A fantastic venue!
My husband and I LOVED getting married at The Knox. The owner, Michelle, made things so easy and I can honestly say she is one of the nicest people I have ever met. The space is filled with opportunity and is the perfect backdrop for any wedding. Merrickville was a great spot to get married in as it was a fun getaway for our guests as well. I wish we could do it all over again! :)Sent on 11/09/2021

We couldn't be happier that we found The Knox for our wedding! It was the perfect venue - the exterior is stunning and the interior as well, and being a blank canvas you can really do whatever you like with it. Michelle was amazing, and so helpful and made us feel so good and relaxed about our wedding. Also, Merrickville is such a cute little town with great photo spots. 10/10 would recommend to anyone!Sent on 08/09/2021

Absolutely stunning space, we and our guests were blown away by its beauty. Michelle went above and beyond in every regard, organized and on top of everything especially the ever changing restrictions and keeping us informed. She was so easy to work with, personable, friendly and quick to answer any and all questions. We absolutely adored getting married at The Knox and wouldn't have changed a thing. Perfect venue for a perfect day!Sent on 20/09/2021

Amazing venue and amazing owner
My fiancé and I found this venue about 3 weeks before our wedding date (we had to change venues due to pandemic, but wanted to do our best to keep our date) and Michelle was extremely supportive, positive, helpful, and professional. Michelle addressed all of our questions and concerns promptly, while emanating so much positivity that was much needed at that point of our wedding planning. The professionalism and organizational skills that Michelle has, made us feel so calm and well taken care of. She took our very small elopement seriously and gave us the support we needed to make the day happen.Sent on 19/02/2021
Then there's the venue: It is a beautiful old church that has the bones to make any wedding vibe come true. Michelle and her husband did an excellent job making the church a blank canvas that you can use as is, or decorate in the way that you needed for your event. The rentals she offered also saved us a lot of headache trying to find items that we couldn't get with lockdowns and shipping times.
Thank you, Michelle!
