Florals and bright colours might seem like a no-brainer for a Bali wedding, but these newlyweds had other plans. Opting for slate blue and grey tones combined with lush neutral floral elements, stalks of wheat and lots of greenery, they kept things classic and romantic – with a modern touch. We especially love that seashell-shaped altar, which was used for their reception backdrop as well! Many thanks to Fire, Wood & Earth for these absolutely beautiful photos.
Fi Bi: “My most memorable moment was when I walked down the aisle and did the surprise dance for Reza. I still remember the mixed feelings I had on the day. It was an overwhelming feeling but a day to remember because I was marrying my best friend in front of my closest friends and family.”
Reza: “Mine was definitely the first look, when I turned around and saw Fi for the very first time in her wedding dress. It made me so happy. She looked so stunning and beautiful. I was speechless and almost cried.”
Fi: “As we both work in the creative industry, everyone expected our wedding to be different from others. We would say our wedding theme was classic rustic modern. We knew what we didn’t like but we also didn’t know exactly what we did like, so we created a moodboard to showcase the look we wanted for our big day.
“We chose a colour palette that normally wouldn’t scream spring, summer or colourful for our Bali wedding. We wanted a slate blue-grey feel, and most of our family members wore blue, grey or gold to match the theme. We chose Villa Plenilunio because it is beautiful as it is. Since we are based in Australia, we couldn’t visit the venue beforehand, but the photos were amazing. Reza, who is an interior designer, approved the venue – the interior screamed rustic yet modern. Also, the clifftop view was breathtaking. For our favours, we wanted something useful that our guests could reuse, so we went with customised travel cable organisers.”
Browse as much as you can to find the vibe you like and what you don’t.
Find your dream team! Go to a wedding expo or shortlist your top three wedding vendors for each aspect of your wedding, then go with the vendors that you connect with the most.
Once you have the date set, book your main vendors: wedding coordinator, make-up artist, food, photography and videography. These five are the main priority. If you don’t need a wedding coordinator, you’ll still need someone to be in charge on the day because you won’t have your phone on you at all times.
Make a spreadsheet for your budget and wedding details.
Have fun and enjoy! Make it a fun process for you and your fiancé, as this journey can be stressful.”
