All of our guests were so happy with the food and service, the coordinator ensured our room looked amazing, and did lots of little extra things which I found out about later that helped guests feel special and taken care of ~ the entire staff was wonderful and from the start of the ceremony to the end of the reception, everything was smooth and amazing!

Reception was great. We were quite limited to where we could take photos as the wedding directly after ours had exclusive access to the gardens around our ceremony and reception area. It would have been good to have notice of this but otherwise all good.

The function co-ordinators went above and beyond to help us with our wedding. Our flowers arrived but weren't put together and the co-ordinators stayed up after the wedding the night before to set it all up for us, even though it's not usually included. Jenna sewed up the best man's trousers when they split, and Kris drove a couple of our guests home when the personal driver they ordered didn't show up.

The venue at Albert River Wines is truly a piece of art. When your there you feel free and you can let your imagination run wild. My husband and I could not be happier with our choice of venue and we created so many amazing memories there. Another great aspect about this venue is that it provided our guests with entertainment on the bocce lawn whilst we were away having our photos taken.

The coordinators are very professional. They listen and remember everything discussed and never made me feel as though I was asking to many questions. Either Jasmine or Kris would always reply to my emails within 1 day of receiving them. Both ladies are very clear and concise with organising the event which made my life so much easier! One thing that meant a lot to when planning my wedding was that my guests were taken care of, as I have been to many wedding where the guests are forgotten when the bride and groom are having the photos taken. Jasmine and Kris did just that. They made my guests feel very welcome and took great care of my family and friends.

Villa Botanica was absolutely perfect in every way. It was such an intimate, romantic setting which allowed our ceremony to be truly magical. The outlook was exquisite, and the grounds of Villa Botanica made for a truly memorable day for everyone. The staff were exceptional at ensuring our day was perfect and went above and beyond what we could have ever imagined. Every little detail was taken into consideration and executed to the highest degree. Our wedding coordinator (Gemma Garner) did an absolutely outstanding job at not only making our day positively perfect, but at ensuring our wedding planning process was as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. Our experience with Villa Botanica was incredible and perfect. Villa Botanica is without a doubt the most breathtaking wedding venue, with brilliant service to match.

Villa Botanica was fantastic - the venue was outstanding, with beautifully established maintained gardens and hand carved furniture. It had a million dollar view overlooking the Whitsunday Islands. No words I could ever say would do it the justice it deserves. The staff were of the highest standard I have ever seen, they inspired me so much that I now wish to study event management so hopefully one day I may have the opportunity to work in a place like Villa. Nothing was ever too hard for them, they responded to my every request and did all in their power to make our special day everything we could have dreamed of and more. I honestly could not find a single negative thing to say about our experience. Our family and friends commented on how the food was some of the best they had eaten in all their life. Many people who attended told us it's the best wedding they have ever been to and they couldn't believe how great the service was. We thought it was great value for money and the best investment we have ever made. Our wedding was completely exclusive and a dream come true, I would ...

The decor and setting was spectacular and Villa Botanica has every detail covered expertly so that we could relax and enjoy every minute of our reception. The flowers and candles looked beautiful on the tables and were set-up perfectly. The cake (in the stunning cake room!), the gorgeously laid out lolly buffet, aquarium in the bathroom and the floating lantern ceremony in the frog pond garden were all unique and memorable details that we will treasure for years to come.

Venue was perfect with beautiful surroundings, wedding was in the Grotto area and western lawn, jacarandas were in full bloom and butterflies from the gardens accompanied our wedding guests and flying around the wedding party as we made our vows added a surreal wedding moment. All the feedback from our invited guests was so positive, saying that it was one of the most spiritual/ beautiful wedding venues they had ever attended.

Function coordinator went further then an extra mile to make our wedding day perfect. Due to circumstances at the time, with a change of management at Woodlands a few weeks prior to the day, and with taking on a new role at Woodlands, the new and current Function Coordinator actually prevented our entire wedding from turning into a nightmare!, 3 days short of the date, he personally ensured our wedding went ahead after a mismanagement error from previous management. To say the least on that matter but it must be given both respect and credit to him personally!!! His assistance and coordination with all the staff and timing throughout the day was right on que and all arrangements prior during and after the wedding were always a pleasure, always well presented and professional, would totally recommend this management and venue to anyone as a complete package.

There is a wide variety of rooms and room design/ decor to choose from, we chose to be in rooms close to our family members rather then the executive and bridal rooms, however they certainly are befitting the era and the Manor and each has a unique romantic and historical feel about it, recommend anyone planning a wedding to visit this venue, we wanted to make our wedding about family vows and values of bringing deep spiritual understanding to its meaning, something we could never forget and reflect on for our life, the venue provided this with its natural settings and as a mention before, having jacarandas in full bloom with butterflies flying around our heads, courting music through outdoor PA systems and much more made the whole day feel very auspicious, I also learnt of many other types of wedding functions held at Marburg from Midevil styles to traditional, mixed and much more, there certainly is something for everyone.

Kingfisher Bay were beyond fantastic, we booked our wedding with only 3 weeks until our big day due to the cyclone cancelling our initial plans. Nothing was too much trouble, everything was organised quickly and professionally and despite the rushed time frame nothing at all was forgotten. Kingfisher boats stunning venue options including wet weather venues you wouldn't be disappointed using, their packages are reasonable and flexible and the resort itself has stunning ocean views, foliage and flora perfect for picturesque weddings. There is not a single thing we would change about the service we received, we can not thank the coordinators particularly Christa enough.

The staff were the absolute best and would and have recommended to other people, breakfast would have to be the best out of all value for money overall. Barge prices are a little bit high for getting the vehicle across. Could offer a little bit more deco for wedding packages for ceremonies.

We organized our Wedding Day for Australia Day 2015, with a public holiday in mind we had the highest of doubts of being able to organize and pull together the Wedding day of our dreams. Through past experience, organizing events on public holidays is disastrous, everything is harder, and more expensive. Not for KingFisher Bay resort. We had the highest of expectations, with only perfection in our scope. Of course we came across hurdles, with suppliers and their availability, and then prices on services. Nothing was too difficult for Kate, Corey, and the events team. Everything was fixed and sorted quickly. The customer service was exceptional, we were made to feel like Kings and Queens, and after the entire stay, we felt like family. The ceremony location was picturesque, and the poolside reception was stunning, the service on the day was perfect and the entire Wedding provided by KingFisher Bay was completely flawless. Our dream Wedding was made a reality by the entire team at KingFisher Bay Resort. Our guests are still raving about it, saying it was the best wedding they have been to, they all want to return and renew their vows at the resort. Thank You KingFisher Bay, ...
