Overlooking the Indian Ocean, and surrounded by the serenity and tranquility of the beautiful island of Bali, Real Bride Choco exchanged marriage vows with her groom in a stunning romantic clifftop ceremony.
Balinese wedding photographers Iluminen captured the raw emotion and candid intimacy of the day, as well as the exotic beauty of the venue, in their contemporary yet timeless style.
'It was a beautiful day with all our loved ones in the Island of Gods. The feeling, touching and loving and all the moments are truly beautiful that we will treasure forever.'
Taking inspiration from stylist and designer Mary Lennox, Choco opted for a neutral colour scheme and minimalist theme as she planned the details of the wedding with help from Glow wedding and event planner
Ethereally elegant, Choco wore a customised Isabella gown by Liz Martinez Bridal on her wedding day. The delicate tulle wedding dress with applique floral design was ordered from Singapore fine art bridal retailer Truly Enamoured and featured a dramatic full skirt with train, for a perfect bridal silhouette.
She accessorised her wedding gown with a low updo and subtle make-up by Zhou Wei, classic white Romy 100pumps by Jimmy Choo, and added the finishing touches to her look with jewellery from Easy Piecey.
Bringing out the true romance in her look, Choco selected our cut edge silk style wedding veil with extra long blusher 'Layla'. The layers of silk style tulle created a dreamy soft drape for an enchanting result, without adding extra volume to her bridal aesthetic.
The azure tones of the Indian Ocean acted as a tropical backdrop for the exquisite outdoor wedding ceremony held at Tirtha Uluwatu in Bali. The venue was decorated with pampas grass arrangements and fairy-lights, and guests sat on wooden chairs awaiting the bride's arrival.
String quartet Moira Ensembles played during the ceremony, and Choco carried a glorious neutral-toned bouquet of lunaria, pampas grass, and baby's breath by Sweetbella Decorations.
Reunited before the celebrant, the couple then exchanged vows in front of their friends and family, declaring:
'I will love you today, I will love you tomorrow and I will love you forever'
Wedding guests were treated to an unforgettable meal provided by the award-winning catering team, Bali Miracle Catering and a deliciously contemporary cake by Butter bakery.
Following the meal, the newly-weds took to the dancefloor to Unsteady by X Ambassadors for their first dance, before inviting the rest of the wedding party to join them as they danced into the evening to wedding band Manja.
Thank you so much for sharing these stunning images of your wedding day with us Choco. The Layla veil was a perfect partner for your beautiful gown. We hope you both enjoyed your honeymoon in Bali and we wish you both the best of luck and happiness for your future together.
