planned for all weather eventualities but in the end we had glorious sunshine which meant we could hold our drinks reception outside. Everyone commented on how incredible the food was, it was so delicious and perfectly presented. We would recommend Merriscourt to anyone, we wish we could do it all over again!

The best wedding venue!

Booking Merriscourt for our wedding was the best decision we could have made! Not only is the venue stunning (we fell in love with the stone barn the moment we saw it!), but the whole experience - from our first visit to the big day itself - exceeded all expectations.

The team there are incredible and supported us every step of the way, with excellent communication and advice from the start. We always felt like we were in very safe hands! A special shout out to Eva who did such a fantastic job managing the day itself. She was such a warm and reassuring person to have around and really went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. The service on the day was immaculate and everything ran like clockwork.

The food was incredible! We went for a sharing menu and had a lot of fun choosing what to include (we were even able to include some tailor-made choices). It was the best food I’ve ever had at a wedding and several of our guests have said the same to me. Everyone went home very well fed!

The accommodation was gorgeous and it was so special to be able to stay there the night before with our family and bridal party.

We really did have the perfect day and cannot recommend Merriscourt enough!

Just incredible!!

So amazing - made us feel incredibly supported from start to finish, guiding us through plans and the day itself. The venue is beautiful, and on the day we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The food is beyond what we could have asked for, and everything ran so so smoothly. Thank you so much Eva, Emily and the whole team for making our day exactly what we could have wished for and more!

The most perfect day!

Our wedding at Merriscourt couldn’t have been more perfect. The communication with Emily from the beginning was brilliant and we felt so taken care of through the very overwhelming process. The grounds of Merriscourt are absolutely stunning no matter the season and we were welcome to visit anytime to have a look around during the run up the the big day which made it such a relaxing experience. We booked the cottage accommodation for ourselves and all of our guests which was so perfect, the cottages are stunning and really well taken care of.

On the day, the staff were amazing! The venue was set up exactly how we had asked and the event team were so lovely. Our guests are still talking about how amazing the service was and how attentive the staff were with dietary needs and wants. The food was unreal, we had a beautiful selection of canapés and main/desserts. It was by far the best food we have ever had at a wedding and again, the service was perfect, no one was waiting a long time for their food and it was all delicious.

If you want a perfect wedding day in the countryside of the Cotswolds, you have to book Merriscourt!

Wonderful spring wedding

We held our wedding reception at Merriscourt in the spring and it was wonderful. The venue is beautiful, the staff were all very professional and a number of people commented on how good the food was! It was really handy having accommodation on site, and we also held our rehearsal dinner at Merriscourt the night before the wedding.
