It’s not hard to see why Howard Vineyard was a standout at the awards this year, as couples across SA gathers online to sing the venue’s praises.

“Having our ceremony and reception at Howard Vineyard was easily the best decision we could have made. Their service is outstanding, and the venue is just so beautiful. If I could give them 1000 out of 100 I would,” said Kayla and Brett, who got married at the venue on 22nd October 2022.

Belinda and Shaun, both of whom got married on 5th November 2022 had only good things to say, sharing that Kelly was ‘absolutely worth her weight in gold’.

“Nothing was too much trouble, she was in constant contact with us, we have two young kids which made it a bit more stressful for us planning a wedding, but Kelly made it so much easier, she even made our 3 year old a babycino at our rehearsal to keep her occupied and my daughter loved it,” said Belinda and Shaun.

Kelly shared that what set Howard Vineyard apart from the crowd was its versatility, with capacity to host both casual garden weddings and formal sit-down occasions. Moreover, being surrounded by picture-perfect vineyards and picturesque views are an obvious bonus.
