When it came time to pick a wedding venue Georgie and Tim wanted something special. A place not only beautiful - trust me, the Amanusa Resort fits that bill – but also somewhere layered with meaning. In a nod to the Bride’s Indonesian roots and desire for a garden party vibe, they settled on a Bali-set wedding designed by Asmara Weddings and captured by Thomas Stewart. See the whole day here.
From The Bride…Georgie and Tim met at work, in an advertising agency in Sydney. As Tim was leaving the company he decided it was about time he asked Georgie out. She said yes and a year later they went traveling through Europe and South America for six months and moved to New York, where they got engaged. Georgie always wanted to go on safari for her honeymoon so Tim filled their apartment with inflatable zoo animals and asked her to go to Africa with him.
We wanted to get married in a place that would not just mean something to us on the day but in the future as well. Georgie’s mum is not only Indonesian, but her mum and dad have just moved to Bali. We wanted a garden party style venue and when we saw Amanusa, it was easy decision. Plus, it’s Bali.
Planning the wedding was interesting to say the least! We planned the whole thing from the States, with the exception of a 4 day trip to Bali. During this time, we also changed jobs and moved to the other side of the States 6 months before the wedding. When you are doing so much via email and Internet searches you really have to trust the people you are working with.
When they tell you the day goes fast, they are not lying. I think we were both quite taken aback on the day. To have so many loved ones there for you and to see this event you have been planning everyday, actually happening, even better than you imagined, it was almost too much. Someone described a wedding day to us as being like a soldier returning home from war. You can do no wrong. It’s your day to be a hero, so stop for a moment and take the whole thing in.
From Thomas Stewart…Georgie and Tim’s wedding was just epic. I’ve never seen a venue as incredible as Amanusa; at night, the reception looked like a scene straight out of a fairy tale. Despite the heat and crazy humidity, and even despite some random lighting problems during speeches, the day was a huge success. I loved Georgie’s incredible Jenny Packham gown which was super elegant; I also loved the venue styling. The Balinese love their styling!
