Bohemian vibes, a relaxed atmosphere and a festival feel describe the wedding of Melbi and Andrew. Held in a historic 1850s house in the lush hinterland of Nowra, with six acres of ornate gardens and a rustic barn, the event was conceived as a free-spirited extravaganza. “Working and living in Sydney, I did not want to have a wedding in a Sydney venue as it would remind me of work,” says Melbi, who, as an events manager, had the expert knowledge to bring the celebration to life. “Merribee was recommended by a friend. We loved it and booked it immediately. It...
