Villa Botanica in best three wedding locations
VILLA Botanica has been a top Queensland wedding destination for years, but now it has been named one of Australia’s top three wedding reception venues in Australia.
The accolade came at the prestigious 2017 ABIA Designer of Dreams Awards held on the Gold Coast on March 28.
Botanica Weddings co-founder Janet Hogan said she could not have been more proud of Villa Botanica’s success.
"We’ve won best in Queensland before but never been placed at the national level and this is testimony to the dedication of the amazing team we have at Villa Botanica," Ms Hogan said.
"And also to the very devoted community of wedding suppliers we are so blessed to have in Airlie Beach: photographers, cake makers, decorators, florists, celebrants, hair and make-up artists, even limo drivers… every single one makes a significant contribution to the overall wedding experience we deliver and I am truly grateful to you all.
"This gave us the opportunity to be part of a glorified group, it’s like a hall of fame award."
Villa Botanica competed with a total of 295 finalists at the gala event, highlighting the exceptional achievement.
The award recognises wedding industry suppliers who demonstrate consistent performance overfour years.
ABIA chairman John O’Meara praised Villa Botanica for the level of professionalism it was renowned for delivering.
Ms Hogan is cleaning up the Villa Botanica venue after Cyclone Debbie.
"It’s been massive, its been a very big clean up and everyone has come on board," she said.
The first post-cyclone wedding is on April 21.
Ms Hogan said she was committed to helping the local wedding industry fire up after the weather challenge.
Villa Botanica is in Airlie Beach on Botanica Drive.
