Bali is home to some of the world’s most beautiful weddings. That’s a fact. But the only thing more special than this saying “I do” in this stunning locale is celebrating with 100 guests by your side. It’s a destination wedding feat that seems nearly impossible, yet all came to life with Cakes & Champagne on board. The gallery is bursting with Terralogical’s gorgeous captures, and the film by Bali Metro brings it all full circle.
From Cakes and Champagne…Lena and Siang were incredible to work with from the very beginning. They were confident in their decisions and they had the most important thing in mind the whole time, that they were marrying each other. It always felt like no matter what happened, it would be perfect just because of that. Thankfully though, everything went without a hitch including custom building many props such as photobooth walls, silk printed table runners & pillow cases, gilded lights (as seen from a reference image from one of Mindy Weiss’ weddings), coordinating transport for over 100 guests and putting together an amazing team of wedding professionals who shone bright on the day.
From the Bride…We always knew we wanted to have a destination wedding. The idea of getting married away from home seemed so romantic and special to us, and we especially loved the idea of all our friends and family getting away for a few days together to not only celebrate our wedding, but to relax and enjoy themselves. We picked Bali because it’s such a magical island with the most breathtaking scenery you can imagine. On a more practical note too, Bali is only a short flight away from our home city, Perth, so it was also very convenient for most of our guests to travel there.
Picking Bali as our destination was one of the best wedding-related decisions we made. We were apprehensive at first, and for much of the wedding planning process, we were concerned that we had made the wrong decision to have a destination wedding and forcing our guests to travel overseas. I think our families were also apprehensive, though they always supported our decision. At the end though, seeing how relaxed and happy everyone was at our wedding, and how in awe they were of the venue, we knew we made the right decision. Our parents already want us to organise another big celebration in Bali for our anniversary! And we picked the Bulgari Resort because we couldn’t get past the amazing views there. Our ceremony venue was perched on a cliff top, and our aisle was a rose-strewn, clear platform floating over an infinity pool. It was spectacular, to say the least.
