They were very lovely. We communicated mostly through email and they were so quick to reply to us and were so kind. They were so easy going, and gave us a lot of flexibility with where we could go and for how long.

What a great venue for a wedding reception! We had the ceremony in the morning at the Herb Garden (5 mins walk from the Botanic Gardens Restaurant), and then held a lunch reception at the restaurant afterwards. It was a small wedding (50 people), cozy and intimate. The service and the food was flawless. Jacinta, our event organiser, answered all our enquiries promptly. Everything went perfectly. The venue is bright and open with a nice view of the gardens. They also gave us 1 night accommodation as part of the package at Pier One hotel which was fantastic. It is a bit expensive compared to other venues, but it is all worth it!

Botanic House was such a dream. Chloe, our event coordinator at Botanic House was the best to work with. They checked in with us regularly, met with us and helped us plan much of our reception. It was so great to use the space however we'd like with their furniture and decor. It is such a stunning location and we got to take the most beautiful photos before hand. I highly recommend checking this venue out not just because of its beauty and location but also because of customer service and food/drinks. I also love that we can also go back to visit during the day as it is a cafe when it is not a wedding venue. They also organised all our vendors and their arrive and set up times. Could not recommend them more! We seriously had the best night!

Botanic House exceeded our expectations! The venue itself is breathtaking and stunning. The staff that we had the pleasure to work with, whether it was through emails/phone calls or on the day, were all so helpful, kind and professional. All our guests complimented us on the food/drinks and the amazing atmosphere! Thank you for hosting our special day!
