Why did you choose a destination wedding?
We wanted to celebrate our wedding in a location that was special to us and share an intimate, relaxed and unique experience with our family and friends.
Why did you select the destination and venue you did?
Bali has been our favourite holiday destination for many years. We chose the St Regis Resort because it offered an intimate and exclusive venue in a location that was convenient for our travelling guests.
Did you have guests attend, and if so, what was their reaction to you having a destination wedding?
We had 66 guests attend our wedding. Our family and friends were very excited to learn about our destination wedding in Bali. For many, it was also a great reason to have a holiday together after our wedding celebrations and to enjoy each other’s company.
What is your favourite memory of the day?
Our flower girl and page boy walking me down the aisle and seeing Nick amongst all our guests who were present to witness our wedding vows was the highlight. It meant so much to Nick and I that our guests had travelled so far to be there on our special day.
What was the best thing about having a destination wedding?
It allowed our guests to enjoy their trip to Bali in a beautiful holiday setting. We had organised sightseeing events and food tours before and after our wedding which allowed our guests to fully appreciate the island’s charm and culture.
What theme or style did you base your wedding decorations on?
For the reception, glass vases with peach, pink and white flowers adorned tables. At night a LOVE sign complemented by chandeliers and light bulbs softly lit in the background of the dance floor as we had our first dance.
How did your wedding coordinator assist you?
Dwi Mahanani from St Regis was great to work with. She was our point of contact for the various vendors and services that we had requested for our event and was available to us on email and conference calls throughout our wedding planning journey.
Did you honeymoon in the same location?
We decided to honeymoon in the Greek Islands in the spring season. Our destination wedding at St Regis felt like a honeymoon.
