“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. It is certainly a day I will never forget. I only wish I could do it all again. Thank you!!!!!” Rebekah

As soon as I found Villa Botanica I knew it was where I wanted to get married and was well worth waiting over 2 years for our big day! The venue is second to none and is absolutely stunning with a private beach, manicured gardens and a rainforest. The wedding planners Bre and Tania are fabulous and always made sure everyone was comfortable and having a great time. From start to finish the day was flawless and I hope I will be invited to a wedding at Villa in the future so I come back again! Thank you Villa Botanica for making our Wedding Day the best day of our lives.
