“Tanya, Thank you so much for all your hard work in the lead up to our big day, you really were fantastic! I would also like to pass on thanks to Breanna and Liam who on the day were absolute champions, running around making sure everything was running like clockwork and that we were happy and well looked after.

From start to finish, the whole experience with Villa Botanica and the whole team there was amazing. They absolutely made our day through simple planning and coordination and totally taking the stress out of the whole the thing. The venue, the staff, the food, the location, the execution...all incredible and can't recommend them enough. We had such an amazing time as did our guests who all absolutely raved about it. Memories that will be cherished forever, thank you Villa Botanica!

The most incredible wedding venue. We couldn't have asked for a better location. Absolutely magical. Our guests loved our venue and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Highly recommend! Villa Botanica offer a unique package that includes stunning wedding venue for ceremony and reception, as well as wedding coordinator who meets with you weekly to arrange all things wedding! I couldn't imagine getting married without the help of a wedding planner.

Absolutely lost for words! We were blown away with the service we received right from the very beginning. The whole process was so easy. They have preferred suppliers local to the Whitsunday region so you feel fear knowing you’re supporting quality local businesses. All your needs are taken care of and the whole process was so simple and stress free. Beautiful location and amazing service to our guests offering vehicles to take them to and from their accommodation to our wedding. We just want to get married again to relive the whole day. It was perfect

How many guests constitutes a small wedding?

We are thinking about 55 :)

Villa Botanica - Whitsundays

Hi there! We normally think of a small wedding as anything between 10 and 30 guests, but 55 is a lovely number - not too many so you can still get to see everyone but not so small you won't be able to invite everyone whois important to you.

If you have any other questions or would like more information please feel free to email rose@botanicaweddings.com. Thanks!
