Do yourself a big favor today, and set aside some time to watch this film from Denee Motion Boutique Wedding Cinema. Trust me. Because not only is this video a beautiful look into this absolutely amazing wedding, but it’s also like a virtual vacation to Bali. And how can you go wrong with that? It’s five minutes well spent, and it all starts when you push play.
From The Bride…Toby and I met at work and as soon as we figured out that we had so much in common, we started dating. We bought a house over a year ago in Los Angeles and then Toby proposed on my 33rd birthday, november 2nd, 2012. We chose to get married in Bali because it was a childhood dream of mine, my mom being from Indonesia, I have come to bali several times and always knew it would be the place where i would start a beautiful marriage. Since Toby was from UK, this seemed reasonable as his family and friends would have had to fly out no matter where we chose. In 2012 we attended Sean and Simone Hancock’s wedding in France (vimeo.com/44029426), and that is where we had the pleasure of meeting Deneemotion. We fell in love with the video they produced and asked them to be a big part of our wedding. They have captured the most beautiful day in Toby and my life and we can now relive the magical day.

The more I plan my own wedding, the more a destination fete sounds like pure bliss. In all honestly, one destination I’d never considered was Indonesia, maybe because it’s quite a trek for this New England gal. But after seeing this colorful island wedding from 39 East and The Wedding Stylist? I’m convinced that packing up and heading half way around the world, is sooo worth it. See the whole thing right here!
From The Wedding Stylist… Vanessa and James held their wedding at Nikoi Island, Indonesia for an intimate 40 guests. They wanted something fun, relaxing and by the seaside. As they were based in London, this doubled up as a mini vacation for their family and friends.
The wedding ceremony was held in the late afternoon and the area was decorated with colorful ribbons, paper lanterns and garlands. The theme was whimsical and the guests had mini rattan fans, handmade flags embossed with fun quips and bags of airplane-shaped confetti which were cut out from old maps to represent their destination wedding.
After the ceremony, guests were ushered to the pool side which overlooked the sea (amazing view!) where they enjoyed a variety of drinks including 2 signature drinks, Groom’s choice and Bride’s choice. Escorts cards were placed inside small bottles to make it look like a message in the bottle and each table had a specific seashell picture as its “table number”.
The reception was decorated with lanterns hanging from the ceiling, ribbons were used as runners and the flowers were bright, happy colors to bring out the whimsical feel. This wedding was not only colorful but very vibrant and fun! Place cards were inserted into wine corks and a green orchid was placed beside it. Kilner jars were also used at the reception to hold the table center pieces as part of the deco and also as a play on the groom’s last name.
After dinner, the couple did their first dance by the beach and straight after, a showcase of fireworks poured into the sky to start the after party!

If there is one thing I’ve learned while working at SMP, it’s that crazy gorgeous weddings happen in Bali. I’m talking weddings held on breathtaking cliff sides with brides and grooms who really, really know how to throw a party. And this beautiful day captured by Sherise Fleming? All of the above with an extra side of pretty. See it all in the full gallery.
From Sherise Fleming Photographer… Anna and Aaron’s wedding in Bali was truly something special. By having a destination wedding they were able to celebrate and holiday with their friends and family while enjoying all that Bali had to offer. They described their wedding theme as Modern Vintage with some Balinese aspects.
The couple were married at the Royal Pita Maha, a one of a kind resort located in the spiritually charged village of Ubud, Bali. Guests were treated to amazing views, fantastic weather and great company. The location was chosen after Anna and Aaron had visited Bali during their engagement period. With the help of their very kind tour guide Mully they searched for something different and beautiful, a place where they could have a holiday with their nearest and dearest and even return to in the future.
Anna and Aaron saw each other before the ceremony so once they were wed they could immediately celebrate with their guests. The groom first saw his bride at the bottom of the resort by the Ayung River. We had decided on this location the day before, as it was truly a wonderful spot that was not only beautiful but intimate and private. The Royal Pita Maha had provide us with some amazing locations for photos. The resort is surrounded by cliffs creating a hidden oasis that boasts beautiful water features, well landscaped gardens and amazing villas.
Their Ceremony took place in a glass chapel that was positioned on the cliff side of the resort. This ensured that all guests had a view of not only the gorgeous couple but the rainforest valley that surrounded them. A cocktail hour followed with signature cocktails and acoustic music played by Anna’s sister and cousin.
Traditional Balinese dancers accompanied by a Balinese band started what would be a very special and unique reception. The couple put on a glorious banquet accompanied by wine from around the world (thanks to their close friend that works in the industry). The night ended as it should with everyone on the dance floor.
