The brides have spoken – and what they’ve said is reason to drink a toast at one local Harcourt winery.
Harcourt Valley Vineyards Winery has taken out a coveted 2021 Brides Choice Award after brides over the past year voted the venue the best wedding winery venue for the Ballarat and Bendigo region.
The national annual Brides Choice Awards are dedicated to rewarding wedding sector businesses that operate in regional areas of Australia.
The brides themselves vote in their top choices across just about every aspect of the wedding industry, from DJs and wedding cakes to hairstylists, photographers and, of course, the all-important venue for The Big Day.
