Finally I’m getting to the wedding part of the trip. Quite a number of photos that you will see from the wedding is courtesy of John Lim. He’s a fantastic wedding photographer and an old acquaintance. That’s him at the breakfast table with us in the photo below.
Woke up bright and early for a good hearty breakfast before heading out to The Khayangan Estate.
It was a long bumpy ride to this secluded private sanctuary. Away from the maddening crowd in a small cluster of resorts on the cliff tops of Uluwatu and just next to the Bvlgari Estates.
As you can see, the flowers have already been set up in lieu of the wedding. Hydrangeas are Sushi’s favorite and she managed to get them for her deco even though they weren’t exactly in season at that time.
This living room was used for the as the briefing room for the rehearsal and guests would be able to view the wedding albums here as well.
The first time I saw this sight, with the infinity pool overlooking the endless sea, my heart was stolen. Instantaneously, I fell in love with this place. Later on, I realized that there are infinity pools all over this place and private ones in front of the villas too!
Most of the staff were still working on the setup and deco for the wedding.
Above are some shots of the bride and myself while waiting for the rehearsal to begin.
These little fresh flowers you see on small leaf boxes are all over Bali. Every house, every shop and every car has them. It’s an offering to the Gods that they do everyday to ask for blessings.
The solemnization was to take place under a canopy of beautiful flowers with the earth, sky and sea as witness to Daryl and Sushi’s everlasting love.
The groomsmen getting their placings and instructions while waiting for the bride and her dad to walk down the isle.
The wedding planner was really experienced so rehearsal went really smoothly without a hitch! It was really hot though so we baked (though rather happily) in the sun. The Bali rain stopper that they hired to keep the rain clouds at bay did a fantastic job!
Here are the pretty flower posies for the bridesmaids.
The villas in Khayangan Estate is nothing short of breathtaking. It was everything you could dream off and more… I could stay there and not miss the outside world at all! Pure unadulterated indulgence and relaxation.
The front of the glass villa sports a daybed overlooking a private infinity pool while the bathroom is the size of a studio apartment and makes up almost half the villa!
In th rear of the villa, is a louts pond with it’s own daybed and smack in the middle of the pond, there’s an outdoor bathtub!
For those of you who want to see more of the estate, you can take a look at my previous Club Couture post as the photos were taken here as well.
And since rehearsal ended early, some of us decided to enjoy ourselves in the pools for good fun!
Lunch in the dining room signaled the end to our swim and the beginning to the real preparations for the wedding!
Here’s a short video for you to enjoy.
