Bali Wedding Planner
When I got the call to go to Bali, a place I’d dreamed off since forever, I think my heart stopped for a good two minutes. I held my breath until I knew we had secured the wedding, our first exotic destination one at White+White, and think I’ve still been holding it ever since. I had a massive spring in my step for other reasons too but as soon as I landed, I knew Bali would turn out to be one of those special places I’d never forget. The wedding was held in Lombok, an island 30 minutes by tiny plane across from Bali. It’s a much more stripped back version of Bali. Quiet, unassuming and with masses of natural beauty. It was refreshing to leave the addictive hustle and bustle of Bali and sail peacefully at sunrise around the coastline watching the fishermen catching their livelihood. The Tugu hotel where we stayed was one of the comfiest beds I’ve ever slept in and with a drop dead gorgeous pristine beach outside our room, we were super spoilt. After de stressing here, it was onto the magical wedding, one of the most stunning destination weddings you can imagine! Beach front and in prime sunset position, the waves rolled in gently with a hypnotic sound to compliment the bridal entrance. It had poured buckets alllllllll day long and the amount of sun dancing I did would raise a few eyebrows. However, it must have worked because 30 minutes before the ceremony was due to begin, the rain ceased and the sun blessed us with the kind of sunset you only see in photographs, convinced they’ve been edited within an inch of their lives. The reception was held back at the private villa, with an infinity pool that looked like it would seep straight into the ocean. With lanterns, magnolia flowers and flickering flames dancing on the water, it made for a magical setting. After a stunning mermaid inspired photo shoot the next day on Gili T, I was finally able to relax into island life. A day spent snorkelling and pottering about the gorgeous island could have turned into 3 but it was back to Seminyak for some serious r+r. The Oazia Villa’s promised butler service, massages, breakfast and a private pool. And boy did they deliver. Our eyes couldn’t actually believe what we were seeing. Beautiful pathways, stunning architecture, an ammmmmazing pool to play in and stunning rice paddy views made this place one of the most special places I’ve stayed. Sure it would have been nice to have longer in Bali to try out the renowned W Hotel, but we settled for a last supper there instead. Try their beef curry and prawn dishes with a virgin cocktail, they’re seriously good… Other highlights (so many I don’t want to spoil your surprise) included uber cool Potato Head and Ku De Ta for sunset cocktails and dinner. Funky beach tunes not dissimilar to what you’ll find in my beloved Ibiza meant we instantly felt right at home. Watching the stars come out at Ku De Ta is not to be missed.
