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.

For in­for­ma­tion, con­tact the venue on 1800 796 990 or 4948 3025.
