KINGSLEY Grove Winery has started to diversify its business as a new venue for weddings and functions.

Kingsley Grove was founded in 1998 and has 24 acres of vines and is now a new wedding venue in the South Burnett.

Kingsley Grove's Joanne Berry is the secretary of a newly created not-for profit group, Cherish This Day, established to help couples organise their wedding day in the South Burnett.

The group aims to bring together wedding decorators, dress makers, photographers, cake-makers venues, wineries and suppliers together to make it easier for couples to organise their special day in the South Burnett.

The group hopes to keep weddings in the South Burnett and to make it a destination for country weddings, Mrs Berry said.

The group was started by Karen Bradwell from A Wedding or Event.

At the weekend Kingsley Grove did a mock run for a wedding using local suppliers and photographers and Mrs Berry said the winery had already had an enquiry.

"We've wanted to do them for a while, we just haven't had the means to yet,” she said.

"It's difficult to know where to start.

"We are different to other wineries, they have pubs. We are an option this end of Kingaroy.”

Mrs Berry said the winery could seat 100 people and there was plenty of space to camp out overnight for wedding guests.

"We've also got nicer places for the bride and groom to stay in the area with Mulanah Gardens, Bethany Cottages and Taabinga not too far away,” she said.

"We can have a marquee set up on the grass, we can set up the ceremony in the vineyards.

"A proper country wedding.”

New members are welcome, and can phone Mrs Berry on 0414230128.

The group's Wedding And Formal Week mini-expo will feature more than 20 suppliers at Kingaroy Shoppingworld from April 26-29.
