Destination Wedding – Elegant Cliff Edge Ceremony In Bali

When it comes to planning a destination wedding you have a whole world of venues to choose from and so it makes sense that finding and selecting the perfect venue is one of the biggest decisions that a couple getting married abroad makes.

 

Once you’ve found an incredible venue or a locale surrounded by breathtaking scenery it needs far less dressing up on the big day too which is much more practical for a destination wedding and will be easier on your budget.

 

So whilst we are on the subject of stop-you-in-your-tracks wedding venues, please take a moment to browse through today’s utterly A-mazing destination day in Bali!!

 

We have certainly had our fair share of show-stopping weddings on the blog but I think that I can safely say that Alila Villas in Uluwatu is up there when it comes to the most awe-inspiring wedding locations. The modern architectural design and elegantly poised cliff edge location of the ceremony venue is just WOW. Oh and the totally unobstructed sea views…all you can see is the Balinese sun twinkling on the crests of the ocean waves. *Sigh*

 

So sit back and enjoy getting swept away by Tess and Peter’s simply stunning destination wedding, captured to perfection (as always) by the talented PhotoFactory Bali team.

It’s the first day of September (I know, how did that happen?!) which officially heralds the beginning of autumn here in the UK. Right on cue we are enduring a grey, wet and windy day weather-wise, however the holiday and destination wedding season is still in full swing…there’s always a pocket of sunshine to be found somewhere in the world!

 

So to brighten up this breezy day and to take our minds off the fact that winter is on its way, comes today’s beautiful beach wedding in the US Virgin Islands.

 

Christina and Adam left behind cool, foggy San Francisco and jetted off to the Caneel Bay Resort located within 170 lush acres of the Virgin Islands National Park. Spectacular azure waters and bleached white sand created a dreamy beach ceremony setting whilst pretty pops of turquoise and flashes of tropical pink gave a vibrant finish to this darling destination wedding.

Amber & Matt   ♥   Isla Popa, Panama

Even when it’s a lovely sunny Monday morning you can’t beat a little escapism and a few stolen moments dreaming of faraway shores…and since we’re talking long distance wanderlust, how does jetting off to the paradise islands of Panama sound? Dreamy yet adventurous right?

 

So, grab yourself a coffee and take a quick peek at today’s inspiration as I have a feeling that you’ll love the look of idyllic Isla Popa (the second largest island in the beautiful Bocas del Toro Archipelago in north west Panama). Not only a heavenly honeymoon location, the outstanding natural beauty and crystal clear waters of Isla Popa have become a new favourite when it comes to far flung destination weddings. When’s the next flight?
