Real Life Wedding: Kate & Andy – Bali

Kate and Andy Matheson got hitched at The Samaya Seminyak in Bali on 1 October 2014.

The Bali destination wedding of Kate and Andy looked like so much fun we wish we could have been there! A stunning flower petal aisle, gorgeously decorated altar on the beach and dancing under the stars – what’s not to love?
