    A Modern Blue-Grey Cliffside Wedding in Bali

    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.

    A Happy and Simple Life in Bali

    Sometimes all it takes for even the most simplistic bridal portraits to shine with life is a willingness to have a good time. “Mundane” locations such as the Denpasar Fruit Market, Seseh Paddy Field and Black Sand Beach become remarkable – if the couple and their photographer allow. Thank you for these superb shots, Terralogical! The concept was to capture Alicia and Ryan being their normal selves and enjoying their time in Bali, including at the rice paddies and Black Sand Beach. She also wanted to be photographed at the market, hence the fun shots with the fruit sellers. Many were excited and eager to participate in the couple’s shoot,…

    Sunset and Mirrors at Nyanyi Beach Bali

    You can tell from the couple’s body language that they had an absolutely amazing time shooting these bridal portraits. They are real and passionate, and we know that they – and their guests – will be looking through this album over and over again in the years to come. Thank you for these awesome shots, Fire, Wood & Earth! Choosing to take their portraits at the famous black sand Nyanyi Beach was an easy choice, as they both enjoy the ocean immensely. It reminds them of God’s faithfulness, they say. They opted for a casual look in soft neutrals, their photographer did well to get those mirrors for the shoot.…

    An All-White Dreamy Cliff-Top Garden Wedding at Khayangan Estate, Uluwatu

    The dreamiest of all dreamy weddings, this all-white classic is a jaw-dropper indeed, with its textures and interesting touches taking the cake. From the bride’s dress and the décor to the elements of blush pink and grey at the reception, it was all too beautiful for words. Swaths of tulle and an abundance of white flowers and stalks of wheat surrounded the newlyweds and their bridal party for the exchange of vows, which they did against a backdrop of crashing waves and serene cliffs. We’re so in love with this wedding – many thanks to Iluminen for this dazzling set of photos!

    A Dreamy and Rustic Outdoor Wedding at Mandapa, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Bali

    Most brides would fret about rain on their (outdoor) wedding day, but this bride simply embraced it all! Keeping things clean and minimalist, the bridal couple used tons of dried flowers, which complemented all the other traditional décor elements, including those from their Javanese heritage. What a classic and romantic wedding! We also loved how the bride snuck in a message on her veil: “Love Above All Else”. It’s subtle yet arresting, while her asymmetrical neckline ensured a classic style with her own spin on it. Many thanks to Iluminen for this dreamy set of photos!

    Romantic and Natural Bridal Portraits at Bvlgari Resort Bali

    If you’re thinking of having a quick getaway before your wedding, consider the Bvlgari Resort Bali, as this couple did. Desiring a more “natural” and “earthy” destination, they chose this resort in Uluwatu for its magnificent sweeping views of the Indian Ocean, courtesy of its unique position of being 150 metres above sea level. Thanks for these brilliant shots, Fire, Wood & Earth!

    For their 10th anniversary, this couple fulfilled the promise they made when they got married – to return to Nungnung Waterfall Bali, where they had their honeymoon, and renew their vows. Only this time, they also had their two daughters with them. We love that behind every pretty wedding is a beautiful love story that is unique to each couple, and this story, in particular, speaks of strength, commitment, and the fulfilment of promises.

    Beach Styled Shoot With Elegant Dried Flowers

    If you fancy the idea of using dried flowers for your wedding, we say to you: do it. Pepper Suite Events, Fire, Wood & Earth, and Verena Mia fused their creative genius for this collaborative styled shoot, “Untamed”, which celebrates the spirit of being wild and free. Two décor canvases – the first bohemian and the second, a beach – lent a contrasting visual effect to the natural elements and the flowing gowns by Mia. We love the splendid ocean view all around The Asmara Nusa Dua, and the nearby semi-private beach with rocky cliffs in the background was perfect for the second styled shoot. The gowns – one a soft grey-blue tone and the other, a pale mauve – were made of layers of silk…
