Bali Wedding

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.

Tirtha Luhur Wedding

Here at SMP, we’re total suckers for a good love story. So when I heard about these two sweeties whose paths fatefully crossed on the isle of Greece 7  YEARS after their first meeting, I nearly went weak at the knees. It’s an amazing tale with an equally amazing celebration, so believe me when I say you can’t miss LightedPixels Photography’s gorgeous gallery + Bali Metro Digiart’s stunning film below!

Beach Resort

From the Bride… The love story of Jay & Amy hark back to 2004 when they met each other at Sentosa beach in Singapore. Warm sunshine, soothing sea breeze and the blue ocean as the backdrop of where their paths crossed. 7 years later, destiny finds its way back to these two lovebirds in the isles of Greece. Their craziness about each other overpowered the air around. 5 months later, Jay followed his heart, flew to Singapore and proposed to Amy. Her answer sealed their way to happiness and happily ever after.

Why the theme “Breeze from the Aegean Sea”…We fell in love on the Greek Islands where everything is blue and white there. So we wanted our wedding to reminisce the place where our love blossomed. An intimate affair filled only with the people we love most in a beautiful setting for the perfect, unrushed reunion, there is surely nothing better than to have it on the cliff-top overlooking the Indian Ocean. And to have all the decoration and details in blue and white.

We prepared the wedding one year in advance together with my wedding planner from Tirtha Bridal. They helped us with conceptualizing major items such as flowers, stage and decorations. And for the small details i wanted to DIY myself so that i can keep these crafts and pass it on to my future children such as: ring pillow, unity candles, bridesmaids’ corsages, floral crowns, invitation cards, thank you cards, escort cards, table menu. It was so much fun doing them!

The wedding day turned out to be exactly how i have imagined it for the past year. It was so romantic, enchanting and fairy-tale like. Although we had many friends and family with us that day, we still felt like we were in a bubble of our own. If I could, I wish to re-live that day once more!

Banyan Tree Ungasan Wedding

Visiting Bali has always been on the tippy top of my bucket list. And this stunner of a wedding? It’s only given me MORE reason to believe making it to there is an absolute must. It’s truly one of the most amazing “I dos” we’ve ever come across (have you seen those views?!) and it has everything to do with the amazing work of Flying BrideErika Gerdemark captured the day behind the lens and Balimetro crafted a film you just mustn’t miss. Catch it all below!


From the Bride… Kevin and I got married in Bali on 28 Juy 2012. The ceremony took place at breathtaking Tirtha Uluwatu Chapel, followed by wonderful reception at JuMaNa, Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts. At the end of the wedding, and even after many months later, our guests would still talk about our wedding, of how meaningful and impressive the wedding was they deemed it to be the best wedding they have ever attended. Soon, through word of mouth many people approached me and asked me to help them with their wedding, And thus, Flying Bride, a wedding concept & design company was born.

THE LOVE STORY: It all started with a ministry to visit a retirement home. We did not know each other at that time, but a common friend that organized the event introduced us. “It was love at first sight”, professed Kevin. The rest, is history.

THE PROPOSAL: Kevin proposed in Singapore, at the roof top of Marina Bay Sands overviewing the magnificent view of the bay and the city. He knelled down on one knee with a diamond on one hand, and asked me to marry him.

THE WEDDING: Every element we used in the wedding was personalized to incorporate our character and taste. There are stories behind the choice of venue, food, etc. to result in a signature wedding that is very much a reflection of us, and our story.

White wedding was the chosen theme. White exudes purity, holiness, and sacredness that brings forth magical feeling to the atmosphere. Rows of white Orchids were tastefully arranged in tall vases by the chapel aisle, which led to the center stage and the main focal point of the decoration. A transparent altar table was beautifully decorated with an array of white Roses and white Orchids, under the umbrella of hanging honeycombs and flying butterfly ornaments.

We wanted to continue with the white wedding theme at the reception however needed a twist to it. Hence, we added cream and champagne color into the palette to bring the guests to experience a more elegant yet warmer ambiance that would reflect the extravagant food and wine, under an intimate wedding experience. A small stage fully decorated with white drapery, hanging crystal and white roses was especially built for the bridal table. Instead of the typical long table, we opted for an interesting arrangement of a sweetheart table.

Traditional tea ceremony is a ritual that is performed to respect parents and other family member. As tea ceremony is rooted from Chinese culture, we wanted red, gold, dark colored wood and some Chinese elements to be the theme of the decoration. Also, instead of the usual indoor tea ceremony, we made use of the gorgeous Indonesian Ocean as their backdrop. The result was breathtaking.
