Well my bridesmaid duties are over, sad as it sounds, it was a very special experience that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Please excuse the fact that this post should have been up a month ago?! I must admit, it has been sort of tough going back to my state of ‘normalcy’ after the holidays. Don’t we all wish that our holidays would continue on forever?
Looking at these photos of the place that we stayed for the wedding and remembering all the fun times we had, no wonder normalcy kind of sucks! I mean look at that sunshine…pure gold. I say this as I type with numb, freezing fingers on a wintery Perth night.
It has been over a month since I went over to Bali for my best friend’s wedding where I stood by her side on her special day. Such an amazing experience and so many tears of joy shed and memories that will stay ingrained in my mind. However, the tan lines have certainly started to fade and it is a reminder that I have to save up for my next trip to Bali! Being on holiday with the kids was fun but it wasn’t a ‘relaxing’ holiday, weddings are pretty hectic and with kids it can get stressful. So in short I’m just saying…Bali would be a romantic paradise without kids. Plus, I was being anal mummy because I was so concerned that one of mine would fall sick and have the dreaded ‘Bali Belly’ gastro. So I had to play the water-nazi when it came to my kids coming in contact with Bali water.
We got to dine at the Echo Beach restaurant and capture this mesmerizing sunset. Every sunset in Bali is truely magnificant!
Overall the wedding was magical, it was set near the beach in Canggu amongst the backdrop of a warm, Bali sunset. Michelle and David were made for each other, all the family and friends certainly could see that. As for the evening reception, it was only a few steps away from the ceremony location, and as it turned to dusk the twinkling fairy lights and candles lit up the place and the faces of the guests. It was the ultimate fairy tale wedding. The bride herself wore a Betty Tran designer gown, it was a champagne colour, sheer back, hand beaded dress. And the bridesmaids wore a corn flower blue chiffon dress from ForeverNew.
It was just such an amazing night full of love, happiness and serenity… what a great start to their married life together! Love those two.
