9 of the most spectacular vineyard wedding venues
The question has been popped (perhaps you took a chance in a leap year and asked them?) and maybe you’ve already said yes to the dress. If that’s in the bag, chances are you’ll soon be wanting to find a venue with Pinterest-worthy backdrops and an enviable Instagram hashtag.
This year, wineries are the hot spot to say “I do!” and we’ve got the scoop on Queensland vineyard wedding venues (for all budgets).
From rustic cellar doors to charming country landscapes, each vineyard has its own unique charm and quirk. Use this go-to list for ‘research’ and by research we mean a few cheeky weekends away before you lock it in!
Cedar Creek Estate, Mount Tamborine
Home to Chambourcin and Verdelho, the wines you toast with won’t be the only decisions you’ll need to make if you kiss your soul mate at Cedar Creek.
Set amongst the beautiful Mount Tamborine, there’s a non-denominational sandstone chapel, garden arbour or garden grounds to explore for your nuptials. And when it’s all signed, sealed and delivered, venture to the glow worm caves for a wedding photo with a difference.
Flame Hill Vineyard, Montville
If having your wedding reception paired with locally grown, small-batch vintages sounds like music to your ears (and your growing home cellar), this Montville wonder might be your ticket to wedding day bliss.
Set 420 metres above sea level, Flame Hill offers happy couples (and their guests) vineyard charm with mountain vistas and ocean views. Consider their signature site – Flame Hill Bluff – for a ceremony with views to Noosa, Buderim and the Coral Sea.
Ocean View Estate Winery & Restaurant, Mount Mee
WiFi to make the vows Facebook official? Yes, siree! But with the rolling-hill view from Ocean View Estates we hope you’ll be making the most of your stunning wedding venue and Etsy-perfect decor rather than scrolling through your hashtag on Instagram.
Just a short 45-minute drive from Brisbane, your guests can take advantage of the onsite vineyard cottages or make their way back to the River City for a CBD staycation.
Sirromet, Mount Cotton
Have the Italian countryside wedding without the price tag or drama of navigating Aunty Jude through international airports with Sirromet’s Tuscan Terrace.
Pledge your love under the canopy of fairy lights in fig trees at one of the three purpose-designed ceremony areas, with the rolling hills and vineyard to complete the scene.
Glengariff Historic Estate, Brisbane
“Dare to be different” is the tagline of this historic 139-hectare estate and from elopements, mid-week “I Dos” or traditional Sunday ceremonies, there’s something for all.
And with the option to get ready in the exclusive hilltop villa you’ll spend your last hours as a singleton taking in the calming surrounds of the Dayboro Valley.
Bunjurgen Estate Vineyard, Scenic Rim
Leave your guests gobsmacked as you arrive in a helicopter before celebrating amongst the vineyards on Bunjurgen Estate.
Pair the sweeping views with their latest vintage and a bespoke menu from local wholefood caterers Poppi’s Pantry for a weekend soiree worthy of a trending hashtag.
Sarabah Estate Vineyard, Lamington National Park
Luxury reigns supreme for couples wishing for their big day to be set amongst the picturesque and private Sarabah Estate Vineyard. With the Lamington National Park as your supporting star, there are ample spots to consider for your ceremony including a luxe chalet.
Nothing is left to chance with a full-service catering team on hand to offer exceptional food, wine and ensure the champagne flows long into the night!
Vintner’s Secret Vineyard, Bundaberg
An intimate rose garden, a viewing deck and orchard garden combine to give North Burnett brides something to write home about.
For weddings with just a few guests right up to a few hundred, Vintner’s offers shade-dappled seating and the chance to walk down the aisle on a working farm! Time it right and you might have a gaggle of goslings join your photos.
Vineyard Cottages, Stanthorpe
Bring the hospitality of Southern Queensland Country to your special day with Vineyard Cottages in Stanthorpe. With a climate perfect for the autumn or winter bride, this country venue offers the chance to get away and to create a celebration to last all weekend (but if a celebration as the vines begin to flower is what your heart desires, you’ll want to book at spring-time date).
After your ceremony in the historic church that dates back to 1906, share in the happy atmosphere with your loved ones over a menu of fresh and local produce.
