Love is in the air - and the Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan is ready to celebrate with local couples.

The gardens will host a romantic movie night called Lovers by Lakeside on Valentines Day.

Lovers by Lakeside is a great opportunity to treat the special person in your life to a picnic under the stars set on the botanic garden's lakeside lawn.

The event will be held from 7pm to 10pm.

Rom-com fans will be delighted by this year's movie choice, Pretty Woman.

The movie stars Richard Gere as rich entrepreneur Edward and Julia Roberts as Vivian, a prostitute hired by Edward to attend social events with him.

The unlikely duo soon strikes up a romance, but their love is tested as their different worlds collide.

The iconic film is a fan favourite and even earned Roberts an Oscar nomination. This year also marks the thirtieth anniversary of Pretty Woman.

Attendees are encouraged to bring along camping chairs, bean bags, rugs or anything else they need to get comfy.

Guests can also pre-order a delicious grazing box from Grazing by Kiki, which start at $44 per box, with different dietary options available or bring their own food.

Lovebirds should also bring their own drinks and alcohol to the event.

Lovers by Lakeside will proceed regardless of weather, so please bring rain cover if rain is predicted.

The event will only be cancelled if extreme weather conditions occur.
