Australians have long been drawn to Bali for the warm weather, culture and tropical feel and now more than ever, Australians are choosing Bali for their destination wedding.
There are few things more enticing than celebrating the start of your marriage in a location as beautiful as Bali, but the thought of planning a destination wedding in a foreign, non-English speaking country is too daunting for many couples.
We are here to keep your Bali wedding dream alive by introducing Botanica Weddings who can make your Balinese Wedding dreams come true!
Botanica Weddings are behind one of Australia’s most exquisite, multi-award winning Australian destination wedding venues, Villa Botanica in the Whitsundays and they bring their dedication, planning, skills and philosophy of spectacular yet affordable weddings to their venues in Bali.
Today, we take a look at exactly how Botanica Weddings makes beautiful weddings in Bali an easy reality.
A Wedding in Paradise!
Botanica Weddings works with a hand-picked selection of venues located in the popular tourist hubs of Nusa Dua on the coast, Ubud in Bali’s spiritual heart and their soon to be launched new venue, Saratoga, just a short drive from ever popular Seminyak, which give you and your guests a plethora of beautiful accommodation to choose from.
Nusa Dua is the perfect introduction to Bali for anyone on their first visit. After Kuta, this is probably Bali’s most popular tourist area. Here there are lots of water activities like parasailing, jet skiing, banana boats, glass bottom boats, snorkeling trips, mangrove tours, scuba diving, sea walking, fishing, and trips out to the popular and very close island: Nusa Penida.
With all the facilities on offer (day spas your bridal party will never want to leave, incredible aquatic playgrounds for the kids, many very fine local and international eateries and every water sport imaginable), it’s not hard to understand why so many Botanica brides happily extend their wedding day into a wedding week and even their honeymoon!
Plan Your Wedding With Ease
Planning a local wedding is hard enough for many couples, so the thought of planning a wedding abroad will put many people off. Having Botanica Wedding on your planning team will take all the pressure off you.
You have the support of experienced planners in both Australia and Bali who collectively have planned nearly 1000 weddings and give you the peace of mind of knowing you really are in the hands of experts. Importantly, Botanica Weddings have carefully sourced their suppliers and guarantee quality of their work which means you don’t have to lose sleep worrying about things going wrong on the day.
A Worry Free Wedding Day
Your Botanica Weddings Functions Manager and support crew are with you from the moment you arrive to the moment your last guest leaves. They will be at your beck and call to ensure everything flows smoothly and nothing is overlooked. They take care of every detail from welcoming your guests to ensuring every piece of music is ready and cued to the precise second, not to mention the 200 or so other tasks in between.
A Truly Magical Wedding
Botanical Weddings recently launched their exquisite Dream Beach wedding at iconic Ayodya resort. Imagine saying your vows in a century old hand carved teak pavilion perched on the edge of Bali’s most beautiful stretch of white sand beachfront within earshot of the aqua waters of the Indian Ocean gently lapping in the background.
And then have your guests wowed by a surprise performance of Bali’s famous Kecak dance with dancers bearing flaming torches, right in the middle of the beach, only to be further delighted by the magical Coconut Grove where everyone is treated to a truly gourmet 3 course meal under a circus tent of fairy lights and stars.
The Prettiest Photo Opportunities
Ayodya was inspired by the palatial home of legendary lovers King Rama and Queen Shinta from the epic Hindu tale, the Ramayana. Everywhere you look is a stunning vista of exotic ponds, bubbling fountains, soaring architecture and sweeping lawns studded with flowering frangipanis. The resort is unique because of the beautiful photo opportunities it offers, (a criteria of every Botanica venue); so that not only do you and your guests have a breathtaking day, but you end up with an extraordinary wedding album that keeps this once in a lifetime experience alive forevermore.
Peace of Mind With The Professionals
Botanica Weddings’ primary goal is to create the most magical weddings for couples and they know that while it is the less glamorous side, finances play a big part. This is why they quote costs up front with all prices in Australian not US dollars and paid for, in full in Australia. That means no unexpected extra payments, extra taxes, bank transfer charges or worrying about currency exchange rates.
Let The Family Have The Final Word
"We just wanted to thank you and Botanica weddings Bali for the amazing day you provided for our daughter’s wedding. It was truly magical and more than we could have ever imagined. The organisation of the day was perfect from the hair and makeup right through to the final lantern release. The venue was amazing and the set-up of the bridal pavilion and the reception area was impeccable, elegant and stunning. Our friends and family have given us nothing but praise and positive comments about the day and as the best man said ”Sucks to be the next one getting married as how can you top this!” We cannot thank you enough, it was such an amazing, memorable and beautiful day. One we will never forget."
