It didn’t take long for Fe + Francis to decide what they wanted from their big day… A wedding stripped to its very core, the union of two souls and a celebration of love, no glitz and glam. Intriguing, right? They planned an intimate Bali event for 50 guests – very different than your typical Indonesian wedding, but totally them – and the result was a sophisticated event with romance written all over it.
Thanks to Angga Permana Photo, who Fe says is one of the best in Bali. Noted!
Fe wanted a gown that would be different from every other bride, so she went with this laser cut, organza dress. She explains, Instead of world-class designer-labels, we opted for a piece by a talented local designer, for the sake of originality. Derived from the dreamy vision of the bride, subsequently sewn from scratch with a final personal touch of hand-painted design incorporated into the gown through laser cut. Dreamy is right!
The bridal bouquet recipe: White roses, tube roses, white freesia, green hydrangea, green leucospernum & other greeneries
On the day of our wedding, our décor was a portrayal of subtle elegance and the pureness of white. Sunset Cabana was basking in golden sunshine, white floral arrangements and ornaments, embellishing the beauty of the wooden structure as it already was. The ceremony began just before sunset with white petals down the aisle, tingling crystals above our heads, and the perfect shade of blue as backdrop, that of the clear sky and the Indian Ocean. Nothing could be more perfect.
And their first dance was to… John Legend’s All Of Me. Yessss.
Some parting notes… With less than a year to plan, their biggest hurdle was ensuring that all the vendors they wanted were available. They ended up changing their date three times to get everyone in! Fe’s tip for a destination wedding like theirs? Negotiate everything!
Cheers you two!
