Villa 2021 Testimonials

Would have to say when we walked through the doors into the reception area. All eyes were on us and with all the beautiful candles lit it felt like I was in a fairy tale ๐Ÿฅฐ. It was WAY more than what I had expected. My dreams couldn't even compare to how amazing our day was.Even when it starts to rain your wedding coordinator still has everything under control. They know the place so well so trust them.

โ€” Hollie & Jacob 22/05/21

The stress of planning a wedding from interstate was kept to an absolute minimum. Any questions we had were answered promptly. We didn't have to worry about everything turning up or set up or pack down. Any questions or fears we had were addressed promptly. I can't recommend Villa enough.

โ€” Erin & Michael 07/05/21

This is definitely a hard question to answer because each space at Villa is special in its own way. The Bridal Suite was to die for! The Seadeck with the fairy lights and all of our table decor was absolutely magical! And looking out at the ocean from the black rocks while getting our photos was truly breath-takingโ€ฆ

โ€” Rebecca & Joe 29/05/21

The best advice we received was to carve out some time in the day for just the two of you and to find moments throughout the day just to pause and soak in the details of the day. I will never forget stopping just to smell my bouquet before heading down the aisle.

โ€” Courtney & William 15/05/21

Yes, words cannot quite express how amazing the service was. We started our experience with the lovely Breanna, her patience through my mini meltdowns when I had to change the date twice over and when she had to pass on covid restrictions was so amazing. Then to finalising our wedding planning we were looked after by Linda. Linda knew the importance of โ€œgetting the beach shotโ€ and went above and beyond to get me down to the beach by sunset. I must say the picture was incredible! Not to mention the great DJ, the food has been raved about by our guests and dรฉcor was stunning. If it wasnโ€™t for her helping me through my nerves and anxiousness leading up to walking down the aisle, I donโ€™t know what I would have done. She did not leave my side when I needed support and I was so lucky to have her- she is a brilliant wedding planner and a truly special person. As this was the third date rescheduled because of covid, this day meant the absolute world to us. To plan a wedding for three years and look forward to your big day so much only to keep having to change the date was the hardest. To be honest, I didnโ€™t believe it would actually go ahead until I was standing there at the venue in my wedding dress! So, I will treasure our wedding day and hold on to the memory of just how perfect it was forever. The wonderful staff and scenery of Villa Botanica made my Fairy Tale wedding dream come true.

โ€” Kymberley & Michael 28/05/21

Every single guest, no matter their age, had an amazing time and are still raving about it to this day. Couldn't fault the venue or anyone that works there. Thank you so much for giving us the most amazing wedding experience. Everyone probably always thinks their wedding is the best but I don't think much can top a Villa Botanica wedding!

โ€” Nicole & Jake 14/05/21

The Villa, the gardens, the sea deck, the picnic area, the ceremony spot. Really itโ€™s so hard to pick one favourite spot. Relax, Villa Botanica have you covered! It was truly an unforgettable experience for us and our guests. Memories to last a life time. I only wish we could relive it again. Weโ€™ll definitely be back to Airlie Beach and maybe even renew our vows in the future at VB. Thank you.

โ€” Lisa & Luke 16/04/21

Running a business ourselves, we knew our time would be limited to plan the wedding of our dreams, so we sought a venue that could offer a full service. Villa Botanica not only met this requirement, they exceeded all our expectations. Through a COVID postponement in 2020 and COVID lockdowns on the weekend of our wedding in 2021, Villa Botanica were flexible and supportive in amending guest lists, coordinating travel arrangements and liaising with our various vendors to ensure our wedding was executed to perfection.The venue was beautiful as we knew it would be, but what set the day apart was the organisation. Every detail is scheduled with precision, communicated clearly and therefore makes for a very relaxed happy day for the married couple and their guests.100% it is the most luxurious, beautiful tropical wedding venue! The food and cocktails were delicious, and staying at the bridal villa with breakfast the following morning was divine. Nothing, professional in every way!Our wedding was everything we wished for. The venue is spectacular, the event planning is meticulous and made simple for the bride and groom and the catering was divine!

โ€” Matilda & Zane 04/07/21

Absolutely. The lead up was as stress free as I imagine it could be, the day went unbelievably smoothly and the venue was stunning. We had a brilliant time!The planning and reminders for getting things done were an absolute godsend for me. With a 2 and 4 year old โ€“ life is pretty hectic and planning the finer details was never going to be my strong point! Venue was absolutely perfect โ€“ zero issues.

โ€” Sam & Josh 03/09/21

Being able to change the organisation of the day to let us have a helicopter ride to Whitehaven Beach was amazing and something weโ€™ll never forget.The service from Villa was magnificent. Linda was the most wonderful human who went above and beyond every step of the way!

โ€” Rachel & James 30/10/21
