Bohemian Bali Beach Wedding

When you have the words Bohemian Bali Beach Wedding in one title (a tongue twister I know!) you know it’s going to be a wedding to remember! Gorgeous couple Jake + Ani invited 45 of their loved ones to celebrate with them in beautiful Bali, and with a barefoot bride rocking a Grace Loves Lace gown, and a groom with sweet musical skills, you just know these lovebirds threw one heck of a party (yes, Im gutted you didn’t invite me!). A huge thank you to Jake + Ani, and photographers Iluminen for sharing this inspiring destination wedding with us xox

The love story began…

In 2010 when Jake caught site of Ani in a busy atmosphere and was drawn to her beauty and charisma from a distance. It wasn’t until several weeks later an encounter by chance brought them together where they chatted and danced together all night.

“We very rapidly fell head over heels in love and moved to Whitianga to begin a beautiful adventure together and create a beautiful family. In 2015 we planned the most amazing destination wedding in Uluwatu, surf villas in Bali. The venue, wedding planner, photographer and everyone involved provided us with a wedding we only ever dreamed of. Our love continues to grow stronger as we grow together.”

I said yes… February 2014 Hahei NZ

We saved on… Music! Husband and friends played live music most of the night.

We splurged on… Location.

Our advice to engaged couples… 

Don’t sweat the small stuff, keeping numbers down makes it so much more enjoyable and having a wedding planners was the best decision EVER!!
