Luxe Destination Wedding in Bali
We're whisked away to beautiful Bali today, courtesy of a very talented WS favorite, Oliver Fly. He may be based in Paris, but his travels and destination weddings always blow us away. Together with Bali Event Styling, this dreamy and exotic Bali wedding took shape. We initially loved the obvious pieces - the epic scenery and the oceanside ceremony. When we took a deeper look, we felt inspired by the elegant aesthetic, which when paired with this famously stunning location created a timeless oceanside wedding design....
From Bali Event Styling: "Khayangan Estate is Bali’s — if not Asia’s — quintessential destination wedding venue. Every square meter of the property, from the moment one enters through its imposing teak wood gates, evokes an authentic aura of timeless elegance, an otherworldly environment that caters to modern day fantasies.
Our approach to the shoot was fine art with tropical accents melding soft pastels with a mixture of import and local florals and greeneries, stylish natural wood decor - Balinese arch and Louis chairs — with a spritz of gold cutlery, gilded tea lights, and crystal glassware for elegant effect.
Our wear florals featured Peonia, Astilbe, Astrantia, Eucalyptus populus. Eucalyptus nicolii, Bouvardia and Hellebores. The tablescape consisted of the same with additional Eustoma, Rose. and Frangipani, the latter lending a Balinese hint. Table was layered with light grey linen table cloth, two toned silk runners, accented by silk ribbons and soft pink linen napkins.
Local marble in soft tone creams was used for soap favours that also included an accent of frangipani flower and leaves. We positioned Elephant ear leaves, coconuts, and vines at the entrance of the aisles. For the flower shower we used Frangipani inside a woven basket made from coconut leaves.
The natural wood wedding arch with Balinese carvings featured a floral mix of Anemones, Smilax, Astrantia, Ammimajus, Israeli cuscus and Salix. We created welcome drinks using kelapa muda (young coconuts) with Frangipani flower, leafs, and sporting all natural bamboo straws."
