Botanica named best venue
A WHITSUNDAY wedding venue has been named Queenland’s best ceremony location.
Villa Botancia was voted number one at the 16th Queensland Annual Bridal Industry Awards (ABIA).
The ABIA are much sought-after awards for Australian wedding suppliers as they are determined by past brides.
Each year, more than 30,000 brides are registered to vote for their most outstanding wedding suppliers.
Villa Botanica was nominated for an ABIA based on the quality of product, quality of service, value for money and the attitude of the staff who serviced the bride’s needs, before, during and after their wedding day.
Villa Botanica was the winner out of 275 state-wide nominees, and 22 finalists, all rated 95 per cent or more by their clients.
A score of 99.75 per cent gave Villa Botanica the top spot, with locations as diverse as Maleny Manor and Sea World Resort joining them in the highly competitive category.
Daydream Island Resort and Spa was voted finalist in three categories and was rated 95 per cent or over in Best Ceremony Venue, Best Function Co-ordinator and Best Resort Reception Venue.
Owners of Villa Botanica, Janet and Ralph Hogan, praised their staff.
