I love the stylish elegance of Rebecca and Sam’s big day in Bali. The beautiful rose bouquets, the bride’s fabulous fishtail frock, her graceful sweeping veil and the suave and stylish groom and groomsmen – this is one super-chic soiree that effortlessly enhances the sunshiny setting of Bingin Beach in Bali.

 

Quirky and cool décor (hello giant inflatable swans and oversized light-up love letters!) added extra personality and flair to this already unforgettable destination wedding location.

 

So enjoy taking a peek at this cute couple’s dashing destination wedding – it certainly might persuade you to tie the knot in Bali!

Destination Wedding – It’s Gonna Be A Bright Sunshiny Day In Bali

Bree & David   ♥   Bali, Indonesia

Photographer:   PhotoFactory Bali

 

The first thing I noticed when I opened up Bree and David’s beautiful destination wedding photos was the piercing clear-blue sky. There isn’t a single cloud in the sunny sky and it’s that deep, vibrant shade of blue that you just can’t take your eyes off, it’s just that perfect.

 

However…once I started to read this cute couple’s story, I realised that they nearly didn’t have this scorcher of a day as a backdrop to their destination wedding! They were meant to tie the knot the day before but there was a bit of a crazy turn in the weather. Luckily they managed to postpone the entire wedding until the next day.

 

It just shows that when you’re getting married abroad, it doesn’t matter where in the world you choose, you still can’t guarantee or control the weather! But there’s never any need to stress about these things either, as there is always a solution and it couldn’t have worked out better that Bree and David married the following day as they got to enjoy the most glorious day and said “I Do’ with the best of the Balinese sunshine smiling down on them.

Real Wedding – Sunshiny Soiree At Mick’s Place, Bali

Kate & Mark   ♥   Bali, Indonesia

If someone asked me where I thought the best destination wedding location was, I’d find it soooo hard to choose but if I had to pick just one, then I might just have to say Bali.

 

Every wedding that appears in my inbox from the faraway shores of Bali has me instantly addicted. It’s not just the pristine beaches, lush tropical scenery and spectacular choice of luxury hotels and venues that Bali has to offer, the wedding scene here just seems so well organised as well! With super-talented teams on hand, this Indonesian island is well versed when it comes to planning a wedding, and it seems to enable every couple’s destination ‘I Do’ to simply shine with character and flair.

 

Kate and Mark’s sunshiny soiree at the magical Mick’s Place, Bali is no exception to this rule; their day radiates with personality and style. From Kate’s beautiful beaded Jenny Packham gown which shimmered in the sunlight to her fabulous flower crown, from their vibrant turquoise theme and chevron print table runners to the charming customised quote boards, handmade favours and table settings – this is a personalised destination wedding done oh-so-right.

Elopements have become increasingly popular in recent years. Many of the elopements featured on You Mean The World To Me have been of couples that want to get married and legally bind their unity but they simply didn’t want the fuss, the expense or the stress of organising a traditional big white wedding.

 

This is also true of most of the destination wedding couples featured on the blog too, they get hitched overseas as they want to do things a little differently, escape the complications of planning ‘normal’ nuptials back home and they get to enjoy a trip of a lifetime with their loved ones whilst they’re at it!

 

Whatever your personal reasons are for eloping or getting married abroad, there is no denying that the beautiful island of Bali creates one of the most breathtaking backdrops for saying ‘I Do.’ Once you see the stunning scenery from today’s elegant elopement you’ll find it hard to want to tie the knot anywhere else!

 

Caroline and Matt wisely chose magical Mick’s Place for their elopement in Bali. Positioned on the cliff at Binging Beach, this Polynesian-influenced bungalow resort enjoys unrestricted views of the Indian Ocean.

 

I guarantee that you’ll love everything about this laid-back wedding day; from Caroline’s graceful gown that she teamed with beach-ready barefoot sandals, to the bright tropical blooms and traditional Balinese ceremony, from the casual surfing influences to the enchanting sunset wedding dinner that the couple shared, this is truly a dream destination wedding.

Real Wedding – I Dreamed A Dream In Bali

Leanne & Luke   ♥   Bali, Indonesia

You’ve got to love a good international love story! The chance encounter’s halfway around the world, where a lovely pair randomly meet and find the one they’re going to marry; it’s what the word serendipity was surely made for!

 

Well, today’s darling duo has an equally lovely tale of fate to tell. Leanne is from Wales in the UK and Luke lives in Tasmania. Travel brought them to each other in Tasmania (where they were introduced by a mutual friend) as Leanne was travelling the world. They had a whirlwind romance, fell in love and decided to get hitched, so Leanne started planning to move and set up a new life in Tasmania with Luke and his adorable twin boys. I know…it’s like the perfect romantic movie script!

 

Due to them both being travel fans and since the guests that would be invited to their wedding would be from every corner of the globe, they decided that a destination wedding somewhere neutral would be the most suitable big day for them.

 

Leanne had dreamt of saying “I Do” in breathtaking Bali and it seemed the picture-perfect place for friends and family from around the world to meet and celebrate their nuptials. And a dream wedding it was too, from Leanne’s dazzling Jenny Packham dress to the magical cliff top venue, they had their day their way and it was literally a dream come true.

Real Wedding – We Both Thought Of Bali

Missy & Murray   ♥   Bali, Indonesia

Photographer:   PhotoFactory Bali

 

Missy and Murray both had Bali in mind as their perfect destination wedding location long before they were even engaged, proving that they were made for each other and that Bali was the perfect fit.

 

After travelling the island of Bali together on holiday, the couple chose the tropical paradise (and surfing hotspot) of Bingin Beach for their nuptials. Mick’s Place was the venue of choice as it offers the ultimate Bali getaway; secluded bungalow accommodations with infinity pools are situated on top of a cliff with uninterrupted vistas of the vast Indian Ocean – amazing!

 

They kept their wedding theme simple and let the venue and the views do the talking – one of the distinct advantages of getting married abroad is that the location delivers the ‘wow’ factor.

Missy says:

“We chose Bali as both of us had been there separately. When we were first dating, we had a conversation that started with, Bride: ‘I’m not thinking of getting married, but IF we did, I have a place in mind.’ Groom: ‘Oh really…I actually have a place in mind too…if we ever got married.’  We both thought of Bali. Then we vacationed there a year later, touring the island by scooter and living out of a small backpack. It was there that we planted the seed. Bali was the perfect place for us because the people are so genuine, with deep smiles that come from their souls. Of course it’s beautiful offering diving, hiking, and many picturesque activities as well.”

“We both were inspired by the culture and people of Bali. We knew in this place with such acceptance and love of others we could truly be ourselves. We had Balinese Prince Dewa and his wife Kartika help officiate our most beautiful ceremony. We wanted our guests to feel the culture of Bali and they did. The Prince brought a native Hawaiian flute, an African horn, his amazing chanting and grounding voice, and special offerings as a symbol of our ceremony.  It took place on a 300foot cliff-side overlooking an amazing surfers playground (the Indian Ocean) with the most killer sunset.”
