If you don’t already know, Bali is a magical place. There is a special vibe to it that can’t be explained and can only be experienced. It’s beautiful culture and traditions that date back to hundreds of years ago dictate the beauty of its gentle and kind Balinese people, a touching and tender culture that shows so much respect to lives and the world around us. Let’s not forget the food – did you know that the Babi Guling (roasted pork) was once a dish served only at grand ceremonies to honour the Gods? The Bebek Betutu (Spiced Duck) used to be served only to the Kings and Queens. That was in the days of yore, but today the beauty behind its preparation and tradition will continue to lend a regal touch to your special day.

Traditional Balinese dances are enchanting tales depicting the glory of the Gods and noble warriors, delicate princesses and charming princes that once lived. You’ll fall in love with every delicate movement, the hypnotizing music of the gamelan, the costumes, smiles and flutter of every eyelid as the dancers charm you and your loved ones into another world full of magic and wonder. They say that every movement in a Balinese traditional dance are actually prayers to the Gods - what a great benchmark to begin your happily ever after. Let’s not forget the breathtaking sunsets. Imagine standing atop a sweeping cliff top as the waves crash hundreds of feet below you, the warm wind embracing you and the sounds of nature all about you. It’s one of the most surreal sights you’ll ever see – a Balinese sunset. The sky is a multitude of colours; it is God’s canvas itself celebrating the union of you and your loved one as you look into each other’s eyes and say “I do”.
