What Botanic House couples say: 

‘What a great venue for a wedding reception! We had the ceremony in the morning at the Herb Garden (5 mins walk from the Botanic Gardens Restaurant), and then held a lunch reception at the restaurant afterwards. It was a small, cosy and intimate wedding. The service and food were flawless. The venue is bright and open with a nice view of the gardens. They also gave us 1-night accommodation as part of the package at Pier One Sydney Harbour hotel which was fantastic.’ Rina
