    An Enchanted Evening At Villa Karang Putih In Bali

    There’s beauty to be found in the simplicity of a classic church wedding. This couple’s nuptials were a mix of cultures and traditions, incorporating a church wedding, a Chinese tea ceremony and a modern reception. We especially love the romantic garden shots from the reception, featuring fairy lights, geometric frames, lush greenery and that perfect sunset lighting. Many thanks to Iluminen Photography for this amazing set of wedding photos!

    A Navy Blue Sunset Garden Wedding in Bali

    Saying ‘I do’ to the love of your life must be pretty special, but getting to have your first kiss overlooking a Balinese sunset, with all your loved ones in attendance to witness your union, must be out of this world amazing. This couple took everything in stride, even when their ringbearer lost their wedding rings an hour before the bride had to walk down the aisle! They decided to go ahead anyway, with a borrowed symbolic ring from a bridesmaid. (They never found the ring.) Their wedding stuck to a simple, clean white palette with varying shades of blue: from royal blue for the bridesmaids to bright cobalt for…

    A Contemporary White And Lilac Wedding At Semara Luxury Villa Resort

    Sometimes in life we need to take a leap of faith and just believe. This bride saw pictures and booked the venue, Semara Uluwatu, which many might say was an irrational thing for her to do. But she didn’t regret it and it turned out absolutely jaw dropping. Trust your gut feeling when choosing all your vendors, otherwise there will be no end to your search. Another beautiful set by Terralogical. Yess: “Our officiant James Sietstra’s personal anecdotes of me and Paco made the occasion more meaningful and not just ceremonious. He’s Paco’s best friend from college who knows the both of us very well. We kept our vows very…

    Misty Rainforest Wedding At Puri Wulandari, Ubud

    It rained during this wedding but Terralogical did a perfect job – everything looked beautiful, just as the bride described it. In fact, the white umbrellas and the view overlooking those misty mountains made the wedding seem almost magical. Ricarda, the bride, revealed their three day wedding programme to us and showed us how they got so much quality time in at a destination wedding.

    Two Sides Of Bali In One Wedding

    The thing about having an outdoor wedding is you can never really predict what will happen. Sometimes things can get complicated, especially if it’s also a destination wedding that all your guests are flying in for. But here’s the truth: your wedding can still be very fun and memorable if you don’t allow circumstances to affect you. We’ve seen many couples thrive in spite of wedding hiccups, so here’s another story to inspire you! Xerxes: “We were actually affected by the ash cloud in Bali, so two days before our wedding all flights were cancelled! In the end we had 18 cancellations and I wasn’t sure that my father would…

    Getting Married In Their Favourite Place In The World

    There are many places to explore in this world, yet there are places that you don’t mind visiting again and again. Perhaps it has some sort of magic that captures both your hearts, and makes you feel at home instantly. Bali is that place for many, and it is not surprising that its beautiful venues and hospitality have enticed many from all around the world to have their wedding there.

    A Contemporary Buddhist Destination Wedding Ceremony

    Though we’ve seen Buddhist wedding ceremonies in Thailand before, this one is exceptionally gorgeous. Vera got to walk down that aisle with its beautiful floral arch at the end, just like any stunning destination wedding in Bali, but without sacrificing her religion. This is the beauty of understanding that religion isn’t only within the confines of a place of worship, but that it is part of one’s everyday life. Thanks, Snap Story Pictures, for this lovely story. We love your photography and videography work very much! Verawati: “Everything went well. It’s hard to say which was the most memorable moment, but if I had to choose, I would go with…

    A Glamorous Outdoor Wedding At Villa Tamarama Uluwatu

    Melissa has a very big family, and in order to keep their wedding small and personal, she and Michael decided to have it in Bali. They both love Southeast Asia, the sun, the culture and the beautiful landscape of Bali so it was the perfect choice. Thanks, Terralogical, for always sharing with us these beautiful destination weddings in Bali. Melissa: “My favourite part of my dress was the belt, which was actually handmade. The roses were attached to a metal belt and the entire piece was gold plated, then a talented dressmaker attached a bow with ties to the back so it could all come together. I absolutely loved it;…

    Many Cultures, One Union

    The beauty of traditional design elements combined with a modern touch. In design school, we learned that beauty is meaningless without a concept or reason. Designs with meaning impart something to the people who encounter them. The great thing about Asia is our rich culture. We take it for granted sometimes, but Mary and Jeffrey have breathed new life into it for us. Mary grew up in the Philippines, but did her law degree in the Netherlands. Jeffrey grew up in the US, and lived in France and Senegal while in the Peace Corp before making the move to Indonesia. We are privileged to get to see this lovely couple’s…
