How did you meet?
We were introduced by a mutual friend at the Bowery Bar in Fortitude Valley.
Tell us about the proposal…
Oak Alley Plantation, New Orleans
Key Styling Inspiration
Walking down the aisle an inch above the water was an incredible experience. We were married on a floating floor in the middle of the swimming pool overlooking one of Bali’s premier coastlines.
What was the funniest moment of the day?
That awkward nervousness as we load testing the brand new floating floor with 22 people fully dressed on the day of the wedding.
What was the special memory of the day?
With one waiter per guest, I knew the day was going to be something special. From the Michelin Star food to the beachfront location. My celebrant was my brother. He was appointed by the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster especially for our day.
A very special thanks must go to Evan Pavlakis, General Manager of The Chedi Sakala, Bali. Chef Frederic Boulay, Janick Couturier F&B Director, Sapta Dewi and the whole Sakala Team.
Do you have any advice for future brides-to-be?
If your days does not go to exactly to plan, its not the end of the world, take a deep breath and enjoy your special day.
