Your Love Story

After arranging a lunch date with Amy, I surprised her by having her picked up outside of her office by a limousine. Inside was champagne, chocolates, roses and a poem explaining she had the afternoon off and to just enjoy the ride. The limousine drove her to an airport where a helicopter was waiting to fly her along the coast and up the Swan River before landing in front of Crown, where I was waiting on the terrace of a suite facing the helipad. A vintage open top limousine then drove her to the hotel entrance where the driver gave her another envelope with the room key. Amy opened the door to the suite to find a trail of rose petals leading her outside onto the terrace where I was waiting with a bottle of Dom Perignon. As we sat sipping a glass of champagne, a plane flew along the river in front of us towing a banner with the words I LOVE YOU AMY! WILL YOU MARRY ME? and I got down on one knee and asked if she would spend the rest of her life with me.


Destination Weddings

We have family in Townsville and were looking for a wedding venue on the Queensland coast. When we came across Villa Botanica online, we fell in love with it and knew it was the perfect venue for us. Choose an amazing venue and a location with a range of accommodation options to suit your guests and their budgets. Also consider the size of the location – Airlie Beach was small enough for our guests to be able to get around on foot, making it easy for everyone to socialise outside of the wedding day


Wedding Day Vision

Our Wedding theme was elegant, sophisticated and timeless. Our style is generally quite classic and timeless, and we wanted our wedding to be the same and to reflect who we are rather than the latest trend.


Sit Down or Cocktail

24, sit down


Honeymoon Heaven

We spent a week in Airlie Beach celebrating our nuptials with our guests, then flew to Paris and spent 6 weeks honeymooning in Europe (France, Italy, Greece and Croatia). Our European honeymoon destinations have been on our list for some time and Amy has family in Croatia that we spent time with.
