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.”
