About Us

WE’VE JUST SOLVED YOUR BIGGEST DESTINATION WEDDING HEADACHE We love solving problems for our readers and this one is the mother of all challenges. How to organise a wedding that’s taking place a few thousand kilometres from home without losing your sanity in the process? Well, you can now relax because we’ve just uncovered a bunch of planners who will turn your dream destination wedding into a totally fun andstress-free reality.

Here are the 5 things we love most about Botanica Weddings.

1. BREATHTAKING VENUES   Firstly, they’ve pre-sourced the best venues for you. And when we say best, we mean extraordinary. Locations and places that are gobsmackingly, jaw-droppingly beautiful. Take your pick from the award-winning Villa Botanicain Australia’s Whitsundays, created by Botanica co-founder Ralph Hogan. As well as 3 of the most gorgeous locations in Australia’s number one overseas wedding destination: Bali. If you want a wedding album that looks like a million dollars, you need look no further.   2. WRINKLE-FREE WEDDINGS   Because the Botanicans work with only a handful of venues, they know each one inside out and so they have ironed out all the things that could go wrong. You don’t have to worry about a thing, these guys have everything under control.   3. TWO PLANNERS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE   Each of BOTANICA’S planners goes through exhaustive training. So they have the knowledge to then guide you every step of the way, so you get your own human planner PLUS…your very own Personal Online Planner, which, incidentally, gives you access to all the planning details of your wedding, 24/7.   4. WHAT-YOU-SEE-IS-WHAT-YOU-GET PACKAGES   They pre-quote all the essential services you’re going to need up front. So you are spared the nauseating reality of 100% cost overruns that cause so many couples sleepless nights in the lead-up to their wedding.     5. WOULDN’T YOU RATHER BE A BRIDECHILLA?   Instead of saying: “It’s your day, you can have and do whatever you want, when you want”…and leaving everything up to you, they guide you, step by step. So you still get heaps of choices, but at no point do you get that feeling ofoverwhelm that so many destination brides complain about. In fact one of theirbrides declared, “Everyone expects me to be stressed getting married overseas,but honestly I feel more like a bridechilla than a bridezilla.”     Thanks to the guys at Botanica, gettingmarried away from home has never been so easy.

So if you a thinking destination weddings, do yourself a giant favour and get in touch with the true experts in their field. They’ll answer any questions you have and even take you on a freeonline tour of the ideal destination wedding so you get to try before you buy.
