Erin & Brad ~ 10th June 2012
“In this era of Photoshop and clever photography I would have thought it impossible that a venue I had only viewed online would not only meet our expectations but entirely exceed them as well, however this is true of Villa Botanica. Our wedding day was such an important day in our lives and to have been fortunate enough to hold it at a venue so remarkable makes Brad and myself feel extremely fortunate.
The creativity of the owners is evidenced by our guests’ comments which included having felt as though they had stepped into a paradise where everywhere you look there is a new garden, stunning view, decorative detail or a surprising fish to admire whilst visiting the loo! Our biggest requirement of the day was that everyone enjoy themselves. I am pleased to confirm they most certainly did! From the first class food and beverage to the surroundings, the fireworks display and the amazing service – everything was absolutely flawless. Dreams come true at Villa Botanica.
In the year prior to the wedding day I had the ultimate secret weapon in planning my wedding, Kate Henley. Kate – I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done during the lead up to our wedding and on the day. Having you guide me through the process gave me complete confidence that everything would run smoothly. Your dedication, motivation and genuine commitment allowed me to feel completely at ease throughout the big day. I was able to enjoy the moment with my family and friends which I think a lot of brides miss out on during the excitement. You are a master at what you do and I will be forever grateful to you.
The dedication of every single staff member is evident from the moment you arrive at the Villa. As Brad said – I only had to think of a scotch and coke and one appeared in front of me. We were certainly treated to a day that our guests and we will always remember.”
